Pro Tips..

Here are some tips to help you get better results on dating apps:

1. Use high-quality and recent photos. Avoid using outdated or blurry photos.

2. Write a thoughtful and interesting bio that highlights your hobbies, passions, and personality traits. Be honest and authentic, and avoid cliches or generic statements.

3. Be proactive and initiate conversations with matches. Start with a friendly and personalised message that shows your interest in getting to know them better. Don't copy and paste the same message to everyone as our algorithm may think you are Spamming and "eject" you. Also as this is a community, people talk, and you will look cheap and lazy by sending duplicate messages to everyone.

4. Avoid being overly aggressive or pushy. Respect their boundaries and take things at a comfortable pace, and avoid making assumptions or projecting your expectations onto them.

5. Be patient and persistent. Finding the right match can take time, and there may be some unsuccessful encounters along the way. Stay positive and stay true to yourself, and you'll eventually meet someone who appreciates you for who you are

6. Like others posts and comment, interact with people. Sitting there like a sitting duck will not get you very far, mingle!
