The Dirty Tinder Hack to Get Her to Swipe Right:

When it comes to learning how to get more matches on Tinder, we have to start with a woman’s perspective:

Tinder Hack #1: A woman's experience on Tinder is like a cat staring at a mountain of hotdogs and if you're not getting matches on Tinder then you have to learn how to stand out from all the other hotdogs!

Even somewhat cute women will be overrun with options. Meaning that if we’re not getting matches on Tinder it’s because we, as men, have to stand out from the crowd if we want success. And it makes sense when you stop to think about it. It’s only natural for there to be lots of other men besides you on the app, asking themselves how to get more Tinder hookups and trying to figure out why they’re not getting matches on Tinder.

Thankfully and truthfully, when you arm yourself with some of these dirty Tinder hacks you’ll realize the bar’s not too high. Which is great news for us! With some small effort, we can be one of the ‘lucky bastards’ everyone looks at with envy! And it starts with first understanding the mysterious Tinder ELO score as well as ‘the rules’. 

How Does Tinder Work?

You might have heard about how the makers of the app have a secret ‘score’ and how it can make or break your online dating efforts…

But what can you do about it? What should you do about it? And what in the world is it in the first place?

What is A Tinder ELO Score?

First, what is your ELO score on Tinder? Understanding what this is, is crucial in understanding how Tinder works.

Basically, just like how in the real world how dominant (click here to learn how to become more dominant without being a stereotypical asshole nobody likes) you are makes you look hotter, having a higher ELO score makes you look hotter on the app!

To put it simply, it gives your profile a basic 1-10 score (it might not be exactly this simplistic but it does play out about the same in the real world). If your score is a one then it only shows your profile to other one’s and possibly some two’s. If it thinks your profile is an eight then it will show it to other eight’s, some seven’s and some nine’s.

Again, that might not be exactly how it works but it is more or less how it shakes out.

How Is Your Tinder ELO Score Calculated?

The app calculates your score based on your swiping habits and the swiping habits of people that look at your profile.

It gathers this data the second that you join the app. And this is also the time that your profile will be shown to the most people. This is also why I advise men to delete and re-create their profile once a month.

UPDATE: The app has started penalizing people who do this. Because of that, here’s an article by swipehelper that goes into depth about how to do this safely again (because who doesn’t want more women?)

I call it the ‘noob boost’.

In order to calculate your ELO score, Tinder needs to find out how you swipe on the app and how your profile gets swiped on the app. The only way to do this is to show your profile to a large amount of people in the first week when you’re on the app.

Hence the name ‘noob boost’.

During this noob boost the app is watching how your profile interacts with other profiles to calculate your ELO score.

If a guy swipes right on every single profile that comes his way then it assumes that he is desperate. After that, it will give those creepy, needy guys a terrible score and only show them to other, equally dreadful profiles.

If, however, the app notices that your profile gets more right swipes than a naked chick with big boobs then it will give you a higher than average ELO score. Which means more people see your profile.

That’s, more or less, how Tinder works behind the scenes.

What Not to Do to Land a Juicy Tinder Hookup: An Experiment

Interestingly enough, this doesn’t mean that you should swipe left on most profiles though.

Wondering why?

If pickier people are looked at as more attractive then shouldn’t pickiness increase our score?

The answer is yes and no

The Creation of Picky Peter and Slutty Sara

During these experiments I decided to go back to using my cell phone pictures. This was because I had the most experience in using them and could count on around 40 matches a month or so (if you want real results use a DSLR).

First, “Picky Peter”.

This guy would only swipe right around 10 percent of the time. This naive young fellow only wanted the hottest of the hot women (different from beautiful women). Only the turbo ten’s would suffice for this elitist snob!

Secondly, I created a profile of a hot woman called “Slutty Sara” (more on this in a moment).

Tinder Seduction Test Results

So what happened? Did Picky Peter crack the code on how Tinder works? Did he start drowning in nightly orgies?

Not exactly…

In fact, Picky Peter was one of the WORST profiles I’ve ever created!

What Happened?

Tinder kept showing our boy Pete profiles of women that would make Jesus himself weak in the knees Click To Tweet

It correctly assumed that he would only swipe right on the ten’s and that’s exactly what it showed him.

Sadly, Pete only managed around three matches on average for each month of testing! The best being six in one month and the worst being zero (twice!) And I ran these tests four different times.

Meanwhile, Slutty Sara swiped right on anything with a pulse during the first month. During the second she was a little more conservative after going on a man-page until during the last month she barely swiped right at all.

But during those first few months she was drowning in penises!

And yet Slutty Sara and Picky Peter never even matched…

The Shakespearean Tragedy in The Making

It started with showing Pete’s profile to everyone he swiped right on. At least, at first. Because Pete was trying to figure out how Tinder works and in turn they were trying to figure out how attractive Pete was.

Everything started out great! Until these women actually saw Pete’s profile.

They started swiping left on his profile like a dung-filled bat-cave full of snakes! After that, they found out that Pete was punching waaaaaaaaaaay out of his league. Then, it sent his profile down to play with the other one’s of the world.

Slutty Sara, on the other hand never even saw Pete’s profile during the almost-half a year of testing! Though Pete did swipe on Sara on a few of these tests the app had other plans. It decided that these star-crossed lovers should never meet.

Even though on a few of these tests Slutty Sara… well, swiped like a whore working for her rent money.

The Noob Boost in Action

Back to Pete.

For a visual representation of what happened to Pete, here’s a graph:

After an initial spike in hotness, Pete’s profile then went down to the bottom of the barrel…

Why Pete Kept Seeing The Aesthetically Gifted

The app knew that Peter would only swipe right on the turbo hotties. Therefore, that’s all that it showed him. But, it did not even show average women his profile, much less the turbo hotties he drooled over.

Why does the app do this and how can we use this to learn how to get laid on Tinder?

Simple, it wants to keep us on the app. It does this to get our hopes up.

The program knew that Pete didn’t stand a chance with the pictures he stole, but it doesn’t care. This is how it’s designed. Its only goal is to make money, not to help us figure out how to get laid on Tinder. In order to make money it needs to keep its users on the app. And if it can get Pete’s hopes up then Pete will get desperate enough to buy some boosts and whatever else it wants to sell him.

Finding Balance

That’s why you want to find balance in your own swiping habits.

Obviously I’m not telling you to swipe right on the dirty Tinder wildebeests of the world. Not only will that hurt your Tinder ELO score but it also will kill your motivation to date. At the same time though, you need to have realistic expectations. If you want hotter women then you have to get better Tinder pictures. It’s a hyper looks-focused app because that’s all there is to it. Sure, there’s a short blurb for your bio, but it doesn’t actually do you any good.

It’s all about your Tinder pics working in tandem with the two different ways to increase your Tinder ELO score:

  1. Be pickier
  2. Get more right swipes on your profile

Be Pickier

On one end of the extreme we have the Picky Peter’s of the online dating world. These guys only swipe right on the club queens of Tinder (and if these are the women you want you have to go to the club to get them).

The other extreme, are the guys who have a Slutty Sara approach. They swipe right on anything that looks remotely feminine and hope for the best.

Both are wrong. If you want to figure out how Tinder works and how to get laid on Tinder then avoid these two extremes.

Find the perfect balance between too picky and just picky enough to avoid running into the problem of having no Tinder matches.

To Get Her to Swipe Right, Follow The Rules

After figuring out how the Tinder ELO score works the next step on how to get more matches on Tinder is to work on your appearance. But not in the way you think (although yes, being fit helps tremendously).

How to Use Tinder: Follow The Two Simple Rules

On Reddit, there’s a cliche thrown around constantly known as ‘the 2 rules’ that fixes the problem of no Tinder matches:

  1. Be Attractive
  2. Don’t Be Unattractive

It sounds depressing at first, but it’s actually the best thing for us! 

No Tinder Matches? Here’s the First Dirty Tinder Hack

The first rule of getting her to swipe right covers taking care of your appearance.

It means a getting good haircut and if you’re into beards then maintain it. You’ll realize by looking at different people that men and women are different, but both genders appreciate someone who takes care of their appearance.  

Yes, Fit Men Have Higher Tinder ELO scores 

You don’t have to be a bodybuilder by any means (unless that’s what you want, and there’s a niche of women who love it). But you should strive for health if you want to get more Tinder hookups.

Learn the first rule of tinder so that you can learn how to use tinder

There’s a fantastic article on what women find as the most attractive male body type, click here to read it. 

But here’s the watered-down tl;dr version:

Find some kind of exercise you enjoy doing and do it while cleaning up your diet. You will naturally slim down into a body women, on average, find the sexiest.

A fit and healthy-looking body without obsessing over carbs, macros and everything else they talk about on fitness forums will help in your dirty Tinder seduction efforts.

A Quick Way to Fix Your Appearance:

While hitting the gym and cleaning up your diet takes time, there is one cool hack that you can apply RIGHT NOW to look more attractive: and that’s fixing your posture. Check out these two guides for more information on that:

Not Getting Matches on Tinder? Don’t Do This:

The second dirty Tinder Hack is avoid looking ugly by accident. 

Reading the above sounds a little depressing, doesn’t it? Don’t worry, the good news is that as you continue to read on you’ll realize that it’s actually incredibly easy to figure out.

This Reddit subforum is a great example of what I mean. It’s pretty girls making ugly faces.

Some of those girls are straight up hot! But you wouldn’t know it by some of the faces that they make. And just like how they make ugly faces, realize that you’re doing the same in some of your Tinder pictures.

Another way to interpret this dirty Tinder tip: present yourself well and don’t get sloppy/lazy.

Example to Help Her Swipe Right on You

Would you go on a date with a gigantic pizza stain on your shirt?

The shirt, while clean, could be the most panty-dropping and sexy shirt on the planet. But with a pizza stain, it makes anyone who wears it the ugliest person in the room because people will only focus on the stain. It’s like a giant, white zit right in the middle of our hypothetical guy’s forehead.

Likewise, in online dating don’t put up Tinder photos of yourself with an accidental double chin (like the girls in the above Reddit thread). Avoiding a double chin is following one of the rules! 

Basically, in order to take advantage of this dirty Tinder guide don’t use grainy pictures like most guys! Most guys use Tinder profile pics like this and wonder why they’re not getting matches on Tinder:

An example of some of the Tinder pics guys will use. Something that's horribly grainy and difficult to see what's even in the guys Tinder photos!

How to Take Good Tinder Pics:

  1. Quality beats everything
    1. It doesn’t matter how cool your new iPhone is, it’s not good enough. Put it down and get a real camera
  2. Puppies insert cheat codes into a woman’s heart
  3. Group pictures are good
    1. However, social pictures go at the end of your photo lineup and there should only be a single one. People want to look at beautiful people, not find Waldo
  4. No selfies
  5. Don’t lie in your photos, but do photoshop out temporary things like zits. That doesn’t mean photoshop out 25 pounds and don’t use pictures that are over two years old
  6. Be the person in your photos, and actually be in your photos
  7. Mix up your pictures. Don’t use the same outfit in more than a single photo
  8. Learn your good side and your angles. Then never take a disgustingly ugly picture again
  9. Get a body shot, a picture of your face engaging the camera and at least a single hobby picture
  10. Test everything
  11. Get her delirious with depraved desire for you after getting her out on a date:

    3. Learn How to Get a Deep, Powerful Voice That Attracts Women

Dirty Tinder Seduction Guide:

Learn how to use these dirty Tinder secrets because no Tinder matches leads to frustration.
No Tinder matches leads to frustration and asking yourself “does Tinder work?”

There’s an overwhelming amount of bitter men out there because they’re not getting any matches on Tinder and it infuriates them. It’s not because they don’t understand what they’re doing (which doesn’t help). It’s because they don’t put any thought or effort into their pictures.

And it shows.

They’re entitled and angry because they don’t put effort in and don’t understand why they’re not getting matches on Tinder.

Thankfully, you don’t have to be like those guys asking “does Tinder work?”. Together, we’ll make sure you’re better 😉

Increase Your Tinder ELO Score With This Simple Secret

Your overall online dating goal is to sell your life while looking panty-dropping good. Which means showing examples of what you like to do and what dating you would be like.

And it’s true if you’re only going for one night stands, in which case you’ll show pictures that scream “USE ME FOR SEX AND NOTHING ELSE“. Interested women will swipe right and uninterested girls will swipe left. Meaning you have to either be having fun in your pictures, or look happy in them, or in general; look like someone who believes in himself

If you’re not happy then why would anyone want to be with you?

You don’t have to smile in every picture, because you should be preoccupied with whatever you’re doing in your Tinder pictures. But you do need to smile in pictures where you’re actively engaging the camera (during your portrait picture for example). If you’re not engaged with the scene of your picture, then go ahead and engage the camera while smiling.

No amount of hotness is worth the soul-sucking bullshit of a psychic trampire

Happy people are terrific to be around whereas unhappy people make you want to stab yourself in the eye with a rusty fork.

If a guy looks unhappy then he’s ugly by accident in his Tinder pictures.

And besides, do you want to be around a woman who prefers to be around horrifically unhappy people? Or would you instead be concerned about such women?

How to Get Laid on Tinder: Determine Your Archetype 

Archetypes are a stereotype, or image. 

First, there are many disgusting archetypes as well as sexy ones.

Hazardous Archetypes:

  1. Nerd
  2. Gamer
  3. ‘Nice Guy’
  4. Creeper
  5. Immature/gang side/etc. guy
  6. Mirror selfie douchecanoe
  7. Blatantly needy

Arousing Archetypes:

  1. Successful Businessman
  2. Badboy
  3. Rock Star/Musician
  4. Hipster/Metrosexual
  5. Free Spirit/Nomad/Traveler Type
  6. Ripped/Athlete (could even go as far as a bodybuilder)
  7. Artist
  8. 007 Cool James Bond Dude
  9. Adventurer/Risk Taker
  10. Military Man
  11. Surfer/Vegan/Spiritual Type Guy

By no means a complete list, but something to start with.

Every person will naturally gravitate to one or more different archetypes. Therefore, focus on a primary one and have anything else in the background while eradicating any negative archetypes.

An Example of My Image:

Naturally, as a photographer who enjoys adventuring around and taking pictures, the Artist and Adventurer images fit my personality best.

my archetype is that I'm an Artist and Adventurer

Focus on What You Want 

You might not have ever thought about it, but what do you want from online dating, women and your life in general?

If you only want one night stands, you’ll have to use pictures appealing to women looking for a quick, raunchy fling.

On the other hand, if you want any kind of ongoing relationship (fuck buddies count) you’ll use a Tinder profile picture appealing to the women who think you’re amazing and alluring. Focusing on what you want applies doubly so if you want a serious relationship by screening out women who don’t meet your criteria.

Tinder Seduction: Focus on Your Type

In your pictures, think about the type of woman you want, even if casual relationships are your goal. Because we naturally have a type we like best who lust after us. When thinking about what type you want, use pictures more likely to be her type as long as it’s still true to you. We have different sides to us and it’s okay to only show one or two sides of yourself in your pictures.

Because then women who see your profile will find you either salaciously sexy or hideous

Which makes your life a billion times easier and it doesn’t matter if you want a fuck buddy or a wife! It will help with both because it saves you time. And instead of playing a guessing game of if she likes you or not you can instead skip that deadly headache.

But Avoid Taboo Tinder Pictures

They’re pictures like:

  • Hunting/fishing
  • Smoking
  • Anything having to do with religion
  • Having more than one group picture
  • Including your kids in your pictures (and even if you are looking for a long term relationship this picture should follow the group picture rules, which means have it in the back of your lineup)
  • And others that are similar
Want to hook up on Tinder? Don't use taboo pictures
Want to get a girl who likes to fish? Show off a picture of you actually fishing!

Just like the above picture shows, there are good ways to use certain pictures as well as bad ways. This is where men get into trouble and why I suggest getting a photographer when you want to showcase these parts of your personality. That, or don’t use ‘taboo’ pictures.

It’s one thing to show you in hunting gear actively stalking something. But it’s a completely different thing when you’re showing off your kill. One is exciting, the other is boring.

Another Example

Using myself as an example again; I go after the artistic types, preferably the ones with a camera. I’ve always liked those types and they’ve always lusted after me. Most of the time these types of women enjoy being out in nature. They enjoy traveling and exploring the world.

Therefore, my pictures aim at those women like one of Cupid’s dirty Tinder arrows. They are what are known as ‘my target market’. Having them in mind makes my life easier when getting pictures done. 

Not only that, but it’s part of who I am as a person.

This makes online dating ten times easier and even makes it fun! Because if dating isn’t fun for a guy, then he isn’t doing it right and doesn’t understand how to use Tinder to his advantage.

Keep Moving Forward
