The 7 Best Tinder Profiles For Guys (Updated 2024)

Your primary profile picture is arguably the most important part of your Tinder profile. So if you're not getting the results you want, improving your Tinder photos is likely where you want to start.

But if your pics are the strongest they can be, your bio could be what's tanking your results. First off, you need to have one. Guys with bios get more matches on Tinder.

That doesn’t mean you can put the first thing that pops into your head in your Tinder profile and call it a day.

The best Tinder profiles make women want to know more about the guys who wrote them.

And to accomplish that, you need to describe yourself in a way that instantly attracts your perfect match. Because on swipe-based dating apps you've only got one chance.

That’s not easy for most guys - but it's exactly what you have to do if you want to match with and meet the best women in your area.

Don't worry, VIDA Select's team of dating experts has your back. Not only have we written thousands and thousands of Tinder bios for clients, we've also used the app daily since it launched in 2012.

That means the Tinder profile examples you're about to get are all based on our first-hand experience and knowledge of what works in a Tinder profile - and what doesn't!

These 7 good Tinder bios for guys will not only boost your match rate, they’ll also catch the eye of the attractive women you *really* want to meet.

And at the end of this article, you’ll even get 3 proven-to-work Tinder icebreakers you can use right now!

Funny Tinder Profiles

Women have a hard time resisting a funny guy, so your Tinder bio is the perfect place to weave in some humor.

Tinder Profile Example #1:

You know researchers have found that 98.3% of men on Tinder are below 5'4", "between jobs" and list their #1 hobby as vacuuming...

The best Tinder descriptions grab her attention from the get-go, which is why this example works so well.

Here is another way to stand out from the crowd...

Tinder Profile Example #2:

Example of a funny Tinder bio that starts with "Looking for the total package? You found him - married with baby, looking for a side girl..."

Your potential match has probably had some “interesting” experiences on Tinder, so she can likely relate to the jokes you’re making at your competition’s expense.

But the humor in these examples makes a big impact on Tinder because she can relate to it.

If it’s super random, off-putting, or she doesn’t get it, there’s no emotional connection. You're just another Tinder user she put in her "nope" pile.

Tinder profiles fail

Without some kind of spark, the odds of getting a right swipe or a response to your message plummet. And why would she meet you in person if she's not vibing with you on the app?

You can find inspiration for a funny Tinder bio in all kinds of places, from movie reviews...

Tinder Profile Example #3:

Example of a funny Tinder profile that follows a movie review format, with quotes from people.

To a simple but witty pros and cons list.

Tinder Profile Example #4:

Example of a funny Tinder profile that follows a pros & cons format.

Women are particularly drawn to personality traits such as bravery and courage, so start there when you’re customizing these examples to fit your personality.

Dating app profiles are short. Every word has the potential to alter her first impression of you.

Negativity in general is a no-no, as a positive impression is what drives her interest.

Even the “Cons” in the example above are still presented in a positive, humorous way.

Here’s what it looks like when you get it wrong:

Example of a bad Tinder bio

Prison, works a lot of hours, lots of strength and patience required… no thanks.

Portray yourself as an intriguing, fun guy to hang out with, and potential matches will swipe right to learn more about you. And, more importantly, move the conversation off the app.

“Serious” Doesn’t Mean Boring

If you’re in the market for a committed relationship on this popular dating app, you may want to take a more serious approach to your profile.

You’re looking for the Total Package, so show her why you deserve that title too.

Tinder Profile Example #5:

Example of a down to earth style Tinder bio for men.

Even though this example is on the longer side for a good Tinder bio, it’s still easy to read. That’s essential!

People are generally more drawn to text that is skimmable and quick to comprehend.

Compare the profile above with this real-life Tinder bio example:

Tinder bio example that's way too long.

Oh, what a difference line breaks make.

Using simple language makes you seem both more intelligent and likable - exactly what a perfect Tinder profile should do.

Emoji are a shortcut to simplicity that also happens to pack a ton of visual interest.

Tinder Profile Example #6:

Tinder profile that uses emoji to attract attention and convey information.

Emoji can do the heavy lifting for your entire profile.

Tinder Profile Example #7:

Short Tinder profile using emoji to stand for concepts.

It’s only a handful of characters, but she still learns enough about you to pique her interest.

Igniting a spark of curiosity is essential.

The average woman spends around an hour and a half on Tinder each day, and if she’s a millennial that translates to 7.6 minutes for each swiping session.

In other words, your potential matches are looking at a lot of Tinder profiles. Bios like this aren’t going to jolt anyone out of auto-swipe mode:

Before you check out the bonus Tinder icebreakers, let's quickly recap some profile do's and don'ts.

If you want to have one of the best Tinder profiles she's ever seen, then...

  1. Make sure your humor is appealing. If you're not sure, run it by a friend (preferably one who's a girl).
  2. Preview your Tinder bio. You can do this from the "Edit Info" screen. It defaults to "Edit" mode, so simply tap "Preview" and you'll see your dating profile the same way she does. Look for things that make your profile hard to skim, like strange line breaks or lack of punctuation.
  3. Include details about your hobbies and interests. Not only will it make you seem more genuine, but according to a recent survey the majority of daters would prefer to see more information in a profile than more photos.

And make sure you don't...

  • Underestimate the power of typos. For many women, poor grammar, words spelled or used incorrectly and other seemingly small details like that could be the difference between a left and a right swipe.
  • Default to clichés. You may truly love to laugh, take long walks on the beach and try new things, but the best Tinder profiles put an original spin on it so you stand out. Write about something specific that made you laugh, or something fun you tried for the first time. In other words, show - not tell.
  • Use the word "don't." Negativity tends to be mood killer when it comes to dating sites and apps. What you don't like, what you don't want, who you don't want to date... don't go there. A positive profile is much more universally attractive.

Now that you’ve got your profile dialed in, here are…
