Tinder Profile Examples That Work [& Why Women Love Them!]

Describing yourself in an attractive way in 500 characters or less isn’t a walk in the park, so a lot of guys don’t even bother trying to write something good.

But that’s a mistake. Unless you’ve got looks on par with Chris Hemsworth, a weak bio is likely turning off all those attractive women you want to meet:

See the difference?

If she’s on the fence about your photos, odds are good your Tinder bio will be the deciding factor. Plus, she’ll definitely get around to checking it out before you’ve exchanged more than a couple back-and-forth messages.

Tinder Profile Example #1: Take It Over The Top

Over The Top Tinder profile example

On Tinder, we've found exaggerated humor combined with a cocky/funny attitude plays much better than it does on a dating site like This style allows you to get creative and have a bit of fun with it.

While absurd and obviously not true, this bio is memorable and intriguing - especially if your photos aren’t that strong. (And if they aren’t, you need to read these tips for choosing online dating photos that get more dates).

tinder humor that doesn't work

But remember, humor is a subjective thing. Just because you and your bros think it’s funny, doesn’t she will.

You want right swipes, so make sure whatever you write makes you sound like a great catch.

Profile Tip: In our experience, over-the-top/cocky humor tends to work best for guys looking to date women in their 20s. If that’s not you, don’t worry - there are 3 different styles of Tinder profile examples coming right up!

Tinder Profile Example #2: Short & Sweet

You already saw one great Tinder profile example at the beginning of this article that’s short and sweet, and here’s another one:

This style of profile captures her attention with just a few words - and leaves her wanting more. Emoji were made for short dating profiles, as they’re visually interesting and convey a more complex idea at a glance.

The words “I like to travel, surf, eat sushi, and go mountain biking” are less compelling than the same concept expressed in emoji form.

The key to success here is highlighting a few of your most attractive traits.

If you keep it short and she doesn’t learn anything of substance about you, you’re just shooting yourself in the foot.

Profile Tip: If you’re easy on the eyes and have strong, visually interesting photos, Short & Sweet is likely the perfect Tinder bio style for you. You don’t need to go over-the-top with your bio when you’ve got it going on in your photos.

Tinder Profile Example #3: Down To Earth

This profile example shows how to highlight all your best “husband material” traits in a creative, attention-grabbing way.

If she’s shopping for The One, you can bet she’s interested in knowing about your career and hobbies. In fact, 73% of women listed “occupation/intelligence” as one of the most desired traits they’re looking for in men on Tinder.

Make sure you’re only highlighting attractive traits, though.

tinder profile example with flaws

Negativity isn’t hot, and if you call attention to a perceived flaw you think you have in a short dating profile, her first impression heads south quickly.

Profile Tip: If you’re in your mid-30s and looking for a relationship on the more serious end of the spectrum, this is your go-to style.

We've found this approach also works for younger guys looking for something long-term. This style attracts the marriage-minded set, and yes - those women are definitely on Tinder.

Tinder Profile Example #4 -Adventure Story

When you focus on the most exciting aspects of your life, you leave her craving more details. The best Tinder bios evoke an emotional response in her, and this style does that in spades.

But it’s crucial that this “Adventure Story” profile style works with your pictures. It’s called congruence, and if you don’t have it, she’ll notice.

Tinder selfie fail

For example, if your profile talks all about your epic international adventures, but your photos are all bathroom selfies, she’s going to feel like something about you is off. You just torpedoed your odds of getting her number, much less scoring a date.

Profile Tip: Assuming your photos can back it up, this is the one style that potentially could work for any guy. Tales of adventure are universally appealing - what woman doesn’t get excited over a vividly described story packed with intrigue, travel, and a dash of danger?
