Most people have either dabbled in the world of online dating or know a couple who met through the likes of Tinder or Bumble.
But is there a surefire way of guaranteeing you ‘match’ with your crush? The creator of Profile Polish, Lisa Hoehn, suspects that it all starts with what is written in your bio on the first page.

1. Go right for the punchline
Sure you’re given a small paragraph of space to work with but that doesn’t mean you need to share your whole life story immediately.
Keep your prospective partner wanting more by merely hinting at what is to come and don’t start things off by introducing yourself and signing off at the end like a letter.
‘It’s also worth noting that sarcasm and playful mockery can be effective if executed well,’ Ms Hoehn told MyDomaine.

2. Smile for the camera
When you’re choosing the five images you’re allowed to upload try to select ones that show off your hobbies, whether it be running, surfing, hiking, camping or painting because it will start a meaningful conversation.
It gives people the opportunity to skip past the ‘how are you?’ questioning and opt straight for something more personalised to you and your lifestyle.
And according to Tinder you’re 14 per cent more likely to get right-swiped if you’re smiling in a photo.
3. Be selective about your emojis
Using too many exclamation points or including cheesy emojis to describe yourself is a huge no-no.
You might be a naturally calm person, but the tone that excessive punctuation sets is one of a hyperactive five-year-old.

So be yourself but ensure it’s translating correctly on the app.
4. Talk about your career and hobbies early on
Some experts argue against including your job in your bio online while others suggest it’s helpful to be upfront about something as important as your career.
Ms Hoehn believes it’s only natural to want to write about it and it might actually help you find common goals.
The same goes for including your hobbies in the top paragraph – if you’re an avid gardener and your match doesn’t enjoy being outdoors than it’s going to pose issues down the track.
