4 Awesome (And Incredibly Effective) Tinder Tips

Online dating is no longer taboo — in fact, it may be more effective than most traditional means of finding dates. (As a relatively old internet cliche goes: I’m not going to meet the girl of my dreams at the bar because she is probably at home watching Netflix, same as me!)

Whether you are a serial series binger or a star socialite, however, dating apps such as Tinder can be extremely effective…as long as you are using them wisely. Here are a few tips that can help make your Tinder profile more successful.

  • Be the Center of Attention In Your Bio Photo. So many people make the mistake of including a friend in their bio picture (which is just confusing) or of uploading a boring bio picture (which is just…well, boring.) Choose a picture that shows you and only you — and make sure that it is not just a stereotypical mugshot. A picture where you are being silly, where you are doing something you love, etc. are all better options that will help set you apart from the competition.
  • Edit Your Profile Bio Ruthlessly. Make it concise and original. Period.
  • Get the First Line Right. Dirty jokes, overused pickup lines, and hey, what’s up are all big nos. (Unless you want to creep people out, make them roll their eyes, or bore them to death, respectively, in which case, go for it.) An opening line that is interesting, personalized, and shows off your own personality is ideal. Subtle compliments are always a plus.
  • Move the Convo Away from Tinder. Getting Facebook pages, Whatsapp numbers, or even just making a good old fashioned telephone call are all easy ways of upping the intimacy in a real yet unintimidating fashion.

The Best Way to Appear Interesting?

Being the most qualified employee isn’t always the determining factor when it comes to getting that big promotion — sometimes, it all comes down to who the boss enjoys hanging out with.

Getting the girl isn’t always about looks, either — your ability to keep an intriguing conversation going can be just as important as your six pack.

When those around you perceive you as an interesting person, you are bound to go places in life. And the key to appearing interesting? BE interesting! Here are a few simple tips that can help you become the most interesting guy in the room.

  • Learn. Read everything you can get your hands on. Watch documentaries. Browse interesting websites and glean knowledge as you go. Stay up to date on important events — even those occurring outside your own country. The more you know about the world, the easier it will be to contribute to conversations in a unique and meaningful way.
  • Seek Life Experiences. Living your own life to the fullest will give you countless stories to share. Travel is a frequently-cited example of this, but it is not the only way of gaining life experiences. There are many interesting people, places, events, and ideas to explore within your own hometown — it is just a matter of seeking them out!
  • Find Hobbies. Developing a skill is a great path to personal growth — and people who are passionate about something tend to be inherently more intriguing. It doesn’t matter whether you like sports and fitness or researching ancient history: pursue the things you love with energy and enthusiasm and good things are bound to happen.
  • Be interested. Last but not least, being an interesting person depends upon your ability to connect with others, as well. A good conversation goes two ways — and simply mastering the art of active listening will help you achieve more social success.

Poker and Good Looks

We are all born with a few unique and unchanging physical qualities. (Your height, your facial structure, and your natural hair color are a few good examples of how genetics affect your looks.) And over the course of your life, you may acquire a few more relatively unchangeable features — you may earn a scar or lose your hair, for example.

These are just simple facts of life — a reality that we must all deal with. Unfortunately, many guys look at their unchangeable features and come to the conclusion that they have no control whatsoever over their attractiveness. And this is absolutely absurd.

In poker, your odds of a favorable outcome increase greatly if you are dealt a royal flush. And being dealt a 10 and a 2 of different suits can be pretty frustrating. Regardless, smart players can often times walk away with winnings even when they aren’t dealt amazing hands. And a bad player can easily manage to botch a great hand — or at least fail to take advantage of its full potential.

The analogy should be pretty clear. We are all dealt hands (well, entire bodies, actually) that we cannot choose for ourselves. But what really matters is how we manage our metaphorical poker hand. An average-looking guy can easily be the most attractive person in the room if he plays his hand right. And many guys who have the potential to look like movie stars end up folding in the first round. But what does playing your hand right look like?

•Find a hairstyle (and a facial hairstyle) that compliments your natural looks.

•Take good care of your teeth and oral health.

•Dress well, and choose colors and styles that bring out your best.

•Take good care of your skin by getting your vitamins, wearing sunscreen, staying hydrated, and using a moisturizer if necessary.

•Practice meticulous hygiene.

Stay in tip-top physical shape.

•Maintain good posture.

•Remember that your attitude and your personality play an enormous role in shaping people´s perception of you.

6 Interesting Questions to Ask Your Next Date

Nothing ruins a good date faster than a stalled conversation. But asking the same old boring questions can be worse than saying nothing at all! Here are six open-ended questions that are sure to spark a conversation and create opportunities to laugh, to share, and flirt.

  1. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? This question is safe and unintimidating, but still opens up lots of avenues to discuss each other’s dreams for the future.
  2. What is one fact about you that I would never guess? Answers to this question can run the gamut from funny to sexy to genuinely surprising — but they are almost always fun.
  3. What is your dream job? Asking what she currently does is the standard route — but it is also boring. Who goes on a date just to talk about work? This alternative is much more interesting and insightful.
  4. How do you like to get active? If you are reading this Male Max blog there is a good chance that fitness and physical activities are important to you. If they are important to your date as well, then you already have at least one mutual interest to explore.
  5. What has been the best year of your life so far? An invitation to talk about past experiences, relationships, friendships, and more, this question can lead to many potential conversation topics that will all reveal something important about who she is, where she comes from, and what she values.
  6. What is your favorite book/movie/TV show/play/etc. The art that we enjoy reflects a lot about who we are — so starting a conversation about this can be a great way of learning more about each other.
