Keep it simple on Tinder
'If your profile shot is a photo with friends, make sure to include at least two photos of you on your own too, so that you’re easily identifiable. You have five photos, so there’s plenty of room to show off your personality and highlight your interests.'
Pimp up your profile'Give as much information as you can in your bio. If you’re passionate about work, add in your job title. If you have a good social media presence, add your Instagram and Twitter handles – it’s your chance to really define who you are.'
Don't judge a book by its cover'One of my friends got engaged last week to a guy she matched with on Tinder, but she only swiped him because his T-shirt featured her favourite band. She wasn’t that attracted to him at first, but she realised they had something in common so gave him a chance – now they’re getting married!'
Don't just stick to dinner and a movie'Pick your favourite dive bar or coffee house for your first meeting. If you’re still not sure, instigate a meeting with a group of friends – it’s just about being social in any capacity. I go hiking here in LA and meet a lot of people on their first Tinder date, so you can be adventurous and outdoorsy, too.'
Play it cool'Don’t be surprised to see a celebrity like one of the
Made In Chelsea gang or Hollywood star Chris Pine on Tinder. It gives them the opportunity to just be a normal person. The beauty of the app is that no one can bombard you or actually get to you unless you like them too. Celebrities travel so much, so they like meeting people in their area.'
Use Tinder to widen your circle
'The app is all about connecting people who have mutual friends, so you may end up swiping on someone you recognise from a party but felt awkward friending them on Facebook or asking your friend for their number.'
Be proactive'Don’t be afraid to make the first move. If you’re a match, it’s because the guy has also shown he’s interested in you. There’s no shame in saying hello first.'
