Dating on the dating apps in Kenya should come with a manual. Why isn’t anyone swiping right for me? is this person even real? Don’t they have a boy/girl friend!
When it comes to dating apps the list of mistakes made are endless resulting in no swipes, no likes and a sense of insecurity. Remember always know what you’ve come to do/get on the app. Is it a hook up? meet up? friendship? marriage, babies and house? Once you know, you’re ready.
Tips to a successful dating profile:
- Profile photos matter! 1 photo, cartoons, cars, T.V characters and memes are holding you a back. Your favorite photos will have you feeling confident and your best photos will help you get the best partners.
- Who is 114 on Tinder? Your real age helps other people looking for a similar age, an age group you like and people find you easier.
- Bios are such a brilliant ways to say hello. Be witty not rude, keep it straightforward and leave them laughing or wanting more.
- Attach your socials. Dating apps allow you to connect Spotify and Instagram. That’s a great way to bond through music and network outside of the app.
- Verify your profile! This isn’t like Instagram and Twitter where you can buy verification. Some dating apps will help you verify your account to stop catfishing.
- Miles and Kilometers. How far are you willing to go to find someone? Open the distance as much as possible. The more limited you are, the more limits you’ll get.
- Say something! Somebody has to start the conversation, you both know you’re interested. Taking control of the conversation gives you that advantage to steer the conversation.
- For those in the LGBTQ community living in less tolerant countries, there are safety tips the apps will provide you in order to avoid cat fishing and to stay cautious.
