This Is The Secret To Turning Those Tinder Matches Into Actual Dates

One of the most frustrating things about Tinder is getting loads (ok, some) matches and then, nothing.

For every 50 matches, you could be lucky to get one message and who likes those odds?

Well, an expert has now claimed that one simple trick could increase your chances of turning that match into an actual date.

Dr Jess Carbino, who works as an in-house sociologist for Tinder, said that adding a question to your bio makes it easier for people to start a conversation... meaning any potential suitors are more likely to hit that message button.

She told Business Insider that adding more personality is the key to success on the dating app and this little nudge could make a huge difference.

"A lot of individuals need to have fodder to make conversation. It's very difficult for people sometimes to put themselves forward and try to make that first move."

Previous research revealed that women swipe right for fewer people but send more messages, while men swipe right for more women but sent less messages.

So maybe there's something to Dr Carbino's advice?
