It's relatively easy to set up a profile on Tinder or your dating app of choice , but it's not quite as simple to attract the matches you're looking for. Along with choosing the right photos can we chill with the hunting pics, please?! The key to a great Tinder bio might seem counterintuitive. Even though you're obviously on the app to find a mate, you actually shouldn't use your bio to list what you are or aren't looking for, says Sarrah Rose, a certified tantric sex, love, and relationship coach.

How to Write a Bio for a Dating Site: 5 Steps (with Pictures)
According to Psychology Today , we like funny people because they demonstrate advanced social skills and intelligence. Both things many of us find attractive in a mate. Self-deprecating humor is also a sign of lack of ego and self-confidence which are both also very attractive to many of us.

Or literally any mention of sarcasm at all, to be honest. People love to claim to be sarcastic because they think it makes them sound smart and a little edgy.
