What’s up, guys. I’ve banged over 100 girls from Tinder, split-tested dozens of profiles, bios, and openers, and I want to teach you everything I’ve learned from the past 2-3 years of heavy Tindering.
2 Biggest Lessons:
- LMS Reigns Supreme on Tinder
- Screen HARD to Avoid Wasting Time
The biggest lessons I learned were that, first of all, LMS (Looks, Money and Status) reign supreme on Tinder. I know everyone already knows that, but I still see guys posting dumb shit on Tinder that has no point.
You want to design your profile to convey those three things. Anything that shows you’re handsome, physically jacked, have status, and have some money.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “B-but Jon, then I’ll only get gold diggers!”
No shit. You’re not on Tinder to get a girlfriend, you’re on Tinder to get laid. If you want a girlfriend, learn day game and go to grocery stores and malls.
If you have pre-selection, then definitely show it. This is one of the fastest ways to build not only value, but also comfort, without doing much aside from posting a picture or two up there.
Designing Your Profile
Example of pictures from my Tinder profile
You want your profile to be about 90% fuck boy, and 10% sweetheart. Here’s what I mean by this.
For example, on my profile, I have a ton of pictures of me with other girls, being jacked, doing cool/fun shit, and then I have one picture there of my Mom and I on valentine’s day.
Girls LOVE guys that are about 90% asshole and 10% sweet side, because it appeals to their hypergamy (asshole side), but also shows them that you have hope for an emotional connection (sweet side).
You can do this in different ways, and it’s up to you to figure that out.
Your first picture is the most important, obviously, so put the BEST one there that you possibly can. If you have any pictures that showcase your wealth, status, and looks in a single picture, make that your profile.
As for your bio, don’t get too complicated – keep it simple. I like to use negs and other subtle breaks in rapport to put in my bio, because they give her a chance to open you.
One that’s really simple I’ll use is: “Hmu if you’re a bad bitch.”
Example of a number close on Tinder
As for swiping, I don’t have much to say. Get Tinder Gold for the unlimited swipes, and just swipe through everyone. This will do two things.
First, you have an abundance mindset. If you only have like 10 matches, even if they’re all really hot, you subconsciously view them as more important.
If you have 150 matches though, even if only 10-20 are SMOKING hot, the other 75 are probably half decent, and this will subconsciously put you into an abundance mindset.
You won’t freak out over one hot girl not responding, if you’ve already got 150 matches there.
Second, swiping fast on everyone saves time. Don’t screen upfront, because you don’t even know if you’ll match with them yet. Swipe right on everyone, get all the matches you can, and THEN screen the ones who already matched with you. This will save time and energy.
As for opening, you want to screen HARD. Be flirtatious right off the bat. You’ll get less responses, but the ones who do respond, are at least 51% interested in you sexually, and not just wasting your time.
I’ve split tested this with literally dozens of openers, and I’ve found that a simple observational opener works the best. One that I like to use is: “You look like trouble.”
Conversation to Number Close
Another conversation to number close example
There’s a bunch of examples of my number closes in the article I wrote (check it out here), but the basic way that I get a girl’s number is I’ll pose a question, or a curiosity, and then use getting her number as an excuse to solve it.
For example, a typical conversation might go like this:
Me: “You look like trouble”
Her: “Haha, maybe I am”
Me: “The only question I have, is are you the good kind… or the bad?”
Her: “Not telling”
Me: “Well I guess there’s only one way to find out then…”
Her: “What’s that?”
Me: “You give me your number”
Its pretty simple once you get the gist of it, and you can use this concept for anything. If she’s a tequila or a beer girl, if she’s a good girl or a bad girl, if she’s X, Y, or Z.
Just pose a question, and then in order to find out the answer, you need her number.
Number to F*ck
I typically prefer to get a girl’s Snapchat for a close, but number works just fine. Start by building a small amount of comfort, small talk, etc.
The reason you DON’T do this on Tinder, is because you’ll get ignored and lost in the endless sea of thirsty guys hitting her up. Once you have her number though, she’s way more likely to respond.
Build a little bit of comfort, flirt, tease, and then ask her what she’s doing tonight.
Here’s a big fucking lesson though. Attraction has an “expiration date.” In other words, if you don’t meet up with a girl on Tinder within a week, she will forget about you, and it will likely never happen.
Try to bang her that night. My go to, as stereotypical as it is, is watching a scary movie with her. If she wants to meet up in public first, that’s fine, just find something near your house to do.
For example, I used to live by this dog park, so I’d invite girls to “break in” there and see some puppies. This gives a sort of “adventurous” feeling, even though we weren’t even really breaking in (the gate was open).
Then, once we get there, I’d chat her up, and in 15-30 minutes, once she’s more comfortable with me, I’d tell her I have beer at my place and it’s just a block away. Done and done.
