The first question on the minds of plenty of guys is, "Does this thing even work!?" The answer is "It certainly can!", but that depends on a few key components on your end, including your profile, swiping strategy and messaging technique, as well as first clarifying what you even mean by "work". Let's take a closer look at Tinder's purpose before we move on to some tips for getting matches:
There is widespread confusion among men about what Tinder is even for. Is it for serious dating, or just for casual hook ups? The short answer is both: women use Tinder for a variety of reasons, varying from simply making friends (yes, seriously, and there's even a whole new "Swipe with Friends" section to cater to these types, in which you can match with groups of friends nearby) to casual hook ups to dating with the intention of finding The One. While Tinder started life as a hookup app , it's no longer appropriate to assume that everyone who is using Tinder is looking for casual sex.
You can use Tinder for any of the above reasons too, but it pays to be clear with yourself and everyone else exactly what you're looking for. If you're not looking anything more than a casual hook up, you should make that clear, ideally in your bio ("not looking for anything serious," "seeking hook ups") or at the very least once you start chatting to your matches (and more on that below). If you're looking to date seriously, that should also be immediately evident to anyone interacting with you.
