Think of Tinder bios as elevator speeches. Beyond your photos, they are your one shot at telling potential suitors what you’re all about. Usually, Tinder bios reveal little more than your nationality, preference in fast food chains, and degree of proficiency in Drake lyrics. But Tinder bios can also be an opportunity to showcase your values and priorities in 500 characters or less. So, what should I put in my Tinder bio if I want to say something… more?
What if I want to highlight my drive and ambition, or my kind heart and intellect? How do I show that I’m obsessed with travelling, or eating, or both?And — perhaps most importantly — how do I let my could-be-matches know that I’m more of an Audrey than a Marilyn, but more of a Carrie than a Samantha?
Here are 25 fun and inspiring quotes to put in your Tinder bio if you’re looking to spotlight more than your taste in music or emojis — from world leaders, literary icons, comedians, and everyone’s favorite (fictional) dating writer. And no, “It’s Going Down, I’m Yelling Tinder” did not make the list.
