What Makes Girls Swipe Right On Dating Apps, As Told By 10 Girls


Picture this: It's been a long day, but at last it's time to relax. So you pull out your phone, fire up Tinder, and get to work. Left, right, left, right — your finger is a blur of romantic potential and demise. Gut instinct and intuition guides you. But then something happens, someone comes up who requires a little more thought. You finger hovers over your screen with indecision, your head says "left the eff out of them," but then, at the last minute... twist! You swipe right!

OK, that's a little melodramatic, but seriously, what makes girls swipe right? Is it heart? Is it head? A combination of the two? As it turns out, there are lots of reasons why us gals opt to go right. Recently, a Redditor asked a similar question: "Have you ever swiped right on someone after hesitating? If so, I wanna hear about it." As usual, the Internet came through with some surprising and, well, educational answers. It’s always fascinating to see what small (or not so small) detail will tip your finger in one direction or the other. Here’s what 10 women had to say about how they decide which way to go.
