What Makes Guys Swipe Right On Dating Apps, As Told By 11 Guys


Am I the only one that finds filling out dating profiles super stressful? On one hand, I want to be like, "I am amazing you should totally date me." But on the other hand, I don’t want to come off as narcissistic or like I'm trying too hard to sell myself. Ugh, who needs this kind of frustration? Wouldn't it be nice to have some guidance on how to craft the best bio? For example, it might be helpful to know what makes guys swipe right in the first place.

Good thing Reddit exists, then. A Redditor recently asked guys, "If you've ever hesitated before swiping right on someone, what was the thing that tipped it for you?" As usual, the men of Reddit came through. Some joked, but most answered honestly, and their responses were illuminating. I was actually pretty surprised to learn what the deciding factor is for most of them when they are on the fence about which way to swipe. It goes against the typical guy stereotype I am ashamed to say I was expecting. Spoiler alert: Yes, you really do have take the time to write a good bio after all. Sigh. Oh well. Check out what these forthcoming fellas had to say below.

To be honest, I totally would swipe right on this guy.

I don't know about you but I was pretty surprised to see how few dudes mentioned your photos. So, I guess the lesson is it’s all about the bio, baby.
