Spring cleaning should not be limited to our homes. With summer just around the corner, we should all take time to revamp our dating profiles. That鈥檚 why we asked Canada鈥檚 fastest growing dating app Hinge for some tips on how to land a date, as everyone gets back out there for the summer.

  1. Show us who you are

When selecting photos, choose pictures that feature a clear view of your face. Ditch the ones with filters or sunglasses, because these make it harder for anyone to see what you look like. Start with an unobstructed headshot, and include photos of yourself doing things you love.

  1. Avoid one-word answers

When creating your profile, avoid one-word answers that don’t reveal much about you. Show someone that you鈥檙e invested in finding a relationship, by putting effort into your responses.

  1. Be specific

The more specific and open you are, the easier it is for a match to start a conversation with you. This also helps show the real you. You may want to consider getting new prescription glasses which can surely add to your overall impact.

  1. Standout by sending comments

Sending a comment with your like helps you stand out, and shows you鈥檙e invested in getting to know the other person. 71% of users say daters on Hinge have more success starting conversations when initiating interest with a comment, rather than a like, so this little extra effort goes a long way!

  1. Keep the conversation fresh

Don鈥檛 be afraid to ask follow-up questions or switch to a new topic. To get past the small talk, you can ask questions such as 鈥淲hat鈥檚 something that makes you lose track of time?鈥 or 鈥淲hat鈥檚 your go-to, pump-up song?鈥 Research shows asking personal and thoughtful questions is the best way to get to know someone.

  1. Take it to the next level

Keep momentum going by transitioning from messaging on the app to texting. Don鈥檛 be afraid to ask for a video date too. It鈥檚 the new coffee date — a low-pressure vibe check to assess your chemistry.
