The beauty of Tinder Reddit (r/tinder) is tons of people can anonymously share their online dating woes and triumphs.

The downside is that there’s so much well-meaning advice on r/Tinder, it’s hard to know what are actual ProLifeTips and what’s “nice guy” bs.

How does a casual r/Tinder lurker parse all these opinions and actually glean some useful info?

We’ve put together some of the best dating advice on Tinder Reddit to guide you on your quest for Tinder success.

Tinder Reddit Tip #1: “Put your damn shirt back on.”

Truth bomb.

Just because you want to immediately see a woman topless doesn’t mean she feels the same way.

In fact, even if you’ve got a fine bod, most women will tend to think you’re compensating for something else (brains, usually) if you’re half naked in your dating pics.

Put even more aptly by u/appogiatura, “Shirtless bathroom selfies are tacky.”

Tinder Reddit Tip #2: “Literacy is super hot.”

“Do not initially contact me with: ‘hey,’ ‘what’s up,’ or ‘how r u.’ I don’t care if you’re the hottest, smartest, most successful man, I will not reply to a message that took the least amount of humanly effort possible.” –u/waverunnr

The bar is not high.

Even the smallest amount of creativity and effort can make a huge difference in getting responses to your Tinder openers.

Still stumped? Here are some of the best cures for Tinder writer’s block.

Tinder Reddit Tip #3: “Don’t listen to that OKCupid article, smile more.”


We couldn’t agree more. In fact, we did a study that showed OKCupid’s premise resulted in some of the cringiest & grumpiest looking selfies attempting to replicate smoldering straight-faced models.

The easiest way for average guys to look max attractive and appealing to women is simply flashing your pearly whites.

Tinder Reddit Tip #4: “Your opening photo has to be a good one.”

Your photos (especially the first one) make a huge difference in the way matches “hear” your messages.

In fact, you could say the same thing to the same person — just with a different main profile pic — and get a completely different reaction.

To choose your best Tinder pics, test yours on Photofeeler to see how they’re coming across to women or men in your age range.

It’s so eye-opening to learn how you’re perceived from your pics. Choosing Tinder pics this way has been known to increase match rates (and match quality) by a ton.
