Tinder pro, 27, reveals his tips to dating success

One of Tinder’s ‘most swiped right’ daters has shared some of his top tips on how to achieve dating app success for those hoping to find love. 

While many of us have a horror dating story or two to tell, that’s never been a problem for James Langton, 27, from Oadby, Leicestershire, who runs the Dater Help YouTube channel – and has even found himself on Tinder’s official top 30 list of ‘most swiped right.’

The 27-year-old, who participated in a Reddit Ask Me Anything, was asked by a bunch of hopeful singletons how he gets so many matches.

Keen to offer out his advice, James replied: ‘I think it’s a mixture of everything, but having photos that portray a story and a bio that’s informative with a clear ‘call to action’ (reason why someone should match and speak to me).’

The dating pro emphasised the importance of selecting photos that help to give a glimpse into your life experiences and hobbies – and urged people to make sure the bio is ‘calling out’ to potential suitors. 

During the talk, the YouTuber also explained that he purposely avoids any mention of his job or financial status on his profile – adding that this can be a real turn off to some.

JAMES’ TOP TIPS 

1. Have photos that tell a story and detailed bio with a clear ‘call to action’

2.  Avoid any mention of your job or financial status on your profile

3. Use Tinder on desktop rather than logging on through the app because it reportedly boosts your rankings

4. Ensure that all information and photos on your profile are fully finished – including additional links to social media pages

5. Activate ‘recently active’ button

James, who regularly posts dating advice on his social media channel, also advocates the use of Tinder on desktop rather than logging on through the app.

He goes on to explain the reason being is that it reportedly boosts your rankings.

According to James, it’s also important to ensure that all information and photos on your profile are fully finished.

This includes additional links to social media pages, such as Twitter and Facebook. 

Another key point he highlights is to ensure the ‘recently active’ button is activated.

It means that anyone interested knows that you’re around to speak to – making them more likely to swipe right. 

As one of Tinder’s most popular suitors, it’s no surprise James says he’s ‘pretty selective’ when it comes to what makes him swipe right. 

He told Reddit: ‘I’ll only match with someone if they meet the criteria of ‘Would I be happy to be sat opposite this person in a bar?’ If the answer is yes, I’ll right swipe!’

Speaking to Leceister Mercury at the time, he said: ‘I got an email from Cosmo or Tinder telling me, and I was just like no way, I was really shocked and I thought this cannot be real,’ James said.

‘I was really surprised, I was almost looking in the mirror and thinking ‘me, really?’.

‘When I initially told my parents they just laughed and didn’t know if it was true. We all found it quite funny really.’
