As you're swiping through Tinder, you might have noticed that a disproportionate number of women have no bios - and often few or straight out poor photos. Why? Today we're going to both talk through why - and what you can do to actively get beyond that. Also, at the end of the article I've included a link for our free Online dating mini-course that should help get you started on getting more results.
Q&A: Why don't girls on Tinder have Bios?
I want to both answer your question, and tell you exactly how to message a girl when she has a blank profile.
First, what do women have blank profiles?
Yes, I might sound like a broken record here, as others have already said the same thing: it’s just not necessary for a woman to write a bio on Tinder.
The reality is, having a bio or not wont affect the number (or quality) of messages she will receive. Most guys don’t read a bio.
While this might seem like a negative, it’s actually a positive. There is a reason that the minority of men on Tinder get the majority of results. And, like me, you’re going to be in that pool now (assuming you weren’t already.)
So, how can we effectively message a girl with no bio?
If we put ourselves in the shoes of women, a common frustration of online dating is “no one actually reads my bio,” “everyone just wants to hook up,” “all these men are desperate.”
It’s impossible not to think this. Women receive a flood of impressional, boring messages from men.
The key to success then is customization. While Tinder is a numbers game, you can greatly stack the odds in your favor by putting in just a few minutes work of customization. From Roulette to Poker.
The customization doesn’t have to be amazing. She doesn’t expect it to be - especially if she isn’t putting in a bio to make your life easier.
Instead, look at her images. Choose something from it that “jumps out at you.” Reference that thing in her first message - no matter how small or seemingly insignificant.
If you can take that “thing” and also relate it to you, or manage to find a (very) short story, instance of wit, or joke to incorporate it in - that’s all the more power in your hands.
