Most Overused Phrases, Bios (Dating Profile Cliches): Hinge Bingo, Bumble Bingo, Tinder. Boring & Stereotypical Dating Profiles, Tropes, Examples

Writing a bio for Tinder, answering questions on Coffee Meets Bagel or thinking of creative answers to prompts on Hinge and Bumble can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. Being yourself, being insightful and being unique will help you stand out from others and get more likes and matches.

Most people do not like to talk about themselves, and it shows on dating apps. Whether it is listing a bunch of adjectives like sweet, funny, thoughtful or using nouns like foodie, entrepreneur, partner in crime, traveler, wanderlust, engineer – these words and phrases reveal little to nothing about people. These annoying dating profiles can easily offset otherwise great photos and resume.

Pro-tip: See which Hinge prompts get the most likes, and responses.
