To ensure the singletons are all set for Dating Sunday, Tinder is sharing its top 3 tips:
●3/5/11: Share at least 3 Passions / Interests (make sure they are updated to what you are currently vibin’ to) – add at least 5 pictures/videos – write at least 11 words in your bio.
●Be online at prime time – just as midnight on NYE is the time to be on the middle of the dancefloor, watching the fireworks, or snogging your crush, 7-10 pm is the slot on Dating Sunday to swipe on what makes you vibe on the app. So, cancel all your other plans, as Tinder is the only place you should be at prime time.
●Digital-first, IRL second – Before meeting in IRL, why not video chat first. Take a moment to get to know your match before you plunge into that New Year in-person date.
