Dating advice from Tinder's most-matched UK users
The dating app has spoken, and so have its most eligible singles
The UK's most eligible digital singles have been revealed this week as Cosmopolitan has published a piece about Tinder's 30 most successful and swiped-right users in the UK and Ireland.
The list is made up of a number of good-looking and tech-savvy singles who dissect their online-dating game bit-by-bit, showcasing what is it that deems them worthy of a top spot.
The top six also posed for a sultry black-and-white photoshoot that your 16-year-old self would be proud of.
Mostly quoting simplicity and particular aesthetics as their reasons for fancying someone upon first glance, the top 30 delve into exactly what makes them reciprocate their right swipes.
Upon being asked what characteristics make him take notice of someone, 23-year-old Bristol student Vincent explains exactly what tickles his fancy.
"I quite like it when people have done cool stuff. Anything that’s not just five selfies."
This apparently is a common theme, as 34-year-old Pablo says something quite similar.
"Someone who looks natural and whose photos were taken by others."

What’s your Tinder bio? My name and my location.
Opening line? "Hello :)" It’s worked out so far.

What makes you swipe right? Nice hair, that’s always a bonus.
What makes you swipe left? If they come across as judgemental in their bio.
