Here are a few key tips on how to making the algorithm work for you:
- Sign on regularly – daily if you can. If you have notifications turned off you will miss communications plus logging in less frequently tells the app you’re not that engaged and bumps you lower in the search when others are looking for someone like you.
- Initiate messages and swipe liberally – if you don’t swipe or message anyone, the app can’t tell who you want to engage with and will keep matching you more broadly with people you might not actually connect with or find attractive.
- Switch it up – making changes to your profile on regular intervals every month or so means you’re going to the top of the queue regularly
