How To Find A Guy In 10 Swipes

At Chappy HQ, we get a lot of questions about how to make more matches — is it your profile pictures, bio or luck!? To answer all your questions, we’ve compiled a list of tips on how to make more matches:


Fill out your bio! People are much more likely to swipe on you if you have something to say for yourself. You could be the cutest guy on earth but unless you show personality, it’s difficult to make matches.

Example Bio: I’m Chad! 👋 I have a french bulldog named Beatrice and we love long walks through Prospect Park in the morning and meeting friends at Smorgasburg for a bite to eat at lunch. On chill nights you can find me watching reruns of Queer Eye on Netflix while devouring a bag of chips and salsa.  


2. Instagram: LINK YOURS!

On Chappy, you can give your fellow swipers a quick preview of your life beyond your dating profile. We know that guys who have linked their Instagrams to their profiles get more matches. We have a hunch this is because you can get a better idea of the person you are talking to!


3. Photos: Strike A Pose!

The best performing profiles always have clear, well lit photos. Avoid those blurry selfies in dark rooms — they don’t work.

Guys want to see the real you so head outside, or to a sun drenched window, get your friends to switch your camera to portrait mode and snap some shots of you living your best life — borrowing a cute dog for the occasion won’t hurt either! (sorry in advance for your missing dog, Susie)


4. Don’t be a dick

Any abusive or discriminatory comments in your bio will be moderated and you won’t be allowed on the app. It’s quite hard to find a guy if you can’t even use Chappy so let’s treat others how you’d like to be treated.


5. Free your mind!

We always encourage people to be open minded. Spend some time looking through guys’ profiles, READ their bios. You’re much more likely to have a successful match if you swipe on guys that you have something in common with. Don’t just swipe left based on one photo, you could be missing out on a connection that’ll stand the test of time.


6. Expand your radius

There is more to life than dating guys who ONLY live in Manhattan between Chelsea and Hell’s Kitchen. If you’re not seeing many guys in your area, why not expand your radius a little? (We know subways are scary, but we believe in you). You’ll meet more people AND see new parts of town, it’s a win win tbh.
