After the resounding success of the first season of Swipe Ride, Tinder is back with yet another season. For the uninitiated, the show gives exclusive dating advice to members of the dating app. With Kusha Kapila, the blogger who drives app members to their dates, and celebrity guest Pooja Bhatt, we know we’re in good hands, right? Bringing his decades of experience in the game to life, Bhatt gives us advice on love, dating and relationships in the 2020s. Whether it’s telling us what our bios should look like dating app or teaching us how to date, she says it all. In his words, “love is life and life is love”, so here are some tips to get the most out of your love life:
Be bold and put yourself out there
“Are we going to get our hearts trampled? Yeah, we’re gonna get our hearts trampled. But are we ALWAYS going to put ourselves there? YES! We’ll get to it. Love is what makes us human, and it takes courage and nerves of steel to pull it all off. So forget about that ex, spruce up your profile and get back out there to find your perfect match.
Be your authentic self
We can’t say it enough ladies – always be yourself, authentic! Just like Bhatt told the Bollywood industry to accept or reject it for what it is – you need to have that “take it or leave it” attitude for your potential matches. To continue to remind you of this gospel truth, keep in mind Dorothy Parker’s poem Miss P, Bhatt’s character, leaves us with – “if you don’t love me so much, then to hell with my love, with you”. Verified profiles are more attractive and get more likes, so it’s a clear win-win. Get verified and remember to look for a blue tick on other profiles you review yourself.
When It Comes To Your Love Life – Travel Light
Another expert dating tip from Miss P is to pack light and drop off the luggage. In this journey of life and love, it’s best to leave that ex where he belongs – in the past – and move on to a new phase of your life with a fresh mind and an open heart. So take Miss P’s advice, drop the emotional baggage of that ex from your life, and find a match that vibes with you on an app.
Consent counts both ways
She reminds us that consent is an important, non-negotiable aspect of any relationship not just for women, but for all genders across the spectrum.
Intelligence and communication are big green flags
For Miss P, good communication is a big green flag to look for in a partner. She says the only “six pack” she cares about is “the abs a man has between his ears”, aka his brain. It also highlights the ability to share comfortable silence being a green flag as well. Profile description is more important than ever, with a description in your profile you can really show your potential matches who you are and what you are looking for.
