My dating profile
For most people, a few featured photos are enough to make a decision."I would rather you just put your best foot forward," Golden told me.An improved Tinder profile doesn't mean catering to what you think potential matches want to see; it's all about portraying your best self.You want to express your personality in a way that helps other people to recognize how amazing you are."I want the guy to start and I want to give him some data.Two truths and a lie is an easy way to do that."Next up were my preferences.For my first photo, she chose one of me posing on a garden bench, smiling in a grey sweater and jeans."My goal when you’re talking to someone on Tinder is for them to swipe right on you," she said.
"Some of your pictures convey how adorable you are and work for you," she said. She cut my six previous selections down to five, keeping two and swapping out three.
Golden said that this approach makes it really easy for even the laziest guy to send me a message guessing which one is the lie.
"In the profile description, I want someone to have something to talk to you about," she said.
If you're interested in some personalized feedback, you can always work with Golden yourself.
She's basically a fairy godmother for online dating.
