Check out these tips that can help improve your dating app profile and guide you in confidently making the first move.

Choosing a good photo is everything.

Photos are a great way to express yourself and share what you're interested in. And though it's nice to include some cute group pics with your barkada, ultimately, your profile photos should mostly be just you! The last thing you'd want is for your potential matches to get confused as to whose profile they're actually looking at. According to a study by Bumble, Filipinos who add three to six photos to their profile receive 51 percent more matches!

Get Verified

Make the online dating community a much safer space to be in and get that blue shield icon. The best part? You can get it done in just four easy steps! First, go to the "Edit Profile" section. Then, tap "Verify Your Account." Take a selfie copying a randomly selected pose by Bumble, and send it to their photo moderation team using the simple step-by-step verification process outlined in the app. Once that's done and everything is good on the receiving end, you should get verified in no time!

Wear your Badges proud.

With the Badges feature, you can let your potential matches know your education, religion, zodiac sign, and more. You can choose up to five badges from over 150 interests that range across various categories including sports, hobbies, and preferred choice of activities. There's even a badge for social causes and advocacies! Through this, you get to find common ground with other people and see the things they enjoy and care about.

Share your love for music.

Don't you just love it when you meet people who have the same taste in music as you do? Another cool feature you can try is to link your Spotify account! This will give your potential matches an idea on what kind of music you like listening to. Based on recent stats, Filipinos who connect their Spotify to their profile experience 46 percent more matches than those who don't. Plus, imagine having your match create a playlist for you based on your fave songs and artists. Nakakakilig naman!

Ask questions.

Making the first move is always the hardest, and we totally get it. Figuring out how to start the convo and knowing what to actually say is easier said than done. Luckily, the Question Game feature can do the thinking for you! Basically, it'll give you prompts and all you have to do is choose a question you'd like your match to answer. If you don't find one that interests you, you have the freedom to come up with your own. Heads up, though: You and your match must both answer the question before your answers are revealed.

Take second chances.

Have you ever experienced matching with someone but unfortunately, it expired? It's the worst feeling, I know. But don't worry, it's not the end of the world just yet! With Bumble Premium, you can use the "Rematch" feature and reconnect with that former match even after the expiry time limit.

Be yourself.

This is pretty much a given, but in case you needed to hear it again, one of the most important things to remember when it comes to online dating is that you should always be your most authentic self. Being kind and being your own true self are very attractive, and you'll be amazed at how it can actually lead you to the right people. :)
