Updated: Jun 22, 2020

Hey! My name is James Langton, I was on the official Tinder most ‘Right-Swiped list, as featured in all major UK media. I am the founder of Dater Help, I offer Dating-App Profile Enhancement and Dating-App Coaching via Zoom. In short, I can make your profile way better and tell you how to interact with matches, everything from sending the first message to organizing a date.  

Your current Bumble profile - what's wrong with it

I’ve read so much stuff online about the 'best ways to get more matches on Bumble' and have to say 95% of the stuff just isn’t correct. 

Crafting the perfect dating app profile is a sweet mixture of understanding digital marketing, understanding people, and having a good visual eye.

If you’re reading this blog post, it probably means you’re not getting as many matches as you’d like. There multiple factors of why this could be, but the quickest and easiest way is to improve your profile. 

This blog post contains no tricks, hacks, or anything unethical. Just a pure and simple way of improving your Bumble profile to gain more matches. 

Creating the perfect Bumble profile 

Here’s a list of the actionable things you can do to improve your profile right now. Before I go any further, I should probably state that you should read what I’ve written above if you haven't already. 

Like you, whenever I read a blog, I just want to get to the bullet-pointed list that offers me advice, but seriously, go back to the top and read it all! It contains some pretty crucial info… 

Your photos 

I’ve put this part first because it’s the main reason why people are swiping left on you, or your profile is so low down on the rankings that people aren’t even seeing your profile at all. 

Your photos are without a doubt the most important aspect of a dating app, not just Bumble. Before anyone has a chance to see how awesome your bio is or gets a chance to sit opposite you in an overpriced coffee shop in a part of town you can’t even afford the rent in. Don’t fall at the first hurdle! Here’s what you should and shouldn't do... 


. Pick the right photos. Is your shirt untidy? Is one eye closed? Is your hair messy? Look at the photo before you upload it and ask yourself “does this photo portray me in the way I’d want to be viewed by someone?
