Dating is hard, but genius Tinder user Grace M. just hacked the whole system. The University of Kansas student decided to change up her online dating game by posting a six-point powerpoint on her Tinder profile entitled ” Why You Should Date Me By Grace M.”
Speaking to The Daily Dot, Grace explained why she decided to get creative. “I had been having some bad luck on Tinder, and my profile was pretty boring because I was taking it too seriously and didn’t want to look ‘weird,'” she said. “I never really felt confident about my profile before, so I think it stopped me from standing out.”
Inspired by a guy on a different dating app with a powerpoint profile, she decided to go for it. “I’ve always been the ‘funny person’ in my life, so I decided to just take that and run with it.”
And so far, the method has proven effective. “My favorite response is when a guy sees that we share the same sense of humor, and then we get to talking and I find out he’s actually really cool,” Grace said. “He may not have swiped right if I’d had a ‘generic’ profile, so I’m really grateful for those connections.”
“I don’t take Tinder super seriously, but I do want people to know what I’m like from the get-go so some good conversations can happen instead of the same old bad pickup lines and boring ‘how are you’s.'”
Grace told The Daily Dot that she’s “still talking” to a guy a few weeks after they connected on Tinder, so looks like the powerpoint was well worth it.
