If you've ever had the (mis)fortunate experience of being on Tinder, you'll know that the novelty of swiping left and right based on whether you think you'd be punching above your weight or not does wear off pretty fast. I mean, this 'game' will be a night out favourite that rivals Ring of Fire amongst your coupled up friends who got it on far before the rest of us had to resort to an app. But when you're watching the Strictly Come Dancing results show by yourself on a Sunday eve and increasing your radius as you've swiped through everyone in your area, it can be a little disheartening. 

Once you've been doing your single thing for a while, you'll start to see the same things cropping up, which is why I thought I'd create a bingo checklist to play during your Sunday swiping session. 

1. The gap yah photo - for an extra point, a photo with a sedated lion or elephant having a bath.

2. Topless gym shot, most likely in a Puregym with those telltale turquoise lockers in the changing room.

3. Where's Wally? A succession of group shots where you have to pick out the common denominator(usually the shortest guy).

4. Lads holiday, most likely a topless shot by the pool where those abs are only there due to hangover dehydration.

5. The dog shot. It probably belongs to his mum but y'know, who can resist a guy with a puppy?

6. The mum shot. Even harder to resist is a photo of a guy with his arm round his mum (also counts when it's his nan)

7. The wedding shot. At first glance, it looks like a newly married couple looking for a threesome but in reality, it's when he stepped up to be an usher at his sister's wedding.

8. The Uber rating in bio thing. He thinks it makes him look cool and individual, little does he know that at least 70% of guys include this.

9. Link to Snapchat, AKA wants nudes.

10. Link to Instagram, AKA wants followers.

11. A photo from either a wedding, the races or a Christmas party (any opportunity to suit up and go from a 6 to an 8 out of 10).

12. Height in bio but only if he's over 6ft, obviously)

So, that's my Tinder checklist, what would you add? Would you like to take over my Tinder and find me the one whilst on a night out? Let me know in the comments.

  1. This tickled me, good to know I’m not the only one bored to death by all of this! Not to blame it on the lads though, ladies’ profiles are just as predictable XD
