13 Great Dating Profile Bios You Can Use On Any App

The online dating world is a competitive market these days. A recent 2021 study found there are around 30.4 million online dating users in the US alone, so finding the ‘one’ has become that much more of a challenge.

One of the most important things you can do is make sure your profile is eye-catching enough to capture the attention of those swiping. To do this you not only need a fantastic profile picture but a wonderfully compelling bio. When it comes to writing your bio, there are several different ways you can achieve this.

The best way to go about creating an interesting bio is by making sure you are using your bio to highlight who you are and what you are about. Talking with Men’s Health, certified tantric sex, love, and relationship coach Sarrah Rose explained, “If you’re narrow-minded about what type of [person] you’ll date, you may miss out on someone really magical that is just outside of the box you created.”

Don’t worry about listing the qualities you don’t want in a woman, instead, focus on your interests. Talk about what you do for a living, what your hobbies are—whatever “makes you interesting and stand out from the rest,” Rose says. This way people who come across your bio can understand more about you and will be more likely to swipe right if they think you are into the same things.

But don’t be afraid to also add what you are looking for. Instead of being negative and saying ‘no flings,’ write that you are looking for a long-term relationship. A study conducted by Tinder found that 80% of users are on the app to find their life partner, so putting that on your bio isn’t a bad thing.

You can also go in the total opposite direction and just have fun with your bio and write something funny or suggestive. These types of bios are probably not going to help you find the love of your life, but they will give potential matches a chuckle. And you never know, maybe that one-liner you use from your favorite movie or suggestive joke will actually work? Stranger things have happened.

Now there are many different ways you can go about crafting your bio and to help you out we have come up with some dating bio-inspiration below. Just remember to have fun with.

1. Three Things

This is a great way to share some of your values without listing all the things you don’t like or creating a negative profile. You can also reveal important details about yourself in a manner that isn’t too shocking, such as the fact you have a kid or have been married.

This is another funny dating profile bio that you can use to highlight some of your interests while having a laugh. We would all act very differently if the zombie apocalypse actually happened, so this is your chance to let people know how you would react, be it with a serious tone or played for laughs.


  • I’d gather up all the supplies I can carry, visit the marina, steal a luxury yacht, and spend the next six months living out at sea. Then when things have died down I would return to shore and help rebuild civilization.

  • Take car. Go to Mum’s. Kill Phil. Grab Liz, go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over.

6. Suggestive

It is always good to state your intentions, so if you are only looking for a bit of fun, let everyone viewing your profile know the deal.

There are plenty of good lines you can use to let everyone know you are single and ready to mingle.


  • Not picky about how tall you are, because everyone is the same height in bed.
  • I’m on Tinder to make friends the same way I’m on Pornhub to watch the plumber fix the sink.

While shorter is generally better, if you are going to tell your life story in 500 words, make sure you address all the major points. Talk about your employment, where you live, what you like doing, and what you are looking for. People don’t want to read your actual life story, just a nice blurb that gives them a good overview of who you are as a person.


  • By day I am a financial advisor, at night I am a deer drinking music fan who loves attending live music events. Up for all and any adventures and wants someone to complement my life, not complicate it. Hit me up if you feel the same.
