If you haven't heard of Tinder yet, that means you're only moments away from one of your single mates waving their phone in your face.

Tinder is a new dating app that uses a simple Hot Or Not mechanic to match you up with other lovely, single girls near you, using your Facebook profile.

It'll tell you what mutual friends you have, what shared interests (likes) you have and how near you are to each other, without revealing an exact location.


The idea is simple. Press the green heart and the girl will only know you've pressed it if she has pressed it too. So there's no chance of awkward, unrequited love/lust.

Then you can message each other right away. Nice idea, right?

FHM have already had a little play around on Tinder. For research purposes, you understand. And the girls of the office have already come across some glaring, common mistakes guys are making.

Here are the DOs and DON'Ts of Tinder to help you bag the girl of your dreams.

01 DO make it clear who you are by including solo photos as well as group ones.

02 DON'T stare intensely down the camera. Because it's intense, which means you're intense, which makes girls tense.
