Gen Z and millennial Tinder members can agree that pictures are inarguably the virtual opposite of love at first sight in real life as these are the first thing they look at in determining whether there’s enough spark to prompt a right swipe. But for Pinoy daters, Tinder is so much more than curated photos.
On this side of the world, Pinoy Gen Zs can agree that a Tinder bio is the name of the game.
For a generation that adheres faithfully to authenticity, there’s no denying that Tinder bios are as important as pictures: whether it be to check the person’s profession – because yes, career happens to be one of the deal breakers for many Gen Zs– or shares the same interest. And let us tell you this: bios among Pinoy daters on Tinder are on a whole new level!
So, we’ve rounded up 10 Pinoy Tinder bios that, according to Pinoy Gen Zs, will either crack you up, make you say “that’s me”, prompt you to shoot your shot or not!
1. Ang Babaylan – The Fortune Teller
We play no game on this list, fellas. Of course, our astrology aficionados take the top spot! Minus their dances and chants, Babaylan on Tinder tells you which signs they’re most compatible with. So, you better get yourself acquainted with tarots and zodiac signs before sliding into their inbox.
2. The Makibaka! Bio
If anything, you must know by now that being able to speak one’s mind is the new sexy. And while others may find this intimidating, you shouldn’t discount the makibaka bio so easily. Past their socio-political advocacies, kayang kaya ka nilang dalhin sa exciting part (they can bring you to the exciting part).
So, yaaaas! Saan ang rally? (Where’s the rally?) Count me in!
3. The 21st Century Magellan
This bio is filled with flags after flags of countries visited. Ang tugon (the response): #SanaAll!
THIS . IS . FLEXING!
And the only thing you can do is wonder what went wrong in your life.
4. The CV-In-Flesh
Just another bio that will make you wonder what crime you’ve committed in your past life to deserve whatever mishaps you’re facing at present. From master’s degree to owning a business and running a charity organization, it looks like they’ve got life figured out! How to be you po?
5. The not-always-active-here-hit-me-up-on-IG
Well, we cannot expect everyone to always be online on Tinder. Pinoys, after all, are busy fellas. Don’t count out this bio so easily and consider hitting them up on their IG.
6. Pabuhat sa ML
“LeT’s pLaY ML, pArE.”
“GeNsHIn iMpAcT, g?”
Tinder, after all, champions all the ways sparks can fly. So, who said playing ML can’t earn you a match on the app? Tara, let’s play ML! Bottom ang matalo! (loser will bottom).
7. Dear Charo
From a list of favorite TV shows and K-Pop idols to bullets after bullets of hobbies and likes and dislikes, this bio narrates the persona to the T, leaving you no room for question. You better read up before sliding into their inbox with questions where answers can be found on their bio.
8. Dayum! Mic drop!
“The perfect example of ROI”, the bio read.
“I can make your mama proud of you,” the bio read.
“Recommended by 9/10 moms,’’ they claimed.
If wit is the barometer of sexy, this bio sets the bar high. I’d swipe right, tbh.
9. LF: Kausap lang daw (chat only)
They say, “LF: decent talks”. They say, “usap lang” (talk only). The next thing you know, versace on the floor. I mean, a score is a score.
10. The HMU-If-We-Matched
They said they don’t know how to start a convo. So they said, “hit me up if we matched”.
Ang tugon (the response): huwag mo akong utusan! (Don’t tell me what to do!)
Whether you’re one of the personas listed here; whether you’ve come across these bios in your stacks of potential matches at one point; or whether you have no idea at all because you don’t use the world’s most popular dating app, the point is there’s so much more to Tinder than just swipes. And most certainly, there’s more to every picture and bio of Pinoy Tinder members than meets the eye.
