You can find dating apps! Digital romance’s saviors! A lifelong companion, lust and love are literally at our fingertips! Maybe you’re looking to try out these notification-pinging, profile-matching, and right-swiping apps yourself now that you’ve heard about them.


It can be tricky to meet people in person, regardless of if you use Tinder, Bumble or Hinge – and that was never more true than during this past locked-down year. Our staff at Gentleman’s Journal is here to provide some sound, sage advice for those who are still unsure or nervous about online dating.
Especially if you’re new to the game, there’s a lot to digest. You’re going to want to know these things if you’re going to use dating apps for the first time…


Don’t be afraid to be yourself…
You might be tempted to use the most flattering picture when setting up your dating profile. The first year of your university’s black-tie ball is a dapper, debonair photo, shouldn’t you use it? For one thing, it was over five years ago. Second, it’s probably not an accurate representation of who you are unless you’re James Bond (or a maître d’). 
First of all, make your profile as honest as you can. Although it’s obviously important to look or sound ‘cool’ or ‘fun’ on dating apps, presenting an ideal version of yourself instead of who you truly are may lead to a very awkward first date. Getting a happy relationship is ten times easier if you let the other app users see the real you.
