Tinder: How long to wait

You got a match, but how long should you wait before contacting her?

How to message girls on Tinder

When it comes to Tinder, this is actually one of the most common questions that guys have. You get a match, you're excited, you want to speak to her right away... but at the same time, you don't want to seem too eager. It's basically a modern version of the age old "how long should I wait before calling her?"

The right answer is this: 12 to 24 hours. If you message her right away, she may notice how quickly you jumped at the opportunity to contact her. If you wait too long, she may have forgotten your face or started talking to someone else instead. Waiting 12 to 24 hours gives her just the right amount of time to start wondering why you haven't contacted her yet when your message finally comes along.

Your basic routine should be to check your Tinder twice every day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Each time, you should:

  • Reply to messages and "like" new girls
  • Write down the names of new matches (but don't contact them yet!)
  • Contact the matches that were new the last time you checked in

If you follow this routine, the timing of your messages will always be optimal. So there, that's one little problem you don't have to worry about anymore. There are, however, bigger issues at hand.

For instance, did you know that it's possible to double the amount of matches you get with three simple tweaks?
