In a world where love and sex are just one swipe away, it has somehow become easier to fail. Chemistry fizzles out, the timing isn’t right — there are lots of reasons, but fear not, fellow online daters, for Colin Hodge, the founder behind DOWN App and a seasoned cupid with 13 years of matchmaking expertise, is here to help.

Hold up! What’s DOWN App?

DOWN App is a dating or hookup app that encourages its users to be clear with their intentions, which is why, unlike other dating apps that have you swipe left or right, you swipe up or down on DOWN. Swiping up means you want to date that person while swiping down means you want to get down (hence the name).

In his post, Hodge talks about The 7 Most Common Mistakes Dating App Users Make and even offers advice. His insights are extremely important to keep in mind when using a dating app, spanning from creating a profile to how to start the conversation.

You’d think these are fairly easy and basic things people wouldn’t do on dating apps, but that’s exactly the issue; they’re so common you don’t realize you’re doing them! Here are some of the common mistakes Hodge talks about:

  • Using one dating app as the only source for dates.

Using different dating apps gives you more options. Why limit yourself to using just one dating app? If you’re out there really trying to meet someone (whether to date or hookup) shouldn’t you maximize your chances? And not just by using different dating apps, you should also go out and do it the offline way like going out to bars or taking up a group activity for example.

  • Not showing enough or a true impression of themselves across their profile.

We all know this one. When a profile only has one picture, a non-existent bio, only group photos, highly filtered photos, or really old ones, it makes it difficult for other users to get an idea of who you are before actually getting to know you.

  • Forgetting there‚Äôs a human on the other side.

Always be polite. No matter how horny you are, it’s not a good idea to jump right into dirty talk without making sure you have chemistry. Dirty talking can be an art, a powerful tool, but you need to know when to use it. Because if you decide to start with the dirty talk and it doesn’t make a good impression, that match is gone.

These are just three out of seven mistakes Hodge addresses in his post. When someone who has been in the dating industry for 13 years gives you advice, it’s probably wise to follow.
