5 Easy Ways to Optimize Your Profile for a Tinder Select Invite
No, You Don’t Have to Be a Hollywood A-Lister
Ahh, Tinder Select. The place for all the elite and affluent people of Tinder. From celebrities to models, business owners and everything in between, Tinder Select is the place that you definitely want to be.
And we’re going to show you how get there. Without needing to be a celebrity.
What is Tinder Select?
Never heard of Tinder Select? That’s because it’s a secret members-only elite club for Tinder users.
And just to clarify, Tinder Select is an extension to the app, not an entirely different app, that can be switched on and off during your use of Tinder.
It has been operating for quite some time now, but it’s not open to just anyone. And that’s most likely why you haven’t heard of it until recently.
Tinder Select isn’t just for celebrities, millionaires, and big-time CEO’s, though.
If you’re doing really well on Tinder, and you have a great Elo score (which I will be talking about today), then you might just be nominated to Tinder select.
But how does that work exactly? How can you get on Tinder Select?
Well, let me break it down for you.
How can I get on Tinder Select?
There are only 2 ways that one can get on Tinder Select.
- Tinder personally selects you for inclusion on Tinder Select
- You’re invited by another Tinder Select user
When you’re nominated to be a part of Tinder Select, you may or may not have the ability to invite others to join.
The way Tinder Select qualifies new members is by looking at their Elo Score, which is an algorithmic rating and score system that compares you to other users to see how well you’re doing, your desirability level, how many right and left swipes you get, and observing the score of others that you match up with.
Although Tinder claims that they don’t use the Elo scoring system anymore, and I believe I speak on the behalf of many, many Tinder users when I say we are all very skeptical about this claim and we still believe that the Elo scoring system is in place. Anyway, moving right along…
One very vital thing that will boost your Elo Score is getting right swipes. We have an entire article dedicated to teaching you how to boost your right swipes on Tinder, so definitely give that a read to help raise your Elo Score.
How Does Tinder Select Work?
So you know what Tinder Select is, but how does it work?
Well, As I said, it’s not an entirely separate app. It works like an extension.
When you’re using Tinder Select, the normal orange app colors change from orange to blue.
Now, when you’re on the Tinder Select side of things, you exclusively see other Tinder Select users.
What happens is, your profile will be seen by loads more of other potential matches than usual.
You’ll know when you’ve come across another Select user when you see their blue profile border and the Select badge on it.
So, things are not that different from the normal Tinder, in theory, but where you really will notice a difference is in the quality of your mathes.
Some people said they felt like Cupid was working tirelessly by their side.
But one thing to remember is that you can always turn Tinder Select on and off and use it as you please.
5 Things to Increase Your Chances of Getting a Tinder Select Invite
Now that you know the gist of what Tinder Select is and you know that you need to be handpicked by Tinder or nominated by others to join, then you need to optimize your Tinder profile the best that you can so that you receive an invite.
Here are 5 simple ways that you can make your profile more desireable and maximize your chances to recieve a Tinder Select invite.
1. Use the perfect profile picture
Now the ideal Tinder profile picture to increase your chances of getting an invite is as follows: simple, has contrast, direct eye contact with the camera, bright colored outfit, alone.
That’s not too much to ask for, is it?
You need your first Tinder profile picture to be perfect. That’s a huge deciding factor in whether someone will swipe left or right on you.
When you have a great profile picture, you’ll get more right swipes. When you get more right swipes, you increase your Elo score.
That’s one easy way to optimize your profile for an invite.
Here are 2 examples of the perfect Tinder profile picture.

2. Fill out your Bio
You’ve got to fill out your bio. It doesn’t matter if you’re the worst writer or storyteller in the world. Anything is better than nothing.
It’s already a proven fact that just by writing something in your bio, you have a 66% increased chance of getting someone to swipe right on you, than having it empty. And again, the more right swipes, the more “desirable” Tinder considers you.
3. Answer All of Tinder’s Questions
You might not be the most photogenic of the bunch, but that’s okay because Tinder’s algorithm takes more than just right swipes into consideration.
You need to make sure you fill in all of the answers to Tinder’s questions.
That means you need to list your education, age, sex, current job, etc, in order to increase your chances of getting into the elite side of Tinder.
The more things that Tinder can rate you on, the better.
4. Connect Your Instagram
Connecting your Instagram is another amazing way to boost your chances of an invite.
When you connect your Instagram, Tinder can take a look at your number of followers and other factors that may affect your Elo score and overall chances of getting an invite.
5. Use Tinder Boost
One final tip we recommend you to follow is using Tinder Boost.
Yes, it does cost money, but we believe it could be worth it.
When you use Tinder Boost, it will send your Tinder profile to the top of the queue, for the following half-hour, for all the Tinder users in your area to see.
Although Tinder Boost only lasts for a half hour, it will give you 10 times more views than normal, which should result in a lot of activity on your profile.
Which in turn is great for your Elo score, if it’s positive activity.
Finally, keep your profile fresh and try to be as active as possible on Tinder.
Engage with users and try to have longer conversations and get past small talk.
They say there are thousands of factors that go into your Elo score, so just make sure you’re doing everything in your power to make it to Tinder Select, if that’s something you want.
Ultimately, when you’re online dating, we want to remind you to stay safe. DateID always has your back when it comes to getting some extra information about your potential date.
You’re your own #1, so you gotta look out for yourself, and we’re there to help you.
