One Tinder user in the UK found the ultimate way to make his profile stand out from the rest — he made it into a PowerPoint presentation.
The project, titled “Why you should swipe right: A presentation by Sam,” earned romantic hopeful Sam Dixey a wealth of positive responses on the dating app. One fellow swiper found his “10/10 effort” hilarious and admitted that she did, indeed, try to match up with Dixey.
“I straight away showed my friends because I’d never seen anything like it before!” Gracie Barrow told Mashable.
Dixey said he came up with the idea to create a Tinder-specific PowerPoint presentation selling himself and his positive traits from a “mix of boredom” and “trying to be a little creative.”
In the opening slide, Dixey introduces himself by saying, “I have friends and do things outside.”
“As you can clearly see from the visual aids, I have friends and go places,” the caption continues, “This is always a good thing.”
The second slide details things Dixey enjoys doing, like taking “long walks on the beach,” and “Dominos.” He then lists his hobbies and skills on the third slide, like “drinking games” and his self-assessment at being “not the worst at sex.”
He even included a few “totally real” (read: not real) five-star reviews of himself, including, “Not the worst Sam I’ve met,” from Leonardo Di Capri Sun.
Dixey said that “quite a few old matches” have come back into his Tinder app to tell him that they’ve seen his viral profile take off across the Internet and asked him to “remember them” when he’s famous. He said the presentation has also greatly improved his current dating life.
“(There’s) quite a clear correlation between uploading it and the number of matches/dates that have happened as a result,” Dixey said.
He’s proved that a bit of effort can go a long way and that PowerPoint, typically viewed as a dull office or schoolwork application, can be an invaluable dating tool.
“Mostly everyone’s Tinder profile is the same, with good pictures of themselves and usually a s–t bio, but Sam’s was different and really stood out,” Barrow told Mashable. “I think most girls appreciate the funniness of it all!”
