Introducing the Tinder Commandments

This year, Valentine's Day falls on a Saturday. Why is that important, you may ask? Well, for those in loving relationships it isn’t but, for those going solo this year, it poses a number of issues. For example, there will be no work to take your mind off the date. Cafes, streets and public transport will be filled to bursting with couples who have no prior commitments to stop them celebrating the gift that is their blossoming relationship. None of your ‘couple’ friends will be free for your usual Saturday night shenanigans.

Yes, when you're single and you've been ready to mingle for some time to no avail, a Saturday Valentine's Day can feel like the ultimate insult.

But there's no need to despair. If the Times' source 'with knowledge of the situation' is to be believed, the online dating app Tinder has been growing in popularity at an unprecedented rate recently - fast approaching 50 million active users. To those feeling underwhelmed at the prospect of being love-free this Valentine's Day, this could mean that the app could pose a potential solution, and one with rather good odds of finding someone you feel a spark with.

But we're not all wired to wow online, in fact, some of us can make a bit of a pig's ear of it. We're talking off-putting profile pictures, over-zealous bios and messages that instantly kill any chance of a connection (trust us, there are websites dedicated to bad opening lines on Tinder).
That's why Insurance2go wanted to help you lovely ladies and gents looking for love, by releasing an indispensable guide to help you swipe (and be swiped) to success.

So give Cupid a helping hand this year and take a look at our Tinder Commandments.
