Because of this, Tinder's end-of-year trends report is definitely worth checking out, if only to gather inspo for your next profile update. According to the app, "real" was the most used term in Tinder bios this year, followed by "lit" and "cause" or "mission".
"Stan" and "tea" – presumably as in "spill the tea", not a cup of English Breakfast – were also super-popular on bios.
Tinder users from "Generation Z" – people aged between 18 and 24 – were more likely to mention causes or missions in their bio. Millennials aged 25 and over were more likely to mention travel and adventure.
Tinder also revealed that Glasgow is the UK city which experienced the biggest rise in swipes this year, followed by Birmingham, Liverpool, London and Leicester.
Swipes also snowballed in Sheffield, Wolverhampton, Nottingham, Leeds and Hull.
Oh, and Tinder said that use of the "facepalm" emoji spiked this year, which can't help feeling pretty appropriate in the light of the current political situation both in the UK and globally.
