On Friday 22nd May 2015 James Gilmore was joined by new author Rosy Edwards who, on the day of the interview, had just officially published her first book, "Confessions of a Tinderella" which highlights some of her stories, experiences and lessons learned from dating through Tinder.
After a few unsuccessful dates with friends of friends, Rosy put herself on Tinder and quickly learnt the unspoken rules the hard way. In the book, there are also anecdotes of the dates themselves. From a sky-high dinner date to a borderline drug bust in Chelsea, Rosy has experienced it all. She falls for the wrong guys, ditches the nice ones, but can she finally find her happy ending.
During her appearance, she told James her Top 3 Tips for anybody looking for dates on Tinder.
1. Always be wary of people who have their profile in black and white.
Rosy Edwards: Black and white is much more flattering than colour, so if you see someone’s profile and it’s black and white it might be worth investigating their other photos but I’d usually give them a swipe left. If you can’t have a colour profile then there’s something wrong.
James Gilmore: I read something really funny, in one of the documents I was reading about the book, it says (I don’t know if they’re exactly your words or not), “If it’s black and white they’re usually either really ugly or really ginger!” I have a very good friend who’s ginger!
Rosy Edwards: That can be true, it’s worth bearing in mind that I have ginger hair so, for me, I wouldn’t date someone who has ginger hair because it’s just too similar. But, gosh, I have plenty of male friends who are ginger and they’re very attractive. Look at Damien Lewis – you wouldn’t swipe him left! Maybe ugly… possibly – but nothing wrong with being ginger, it does just suggest that sometimes.
2. Make sure the person is standing next to something than is scalable.
Rosy Edwards: If they’re standing next to something like a post box because then you can get an idea of their height. The amount of dates I’ve been on where the guys been really good looking in his pictures and he turns up and he’s not very tall – it happens so frequently! Even though people put their heights on, people aren’t always truthful about that. Also, make sure they’re not sitting down in all of their pictures! Standing up next to something whereby you can gauge their height is the best tip.
3. Swipe left ANY guy who has taken a torso selfie.
Rosy Edwards: That’s just moronic. Just don’t bother.
James Gilmore: It’s it not worth their time to put a top on; it’s not worth my time!
