A TINDER user has come up with a sneaky way to score more matches.

Ethan, from Glasgow, uploads his photos upside down.

The tactic works because people end up swiping the wrong way.

He shared the clever hack on Twitter.

He wrote: “New tinder idea: upload all my photos upside down so girls turn their phone to look at them, obviously realise am ugly and swipe left but of course that’s now actually right bing bang boom match.”

The post has racked up more than 62,000 retweets and more than 415,000 likes.

And not surprisingly people are saying they are totally going to pinch his idea.

“Massive win in the battle of ideas,” one person replied.

Another said: “We are all living in 2018, but this guy is living in 2030.”

Others could relate: “OMG ok wow TQ for saving me.”

But not everyone was impressed.

“And a second later when girls realize they’ve made a mistake they’ll unmatch you haha,” responded one person.

Earlier this month a dater who uploaded a quirky bathroom shot as her Tinder profile revealed she’d been contacted by 23 men — but none had romance on the mind.

Instead, she has sparked a fierce debate about her toilet habits, The Sun reported.

Hana Michels said they all got in touch to tell her off for having her toilet roll back to front.

In the snap she shared on Twitter, hers is positioned so the paper hangs down the back of the roll and along the wall.

But her critics said it should hang over the front.

Her post has triggered more than 880 comments with all manner of theories as to the best way to fit a loo roll on to a holder.

According to a Tinder spokeswomanAustralians swipe 23 billion times a year on the dating app, with the average up by 18 per cent in the cooler months this year.

“Summer may be the season for sun-drenched romances, but the latest data indicates Aussies crave the comfort of a loving relationship in the winter months,” the Tinder spokeswoman said.

“Perhaps because people spend less time socialising in winter, with more time indoors to get swiping and matching.”

Tinder is notoriously used for hook-ups but its employees say they have received tens of thousands of success stories.

“These stories range from new relationships to engagements, marriages, and Tinder babies,” she said.
