If someone presents themselves like a curmudgeon holed up in their apartment they’re going to get that back.So I make them look happy, like they have a full life — whether it’s a short profile on Bumble or Hinge or a longer profile on Match.There is no information that should be given out on a dating app that goes past surface level interest. Most of my clients are too busy to spend that much time sifting through these apps.
If someone is older and divorced, I might put them on one matching app and a ‘swipey’ app [a location-based app like Tinder] and if that doesn’t work then I’ll add something like Coffee Meets Bagel.

Golden herself met her husband through friends 16 years ago — before dating apps had hit the scene.
She has never personally used a dating app, but said her training makes her equipped to help modern singles.
Golden: If they aren’t asking you out by the third or fourth it’s not happening. Golden: My pet peeves are chest pictures, bathing suits pictures, or lying on your back in a bed taking a selfie. Look up at the camera, not down; don’t grimace, no puckering faces. It doesn’t have to be a professional photographer or work picture, it just needs to not be slovenly.
