HOW TO LOOK HOT AF ON BADOO ACCORDING TO STEPHEN BEAR
The reality star romantic on dating dos and don’ts.
So, Bear, what kind of profile would make you swipe right on Badoo?
A really fun picture of the person smiling and looking happy, not a group photo! Would love it if they were dressed as a Disney character.
What would be your first message to a match?
My opening line would be – “did it hurt when you fell from heaven…” or… “oi bitch.”
OK… What kind of chat would impress you?
Playing hard to get but still fun. Having a good sense of humour, or knowing a good one when you hear it – I like replies to my banter to be like “hahhahahahhahaha” – and never hit me with a “k”.
What sort of personality traits do you look for in a girl?
Funny, down to earth, clever, supportive, good listener, trustworthy, adventurous – basically me but as a girl.
Are there any things you would avoid doing?
Don’t be a massive stalker, don’t do too much mind-fucking just be straight up and ask if they’d like a naked cuddle, and don’t compare me to your exes – c’mon, that’s just not fair on them.
Finally, what are your 5 top tips for anyone using Badoo for the first time?
1. Have a fun bio, nothing too deep and serious – a cool quote such as “I’m fun I could put it in your bum”.
2. Put a good photo up of yourself but DON’T be a catfish.
3. Don’t give credit card details out online.
4. If the person accepts your date make sure it’s a fun one so think outside the box like a hot air balloon.
5. Don’t share nudes online.
