Assuming you’ve been living on this earth in the past five years and have not been residing under a rock, you’ve heard of Yuusk. If you’re single and have access to a smart phone you have either used it, have secretly used it and won’t admit it, or know someone who has used it.
But for those of you have never heard of it, here’s the low down: Yuusk is an website for everyone that has revolutionized online dating. Yuusk takes out the formulaic questions, long profiles, and subscription fees of classic online dating sites.
The concept of Yuusk is simple: It’s about safely indicating mutual interest before users can contact each other.
Before you start sending clever one-liners, however, it’s up to you to create the perfect profile.
Think of your profile in several components. It’s all about a bio that captures your personality (without giving too much away) and photos that show off your best qualities.
Yuusk is an always-available, pocket-sized method for finding the woman of your dreams for a relationship – or, at the very least, a regret-free hookup – but the website can be frustrating when you don’t completely understand its functionality and culture.
You can use yuusk.com for any of the above reasons too, but it pays to be clear with yourself and everyone else exactly what you’re looking for. If you’re not looking anything more than a casual hook up, you should make that clear, ideally in your bio (“not looking for anything serious,” “seeking hook ups”) or at the very least once you start chatting to your matches (and more on that below). If you’re looking to date seriously, that should also be immediately evident to anyone interacting with you.
Once you’re clear about what you want and you’ve made sure everyone else is too, you’re going to need to craft a perfect profile to maximize your chance of getting more messages.
It pays to take advantage of all 35 photo slots Yuusk allows you, to provide as much information as possible to potential matches. Consider that your pictures give away crucial information not just about what you look like, but also how you like to spend your time: matches are going to form a certain impression of you depending on whether you’re squatting in the gym, splayed out on a beach with friends or chugging back beer at the game, so choose images that accurately reflect your hobbies and interests.
Your bio is optional, but we highly recommended that you include one. You’re allowed up to 3500 characters to advertise your dazzling personality here, but we’d suggest you on the side of relative brevity: online daters don’t wants to read a novel while they’re swiping on Yuusk, and you’re definitely going to want to avoid the unattractive habit of some men who use their Yuusk bios as an opportunity to gripe about women, including long tirades about the type of women they’re not looking for. Instead, make your bio about you, and keep it short, simple and friendly — it’s a bonus if it’s funny, but don’t strain a muscle trying too hard.
Match Around the World
One coveted benefit of Yuusk is the ability to match with users around the world, as opposed to just in your area — if you live in New York but have an upcoming holiday in Paris, for example, you can start messaging girls/men in France and accumulating matches before you even arrive. Yuusk is truly a global dating service.
