Coi Leray joins EBONY for a conversation about her new Tinder Partnership as a matchmaker, and talks about what she looks for on a dating app.
If you’re playing matchmaker, what are some turn offs that would make you tell a friend not to date that person?
If I was playing matchmaker for a friend, my main turn off would be a boring profile photo. Obviously, all profile pictures should be as clear as possible, but they should also show your personality and even your interest.
What do you look for in a potential match?
I look for someone that has similar interests, that can match my vibe, and can handle my busy lifestyle.
I heard you’ve been crowned Matchmaking Monarch for Tinder, can you tell us about that?
It was fire!! We shot some fun content that brings the feature to life and highlights the power of the “friend test.” As Tinder’s Matchmaking Monarch, I was the ultimate matchmaker deciding on potential suitors before the royal court. I loved this, because I’m the self-proclaimed matchmaker of my friend group and even brought one of my single best friends along to be in the shoot with me.
Would you swipe left or right on the following situations:
Someone you know: LEFT
Your friend’s ex: LEFT
If they have kids: RIGHT
If their dating status says open relationship: RIGHT
Depending on their job title: LEFT
Someone posting a thirst trap as their profile picture: RIGHT
What’s your experience with dating apps?
Honestly, I haven’t spent too much time on “the apps” myself, but I frequently have my friends hand over their phones so that I can help them make a decision on who they should match with. A lot of the time, they can get hung up on a small detail without seeing all the interesting clues someone can have on their profile, so it’s good for them to have a second opinion.
It goes down in the DM’s, how can someone who is interested in you get your attention when it comes to sending a DM?
I guess they’ll just have to send me a message and see!
