Belfast man ranked as one of Tinder's seven most successful UK singles

Oisin is looking for a sporty girl who will play GAA with him.

A young man from Belfast has been ranked as one of Tinder's seven most successful UK singles.


According to the dating app, 19-year-old university student and lifeguard Oisin is one of seven singles who have been turning heads this summer on Tinder’s Swipe Island.

For those out of the loop, Swipe Island was launched two months ago to coincide with Love Island and is an event experience appearing on the dating app in bursts throughout June and August.

"Singletons looking for a (holiday) romance can be transported to their very own virtual “Casa Amor” to couple up without any of dramz of the real villa," Tinder says.

Asked what turns his head when using Tinder, Oisin said: “I’m looking for a girl who is sporty and shares my passion for working out. I play Gaelic Football for my club and county and want someone who’s going to cheer me on from the sidelines, or even kick the ball with me.


"It’s also really important to me that my match is modest and down to earth - arrogance is definitely a turnoff!”

In terms of advice for getting noticed on Tinder, he said: “My top tip would be to open the conversation with a GIF or your best joke, to kick things off on the right foot.

"I also reckon that showing off your hobbies and interests in your photos gives your match something to chat with you about and know straight away if you’ll have things in common.”

The other six people chosen as being the UK's most successful singles include two primary school teachers, a radiographer and a podcaster.


To coincide with the final of Love Island, Tinder users are encouraged to head over to Swipe Island for their chance to bag a date with one of these most successful singles.

The final ever Swipe Island will be live in the Tinder app on Monday, 23 August from 8-10pm in line with the final episode of Love Island.
