In the last fifteen years, the rise of online dating has led to a dictionary’s worth of new terms and a whole host of etiquette that can sometimes leave us playing catch up.
From opening messages to avoiding ghosting, there’s lots to figure out when you step into this world, and when it comes to figuring out how Feeld works, there are a few extra questions too.
If you feel bamboozled by acronyms in daily life, then a quick list at the Desires on Feeld won’t help. From MMF to GGG, via FWB, this list is packed with some curious kinks and interests.
But Feeld’s Desires list doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s a feature that’s aimed at helping you figure out your sexual compatibility from the word go.

What Are Interests And Desires On Feeld?
Feeld was once a niche app for ethical non-monogamy, but as it grows in popularity, more people, and more vanilla people, are discovering it as an open-minded and mature community of daters with a wide range of interests. Naturally, that raises some questions.
So what are Interests and Desires on Feeld? These are tags you can add to your profile. Desires are based on intimacy and sexual preferences, while Interests include any hobbies that don’t take place in the bedroom. You can choose up to ten Desires from a pre-defined list, and write your own custom interests.
Feeld places sexual compatibility front and center of online dating in a way that other apps shy away from. If you’re on Feeld for hookups or to fulfill a particular fantasy, then Desires are an easy way to do that.
Don’t worry, they’re not all outrageously filthy either. Casual, Dates, Fun, and Friendships are all wholesome options for you to choose from.
And if you are looking for something a little more eyebrow-raising? Read on for a full rundown of the Desires on Feeld.
Feeld Desires List:
Here’s a complete list of all the Desires you can add to your profile on Feeld. And I know my school’s sexual education classes left a lot to be desired, so to speak, so check out Feeld’s own Desires Glossary to clear up any confusion.

How Do You Select Desires On Feeld?
Desires are an important part of profile-building on Feeld. They tell other users what type of dating you’re looking for, as well as if you have any deal-breakers in the bedroom.
So how do you select Desires on Feeld? You’ll be prompted to add Desires (and Interests) when you first build your Feeld profile, after downloading the app.
Once you’ve added your name, and profile pictures and written a bio, the app will present you with the Desires list.
You can leave this blank if you choose to, or add up to ten Desires. These can range from the kinky and curious to the tame. It’s a good idea to add a few to show people what you’re looking for, even if it’s dating, a FWB, or friendships.
Other people’s Desires can also inspire your opening messages on Feeld. A matching Desire could be the spark for your connection, but don’t get carried away with a sleazy opener and keep it respectful.
How Do I Edit My Interest Or Desires?
Maybe you were feeling particularly frisky when you made your profile and you’d like to reign in your desires? Here’s how to edit your Desires on Feeld.
- Open up the Feeld app.
- Tap the Profile icon in the bottom right corner.
- Tap “Profile” — this is found beneath your basic details like name and age.
- Scroll down to Desires and tap the arrow on the right.
- Select up to ten Desires from the list.
- Tap the back arrow to save.
How To Add Custom “Desires” To Feeld Profile?
Feeld is an open-minded app and it gives you plenty of options, including 20 gender identities and another 20 for sexual orientation. So if you’re feeling a bit boxed in by the list of Desires, you might want to add a custom Desire to your profile.
So how do you add custom Desires to your Feeld profile? Unfortunately, you can no longer add custom Desires to Feeld. They removed the option of adding extra Desires in 2022, and there’s no sign it’s coming back.
You can still add custom Interests by tapping the text box under the Interests tab in your profile and writing anything you like. There’s absolutely no reason why you can’t add a niche desire in here so it’s visible on your profile!
I’m guessing Feeld removed the option of custom Desires to streamline their Majestic Membership benefits. Feeld’s premium service allows you to search based on other users’ Desires, and keeping the list of Desires finite improves this function.
How To Create The Perfect Feeld Profile
Here’s how to create the perfect Feeld profile in three steps:
- Upload Great Photos
First, you need good pictures that show off your best side. That means no selfies, or, if you must, one single mirror selfie in good lighting.
Chances are, there are no good dating app profile pictures on your camera roll, ready to go. You need to go out and take dating app specific pictures to make a great profile. Find interesting backgrounds to give off an impression of a busy, multifaceted person, and make sure you’re looking well-groomed and stylish.
I like to use a mixture of indoor and outdoor pics, and I always make sure my first photo is a clear headshot where I’m smiling and looking into the camera. Researchers have even shown that eye contact is associated with attraction and interest – exactly what you need for a right swipe.
- Write a Catchy Bio
There are many ways you can go with your bio, from cheeky and witty to deep and sincere and my Tinder bio guide goes through them all. Most importantly, you do need to add a bio, and it needs to be unique, not something she’s seen before.
On Feeld, many people write sincere bios outlining what they’re looking for in a sexual or dating partner so feel free to hop on the trend.
- Add Your Desires and Interests
Lastly, Feeld encourages you to add Desires and Interests to your profile. Interests is easy: List your hobbies to give other users a sense of who you are.
Desires is a little more complicated because you have to ask yourself how open you want to be about your deepest and most intimate preferences. Remember, anything in your Feeld profile can be screenshotted, so be careful what you share.
That said, Feeld is an app where openness and authenticity is valued. So if you’re looking for something, and maybe someone, special, then be yourself: no shame, no judgment.
The Desires are one feature that makes Feeld stand out from other dating apps, alongside imaginary names and “private” photos, this is an app where fantasy can become reality.
But whether you go all in on a kink-friendly profile is up to you. Plenty of people are using Feeld for dating and relationships, while others are using it for good old-fashioned vanilla hookups.
And choosing the right desires for your Feeld profile is one thing, but you need great photos and an attention-grabbing bio too. So check out my free 6-Step Tinder Tune-Up to upgrade your profile. It may say Tinder in the name but it’s perfect for the mechanics of all dating apps and will help you perfect your profile for more matches.
