How Exactly Does Tinder Work?

Tinder has been becoming more and more popular in the past few years. It seems like everyone has a profile these days. With the app, it’s easy to find people you have things and common with and you might end up meeting the love of your life. The thing about this app is that some people aren’t even sure how to use it or what it’s all about. We’ve put together an app to help people understand how Tinder works and how they can start matching today.

Tinder Plus & Tinder Gold

The first thing to know about is Tinder Plus & Tinder Gold. These are paid levels of the app and while you don’t need them to use the app, they can give you some extra features that you can’t use if you’re just using the basic level. You have to pay a monthly fee to use these levels and some of the features you get are: an ad-free app, you can rewind any swipes, you don’t have a limited number of right swipes and you can see who has swiped you.
Create Your Profile

Once you decide which tier you want, the next thing you have to do is actually create your profile. This is where you sign up, so you want to make sure you use actual information. There isn’t any information that can put you in danger, but you’ll have to put things like your city, birth date and email address. If you don’t feel like entering all of this information manually, you can link the app to your Facebook. Doing this will enter all the information for you.

Edit Your Profile

The next thing you do is edit your profile. This is the step where you actually fill out the important things in your profile. For starters, you want to add some pictures so potential matches can see what you look like. Make sure you choose a decent variety! You’ll also want to fill out the different areas of the profile, especially your bio. You only have so many characters to use so you want to make sure you make it count!

All About the Swipe

Once your profile is ready to go, you’re ready to start swiping! When you go to the area of the app where you can meet new people, you’ll start seeing profiles of the gender you said you were interested in when you signed up. You’ll see their photos, age, distance from you and their bio. If you are attracted, then swipe right and if you don’t, then swipe left. If they swiped right on you too, you’ll see a page that says, “It’s a Match!”

Meet Your Matches

Once you see who you’ve matched with, you can send them a message to see if they want to meet up. Where you meet up or what you do depends entirely on you guys. The sky is the limit and if you don’t like them in person, you can get right back to swiping!

Now that you know more about Tinder, you’re ready to get your profile up and running. Make sure you fill out your profile to reflect your personality and give you the best chances of getting great matches! Even if you don’t find your soul mate, you might form some amazing friendships.
