OUR VERDICT
Tinder is an easy way to find people looking for both short and long term relationships in your area.

FOR
It is widely used and well known, so there are a lot of members.
AGAINST
Users are not matched based on their personality.

This dating service is best known for being an app, but it is also available online. Tinder allows users to scroll on other user profiles: from left to right if you are interested. The app has largely popularized the term “swiping ” in reference to selecting a companion digitally, and it looks almost like a game while you’re doing it. In 2017, The Washington Post reported that market intelligence company AppAnnie data collection and found Tinder is one of the most popular platforms that people are using to find love.

The Tinder website works the same way as the app, with the addition of a small button you can click which will immediately open a document titled Meeting Notes with a chart and a program. This document is, of course, false. Let’s imagine that if you’re out of business at work and browsing dating profiles instead of doing your job, you can open false notes if someone walks behind you.

To create a Tinder account you need a Facebook account and a mobile number. Once you’re on and specify which sex you’re interested in matching, the app allows you to upload up to six photos and write a short paragraph about yourself. You also have the option to link your Spotify account so that potential matches can see what kind of music you like, or your Instagram account if you want to view even more photos. The whole setup process took our reviewers about three minutes and was much less complete than sites like eharmony and lots of fish.

Your success with Tinder will depend on where you live and what you’re looking for. Using the location services of your phone or computer, the search radius of the app comes only 100 miles from where you are, so you’re going to look at people relatively close. A 2017 Forbes article says that while Tinder has helped kill the stigma of online dating, it is largely seen as an app used primarily by people looking for short-term flings, as opposed to long-term committed relationships. Despite this reputation, Time reported that the same year that Tinder said 80 percent of its users ” are looking for a meaningful relationship.”In short, Tinder is for short meetings and for those looking for their soul mate. The key to successful online dating is to be honest about what you want.

In our tests, we created three fake accounts. Because matches don’t show up unless both sides cross over, we liked the first 30 profiles we saw for each of the three accounts. We had an average of nine games in 24 hours with all three accounts, although the Man Seeking Woman account reduced the average with only one answer. This could have to do with the area of the country where we were testing or just the day we tried. Of the matches we got, 7 percent were “super likes,” which Tinder users can use to show them really, really like the user. Tinder gives you access to free messages with your matches, and our accounts have received an average of six messages in 24 hours. The messaging feature does not allow you to send photo messages.

Using Tinder is free, but you can upgrade to Tinder Plus or Tinder Gold if you want additional features like unlimited re-dos on the profiles you’ve lost and increase visibility on the app. The downside of Tinder is that you don’t really ask what you want in a mate, so you have to rely only on what people write in their bios, which can span widely from a couple of words and emojis to multiple paragraphs. Disabling your account is easy to do when you want, and you can also report any inappropriate behavior easily.
