While there are a fair few people on Tinder who use it strictly to collect swipes, many people are actually inclined to meet up in real life, which is not always the case with dating apps.
Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps, too (hitting almost 50 million users back in late 2014), meaning the likelihood of matching with someone you’re interested in who doesn’t live super far away is greater than with apps that have fewer users.
To browse for someone you like, you merely tap the “matches” option, which, oddly, does not show you the people you’ve matched with but rather the people you could potentially match with.
If that interface is too chaotic for you, tap the “quickmatch” option, which restricts the results to photos only.
One by one, the hopeful suitors are eliminated, until only one remains. One popular 'Bachelorette' hot couple, Emily Maynard and Jeff Holm, broke off their much-publicized engagement. And, if you're a reality TV addict, consider voting on these lists of the best reality competition shows, reality dramas, cooking competition TV shows and medical shows.
You can answer questions, giving both your answer and what you’d like your potential match’s answer to be.
This creates a percentile score for users that reflects your compatibility.
The interface is extremely clunky and the photos are a little small.
You also have to tap on a user’s small image to see a larger version and the person’s profile, which is simply too large for an app.
