Tinder is a dating app designed to help you find attractive people nearby to share common interests with. Get talking to them directly from the app itself and you’re on you way to going out on your first Tinder date.
Tinder shows you other users in a very straightforward format. In fact, its trademark simplicity is what’s made it land an anchored spot upon the Olympus of all other dating apps—if you will. After logging on, you’ll see a photo of another user. If he or she is to your liking, you just tap on their photo to get more photos and some background information. Then, swipe right if you liked him or her, otherwise swipe left if you didn’t.
With these two simple gestures – swipe left and swipe right – managing your Tinder account is a synch. Now you can filter out anyone you aren’t immediately attracted to or get in touch with people you might actually like in a seconds flat. It goes without saying that the pictures you choose to upload onto Tinder are crucial, as they will totally determine how other users perceive you—much more so than on any other apps.
Within the settings options for Tinder (they’re also super simple), you select which gender and age range in which you are interested in, as well as filter out other users who you consider to be too far away. So, for example, you could have the app only show you men from 18 to 28 years old, located 5 kilometers or less away.
Tinder is an excellent app for finding dates. Its outstanding simplicity and ease of use are unsurpassed. In just five minutes, you’ll see dozens of different people you could probably have a good time with, although that all depends what you’re really looking for.
