It works as intended.
It works as it is supposed to, no issues come to mind. Matches work I guess. SuperLikes don’t make a difference in my opinion. I don’t like that you can match with someone and then un-match as soon as you do. I get if you aren’t interested or made a mistake, but I feel a lot of people just swipe right as fast as they can. So I constantly get notified I have a match but I check and no one is there, or someone liked me and I matched with them but when I go to send a message, they un-match and I get an error message. It’s kind of depressing when it happens every day. I put out on my profile things people would like to know and I have plenty of pictures, but eh. It’s whatever. Tinder places is kind of neat but I haven’t really experienced that except for when I go to this one place I know the girl who works there and really it just made things awkward. This app has a one-size-fits-all appeal that works for most in a certain demographic, so in that sense it is a great app.
A real complaint I have is that underaged people use this app and lie about their age, nothing Tinder team can really do the verify but I personally really don’t like it.
Advice for first time user: Please take the time to really get to know the person and don’t be afraid to ask anything. Like with everything in life, there are good and bad encounters, don’t get discouraged when dealing with the bad and blame the app.
Good app with annoying feature
Tinder is a great dating app! The like/dislike is super intuitive. Tapping the right of a photo to view additional profile photos before swiping left or right is brilliant. The messaging, the pay features of being able to see who likes you first and then deciding whether to like or dislike them, is wonderful! Most of the time I just search through who likes me already versus wasting my time swiping on everyone. Though I still swipe sometimes. The main reason for writing this review is to point out the blatantly obvious feature tinder has built into this app that is extremely annoying to me. And it has to do with push notifications. I don’t like my phone going off with notifications frequently, so I only have push notifications turned on for when someone sends me a message. And turned off for things such as when someone likes me, when a new match happens, message likes, super likes, and all the other stupid notifications I don’t want. The issue is when they’re mostly turned off, tinder will log you out of the app, for no apparent reason, and when you log back in, all push notifications will be turned back on. Yet, when I leave the notifications turned on, tinder will not log me out. I get that you want me to be notified more, so I think about tinder more often, thereby increasing my desire to spend more time on the app and ultimately make tinder more money, but that’s a very annoying way to do it. Please fix this.
Tinder discriminates! Used to be the BEST, but now it’s honestly the worst
Tinder used to annihilate the competition — so much so that I purchased the premium service numerous times, primarily to communicate my appreciation for their inclusiveness! As I wrote to their customer service department, not all of us fit into a “neat little box,” and Tinder used to not only understand that...they also supported it and encouraged diversity (even if some closed-minded members reported profiles). Suddenly, though, I have been outright banned from the app several times, for reasons that are ANYTHING but consistent among other users. I was told that some private messaging language between me and other members was “sexual” (umm, hello, it’s a HOOKUP app — so sexual discussions are status quo...and this is a big part of what makes Tinder so popular!) and that’s the reason I got banned. So I created a new profile, carefully avoided writing anything sexual, but guess what? Boom: banned again. And again. Ad nauseum. If users aren’t interested in a profile, all they have to do is swipe left; but there are many users I’ve connected with who ARE interested/intrigued, proving that there is a place on the app for profiles like mine. Make this right, Tinder! Stop discriminating and allow me (and many others) to once again enjoy the excitement of new interactions and connections.
Tinder plus is not at all as I thought 👎
When looking at what you’re capable of doing if you pick up tinder plus, the main attraction to me was how it said you would be capable of rewinding your left swipes. Therefore I assumed I would be able to go back through them in a list, somewhat like my matches page, but it’s everyone (including all the bots) I swiped left on.
However that was not the case when I went to the rewind button 🙄😡 and in fact it doesn’t even work all the time - I’ll explain how. You can ONLY rewind the person you JUST swiped left on, nothing more. And not only that, but say you accidentally swipe left on someone then immediately get a phone call before you hit the rewind button. If you take the phone call, talk with whoever, then after hanging up go to send a few texts/msgs via whatever means, then do whatever else and return afterwards to tinder and remember that you meant to undo your left swipe. Most of the time the rewind button will be faded (unavailable) because since you temporarily left the app it will have completely forgotten the individual you accidentally swiped on, completely negating the purpose of the rewind button 🙄
The cherry on top of it all is that, yes, it’s $2.75 a month or whatever you agree to before taxes, however you pay for those months all at once! They don’t wait and charge you the small amount month by month like a real subscription fee 👎
Tinder, in my experience is the best “dating” app on the market. I have tried them all. If you’re will to pay for it, it gets that much better. I believe I purchased the six-month upgraded package or whatever they offer for $20, I was highly impressed. You get five super like a day which nine times out of 10 guarantee you a match, or at least with me they did. I think it also gives you two boosts a month? Those are like gold, use a boost and they usually got 50 to 100 matches. Tinder is average compared to other apps when it comes to quality of matches, in my opinion, it’s the most widely used, and average App on the market, I think in society, it can and has been holding a certain reputation as a hook up app. I think that is true, but there are quite a few women that use it to look for relationship. When compared to bumble, I think that tinder is the second best option out there for quality of hook ups. The only real issue I have with Tinder, is the fake profiles, there are so many of them, usually can tell by the quality of picture, and the description/biography written by the opposing person. I would suggest reporting this as often as possible to eliminate as much of the spam users as possible. Whether it’s a relationship, or a hook up, or even just friends, tenders my go to app. 8.5 out of 10 stars
Found a keeper!
I met my boyfriend through Tinder! We both actually weren’t taking the app seriously. I was just on it to kill time usually. I didn’t really meet anyone through the app in person. My boyfriend had actually watched a video with his friend where two guys switched Tinder accounts, so they got on and decided to do that for the fun of it. When I swiped right on my boyfriends account, it was actually his friend I first talked to! (he always jokes saying he catfished me) After just a short conversation, I added the real guy on snapchat. Anytime I got some guys snapchat, I never sent the first snap but this time I did! We ended up talking all night and then the next day he stopped by the coffee shop I was working at so we could meet. The day after that, we hung out and we have spent almost every day together since then! We’ve been dating for a year and a half now. I’m so thankful I came across him on this app. I had no idea anything like this would come from a dating app that usually isn’t taken seriously. He gave me his mom’s promise ring that his dad gave her. You know when people say you just know when you found the one? Well I know! I try to encourage people to give the app a shot. You never know who else could be on there!
Waste of money and time
Don’t bother getting this app. Lots of people praise this app for finding the one guy/girl that they’ve been looking for, but I never have found the one for me when I used this app.. i don’t know if it’s just the location of where I am (I live in Indiana) or what.. lots of girls that I tried to talk to were just a bunch of smartasses and that when I was doing things formally, you know, get to know them better and such, that they were disappointed in me and didn’t want to talk to me anymore.. I’m not sure what exactly they were disappointed in.. I’m being real right now, I’m a very nice honest and understanding guy.. I might not be popular or do sports, in which that might be why I’ve struggled to find the right one on tinder.. in fact that’s a lot of girls these days, but I’m guessing these girls that I’ve tried talking too wanted someone who wanted to have sex with them.. I’m sorry but I was taught to wait until marriage, and I’ll continue to stand by it.. but anyways Tinder was a big waste of time and money for me.. if you’re an honest caring nice guy/gal but you’re not popular want sex or do sports, you’ll struggle to find the one. If you do sports, popular and want sex with random strangers, this app is just for you.. I’m not denying that I won’t find the right one, but this app has not helped me nor will it ever help me.. people just need to learn some respect and be real instead of being fake and lying..
It’s ok? I guess?
Over the past 5-6 months of being on the app, I’ve met only...1 friend. I’ve met a few people that only lasted for 3-5 days of talking and that’s it. I met one girl and we met in real life, but turned out she wasn’t really what I liked. I did want a friend with benefits, guy or girl it didn’t matter. But over these months, I didn’t get that. The app is great and I’m sure other people have been successful at finding hook ups, relationships or simple friends. But me? None. Without the subscription, you basically can swipe left or right and match with a person as well as creat your profile and chat with people. But with a subscription, you can ‘Super Like’ a person and see who ‘Liked’ you without you even swiping right or left on that person. But about 95% of the people I see on there are muscular, toned, beautiful, college, beer and weed loving guys. Girls? A bunch of cute skinny girls on there with nice bodies and an attractive face. I’ve seen some cute chunky people on there, and some in between. But majority are attractive people, which I know I have no chance of hooking up with. I’m not ugly, I know that for sure, but I’m sure no toned guy would go for a thick girl like me XD. Get the app and try it out, maybe you’ll have better results. But overall it’s an app I’ll spend on for about an hour and a way to pass the time.
More of a social experiment than a dating app
I have been on this for a while and have observed at this appears to be more of a social experiment an actual dating site. I have put money into the service just to see what will happen and I’ve learned that it’s really not worth it at all. The only thing that I have learned from the services is: you are able to learn about what ladies (from a male perspective) like about your appearance (supporting the shallow vanity of perspective), and how simple or dimwitted they are for falling for whatever cheesy one line pick up I can come up with. I would go further on a limb and say that it is highly unlikely that the majority of people on this app actually meet up with anyone. The interfacing, as it pertains to editing the profile, is horrible. With as much money that I imagine is spent on this app by customers, one would imagine that they would put more focus and making it easier to manage photos and put more than 500 characters in a bio that describes a human being seeking a Relationship of any kind. For those with iPhones... when entering information into the biography, it often tries to cancel typing and moves randomly making it difficult to edit anything. Starting a conversation with such little to go on, and terrible interfacing is difficult for even the most fluent ‘Casa Nova’.
Thank You, Tinder
My best friend suggested that I download Tinder. Well, she downloaded it for me and set up my profile. I was skeptical and didn’t really try. I un-downloaded it and re-downloaded it a few times. One day I was like “you know what? I’m just gonna swipe. If something happens then it happens.”
I’m beyond happy that I listened to my best friend because if it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have met my amazing boyfriend. I found out that he works at a place I go to a lot so meeting him in person for the first time was so easy. He was great! We had a lot in common and held conversation easily.
After going out on a couple dates, we got together. We’ve been together for over a month now and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. He is so honest, caring, and genuine. We spend so much time together, with each time being more amazing than the last. It’s hard to think how a relationship that’s so real was born on a dating app like Tinder. I didn’t think it would be possible. I thank him for swiping right on me from time to time which gets a laugh and a big hug from the both of us. Thank you, Tinder, for being the reason why my boyfriend and I met. None of this would be possible without you
