A new algorithm alternates the photo first seen by others when you show up on Tinder and notes each response to put your best foot – or picture – forward to new people. Just remember according to a new study by the University of Iowa, the secret to success on dating apps comes down to making sure that your profile pictures aren’t all too pristine.
Yes, Tinder has introduced verified profiles for “notable public figures, celebrities and athletes” – much like Twitter and Facebook. But with Tinder, only someone you’ve ‘liked’ can make contact.
Alongside the likes of Leondardo Di Caprio, Dave Franco and Hilary Duff, Betches recently discovered that Coach Carr from has also joined the popular online dating app – and his profile is SO fetch. We’ve found it’s rare for guys to actually start up a conversation once they’ve matched with you, leaving you with lots of matches and not much else. Many men are only on Tinder for a quick hook-up, so if it’s a serious relationship you’re after this app might not be for you.
Tinder then finds you potential matches near your location (you can narrow it down by age and distance, too) and if they take your fancy, you swipe right to ‘like’ them. If they’ve also ‘liked’ you – then bingo, it’s a match and you can start messaging. You need a Facebook profile to be able to use the app. Thanks to an update, we have Tinder Online which you can now use on any device – including your laptop or, dare we say it, work computer.
So if you need a break from spreadsheets and fancy a scroll, it’s totally possible without being glued to your phone. We know what you’re thinking: how on earth are we meant to create the perfect Tinder profile (right-swipeable obvs) to lure in our soul mate? So spend less time ordering your pics, and more time swiping for Mr or Mrs Right.
And now the Tinder experience is about to jump from our phones to our physical lives, thanks to the genius of AI technology.
