Dating in the Tinder World

Many people who have heard of the service often asks how does tinder work? For those of you who aren’t familiar with the hyperlocal platform, Tinder works by matching eligible (and, let’s face it, not-so-eligible) bachelors and bachelorettes who share a mutual attraction. In a nutshell, the app works its magic by sending alerts when another user joins the site who falls within your desired location, age range, and gender. If you like the looks of that person, swipe right across their profile. If you’re not interested, swipe left and you’ll never see them as a potential match again. If both parties swipe right, it’s a match! The two of you can now chat privately via Tinder’s messaging platform. From there, the rest is up to you.
