Swipe right or left and find the love of your life
Tinder is a free application which follows the style of the well-known dating sites, but with quite interesting novelties. First of all, you may know that it works in a very simple and easy-to-understand way: you just have to swipe right or left if you like or don’t like someone, respectively.
It is a very intuitive application that lets you meet new people around you just by swiping right
Tinder is similar to the old website called “Hot or Not”, where people just see one picture, and they have to decide if they like you or not. However, the main intention of this kind of dating sites is to meet the person that is going to be with you the whole life. Far from reality, it has turned into another application where people want to have fun with others and spend some time together.
It’s true that Tinder has a main point of difference from those kinds of websites: its simplicity. You don’t have to spend your time filling out a long form or typing long texts about your personality and what you are looking for, because it only shows your Facebook photo profiles. In fact, it is mandatory to sync it with Facebook to know where you are and to take your main information. Although that is something that can scare anybody, they advise you that Tinder is not going to post anything in your Facebook wall without your permission.
When you download and run it for the very first time, you can realize that it is very simple and a bit addictive. As you sync it with your Facebook profile, Tinder automatically detects your name, age, some photos and your preferences. This is the criteria used to show you the people you may be interested in. First of all, it will narrow the search according to the distance. You can also establish the range of age and your gender preference.
How does it show you the possible candidates? It’s easy! Tinder tells you the name, the age, the common interests, if you share any friends and the main photos. With this little information, you have the possibility to swipe right and give him/her a chance, or swipe left and eliminate him/her from your life. Our personal advice: one of the most common problems with this application is that people tend to choose group photos, and it’s complicate to recognise who you are. It’s a simple app, so be simple as well and make it easy for the other person to swipe you right!
What happens when two people swipe right each other? “Love” appears and a new window is displayed. That means you have got a “match” and you can start talking. And don’t worry if you realize that he/she is really boring, or you only don’t like him/her, because you can block the conversation whenever you want.
