Tinder. If we could describe it in three words, we would say: popular, easy to use and ineffective. It is, perhaps, the most popular application used as a means of acquaintance. The installation and operation processes are very simple. You download the app from your smartphone’s app store and then you are ready to create your account. A Facebook account is required and the app will ask you to declare your mobile phone number, as well.
Once you complete the steps above, you select the photos you want to be displayed in your profile and after you have set the search radius – from two to fifty kilometers – you are ready for your first match.
How do I choose my mate?
Once you create your profile, a photo will appear on your mobile screen showing the name, the age, and some extra information of another user. At that point, you are asked to “move” your finger to the right if you like it, or to the left if you want to discard that user. Whatever you choose, a new photo will be showed on your screen, for which you are invited to repeat the same process. If the people you have chosen, choose you back, you will be notified by the application and then you can talk via messages.
Super like and advertisements
You have the ability to make a “super like” daily. This means that regardless of whether or not you are chosen by the user you like, by using the super like, he/she will know that you are interested. The app, as it is reasonable, includes some advertisements, and there is a premium version with 11$ a month. With this package you enjoy 5 super likes a day, you have no mileage limit, the ability not to show up your age and the most useful: to undo your last scan. It sounds perfect, right?
Unfortunately it is not. As on most dating sites, the ratio of men and women is tilting dramatically towards men, who are typically looking for a sex partner rather than something more. At the same time, the low average age (18-30) leads to a type of acquaintance – if this ever happens – without good flirting.
In conclusion, Tinder is ideal for those who are at the age of 30 and below and are eager to spend some time playing. If you are looking for something transient, insignificant and pleasant, then download this app immediately. Perhaps, of course, you will have to wait until summer when hot tourism is expected. Have fun.
