Online dating is hard enough as it is. That’s why I’m going to help you out by providing some in-depth reviews of the most popular dating sites out there. And today I’ll be doing a comprehensive review of Tinder. But if you are looking for the most simplified version of everything, you can click here for my top dating site recommendations.
Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps on the market. By allowing users to simply swipe right or left on whoever they are (or are not) interested in, it’s very easy to use. Also, Tinder barely has the bad reputation of being just a hookup app anymore. More and more people are logging on to find serious relationships. And chances are, if someone is single, they are on it.
Payment Structure: $0 – $15 per month
Tinder’s payment structure is very flexible, especially since it is already perfectly usable with the basic free version. The added upgrades can get you things like super boosts, added privacy, and global access. But you can read all about that within the Tinder app itself. Or, you can check out my DIY profile pack for all of the details on payment structure and how you can use it to your advantage.
Ease of Setting up an Account: Easy
Since you are not even required to write a bio with Tinder, you can technically choose to upload a few photos and get swiping within minutes. You’ll be walked through the whole process within the app, and it’s totally stress free. That said, I definitely would recommend writing a little bio, even though it’s not required.
The navigation within Tinder is seamless, making it super easy to play around with. Because of this, you shouldn’t face much frustration at all when it comes to the actual usage of the app.
Quality of Profiles: Medium to High
Since many people do choose to skip the bio completely, the actual quality of profiles wouldn’t rank the highest on my list. That said, the sheer number of users makes up for this, allowing you to quickly swipe past the low-quality profiles.
Number of Members: Extraordinarily High
Everyone and their mom is on Tinder. It’s used internationally, and is becoming increasingly popular with older demographics as well.
A Few Additional Pros:
For those who are frustrated with the online dating process, Tinder can potentially act as a nice relief. Since the app itself feels more like a game than a serious dating app, it can actually bring a bit more fun into the whole dating aspect of your life.
A Few Cons:
On the other hand, since the app sometimes feels more like a game than a serious dating app, you will undoubtedly run into people who are treating it that way as well. These people might just be on the app for the sole purpose of having fun and playing around. This will happen to you at some point, but at least you can always easily “un-match” them.
Overall Rating (1-10): 9
Tinder is really at the top of their game at this point. It’s free, easy, fun to use, and widely popular. What more could you ask for in a dating app?
