First up, to log in, you need to have a Facebook account.
It banks on the Facebook verification process, which can be used to create a profile on Tinder as well.
Similarly, logging in with Linked In or with references only gives you a 15 per cent score.
Percentage earned from adding your phone number is 10 per cent.
To sum up, the profiles on Tinder are verified; it shows your mutual friends from Facebook and lets you choose people from various town/cities. It’s called the ‘Matchmaking app for singles’ and largely works on matching people based on their interests.
Unlike the dating apps that we talked about previously, you don’t necessarily need to reject people, you can like them using the ‘heart’ icon; message them to find out more about them or simply move on to another person by swiping right.
Worry not, if you do not want to disclose your location, for there’s Tinder Plus for that. It logged me out on several occasions where there was no net connectivity.
For example, one can just switch off the discovery of their profile and only keep chatting to the people one has liked.
Tinder therefore could not stay far behind in our list.
It isn’t entirely similar to Truly Madly as it gives you a number of settings through which you can date ‘differently’.
However, looking at the popularity of these online dating websites in India, I decided to experience the ‘never before experienced’ arena myself.
So I plunged into the world of dating apps, swiping men I liked right and those I didn’t like to the left — most apps have the same operating mechanism.
