Tinder increasingly inclusive and fun

We met with Tinder representatives who told us about the evolution of their dating platform; a tool that is now very popular, especially among the youngest.

There are many innovations that are added every month, such as the expansion of the information that can be added to your account, including the choice between 29 genres and 9 sexual orientations, with even the freedom of personal identification if the proposed choices do not meet your needs.

The amount of interests that allow you to approach people with common hobbies is also increasing, and for more daring you can also upload a video to your profile, and not just the classic photos. There is also the possibility of verifying the profile, a choice that according to Tinder should give some advantages in terms of "match", but we will talk about this shortly.

In addition to the classic "swipe" method to give your preference on proposed users, there is the question and answer mode, the Music Mode and many other tools that Tinder offers to find a soul mate or in general to make new friends.| ); }

By making this claim we know that such an approach could represent an important barrier to entry that would limit, even by a great deal, not only new registrations to the app but also the amount of people who would actively use it.

Author's opinion

I believe that Tinder, and dating applications in general, are a good, powerful tool and perfectly in line with the evolution of society. However, reiterating the concept of security, I am convinced that they should ensure a secure identification to all users on the platform.

Our company is not perfect, as also said by the Tinder representative I spoke to , and it must be a civic obligation to protect the safety of every person. Both from verbal assaults, and above all from physical assaults, which certainly can occur when some attacker decides to use an app like Tinder as a tool to search for "potential victims". This is not to say that those who use a dating app are a "bad guy", obviously the majority of users are genuine and do not represent any risk, but actions should be taken to totally cancel the risk, or at least try. , and not just to reduce it.

Probably an app capable of ensuring maximum transparency and security could be an app where people would also be willing to invest higher amounts than those required today for continuous use. However, I'm happy to see that Tinder is working on developing new features. It might be interesting to offer the possibility to get in touch only with verified people, leaving the more adventurous free to navigate.

You’re using Tinder wrong – experts reveal the WORST ways to start a chat and why ‘Hi’ is a turn-off

FIRST impressions are everything and never has it been truer than in dating.

How do you let someone know you're interested without appearing too keen, too cheesy or just a bit boring?

It's a tough balance to strike but dating experts have shared with The Sun how you should and should not start your dating chat, whether it's on Tinder or anywhere else.

Don't start with 'Hi'

'Hi' is just too generic, as Match’s dating expert Hayley Quinn explains.

'Remember if several people have sent the same message as you, you will most likely get buried in their inbox and not receive a reply,' she said.

Tina Wilson, founder of dating app Wingman, says 'Hey' is just as bad.

'This is dubbed ‘the hey-ter’ and our Wingman statistics show online daters tend to ignore someone who tries to start a conversation with this simple but over used word,' she explained.

Comment on something in a person's profile

Mentioning something unique from the person's profile is a good way to start a chat.

'This shows you’ve paid attention and are willing to put yourself out there which is an attractive personality trait to anyone looking to find a commitment, and, love,' Hayley added.

Be careful not to over compliment

Going in too fast and heavy with the compliments doesn't give off the best impression either.

'If you over compliment without building a connection with someone first, they may feel like your compliments are insincere,' Hayley explains.

'Instead of complimenting someone on their looks, the way to present yourself as a real keeper is to listen to someone’s responses and pay a compliment about their personality.'

No cheesy chat up lines

Just no.

According to language experts from Babbel, the worst to come out of the UK include:

  • I ought to complain to Spotify for you not being named this week’s hottest single.
  • I’d like to take you to the movies, but they don’t let you bring in your own snacks.
  • Do you know what my shirt is made of? Relationship material.
  • Don't make inappropriate comments

    'Don't be a creep,' clinical sexologist Katie Lasson explains.

    'Do not start a conversation by making inappropriate comments about the persons body or physical features.

    'It's fine to compliment their eyes, hair or smile.'

    And don't lie

    Lying is never good - and pretending to be something you're not isn't a great start either.

    'Never start a conversation by lying,' Katie adds.

    'Don't say you're into something if you're not.

    'Be open, honest and your true authentic self.

    'People aren't stupid and will work out that you're lying eventually.'
