Tinder Dating Review – Can You Really Get Laid?

I love Tinder’s explanations best from the Netflix series Simple. One of the characters explains the app to her friend, “it’s like playing a game.”

She continues to state that you can choose to get coffee dates or bar date via the app, and she ends up sleeping with those with whom she went on bar dates.

“That’s what makes coffee different from vodka.”

The husband continues the conversation with his PT client, who explains how the app works. Later, he recounts his conversation with his wife, saying that there are men all around the area — within a three-mile radius of her. He also said, “There are guys all over, and she’s receiving it three times per week.”

This episode was released in 2016. In 2019, there are many dating apps to choose from, so much of what was said is still valid.

What is Tinder like today, you ask? What is Tinder like today? Is it possible to hook up as easily as the show suggests?

Here’s a review of the dating app that will give you an update on its value and whether it’s worth downloading again.

First Impression

Tinder is a completely different app than it was when it launched. But, it has changed.

It is one of the most attractive apps available, whether you are looking for dating or something else.

Because of its great marketing and brand identity, the iconic colors are instantly recognisable.

It is easy to navigate between screens, find what you are looking for, and they will show you how to access certain items when you sign up.

Tinder’s sign up process remains the same as ever.

You have the option of creating an account using your phone number or logging in through your Facebook account.

Although you may be hesitant about connecting your Facebook account with Tinder, it is likely that they will collect information from you. However, Facebook already has your data.

You should not worry about using your Facebook account to sign up for an app that is faster than you think. Tinder is not shared with your friends so you don’t need to be concerned about them seeing it.

You can use your Facebook account to fill in your information. It automatically removes any pictures from your account. You can also choose to fill it manually using your phone number.

After you have uploaded your profile photos, created your Tinder bio and connected some apps to your profile, it’s time to start swiping.

Tinder is the best way to meet people in your local area. This will allow you to see the people you are interested in fucking.

Swiping is easy to learn. Simply swipe right if someone interests you and swipe left if they don’t. To view more information about someone, swipe up and tap right or left on their photos to see more.

If someone sees your profile, and they like you, they’ll be a match. You can see your matches in your messages area. Here you can start a conversation and view all the people you have matched with.

Contrary to Bumble, Tinder’s competitor, men will usually be the ones who make the first move.

Based on the profiles of Tinder users, it is easy to tell who is DTF and who is looking for love. Some people write what they are looking for in their profiles. They might say they don’t want to hook up, only want friends, or they’re open to anything. It’s safe for you to assume that someone won’t be specific about what they are looking for.

However, it has become increasingly difficult to talk on Tinder. Conversations end faster than the goldfish you brought home from the fair.

It’s possible to make Tinder convos without the app. However, it is difficult for some. This all depends on your communication skills.

Tinder is the most popular dating app but is it the best? What are its strengths and weaknesses?


Tinder doesn’t have many features in real life. Tinder is a very basic app if you really think about it.

They would have many more features or plans to add them to the app to make it better and remain relevant in a world of newer dating apps that bring exciting features to the scene.

Let’s look at their strengths.

To make Tinder more exciting, you can connect other music and social apps to your Tinder account.

To display basic information about yourself, such as your top songs and artists, your Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat accounts can all be linked to your Tinder account.

You can also choose an “anthem”, which you can display on your profile.

Other than that, your profile is empty.

Tinder added looping videos (i.e. Boomerangs) to its platform recently. This can be used to enhance your profile photos and make them more interesting. However, other dating apps, such as Hily, allow you to add stories to your profile. This is something I believe Tinder could really benefit.

However, you do have the option to add your sexual orientation or gender to your profile, but these options are limited.

You can also include your job title, work location, and school affiliation.

The basics.

You can see your shared interests and any mutual friends if you connect your Tinder account to Facebook.

You can Super-Like someone to grab their attention better than other matches. If you have upgraded Tinder, you can also view who has liked you.

Tinder users can send GIFs and bitmojis to each other in their messages.

There are also different ways to use Tinder. For example, college and university students can access TinderU to match with people at their school or nearby campuses.

Spring Break mode is also available in March. Match with other travelers heading to the same destination as you.

You can also use Tinder Festival Mode or Passport Mode as long as you’re traveling or attending festivals.

Festival mode lets users add a badge to their profile when they attend a music festival. It allows them to attract attention from other attendees.

Tinder Passport allows paying members to connect to anyone in the world, no matter where they are traveling. To search by location or drop a pin onto the map, you can start swiping with Tinder users in another area. You can also switch between your current and future locations.

Paid features are only useful if your goal is to spy on others or fuck up on Tinder.

You can access different features depending on which Tinder Plus subscription you choose or Tinder Gold.

All paid features include unlimited likes, the ability of rewinding your last swipe, 5 Superlikes per day and 1 Boost per month. Passport allows you to see who has liked you, receive new Top Picks every single day, and there are no ads.


Tinder charges older users, if they’re not in California, more for Tinder PLus. They settled an age discrimination suit against them in January but changed the costs to be the same for all Californians.

Tinder Plus is available to anyone who lives outside California but under 30 years old, or if you live in California.

  • For $9.99, 1 Month
  • For a total of n$37.44, you can take 6 months.
  • For $49.92, 12 months.

Tinder Plus is available to anyone over 30 in any state other than California.

  • 1 Month for $19.99
  • 6 Months for $74.94
  • 12-months for $99.96

Tinder Gold is the same. Tinder Gold users under 30 years old can get lower prices if they live outside of California. Older users will pay more, but the tier price does not apply to users living in California.

Tinder Gold prices are as follows:

  • $19.99 for 1 Month
  • 6 Months for $112.99
  • 12-months for $150.00


Everybody is on Tinder. Tinder is the best dating app for those looking for the most users and options in their area.

It is also very easy to use, so it will take you no time to get started and start swiping.

The app is free to use, and you don’t need to spend any money unless you wish to. You may find that some dating apps limit the features they offer so you have to use their trial period, which will cost money once it ends.


Tinder’s missing feature that I think would make Tinder better is a section in your profile where you can select, just like your sexual orientation, the type of relationship you are looking for.

Although it can be frustrating that Tinder has a variety of dating profiles, this feature would make it easier to find someone who is interested in a casual relationship, hookups or serious dating.

Tinder doesn’t have a photo verification system so it’s easy to fall for a fake profile. There are profiles that make influencer pictures to scam people.

It is also absurd that their subscription services are priced on an age-based basis.

Conclusions and Rating

Tinder is still a good option for singles looking to have fun and find new friends. Tinder is the perfect place for anyone looking to make new friends, find a partner, or have casual fun.

It may not be the most popular or exciting dating app, but it is still the one most people use. Because it is culturally accepted and a common app in every person’s daily life, it is the best way to meet the most people in your local area.
