And now the Tinder experience is about to jump from our phones to our physical lives, thanks to the genius of AI technology.
Greg Blatt, the CEO of Tinder’s parent company, Match, has announced exciting new features that he promises will ‘blur the lines between the physical and digital worlds for dating.’ After the success of Tinder Gold – which lets you pay to see who swiped right on you – the new features expected to hit Tinder in early 2018 include AI and geolocation functions allowing users to fully immerse themselves into the activities of the people they’ve already been matched with.
Dwayne Hill, who found fame in the 2004 comedy starring Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Mc Adams, describes himself as a 6’5 Emmy-nominated actor. But with Tinder, only someone you’ve ‘liked’ can make contact.
Adding ‘if you’re a good cuddler, I might let you join my gang’ in his bio. We’ve found it’s rare for guys to actually start up a conversation once they’ve matched with you, leaving you with lots of matches and not much else. Many men are only on Tinder for a quick hook-up, so if it’s a serious relationship you’re after this app might not be for you…
This option allows you to meet potential dates in a group situation as you can invite your friends too – way less awkward. Feeling like you’re not quite getting the Tinder love you used to?

It showed that you’re better off presenting your actual self rather than your idealised self if you want to attract a date.
Doing otherwise, the study explains, ‘might be coded as bragging, which is associated with negative social consequences and reduced liking.’ Another study also found that people wearing glasses in their profile picture were much less likely to get a right swipe. ‘Love travelling, cheese and wine’ and ‘I enjoy nights out as much as nights in’ are not likely to get you a match. We had a chat with Rosette Pambakian, Tinder’s VP of Comms and the woman who helped launch the world’s most successful dating app, to ask how to get a swipe right every time. ‘A lot of people think their serious, hot photo is going to get them a lot of swipes, but we’ve found that when you’re authentically smiling it actually increases your chances of getting a swipe right by 14%.’ ‘I like seeing who someone’s friends are because I think that says a lot about a person, but one group photo is enough – don’t make it your first photo, and certainly not all of them.’ get swiped right if you don’t have your bio filled out. ’ ‘It’s best to send messages instead of leaving that match idle.
