If you’re a single man and not living in the forest, then you’ve probably heard of the hook up app called Tinder. Tinder is an application that allows you like or dislike profiles of people by swiping right for “like” or left for “nope”. Tinder allows users upload pictures from their phone or Facebook profile and also adds a snippet of information from their profile as well.

Although girls are on tinder for different reasons, tinder is better for one night stands than OKCupid because subconsciously, girls view Tinder as a “hook-up” app”.

Tinder is a free location-based mobile dating app that matches you with others in your area. Tinder is the most popular dating app in the world, and it basically launched the dating app craze. Tinder’s revolutionary “swipe right if you like, swipe left if you don’t” format has since been copied by numerous competitors, and apps like Tinder abound. Hinge, Bumble and Coffee Meets Bagel are some examples.

If you’re interested about the secrets of this popular mobile dating app, here’s everything you need to know about using Tinder for the first time.

What is Tinder?

Tinder was basically a 100% Hook ups only app on 2012 when it first hit the market.

Nowadays many users search life long relationships from Tinder and even marriage is not uncommon. Actually the recent studies showed that 49% of guys used Tinder to facilitate one night stands, compared to only 15% of girls.

Is Tinder Free?

The basic Tinder app is free, with the option to upgrade to Tinder Plus or Tinder Gold.

How to Create Your Tinder Profile?

First you need to download the Tinder to your phone and then you’ll need to sign in via your Facebook account. You can not use Tinder without Facebook and that is actually a good thing. It cuts down on the number of fake profiles and it makes uploading pictures to your easy.

Facebook does most of the work for you and your pics and interests will automatically load into your Tinder profile, and you can choose which photos you wish to appear on the profile.

How Tinder Works?

Once you are set up, it’s time to match with new people. You will encounter profiles of other users. Depending on which gender you chose when you set up your Tinder account, you will encounter either men, women, or both. The profiles are similar to yours. You will see a photograph in the middle of the page, the users first name, their age (unless they have hidden it with the Tinder Plus), how far away in miles they are from you (unless they have hidden it with the Tinder Plus). Some users list their university or career in the profile. You can also see the number of friends you have in common on Facebook.

Below all of the basic information about the person there are five options. You will see a rewind button, red x, a blue star, a green heart and a purple lightning symbol. You can swipe to the right across your screen to like someone or swipe to left to not like them. Or instead you can click red x, to not like them or green heart to like them. The blue star means you think they are super hot, which is called a “super like.” And the green is for yes, which is just a basic, “yes I like you.”

Their profile will slide off to the right and if they also swiped right on you, you´ll get an exciting “It’s a match” screen.
