Your Tinder profile is made up of your first name, age, photos of your choice and any pages you’ve ‘liked’ on Facebook.
You can also include your education and occupation in your bio.
Tinder then finds you potential matches near your location (you can narrow it down by age and distance, too) and if they take your fancy, you swipe right to ‘like’ them. If they’ve also ‘liked’ you – then bingo, it’s a match and you can start messaging. You need a Facebook profile to be able to use the app. Thanks to an update, we have Tinder Online which you can now use on any device – including your laptop or, dare we say it, work computer.
So if you need a break from spreadsheets and fancy a scroll, it’s totally possible without being glued to your phone. We know what you’re thinking: how on earth are we meant to create the perfect Tinder profile (right-swipeable obvs) to lure in our soul mate? So spend less time ordering your pics, and more time swiping for Mr or Mrs Right.
