How many people have you matched with on Tinder?

15 Mar 2016

Tinder’s new matchmaking tool has drawn growing attention to a forgotten counter, which lets you know how many people you have matched with over time.

Earlier this month, Tinder started gradually rolling out a new matchmaking tool, something that was in high demand, it claimed.

But since then we’ve learned of an even better tool, and one users already have. When you match with someone you can ‘share’ the news, which doesn’t sound appealing in the slightest.

However, once you do tell your mate that you’ve found your ideal match, the message they receive tells them exactly how many matches you’ve had.

So, how many Tinder matches have you ever had?

The matchmaking tool was added earlier this month due to popular demand. “It was one of the most popular requests from our users,” said Rosette Pambakian, a vice president at the company. “So we are testing it.”

In various parts of the world, though seemingly not Ireland, yet, Tinder introduced the ability to ‘share’ a profile that you spot, which sends a “temporary link” to a friend.

This link gives your pal full swipe-friendly functionality for 72 hours (or five clicks). They can swipe the profile and then appear in the shared user’s recommendations “as long as you meet your potential match’s preferences”.

You can opt out of including a share option, too.

It’s being tested in various locations around the world, with different appearances depending on the location. Tinder recently announced what professions (of those declared) that users find the most attractive.

According to the company’s US data, entrepreneurs of both sexes do well, but pilots (male) and physical therapists (female) top the charts.
