If you're anxious to try out online dating, Tinder is likely the app you've turned to. While it is extremely popular and easy to use, it's a good idea to know more about it before getting started. Here's the facts about Tinder of 2017 you should know:
1. The MOST POPULAR DATING APP in the WORLD
Online dating is now more popular than ever before. Nowadays, more than one in three marriages begin online, and more than one in two relationships start online. Because of this, dating apps and websites are exploding in popularity. There are plenty of dating apps and sites to choose from, but arguably the most popular app of all, is one known as Tinder. Currently, Tinder is worth more than $1.6 billion and it has been downloaded over 100 million times. Those numbers are rising every day, and now you’re probably starting to see the real potential in this dating app. Whether you’re looking to forge a new relationship, or simply to hook up, Tinder will almost certainly help you out.
2. CELEBS LOVE TINDER
Yes, celebrities are just like you and I, albeit much richer. Because of this, celebrities deserve the chance to be happy too, which is why there are many Hollywood celebrities out there that are actually using the app in the hopes of finding love. To name just a few, we have celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Lily Allen, and Katy Perry, all of which use, or have used, Tinder in the past. This is great news for us everyday folks, because it means we could potentially hook up with a real life celebrity.
3. THERE ARE PLENTY of ALTERNATIVES
As popular as Tinder is, if you are searching for Tinder alternatives you are in luck, because there is plenty on offer. Believe it or not, but some of the alternatives on offer are just as good, if not better, than Tinder itself. So, if you do feel like a bit of a change, you will most certainly not struggle to find an alternative to this hugely successful dating app.
4. HAVING a BEARD HELPS GET YOU RIGHT SWIPES
Statistically, if you have a beard, you are far more likely to get more right swipes on Tinder. By the way, a right swipe means the person viewing your profile likes what they see. Whilst we’re all for equality, we can’t guarantee that girls would get quite as many right swipes as guys, if they happened to have a beard, so just bear that in mind.
5. TINDER is NOT YET FIVE YEARS OLD
As of this writing (August 2017) Tinder is not yet five years of age. Officially, the app launched way back in 2012, in the month of September. This means that Tinder will soon be celebrating its fifth year birthday. There aren’t many apps that can say they’ve managed to increase their worth to $1.6 billion in less than five years. In fact, there aren’t many apps that can say they’ve ever been valued at $1.6 billion, so the creators of the app should be pretty pleased with what they’ve accomplished in such a short space of time.
