We’ve all heard fair share of Tinder related stories. In fact, I am willing to bet that most of you reading this have used Tinder before and have had a fair share of interesting conversations, to say the least. If you haven’t been on Tinder before and are single, then why not give it a chance? It’s actually a pretty cool app and there’s a lot of fun to have on it. Perhaps some interesting Tinder facts will change your mind, if I can’t.
1) It’s the world’s most popular dating app
If somebody is single, chances are that they are using Tinder. Online dating is now more popular than ever, with one in three marriages and two in four relationships starting online. Because of this, dating apps are increasing in popularity. There are plenty to choose from, some examples being Match – which offers some nice discounts, actually – Zoosk and OKCupid, but none is as popular as Tinder, which is currently worth over $1.6 billion and has been downloaded over 100 million times. These numbers are increasing with each passing day. In short, the app has some real potential and you are guaranteed to see somebody you like on it.
2) Lots of celebrities use it Celebrities are just like us with regard to dating. Many of them use Tinder too. Big names such as Lindsay Lohan, Lily Allen, Katy Perry, and Britney Spears have all turned to the app to try and find love. This is interesting, because it means you could even hit the big time and match with a celebrity!
3) Men with beards get swiped right to more often If you have a beard, you automatically have a higher chance of matching with somebody. If you’re not sure what a ‘right swipe’ means, it’s basically the equivalent of somebody pressing ‘like’ on your profile; if two people swipe right to each other, there is then a ‘match’ and you can chat.
4)It’s not an old app Tinder has only recently turned five years old. It was launched in September 2012 and there aren’t many dating websites or apps which can say they have had the same level of success in such a short amount of time.
