$30 a month for tinder gold...
Account being banned
by shadyscareface32 on 2019/04/18 22:56
I finally went back to this app after a year and when I try logging back into it, it said account banned, so now when I try using my number to make a new account it keeps saying banned
Terrible banned for no reason at all.
by Scilla from mia on 2019/04/18 22:42
Barely use tinder only when I’m bored just to see what is out there. But, randomly tried getting in the app and tells me I am banned ?? I didn’t violate any policies or nothing but apparently to them I did or maybe someone didn’t like my account and reported me for no reason. Wrote to customer service (terrible) because they won’t even investigate or see why I was banned just refer me to the rules and policy which I read and I did nothing against their rules no nudity nothing. I will remain banned with my phone number and fb page. But it that email they sent back def seemed like a copy and paste their you go to lazy to do anything type of service. If a zero could be awarded I would give them that a one isn’t even something they should even earn.
Terrible update
by OVazquez13 on 2019/04/18 22:09
Can’t swipe left once your likes run out, also they changed the algorithm to where it’s even more difficult to find those who swiped right on you...
by BEPants24 on 2019/04/18 21:01
Unable use app to because there was a FAKE account made using my information.
Cannot use while listening to anything
by Katy562 on 2019/04/18 20:44
The ads stop your music or podcast. Frustrating and pointless. Makes me angry at the companies advertising.
Terrible customer service.
by Holycow199569 on 2019/04/18 20:32
The app is flooded with cash app and premium Snapchat bios, yet I find myself banned with no explanation.
Recent app update errors
by Oboogie33 on 2019/04/18 19:04
The newest update won’t like me update any info or add pics and it won’t let me superlike or boost.
by Kev503 on 2019/04/18 19:04
Delete this f*cking scam
Keep getting error messages when swiping
by Jon Parnell on 2019/04/18 19:03
I recently downloaded the app and upgraded to the gold package. So far I’ve only been able to see the Top 10 picks for me every 24 hours. Doesn’t match me with anyone else. Additionally, when I try to swipe left, right, or use the super like option I get an error that says com.cardify.tinder.JSONE. It refuses to accept my swipes. When I log out and log back in, the same people from my Top 10 picks show back up as if I haven’t already swiped them. Have even tried deleting and redone loading the app a couple of times. Tinder, please look into this glitch if you hope to be a viable app in this market space going forward. I can only imagine that you’re going to lose countless users if this persists.
by jonathankhay on 2019/04/18 18:59
Why did all my matched delete ?
Can’t even create a f’ing account
by lookingfor9999women on 2019/04/18 18:04
Tried with my phone number. Tinder sent me a message with a code. Code didn’t work!!! What the heck Tinder!!! Get your stuff together!!!
Profile Gone?!?
by Jade.Jadore on 2019/04/18 17:36
Tried to login and my profile is gone, they don’t recognize my Facebook account wanting me to create a new profile?!? Was a Gold subscription. Guess it’s time to delete this app.
False Advertising/Glitchy
by mikhaylaaaaa on 2019/04/18 16:20
I’d give the app 5 stars if it didn’t ‘dislike’ people I undoubtedly swiped right. This has happened twice now. The first time it happened I opted into getting Tinder gold because it implied that I would have the opportunity to get my match back. However, that was not the case. Yes, I was able to “rewind” once I got the premium version, but it didn’t allow me to match with the one person I had set out to. (Maybe it varies from person to person.) The tell: I noticed both times because the app takes a moment to catch up with itself. There’s an obvious pause after you swipe right. I imagine that if you stuck with clicking the heart as opposed to swiping that you could avoid this scenario for yourself altogether, but when I think of Tinder I think “swipe right” (to show interest, etc), hence why I do that. It’s also just muscle memory at this point. It makes me wonder how many people I thought I swiped right only to have them auto-disliked. (And I’m definitely swiping right (towards the middle), not down, not up, not left whatsoever.) The pros: I’ve met a lot of amazing people on Tinder that I may not have gotten the opportunity to otherwise. It’s worth the download, just be conscious. Tinder plus pros: I didn’t see how much better the premium version could be, but it was just that, better. Is it worth the subscription? I couldn’t tell you. But it’s a lot of extra fun.
I wanna see my feed!
by tor34tor on 2019/04/18 16:12
Great stuff y’all are doing! Wanted to review to ask about seeing your own updates that get posted on others’ feed. I’ll realize I’ve got my shared content on after making adjustments to my profile that I decided to change later. It would be nice to see what I’m “posting” and have the option to delete them later. Thanks guys!
Paid for TinderPlus No Refund
by College guy40205 on 2019/04/18 15:42
Was banned for no reason
Horrible App
by Lhern1117 on 2019/04/18 13:50
So i wasn’t having much luck on the app and stopped using it never really chatted with anyone. It’s been almost two years since I’ve used the app and realized I still had it on my phone. I tried logging in only to be told I was banned confused I emailed them and was told I broke the terms of use but they couldn’t tell me which one or why. I literally never used the app so yeah this app is trash. I’ve seen a couple of other guys post the same thing so this is a recurring thing.
by brookolyn_ on 2019/04/18 13:19
I had been a loyal user of tinder for 3 years. I knew the ins and outs of that app, the rules, and used it to meet some really good friends. I was in the midst of making plans with one guy whom I was pretty interested in, but opened the app to being banned. I went and reread all the policies, guidelines, and terms of use, and surprisingly found the banned section explains only activity I was not taking part in. I reached out to their customer service to ask why I was banned to just take a further look into my account, in which they don’t accept appeals of banning, and the only “help” I received was a message saying the exact same thing that the page that told me I was banned said; and personally signed by Emily. Yet the email was not personal and a few minutes after I responded I received another email saying my “helper” has closed the case and to rate her. Really disappointed with not only the banning, but with the customer service.
i’m banned
by Meadow lachinski on 2019/04/18 12:16
back in the day when i was not old enough to use this app i was banned but i’m finally 18 and i can’t use it. what can i do to change this??
Deletes your stuff
by ndjwidnamao on 2019/04/18 12:03
I’ve been using this app for 1wk and I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall at least 5 times because after a day my messages disappear and when I re-download they all come back and I have a bunch of unread ones. Super glitchy.
Not Worth It
by Infin 35 on 2019/04/18 11:35
Tinder has become so bad, you have to pay for it now? That’s ridiculous, definitely not worth it.
Payed money, got banned, don’t know why
by Mike Pettitt on 2019/04/18 10:50
This app will take your money and ban you and not tell you why. I can’t think of any reason why I was banned. I have no idea why i got banned and it seems to be a thing that happens to alot of ppl on this app.
by Sammyboy56 on 2019/04/18 10:22
Won’t let me add any new pictures when I only have 2
Gold is a scam
by BigBoost240 on 2019/04/18 09:30
The free version of the app was fine, but the app kept notifying me that I was getting likes, I got up to 45 likes before I purchased gold to see who had liked me. 99% of my “likes” were girls that lived over 5,000 miles away, probably not even real accounts considering there’s no way someone over 5,000 miles away would be seeing my profile, and I have my distance set to 50 miles. So basically don’t buy gold, it’s a scam.
Like everyone else banned
by gabe2373 on 2019/04/18 09:14
So I’ve been reading these reviews before I decided to write my own. I come to find out especially more recently and like myself, have been falsely banned. How I can tell it’s false is because my best friend who just created a profile only 3 days prior to being banned, she doesn’t talk to anyone but swipe. Tinder, fix yourself.
Needs work
by Miike Wazowskii on 2019/04/18 08:08
Left swipe are now counting as right swipes. Can’t swipe left on someone if our of right swipes.
Great service, mediocre app
by chrisnotkris on 2019/04/18 06:09
Tinder has everything you need to be a great tool for dating. It has plenty of features that help you connect with people beyond just physical attraction, and also has features that keep users safe. It has everything, except for a good app. The Spotify connection is an amazing idea in theory, but in practice, it’s very inaccurate. Artists that I either haven’t listened to in months or that I have only heard a handful of times often end up on my top artists list. It is EXTREMELY easy to accidentally super like someone, especially when only using one hand. It makes for very awkward conversation when you match and then have to explain that it was an accident. Probably the most annoying thing is the notification bubble. It just doesn’t go away. Even when there’s no unread messages and no new matches, the app on the home screen will still have a notification symbol and sometimes the app will even have a symbol that indicates a new message when you open it, but once you go to messages, it disappears and then reappears when you go back to the main screen. This will usually go away once you force close it a few times, but sometimes it’ll stay like that for days on end. While it’s a minor inconvenience, it’s just so annoying. Overall, I will probably continue using the app, but on a limited basis. I’d recommend using it to match with someone then give them another social media account for them to contact you so that you’re not on the app for long.
Tinder Gold felt like a Scam
by (remove this) on 2019/04/18 05:05
Bought tinder gold to see who liked me. Got half my likes from people past my set range.
Good app but let me listen to my music!
by DavinoOmega on 2019/04/18 03:47
Everything is all good until a ad pops up and then the app turns off my music and every time I turn it back on, the app turns it back off.
by Eric Cardosi on 2019/04/18 02:14
Try to find new girlfriend. They don’t want me. Because I’m deaf by the way...
New Algorithm seems to only look for Money
by Warriorlaxrocks on 2019/04/18 01:17
The new algorithm seems to intentional not let you swipe on people that have swiped on you, but show you that you have a certain number of people that have swiped that way you’ll want to buy the membership. I have 48 that have swiped on me, but have come across basically none of them.
Waste of time and I wasted my money
by TaterJD on 2019/04/18 00:52
I pay to get more swipes extend my location to meet new people around my grandparents neighborhood. I get plenty of matches don’t get me wrong. It’s the fact that you match with girls and they don’t message you back. I just say “hey” and nothing. Waste of my time. Don’t pay extra either. I’ll never get my money back.
Like throttling
by Yupphfxgnmdhiubg on 2019/04/18 00:32
I’ve shown that I have numerous people liking me, but never match. The number of likes has never gone down. That means they have completely blocked those people from coming through my dashboard. Been swiping for a couple of weeks now to no avail.
Tinder locking matches behind a paywall
by Hdhdhshsudbkgh on 2019/04/17 23:51
Don’t get me wrong, I get that they need to make money, but locking certain matches behind a paywall is just a major turn off for the app, i find myself wanting to delete it in frustration, please remove that stupid feature.

Language translation
by Mad Caddy on 2019/04/17 18:24
The app is wonderful. The only thing I would ask is that you give the option to copy text. When translating non-English languages, it makes it easier to copy and paste the text into a translation app for much needed assistance. Not all of us are language experts you know...
Banned for no reason at all
by keke_29 on 2019/04/17 17:29
I am a honest person I have no reason to lie or do anything against your terms and policies. One day out of nowhere I wasn’t able to sign in to this app. I deleted the app for awhile thinking it was a glitch but little to my surprise I had been banned without any explanation of why! All it says is you was banned because we found something that was against our app policy but they never told me what it was so that I can go back and change it! Believe me if I did something that was against policy I did it unknowingly because like I say I try to live an honest life style I don’t cut corners or bend the rules so being banned for me was insulting and like a slap in the face! So whoever is reading my review make sure u read all the terms and policies before signing up because Tinder don’t give second chances.
Greedy scumbags
by Long-time user 1 on 2019/04/17 17:04
After purchasing Tinder Plus and using for 2 months out of the 6 I pre-paid, Tinder decides to ban my account for no reason. When asked, they say "we take our terms and conditions seriously" but again, would not provide any REASON for banning me. I haven't violated a single one of these terms & conditions (I know because I read them all). Would not refund the money I had spent and Apple was no help either. Seems like Tinder can simply take your money, ban your account without just cause and keep the proceeds without providing any service. Seems unethical and essentially robbing their clients without so much as a simple justification. I won't be using this app ever again and hope none of you folks pay for the upgrade either.
Blindly banned
by nickizelle on 2019/04/17 15:37
I downloaded tinder, set up my profile, did a little bit of swiping. A few days later I opened it to find that my account was permanently banned for violating terms of service. Mind you, I didn’t speak to anyone and my profile was empty save for a modest selfie. I was completely confused about why I was banned having only used the app for a total of 8 minutes. I reached out to support wondering what on earth I could have done in a short amount of time to warrant permanently banning me from the app. All I got back was a very obviously copy and paste reply that told me no new information. I can’t appreciate an app that bans people with no explanation and has an “it is what it is” attitude about it.
Trouble downloading
by jukie97 on 2019/04/17 15:35
I’m trying redownload this app. But my system (iPhone 8) wont let me.
Costs $ To Swipe "No"
by why do i need a review name on 2019/04/17 15:10
In the most recent update Tinder has now added the "Nope" swipe to your daily limit and expects you to pay for more "No" swipes lmaooo
Personal playlists
by charlie6644 on 2019/04/17 12:21
I like the layout for spotifys picks and my anthem, but not everyone uses the same music app, if there was just a box location where you could drop links to your personal playlists for any platform i feel like it would be much more versatile instead of making it spotify exclusive... this is only important to me because i see music interests as a huge make or break type deal.
Holds your matches hostage unless you pay
by Sorrycuse on 2019/04/17 12:17
I use all my swipes almost everyday I’m lucky if I match with one person but it’s not me says I have 49+ matches and “you can skip them to the front if you pay” so now I’m debating on paying to see if it’s all adds like I think it is. But anyways enjoy this 2 star review guys I might change in future I might not the world may never kno 🤷🏻‍♂️
Don’t show you who has liked you so you’ll pay for extra services
by reic3638 on 2019/04/17 12:14
Tinder used to show you people who had swiped right on you first so you’d match with them, now they just either lie about the number of people who have swiped right on you or keep the matches from you so you pay for their extra stuff. It literally says I have 90 people (probably a lot of bots) who have swiped right and I get 0-2 matches when I use it.
by 123456 shake on 2019/04/17 09:59
The app was free, even when you ran out of like ford the day you could still swipe no an continue to see other people, now if you run out of likes you can’t even continue swiping no. Smh tinder is only trying to make you pay for full details.. smh the app downgraded big time

Bad service.
by Samminix on 2019/04/17 06:22
I literally got banned for a Halloween photoshoot photo that’s been on my profile for 2 years... and there’s no customer service to talk to to fix it.. stupid.
Update ruined the top picks
by R Y /\ N on 2019/04/17 04:19
I used to be able to purchase more top picks, which I liked and did a lot of because I find the girls that come up there to be more attractive compared to the average that comes up on my normal feed. Ever since the recent update, it just says there are no top picks available for me. I’ve changed my location, I’ve tried switching my discovery parameters, I even set the age range 18-100 and the distance to 100 miles, and still just says none available. Please fix this or I plan to cancel my paid membership if I can’t use the main feature that I signed up for in the first place.
So so
by vinn_86 on 2019/04/17 04:01
In my experience, out of all the matches you get about 50% of the females will reply, about 30% will actually hold a decent conversation, and about 5% are actually up for a date. Has a lot of the so called “Instagram models” on this app just to promote their Instagram and they’ll say either they are never on the tinder app and to add and message them on their Instagram or simply link their Instagram. I could go on to mention more negative trends with this app but instead I’ll end it by saying that there are very few decent people on the app and it’s really like fishing to find them and that’s the most positive thing I can say about tinder.
I was replaced by a right swipe
by combatptsd on 2019/04/17 03:25
Ex gf replaced me by a right swipe. Then she says she wants couples therapy while still on tinder. What a load of crap. Take your dog out of my house Courtney Clingan.
by sammmama on 2019/04/17 02:41
App is always crashing
by sherldog on 2019/04/17 02:25
It’s clear that tinder is limiting the number of matches a person gets to try to sell more gold subscriptions. Will not recommend.
No notifications
by Jojoe93 on 2019/04/17 02:03
I never got notified of new matches wth I thought I set tinder to notify of my matches

Doesn’t play nice with Spotify
by Alcool91 on 2019/04/17 01:04
I like to listen to music and mindlessly swipe on tinder, but recently tinder has started repeatedly pausing my music while I am swiping. This is a major inconvenience.
Literally the worst shxt ever
by tikalbozeman on 2019/04/17 00:53
Tinder Gold hypes up all these “hidden matches” that are actually just spam-bots. I want my money back.
Cool app but randomly banned?
by Masoooooooo10101n on 2019/04/17 00:49
I don’t think I did anything wrong. 🧐 I wasn’t given a reason for the ban either... Is there anywhere I can get help? Met some cool people, and I’d like to continue using the app :/ Being this is the most popular dating app, I’d really like to get access back. What do I do?
by BlackSapper on 2019/04/17 00:38
Tinder is a complete fraud right now. It says I currently have 28 likes, but no matter how many people I swipe through, that number never decreases, meaning they are withholding these likes unless I decide to pay $30 a month. Also the number of fake profiles is way too high. Guess I’ll be moving to one of the other apps instead.
by Rtroboughmat on 2019/04/17 00:15
How can you run a business and ban people while still creating an account? And then when contacted, I’m told nothing other then you are banned and we won’t change that. What did I do other then try to use your app?!?
Started Bad, Ending Awful
by Whatthepok on 2019/04/16 23:09
There have always been bots on this app and schemes to make you pay money, however since the introduction of gold they will periodically alert you that someone swiped right and then asks you to pay to find out who. Turns out 9/10 times it’s a bit setup by Tinder that have auto responses. Tried it with multiple account and got about the same “likes” on all user despite no pictures and awful profiles. This is a scam especially for smaller areas, however maybe living in a larger city would help even though I stay in larger cities and get a lot more matches but almost an amount of bots scaled from small town to large a lot
Is okay...
by NovaHeyoka on 2019/04/16 22:42
I give 3 stars because I have actually talked to women on here. However I do have some major issues with this app. When I first began using the app I got a ton of likes and matches. I was offered half off for gold and decided I should give it a shot since the app was being so abundant for me and that 99+ icon at the top was driving my curiosity crazy. When I activated gold I swiped through my list of likes and ever since then I get virtually NO likes or matches. You would think that paying customers would get put into the stack more since you know, they’re paying. Unfortunately not the case in fact I believe it has removed me from the stack almost entirely. Also I activated my one boost for the month and it told me it showed my profile 8% more LOL! And boosts cost money. Incredible. I am not an unattractive man I might add. It’s difficult to understand the motive behind making a paying subscription worse than the free version.
terrible service.
by annastone223 on 2019/04/16 22:41
I have used this app correctly on and off for a year and this last time i went to log on it says I have been banned. I did nothing to be banned and am very unhappy with this app. so beware that you may be banned for no reason and they will not allow you to appeal it or anything. ridiculous. worst dating app.
love it!
by qtprince on 2019/04/16 22:38
i would love it more if we could send pictures through the app
Rip off
by Kennek4 on 2019/04/16 22:36
I can’t believe I just spent $30 hard earned dollars on that piece of crap app!! I can’t SEE anything, as far as who I’ve liked, or disliked, I accidentally deleted a match I wanted to contact, but swiped left(apple trained me to swipe left to go back!) tinder left swipe nukes every trace of the person!! I can’t understand why you would use a left swipe right swipe thing!!! It’s SOOOOO counter intuitive, but I could always spend MORE MONEY to be able to maybe get a few more features, but $30 should be enough! These people are making BANK off of your LONELINESS!!!!!
customer support terrible
by saveriocello on 2019/04/16 22:13
the app itself is good but the customer support is horrendous, I was banned due to accidentally putting in the wrong year for my birthday since I am Dyslexic and did not realize. They offered me no help in correcting an issue due to my condition
Lol change to one star and we get to “feedback”
by Magical_smoke on 2019/04/16 20:42
Why do you do this. Very sneaky.
by yaqui boy on 2019/04/16 19:34
With the new update prices are higher there’s fewer like for users who don’t buy into the app and now one of the only “free” dating apps . Tinder is trying too juice every dollar they can from lonely people.
Such a popular app needs improvement
by CreativiTimothy on 2019/04/16 18:25
1) add age filter strict. It only allows 4 age gap like 18-22 but not 18-19. Very basic feature 2) add ethnicity filter with a checkbox style 3) ADD WATCHING VIDEO ADS to obtain some items or see 1 person who swiped right on you. A lot of college students are poor, so help us out. Thanks 4) [optional] add a key word filter. For example, it will show up all profiles that contain the word “dance”
by peaches8619 on 2019/04/16 16:32
My messages are all scrambled up they going under the wrong person. Once I reinstalled the app the problem goes away but I should not have to keep doing this

They banned me for no reason after I purchased Tinder plus. Don’t buy the Gold version because they’ll ban you and take your money with no remorse. What kind of company bans people with no explanation for life? Pretty wild how that’s aloud. At least I’m out of that herpe ses pool called “tinder” 😂
still swiping
by kblakec on 2019/04/16 13:33
I have been enjoying my tinder experience, and the layout/user interface aspect of the app is great. However, I cannot seem to find a way to contact a real person for support issues through the app. My app freezes a lot, even though I update regularly and nothing else on my phone has an issue. I also think there really needs to be a better way for tinder gold users to swipe through their list of likes.... after you start getting a lot it takes ages to swipe through to the bottom of the list. Very inefficient. Otherwise I am a happy swiper!
by anon5434 on 2019/04/16 12:57
They need to fix this mess. It keeps logging me out and changing my information. Then it’s hard to log back in
Messages Keep Disappearing
by redsteelpsycho on 2019/04/16 12:36
I keep getting notifications of people messaging me and when I click on the notification, there’s not a single message from them on the app and they disappear. I doubt they would unmatch with me within a few minutes, and this has happened several times. Please fix this issue.
Too many fake profiles
by boofitanditsfree on 2019/04/16 11:51
Well if you want to pay for the premium tinder I guess it’s worth it but having a swipe limit is lame especially when there are tons of fake profiles on here that trick you into using your valuable swipes.
Very disappointed
by NikitaEsin1995 on 2019/04/16 07:52
Has anyone noticed how racist the app is? Especially the “Top Pick” category with the same type of white person over and over again. Very sad.
Down hill
by BabyJake16 on 2019/04/16 07:44
Going down hill. And fast. I remember when tinder first came out, it was awesome. People met people. Now with tinders algorithms, you don’t really match unless you pay. Obviously it’s a business, but it looks like they’re grabbing for money now and worried about the future due to wanting to charge for everything. They just added in a new feature where you only have a certain amount of left swipes you get every 12 hours. Very disappointed in this app and saddened to watch it go the way it has. But it happens
They will charge each month even you delete account
by Jokeralex1991 on 2019/04/16 07:18
They will charge you each month even you delete your account!! Make sure you cancel your subscription!! Very bad Tinder
by carroindamix on 2019/04/16 05:18
I can’t see my like anymore! Usually when u get matches the app shows u those girls sooner or later... 20+ matches later till me y I STILL haven’t seen or swiped on one 😐 fix this plz
Going bad
by dcbvv on 2019/04/16 03:59
Before on the free version you could at least swipe left when you run out of swipes. Now you gotta wait all 12hrs for both. Well that’s some serious marketing all of a sudden
Met the Love of my life
by Country chick yeah on 2019/04/16 03:44
All i can say was this was an experience!!!! Tinder you are amazing. This first started off as a joke to see which one of me and 2 of my friends could rack up the most connections over the course of a couple of days. Well, needless to say i connected with the man of my dreams and we are still together 2 years later!!!! Thank you tinder for your laughs, your support and most importantly the creation of this app. Without this, i fully believe i would not have met the LOML !!
Way to many bots that don’t respond
by GiggityGiggity123 on 2019/04/16 02:29
all I ever match with is bots that don’t ever answer
by Had2doitt5692 on 2019/04/16 02:07
WHATEVER YOU DO, DON’T EVER GIVE TINDER OR APPLE YOUR CREDIT CARD FOR THE “UPGRADES”!! It’s embarrassing how lackadaisical apple is when it comes to support for refunding when I didn’t even use the app for a year (nor have it)! I (stupidly) paid for the $9.99 upgrade over a year ago, quit my subscription & deleted this app yet somehow I continued to be charged every month for it. I reached out to apple and tinder only to be disregarded. I’m about to change my credit card so apple or tinder can’t try to dip their hands in my pockets anymore. F**cking ridiculous. Ask yourself if the juice is worth the squeeze before even downloading this crap app.
cool at first
by Jayyythepatriotsfan on 2019/04/16 01:44
these new prices are ridiculous
Accidental Purchase
by HAH3398 on 2019/04/16 01:11
I accidentally tapped something I shouldn’t have while watching tv with the app opened and when I looked back at my phone, it was asking for my finger print. I thought it was a verification or something so I did it. Then it said purchase verified. Is there anything I can do to undo this and get a refund?
by The Lando Express on 2019/04/15 23:59
Thank you, Tinder.
by hannahinaz on 2019/04/15 23:58
When I upload my messages it only uploads last three and it puts the wrong name of the person. Like I think I’m talking to Paul when it’s actually Michael. I’ve updated and uninstalled and reinstalled. I have over 19 unread messages I literally can’t check.
Constant freezing and glitches
by peen__ on 2019/04/15 23:52
The app itself is great but it keeps freezing! Idk how to fix it. Never had this issue.
Remake it and try again
by Dukedkg on 2019/04/15 23:00
This app is no longer good. I keep getting matches with people 5k miles away. Like what the hell. Then I never see anybody from my America
Don’t waste your time. TERRIBLE app.
by Dansks eksmajkdsmkdksbaj on 2019/04/15 22:45
ZERO STAR!!! Don’t waste your time on this, 75% of the profiles are fake, it’s so bad it’ll sometimes log you out automatically like it did to me and. Now when I try to log in it comes with an error message! This app is just a waste of time. Will not recommend to anyone! Can’t even log in. This app deserves zero stars!!!! Do not get this app!!!! It’s a scam!!
by Lil kid cudi on 2019/04/15 22:29
Been blocked without any reason and I had gold this is terrible
Good but message error
by TuEresUnPendejo on 2019/04/15 22:13
I was messaging a person and all of a sudden when i received a message I clicked on it from my notifications it sent me to the person who I was messaging and it was completely blank it only showed the 3 dots of him typing. And the. I went back to the main page and came back to the message board he disappeared. It’s been 2 days since I last saw his message and today I get a notification that he send another message? During the 2 days I was messaging someone new and the messages were stuck below where it shows “people who have liked me” where the tab of people who matched with you but hasn’t messaged you yet. Please fix this issue, I don’t want to give them my snap or additional info unless I want to get to know them more.
by No update please! on 2019/04/15 21:21
haven’t been able to upload photos or rearrange them for the longest time, fix the app already Jesus, it’s become garbage nowadays
Love tinder but banned
by zxcvbnmnbvccz on 2019/04/15 21:01
I love tinder but for the past year I’ve had a gf. The problem is a friend ask to use my number because his tinder had an error. I let him use my number to set it up and it got banned. I thought it was a problem with his outdated phone. I didn’t realize that error meant he banned his account and I wouldn’t have given my number if I knew it be banned. I would like a second chance tinder team help me out.
Not worth it
by MusicLover5900 on 2019/04/15 20:59
They banned me after I put my Venmo in my bio (it’s in the Community Guidelines, but I did it as a joke). I tried to contact support but they only give the same stock answer. There’s some kind of double standard against men because women can break the community guidelines and not get in trouble. Also, don’t use a dating app to find love, go out and actually talk to people.
Copy text out matches bios
by Bwild202 on 2019/04/15 20:58
please add the feature to select and copy text from matches bio
What a joke!
by JessetheKelly on 2019/04/15 19:09
EVERYTHING costs money on this, they use fake profiles to lure you into their service and you find out it’s a con game. You want to hide your age that costs money, you want to see your “likes” that costs money, they nickel and dime you with imaginary people and don’t deliver. I can’t wait until Facebook develops their dating app, pretty much everything is better than this app!
Met my wife here😍
by DeborahCF on 2019/01/15 10:56
I’ve been using the app for a total of about 2 years. I had interesting experiences with tinder. Mostly good experiences. It actually made me come out of my shell because I got to talk to people with each one having a different lifestyle. I was on and off with tinder because I was either focused on one person (though never had a real relationship with the people I met on tinder) or I was busy in college. I set my settings to interested in women, and tbh at first not much of my matches messaged me. When I played around with the app, I set it to interested in men and women. It’s a little frustrating how the men were so comfortable to chat with, but the ladies didn’t seem that interested to have a chat. I wanted to meet women, not the men. So I tried to send out the first message to all of women I matched with and take the initiative just like the guys did. It’s a good thing I did that because later on after meeting one of the girls, she told me that she was a few days away from deleting her account since no one really messaged her. She saw my message and gave it a shot to reply. She told me she was skeptical at first because I had a few pictures with photography trademarks so she thought I was catfishing her. I did tell her later on that I modeled a little... So fast forward to 10 months later, we got married😍. We were both sooo close to not have met each other.
by BJKMav on 2019/03/19 17:01
Just know that this app is mostly for entertainment purposes. If you’re a man looking for a woman there’s a lot of beautiful women on here. Well pictures of them anyway. The woman in the picture didn’t make that profile and there’s a 99.9% chance she lives nowhere near you. Then there’s the ones who put their cashapp on here. I’m sure you can send you’re entire life savings to that cash app and never meet this person. Then you’ve got the ones who put their Instagram and Snapchat on here. They don’t want to meet you, they just want to get their followers up. Also some of those are fake/scam Instagram and Snapchat accounts too. When you do actually match with someone be prepared to message first. Be prepared to not receive a reply as well. If you do match, message and get a reply be ready to talk a bit and when you ask them out they unmatched and disappear into the ether. I know I’m not Brad Pitt but I also don’t consider myself ugly. Just so those reading this don’t automatically think that’s the case. I have met a few people on here so it’s not a total failure but as I started out with I use this app for entertainment purposes now. It’s become fun to see how stupid and how many fake profiles there are. Also I live in Houston, the fourth largest city in the US. So one would think they wouldn’t have to populate this app with so many fakes to draw you in, they do though. So happy swiping and I hope this app brings you as many laughs as it does me.
Tinder discriminates! Used to be the BEST, but now it’s honestly the worst
by NotAFan0001 on 2017/11/01 15:11
Tinder used to annihilate the competition — so much so that I purchased the premium service numerous times, primarily to communicate my appreciation for their inclusiveness! As I wrote to their customer service department, not all of us fit into a “neat little box,” and Tinder used to not only understand that...they also supported it and encouraged diversity (even if some closed-minded members reported profiles). Suddenly, though, I have been outright banned from the app several times, for reasons that are ANYTHING but consistent among other users. I was told that some private messaging language between me and other members was “sexual” (umm, hello, it’s a HOOKUP app — so sexual discussions are status quo...and this is a big part of what makes Tinder so popular!) and that’s the reason I got banned. So I created a new profile, carefully avoided writing anything sexual, but guess what? Boom: banned again. And again. Ad nauseum. If users aren’t interested in a profile, all they have to do is swipe left; but there are many users I’ve connected with who ARE interested/intrigued, proving that there is a place on the app for profiles like mine. Make this right, Tinder! Stop discriminating and allow me (and many others) to once again enjoy the excitement of new interactions and connections.
Tinder plus is not at all as I thought 👎
by Xamor101 on 2018/08/09 23:03
When looking at what you’re capable of doing if you pick up tinder plus, the main attraction to me was how it said you would be capable of rewinding your left swipes. Therefore I assumed I would be able to go back through them in a list, somewhat like my matches page, but it’s everyone (including all the bots) I swiped left on. However that was not the case when I went to the rewind button 🙄😡 and in fact it doesn’t even work all the time - I’ll explain how. You can ONLY rewind the person you JUST swiped left on, nothing more. And not only that, but say you accidentally swipe left on someone then immediately get a phone call before you hit the rewind button. If you take the phone call, talk with whoever, then after hanging up go to send a few texts/msgs via whatever means, then do whatever else and return afterwards to tinder and remember that you meant to undo your left swipe. Most of the time the rewind button will be faded (unavailable) because since you temporarily left the app it will have completely forgotten the individual you accidentally swiped on, completely negating the purpose of the rewind button 🙄 The cherry on top of it all is that, yes, it’s $2.75 a month or whatever you agree to before taxes, however you pay for those months all at once! They don’t wait and charge you the small amount month by month like a real subscription fee 👎
by Xanderellahaylea on 2018/03/02 20:24
Tinder, in my experience is the best “dating” app on the market. I have tried them all. If you’re will to pay for it, it gets that much better. I believe I purchased the six-month upgraded package or whatever they offer for $20, I was highly impressed. You get five super like a day which nine times out of 10 guarantee you a match, or at least with me they did. I think it also gives you two boosts a month? Those are like gold, use a boost and they usually got 50 to 100 matches. Tinder is average compared to other apps when it comes to quality of matches, in my opinion, it’s the most widely used, and average App on the market, I think in society, it can and has been holding a certain reputation as a hook up app. I think that is true, but there are quite a few women that use it to look for relationship. When compared to bumble, I think that tinder is the second best option out there for quality of hook ups. The only real issue I have with Tinder, is the fake profiles, there are so many of them, usually can tell by the quality of picture, and the description/biography written by the opposing person. I would suggest reporting this as often as possible to eliminate as much of the spam users as possible. Whether it’s a relationship, or a hook up, or even just friends, tenders my go to app. 8.5 out of 10 stars
Met my Girlfriend on Tinder!!
by TyBoyMakesNoise on 2019/01/04 03:25
I’ve been using tinder for a 1.5 years and over time accrued about 2,000 matches. (Not to sound cocky because I am NOT boasting just encouraging other men to give it a chance) I had met and dated a handful of women on this app but never amounted to anything. Also had hundreds of conversations with women and even though most of them didn’t go anywhere (either I lost track of them or they quit responding) it was still such a great experience to get practice talking to women and going through trial and error. I also spent quite a good amount of time fine tuning my profile with awesome pictures and a unique and eye catching bio. I’m a good looking guy but I’m no 10. Lol. After a while I quit “trying” and just swiped for fun and ended up striking up a convo with a woman who is now my girlfriend and she’s amazing! (It always happens when you least expect it!) I swear, that is the most true statement ever! It’s a great app when used correctly. And USE BOOST. Buy 25 of them and use them once a day and I promise you’ll have some amazing success. Thank you Tinder for being so awesome. Also, I have to add, that we all really wish you would do something about all the fake accounts. I always reported them. But for current Tinder user’s sake, you guys should invest in resolving the fake account issues. Thank you Tinder luh you.
Met My Husband
by Makayla L. H. on 2018/12/31 08:37
I can’t sincerely say I didn’t expect much out of this app when I first downloaded it almost three years ago, I thought I’d have a few meaningless and empty conversations and inevitably end up deleting the app and resorting to more traditional ways of meeting someone. On the first day I download it, I matched with someone named Tyler. I’d just gotten out of a crazy and abusive relationship, and my self confidence was all but destroyed. So when I matched with a crazy attractive man I kind of pushed him off, expecting that he was only looking for a hook up. Two months down the road and he was still messaging me. One night I got a little tipsy so I started engaging further in conversation with him. He asked me on a date and it went amazing and I had more chemistry with him than I’d ever had with anyone. He’d just moved to GA from CA and had the same fire, drive, and passion that I have about numerous subjects. Days turned to months and now it’s been over two years. We have a four month old son, are getting married next month, and we own a home together. We’ve traveled and seen places we never even dreamed that we would be able to see together. I truly found my other half on tinder. Because of this app I have a beautiful son and an amazing fiancé.
Found a keeper!
by katieeeeteel on 2018/10/02 04:40
I met my boyfriend through Tinder! We both actually weren’t taking the app seriously. I was just on it to kill time usually. I didn’t really meet anyone through the app in person. My boyfriend had actually watched a video with his friend where two guys switched Tinder accounts, so they got on and decided to do that for the fun of it. When I swiped right on my boyfriends account, it was actually his friend I first talked to! (he always jokes saying he catfished me) After just a short conversation, I added the real guy on snapchat. Anytime I got some guys snapchat, I never sent the first snap but this time I did! We ended up talking all night and then the next day he stopped by the coffee shop I was working at so we could meet. The day after that, we hung out and we have spent almost every day together since then! We’ve been dating for a year and a half now. I’m so thankful I came across him on this app. I had no idea anything like this would come from a dating app that usually isn’t taken seriously. He gave me his mom’s promise ring that his dad gave her. You know when people say you just know when you found the one? Well I know! I try to encourage people to give the app a shot. You never know who else could be on there!
Waste of money and time
by musicgeek2018 on 2018/11/12 22:45
Don’t bother getting this app. Lots of people praise this app for finding the one guy/girl that they’ve been looking for, but I never have found the one for me when I used this app.. i don’t know if it’s just the location of where I am (I live in Indiana) or what.. lots of girls that I tried to talk to were just a bunch of smartasses and that when I was doing things formally, you know, get to know them better and such, that they were disappointed in me and didn’t want to talk to me anymore.. I’m not sure what exactly they were disappointed in.. I’m being real right now, I’m a very nice honest and understanding guy.. I might not be popular or do sports, in which that might be why I’ve struggled to find the right one on tinder.. in fact that’s a lot of girls these days, but I’m guessing these girls that I’ve tried talking too wanted someone who wanted to have sex with them.. I’m sorry but I was taught to wait until marriage, and I’ll continue to stand by it.. but anyways Tinder was a big waste of time and money for me.. if you’re an honest caring nice guy/gal but you’re not popular want sex or do sports, you’ll struggle to find the one. If you do sports, popular and want sex with random strangers, this app is just for you.. I’m not denying that I won’t find the right one, but this app has not helped me nor will it ever help me.. people just need to learn some respect and be real instead of being fake and lying..
I was catfished!!!!
by on 2019/01/26 20:03
So I matched with a relatively good looking girl on tinder. We started messaging each other and we started talking about really cool stuff. For a while things were fine and one day I asked for her Instagram just to see what type of of person she was but she replied with, “I don’t have social media.” I messaged my best friend about her and telling him that I met this girl over tinder and showed him a picture. He tells me all about her. Not only did she have Instagram, Snapchat, and all platforms of social media, but she also had a kid. I’m almost 20, don’t need no kid! Well I thought I would pass the whole lie to let her confess and I try to make a first date to finally see if she was who she said she was.(don’t worry I was planning to take a friend for backup had anything been sketchy). Sadly, she begins to make excuses for the two times I asked her, some might say 2 was too many times, but I like to give people the benefit of the doubt... well it’s been less than a day, obviously she unmatched with me before I got the chance which made it hard to report him or her... still don’t know who it was:( with this experience I think tinder should fix there reporting system so that even after you can report for occurrences like this because I’m willing to bet catfishes always unmatch very quick to keep their account up and running.
Absolutely Horrible
by Kieraxoxoxox on 2019/02/06 19:47
I hate to write negative reviews. I’m almost 20 I went on Tinder to try to find friends near me to hang out with. I was bored. At first it was ok. Guys were nice but, Tinder is more like an dating app. I wish I had never even been on Tinder. It caused a lot of anxiety for me. It was overwhelming because guys would send me messages. It was hard to find guys around my age. I’ve learned it’s better to hangout with people around my age. Then I started changing my bio on my account too much. I guess a guy I didn’t know noticed. He made a depressing comment I thought nothing of it at first. I then found someone else I could actually connect to on Tinder then Snapchat. Then we started texting every day. At first it was nice texts then I started feeling overwhelmed I couldn’t tell whether he was just being nice or just wanting to date. This person was 21 or 22 I believe. So I would just kill time using Tinder I still didn’t have a lot to do at that point. I think Tinder should really be banned. It’s unsafe and far better to meet someone you are most close to in person. I ended up getting in an argument over text and deleted everything all social media. I’ve dealt with so much bullying online and person it isn’t even funny. I wish guys weren’t so judgmental. I don’t think I’m hot im depressed and needed something to do. Obviously Tinder isn’t the place. Lesson learned hopefully someone looks at this review thinking about using Tinder. Don’t it’s not worth it.
It’s ok? I guess?
by mshugg on 2018/10/26 05:20
Over the past 5-6 months of being on the app, I’ve met only...1 friend. I’ve met a few people that only lasted for 3-5 days of talking and that’s it. I met one girl and we met in real life, but turned out she wasn’t really what I liked. I did want a friend with benefits, guy or girl it didn’t matter. But over these months, I didn’t get that. The app is great and I’m sure other people have been successful at finding hook ups, relationships or simple friends. But me? None. Without the subscription, you basically can swipe left or right and match with a person as well as creat your profile and chat with people. But with a subscription, you can ‘Super Like’ a person and see who ‘Liked’ you without you even swiping right or left on that person. But about 95% of the people I see on there are muscular, toned, beautiful, college, beer and weed loving guys. Girls? A bunch of cute skinny girls on there with nice bodies and an attractive face. I’ve seen some cute chunky people on there, and some in between. But majority are attractive people, which I know I have no chance of hooking up with. I’m not ugly, I know that for sure, but I’m sure no toned guy would go for a thick girl like me XD. Get the app and try it out, maybe you’ll have better results. But overall it’s an app I’ll spend on for about an hour and a way to pass the time.
Extremely Poor Customer Service
by DeeTeach on 2019/03/09 22:02
I joined tinder and a week later I decided to pay to use the gold features. A few days later, my app got deleted and I was unable to sign on and use the features that I paid for. I wrote to customer service and they responded and asked me to send a screenshot of the error message. I sent it to them and I never heard back. I wrote them eight times after that. I have not received one response. I tried calling the number that they leave for customer service and I get a beeping sound as if it were a fax number. I wrote to them again. No response. They are receiving my emails, because I every time I write, I get an automated email stating that they have received my message and will get back to me as soon as possible. I finally rejoined and about a week later, I was booted again. I wrote them again stating that they’ve never responded to me, nor have I received the service that I paid for, and that I’ve written to them about eight times. I still have not received a response. Normally I would have just moved on and chalked it up to a very poor app and an extremely poor customer service, but I made connections and I wanted to speak to the people I was speaking with. I’m extremely upset and disappointed, not to mention out the Gold fee. I suggest you do not get on this site and make connections, only to have your account suddenly disappear and never get assistance nor a response from customer service.

So I matched with a girl months back, we talked briefly, conversations about school and random stuff when I was bored then I just stopped talking to her. Added her on Instagram where she later posted some racist stuff to her story. I replied to the story asking why she would actively make fun of a people group like that. She panicked, deleted all of her side of the Instagram conversations, and posted the remaining conversation (just me) for a brief second, to make it look like I was sending her messages that she hadn't responded to and posted my account all over her story. Clever girl, I guess. When I asked her why she did that, and that we had actually talked for a couple weeks on tinder, (which I immediately saved now knowing she’s like that) and that I was just asking why she did put me on blast like that. She panicked and reported me as some sort of predator or something to tinder. But like I said, I had already saved everything. But now I’m permanently band from tinder? Because someone lied and I have the full message history of her discussing it to prove it? And there is officially no way to unban my account. I don’t care about that girl, I just want access to the other girl I had just started talking to. Be advised, someone can permanently ban you instantly over anything with no accountability on tinder’s part. I’m considering pursuing legal action which will inadvertently involve tinder who clearly deletes evidence involving claims of “sexual predation”.
would give ZERO stars if I could
by Ad enjoy on 2019/01/18 14:26
I usually NEVER leave reviews but today I will. I used to love this app. I used it all of the time. I’ve used it for years now. I went to log into my account today to be told that my account was banned for good for violating terms of service. I even went back and read their terms of service and I can say with 100% certainty that I have not violated any of them EVER in my time of using their app. When emailing Tinder about it, they refused to look into it or even tell me why I was banned. They simply told me I can never make another Tinder account and they will not appeal it. But they will not even give me an explanation as to WHY the banned me in the first place. I have never posted anything nude or cussed at or harassed people. The tinder “help email” just keeps repeating in different ways that I am banned. This is absolutely ridiculous. After doing some research online it’s not just me. There are several other people who have been banned for no reason, and refused an explanation. Tinder does not at all care about their customers or resolving issues with their app. I can only assume I’ve been banned because maybe somebody reported me, but there would have been no actual reason that they should have, such as harassment or nudity or vulgarity. If that is the case, it is ridiculous Tinder would ban an account over a report, and not check into it themselves, because I have done absolutely nothing wrong.
More of a social experiment than a dating app
by TeddyBrÓsevelt on 2018/10/11 13:37
I have been on this for a while and have observed at this appears to be more of a social experiment an actual dating site. I have put money into the service just to see what will happen and I’ve learned that it’s really not worth it at all. The only thing that I have learned from the services is: you are able to learn about what ladies (from a male perspective) like about your appearance (supporting the shallow vanity of perspective), and how simple or dimwitted they are for falling for whatever cheesy one line pick up I can come up with. I would go further on a limb and say that it is highly unlikely that the majority of people on this app actually meet up with anyone. The interfacing, as it pertains to editing the profile, is horrible. With as much money that I imagine is spent on this app by customers, one would imagine that they would put more focus and making it easier to manage photos and put more than 500 characters in a bio that describes a human being seeking a Relationship of any kind. For those with iPhones... when entering information into the biography, it often tries to cancel typing and moves randomly making it difficult to edit anything. Starting a conversation with such little to go on, and terrible interfacing is difficult for even the most fluent ‘Casa Nova’.
Thank You, Tinder
by Ilove1D5 on 2018/10/09 05:05
My best friend suggested that I download Tinder. Well, she downloaded it for me and set up my profile. I was skeptical and didn’t really try. I un-downloaded it and re-downloaded it a few times. One day I was like “you know what? I’m just gonna swipe. If something happens then it happens.” I’m beyond happy that I listened to my best friend because if it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have met my amazing boyfriend. I found out that he works at a place I go to a lot so meeting him in person for the first time was so easy. He was great! We had a lot in common and held conversation easily. After going out on a couple dates, we got together. We’ve been together for over a month now and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. He is so honest, caring, and genuine. We spend so much time together, with each time being more amazing than the last. It’s hard to think how a relationship that’s so real was born on a dating app like Tinder. I didn’t think it would be possible. I thank him for swiping right on me from time to time which gets a laugh and a big hug from the both of us. Thank you, Tinder, for being the reason why my boyfriend and I met. None of this would be possible without you
Non-performant, Buggy, disappointing
by fjalkdj on 2019/02/27 07:10
I’m going to keep my review strictly from an engineering and product perspective. This app is horribly non performant. The app crashes almost every time I open it after having not used it for at least 30 minutes. The app takes a good 15 seconds to load whatever view I’m on: tinder gold matches, the main page, etc. swiping is a pain. The app frequently throttles and sometimes multiple people get swiped left at once, missing possible connections. When paging through someone’s photos, the app will freeze up, and then suddenly execute all those actions at once, it seems like at least once a quarter, a major bug is introduced that makes the app half as useful. In 2017 it was the card stacking bug. In 2018 it was the session expiration bug. Can’t wait for 2019’s garbage fire! A very tacky and unsatisfying experience all around. The app didn’t use to be like this. It used to be snappy and effective. My only guess is that the product team refused to listen to the engineers when they were told they needed to refactor their tech stack but nope! Gotta release all those features people have been _dying_ for like sending Gifs and whatever that stupid heart catapult thing was (that’s why you don’t let influencers/comedians guide product decisions!) I get it. FaceDate looms heavy. But the reason I’ll ditch tinder the moment FaceDate ramps in the US will be because of these horrible performance issues.
Not worth the trouble.
by Bosswizard on 2019/04/06 06:33
I’ve had this app for about 1 year. Yeah I got the tinder Gold. Yes I’ve met 3 girls. None of them matched their profile so I moved on. Now, it’s like a dry season cause no one is answering. Whoever does answer, they’re like 4,000-7,000 miles away. I don’t mind a drive of up to 30 miles away but, 4,000? Why is my profile even reaching that far in the first place??? Second is the surges they’ve placed. I’d give a 5% success rate and that’s being generous. You can swipe as much as you want, you can use up all the stars. In the end of those surges, maybe 1-4 girls have seen your profile...out of 300 girls. Third is the price for the membership. NOT WORTH IT. With such a scam to get results? It’s a fake, a money grab, useless. You’re better off going to a bar and meeting someone there. Flirt with a waitress or talking with a female bar tender seems more amusing than using the app. Fourth are the scam girls of 2019. The Gold diggers. If they have a cash app, PayPal, Snapchat, chances are it’ll be a fake. They don’t talk to you, they only want your money. I’m sure there’s been at least one guy who’s given enough money to the girls to buy himself a corvette or even a 3 story house. The only upside? The photos are fun to see or your bored and you have nothing to do? Swipe time. Cause you know you’ll get no one but at least you can dream.
You've changed
by AppleNicknameSystemSucks on 2018/09/08 08:20
1). I don't want to give you my phone number. You already have my Facebook. Don't act like you want my number to help me in case I forget my password. I'm a grown adult, I think I'll either remember it or take the risk of having to create a new profile if I forget. Admit to data mining if you're going to force your users. 2). You need some serious thot patrol. You've run way too many commercials created by ultra-feminists advocating men "man up" on your app that you've actually deluded your female user base into thinking Tinder is the place to meet male "only friends" who will organize and pay for non-date dates, or a place to build up self-esteem because they're too afraid to meet up or even post a photo of themselves, hiding behind half a dozen cat photos instead. How about running a few commercials advocating women "woman up"? If you're going to bash men for being direct cads or sending 🍆 as an opening line, feel free to also bash women for thinking "Hi" is an opening line that will garner a response from a guy, or that having a single profile pic of a plate of food isn't useful, or that "friends only, not looking for a bf, no ons, no fwb" is neither an appealing profile for a dating app, nor the intended purpose here. I think it says a lot that your top review is a guy talking about how he met his bible study partner here. Tinder, do you even remember who you are?
by crackerlackingnapping on 2018/01/10 08:01
I was banned back in December after having redownloaded the app for about one day. Now, you might be asking “what could you have possibly done in one day to get banned?” Well, to be honest, that’s what I’m asking myself. I did absolutely nothing wrong. I’m a female who had gotten some matches that I was interested in and having perfectly normal conversations (i.e. “how’s your day been?” Etc..) when suddenly the app stopped working, I was logged out, and couldn’t log back in: error 43-something or other. Then I received an email saying I was banned PERMANENTLY. Now obviously I emailed them what happened and only got a generic “you violate Terms of Service/Community Guidelines” to which I would respond with a “tell me exactly what I violated, I didn’t do anything wrong” and would receive the exact same email, again and again until they stopped responding. From what I understand, you’re supposed to be put under review first or receive a “warning” email, but none of this was sent to me. So now I’m banned forever, my account was deleted, and I have no clue how to rejoin. I just wanna give a shoutout to Tinder’s horrible customer service, communication, and banning algorithm. What an awful dating service. Let’s just hope someone that is in charge of tinder sees this and we can figure this out, but as of now it seems I am banned forever for literally NO REASON. This service deserves 0 stars for its unjust review system.
by E+D=<3 on 2018/08/30 01:20
I never write reviews but I would just like to throw a BIG THANK YOU to the creators of this app! When I first started my tinder journey I did run into a few lame guys/f*** boys here and there. After a few months I pretty much gave up, i deleted the app. In December all of my friends were in relationships and it was depressing, so I re-downloaded the app. When I started checking all my messages that I had missed I found myself talking to this absolutely handsome and funny guy. Our conversations went on forever! We then transitioned into texting then to calling. I was so surprised how even more funny we was on the phone!!!! I instantly felt a connection. We are so compatible it’s crazy. I was super nervous to meet him! What if he didn’t like me or didn’t think I was cute enough???? I soon resized I didn’t have anything to worry about. About 30 mins into the hangout I felt myself loosen up and not be nervous anymore. We shared the whole night laughing and getting to know each other. To this day we spend everyday laughing! He always knows how to put a smile on my face and his jokes never grow old! Thanks to tinder I am almost to the 1 year mark with the love of my life!!!
Spend $, get banned?
by alexandra.the.great on 2018/09/14 02:19
After looking through some of the other reviews, I noticed a pretty significant pattern about people (women in particular) getting banned. Seems like almost every review I read mentioned getting a trial of tinder plus or tinder gold, or even paying for the subscription, and then all of a sudden (after nothing changed on the profile/use/activity, other than the subscription), “you violated terms of agreement.” Meanwhile— before I was banned— I encountered numerous catfish, abusive/manipulative individuals, bots, bullies, scammers, etc... so how is it that those accounts are left alone, but countless people (especially women) are suddenly banned with no warning or explanation, simply for trying to use the app as it was meant to be used? 🤔 and why is it that so many of those people had also signed up for subscriptions (whether trial-offers or paid subscriptions). I understand a small percentage being reported more frequently if the profile were viewed by more users because of the subscription, but that doesn’t account for such a high number of subscribers who essentially paid money just to be banned shortly after. I’d love to see some real statistics on the matter if tinder would like to disprove my hypothesis, so if anyone actually reads this— I have a psychology degree and a passion for statistics, give me the numbers and I’ll run an analysis (even if it proves me wrong!) LBS
very buggy!
by Mirrah Le Great on 2018/09/27 06:42
I often have to close the app and reopen it again for my messages to refresh. Today I was wondering why none of the 9 guys i messaged the day before were responding. Closed app, reopened, found 10 new messages waiting. Another weird thing: i don't understand the number on the notifications pushed. It must include feed updates. Which is pretty silly if u ask me. I want updates when someone messages me not when that person i matched with five months ago updates their selfies. ANOTHER bug bug that just came up is that sometimes the preview message displays in the wrong message box (making it look like i sent a message to the wrong person) but when i open the chat it’s just the normal chat. I guess my last critique would just be that I wish there was a choose-later option. But I can get around that by closing the app and ignoring it and reopening and repeating a couple times. But it’s annoying. Sometimes when I see that pic of my co-worker i have a crush on (to come up with a possible example) i need a few days to process whether to swipe left and keep biting my tongue IRL or swipe right and suffer the potential consequences. Would be lovely to have an “ignore” option even if limited number of ignores or set asides or whatevr
by Marboleus321 on 2018/11/06 05:58
This app wasn’t as great as I thought is was! After all the years of trying to find someone in my life, even this stupid app won’t give me the right woman I want to be with! Even if I finally got a match, they still deleted me! I get stalked, faked, scammed, and rejected by lots of those I’ve matched big time with after bringing my hopes up for nothing! When I’ve finally matched with someone I thought I like, I was shocked in the best way, all happy and excited, and I thought this whole time I was finally about to have my first date until someone keeps ignoring me and unmatching me, and then it put me in the dumps! I’ve spend massive loads of money trying to draw attention as much as possible but never worked out still! I’m sorry but this pointless app will NOT help you find true love even if you try harder! It is a scam just to steal your money away! It’s a trolly app just enough to make men cry and depressed as the world crashes on them! Please, go out into the world! Go to the park, go to church, find somebody in town to meet in person! That’s how it all works! Using an app on your touchscreen technology devise, does NOT work that way ever! Just saying! It never worked for me. But SOMEDAY, I mean SOMEDAY!!!! SOMEDAY I WILL FINALLY FIND SOMEONE TO TAKE ON A DATE!!!! I WILL BE THE BEST BOYFRIEND OR ROMEO TO ANYONE WHO WOULD JUST SIMPLY SAY “YES” TO ME!!! I WILL FINALLY HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY! AND THATS A PROMISE!!!! Nuff said......
Accessibility problems and lack of response
by Marconiusiii on 2018/08/09 15:24
Blind people want to use Tinder too, but they've made it quite frustrating with a general lack of accessibility support. Poorly labeled buttons all over the interface, ungrouped buttons separate from their icons, unusable settings controls, impossible to change age range or manage photos without sighted help, plus the interface just outright breaks when trying to navigate through profiles. Every so often, the matches interface "bleeds" through the Discover interface, and the VoiceOver cursor will land in messages while moving the cursor down through a single profile. Have to constantly restart the app to fix this. Most modals are inaccessible, but overall once you have someone with vision help you set photos and preferences up, the core function of the app works. Matching, messaging, all functional although the overall chat interface could use a Lot of accessibility and UX polish. Have been sending them feedback for a while, but have received either no response at all to accessibility feedback, or cookie cutter macro responses that obviously don't understand anything I'm talking about. There has been no focus whatsoever on the accessibility problems for over 2 years now, hoping they at least do a little to surmount the current problems soon.
Terrible customer service
by Potato-Gun on 2018/08/16 14:37
Well my account got banned without any warning. I heard I was suppose to receive an email saying that I had been hit with a report but I never got anything. I dug through my emails and didn’t find a single thing saying I had been banned. Which brings me into my next issue, no response from the support team. I had to look up why it wasn’t letting me log back on because after sending 3 or 4 emails to them, I STILL haven’t gotten a response. It’d be great to actually talk to a support team member to find out my account was banned and why is was banned. I used the app like anyone else, I put up pics of myself, had an average bio and for a long while it worked just fine. Went on a couple of dates and met a few people, but then I’m suddenly banned? From what I’ve read and heard, the reporting system just takes reports from anyone and they are never fully reviewed. So if someone finds you ugly, boring, or just because the feel like it, you could get reported and banned. And it doesn’t take a lot, just about 3 reports and your gone. And from what I heard theres just been a big going around where people are getting strikes for no reason but they won’t unban them. I’m don’t know for sure because I STILL CAN’T GET A RESPONSE FROM THEM! Awful app full of shallow people, and a terrible support team and an even worse method of reporting
Tinder’s Downward Spiral
by Tanner798 on 2018/07/21 07:41
When Tinder first came out and became popular over 5 years ago, it revolutionized the online dating scene, and even impacted dating for the younger age bracket. Now, Tinder has turned into a cess pool. It’s failure to affectively remove spam profiles, bots, and inactive profiles has turned it into the bottom-end dating app with the quality of profiles and people, or rather lack thereof. Tinder has let the cancerous actions and solicitations of individuals run for so long with no noticeable action of banning profiles as punishment that it has become sketchy to meet people in person after matching. The constant shady and disrespectful sexual invitations from desperate men are famous on this app driving the great uncertainty of meeting in general. Less untold are the alarming amount of girls cat fishing on this app as well. Instead of pushing towards a greater quality of people in its profile pool, Tinder is pushing more towards becoming a social media site with its “feed” feature and posting gifs on your profile. The failure for Tinder to make its dating environment more friendly is the exact reason why Bumble exists that competes with it head-on. Other spinoffs are emerging as well to fill this demand of a friendlier dating scene. I am disappointed with this app, and it has become unusable to me as I cannot hope to meet a quality person on Tinder with its continued downward spiral.
Where to begin...
by Jesse Keller on 2019/01/08 02:57
I began using Tinder a couple of years ago, the service it provided was fantastic. However, about 6 months ago I was banned (I have no clue why). Being a premium member I thought “no big deal, I’ll just call and get it resolved”. I was very wrong. After emailing multiple times and talking with multiple representatives I was unable to get my account reactivated. Not only could I get nothing done but each representative just stopped messaging me. To clarify, I was very professional and detailed in my request. Eventually I gave up on getting my account reactivated and began my search as to why I was banned. After again receiving no help via customer service (which is an absolute joke) I contacted Tinders parent company through the BBB. I simply asked why I was banned and received the most obvious information possible “It appears your account has been banned”. They gave no reason or explanation as to why. I replied to that message asking why I was banned. Tinder responded with the same thing I have heard for months “Banned for violating Terms and Conditions”. Not only did they not explain what that was but they also referred to me as Ms/Mrs proving that they never even looked at my account OR the way I addressed myself in my complaint. Therefore, I give them 1 star for the absolute worst and most lazy customer “care” I have EVER received.
Good opportunity to meet more available singles
by Forever97Mariah on 2018/03/11 20:32
Used this app on and off. I usually went on it to sext with someone (let's all be honest) until I matched with someone one day and he had told me that I was going to fast by asking to sext with him right away. That threw me off because I'd usually ask guys and they would ALWAYS be down with no questions asked. I ended up adding this guy on my snap and we immediately clicked. We snapped each other for a few weeks. Then I gave him my number so we can text. Then we would talk for hours on the phone. We had so much in common and had really enjoyed our conversations. We both agreed to meet and go out on a date together. He paid for everything and was really respectful and sweet. And now we've been dating for almost 2 months. We also lived so close to each other that we always spend time together. Little did we both know before Tinder! Hahaha I don't want to sound all corny and stuff, but Tinder does work to meet new people. It worked for me, might not work for others, but what's the hurt in trying it out and seeing what happens.
Met my other half on here
by YourFavoriteNinja on 2019/01/13 04:00
I was always skeptical of whether or not it was possible to meet someone through a dating app and actually be able to have a meaningful friendship or relationship, but here I am to share my success story of Tinder love lol. I had lots of messages from plenty of people, but of course it all felt very meaningless and shallow. It felt like the attraction was only surface level and there was no emotional connection with the people I’ve spoken to. However, when one particular guy reached out to me and was polite to the point of being corny enough to write an essay introducing himself to me I couldn’t help but to respond. This guy turned out to be the sweetest person I’ve ever met in my life and we’re still very happy together after 7 months of dating. For anyone who is looking for love, don’t give up. There’s way too many fish in the sea and some of them may be rotten, but you will eventually find that fantastic catch (I promise I’ll stop with the puns now lol). But seriously, give it a go and see what happens. You can meet someone who you otherwise might have never encountered.
Was a great app
by immaculatemc on 2018/10/14 23:03
Tinder really peaked in 2012 and 2013. It was full of very attractive single people. It felt more elite back then, and it was exciting and fresh and people were more willing to meet up. To be honest it was more genuine and authentic. There was a time in 2013 and 2014 where I was matching with the most incredible and best looking single women I had ever dated in my life. At the time I wasn’t looking for a serious relationship but just to date, and it was one of the best times I’ve ever dated. It was truly a good experience, and I’m afraid that doesn’t exist anymore on Tinder. Today Tinder is full of the dregs of society. Scammers, cheaters, low-quality singles, unattractive people, spam and scam accounts, Sugarbaby and sugar daddy dynamics between men and women, and just general bad behavior when you match. It’s actually more of a pain to use this app then to actually get any benefit out of it anymore. Actual high-quality singles don’t use this app, you’re most likely going to meet people who are either too lazy to seek out better venues to meet quality people, or be incredibly lucky and match with someone of high-quality if that happens. Tinder is now known as a garbage dating app and I would say it’s the fault of the owners of the app to not make the app more exclusive, and make it more high-quality. Tinder is now plenty of fish.
I’m really tired of people on here
by deadbones4546 on 2018/12/01 07:16
The app works exactly what it’s advertised to do. So I applaud the developers on making an easy, interactive way to meet people. Yet this app has such a bad reputation that people like me who are looking for something really can’t find anyone. I’m in college, so I’m simultaneously looking for friends and a partner, yet no one tries on this app. I put effort and emotion into my messages that I believe will strike up conversations between people and 99% of the responses I get are “going good” or “lol yeah” I usually just stop talking to people at that point because it’s obvious they’re on the app as a joke and really don’t care about it. Yet many of my friends complain that they can’t ever find someone that really cares about them. Now I know I’m not a perfect guy, and I know I’m not the greatest looking guy. But I’m so tired of people saying “guys are horrible, they don’t care” when they never give me a chance. I know there’s nothing the developers can do about this problem I’m having, but for me and my surrounding area, this app is just a joke to spend time on. It’s sad that this is what an app like this has become.
by Someguy6347733 on 2018/12/13 08:54
The vast majority of guys I match with completely ghost me, never sending a message even when I send one first. It almost might as well be grindr. What is the point of matching if your matches don't talk to you? Maybe they delete the app immediately after installing it. Maybe their profiles are fake. Something is severely wrong with this app. Four braindead obvious features that should be added: (1) read receipts - let people know when their messages have been viewed (not necessarily opened) - and of course delivery receipts, because people often uninstall the app without deleting their profile, and (2) profile verification - I want to know whether someone is faking, (3) heavily limit right swipes and potentially kick people who always swipe right - and enforce this for everyone, including gold members like me - Tinder users are not here to stroke each others' egos - let's not make it easy for insecure sociopaths to game the system at the expense of everyone else, mmk?, and (4) let users choose not to see inactive profiles - matching with someone who doesn't use the app anymore isn't especially helpful - I get that you don't want to show when users were last active because you don't want to discourage cheaters from using the app, but you can at least do this for the rest of us.
Used to be awesome now it’s broken ALWAYS
by sellkies on 2018/07/24 18:46
I’ve been using this app for a while I highly suggest using bumble and giving them your business. Tinder does not respond to your problems when you send them endless emails.. first my account got banned for no reason. It said my picture was against the rules and regulations when they where all Normal pictures no offensive clothing or graphic material. Just me drinking beer , or in a tree , hiking a trail riding my bike.. so I had to make another fb profile.. got it to work for a few weeks.. met someone so I removed my account.. remade it and it worked for a week I paid for the gold and then a day later it deleted my account.. made another new fb profile.. was able to login for about an hour then it logged me out and says there is a problem logging in. I opened a ticket with support.. each time they say they will look into it. I lost about $100 playing games with customer support and still can’t even log in.. I made another account just now and it let me in for about 10 seconds and then boom logged me out. I’m sure someone is going to apologize finally after me writing a Bad review because they are going to want me to reverse it.. if this is what I have to do for attention to get my account worked out then your a terrible company.
Two years ago today
by Jazmin:)!!!! on 2017/12/05 11:22
After months of FaceTiming and messaging my tinder date we ended up finally meeting. Although he lived in LA and I lived in San Diego we finally met. Two years ago today we went on our first date and he asked me to be his girlfriend. I thought to myself “what are the chances of us both swiping right on each other”, but turns out he swiped right on everyone. Either way, it worked out for the best. In December I’m moving in with him and we’re starting our lives together. Before meeting my boyfriend I thankfully never had a creepy date. We were just incompatible and wanted different things. If you keep searching I’m sure there is someone on the app for you. Even more so now since millions of people use it daily. You just need to weed out the creeps and make it known what you’re looking for. Be straightforward and be selfish. You’re looking for your happiness, not theirs. Im thankful to have found the man of my dreams just through a simple phone app. Thank you tinder for matching me with the most genuine and loving person I’ve ever met.
All you want and more
by Js berry on 2019/03/24 00:28
This is my experience, I’ve had 2 gf’s come from here that started out as fwb’s. The rest of the girls were simply fwb’s or one night stands. Nothing more, and now don’t go into this app looking for anything other than a “good time” as the girls put in their bio because truly this app is a joke. I’ve matched with countless girls and most of them “don’t know what they want” or simply want something “casual”. Dating apps have changed the dating world as we know it and trust me, I’m a man who would rather approach woman in person and so I use this app to broaden my horizon but this app gets me only physical satisfaction if you get what I’m saying’ll have a lot of superficial conversations so I would just recommend having no expectations and if you match with a really cute girl she’s likely to not message back. Oh and I’ve learned women don’t know how to answer 2 back to back questions. If you tell them they’re beautiful then ask them if they would like to go out they’ll say thank you. Like....are you stupid or did you not ever learn how to read?
Tinder is a waste
by flygyrlchi on 2018/04/06 17:19
Tinder is clearly some B.S. it use to be a free app that one could surf and match for free. Now it promotes all these expensive subscriptions for an app that can’t and won’t guarantee meeting someone. Secondly tinder use to allow one to choose the race of their preference, for example, Black Man looking for Black Woman. Now you can’t choose. I find that to be discriminatory. I mean, one will choose what they prefer anyway but because you won’t allow a person to set their preferences, people have to surf through tons of unwanted profiles. Also, I think Tinder is now a seller point, to lure people into purchasing a subscription. They also withhold you receiving matches until you purchase, claiming you will be boosted to the top and will receive more matches. This is all game. You never know who’s working the tech app behind the scenes. Paying won’t guarantee anything. This app was not created to find true love and most people on there aren’t looking for it. The app Is not fun anymore. I joined years ago and erased the app and decided to give it one last time. I erased it after 24 hrs. This app is a waste. Most of the guys you match with will not message you first and the ones that Do message you ain’t talking about much.
Good, but buggy
by itouchgirl45 on 2017/09/17 01:56
I've been using this app on and off for a while and I like it. I've met a few people off of here and met new friends. Recently though, I've been noticing a lot of issues. 1. Even though I have my notifications on, I'm not getting notified of new messages. 2. When I click the send button to respond, my message disappears and doesn't send unless I close out the app multiple times and try again. 3. Before my notifications disappeared altogether, I was getting notifications saying "Jasmine" for example sent you a new message. Even though I'm a female and have my matches sent to male. There are random names that kept appearing in my notifications that I don't have matches with. 4. It takes much longer than normal for my messages and messages to appear. And the app keeps freezing. Overall this app is fairly decent. But I've been having so many issues with bugs that I've barely been on it. Please fix it!!! Also a "looking for" section on a profile would be helpful. As someone looking for something possibly a little more serious, it would be nice to see what others are looking for before I decide to swipe.
Baiting you into gold subscriptions fraudulently
by Mondorange on 2019/01/21 16:54
I have been using the app for months. I originally got the gold subscription only to realize it had little value. However, after I canceled I was continually notified by tinder that I had 3+ likes. No matter how much I swiped, they wouldn’t go away. I figured that these likes were outside of my age or location range, which would explain why I couldn’t find them. Finally I succumbed to discover that all four likes were well within my ranges and two of them were men (I am a man looking only for women). So, two of them should have come up organically without tinder gold and two shouldn’t have shown up at all. Really feel duped. Another problem is that the app is so diluted with what I’ll call bad faith men (men who swipe right for pretty much anyone) that women have to be extra picky to compensate. This results in very few matches outside of high population cities. Even when you do match you will often be ghosted because of the problem I just described (maybe the women are dealing with myriad other matches or missed some disqualification in your profile initially). So, if you live in a big city, get the app but do not get tinder gold. Otherwise you might as well hit on people in bars, you’ll have the same or better success.
Psyched, but disappointed.
by Jjtin on 2018/03/03 03:18
Asian males, and others may possibly have a really hard time finding real life connections through the app because it’s just rough. Tinder’s most recent developments with Tinder Gold makes it impossible to even possibly match with someone who’s probably swiped right(liked) on you unless you’re a Tinder Gold subscriber. Despite having been a Tinder Plus user for years you would think that there’d be some loyalty, or much more help promoting people that have liked you like they once used to when Tinder was kept simple, affordable, accessible, and most importantly- free! The times where all their best services were free have gone. Their developments are proof of how their primary goal is not just to provide a platform for any real potential matches to occur, but to make a bang for their bucks (yes, I said bucks) that they’ve gotta be thrilled to have entering their bank accounts with the multiple purchases people make just to find someone they could one day call their own. Pay up kids. Good luck, I certainly wish you better luck than many of us may have had. Cheers! How do you even unsubscribe from these automated Tinder Plus charges? I’ll take my chances in the real world.
Works well but definitely needs some improvement
by MSminecraft on 2019/01/12 00:00
So far tinder has worked pretty well for me, I even met my girlfriend of 8 months (now ex) on it. Although there need to be some improvements. The first being that i feel that it should be more personalized. Apps like bumble allow users to input basic info about themselves along with their bio. The info includes, religious beliefs, education level, political views, whether they smoke or drink, star sign, whether they’re more of a dog or cat person, and most importantly what kind of relationship they are looking for (i.e. hookups, dating, friendship, marriage) and so on. They then take this data and show you people with similar info first in the stack. I feel like this is an are where tinder has fallen behind. Also tinder maps feature is super buggy and doesn’t even register your swipes half the time so you that person basically disappears and it never actually registered a like or super like. Also i think admin need to do a better job on cracking down on ghost/bot accounts that never respond or just try to sell you a premium webcam subscription or something. Other than these things the app is great.
Banned for no Reason

I actually really like this app. I’m a lesbian and I live in a tiny town in Nebraska so it’s hard to meet other women. This was a good way for me to do that. However, after an encounter with someone who decided to say I harassed them when they unmatched me, my account was banned. To be clear, I did not harass this person. I feel like if you no longer want to talk to someone it is absolutely your prerogative to unmatch them. When I found out my account was banned I reached out to tinder and they offered no explanation except to read the terms and conditions, which I had already done. The same person that unmatched me reaches out to me on Snapchat and said she shouldn’t have done what she did and that she was going to fix it. I took screenshots just in case. She didn’t take care of it so I reached out to tinder yet again with the photos as back up. They informed me that they take violations seriously and there is no appeals process at this time. So I lost my account over something that I absolutely did not do. In conclusion, if you really want to, you can unmatch someone and say that they harassed you with no proof and they will be banned from tinder, effective immediately. Happy swiping!
SMS Authentication, Pay Walls, and Privacy
by SanfrAnon on 2018/09/11 00:16
Tinder used to be a great tool for meeting new people and dating. Everything now has been geared towards monetizing direct user experiences with little gains and enforcing mobile number authentication. I’ve seen dwindling user experiences on other platforms like Okcupid, but it appears that Tinder has fallen subject to the same money hungry illness that often leads to descent. As for the mobile auth, their strategy for adoption is extremely poor in taste. It’s not even a secure method for authentication. They’ve even stated in their support docks that recovery options aren’t available via this method, but if you don’t enter and validate your phone, even for long-time users, access is blocked. While the pressure makes the motive here questionable, It’s also interesting that when my paid subscription ended, I could no longer use the app, despite not entering my number. Guess that was the last straw for them. Aside from other privacy concerns, I can’t filter random telemarketers and text which seems to stem largely from sharing my personal contact info on platforms where my identity is subject to the companies terms and conditions, and let’s face it, no one should trust how anyone but yourself will protect that information. I’m out.
How to Unmatch
by K94W on 2018/07/17 15:19
I don’t like that Tinder is considered a hookup app for many people, and it initially turned me away from using it. After using Tinder I’m glad to find there are still at least a few people looking for something a little more serious, but I do have some complaints about the app structure. After accidentally swiping on someone, I checked multiple reviews (& even Tinder’s help page inside the app) about how to unmatch with a person you’ve swiped on & none were helpful. Every review says that to unmatch with someone all you have to do is click on their profile, click on the 3 dot tab in the upper right corner, & simply hit “unmatch.” However, there is no unmatch option, only “report” or “suggest to a friend”—neither of which I want to do. So there appears to be no way to either block or unmatch with someone without reporting them, & that just seems like overkill & could ruin someone’s account. This is something Tinder really ought to fix if they want to maintain people’s safety as well because not being able to block someone or unmatch could become a problem if the match starts to show unwanted attention.
So fake and a ripoff!
by Herman42BP on 2018/03/15 03:22
This is if you pay for the ability to see who likes you because you have to pay per month to know who liked you. You also have to pay a subscription if you want to like or dislike a certain amount of people. I find that ridiculous because how will you ever talk to that one person who liked you if Tinder blocks that ability unless you pay? I know it’s an app that is trying to make money, but the chances are extremely low for people who use it for free. I spent money to get access, but it was not worth the time and money. Most people that liked me were fake, or they were most likely automated by Tinder to like me to give me some hope that I’ll be able to talk to them and keep paying the subscription fee. One of the person who claimed to like me when I first activated my account along with subscription was obviously someone who sponsors Tinder, or Tinder sponsors that person because that was someone who is somewhat famous on Instagram that is from another country when I found out who the person was on the Internet. The chances that someone would like me was slim, so that was obviously Tinder’s game that played on me. Shame on Tinder for giving people false hope. Better off meeting people face to face.
Good once you learn the ropes

One of the hardest things for me was figuring out how to structure my profile to communicate what was really most important to me in order to attract people I'm interested in. Now that I've iterated on my profile a few times with the help of friends (plus the handy new "see who's liked you" feature) I've had multiple dates using this app that have gone great. I've met some people with whom I've formed great connections. One thing I'd highly recommend is being at the point where you're looking for someone to share your life with because you already enjoy it - not looking for someone to fill some hole in your life you have yet to really examine or figure out yourself. I'd recommend some form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for the later case instead - for me that hole was the fact that I didn't know I had ADD (until I was almost 30). Dating people for the 2nd reason generally does not end well - at least going off the many failed relationships I've seen (including one of my own).
bans without appeals process
by Ben A Johnson on 2019/02/15 15:13
I recently opened the app to clear a notification (as the app sends pointless notifications to get you to sign in and spend money) only to see that my account had been banned for "violating the terms of service." I rarely use the app as for gay people not living in a city it is virtually pointless showing you all the people you already know, so I am quite certain I did not violate those terms. When I wrote to customer service asking for clarification as to which terms I allegedly violated resulting in a ban I was sent a canned response directing me to the entirety of the terms of service and further informed there is no appeals process. In essence Tinder feels no need for transparency or to redress its errors. On the one hand it's a blessing to be able to delete this useless app, but people should know that it has terrible customer service and lacks any transparency in its policy enforcement. There are literally dozens of alternatives on the market that will also allow you to match with local singles and then never actually message or meet them. I'd suggest giving them a try instead, because their service departments are more amenable to providing good customer service beyond copying and pasting information available on their website.
Close but yet so far
by Audrey_writes on 2018/10/04 20:51
I decided to download Tinder during a very low point in my life where I felt lonely and hopeless at ever finding anyone. I never thought anything of it as I would swipe left/right, but 2days in I came across this cute guy named Elvis who I completely fell for. We started talking here and there discussing how Tinder was just out of boredom. We talked for 3 months before we finally met up and turns out he lived down the street from me. We vibed so hard and had so much in common. We continued to hang out and soon enough he asked me out a month later. Now 4 months in im the happiest I’ve ever been in any relationship before and I’ve met the sweetest guy who never leaves my side whether it’s thick or thin. Every now and then we think back to how we met on Tinder and how we always dreamed of finding someone like each other but didn’t think it was possible especially living so close to one another. I know that if it wasn’t for Tinder we still wouldn’t have crossed paths and i wouldn’t have met the man of my dreams ❤️
