These new features are intriguing (and I’ve definitely found myself wishing for a chance to take back an accidental left swipe!
), but with a sticker price of .99 a month, Tinder Plus is definitely outside the budget of most of its users.
Now that Tinder is charging for its services, it might be time to turn to one of the many other dating apps available.
As with Tinder, users swipe right to indicate interest in a potential match, or swipe left to pass.
They can chat with matches, and add photos and information about themselves.
Matches have expiration dates, so that if a match doesn't respond within three weeks, it disappears.
Each member receives one ticket to bring in a friend, allowing that friend to bypass the application process.
Without a ticket, a potential user can sign up for the waiting list.
When it comes to online dating, there is a lot of comfort and success in choosing apps that are already popular (unsurprisingly, dating apps without a lot of users tend to not work very well).
