Too Many Fake Accounts!

this app is by far one of the top dating apps that most people download. But it doesn’t mean it’s the best. The only good thing about it is that I had a few dates here and there. But it took me FOREVER to find someone legit because Tinder , on a guys point of view, is infested with soooo many fake accounts! A lot of young girls are on there promoting there OnlyFans account and Snapchat premiums. As well as fake spammers that make fake profiles with other woman’s pictures. I like that new verified check they added but it’s not enough. this app needs to step it up more on blocking these fake accounts. There has to be a system or a new way to catch/remove these spammers/advertisers.

Other than that, it’s quite legit. You have to get a boost here now and then to actually get noticed. But I don’t blame em’ cause they have to make money some how. That’s why I give Tinder a 3 stars because it can be a lot better for us guys if they can remove and block these fake accounts.

Badoo and these other dating apps went downhill because of these spammers/fake accounts. Please, this app, do not become like them.


It’s all about money and no results

The apps prices have significantly went up for the premium services than what they used to be and a bit more ridiculously priced from other apps. Like now you can’t see who’s swiped on you unless you have the gold service when it used to be on the plus service which plus practically serves no purpose and even now with having the gold service even though I can see who swipes on me it’s as if I don’t get any swipes because Tinder keeps promoting for you to buy boosts and I used the one free boost and got tons of swipes! But now not using boost and not wanting to pay for boost I get like 10 swipes a day and I’ve only had gold membership for a week now and I do swipe on other people as well and can see who is still in the que for who I have swiped on and it seems as though this app isn’t showing me in their swipe stacks because I would of guessed those people to of swiped yes or no on me by now. The experience on here in general has been worst than it has in the past. As far as dating apps go this app has significantly went down and I would say try else where unless you want to spend a lot of money for no results and am already regretting my decision and it has been a huge waste of money. In the past it wasn’t that big of a deal because it was decently priced but now it costs a lot more for it to actually be considered a huge waste. After my subscription ends I’m for sure never downloading Tinder again.


They Can Shut You Down With No Explanation

Within 48 hrs of having downloaded Tinder (most of that time I was traveling so I wasn’t even very active) they put my account under review and asked for some verification photos which I provided. Then I waited a couple days to let things get sorted out before writing the customer service people, I received a response saying that they were escalating the issue for further review, ok no problem do your thing, then I received a follow up email saying my account was all good and I should be able to log in. But then when I went to open Tinder it said I had been banned. This is insane because I’m a super nice respectfully person, only had pleasant and positive interactions with the few people I was chatting with, never said anything that could be deemed offensive or violate their community guidelines or terms of service at all, all of the photos of me were fairly recent… I was shocked. After reaching out again they refused to offer any explanation and said the results were final and permanent. I feel like I was treated very unfairly, and should have at least been given a reason for what was the issue other than “we take our terms and conditions and/or community guidelines very seriously.” Of course, and so would I. Im just highly disappointed and feel betrayed by Tinder. Out of all the ratchet stuff going on constantly, I get banned and I was nothing other than kind and respectful to everyone I chatted with.


Very much a sca these days

When this app first came out it was nearly free to use. Unlimited swipes and I think at least one super like a day. They had a paid option and that really just boosted your profile, gave you more super likes and allowed you to see who likes you, real simple. Over time this app has gotten much worse. Now their pricing is wack and designed to confuse you. Not to mention that they charge way too much for the crap service they provide. $1.50 for a single super like... You still get ads even for the cheapest price of this app plus $8 for one month. I even noticed that as soon as I paid for that single month all the people became way more subjectively atractive and a lot of profiles were suspiciously fake or not from your area yet I set my location and distance preference. Yes, I'm calling out this app for using fake profiles to bring people in. I had been using free this app for a week prior and I never saw those people before. I'm also very positive that the algorithm is tuned to pick subjectively atractive people and display them more prominently. Today after my one month of this app plus ended, I have met no one and then I started to see all the regulars again, profiles I already swiped left on and what seemed to be people in my area. this app is a scam plain and simple. There 6 way to boost your profile article on Tinder store page is a joke. Anyone with a brain could recognize those trends except bright in the new black section made no sense.


Tinder went downhill

I don’t normally leave reviews but it’s really surprising to me how downhill this app has gone. Idk if there are just too many users now and people get put way down in the deck unless they buy the overpriced platinum membership or what, but it’s a night and day difference. Anecdotally, I used to get a dozen or more likes a day and at least 3 matches, and if I boosted I would get several dozens of likes by the end of the 30 minutes. Now I’ll be lucky to get a LIKE, let alone a match. I very rarely get matched with someone I liked first, which is completely different than it was a couple years ago. Idk if it’s because I came back to Tinder after a few years of inactivity (I was in a relationship), and this app sank the rating of my profile so low that I never get surfaced to other people. I’m not going to spend upwards of 50 bucks a month or whatever it is on a platinum membership to get the same experience I did a year and a half ago. App ratings have sunken since, prices of memberships have increased, and it just seems like Tinder is starting to die and they’ll die by squeezing out as much money out of you as they can. Fwiw even after I got a gold membership and used a boost, I still log in every day and see no likes. So I don’t even think paying money is an option for you to get in this app’s good graces unless you get the platinum membership. Just not worth it. Anyway, Hinge seems like a better option.


Don’t waste your time or money!

So, I have had this app off and on for the past few years. But recently after deleting my account to start fresh and take a break. About 2 weeks ago I redownloaded Tinder to give it another shot. However, I was randomly banned without any explanation as to why. I believe I was banned because so many guys I had matched with made sexual advances towards me and I denied them. So they most likely reported my account. And although I have only been back on Tinder for 2 weeks, despite my profile saying I’m looking for a relationship so many guys asked for sexual favors or wanted to hookup. Making vulgar and crass remarks unprompted often right off the bat. Which I should not be reported for. Then I emailed this app to request my account be unbanned and I was given some dry, robot response. With no consideration of what I had experienced using Tinder . So ladies be aware that this can happen to you too. Even if it is not at all your fault! It would be nice to know what terms and community guidelines I supposedly “violated”. Not to mention, I reported the sexual commentary I received constantly. There is a huge issue with men who are looking to cheat on their significant others on Tinder. I’m sure I am not alone in this. But how am I more at fault then people who are committing adultery? I not anyone else should not be punished for declining their advances and wanting to actually DATE someone we connect with! Crazy concept.



I've used Tinder almost since Tinder first was created, and it has led to some decent dates and friendships along the way. I truly enjoyed Tinder (not so much the "match- and-silence/ignore" trend, but that falls on the user, not Tinder ). I've posted rather silly pictures of my self fully clothed. I've never harassed anyone or pursued anyone beyond a clear ignoring of a message or unmatch. Not was my profile spam or fake in any way. I was instructed by the generic automated email when I reached out and all I was told is that I "violated the user agreement or terms of use" or something along those lines. When I checked those terms, there was not one thing that could be remotely close to any term that I've broken that l've done in the years of using Tinder . And when I replied back with elaboration, there was, of course, no response. They also stopped allowing appeals, so now l'm unable to get back on Tinder . There are other apps, I know. But this just doesn't sit right with me - someone who uses Tinder onlv for it's intended purpose and is not life banned for Tinder for no apparent reason, given no explanation, and no opportunity to fix it.

Tinder was in the end a waste of my time and money (oh yeah, I subscribed multiple times to their advanced features to see who swiped on me because why not?)

Beware any newcomer to Tinder that this is a fairly common issue on getting banned for no reason! Enjoy it whilst you can...


Too many fakes, scammers, “catfish”

Nothing is done to ensure that the people on the site are actually genuinely looking for a match. Captchas aren’t installed, having a “verified” profile is optional, most members don’t fill anything in the bio because it’s not even required. Often you’ll see people that are thousands of miles away by mileage, or people that are nearby, but their “live in” city is thousands of miles away because they’re just visiting your area. Needs to be a setting to only show those people that are physically nearby and also live nearby, or where you can select it if you want to see visitors. There’s no way to tell political leanings unless they put certain tags in their profile or put it in their bio. There’s no way to know important things like if they have pets or drink/smoke unless they happened to answer those questions-they’re optional. There’s no way to make it so you only see people that don’t have pets or don’t smoke or restrict out certain tags a person might add as their interest, for example “Activist”. To be a better app, these things need the focus, not the cutesy “Vibes” questions that don’t have much meaning to whether they’re going to be a good partner or not. And having to “Boost” in order to be seen by people you like is lame - it ought to just automatically put them front and center for them and tell you if they rejected you or not. But anything for a buck, eh, this app?


why take requests if you don’t make appeals

After not using my account for a couple days I opened Tinder to check my messages, only to find out that my account had been banned. I read all the terms and guidelines to see what i could possible have violated, and came up with nothing. I submitted a request to appeal the ban, only to get an automated email saying that they aren’t taking appeals “at this time” and that my account was banned for breaking community guidelines (and didn’t even specify which I had violated). Has this app ever taken appeals? Because from what I have read it appears not. Why even make it an option to submit a request if nothing will change? It seems like a massive waste of time on both ends. I am apparently not the only person that this has happened to either. this app needs to fix their customer service to accept appeals and to talk to a real person about issues with one’s account. The handling of the situation on this app’s part was terrible. I had a lot of fun using Tinder when I did go on it and am extremely frustrated that I was banned without any reason or warning. How is it even possible to violate community guidelines when you’re not actively using Tinder and don’t have a fallacious or promotional profile? In addition, I am still getting message notifications from Tinder , even though my account is banned and it signed me out. Absolutely mind-boggling to me.


Notifications are belittling

Had a notification today that stated essentially “the only way to get out there in the dating world is to get back online - who would’ve known 😱” not only is it unprofessional to assume that I’m currently wanting to get on this app to use for dating currently, but it’s also ridiculous to think that this app is the only way to meet a significant other. Not only the snarky and condescending wording by whoever decided to write this notification, but to not respect my boundaries of when I chose if I’d like to use this app for my dating choices or not is crazy to me and others. If I don’t want to use this app for the meantime, I don’t need your team to try to convey a disrespectful message/notification to me. Sarcasm towards your clients is the absolute dumbest way to get them to use your app and spend money as well. Not only that, you want people to pay 24 dollars a month for a premium package for a site that has a history of hookups, not long term relationship success. You really try to screw your clients in more than one way. Deleting Tinder for good tonight, and if you have any respect for yourself, I suggest others do the same as well. Obviously this company cares more about how much money they can get out of you, not how meaningful the relationships and success rate of long term relationships that are built from them. If I could rate this company and app worse than a 1 star, I would.


Only giving it 2 stars because I met a nice friend.

I’ll keep it short and simple. Here you have an app that’s made to connect people and bring them together. In order for you to see who liked you, you need to pay. In order to get more attention via a boost, you need to pay. You want better “top picks”, you need to pay. If your like me, and already literally hated the idea of using dating apps, then don’t waste your time here unless you have money laying around that you don’t mind throwing at Tinder all the time.
Not only this app, but most “dating” apps are just broken. I get the idea of bringing people together along with preferences to narrow it down, however this app and others try to fit all groups into one. What I mean by that is - this is a dating app right? Where you go to meet people to, ya know, date? I’d say these apps are broken down into three categories of use - relationships, hooking up, and validation. I’d say most people here are on for validation. They don’t want love, they want the love they get from 20 people swiping on them inflating their ego. The next small group is looking for just sex, and the next is actual dating. There really should be an app out there for people to sign up for just for all that attention people need and want. Dating apps? Ya ok, more like feed someone else’s already inflated ego app.


Oh boy

Just recently got out of a relationship and decided to dive back into the dating app world, and all I have to say is wow. this app has really slipped. What used to be a brilliantly simple and effective dating app has turned into a frustrating, convoluted, pay-walled mess. For this app to be even remotely useful, you have to pay for it. And once you do, you’re allowed features that are literally free on other apps. Wanna see who likes you? You’re going to have to pay more a month than you do on a Netflix subscription for that. Btw, Hinge does that for free. Wanna leave a comment on someone’s picture? Surely you can do that with the Gold membership, right? Nope. Gotta shell out even more money for ~platinum~. Guess who also does it for free? You got it. Hinge (and I think OKC too). And even after emptying your wallet on one of their higher subscription tiers, you still only get one boost a week, and you’re still hounded with pop ups every 10 minutes to try out their creepiest feature - the super like. All of this on top of the inherent dating app negatives (ghosting, catfishing, creeps, excessive filters, etc) and you’re in for a miserable ride. Save yourself the stress and money and try literally any app other than this app. Or just go to a bar. You’ll spend about the same amount of money but at the very least you’ll get a good buzz.


Banned for no reason???

I’ve had to make 4 different accounts during the time I’ve tried to use Tinder bc I keep getting banned for reasons I cannot figure out and that we’re never explained. None of my photos were any more revealing than cleavage peeking out of my shirt, and the most explicit thing I mentioned was that I was looking for hookups on a HOOKUP APP. When you get banned you don’t have any way to appeal, any info as to why so you can avoid it should you make a new account, and you can no longer attach your phone number, email, or Apple account should you make a new profile later, meaning unless you change your Apple ID you can’t get a subscription for your new profile. And if you were talking to someone on the site, unless you have already given them your alt contact info they will have no idea where you went or how to contact you. The issues have been going on for literal YEARS without anyone trying to fix or address them and the only reason I’ve even TRIED to remake my account is bc they have a serious monopoly on the hookup app market; there’s plenty of other apps without these issues but almost no one uses them. With the sheer number of users on their app and the boatloads of money they make off the almost mandatory subscriptions, you would think they could put in a little more effort to fix these long-standing issues.


Banned for no reason

Oooo I’m livid I’ve used this app forever. I deleted my old account for awhile as I had ended up in a relationship but after that not working out I reinstalled this app and made myself a new account. I did not violate any terms. I didn’t even have a bio and just selfies as pictures, nor did I message any inappropriate things. Honestly I barely messaged anyone I just sent people my Snapchat so the reasoning behind the ban is what I’m confused about. Especially considering I’d had my new account open for like a month before it was banned and hadn’t changed anything on my profile, and also when I went to open Tinder and found out I was banned I hadn’t been on it in like a week. I was so mad considering once you’re banned that’s it. You cannot use this app again unless you get a new phone number and Apple ID. I tried getting in contact with some type of support but couldn’t find much help. I emailed about an appeal for my ban but all I got back was a robotic email stating I was banned and can’t be unbanned but still have no reasoning. It’s really pathetic honestly. Then I come on here and realize a bunch of people are getting banned for no reason left and right. Y’all need to get it together and fix this. This is going to drop yalls ratings and user amount tremendously especially considering y’all are getting rid of users yourself by banning them.


men: just say no. not even once.

I know it’s tempting and you want to use this app, but wait a minute man it’s not worth it. Even for pretty attractive guys, it will extremely difficult to find matches and it will destroy your self esteem. this app algorithms make this problem even worse. Even if you think you don’t care, you’ll end up feeling terrible about yourself even if you’re a good guy. Academic research on the apps show that top ~20% most attractive guys get almost all of the like and matches, like the vast vast majority, and that women users rank ~80% of men as below average. So essentially if you are 80th percentile or above, top 20+% of all men your age in attractiveness, hot and built, you will do okay. For the other 80% of us average and above average guys, just don’t join, don’t let it ruin your self esteem, don’t be a simp.

and that’s assuming you don’t get scammed. Lots and lots of women on these apps pretending they want to date or meet up with you and then they convince you to send them “half the money for the hotel” over Venmo or “Uber money to come over” or whatever and then they block you and you never hear from them again. Come on guys, don’t be simps. Don’t send women money, ESPECIALLY if you’ve never met her in person. If she wants money and you haven’t met her in person yet, it a scam always always always. Maybe a real person, doesn’t matter, still a scam


Tinder is a scam

I wish I’d have read the other reviews before paying for the “Gold” package. I recently went through a break up and considering I’m not from the place I am now living I thought I’d jump on this app and meet some people. I literally was only trying to meet people for friendship. Things are going okay, I’ve met a couple cool people, shared some music, seems all good, open Tinder up about 4-5 days later: YOUR ACCOUNT HAS BEEN BANNED. For absolutely no reason at all. I read every single word it the terms of agreement and the guidelines, I did not violate a single one. I was never disrespectful to anyone, if someone never responded to my “hello” or stopped responding when we were messaging back and forth I wouldn’t send another message, I wasn’t even on Tinder to find hook ups in the first place. this app is operating outside the lines of good business practice. You can’t contact them in any meaningful way whatsoever, they have no appeal process, nothing. this app is a sham. Apple should be ashamed of themselves for even allowing them in Tinder Store. I have now read through hundreds of reviews, Reddit and Quora posts and posts elsewhere explains this exact same situation. this app is banning paying customers for no reason, with no explanation and keeping their money. They are taking advantage of people simply looking to meet other people. this app is trash.


Fun while it lasted

Well it was fun while it lasted but it looks like this app is finally pay to win now. Started out small with taking away the amount of likes you had every 12 hours. Than they took away the super like feature, unless you pay for it, and then they started to shadow banned accounts that were not signed up for this app gold. For the last few months the work around to all this was to make a new account every couple of weeks. New accounts get shown as normal but then after 2-3 weeks you were shadow banned. No big deal just delete your account and make a new one but it looks like the money hungry leeches at this app caught on. You can’t delete your account anymore and instead of being shown for 2-3 weeks you are now only shown for 24 hours. You are still able to swipe on people however it doesn’t matter. No matter if you swipe right or left on someone you will still be shown their account each time you log back on. I came across the same accounts 9 times in a row. You now have unlimited likes but again this is worthless as your likes don’t mean anything because the people you like won’t see it. I really liked this app. Was my go to dating app and I had nothing but positives to say about it for the past few years. But now I guess it is officially dead unless your fork over some cash.


My “Tinderella” Story

I downloaded this app because a few friends told me to. I was nervous because I figured it wasn’t something for me. I’ve always been the relationship type of person so I figured an app known for other things was definitely not where I’d find love. Unlike some of these bad reviews I didn’t buy this app gold or anything like that, I actually thought the regular app was quite fun. I honestly got addicted to it and would spend a lot of time swiping. I swiped right on this adorable, tall, guitar playing guy and we immediately matched (yay). He texted me first and we hit it off straight away. Turns out him and I went to the same college and everything. We had SOOO much in common. After getting my phone number and facetiming for a couple days, he picked me up and we went on our first date, which would be one of many many wonderful dates. Little did I know downloading this app would lead to meeting the love of my life. Just thought I should share my “Tinderella” story on here to let everybody know that while this app is super fun, it can also lead to something more than just somebody to text or talk to. :)


Tinder Ban

I’ve been using this app for years. I’ve never had any issues with it. Two days ago my account randomly disappeared from Tinder . My account disappeared and neither my Facebook (which was connected to it), phone number, or email were recognized by this app. I contact costumer support and they give me a few options. That’s when I remember I’m also connected to Tinder through my laptop. I check and my account still exists. Somehow that brings back my account on the mobile app. Problem solved right? Last night I match with a person, reach out to them. They reply with a rude response so I report them and they’re unmatched. Today I go on to Tinder to discover I’ve somehow been banned. No reason given. The only connection I could think was the random glitch two days before or me reporting someone for rude behavior. Strangely enough my account still exists on my computer so I’m assuming this is another glitch. I have this app Platinum for another week so this makes the problem more annoying. Based on the recent reviews other people our getting banned. I hope this gets resolved or Tinder makes a statement. My advice if you’re planning on using this app avoid paying for a description on the chance you’re banned out of nowhere. At least until Tinder recognizes there are issues and attempts to fix them.


Why did I get banned?

Now typically I wouldn’t get upset over something so silly but the fact that I’ve never been banned from anything and that I actually didn’t do anything wrong really bothers me. I read through all your terms and conditions and thought maybe I made an honest mistake and somehow violated them but no. I did not violate your terms and conditions and I have no idea why you banned me. I’m gonna take it as a sign that I just shouldn’t be on this app but I mean still. Plus Tinder has no way to like fight the ban or even be reconsidered unless you are simply under review which is kinda dumb. I’m a real 21 yr old female, who is from American and currently lives in Italy for my job and I was literally on this app for a day but my phone service was not operating correctly so I tried deleting my account but it wouldn’t let me so I paused it. Then when my phone started to operate correctly again I tried to log back in to unpause my account and it said I was banned. None of my photos are copyright and there’s no way I could’ve gotten reported or anything when my phone was so messed up I couldn’t get any matches like it just kept putting the same people up over and over. Maybe you should ban Tinder instead of me. Whether it be my phone service or just your app bugging out, who knows but it definitely is not my fault.


I met my Fiancé on Tinder!

A few years ago I used this app and had a bunch of matches. I was not sure what I was looking for at the time. It’s used for one night stands, fwb, just friends, and relationships. I only talked to the matches who interested me. For some reason I was drawn to my (now) fiancé. After only a couple days of talking we decided to meet. He seemed to want something more serious, which kind of scared me at the time because I didn’t know if that’s what I wanted. However, we went on a few dates and really hit it off. Because this app is used for multiple things, YOU can choose what you’re looking for. If you’re not sure, see where it takes you. If someone’s creeping you out, unmatch. Simple. I don’t think I was looking for a relationship at the time but as it turned out, this app was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Without it, I would have never found the love of my life. Even if that’s not what you’re wanting, there’s so many other options, just let the people you match with know what you’re into. If they’re not into it too, that’s fine because there’s plenty of people using Tinder . Take the shot and download Tinder . You might be glad you did. If you do meet up with someone, leave your location on and let a friend or family member know where you’re going, their name, and send them a picture of the person you’re meeting. Doesn’t hurt to be safe. I thankfully never face to face met any weirdos on there.


Tinder is my ultimate wingman!

I have to be clear, I thought this app didn’t work when it first came out, however it turns out it was user error. Since realizing my initial mistakes, I tried Tinder again and have met so many women from this app that I cannot count. It’s pretty simple, DONT BE WEIRD OR BORING!!! Things got real when I started leaving the United States to travel. OMG it’s absurd how many matches I’ll have in a 24 hour period. I had good success using Tinder in America, but it’s definitely more difficult for men using Tinder in the USA because lots of competition. this app literally changed my life in unexpected and great ways. I can travel to any country and have my matches already figured out a week or so before my traveling. it’s also great to have a local show you around and be on a date at the same time while out of the country. I have met so many amazing women all over the world now. I NEVER write app reviews or reviews in general, but this app changed my life into an amazing adventure and I’m grateful. I will say this though: don’t be a cheap guy and use the free version of Tinder and then complain that it doesn’t work. Premium is definitely worth the monthly charge. You don’t have to swipe anymore on premium, and you can change your location to anywhere on earth, except maybe North Korea, lol. I’m totally fine with you guys not stepping up your game though, just means more for me. Good luck and have fun! Thanks this app so much!!!


Married the love of my life!

I honestly wasn’t sure what I was looking for when I joined this app. I had experienced other dating apps, and just wasn’t making any serious connections. And, then I met my husband, or eventually to be. We kicked off immediately and spent the entire night on FaceTime, getting to know each other. He left for training with the Marines, the next day. We wouldn’t speak again for more than a month; but when we did, it was like coming home. My husband and I have been together for four years now, approaching one year as a married couple. In that time, we’ve welcomed a beautiful baby girl, graduated college, purchased our first home, and kick started two extremely successful careers. I often catch myself wondering what our lives would look like, had we not connected that one day, that last day before he disappeared for an entire month. The timing couldn’t have been any more perfect, as cliche as that may be. I’m not one to credit an app for my life, but I will say, I’m thankful every day that I had the opportunity to meet the person I call my other half. That’s exactly what this app is - an opportunity. What you do with it, is up to you. With any dating app, there are unsuccessful stories; however, I want people to know, it doesn’t matter how or where you met, what matters is that it’s possible for your love to grow out of the mosh unexpectable of circumstances. And, so here we are.


Met my wife here😍

I’ve been using Tinder for a total of about 2 years. I had interesting experiences with this app. 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 this app because I was either focused on one person (though never had a real relationship with the people I met on this app) 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 Tinder , 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.


Locks you out and demands your phone #

I found Tinder hit and miss, one great match, but lots of weird scams and prostitution attempts - especially if you use it during odd hours lol but when they demanded my phone number non negotiably in order to log in and access my ongoing conversations, I simply stopped using it. This is an awful policy decision, and I'll hold out hope for a while that they'll reverse it. this app is not a company I'm sharing any more personal data with. Especially given their recent spotty history with data breaches! Sadly their interface doesn't allow you to delete your account without first giving your phone number to gain access to the settings, which is bizarre, and probably illegal.

Update. I gave them my phone number. Now I can meet attractive people who don't actually talk to me, because they're just trying to grow their IG following. You may be wondering, why the 5 star rating from such a vocal critic? Well, I met the person of my dreams here, and it was fun while it lasted. Very hard to meet people in general, but I got lucky beyond anything I'd thought was possible. There is totally life after cancer. Also, there are very attractive people who are also kind-hearted. And who are looking for older, fat guys who smell bad and are unaccomplished. Who knew?


Needs improvement.

While it’s alright on a general level, there are many areas for improvement. For example, it would be even more effective if more optional filters/preferences could be applied in order to pinpoint who you’re trying to look for in a more efficient manner (Ex: height, personality, more “submissive” or “leading” in a relationship, etc.), therefore more traffic will be brought to Tinder due to how much more inclusive it would be to a larger audience, as well as how people will be able to find who they’re looking for much easier than before, making them more content with the service overall. Plus, additions like these would make Tinder more popular and more likely to be used by people, aka would bring more money in than before, so it’s boggling why something like this hasn’t been added yet, because it would benefit both the consumer AND the producer.

In addition, something minor yet I still feel should be addressed, is an issue on the technical level. Sometimes Tinder will give a notification (if it even remembers to show it even with notifications turned on), but when I open Tinder to check, nothing is there. For example, let’s say someone sent me a message, I’ll open Tinder to check it, yet it doesn’t appear, causing me to have to reload the site until it does. Even though something like this is minor, it still is annoying to have to deal with on a day-to-day basis.


Met My Husband

I can’t sincerely say I didn’t expect much out of Tinder 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 Tinder 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 this app. Because of Tinder I have a beautiful son and an amazing fiancé.


Found a keeper!

I met my boyfriend through this app! We both actually weren’t taking Tinder seriously. I was just on it to kill time usually. I didn’t really meet anyone through Tinder in person. My boyfriend had actually watched a video with his friend where two guys switched this app 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 Tinder. 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 Tinder a shot. You never know who else could be on there!


Met my boyfriend on here surprisingly :I

Honestly I really didn’t entirely trust Tinder to begin with. I actually downloaded it as a joke to mess w people to be completely honest. One day while matching w these people I at least found attractive, I got a message from a guy I REALLY didn’t expect to say anything. When I looked at his bio he literally had the dumbest words plastered onto it. “Looking for friends ;-;” .. honestly I was gonna unmatch him there, but I decided to at least see what he was like. Well.. we ended up talking for hours.. and then hours became every day from that point on(haven’t broken the talking streak yet). Around 3 weeks later we became official without even having even met each other, and TRUST me we’re both fully aware that it was extremely early but I guess we both just knew we’d be good together :). Our one month anniversary is tomorrow and I’m still really surprised I met him on this app of all places. Surprisingly so, our personalities are almost identical in some ways and we think so in sync which actually kind of terrifies me. Yeah it’s still mega early but I guess I felt obligated to thank Tinder and see how far it goes in the future:>. So far we’ve been on 3 dates and kissed for the first time on the most recent one ;). Wish us luck!


Tinder is not tinder anymore

I know I’m stupid for doing it but if you ever spend money with this company expect it to go in the trash they wipe your account or glitch it away you pick the phrase they don’t respond to any customer service I had an issue more than six months ago that I have sent follow-up messages twice just to have proof of how ridiculously bad the service is and Apple denies all accountability no matter what happens even if they have already helped you with the same thing before And regardless of accountability I never really care about the few dollars I spent on it it’s more just frustrating to pay for something and it flat out not work I thought that’s why I had a receipt...... Anyways after you tell Apple four times in a row what I feel is common sense clear enough as clear was all I had tried to make the statements they will ignore that you’re not asking for a refund and they will just tell you you can’t have a refund well listen again maybe someone will I didn’t want refunds I just wanted apple to tell me how to make tender respond since they wouldn’t help me and kept telling me oh no you need to wait even longer I have been waiting for over half a year! That’s ridiculous! Apple knows it too that’s what I get though for not shopping face-to-face where people actually are concerned about getting slapped silly and for the record I tried to be extremely polite and understanding that’s just what this new world is now


I was catfished!!!!

So I matched with a relatively good looking girl on this app. 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 this app 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 this app 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.


Extremely Poor Customer Service

I joined this app 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.


It’s ok? I guess?

Over the past 5-6 months of being on Tinder , 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. Tinder 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 Tinder 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.


Not worth the trouble.

I’ve had Tinder for about 1 year. Yeah I got the this app 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 Tinder . 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.


would give ZERO stars if I could

I usually NEVER leave reviews but today I will. I used to love Tinder. 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 this app 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 this app 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 this app “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. this app 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 this app would ban an account over a report, and not check into it themselves, because I have done absolutely nothing wrong.

Closed my account without reason   1 year ago

They just decide closed and banned without any reason worse app 🤮
