Say something interesting about something you saw on their profile.I have a huge owl in one of my photos and it’s 90 per cent of the time the thing they comment on!’ ‘Spend time chatting with your match to see if you guys are really going to be compatible – then you should have a good sense of whether you’re going to hit it off when you meet in person.’ For those who want a wingwoman, this is for you.

A members-only subscription service that costs around £4 per month and allows you to see everyone who has swiped right on you.

Greg Blatt, the CEO of Tinder’s parent company and one of the best online dating sites, Match, has announced exciting new features that he promises to ‘blur the lines between the physical and digital worlds for dating.’ After the success of Tinder Gold – which lets you pay to see who swiped right on you – the new features expected to hit Tinder in early 2018 include AI and geolocation functions allowing users to fully immerse themselves into the activities of the people they’ve already been matched with.
This results in x10 profile views and more chance of a match. ‘Boost mode’ can only be activated while swiping in Tinder mode.
