Tinder’s dating app gives users a quick peek into a potential match’s life before they decide if they’re compatible with just a swipe, but now even more information will be displayed. Following an update that rolled out today, desired relationship types, a person’s pronouns, and relationship goals will now appear front and center on user profiles as badges directly below the name and age. of a person.
Updated information has been added to improve clarity for all users. According to a survey conducted by Tinder, 73% of Tinder users say they search the app for someone who knows what they want and is clear about it. The newfound approach that Tinder is gaining clarity when it comes to what kind of relationship a person is looking for is meant to help streamline interactions and weed out any matches that stem from misaligned expectations.
The information coming with the update isn’t new to Tinder users, as many explicitly state the types of relationships they want in their bios, though not all do. With official additions to each profile, users can now make faster decisions about the people they are looking to hook up with.
The options available to users are intended to provide a lot of detail in only a small amount of space. For example, there are five different options for the Relationship Type setting to include relationships like monogamy, polyamory, and more. Similarly, the pronoun options give users a choice of four pronouns to display on their profile from a list of 15 options. Users can set one of six relationship goals as a profile badge to help them better describe what they’re looking to get out of Tinder with options like “long term relationship”, “short term open long”, “yet”. solve it”, and more.
Hopefully, the updated profile badges will help even more people match up with compatible users and find what they’re looking for much faster without having to resort to the same conversations that take care of asking about intents and goals.
