Tinder will begin offering its users the option to select their own pronoun (from over 15 pronouns), as well as choose the type of relationship they want, including monogamy, ethical non-monogamy (ENM), open relationship, polyamory and open to exploration. . This is said to particularly target users aged 18-25, as well as people who identify as LGBTQIA, the fastest growing group using the app to date.
The new features came about after researching the needs of Tinder users. In this research conducted in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Canada, where 4,000 young people aged 18 to 25 who were in an active relationship were surveyed, it was found that while 51% of people who were in Generation Z want monogamous relationships, 41% of young singles actually are. open to seeking non-monogamous relationships. 36% of participants were also willing to maintain open relationships and 26% of people were interested in polyamory.
Similarly, it was noted that the number of LGBTQIA Tinder users has more than doubled in the past two years. Additionally, 33% of current users agreed that their sexuality is more fluid, while 29% said their gender identity had become more fluid in the past three years.
However, feature deployment may not be the same for everyone. In the UK, for example, it could happen later this year, with Tinder allowing users to choose up to four pronouns to display on their profile from a list of more than 15 options. Sexual orientation and gender will also be available for selection and display.
Tinder was launched in 2012.
