Dating app Tinder gives users a quick look into a potential match’s life before deciding whether they’re compatible by swiping, but now even more information will be available on the full screen. Following an update that went live today, desired relationship types, a person’s pronouns, and relationship goals will now appear front and center on user profiles as badges located directly below the name and a person’s age.
Updated information has been added to improve clarity for all users. According to a survey conducted by Tinder, 73% of Tinder users say they are looking for someone on the app who knows what they want and is clear about it. Tinder’s new approach is gaining clarity when it comes to what kind of relationship a person is looking for and is designed to help streamline interactions and eliminate any matches that stem from misaligned expectations.
The information coming with the update isn’t new to Tinder users, as many explicitly state their desired relationship types in their bios, though not everyone does. With official additions to each profile, users can now make faster decisions about who they want to match with.
The options available to users are designed to provide a lot of detail in a small amount of space. For example, there are five different options for relationship type settings to include relationships such as monogamy, polyamory, and more. Similarly, the pronoun options give users the ability to choose between four pronouns to display on their profile from a list of 15 options. Users can also set one of six relationship goals as a profile badge to help better describe what they want to get out of Tinder with options like “long-term relationship,” “short-term open to long,” “still” . figure it out”, and much more.
Hopefully, the updated profile badges help even more people connect with compatible users and find what they’re looking for much faster without having to resort to the same conversations that try to ask about intent and goals.
