Tinder also links through Facebook, allowing us to see what mutual friends and page likes we have in common (an easy screening tool if you have mutual friends).
The best feature on Tinder is that users can't communicate unless there is a mutual “liking” between them, which keeps things straight forward and prohibits creepy dudes from sending unsolicited pseudo-erotic poetry about burning embers and dark souls to the younger women they fancy on sites like OK Cupid (true story).
The new feature costs $9.99 for users up to 29 years old.
But for anyone over 30, Tinder wants $19.99 per month, twice the amount perky young 20-somethings have to shell out.
It depends on where you’re looking, according to award-winning dating and relationship expert Katy Horwood.
Speaking exclusively to uk, Katy said: “Online dating sites can be a fantastic way of connecting with other singles, a place where people can virtually connect without having to invest huge amounts of time or money trying to establish whether they might get on or not.“However, it can be a double edged sword and, whilst choice, and the abundance of it, can be a good thing when looking for a relationship, it can also be overwhelming and create a culture of always thinking there’s something better around the corner!
Or better yet, why not just be honest: Tinder is charging us more because it thinks we are desperate.
Desperate to find our last chance at love and willing to pay whatever it takes. I'm not desperate enough to keep using Tinder now that I know it considers me a dried up old hag.
Twenty-somethings generally have more time, energy and optimism when it comes to getting dates than those of us trudging through our 30s or 40s with that extra set or two of baggage we've acquired over time.
They also have a seemingly endless supply of other available young people to choose from.
A recent study by Voucher Codes Pro found over a third (35 per cent) of Brits met their partners online.
But is it a good thing, or is the rise of technology in relationships leading to the death of the date?
Because, well, when I was 25, there seemed to be no shortage of men and women to hook up with and no shortage of time during which to meet them.
