What does a Tinder ‘Like’ even mean anymore? Where has the passion gone behind each right swipe? It seems like nowadays a measley ‘Like’ is just saying “Ya, I’d piss on you if you were on fire. You have to buy me drinks first, though.” THAT MAY BE TOUGH TO DO WHILE I’M ON FIRE, TINA, YOU GODDAMN HALF WIT.
Tina and I never worked out. Irreconcilable differences.
If you’re like me, your heart jumps less and less with each successive match, and in some ways, you die a little more with each right swipe.
Well, that’s set to change, bros!
Tinder is set to release a third swiping option–the SUPER LIKE button, and in conjunction, restore my faith in love all over again :).
Per Tinder’s Blog:
Now, by swiping up, or simply tapping the new blue star icon when looking at someone’s Tinder profile, you let that special someone know that they stand out from everyone else. The person you Super Liked will take notice – when your profile appears and they’re deciding whether to swipe right, it will show up with a bright blue footer and star icon, highlighting that you Super Liked them. And when they do swipe right on your Super Like, it’ll be an immediate match!
And Tinder doesn’t want your ‘Super Likes’ to go to just any ol’ hussy. They will limit your Super Like to just one per day. You also cannot bank them (i.e. if you don’t use your Super Like in a given day, you can’t carry it over. This isn’t Russia.)
Super Like is now available in Australia and will roll out globally later this year.
