tinder dates

Music is one of those things which either brings people together or drives them apart.

So if you’re the kind of person who runs for the hills at the very mention of Harry Styles’ hair, you probably don’t want to find yourself in an intimate situation with an honorary member of the One Direction fan club.

Because of this, the clever people at Tinder and Spotify have teamed up to create a feature which will allow Tinder users to suss out the musical tastes of potential matches before they take the plunge and swipe right.

As well as being able to broadcast a song which “defines you” directly from your Tinder profile, the new feature will help you find potential matches who share your taste in tunes.

When checking out someone else’s Tinder, you will be able to play previews of their top songs and see which artists you have in common.

Oh, and for those who’ve spent the last month secretly listening to the Frozen soundtrack, don’t panic – Tinder will allow you to hide what you’ve been playing until it’s fit for the ears of your crush.

Is it just us or does everyone find it completely enraging when you’re swapping messages with Zac Efron on Tinder and then realise, ‘doesn’t Zac have a model girlfriend right now?’

It’s number one on our list of daily annoyances. However, the good folks at Tinder are set to make this a problem of the past. Thank goodness!

Tinder is now introducing a new verification for notable people. That little blue check mark that lets you know you are officially reading Miley’s tweets is now going to be made available on Tinder too.


In a blog post for the app it said:

“Each day, 26 million matches are made on Tinder, and we do our best to keep those matches real –  that’s why we’re rolling out Verified Profiles,"

How thoughtful of them. We bet Hilary Duff probably would have made use of this not too long ago.

As of right now, the verification process isn’t available. So all of you will have to wait in anticipation before you go ensuring the powers that be at Tinder can make sure you’re actually swapping numbers with Drake and not some knock off reading inspirational quote from Pinterest.

In the same post Tinder stated that “you may see a verified symbol on some profiles. Now when notable public figures, celebrities and athletes appear in your recommendations, you’ll know it’s for real."

Great news! Because I’ve always wanted to know if that was the real Nick Jonas I matched with four months ago or not.

We’re also just really nosey and are looking forward to the screenshots of professional athletes attempting to woo some lucky ladies with their witty one liners.

This should be very entertaining.


This woman who bravely went on a date with someone she met on Tinder actually wound up having a fairly alright time… Or so she thought.

While the date seemed to be a success, with the pair sharing an arm-in-arm stroll and even a kiss, it was the man’s next day response that caused Michelle Thomas to write him an open letter.

As much as we all give out about not getting the next-day-call, sometimes silence is golden.

This guy, simply known as Simon, felt the need to explain exactly why he wouldn’t be taking 30-year-old Michelle out a second time.

“You’re cheeky and funny and just the sort of girl I would love to go out with,” sounds like she’s ticking all the boxes so far, no? He continued, “if only my body and mind would let me. But I fear it won’t." 

“I’m not going to bulls**t you… I f***ing adore you Michelle and I think you’re the prettiest looking girl I’ve ever met. But my mind gets turned on by someone slimmer.”

Is this guy actually serious?

Michelle’s open letter that she wrote in response illustrates all the great attributes that this *insert word of choice here* man mentioned, before he decided to comment on her weight.

Ms Thomas explains how Simon has a 13-year-old daughter and it is because of her that she wrote her letter.

“You stirred a dormant fear that every woman who was ever a teenage girl has. That it doesn’t matter how funny you are, how clever, how kind, how passionate, how loyal, how determined or adventurous or vibrant – if you’re a stone overweight, no one will ever find you desirable.”

She encourages the man to praise his daughter’s “intellect and her creativity.”

And oh, she also tell him that he can kiss her “exquisite, unmarriageable arse.”
