Tinder is the dating app that came out of nowhere to completely dominate the UK dating scene. Now even celebrities are joining up
Seen any familiar faces on Tinder lately? Keep your eyes peeled – because apparently Leonardo DiCaprio has signed up. Or should we say Leonard, which is his pseudonym.
According to the American publication Star Magazine, DiCaprio told a ‘source’ at Coachella that he’s ‘obsessed with swiping on girls and seeing who’s out there. He said there’s actually a lot of other celebs who use Tinder just for fun!’
And maybe he’s right. This weekend, an eagle-eyed Reddit user also spotted Hilary Duff on Tinder.
How does this Tinder app work then?
It’s really very simple and easy. It finds your location using GPS, then uses your Facebook information to create your profile (don’t worry, nothing about Tinder will ever be posted to Facebook). A Tinder profile is made up only of your first name, age, photos (of your choice) and any pages you’ve ‘liked’ on Facebook.
Tinder then finds you potential matches near you (you can narrow it down by searching by age and distance) and if they take your fancy, you swipe right to ‘like’ them. If not, go left to ‘pass’. If they’ve also ‘liked’ you – bingo. It’s a match and you can start messaging.
