To browse for someone you like, you merely tap the “matches” option, which, oddly, does not show you the people you’ve matched with but rather the people you could potentially match with.
If that interface is too chaotic for you, tap the “quickmatch” option, which restricts the results to photos only.
You can also link your Tinder account to your Instagram, and include info about your employer and school. You can tap on the photo to see additional information regarding the person and Facebook friends you share (if any).
Discovery settings allow other users to find you if desired and set a few preferences regarding who you see. You can also choose to swipe right (to like them), left (to pass), or up if you want to use one of your precious “super likes” to show them you really like them.
We’ll ask about your relationship goals, personal interests, hobbies and more.
From everything you tell us, we’ll fine-tune your future matches, as we’re always looking to improve your It’s Just Lunch experience.
You create a username and fill out a very long profile, which you can link to your Instagram account if you choose (which is, admittedly, almost Facebook).
You can also choose to make your answers public and note how important they are to you.
All options, including those for accessing the settings and viewing profiles, are located in a slide-out menu.
If you and someone have both swiped right on one another, a screen will appear showing that you’ve matched and inviting you to send them a message.
But most of the time, the Tinder experience will consist of flicking through profiles like channels on the television.
