Are you wondering if that cute guy from your gym is on Tinder? If only you could match with him, then you could get coffee and things could really take off between the two of you. Or perhaps you are looking to catch the girl you are dating on Tinder. First things first, you will need to know how to search people on Tinder.
What is Tinder?
Tinder is a dating app that utilizes a swiping approach to finding your match. Swipe left if you’re not interested and swipe right if you are. If both parties swipe right on each other they can connect and start chatting with each other.
Tinder is free to use, but offers premium features if you need unlimited swiping in a 24 hour period. It is a great tool if you are looking to casually break the ice with someone. But it could be devastating to find your significant other on Tinder looking to hook up.
Since it is a free app, the people that go on it aren’t usually serious about commitment. It has gained a reputation for being used for booty calls. I haven’t heard of many marriages happening from Tinder connections. But I have heard from a lot of people finding out their S.O. is on Tinder and needing to catch them in the act with a catfish.
How To Search People On Tinder
If you’re looking to find someone specific on Tinder to either match with them or prove they are a cheater you’ll want to know how to search for them. The best way to answer that question is to have patience.
Make a new profile so you can be sure you haven’t already swiped past them. Edit your parameters to include their age and location demographics. Swipe left over and over again until Tinder cuts you off from swiping, unless you pay for the unlimited swipes, then go crazy. Note: if you are trying to catch someone in the act, you’ll want to use someone else’s picture to lure them in. But if you are using this to make a genuine connection mix flattering selfies (no duck lips) and some photos that show your personality.
Keep swiping until you’ve landed on the person you’ve been searching for. Take photos of the profile if you need to prove your S.O. is on there, because they will definitely lie about it. Now don’t swipe left, because you can’t go back unless you have the premium account. Swipe right and wait for the magical sound of the match notification to be made.
This process can take a very long time, so the key is to have patience. And while you’re at it if you see someone you like, swipe right! But the truth is, the person you are searching for may not have a Tinder profile. In that case we have a solution for you.
Run a Person Search
When your Tinder search efforts come out a bust, run a Kiwi Search. Our people search engine will give you access to phone numbers, email addresses, social media profiles, current & previous address, job & education history and much more. It will also let you know if that person you are crushing on has a criminal record or is a sex offender. Or if Mr. Right has a Mrs. Right waiting for him at home while he is out there swiping away on dating sites.
Tinder can be a lot of fun, to flirt with someone you think is attractive, but do yourself a favor and find out who the person is behind the photos. Save yourself the heartbreak and risk being scammed. The next time you see someone you think is cute, go up to them the old fashioned way and introduce yourself…..and then find out their first and last name and run it through Kiwi Searches, just to be safe.
