If your mates’ dating game is as terrible online as it is IRL, then Tinder has just announced a feature that will have you looking like the perfect wingman and give your mate the ego stroke he needs.
While swiping through potential matches, Tinder’s new matchmaking feature means you may see the option to ‘share’ a profile you come across. Tapping the ‘share’ icon will allow you to send a temporary link via text to a friend, and give them the ability to swipe on the profile you shared. The link expires after 5 clicks or 72 hours (whichever comes first). A ticking Tinder time bomb, if you will.
If you swipe on a profile that’s been shared with you, your profile could appear in their recommendations – as long as you fit your potential match’s preferences. As always, if you both swipe right, it’s a match.
Hitch, eat your heart out.
