These days it isn’t uncommon to find love via Tinder, but sadly, it also isn’t uncommon for some people to continue to look for something better on Tinder even if they are in a relationship. So, how do you know if your partner is still on the prowl?
Well, one woman on TikTok has claimed she knows a surefire way to tell whether your boyfriend or girlfriend is still swiping right on the app, and her warning has gone viral.
The user, who goes by@trinniiitty, shared a post titled “spreading the knowledge,” in which she informed folks, "Just a PSA, if they're like 'oh yeah that's an old Tinder account they saw, I deleted the app a long time ago,” adding, "Tinder only shows profiles that have been active within seven days..."
The post has since been viewed more than 2.4 million times, and it seems there is some truth to her warning. According to an explanation about their algorithms, Tinder notes, "We prioritize potential matches who are active, and active at the same time," adding, “We don’t want to waste your time showing you profiles of inactive members. We want you chatting and meeting IRL."
- But one person did note that the@trinniiitty’s post isn’t completely true. That person says that “if someone is swiping A LOT they can hit inactive profiles eventually." So if your friend did see your partner’s profile, you may want to ask them how much they swipe before you confront your S.O.
