Just by entering the span of distance, within which you want to meet your soulmate, you will start seeing profiles and by randomly swiping, you will be able to express your likes and dislikes. Many people who entered distances of 500 kilometers met a variety of people and could select amongst them, because more the distance, more the people and more the choices you have.
By swiping right you express interest in a profile and if the same person swipes right on your profile, you get a ‘Match’. Now you can start talking to him or her online and will get to know more about each other from a distance. People write excellent bios and put nice pictures of them, to attract their counterparts. Tinder is registered to have 1 million swipes every day. It was started in 2012.
