If you’re tired of the endless swiping game on Tinder, we’ve got some electrifying news for you. The dating juggernaut is about to unveil an exciting, invite-only subscription service that’s set to revolutionize the way you connect with others.
Tinder is venturing into new territory, taking on the likes of Raya and catering to the top 1 percent of the global dating pool. Welcome to Tinder Select—a VIP experience like no other, but here’s the catch: it’s not for just any Tom, Dick, or Harry.
For the exclusive price of $499 per month, you could unlock the doors to Tinder Select, but only if you receive the golden invitation. This isn’t your ordinary Tinder; it’s an elite club reserved for the crème de la crème of Tinder’s most active users.
According to Bloomberg, this rarefied group will enjoy the privilege of messaging people they haven’t even matched with. Mark Van Ryswyk, Tinder’s chief product officer, explained, “We know that there is a subset of highly engaged and active users who prioritize more effective and efficient ways to find connections. So we engaged in extensive tests and feedback with this audience over the past several months to develop a completely new offering.”
The rollout of invitations for Tinder Select will commence over the coming months. But here’s the exciting twist: to secure your spot in this elite circle, you’ll need to pass Tinder’s rigorous five-point screening system.
Your profile picture must be verified, you should have four additional photos, a captivating biography, at least five listed interests, and clarity about what you’re seeking on the app. Once you’re approved, you’ll proudly sport a Select badge on your profile picture, although you can choose to keep your VIP status discreet.
Owned by Match Group, Tinder aims to attract a select few with this premium service, fully aware that it won’t appeal to the masses. However, when subscribers are willing to invest hundreds per month, it’s a promising sign for their revenue targets.
For non-Select users, there’s an option to opt-out of receiving messages from unmatched individuals. Plus, Tinder Select offers ‘increased visibility’ of your profile, ensuring you stand out in the dating crowd.
It’s a thrilling development in the world of online dating, and we’re eager to see how many users will embrace this new system while still exploring the lower-tiered pricing options, starting at $24.99. Swipe like a VIP, and let the romantic adventures unfold!
