It is ever appropriate to be dating and be on Tinder?
There is a gray area at the start of any relationship. It’s the stage when you may be seeing other people, but you haven’t actually talked about it.
Initial dating isn’t truly committed dating. You’re getting to know each other and there is no actual anticipation of anything coming of it.
Sure, you have hopes, but you can’t be upset with someone you’ve gone on a few dates with, if you find out they’re talking to other people. If they assured you they weren’t, well, that’s a different thing. [Read: The talking stage – What is it and how to move to the next one]
So, is it ever appropriate to be on Tinder and be dating?
If it’s the start and you’ve not talked where you are in the relationship, then it’s possibly alright. If you’ve spoken about it and they’ve claimed they’ve come off Tinder, then no, it’s not OK to covertly be swiping in their leisure time. It’s not okay for you to be doing it either.

However, there comes a time when Tinder needs to be a thing of the past. Knowing how to find out whether someone is on Tinder isn’t that hard in actuality, but seeing their face on the app isn’t going to make you feel good. If you’ve been together for a long or you’ve spoken about being exclusive and you’ve agreed not to see other people, Tinder shouldn’t have a place in your relationship.
Some folks get somewhat hooked to the software. It’s almost like a rush of adrenaline when you match with someone and you get a message from them. It’s affirmation that you’ve still got it. Does it make it right to be swiping when you’re with someone? Not at all. The adrenaline highs you experience should be coming from your spouse, not an app.
So, it it okay to be on Tinder and dating? It depends on the stage, but beyond the very first stages of dating then no, Tinder is NOT appropriate. [Read: Talking versus Dating – How to tell them difference and know your precise situation]
It Works (Sometimes) (Sometimes)
I tested this on two pals.
One of which is a buddy of mine (Jesse) who is visiting Argentina.
This is the same Jesse, by the way, that produced Endless Options.
Which is the hands down greatest course on Tinder.
That educates how to meet model-quality ladies.
Even if you look like him haha.
(Short, brown, and balding.)
With his initial name, age, and the city he was in…
I was able to find him with little trouble.
Then I tried it with a female I’m presently seeing.
She was practically seated in front of me when I performed the search.
“Less than a mile away.”
Cheaterbuster was not able to find her.
Even with her name, age, and EXACT ADDRESS she was seated at.
It costs $10 to perform a search.
Although they provide bundles of 3 searches for $6 which is pretty excellent.
It’s still a little upsetting that the app missed her.
But… it might not have been the applications fault.
She hasn’t used her Tinder actively account in months.
But she has one.
But no matters who’s fault it is…
You’re still spending money to run it.
Searching for Someone on Tinder by the Town
So it turns out you can’t look by state.
I wanted to test if I could locate myself if I placed in my present town.
So I went back, and did the Tinder search again.
This time putting in the city I’m currently in.
I went ahead and conducted the search and got a list of all the males called Marc in my region.
All of which were my exact age, or one year older or younger.
Which is actually a cool feature.
Because it implies you don’t need to know the precise age.
Just a pretty crisp assessment.
I went through the results and again — I didn’t locate myself.
Now it’s worth emphasizing that I recently turned 32.
So, when I typed my age in to cheaterbuster, I made a mistake.
I put up my age as 31.
This shouldn’t have been a problem…
As the app identifies persons within 1 year older or younger.
Had I put my age in as 32, I would have appeared in the results.
As it turns out this isn’t the applications fault — it’s Tinders.
To assist safeguard it’s users.
The Tinder API offers a “range” of dates for a users birthday.
When a 3rd party app asks the information.
What this implies is you need to make sure you nail the correct age when you search.
Because if you’re a year older or younger…
Then the Tinder API might spoil everything for you.
sEver wondered: can you discover someone on Tinder by phone number?
Here’s the quick answer: Yes, you absolutely can search Tinder by phone number.
Even while Tinder makes it apparent that you can only search up a certain individual if you’re already paired with him or her, you actually can check up anyone provided you know their phone number.
If you’re weary of meaningless swiping, inadvertently swiped left on a prospective match, or didn’t get a second date with your Tinder match, this one’s especially for you.
But before you rejoice, you might want to consider about how private Tinder truly is.
Yes. It’s feasible to find someone on Tinder using a phone number, just not directly in the app itself.
Use these techniques to find someone on Tinder using their phone number:
Method 1: Use a free People Search Service
Accidentally erased your discussion with a match on Tinder? If you know their phone number, you might attempt reconnecting via a People Search Service.
Persons search services are essentially search engines that scan through public records for people that meet your search parameters.
Radaris and SpokeoSearch are two free people Search Services that allow you to perform online search queries without having to establish a new account.
Spokeo, for example, may expose not just a person’s personal data and contact details, but also their location history and court records.
Radaris also provides similar functionality, and allows users to reverse lookup phone numbers.
Take notice though, that both services only operate if your Tinder Match is residing or located in the USA and US foreign territories.
What this implications for Tinder phone number privacy
It’s possible for anyone who already knows your phone number to search up your Tinder profile using the techniques above.
This implies you should be extra-careful while providing your phone number on Tinder.
Tinder does not expose your phone number even if you want to sign up for an account using your phone number.
But your phone number might still be revealed if:syou share it with someone as a Tinder messagesyou opt to openly post it on your bio.
If you want to show a phone number for easier discussions and hookups, try acquiring a burner phone number from Phoner instead of revealing your own phone number.
Also, you’d want to be extra-careful before providing your actual phone number with any Tinder match. If you’re still dubious about someone, keep to utilizing a temporary second phone number initially.
Finding a Tinder Account
If you’ve just made a fresh Tinder account for spying, you may be curious to discover someone in particular. There are two techniques to hunt out a Tinder account. The first one takes a lot of time, the second one may yield erroneous results, but if you have enough knowledge about the person, it’s actually very fantastic.
Option 1 – Search Tinder
Get a cool drink and find a comfy spot to sit — this is going to take a long
Open Tinder and modify your options to filter down your matches — age, location, etc.
Swipe left until you find their account
Option 2 – Search the InternetsType “www.gotinder.com/@*username*,” of course, type their username and not the actual word.
Snoop out information from their other social media sites to enhance the probability you’ll pull the perfect Tinder profile
This won’t provide you any information on a person on Tinder but it is good for finding out whether a person has a profile. For example, if you’ve been married for 10 years and learn that your spouse has a Tinder profile, it may raise some doubts about their actions.
Assuming you’ve discovered the perfect match and no longer require the service, be sure to totally remove your Tinder profile else, your other half may think you’re up to something you aren’t. Even if your account is dormant, you may come up in a search someplace, or your account might be hijacked without you knowing.
