Can I see who liked me on Tinder without paying?
Most dating apps have pay-bands, and Tinder is no different. While you can download the app for free, you can also pay a subscription for some perks.
One of those perks for subscribers on Tinder is the fact that, if you pay, you get to see who liked you. If you use the free version of the app, then you don’t get to see.
When it comes to Super Liking, which we’ll describe further in detail later, all you need to know at the moment is that you get one free Super Like per day on the free version of Tinder.
If you want more Super Likes, you can pay for Tinder Plus or Tinder Gold to send up to five Super Likes a day. You can also just buy individual Super Likes by going through Settings on Tinder.
There are a couple of ways to hack your way around, but you need to do it on a computer instead of a phone.
How do you know if someone super liked you?
When liking someone isn’t quite enough, you can Super Like them on Tinder. You’ll show up in their cardstock as a Super Like, and they’ll know that you’re super interested.
If someone really likes the look of you, they can do the same and send you a Super Like. And if you’ve been Super Liked, it means your potential match wants to show you that you stand out.
If you haven’t turned off your Tinder notifications on your phone, when you get Super Liked, the dating app will send you a notification, telling you that it’s your lucky day.
Once you open the app and get to your cardstock, you’ll see a profile with a bright blue border around the edge and a blue star on it.
The blue-bordered profile with a blue star is the person who Super Liked you. You might have to swipe through a few profiles before you get to the blue-bordered profile.
Tinder’s algorithm works well, though, and it pushes the Super Liked profile up near the top of your card stack so you won’t have to spend ages swiping right before you see the person’s profile who Super Liked you.
When you Super Like someone’s profile on Tinder, your profile shows up in their card stack with the bright blue border and star.
Super Liking is a great way to send a clear message. It shows the potential match that they stand out.
It’s like asking someone out on a date before even buying them a drink. You’re showing all your cards, so use Super Likes with discretion.
What happens when you get super liked on Tinder?
When you get a notification telling you that you’ve been Super Liked, you’re obviously going to want to see who it’s from.
All you have to do is tap the notification, open the app, and swipe through a few matches until you hit a profile with that bright blue outline and bright blue star.
It’s up to you if you want to swipe right or not. If you like what you see on their profile and like them back by swiping right, it’s an immediate match, and you start messaging.
If you don’t like what you see, no worries, just swipe left and keep searching for the special one.
When you find someone who fires you up, it’s your turn to send them a Super Like and hope for the best.
People use the Tinder Super Like to up their chances of success. And from what we can see, it works.
If you want to improve your chances of getting someone you like to swipe right and start messaging with you, sending a Super Like is a proven tactic in getting matches.
According to Tinder, their data shows that people who use Super Likes are three times more likely to get the match they’re looking for.
What does it mean if there is a blue star on Tinder?
Sometimes when you’re swiping through your card stack on Tinder, you come across someone’s profile, and it has a blue border and blue star on it. This means they’ve Super Liked you.
First of all, take a second to savor the moment and enjoy the compliment. Then take a look at their profile. Like what you see? Swipe right and start flirting.
Seeing a blue star in your card stack is a great way to make you sit up and pay closer attention to this person’s profile than the few hundred previous profiles you swiped through.
It means they see something in your bio or profile pictures they like the look of.
It makes you want to find out what they liked about you – conversations on Tinder initiated by a Super Like last, on average 70% longer than regular swipe-right matches.
Super Liked Tinder
It doesn’t matter if you’re using regular Tinder, Tinder Plus, or Tinder Gold, Super Likes are an important part of the dating app game.
Even if you pay for a subscription and get five Super Likes to use per day, they’re still hot commodities compared to the hundreds, if not thousands, of profiles you swipe through.
Super Likes on Tinder are worth their weight in gold. Use the blue stars sparingly, and they’ll fast track you to the top of that special person’s card stack.
Think about how it makes you feel when someone Super Likes you; it’s a powerful way to let someone know you think they are something a little out of the ordinary.
