Tinder, the most popular dating app, allows you to connect with people from all over the world without having to spend a single dime. However, can you use Tinder without paying and find what you want?

The answer is yes. Although the free version does not offer all the features, with patience and strategy, you can find matches and meet interesting people. We tell you all the details below.

How to use Tinder without paying

Using Tinder for free is quite simple. First, download the app from your device's official app store. Once you install it, create your profile with your best photo and a description that showcases your personality. Remember that first impressions are important, so make the best of it.

Now comes the important part: searching for matches. With the free version, you have a daily limit on the number of profiles you can swipe to the right (which is how you indicate to other users that you like them). This is where patience comes into play. Take your time to review each profile and calmly decide if you want to give it a like or move on by swiping left.

Once you have your matches, the fun part comes: chatting. There are no limits here, so take the chance to engage in interesting conversations and get to know your matches better. Be creative and show interest in what the other person has to say. And if you do not know how to start a conversation on Tinder, you can always say something creative that goes beyond the traditional greeting.

If you have already matched on Tinder, it's time for you to learn how to chat on Tinder for free. The good news is that you can take full advantage of this feature without spending a penny.

To start chatting on Tinder, go straight to the message icon on the bottom right of the screen, choose your match, and start typing. You can also type or send an emoji from the screen after receiving the “It's a Match” notification.

You can start the conversation in a friendly and casual way, asking about interests you have in common or commenting something about their photos. And, remember, the most important thing is to have fun.

How to see who likes you on Tinder for free

While you cannot see who has liked your profile on Tinder without paying, there are ways to get an idea of who might be interested in you. One way is to pay attention to the like notifications you receive on your smartphone; this usually gives you a hint by randomly mentioning the person's name.

However, if you're eager to find out who that person is who has shown interest in you in a more detailed way, or just want to take a look at their profile and maybe see some of their additional photos, you must subscribe to one of the premium plans, either Tinder Plus, Tinder Gold, or Tinder Platinum.

Yes, you can use Tinder for free, but like everything else, it has some features that are unavailable in the free version. For example, the likes are limited, you will only have 25 to 50 likes available every 12 hours, while in the premium versions, they are unlimited.

You will also not be able to know who has liked you until you like them back, nor change your location to look for people in other cities, let alone rewind if you swiped left by mistake on someone interesting.

In addition, you will not have access to Super Like or Boost, very useful features that help you stand out from the crowd, especially if you are looking to get the attention of someone in particular.
