What are Tinder Read Receipts?

Just as the name implies, Tinder Read Receipts lets you know if the person you’re chatting with has seen your messages. It gives you an idea if they’re still interested in chatting with you.

How do you know if someone read your message on Tinder?

Even when you use Read Receipts, Tinder obviously can’t tell if they’ve read your last texts. But the dating app can detect if the recipient has viewed your last exchange.

How does Tinder Read Receipts work?

Tinder Read Receipts are a paid future that’s not included in any membership. Premium or free.

To get access to Read Receipts, users have to buy them separately in packages of 5, 10, or 20.

Activating them for a conversation with a Tinder match counts as one use, no matter how many texts you send.

IMPORTANT: Users can disable Read Receipts to maintain their privacy. So it’s possible that you won’t be able to activate your Read Receipts in your last conversation even though you’ve bought them.

What do Tinder Read Receipts look like?

Did you turn on Read Receipts? Then you can scroll down to your last exchange.

If your match saw it, then you’ll see ‘Read’ + a timestamp  underneath your last text.

Is Tinder Read Receipts worth it? – Conclusion

If you take ANYTHING away from this article, let it be this.

Knowing if a girl has seen your message doesn’t make much of a difference.

Reading ‘Seen’ may mean that she’s lost interest. But it could also mean that she got distracted with your chat open and forgot to reply.

And if she hasn’t seen your message, that doesn’t automatically suggest she’s still interested either. She may be ignoring your texts on purpose.

So use your common sense to tell you what to do. Or use one of my many texting guides to steer you towards the date.
