You may have recently stumbled onto a new Tinder feature.
And you’re not really sure what it is or how to use it to get more matches.
That’s why I’m about to tell you the best way to use Tinder Vibes.In this article:More...
Important: Quickly letting you know I found the best opener EVER. Its psychologically irresistible to ignore. I made a video explaining how to use it and it's 'clickbait-principle' with screenshot examples. Check it out here.
What is Tinder Vibes?
Tinder Vibes lets you see if you ‘Vibe’ with a person before liking their profile. After answering a series of personal questions, you’ll be recommended to other people with similar answers.
So instead of swiping people based on their looks, you can potentially match with people based on their personality.
And once you do, you’ll already have a few things in common.
How does Tinder Vibes work?
Firstly, the feature is free to use for everyone. But Vibes isn’t something that’s always available, it’s a mini-game that recurs every so often.
Once it does, you’ll be invited to participate through a pop-up. And if you choose to play, you’ll be given a multiple-choice question.
Your answers will be shown on your profile.
Tinder always invites everyone in the same region. In that way, Tinder Vibes is a live experience.
And whoever plays the Vibes quiz at the same time will see the same questions.
Did you complete your Vibe quiz?
Then you can return to the swipe stack and see other people who picked the same answer as you.
Now you have ‘mutual vibes’.
Did you match someone with mutual vibes? Then you can click on their profile and discover all their answers to the quiz.
Although mutual vibes won’t guarantee you hit it off, the new feature does make it a little easier to get the conversational ball rolling.
Not only can you talk about what you have in common, you can also tease them for picking an answer you disagree with.
A Tinder Vibe event lasts for 48 hours and you can join as long as it’s still live. Your answers, however, will be displayed for a total of 72 hours.
How do I know there is a Tinder Vibes event?
You’ll be alerted of new Vibe events through push notifications if you have it turned on. Otherwise, you’ll get notified right after booting up the app.
And if you somehow missed the pop-ups, you can see the event is live by checking your swipe stack. Everyone will have a colorful border.
Still not able to participate?
Then it’s possible you haven’t opted in. See the details on how to do that in the next tip.
How do I enable Vibes on your profile?
1. Open up Tinder and go to your profile screen.
2. Go into settings.
3. Click on Manage Vibes and turn on Participate in Vibes.
This is obviously also the same place where you can deactivate vibes if you don’t want to participate.
How do you play Tinder Vibes?
If you’ve seen the Vibes notification, all you have to do is go to your swiping screen.
Once there, you’ll instantly be taken to the Vibes game.
Which is impossible to miss.
What happens after I play Tinder Vibes?
After you finish the Vibes multiple choice, your answers will be shown beneath your profile for 72 hours.
But that’s not all.
Once you match, you can see each other’s Vibes (see the bottom of the next screenshot).
As you can see, we’ve got two ‘mutual vibes’ in common, but we are different when it comes to feeling the most energized.
She’s a night owl and I’m a morning person.
If I’d like, I could pick one of her vibe answers and comment on it as a way to break the ice.
This is how Vibes makes it easier to start and maintain a convo.
Here’s a screenie of how I used Vibes to send the first text to a Tinder match:
The traditional ways to break the ice obviously still apply:
- 33 Best first Tinder message examples
- 41 Best Tinder icebreakers that (almost) always get a response
Moving onto the next tip.
What are the best Vibe answers?
I won’t bullshit you.
The best Vibe answers are authentic answers.
What answer do you genuinely feel represents you most as a person?
Pick that one.
The reason the genuine answer is the best is because you want to be liked for who you are.
Suppose you pick all the answers that some dating guru told you to pick.
Maybe you’ll get better matches than usual (highly doubtful), but once you go out on a date she’ll quickly realize that you’re not the person who you said you were.
Now she doesn’t want to see you again and you’re back to square one.
So forget about choosing the ‘best’ answers and just be yourself.
If she does the same, there’s a far bigger chance you’ll hit it off on the date.
This is all you need to know about Tinder Vibes, but before I wrap it up I want to help you get the most out of the new feature.
That’s why I’m giving you the 10 Best Texts That Always Work.
Although the Vibe answers will help you build rapport and a stronger connection, it does nothing to help you plan the date.
