Spring breakers: Ready to find your Biscayne “bae”?
A new feature from the popular dating app Tinder may allow you to do just that.
The mobile app is rolling out a new “spring break mode” that will allow vacationers headed to a particular destination the opportunity to “match” with users who are headed to the same place.
Miami and Fort Lauderdale are among the top destinations where the feature is being rolled out, along with Daytona Beach, Las Vegas, the Bahamas, Cancun, Jamaica and more.
Tinder users can swipe left or right on a person’s profile to “match” with someone. Swiping left represents disinterest, while swiping right indicates romantic interest.
To use “spring break mode,” the user first selects the app’s “spring break card,” then chooses what city they’re venturing to. Once enabled, potential matches will also have their spring break destinations displayed on their profiles.
"We’ll show you the location your potential matches are headed right on their profiles, so you can match and chat before you pack your bags and go," a Tinder blog post said.
“Spring Break mode highlights classic spring break hot spots,” a spokesperson said, adding that the company consulted Tinder U users and analyzed swiping activity during March 2018 to pick the destinations.
The new feature rolled out on March 4 and will be available until March 31.
