Messaging before matching is a new way to express interest in a potential match by attaching a message to your Super Like. When you leave a message for your potential match, they’ll see it on your profile before they Like or Nope. Say something eye-catching or tell them why you Liked them (in 140 characters or less)!
How do I send a message before matching?
To attach a message to your Super Like, simply tap the blue star icon while viewing someone’s profile to Super Like them. You’ll be presented with an option to compose and attach a message, or you can continue with a classic Super Like. Quick note - when composing your message, make sure it’s 140 characters or less before sending.
How do I send a Super Like without attaching a message?
To use Super Like without attaching a message, tap the blue star icon while viewing someone’s profile. Once you see the prompt asking if you’d like to attach a message, simply exit out of this and you’ll be able to continue with a classic Super Like.
Only Tinder Platinum subscribers can send a message before matching. At the moment, Tinder Platinum is only available as an upgrade for Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold members.
