Poor celebrities, they may be popular in real life, but they just can’t seem to find a date on Tinder. It must be hard being rich, beautiful, and swiped to the left. Thankfully, Tinder is in the process of introducing verified accounts which will be able to help the rich and famous find a date.
For anyone unfamiliar with Tinder, the matchmaking app allows its users to sort through a list of potential hookups in your immediate vicinity and decide whether or not they’re interested. If you like someone’s profile you swipe to the right to add them to your list, but if you don’t like them, you discard them by swiping left. With only pictures and a short bio to go on, Tinder users make decisions based on whatever info they have available.
Let’s say you’re flipping through a list of possible matches and that guy from Two and a Half Men pops up in front of you. Most people will just assume this is a fake account, and that’s the problem for celebrity Tinder users like Ashton Kutcher and Lindsay Lohan. Thankfully, Tinder is ready to put an end to this very serious problem; the app’s CEO Sean Rad explained to The Hollywood Reporter that verification would soon be put into place for Tinder’s celebrity users.
