Tinder Vibes Explained: What It Means & How To Use It! [2022 Edition]

With Vibes, you’ll answer a series of questions about your personality, like “Would you rather always be 10 minutes late or 20 minutes early?” or “Do you prefer podcasts or playlists?”. Your Tinder profile will be temporarily updated to show off your answers and more of who you are.

What is Tinder Vibes? Full Walkthrough & Breakdown (2021)

Tinder Vibes Meaning

Back when the feature first launched, Tinder explained a vibe is “that feeling about someone that hits instantly” when they reveal the two of you have something specific in common.

According to Tinder’s VP of Product Udi Milo, the feature gives users a more dynamic way to express an aspect of their personality in a profile.

And because of how it works, it also makes figuring out what to say in your first Tinder message a lot easier. More on that coming up!

How The Vibes Feature Works

The feature is free for everyone – no subscription to Tinder Plus, Gold or Platinum is required to participate. Vibes is a periodic event, much like Tinder’s Swipe Surge.

You’ll get a push notification or pop-up card inviting you to join when an event is active in your area.

Each Vibe event has a theme, and all the users who opt in answering the same question. The questions cover a wide range of topics like pop culture, cooking, dating, and more.

For instance, the “Date Night” Vibe lets you share your answers to questions about your perfect date with potential matches.

Next you’ll be presented with a handful of Vibe questions that each have four answers. Select the answer you’d like to share with potential matches by tapping on it.

When you’re swiping through profiles during the Vibes event, you’ll see a colorful border around them to indicate the Vibe is live.

Tinder Vibes events last for 48 hours, and you can join in at any point during that window. Answers are displayed on participating users’ profiles for 72 hours. You’ll see a countdown clock in the upper right hand corner that shows you how much time is left to vibe with people.

If you both swipe right, you can check out all their answers to the Tinder Vibes questions by scrolling through them on the “It’s A Match!” screen.
