Over the last ten years, Tinder has introduced several features that make it easier to “match” with people. After matching, you can get into a brief conversation with the person on the other side to decide whether they’re worth meeting up with — or if they’re real at all. In 2013, Tinder introduced its primary function: swiping. Soon after, in 2015, they introduced the Super Like function. Let’s get into that a bit more as we review what the blue star means on Tinder.

What does the blue star mean on Tinder?

When someone’s profile appears in your feed on Tinder, you can do several things. If you’re a Tinder Gold subscriber, you can tap the reverse arrow to go to a previous profile. You can tap the red X (or swipe left) if you aren’t interested in that person. You can tap the green heart (or swipe right) if you’re interested in matching with that person. You can tap the purple lightning bolt to activate a “Boost,” which makes you a top profile in your area for 30 minutes.

You can also tap the blue star — or swipe upwards — to “Super Like” that Tinder profile.

What is a Super Like on Tinder?

A Super Like on Tinder is when you tap the blue star button (or swipe up) on somebody’s Tinder profile. If you Super Like someone, that person will see that you like them when you appear in their Tinder feed. This may positively or negatively influence their decision to swipe left or right.

No. They used to give you a set number of free Super Likes per week. however, today, Super Likes are only available to paid subscribers.

The other way to Super Like someone is to swipe up on that person’s Tinder profile. When their card comes up, just tap, hold, and drag upwards on their Tinder card.
