Have you ever matched with someone on Tinder who isn’t on the same page as you? For example, you’re really into video games and they’ve never touched a game in their life. This happened a lot in the early days, but then Tinder introduced interests so people could connect over some common ground. With Top Picks, Tinder analyzes all of the local profiles and shows you the ones they believe to be “swipe-worthy.” Let’s talk about what Top Picks are on Tinder, as well as whether they’re worth it.


Top Picks on Tinder are basically Tinder's own matchmaking service; your Top Picks are the people Tinder thinks are the most swipe-worthy for you. This feature can only really be taken advantage of by Tinder Gold subscribers, as that will allow you to see who liked you.


What are Top Picks on Tinder?

On Tinder, many features have been added over the years to make matching (and avoidance) easier. Some of them are premium exclusives, and others are available for free.

Some features ride the line between free and premium. Super Likes was once in this category, where free users got a free Super Like per week. Today, Top Picks identify as both a free and premium feature.

Top Picks, as a feature, is basically Tinder playing matchmaker. Tinder will choose profiles that are seemingly best suited for you. These profiles are tagged as “Top Picks,” and will appear in the Top Picks section of the Gold Home tab.

All users receive one free Top Pick a day. Tinder Gold and Platinum subscribers see more Top Picks daily. Furthermore, if you pay for Tinder Gold or Tinder Platinum, you can pay even more to purchase additional Top Picks!

How to be a Top Pick on Tinder

There is no surefire way to become a Top Pick. You see, Top Picks are personalized based on accounts. If you like anime and someone else likes anime, you might appear as one of their Top Picks based on interest. The opposite goes for someone who might like working out; if you don’t add working out as an interest, you probably won’t show up in their Top Picks.

The best advice would be to flesh out your Tinder profile as much as possible. Add more photos and information to help Tinder’s algorithm find you for someone else’s Top Picks list. Be concise, but as detailed as possible.

Does Tinder tell you if you are a Top Pick?

No, Tinder does not tell you if you are a Top Pick. There is no way to know whether you appear as someone’s Top Pick.
