And if you’re single and dating in Madrid, or any other large city in Spain, you owe it to yourself to swipe a few profiles. You’ll likely find a few hot locals you want to swipe right on, match, and message.
While it’s got a reputation as a more casual dating app, more and more people are looking for serious relationships, and even marriage, on it.
If you don’t think you’ll be swiping right on more than 100 profiles in a 12-hour time span, you can get away with using the app for free.
The Passport feature allows you to change your location and swipe through profiles of users anywhere in the world. That means you can start arranging dates in Barcelona before you’ve left Valencia.
That’s not the only perk you get for upgrading. Here are the other highlights, plus what you get for going one step up and opting for Tinder Gold:
When anyone who meets your search criteria comes within the distance parameters you set (up to 90 kilometers), their profile appears in your feed. You’ll also see a timeline of who’s crossed your path, when, where, and how often.
Simply “like” any profiles that catch your eye, and you’ll form a “Crush” with any singles who like you back. Once that happens, you can exchange messages.
You can also use this dating app to get last-minute dates. In the “I’m Free To” section, you can choose an activity you’d like to do that day, such as go out, get a drink, catch a movie, etc.
Then, for the next 6 hours, other Happn users who come into range can take you up on your date idea. Responding requires spending a credit, which can be purchased 10/$1.99 or earned as you complete various milestones within the app.
Since your Happn match queue is 100% based on people who pass within relatively close proximity to you, it’s best for people living, working in, or visiting heavily populated areas.
