  • By tapping the green heart icon on the screen, users will send a "like" to the other profile

Those new to Tinder online dating might be confused by all the stars, check marks, swipe notes, and left and right-swiping.

As one of the best online dating apps, Tinder strives to improve the user experience by adding new features, however not all new users find them intuitive at first.

Though the platform is known for its 'swiping left and right' system and many users use it with ease, a small green heart at the bottom of each user's profile made users wonder what this option is all about.

If you are not familiar with Tinder's green heart option, don't worry we will explain everything in this blog post.

What is the green heart on Tinder?

The green heart on Tinder means swipe-right. When you click on the green heart you will send a like to someone else's profile.

So, instead of swiping right to match with someone, users can just tap on the green heart at the bottom of the screen.

As opposed to the green heart, the red ‘x’ button means ‘pass’ or simply explained it means that you don’t like someone, and you wouldn’t like to match with that person. People don't get notified when someone presses 'x' on their profiles.

Since the swiping system seems to work fine, many users have wondered why Tinder even integrated this feature.

It is not clear why Tinder has this feature, but it comes in handy when deciding whether or not to like someone, especially when you can easily get carried away with the swiping.

Accordingly, some believe users will spend a little bit more time checking out the profiles with the green heart integrated, instead of just swiping.
