Tinder now allows users to share information about their date with family and friends

Afraid to go on your first Tinder date? Well, now you can share information about your potential match with your family and friends. Tinder has introduced a new feature called ‘Share My Date’. This feature allows users to notify their friends and family of their upcoming dates directly from the app. The new feature has been introduced keeping the safety and security of users in mind. Even though many people go on dates discreetly, it is always better to share the information about the person they are meeting with friends if one is not comfortable with family.

Many people already share their date plans with friends. More than half of singles under 30 (51 percent) and almost one in five Tinder users (18 percent) even tell their moms about their dates! Melissa Hobley, Tinder’s marketing boss, says they want to make dating fun, safe and respectful. She thinks sharing date plans is a fun tradition, and ‘Share My Date’ makes it easy.

“Share My Date” allows users to share details such as where and when the date will take place, as well as a photo of their match. They can choose who they share this with and can plan dates up to a month in advance. If plans change, they can update the information so everyone knows.

This new feature will launch in many countries in the coming months, including the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Singapore, India and more.

Paul Brunson, Tinder’s relationship expert, gives some tips to prepare for a date:

–Try new things: Dates don’t have to be the usual food and drinks. Find something you both enjoy, like a walk in the park or a cup of coffee.
–Share your plans: Let your friends and family know what your date plans are. Tinder’s “Share My Date” feature makes this easy, right from the app.
–Be yourself: Young people like it when someone is real. Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not. Values ​​such as respect and loyalty are important.
–Note: Put your phone away and focus on your date. It’s easy to get distracted, especially when you’re nervous. Be present and give them your full attention.
–Be kind: treat your date with respect. Even if it doesn’t turn into romance, you might make a new friend. Trust your feelings, and it’s okay to end the date if it’s not right for you.

With ‘Share My Date’, Tinder wants to make dating more open and help people have better and safer dates.
