This article will explain everything you need to know about what blind date is, and how you can get started using it — and well as whether it's worth giving a try.

But if you're a regular dating app user, we think you'll appreciate this change of pace from the usual swiping experience.

What is the new blind date feature on Tinder?

ROAST, make your profile work

The idea behind this feature is that it gives you a chance to connect with other users through conversation before you ever get distracted by their looks.

Bringing an element of mystery to the dating app, you need to figure out if this is someone you'd like to get to know better BEFORE you get to see their pictures.

Have you ever wondered why Dating apps are working for your friends but not you?

It's hard to know what makes a dating profile attractive, and even harder to know which pictures are good or not.

With our AI-trained on 10,000+ pictures rated by hot girls and dating experts, we can help you to choose your best pics and stand out.

Make your dating profile more attractive in just 2 minutes.

Two things before reseting your account

To access blind date, you'll need to check out the "Explore" section of Tinder during prime dating time — from 6 pm to midnight, your local time.

Tinder's Explore section is an attempt to make using the app a bit more playful and has featured game-style interactions that can lead to a match with other Tinder users. The new blind date feature is part of Fast Chat — another Explore option.

Just like a real life blind date, you never know what you're going to get.

The Fast Chat feature brings games and other playful elements to the Tinder dating experience. Other features include "Hot Takes" and "Swipe Night."

Similiar to how the blind date experience brings users together through conversation, both Hot Takes and Swipe Night get people talking.

ROAST, fix your profile

Tinder starts you off with a series of icebreaker questions they use to get a sense of who might be a good fit. These multiple choice questions include controversial topics such as asking how many times it's ok to wear a shirt before washing it or admitting private details about your sandwich condiment usage.

Based on answers to these multiple choice prompts, Tinder decides which two people to drop into a conversation.

Want to get a blue checkmark on your Tinder profile to show that you're verified? Here is how.

Once two people are matched based on their ice breaker answers, they've got just thirty seconds to have a conversation before deciding to swipe right or left. Because it's a timed chat, you really need to make the most of it!

If you swipe right and get a match, then you'll have access to the other person's full profile information and pictures. And if you swipe left, you'll be given another conversation partner and you can start all over again.

Despite the time limit on chat, Tinder claims the blind date feature is a low pressure way for people to connect on the app.

Have someone specific that you want to find on Tinder but don't know how to search? Here is how.

Small aside. Did you know it is possible to make your profile more attractive in 2 minutes and get more matches every day?

Thanks to our Artificial Intelligence trained on 10,000+ pictures rated by hot girls, you will be able to access personalized feedback and tips to boost your dating profile for good.

You will know exactly which pictures are good or not, and most importantly why.

So, what are you waiting for to take charge of your dating life?

ROAST, get more matches

If you're looking for this new feature and you can't find it, make sure your Tinder app is up to date. Tinder is always rolling out new features (and fixing bugs) so it's worth updating the app on a regular basis.

You also need to make sure you're on the app during the blind date hours, so mark your calender if you don't want to miss out.

Finally, Tinder has only rolled out the blind date feature in the US so far. They claim it will be available worldwide in the coming weeks.

According to Tinder's early testing, people using the new feature landed more matches than with traditional swiping. In fact, they put the number as high as 40% more matches! With numbers like that, it can't hurt to give the new blind date experience a chance. And we've got to admit, it does sound surprisingly fun.
