What is Swipe Surge on Tinder?

ROAST, get more matches

Swipe Surge is a feature on Tinder that notifies you when there is an increase in users in your region. During this time, you get to match with recent and active users.  

Tinder lets you know when a Swipe Surge is happening through notifications. Not only that, if someone is active during this period, you’ll find a Swipe Surge badge on their profile.

Using Tinder during a Swipe Surge is guaranteed to get you a match. In fact, you’re 250% likelier to match with someone than regular hours, and you can start a convo with someone 33% faster.

To participate in Swipe Surge, you need to go into your Tinder settings and activate it. Tinder will also let you know that there’s a Swipe Surge happening, so make sure to keep your notifications active.

The Right Time

While Swipe Surges can appear to be random, there is a method to its madness. The below are the most likely times you’ll come across surges.

  • Holidays
  • Festivals
  • Parades
  • Sporting Events
  • Sundays and Monday nights

The Right Location

Swipe Surges are common in large cities like Los Angeles or New York. If you live in a rural area or reside outside of a city, you’ll likely not experience surges.

ROAST, make your profile work

Easier to Get a Conversation Started

Don’t waste time playing games when you get a match. Girls with Swipe Surge badges are likely active, so message them right away. There’s a high likelihood you may land yourself a cute date (or two).

Visibility Boost

I know we have harped on this point, but it’s important to stress this again. THE VISIBILITY BOOSTS YOU GET DURING A SWIPE SURGE ARE INSANE! Many more girls than usual will Like you. So keep your eyes open for notifications during the event.

Good Way to Relax and Have Fun

Tinder can sometimes get stressful when you don’t have the power of Tinder Platinum, Gold, Boosts, Super Boosts, and Super Likes, and you get no matches.

Luckily with Swipe Surge, you don’t need the above features - you’ll get plenty of matches naturally (provided you have a good bio and a good set of pics).

Then you can relax and have fun texting the girls you match with. And who knows, you may meet someone really cool and go on a date with her (and maybe more after that;)).

How long does Swipe Surge Last?

Swipe Surges can last for minutes or hours. There isn’t really a fixed time for this, and it all depends on a) the number of users participating and b) how long they stay online.

Should You Use A Tinder Boost During a Swipe Surge?

Don’t use Tinder Boost During a Swipe Surge. The boost gained during the event is plenty effective, and you’ll just waste Boosts if you use them up.

Should You Use Super Likes During a Swipe Surge?

It is not necessary to use Super Likes during a surge; you’ll get a natural boost from the event anyway.
