It turns out common folk aren’t the only ones turning to online dating. Celebrities are opening up and saying they have created their own online profiles to find that special someone. But the problem is when the regular Joe’s come across the profile of someone they’ve seen on the cover of a magazine they just aren’t buying it.
Most people say when a celebrity pops up they assume it’s a spam account and move on to the next person. Now one company is helping the rich and famous in their quest for love. Earlier this week Tinder launched verified profiles so you know what you’re seeing is the real deal.
Similar to Twitter and Facebook, you’ll see a badge attached to high profile users that confirms they are who they say they are. Tinder says the badges are for notable public figures, celebrities and athletes. This is part of Tinder’s upgrade that includes support from Instagram.
So give it a shot the next time you come across a famous face; talk about dating up.
