How to adjust your tinder age range

When Tinder doesn’t display your correct age on your profile it can be annoying for two reasons. First, you always have to have it on your bio that you are actually not 89 years old and have your real age there.

The second one is the bigger problem, that 99% of people tend to have age filters applied, so because of this wrong age issue, your profile will never show up for most people if your age displayed on your profile is over 30 or 40 years old.

But don’t worry, in this blog post, we will show you how you can change your age on Tinder. We will also cover how to change your preferred age range and how you can hide your age on your Tinder account.

How to change your age on Tinder?

How to adjust your tinder age range

You have different options to change your age on Tinder and it depends on how you signed up for Tinder. If you don’t remember how you signed up you can test this by logging out and trying to login back to your profile. If you were able to login back with Facebook then your Tinder account is getting its name and age info from Facebook.

Change your age on Tinder when you signed up with Facebook

In this case you have to change your age in your Facebook account so that Tinder can pull your correct age from Facebook. To change your age in Facebook, do the following:

  1. Open up your Facebook app
  2. Go to your profile page
  3. Click “About” under your Facebook cover photo.
  4. You will see a new menu where you have tap on the Edit Basic Information part. This will open a page where you can change your date of birth
  5. Change your date of birth to the correct one from the drop-down menu.

Don’t panic if your age didn’t change right away on Tinder. You have to wait about 24 hours for the change to be active. Once a day passed, check your Tinder and it should now display the correct age. If you have recently changed your age on Facebook, Facebook might now allow you to change your age. In this case, wait a couple of days before trying to change it again.

Change your age on Tinder when you signed up with phone number

If you signed up with your phone number, unfortunately you only have one option. You have to delete your account and set up a new one and be very focused when you have to add your age, not to add a wrong age again.

You have to keep in mind that when you delete your Tinder account, you will also lose all of your existing matches, the conversation you had with them and everything else. However, you can also profit from starting up a new account, as new accounts get a so-called ‘new profile boost’ which results in higher profile visibility and more matches when they just start to use Tinder.

The process is pretty much the same when your name is not displayed correctly. You can read it in more details in our blog post, how you can change your name on Tinder.

Change age range on Tinder

You can also set the age range of the profiles you want to see in your swiping deck. This means if you set it between 20 and 40, you will only see profiles between the ages of 20 and 40.

You can change your age range by going to Settings, scroll down to Age Range and use the slider to set the desired age range.

How to adjust your tinder age range

As perhaps a rarity who sought to find love, not sex, on dating apps, I – in my mid-twenties at the time – made sure to set my Tinder age range strategically at 19-30. But again, I wasn’t looking for a hookup, so to this you may ask: What do most men set their age range to on Tinder? I will get to this answer eventually.

I personally selected this aforementioned range as I was already used to dating older women (but also made sure they were under 30 as I —ignorantly— assumed women older than that would want to start a family earlier than I would) and set my lowest possible age to 19, because I didn’t want to date a high-schooler and was told by my well-meaning parents that they could see me marrying a younger woman. Being legal drinking age didn’t hurt, either, I guess. (I’m Canadian.)

As evidenced by the responses I received from a group of men on the subject, all men strategically set their age ranges for different reasons – some seeking love, setting their ranges for similar reasons I did, and others set their ranges as wide as possible to have more profiles to swipe through as they presumably sit on the toilet.

Since the app doesn’t have many strategies one can apply prior to matching with another person, the age range has proven to be more strategic than originally perceived. Based on the responses of 12 men, here’s what guys set their age range to on Tinder, as well as their reasons why.

1. Daniel, 30

21-40. Cast a wide net and let me decide who is the best fit.

2. Rich, 30

27-32. Outside of school and in the workforce so we can relate.

3. Jake, 34

18-40. Tinder is about judging people on looks and I can’t do over 40 – well, maybe I could if she was really incredibly good-looking or something. On the other hand, I’ve got no problem picking up an 18-year-old from high school.

4. Tristan, 25

24 – 30. Because older girls tend to be cooler.

5. Joey, 32

When using it initially to date, six years younger to two years older. After I realized it wasn’t for me, I went all ages 18+ for more variety of pictures to go through.

6. Pete, 29

25 – 33. 25-year-olds are hot and reckless and 33-year-olds are mature.

7. Evan, 28

18-40. Because it’s a hookup app. When I become more serious about finding a girlfriend, I’ll opt for less superficial app (Match.com, etc.).

8. Dave, 40

18-39. Because love ain’t got no age.

9. Andy, 29

18-65. The more darts you throw, the more that will land on the board.

10. Ed, 31

27-33. I’ve found women under 27 are too immature and inexperienced while those over 33 are often looking to start a family much sooner than I am.

How to adjust your tinder age range

We’ve all heard various Tinder horror stories involving everything from investigative swiping and three-year messaging sagas to poop stuck in windows.

But if you’ve been on Tinder long enough, you might have one of these more common stories: You swipe right on someone, and their profile seems pretty standard. But after a chat filled with suspicious “XDs” and strings of emoji, you realize that a tiny disclaimer at the bottom of their bio reads: “Actually 18, not 26 lol.” Cool! Tinder can be a strange and deceptive place—and you might be among the deceivers, so double cool to you.

But when it comes to dating, it’s always better to be honest. Whether you need to update your age or want to remove it altogether, here’s how to change your age on Tinder in a few easy steps.

How to change your age on Tinder

First of all, if your age isn’t correct on Tinder, that’s probably because it isn’t correct on Facebook, either. You can likely blame your teenage self for that—many people who signed up for Facebook in its early days were deemed too young for the site, and likely changed their age to suit the site’s 13-and-up limitation.

If you’re a man over 35, and you’re into younger women, listen to me, a younger woman: Do not change your age in your Tinder bio. If you do, you’re going to miss out on all the wonderful people who want you for who you are. Which is to say, a hot daddy.

Using the term “daddy” right now understandably makes some people uncomfortable. Given the reports flooding the news about once-beloved actors like Kevin Spacey assaulting minors, it’s a delicate time to discuss age play. But it’s also an important time, because understanding the distinction between consensual kinks and sexual assault and harassment is crucial. I’m a survivor myself and shudder with PTSD whenever my timeline is flooded with sexual abuse reports. Rape is not sex. What I’m talking about here is a form of sexual play in which two consenting adults enjoy light role-playing by integrating the word “daddy” into their sex lives.

Recently, I was at dinner with a male friend of mine. He’s 37, extremely attractive, successful, and kind—basically a dreamboat. Any girl woman would be thrilled to match with him on Tinder. We were catching up on our dating lives, and I was shocked and dismayed when he revealed that he lies about his age in his Tinder bio. He keeps it at 35, he said, rather than 37, under the assumption that many women cap their search preferences at 35. He didn’t want to narrow the playing field, especially because he often dates women younger than him.

As a woman in her late 20s, I found it ironic that he was worried about women capping off their search preferences at 35: When it comes to cis-gendered straight dues, 35 is the youngest my Tinder settings are set to. Do I have daddy issues? Oh, for sure. Am I a submissive who thinks it’s hot to date a daddy? Abso-fucking-lutely. I have certainly dated and developed feelings for men my own age, and also those younger than me, but those were all people whom I met in real life. I got to know them in person and was able to feel out if they were mature enough for my tastes. On Tinder my type is totally different.

Judge me all you want for my 35-45 age range—I suppose I deserve the same condemnation as a man who tailors his search preferences towards younger women—but they do say men mature at a slower rate than women, and after one too many literal “u up?” messages from 20-something dudes in Brooklyn, I had to try a new approach. A 41-year-old has also messaged me “u up?” but I digress. The point is: When you lie about your age, you are missing out on the many younger women who are not only totally fine with how old you are, but who actually get off on it. And those are precisely who you want to be attracting. There’s nothing more beautiful in dating than meeting someone who is both kink-compatible with you and fun to spend time with. And after a few dates with the hot 25-year-old, you’re going to have to come clean about your actual age anyway. Lying is a shitty foundation on which to build a relationship, no matter how serious.

Sure, there’s a case to be made for telling white lies in exchange for giving people a chance to get to know you based on you, rather than a number. Ageism is alive and well, but you’re only making it worse by lowering your age on dating apps. I’ve given this a lot of thought as my 30th birthday approaches. I’m certain that I will indeed, be filtered out of certain men’s Tinder criteria. But. thank god? Someone who can’t handle dating a woman in her 30s is someone who can’t handle financial stability, emotional maturity, and a few more years of experience doing mouth stuff. Likewise, a younger woman who isn’t interested in dating someone over 35 is not only entitled to that preference, but may not get off on or appreciate all the delightful qualities you bring to the table, such as your own apartment, money to pay for dinner and cabs, and the daddy title with the oral finesse to back it up.

The age limits etc you suggest are simply suggestions.

Tinder does have a slight lee way.

For example you limit may be 20-24 within 24 miles, but it may show you a 26 yo within 26 miles. If they liked you it also increases the chance of this happening. Generally however 90% of the people you will see will be within the limits you set.

I do believe tinder does state this somewhere themselves.

It probably was on their loading screen or something. I can’t remember exactly where in all honesty.

Also the 90% figure is a rough guess, I certainly get a small, but noticeable amount of people outside my distance and age parameters.

Tinder does not work like website that ask you to put an age range in.

Usually they won’t block them seeing you, rather they will block you receiving emails or put them in a separate folder you will not get notifications from. Some sites even allow premium members to bypass the age setting you post (premium is primarily aimed at men after all). A few will point blank block emails or you coming up on searches but most will stop you coming up on their suggested members, however 99% of the time they can still see your profile.

Tinder works differently. If you put 20-24 you will generally only see people in that group. Possibly with a year or two’s exception. I do believe the closer you are the less strict it is with age, the closer in age you are the less strict it gets with distance. However if a 30 year old puts 20-34 for example, they would still be able to see you and swipe right, but they would not never come up on your list unless you changed your own parameters because they are simply too far away from 24.

Quick answer would be yes they can see you.

Tinder’s matching algorithm and the (formerly elo-, or desirability-) score it assigns to you based on a number of factors, determines whose profile you are shown and to whom your profile is shown, and how prominently. Thereby it very much affects with whom you even have the possibility of matching.

As you may have heard, in March 2019 Tinder announced a change to their ranking algorithm, or the way it determines the attractiveness of its users to match them with people of a similar desirability. They no longer use the elo system as such, but the same rules of beneficial and detrimental behaviors still apply. If you are curious about how things used to work, see the archived version of this post. For the current version, read on.

Terminology: The Difference Between Desirability Score, Visibility, and Type Match.

  • The desirability score, or just “score” the algorithm assigns to you used to be the main factor in how many, and which people your profile would be shown to and vice versa, following the Elo rating system. Nowadays it plays a subordinate role but Tinder’s explanations into the matter notwithstanding, still has a major influence on who gets to see your profile. It’s just that it doesn’t express desirability as much as how well you’ve been following the unwritten rules of Tinder, and it punishes you for breaking them. More on the latter later.
  • Visibility can be something much less permanent than your score and is mainly influenced by how recently you have been active on the app. If you go offline for some time, say a week, your profile will get pushed further and further back in people’s queues the longer you stay away, but will pop right back to its usual position once you come back online.
  • “Type match” is a term we came up with to refer to Tinder’s new system of assigning potential matches to each other, for a lack of any official terminology.

The Factors by Which the Tinder Algorithm Decides Who Gets to See Whose Profile

Partially based on official Tinder announcements and articles, high confidence results of personal experimentation, and anecdotal evidence (user reports).

Type Match

It appears Tinder has moved on from the relatively simple elo system, wherein your score changes based on who liked you (and those people’s own scores) and you’re assigned potential matches with scores similar to your own.

The type match system (probably) works by a combination of:

  • Identifying whom else people with similar tastes to your own liked, a.k.a. “You may also like…”. I.e. it groups users into types based on who else commonly liked or disliked them and then recommends profiles you should like because people who have liked the same type of profile you have liked in the past also like this one and vice versa.
  • AWS image recognition (courtesy of Amazon). This piece of software (supposedly) recognizes what is going on in an image and likely contributes to Tinder’s profiling efforts by supplying information such as “This user likes people who are playing guitar in their photos”.

While it is interesting to know how Tinder decides who could be a good match for you, there is not really much you can do to influence what kind of type the algorithm will assign you, beyond adjusting or improving your profile. With this change it may finally be feasible to custom tailor your profile to a specific type of person, whereas this used to be a terrible idea due to how much your elo score would suffer. Though you should really know what your target audience is looking for before attempting this, or it may still backfire.

“The Score”

Your desirability- , I mean social- , I mean “good boy/girl/whatever user score” may no longer be determined by who liked you, but your behavior on the app definitely still has an influence on the number and quality of potential matches you are both shown and being shown to, as anyone who inadvertently ruined their… score can attest to.

These behaviors the algorithm judges you for seem to have remained largely unchanged. For the long version, I recommend this guide on the DOs and DON’Ts of Tinder. The short version:

  • Your pickiness. Both swiping right to everyone and to almost no one are penalized, though mass swiping right a lot more severely than being too picky. A right swipe quota of 30-70% seems to be the sweet spot.This applies to swiping during paid boosts too.
  • Resetting your account, or rather, getting caught resetting your account. Once a tried and true method of starting over and receiving a huge initial boost in matches (see “noob boost” below), the algorithm now severely punishes your account’s score when a reset is detected. Resetting your account can still work if you feel it is necessary, but it is very tricky and far from a guaranteed success nowadays.
  • It appears that Tinder Plus users who make liberal use of the unlimited swipes feature may be bricking their account. I.e. Swiping too often per day, or hour, may get you marked as a bot by Tinder, resulting in a kind of shadowban, or very, very low score, rendering you nigh-invisible.

Testing suggests 2’000 swipes per hour in any direction will get your account “locked” for 12 hours of the app telling you to “Check back later for new people”, potentially also carrying a permanent score punishment with it.

  • Changing your location too often as a Plus user also seems to hurt your score, though it is as of yet unclear where the threshold lies.
  • Whether you actually send messages to most of your matches. Sending messages, as well as receiving replies, appears beneficial. If you’re stuck on that tricky first message, I’ve got you covered.
  • Visibility

    While your score determines your visibility to an extent, i.e. how many people your profile is being shown to, and in what position of their queue, there other factors, or events, that determine your short term visibility.

    • Noob boost. New accounts get a boost in visibility (not to be confused with the paid boost feature) lasting approximately a day, during which their profile is shown to a very wide audience and featured prominently in their decks. During this time, an account’s type and score are first determined. Once the boost has run its course, these factors determine your visibility and audience, as described above. This is why you get comparatively many matches in your first few days and why that count drops rapidly within a week.
    • Traveler’s boost. Very similarly to the noob boost, travelers get a visibility boost when they first arrive at a new location. This, presumably to improve the experience of using Tinder while traveling and not have matches starting to roll in only once you’ve already moved on. This also works for the Tinder Passport feature, though it would be wise not to overdo it.
    • Activity. As mentioned above, your “last active” time has a strong effect on your visibility. All things being equal, it would be advantageous to spread out your swiping throughout the day, as opposed to getting it all done in one big session.

    I hope you found this guide helpful. Thoughts? Criticism? Praise? Something to add? Feel free to leave a comment below, or visit the SwipeHelper Subreddit. See you there ?

    It’s common that there’s user error when inputting certain criteria about yourself during the mobile dating app process. One major requirement, which essentially effects who you match and get paired up with, is your age.

    Age is an important factor because most of the algorithms on the dating sites will show you people relative to your age. If you’re 40 years old, there’s a good chance you’ll be shown other 40 year olds, not 18 year olds.

    It’s important to get the age on all of these dating apps correct as your experience will be ruined if it’s not fixed. We recommend making sure your name and age is correct, because most of these methods only allow for one age change.

    Why You Should Change Your Age To Be Accurate

    We all want to be younger and want to appear younger. The truth is, lying about your age is simply going to hurt you more than it’s going to help.

    For instance, if you lie about your age, the other person is going to find out eventually. We often seen users on dating apps purposely change their age in order to hide that they’re older than they appear.

    We highly recommend you don’t do this, as it will only tag you as a “liar” for the person and naturally the word will spread about you lying about your age.

    We all want to seem younger, however there are plenty of beautiful people in the world who will accept our age and will love us for exactly how we look.

    Changing Your Age On Dating Apps

    It’s important to have your age match exactly what it says on your birth certificate. However, there are a few errors that can occur during the on-boarding process which can screw up your age.

    First, if you’re logging in via Facebook, it’s important to make sure that your Facebook age is accurate. Often times, younger members will put their age to 99 or 100 on Facebook and not think anything of it.

    If you decide to use Facebook’s login features, it will pull the age directly from Facebook. In order to change your age on Facebook for dating apps:

    1. Log into Facebook
    2. Click On The “Contact & Basic Info”
    3. Scroll Down To Birthday And Click Edit
    4. Change Your Birthday

    Note that you can only change your birthday a certain amount of times. It doesn’t allow you to consistently change days that you’re born every day.

    This should clear up for Facebook how old you are. Since the dating apps are pulling directly from Facebook, this should pull your birthday as well and display it properly.

    How To Change Your Age On Tinder

    If you’ve signed in via Facebook, see the guide above on how to change your age via Facebook.

    If you’ve used an email or a phone number to sign in to Tinder, and your age is wrong, there is unfortunately nothing that can be done. Looking at the Tinder guidelines, they recommend that you delete the app and start over.

    The reason being, it locks all of that information in their database and doesn’t allow for ages to be changed. In order to delete your app to start again to change your age on Tinder, these are the steps you need to take.

    1. Open Tinder
    2. Tap the profile icon
    3. Go to Settings
    4. Scroll down and tap Delete Account

    Use these steps to help change your age on Tinder and correct any user error or mistakes that may have been made. Although it may not seem ideal to have to delete your profile, its the quickest and easiest way to change your age.

    If you’re looking for an easier solution, we recommend deleting your account and starting over. If you’re impatient and don’t want to wait for Bumble to get back to you, use this tactic to have a quick fresh start.

    This may not seem ideal, but it’s the quickest and easiest way to get a fresh age and a fresh profile started.

    How To Change Your Age On Hinge

    If you’ve logged in via Facebook on Hinge, then please scroll up to see how to fix your age via Facebook.

    If you’ve used email or phone number to sign up on Hinge, surprisingly there’s an easy way to change it. Here’s how to do it

    1. Tap on the settings icon on the navigation bar
    2. Tap on the pencil icon underneath your profile picture
    3. Scroll down to My Vitals
    4. Tap on age and change your birthday

    Hinge has made it super simple to sign in and change your birthday. However, be very careful as Hinge only allows for age changes to happen once before it’s locked. If you’re going to change your age, make sure you understand that it’s not going to be able to be edited in the future.

    Conclusion

    Changing your age should only be used to correct a user error or an error in your Facebook page, not to deceive other people. Too often we hear stories of both men and women lying about their age.

    This will often result in heartache and confusion for the person you’re trying to date. It’s important to be as clear and up front as possible when discussing age with your potential partner.

    To get the most use of dating apps, have the mindset that you’re going to meet these people every single time you match with them. This will help you be completely honest about intentions and clarity behind your dating mindset.
