While great for matching single couples, Tinder can also stir up some controversy.
Once in a while, a married person becomes active on this dating app. And of course, it also casts a shadow of suspicion among married couples.
Tinder officially discourages monogamous and married couples from using the app. However, many people report that they have found their loved ones actively wandering there.
And if paranoia sets in, you might want to see it for yourself. This article will try to help you.
Have you considered the possibility of your spouse being on Tinder? Or is it just guessing? Be warned. It’s a long and exhausting road you’ll take if you don’t have enough evidence of their misdeeds.
Therefore, it’s best to wait patiently and gather enough evidence that something might be boiling below the surface. Then you can start with the most serious work.
Here are some points to pay attention to:
- Behaviour: Your spouse is too much on his smartphone? Are they showing less interest in your relationship? If they’re constantly texting and trying to hide their phone every time you want to peek, that’s suspicious. An honest spouse does not hide much.
- Existence of an application on their phone: If they want to show you something on their phone, pay attention to the apps they have installed. If you see a Tinder among the apps, they may still be using it.
- Evidence from others: Maybe your friend or relative came across your spouse’s profile while bumping into Tinder, confirming the existence of a profile.
Of course, this evidence is only the first leg of the journey. It is still too early to draw hasty conclusions.
If you see changes in behavior patterns, it doesn’t have to be Tinder related. You should still talk about it. Moreover, the existence of the application does not mean that they use it. Maybe the profile is just a relic from long ago.
Method #2 – Use a “spy” app
Let’s move from theory to practice. If you are really suspicious of your spouse’s online activities, you can install a third-party tracking app.
This app will connect to your spouse’s device via mobile phone ID. This usually means you need to know the ID and password (Google for Android and Apple for iOS) of the phone you want to monitor.
One of these apps is PhoneSpector. It’s a premium app that lets you “inspect” any phone you submit.
This means that you will get the following data:
- The texts
- Social media messages (including Tinder)
All in your dashboard.
Just download, install and follow the on-screen instructions and you can quickly start your surveillance mission.
Method #3 – Find him on Tinder
If the above method is a bit overkill, you can always use the simple “catfish” method.
However, you must first create a plausible fake Tinder profile to make it work. It’s a painstaking, yet simple process. You can look it up (TechJunkie has a great guide too) online.
Once you have your profile, you need to use Tinder’s settings to narrow down your potential search range. If you change your search preferences correctly, your spouse may appear as a possible match.
- Launch Tinder.
- Tap your profile icon.
- Go to settings”.
- Tap “Discover” at the bottom of the menu.
Here you should try to restrict the search preferences as much as possible.
- Reduce the maximum distance to the lowest possible (your partner is right next to you).
- Only include their age range.
- Display their gender.
If your spouse is actively swiping on Tinder and you’ve created a plausible and attractive profile, they’ll swipe right.
As soon as you start your communication, you will be in the clear.
And this is one of the ways to find out if your spouse is active on Tinder.
As said, Tinder might be on your spouse’s smartphone, but that doesn’t mean they’re using it. Even if you find out he’s there, it’s better to talk about it than to spy on them behind their backs.
Most of the time, it’s just a huge misunderstanding that you can resolve with a long, healthy conversation.
Also, if you meet your spouse on Tinder (not unusual), they may have the same profile as before.
