First up are 'Super Likes' - you can Super Like someone by tapping the blue star icon or swiping up on their profile - unlike a regular attempt to match, this will immediately send them a notification that they've been Super Liked and the chance to see your profile.

Tinder is an online dating app that matches couples based on their physical attraction to one another.
It alerts you to other Tinder users who fall within a specified age range and gender and are within a certain distance of your location, and it lets you know whether you have any mutual friends.
I do have several close friends who use Tinder, however, so I took the opportunity to force on them a game of 20 questions in an effort to answer your Tinder FAQs.
Special thanks goes to Paul, who let me have a nosey at his Tinder profile.
It's very much like being introduced to the hot friend of a friend in a bar, but it removes the clumsy, drunken matchmaker and the want-to-curl-up-and-die cringeworthiness from the equation.
Tinder is available as a free app for Android or i OS; just download it from the App Store or Google Play.It also gives you one free Boost per month, and five Super Likes per day, rather than just one.Plus-exclusive features are a 'rewind' button so that you can re-do your last swipe in case you accidentally went the wrong way, and the ability to change your location - this is useful if you're planning a trip and want to match with a few people before you arrive.The biggest benefit of Tinder Plus is that it lifts the 'right swipe limit'.Normal users can only swipe right on so many users per day before they have to wait 12 hours - a way of discouraging people from trying to match with every profile they come across. Pricing is determined for each user by Tinder's algorithm, with prices based in large part on your age: the younger you are, the cheaper it costs.There's no fixed number of swipes you're allowed, as it's determined by an algorithm based on your typical behaviour, but either way, Tinder Plus users can swipe to their heart's content. It can reportedly range from as low as £1.49 per month right up to £14.99 per month - with discounts if you commit to six months or a year in advance.Just to make things even more confusing, Tinder has a second, separate paid tier called Tinder Gold, which offers all of the features of Tinder Plus, and one big addition: Likes You.Put simply, it means you get to see who's already swiped right on you, so you can make sure to pay special attention to the profiles of people who you know like you before you commit to swiping in return.Tinder Gold has rolled out worldwide to i OS users, though Android support is due later in September 2017.You decide whether or not you like the look of a person: if you do, great; if you don't, they'll never know.If you're both interested then Tinder's messaging function offers you a private chat thread in which to talk and get to know each other better.
