"Internet dating is the fastest, most efficient way to gather a pool of qualified candidates. It could take you a lifetime to do the investigation that the computer comes up with within seconds." - Judsen Culbreth.

Do you remember those days when you used to go to a friend's party with the hope of meeting someone new? The time when dating someone meant meeting at a coffee shop and having awkward conversations. And, a more embarrassing situation when you meet them again at the same friend's party, mostly when it didn't work out between the two of you.

Woah! A sudden wave of nostalgia.

Nonetheless, long gone are those days. Now, dating someone is as simple as doing a 'right swipe.' Yes! We are talking about using Tinder for dating.

Don't you think that these online applications have made dating quite simple? All you need to do is create a profile and chat with the person you match with. Besides, you don't have to ask your friends or family to set you up with someone they know.

Perhaps, it won't be wrong to say that internet dating is one of the best technological developments for millennials (born 1981-1996) and Gen Zers (born 1997-2012). And, keeping the same into mind, Tinder launched its web version in September 2017.

Launch of tinder Online

You must be wondering- what was the need for the web version of Tinder? Well, there were basically two main reasons behind this update:

  1. To serve the user who faces the issue of 'not enough storage' in their phones because of Tinder's heavy-image feed. and
  2. To attract the audience who doesn't get time to look at their phone because of busy schedules, i.e., university students and employed persons.

Although the web version has been around for a while now, the major shift was seen in 2020.

Rise of Tinder online in 2020

In an interview with the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation), the Tinder CEO, Mr. Elie Seidman, said user engagement has drastically increased in the dating apps.

But that's not all!

He also said that on 29 March 2020, the application recorded 3 billion swipes/drag worldwide. It has been so far the highest record of Tinder swipes in a day. Even so, what is the cause of such a high increase? Yes, you guessed it right! It is due to covid-19.

While people are stuck in their homes, one way to keep boredom away is using Tinder on a phone or Mac. Besides, rather than switching between a phone to chat with a match and using a Mac for work from home, people prefer using Tinder on Mac. Why? Simply because it is easy, convenient, and doesn't affect productivity.

But, hang on a minute!

As you know, Tinder is an application, and just like any other application, it sometimes faces a few issues that might make your user experience a bit bad. So, before you start using Tinder on your Mac, you must learn measures to resolve the problems of 'Match loading indefinitely' and 'tinder not working on your Mac.'

Are you ready? So, let's dive right into it.

Check your internet connection

Correct us if we are wrong, but no one likes it when a website starts to buffer. On top of that, take several minutes to load pictures and profiles. And, in all the frustration of slow loading, you start blaming the application or website. However, did you check your internet connection before you got frustrated?

Most of the time, the reason behind buffering is a faulty internet connection. Thereby, you need to ensure that your wifi or cellular data is working correctly and connected with your Mac. If the internet is not working, try to restart the modem and reconnect the wifi with your device.

Close and logout from the website

If Tinder is still not working, try to logout and close the website ( After some time, try to login again with your Facebook, Gmail, or phone number (whatever method you used to make your account). By doing this, you can quickly resolve the issues related to website crashing, and you can continue with the chatting part again.

Update your app

Oh! You are using the application and not the website on your Mac. No worries! The reason behind application lagging could be the 'need to update.' The application gets regularly updated to remove software bugs and enhance the experience of users. That's why you need to check if your app version is outdated or not and update it regularly.

Reinstall your app

Lastly, if the error has not been fixed yet, delete your application and reinstall it. Deleting the application will remove the application's temporary glitch and clear the cache stored in your Mac.

If you don't know how to install Mac's application, the experts at can help you with it. Believe it or not, but for the people trying to keep Tinder and other websites off their browsers to improve efficiency, it's the perfect solution.

Reinstalling the app will provide you with the latest version of the software and will also start running smoothly. Overall, providing you with a great internet dating experience. Not to mention that, by using Tinder on your Mac, you'll save your phone space that can later be filled with photographs of your in-person date.

The bottom line,

Everybody needs a partner with whom they can talk about their dreams, life, and struggles. Indeed, the very first step of searching for your partner in modern times is using a dating application, a.k.a Tinder.

Moreover, if we consider the pandemic's current scenario, where work from home is a new normal, and conventional dating is no longer feasible, using Tinder on your Mac is beneficial.

Nonetheless, it is important to know the troubling issues to easily resolve them so that your application experience doesn't get affected. No one wants to miss a great match, primarily due to an app error. Isn't it? So, are you ready to take Tinder to the next level?
