Meet local teens on dating sites
Once your profile is set up, Tinder will then provide you with a list of relevant matches based on your profile, interests, mutual friends on Facebook, location, sex and selected age range.
You can then either swipe right to make a match with another user, tap his/her image to view more or swipe left to continue looking through potential matches.
Users over 18 can see only other users who are also over 18.
It’s possible that your teen might end up matching with a person who is much older than he/she says he/she is! Tinder for teens works in the same way the adult app does, however it separates the two communities.
A person 18 years or older cannot see Tinder profiles of users aged 17 and under.

Tinder is a FREE dating app that you can download for your phone, desktop and tablet.
