We tried Tinder's new swipe up option on users we 'super liked'

Tinder rolled out a huge new feature today: the Super Like, for when just swiping right isn’t enough.

In addition to “liking” or “passing” on potential connections, users can now also deploy the Super Like once a day, unless they pay extra for Tinder Plus.

The Super Like is supposed to show that you’re really into the match, and it rolled out in Australia.

According to Tinder, Super Liking someone makes that person more likely to swipe right on you and can result in longer conversations.

I did some testing this morning and found out what it looks like to Super Like someone — and what happens when someone else Super Likes you. Here’s what I found.

After a few minutes of swiping, I find a pleasant-seeming guy to Super Like. He looks nice so I think maybe he'll respond to this slightly aggressive come-on. I tap the little blue star.

I'm seeing the term 'Super Like' a bunch of times without any explanation about what that really means -- plus Tinder doesn't tell you that you can only Super Like once a day. Good thing I read our story on the Super Like this morning so I know that.

Now that I've Super Liked him, it's already a match -- he must have swiped right on me, too, which kind of makes me feel like I've wasted my Super Like on someone who already liked me.

Tinder gives me the option to share my new match with the world. As tempting as it is to AirDrop the news to my colleagues' laptops, I decide not to.

Now that the Super Like is in effect, Tinder asks me what I'm waiting for. Honestly, I'm waiting for him to message me first, because Super Liking him felt aggressive enough.

When I tried to Super Like another guy, Tinder told me I was out of luck for 12 more hours -- unless I wanted to upgrade to Tinder Plus.

Hmmm, do I want Tinder Plus? Let's check the prices... Nah, not really.

A few minutes later, my Super Like messaged me. Success! Then, I got to find out what it looked like on his end when someone else Super Liked me. After I clicked this notification, though, the new Super Like was nowhere to be found.

A few minutes later, that Super Like actually appeared within the app. I still had the option of swiping right or left. That made me feel better about the whole thing -- I felt flattered by the Super Like but also still had a choice as far as whether the guy could message me.
