If you and someone have both swiped right on one another, a screen will appear showing that you’ve matched and inviting you to send them a message.
But most of the time, the Tinder experience will consist of flicking through profiles like channels on the television.
Some dating websites don’t even give “transgender” as an option when signing up!
