About this app

7 THOUSAND MATCHES! We've helped 7 thousand pairs of Twinklers match, chat and meet.

Tired of swiping in dating apps? Twinkle helps you connect with people you're interested in faster, thanks to our powerful search filters. We actually want you to spend less time using the app and get better results. Plus, you'll be able to see who liked you for free. Isn't that only fair?

Here's how it works. Your match queue is filled with users who match your search settings. Use Match Juice to send a Like; or save your Juice for someone else. After you send a Like, your crush will be notified, and can connect with you. Want to encourage your crush to like you? Write a Shout and it will be shown on your profile when your crush sees you.

Here are some more ways Twinkle works better:

Search more, swipe less
We all have our preferences. Give us yours, and we'll only show you people who match pretty well. Choose from 10+ search parameters. Rest assured that everyone in your queue is a two-way match: you also match their prefs! Use your Juice more effectively, and save yourself time.

Scout distant lands with Travel
Use Twinkle Travel to move your search to distant cities worldwide with the most users.

Share your intent
Make it obvious that you're looking for a long-term relationship, nonexclusive dating, or just want to meet people. Plus, filter other people based on their intent.

Stand out, write a shout
See someone you really like? Write them a short message (called a shout) that will appear when they see your photo or profile. Prove that you've read their profile, say why you're a good match, or send your best pickup line.

See who has liked you
We understand that you want to know how many people are waiting for you to decide yes or no. So we not only show you how many you have, we also show who they are. See someone you like in your Admirers list but don't want to wait until they appear in your match queue? Use Instant Match to connect with them right away.

No subscriptions
Use our special Stars to access premium features in Twinkle. We have no recurring monthly charges. Spend as much or as little as you like — starting at under $2 (USD).

Are these profiles even active?
Are you sick of your dating apps not showing you when their users were last on the app? We hear you! Just use Stars to enable Profile Activity, and you'll see, on each profile, the online indicator telling you roughly when they were last on Twinkle.

Add some social proof
Easily add Instagram to your profile. We'll show your latest image posts, and add a link to open your feed in Instagram.

Look beyond photos
We don't emphasize the main photo on profiles. The photos take up less than half of the profile screen. Make better choices by looking beyond pictures. Consider adding interests to your profile, and view the interests of your potential match.

Twinkle. Search the stars, find someone you like.

App is awful, terrible selection of people and horrible UI. Tried deleting account but the app refuses to do so for 3 days. Not sure this is actually allowed. Contacted support who were about as useful as a chocolate teapot and told me, just keep using the app. Don't waste your time.

It's been my favorite dating app so far. I think its good that they limit the amount of daily matches so that people don't have to spend hours swiping through stuff like on Tinder. I would recommend being specific on your match settings for that reason though, when you only get ~13 matches a day it helps a lot if they're really close to what you're looking for.

Absolutely my favorite dating app I've ever before made use of (and I have actually tried many) as well as has a lot of complimentary capability. I have actually located one of the most people that I'm in fact interested in conference on this application, that resemble me and seeking something longer term, as well as that I can have real conversations with. The only problem I have is the messaging does not constantly send notifications up until you open the application, it's feasible this result
