People who are in a relationship, are often insecure about their partner regarding various issues like jealousy, growing apathetic, trust etc. But now as we live in a digital age, another thing has been added to our list of insecurities which is if your S.O. is browsing other potential mates. ‘Is my partner still on Tinder?’, ‘What if my partner swiped right to someone they found there?’.
We know that not everyone on Tinder is single, and while there are plenty of other uses for the app, like Tinder Moments, the immediate worry when you find out your partner is on it is that they’re up to no good.
These are the steps you must take when you face such situation instead of panicking out
Well, It’s Time To Do The “Are We Official” Talk
When you find out that your partner is on Tinder, instead of chickening out, go, talk to them. Don’t beat around the bush. Simply confront them and ask, “What do you think of our relationship?” If they say, they’re serious about it, then ask their reason for still being on Tinder.

Ask Their Reason For Being On Tinder
If your partner is serious about you but still wants to be on Tinder, and if they say it’s just for fun; then you needn’t to be much worried about it. It’s completely okay. Instead you both can enjoy reading conversations on Tinder and laugh about it.
Be Fair On Both The Sides
This isn’t a topic on which you can play a blame game. If you’re on Tinder, but don’t want your partner to use it, then this isn’t fair. In this concept of relationship, both are expected to be loyal and open towards each other. If you are using it, then you must be okay with the fact that your partner too is using the dating app. It also discreetly suggests that you both are agreeing for an open relationship.
How far is it okay to be ‘Okay’ with it?
As far as you know and your partner assures you that being on Tinder won’t affect your relationship at all, then it is absolutely alright. But it’s really all about intent: If they have no intention of meeting any of their matches, it seems harmless enough.
All said and done, amid all these hurdles, trust is a super important part of a healthy relationship. If that’s intact in your relationship, half the battle is won.
