Tinder’s new Blind Date feature wants you to rate matches based on personality

Blind Date is the latest addition to Tinder’s Fast Chat family with other in-app experiences like Hot Takes and Swipe Night. The feature pairs users based on what they have in common, answering questions, and playing games. If both users decide to match, they can finally see each other’s photos.
