To Find Ideal Partners Dating Apps Add Covid Jab As Criteria

Users who claimed to have already received the Covid vaccine were being "liked" at twice the rate of users who said they weren't interested

Want to find an ideal partner on dating apps? First, get vaccinated against Covid. According to a media report, many dating apps are allowing users to determine potential partners based on their vaccine status.

An increasing number of people on dating apps like Tinder, OK Cupid, Bumble, and Coffee Meet Bagel are divulging information on whether they are vaccinated or are planning to take the jab against Covid-19, the Guardian reported.

Research by London-based Elate Date showed that more than 60 percent of people on its platform did not want to date anti-vaxxers, the report said.

“It’s becoming a bit of flex to say you’ve been vaccinated. Our research finds that over 60 percent of people wouldn’t consider dating someone who was against having the vaccination and that it’s become a trend to include ‘vaccination’, ‘antibodies’ and ‘shots’ in dating bios in the same way people would their height, job or interests,” Sanjay Panchal, founder of dating app Elate was quoted as saying to the Guardian.
