For those of you on Tinder, you'll know that it's a bloody nightmare. Us girls spend ages on it, swiping right occasionally and swiping left far too many times on attractive people who look like they might be dickheads. Plus, what if you swipe right on someone and they don't reciprocate?! I don't think my ego could handle it.

Well, Tinder has just announced that they're FINALLY going to give us what we want. We're now going to be able to know who's swiped right on us before we decide.

I KNOW.

The problem is that it will cost you money. Damn. It's part of something called 'Tinder Gold' and they're dubbing it the "Likes You" featura. According to Mashable, a 'gold heart' icon will appear on someone who's already liked you, additionally on your matches home screen you'll be able to see a list of all those lads just waiting to talk to you.

To be completely fair, this seems like something that's been made with men in mind. But anyway, you'll also have access to Passport (where you can change your location), Rewind (where you can go back on someone you've disregarded), Unlimited Likes, Super Likes (when you really like someone and want them to know it), Boosts (so you show first on people's app), and extra profile controls (such as hiding your age).

Bad news is that they're currently testing it in Argentina, Australia, Canada, and Mexico. But it's just a matter of time before it comes out over here, surely?

Tinder said: "Get the gold treatment. We know you. You live in a world where every moment counts - where speed equals success, you're always on the go, and you can't let anything slow you down. Especially your Tinder feed.

"That's why we created Tinder Gold, a members-only service, offering our most exclusive features: Passport, Rewind, Unlimited Likes, five Super Likes per day, one Boost per month, and more profile controls-as well as our new Likes You feature, so that you can see who likes you before you swipe. Think of it as your personal Swipe Right concierge - available 24/7 - bringing all of your pending matches to you. Now you can sit back, enjoy a fine cocktail, and browse through profiles at your leisure.

"Tinder Gold will begin testing in Argentina, Australia, Canada and Mexico in the coming days. We hope to roll it out to all our users soon."

Even if you don't match with the blokes/women who like you, this means a real ego boost every time you open the app. Yay.
