Your celebrity crush could be a swipe away. (Seriously!)

Good news for fans of dating app Tinder: The company is going to begin verifying profiles of its celebrity users (yes, apparently Tinder has celebrity users) in a similar fashion to the way that Twitter handles celebrities.

Normal folks have to sign up for Tinder with their Facebook account, and the app then pulls that persons Facebook photos and information before matching them up with people. Tinder CEO Sean Rad told The Hollywood Reporter, it's not as easy for celebs. "Sometimes celebrities use different names on Facebook," he shared, and most people therefore assume that the celebrity is a fake. The new verification program "will allow celebrities to enter Tinder in a different way." Rad thinks that Tinder and celebs are a good match because the app "gives them the control to filter through the noise and communicate with people they want to know."

Surprised that celebrities need to use a dating app to meet people? You're probably not alone, but there is evidence that some notables do actually use the app.
