Don't know how to message that total Baldwin (please watch Clueless if you don't get that reference) that you just got matched with on Tinder? Well, now you don't have to think of yet another clever way to say "Hey, I hope you're not a total creep who likes to smell my dinner napkin while they think I'm not looking."

You can just say it with a GIF.

Tinder announced on Thursday that it has partnered with GIPHY to allow users to send GIFs to each other. Now your dream to be the first couple in the world who started a relationship through GIF-only messages can come true!

Tinder, New Messaging Features

Tinder

Another update the dating app announced this week is the ability to "like" a message from another user, which essentially looks like the heart function on Twitter, but it's a green heart instead of red. Is that a better color for a heart on social media? Discuss.

Tinder users can also change their profile photo using pics directly from their device's camera roll and they've made profile photos bigger. Now is the time perfect that selfie game now, kids.

But back to the new GIF messaging, because that's what's really important. Before you start using that feature to flirt with other humans, we've compiled a list of GIFs that you'll definitely need for every Tinder situation. You're welcome!
