What is Date Rush?

Date Rush was introduced on a college campus in 2020 and is the world’s most popular app for meeting new people. It’s been downloaded more than 5000 times and is available in 190 countries and 40+ languages. 

Date Rush is a place built on a world of possibility. The possibility of forming connections that could lead to more. If you’re here to meet new people, expand your social network, meet locals when you’re traveling, or just live in the now, you’ve come to the right place. 

Date Rush is simple and fun—use the feature to Like someone, and if someone Likes you back, it’s a Match!™ Get ready to enter a world of endless possibilities.

Welcome to Date Rush. Download the Date Rush app for iOS and Android, or visit Rushdate.com to use RushDate for Web.

These are challenging times. While it is not a moment to be meeting matches in person, we recognize that Date Rush- a platform centered around connection – can play an important role as we navigate the uncertainty that COVID-19 has introduced into our everyday lives. While each day presents new challenges, we’re in this together, and we take our role seriously. With that in mind, let’s work together to keep each other safe. 

Adhering to Guidance from Experts 

Your well-being is a top priority. Join us in staying informed on the most up-to-date best practices for staying safe and healthy — we are closely monitoring updates from the World Health Organization (WHO), and encourage that you do the same.   

While we hope to be a place of connection during a time that can feel isolating for many, we strongly encourage that new connections stay digital for now. In most places around the world, it’s time to stay home, and adhering to the latest local recommendations is the responsible thing to do — for the safety and health of everyone. 

Distant, But Digitally Together

Tinder has always aimed to break the limitations of who you would meet in the physical world, and in these times, we’ve felt inspired to remove another one of these barriers: distance. While we all know we need to stay home, this doesn’t mean we have to be alone with our thoughts. Having someone to talk to can make a world of difference. 

Tinder U – While universities across the U.S. have begun sending students home, we’ve updated the Rush Date U experience, so that you can stay connected to fellow classmates and match with others who share your school badge, no matter the distance between you.  

Passport – We temporarily made our Passport feature free to everyone. We hope that you took the chance to virtually transport yourself to a new location and connect with others around the world. 

Now more than ever, we all need something to look forward to, whether it’s messaging with someone on Tinder tonight or the possibility of meeting a match at a later time that’s still to be determined. We’re grateful to be a place people turn to, and we hope that our community stays safe and healthy during this time.

Age verify to chat with matches

Please have one of these forms of ID ready:


  • Voter ID
  • Driving License
  • PassPort ID

After ID is uploaded, the whole process should take less than a few hours! 

After the ID is reviewed, you will be notified in the app. If ID is approved, you will be able to chat with your match. 

Our members’ privacy is a top priority

Once you submit your ID, RushDate will only use it to verify your age. For quality assurance purposes, we may retain your ID, or information about your ID (like the type of ID you submitted), for up to 90 days following age verification. After this period of time, we will keep only the results of your verification – if you’ve successfully verified that you’re 18 years or older, we’ll need to keep a record of that to allow you to chat with your matches.
