The most common motives for using Tinder: it's exciting and it's trendy.Another common motive that wasn't cited in the Le Febvre study was self-worth validation.Participants in the Dutch study seemed to be less successful on Tinder.Slightly fewer than half of the participants (45.5 percent) had gone on an offline date with a match, and 18.6 percent reported having had a one-night stand.As can be seen in the table, using the app for casual sex and hookups was actually less common than these other motives.
So what was the most commonly cited reason for using Tinder?It's popular: 48.3 percent of the respondents indicated that the main reason they used Tinder revolved around its popularity—the media hype or the fact that many of their peers were using it.Only about 5 percent of those surveyed indicated that the desire for hookups was their main motivation for joining the site. The participants were also asked what was the purpose of Tinder.Someone might primarily have joined Tinder because it seemed like the cool thing to do, but that person might also have a desire to meet a potential romantic partner or hookup.In another recent study, by Sindy Sumter and colleagues, a sample of 163 Dutch Tinder users rated the extent to which various motives described their reasons for using Tinder.
When it came to people’s perceptions, not surprisingly, they were true to stereotype.
