As can be seen in the table, using the app for casual sex and hookups was actually less common than these other motives.Not surprisingly, both studies also suggested that men are more likely than women to use Tinder for the purpose of seeking out casual sex.And in fact, 37 percent reported that a Tinder date led to an exclusive dating relationship. Well, these participants did do plenty of hooking up.Of those who met a Tinder match in person, only 21.8 percent indicated that they had never hooked up.Both studies showed that the trendiness and excitement of the app were larger drivers of its use than motivations that relate to what most users believe to be its purpose (dating, sex).It can also help to fulfill our needs for self-worth. On the other hand, not receiving matches could damage self-worth, and in fact, Le Febvre found that lack of success on Tinder, including not receiving matches, was one of the main reasons users quit the app. In Le Febvre's qualitative study, 77 percent of the respondents indicated that they had met a match in person at some point, with the average participant reporting 4.58 offline meetings with matches.
Tinder can also be used to fulfill more general social needs.It was not uncommon for participants to use the app because they wanted positive feedback on Tinder or because receiving such feedback felt good.Naturally, finding a romantic partner was also a relatively common reason for using Tinder.The researchers then coded participants' responses into categories.So what was the most commonly cited reason for using Tinder?
This rate is much lower, but other data from this study indicates that these participants were overall less active on the app than the participants in Le Febvre's study.
