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).
The categories, and the average ratings of the participants for each category, are summarized in the table below.
The most common motives for using Tinder were because it's exciting and because it's trendy.
Another common motive that wasn't cited in the Le Febvre study was self-worth validation.
Since its launch in 2012, the dating app, Tinder, has received quite a bit of publicity.
It's one of the most popular lifestyle apps with over 10 million daily active users.
And in fact, 37% 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% indicated that they had never hooked up.For the uninitiated, Tinder is a mobile dating app that allows users to locate other singles in their geographic area. They can then start viewing photos of other users who match their age, gender, and location criteria.Users swipe right if they like what they see and swipe left if they don’t.So someone might primarily have joined Tinder because it seemed like the cool thing to do, but they 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.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.
