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.
Participants in the Dutch study seemed to be less successful on Tinder.
Slightly fewer than half of the participants (45.5%) had gone on an offline date with a match, and 18.6% reported having had a one-night stand.
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.
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% 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.
They are then notified of any matches, where both people swiped right on each other's profiles.
Thus, users can quickly view hundreds of local singles and decide with a quick swipe of their finger if they’re interested or not.
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.
