Adult dating free email - Meet sex full free
These studies show that using Tinder meets a variety of psychological needs, beyond the obvious ones relating to dating and sex.
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.
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.
While this open-ended data is valuable, it doesn't provide the whole story on why people use Tinder.
