When it came to people’s perceptions, not surprisingly, they were true to stereotype.
51.5% said they believed Tinder was designed for hooking up, 33.5% said dating, and 15% meeting people.
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.
Of those who met a Tinder match in person, only 21.8% indicated that they had never hooked up.
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.
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.
