100 percent free nasty hookups
These studies show that using Tinder meets a variety of psychological needs, beyond the obvious ones relating to dating and sex.Tinder can also be used to fulfill more general social needs.
Only about 5 percent of those surveyed indicated that the desire for hookups was their main motivation for joining the site. The participants were also asked what was the purpose of Tinder.
The researchers then used a statistical technique to group those ratings into general categories.
The categories and the average ratings of the participants for each category are summarized in the table below.
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.
