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.
Someone might primarily have joined Tinder because it seemed like the cool thing to do, but that person 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.
The most common motives for using Tinder: it's exciting and 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).
Of those who met a Tinder match in person, only 21.8 percent indicated that they had never hooked up.The researchers then coded participants' responses into categories.So what was the most commonly cited reason for using Tinder?You might also be wondering how Tinder users' motives for using the app relate to their actual use of the app.Le Febvre's qualitative data couldn't really address this question, but Sumter and colleagues were able to examine the association between Tinder use motives and participants' likelihood of going on a Tinder date or having a Tinder hookup.
