Teen sex hook up sites
Participants in the Dutch study seemed to be less successful on Tinder.
The categories, and the average ratings of the participants for each category, are summarized in the table below.The researchers then coded participants' responses into categories.So what was the most commonly cited reason for using Tinder?While this open-ended data is valuable, it doesn't provide the whole story on why people use Tinder.Participants in Le Febvre's study were asked what their motivations for their behaviors.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.
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.
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.
Another 12.6% said they had hooked up but it didn’t involve sexual intercourse and another 65.6% said their hookups did involve sexual contact.
