How do motives for using Tinder relate to people’s experiences?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.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.
