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 percent 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 percent said they had hooked up but it didn’t involve sexual intercourse and another 65.6 percent said their hookups did involve sexual contact.In addition, the average number of hookups reported by the participants was just above three.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.

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.

When it came to people’s perceptions, not surprisingly, they were true to stereotype.

51.5 percent said they believed Tinder was designed for hooking up, 33.5 percent said dating, and 15 percent meeting people.

The researchers then coded participants' responses into categories.
