  • Nope.

    - My friend met her boyfriend on there last Sept/Oct. They're still together. She's still a virgin and he's been extremely respectful about it.

    If I ever installed it, I wouldn't use it to look for a relationship... ;P

What Guys Said 40

  • There are many reasons why people use tinder or dating apps in general. some want to actually date, some want to have one night stands, some want friends, and some just want to feel good about themselves to have guys and girls complimenting them. Both men AND women use it for the reasons stated above. But what I find to be the most important to determine which reasons is either being upfront about it or demographics. literally just tell the guy or gilr that you want sex. its easy, its not like you actually know the person so why be afraid. (of course have some class mates, dont just start with some nasty line and expect it to work. decency and communication goes a long way) Demographics means where you are when you are using tinder and matching people. in a large city its more likely that the girls and guys on there just wants sex and/or friends if theyre new to the city. in a small town its more likely that they are using it for dating and relationships because the chances of that match being a mutual friend with your friends is high. in a big city, very unlikely.

    so there you have it. time is also very important. if you are using tinder on a Friday and getting matches at 9pm and on, in the big city this means that they are most likely just looking to get laid.

    • yea I am not in it for sex really
      and a lot of people there I know so it s kind off awkward haha

  • 99.9999999999% of guys use it to hookup
    I wanna say that most women will tell you they are looking for a relationship because they don't wanna be promiscuous but they still hookup.

  • Why do people go on tinder if it's not to have sex? It's the whole point of the site! If you go there but have no intention of having sex, you are just making it harder for people to use the site and therefore, you are being a nuisance to the users of the site. I don't get it.

  • I can't speak for all guys but I wouldn't take a girl I met on tinder seriously for a relationship. I don't believe any of the ones who say "I am looking for a relationship and don't do hookups" in their profile. I assume they exchange nudes and hookup with the hottest guys and then act coy with the rest.

  • I think that it's more so for hookups and for the people that really have the looks or at least able to create the "illusion" of having the desired looks and appeal.

  • Tinder is not a place to go if your looking for a relationship, it's a place where people go to find someone to just fuck, or sext and get nudes from.

    If you want a relationship then you should go find a guy to date in real life or if you have to use an actual dating website... tinder is well tinder lol.

    • Every dating site has assholes and fakes on it. You just have to get use to it.

    • @NatashaJ I don't use em at all to be honest, I hate the whole idea of it, takes the magic so to speak out of finding someone, because you know exactly why everyone is there, and you miles well assume half of the people are fake, ehh, just ain't for me.

  • I might get on it for a laugh. Or am I too old for it? :D

    It seems to have the reputation of being for fooking.

    And yes, they know you're there solely for sex ;)

      And nah you re def not old

    • You're in Lebanon, right? They have tinder there?

      I'll get on it, and see what happens ;) Actually, come to think of it, I like the idea of it! Seems a bit risque!

  • I met a girl to date before and soon I'll go on another one. What matters is communication - we both already established that neither of us use tinder for "that".

  • depends on the age range of the guys you make yourself available to.

    28 and under = sex

    29 and over = possibly more than sex.

  • People do use it for dating but you'll have to wade through a lot of dudes who are just trying to fuck you.

    I met up with a couple of guys off of it when I was single and they were nice. I'd recommend being upfront about what you're looking for as soon as you match and chat with a guy for a bit before agreeing to meet... I don't mean chat every day for like a week, but spend an evening or two messaging each other and figuring out who he is a bit.

  • It seems like it's more for ego boosts than anything else lol.

    But yes, I have a few friends who met guys on Tinder that they got in a relationship with and dated for a while. Usually if they meet with anyone it's more of a casual thing though, even if they go out on dates and stuff.

  • I would say it is initially interpreted that if you are on there you are looking for a hookup. You could always say you're on there to talk to people and be social but I think that friendships and serious relationships are not the #1 goal of tinder...

  • It has become an app used for one night stands but I have a few friends who met their long term boyfriends on their. I guess it just depends on luck and actually matching yourself with someone who is looking for the same things you are.

  • A bit of both. Mostly hookups but finding someone more serious is not unheard of. So one night stands, friends with benefits, significant others. It depends on the person. Most will let you know in their bio or as soon as they message you.
