Most Helpful Girl
The superlikes are normal. Funny thing is I've almost never liked any of those back though.
Anyway, Tinder is a tool - use it for whatever you want. I've gone on fun dates. Met interesting people. I got a 6 month relationship out of it with a great guy, and was very happy with it until distance drove us apart.
Other people get hook-ups.
The sheer volume of people on there makes it likely that there are other people looking for what you're looking for. You just have to wade through a bunch of people to hone in on the right ones. For example, if a guy on there is really hot and hasn't written much at all about himself - he's probably only there to hook up. Several shirtless pics and little info - hook up. Netflix and chill in bio - hook up. Stuff like that.
