Is tinder a good idea?

I tried tinder a long time ago, never got into it. My recently dumped friend from a 5+ year MARRIAGE gets on tinder a few hard and sad months after the breakup and basically finds instant success of someone awesome for him that can only be described as a serendipity moment (super happy for him that he's feeling better but a little jealous). Should I give it another chance or is it as bad as everybody says it is? Does it say that I'm desperate? It probably does doesn't it?
