Why are dating apps like Tinder used mostly for hookup?

Why not for something more?
Why are people so against looking for love there? What's wrong with that?

I use it to find love and I'm not ashamed of it. It's the only dating app used in my country, so I don't really have any other options. But it's hard finding anything meaningful there because people are so convinced that it's only for hookup so those who want it use it, and those who do want a relationship don't use it because they know that it's only used for hookup.
I think Tinder is a brilliant invention, but used wrongly. When I match with guys there and tell them that I'm not for hookup, they laugh and are like "then why are you here?". It's as if looking to meet someone special on Tinder is stupid. Well it is because it's floated with fuckboys and sluts, they ruined it.
