https://www.esquire.com/lifestyle/sex/a12149373/tinder-statistics-study/Of Esquire readers who use Tinder, 63% say they use it out of boredom—and 75% of those are women. "There is an undeniable gamification element to Tinder," said eHarmony CEO Grant Langston. "I have a friend, mid-40's, single, beautiful, who uses Tinder and never expects to have a single date. She comes home from work, pours a big glass of wine and browses through the men. That's her evening entertainment.
.63x.75=.4725 aka 47% of women are exactly like the women above, just using Tinder for gratification and not actually planning to go on dates and stuff. Just attention whoring. Meanwhile .63x.25=.1575 so only 16% of men are doing the same. So let's do the math and see what the percentages are for how much each gender is actually looking for hook ups on Tinder.
67.8 x .84 = 56.95 32.2 x .53 = 17.1
56.95 + 17.1 = 74.05
56.95/74.05=.769--->77% of serious Tinder users are male while only 23% of serious Tinder users are female.
INB4 "those women are lying" what they are saying is realistic. They do not need to resort to Tinder to get laid. Just look at real life and you will see many women who use tinder do this, they never go on dates. Plus those women from the survey didn't even need to admit to using Tinder, so there was no need to lie about whether or not they were taking it seriously.
In conclusion, if you are looking for a hook up through online dating, the numbers are NOT in your favor at all. Because of this, a man is going to have to be extremely attractive, in the absolute top percentiles of male attractiveness, if he wants to be laid through that route.
