Short-term sexual relationships over one-night stands seem to be what users crave, according to a new study published by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
With more and more users whose desires are shifting, the stigma of finding a mate online is lessening. Being turned down stimulates the same part of the brain that processes physical pain, according to a 2011 study from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Five dating apps -- Tinder, Bumble, Match, Plenty Of Fish and Zoosk -- rank in the top 50 highest-grossing social apps in the Apple Store, with Tinder becoming the overall top-grossing app in September thanks to Tinder Gold, a paid "add-on" of premium features.
Last year, released a volunteer-based study on recent dating trends.
According to Tinder, the app generates 1.6 billion swipes per day, leading to 1.5 million dates (an average of one or two per user) a week.
Hook-up culture on Tinder isn't what it used to be, either.
Millennials were 125% more likely to say they feel addicted to dating.
This information is shared with social media services, sponsorship, analytics and other third-party service providers. In general, Tinder users reported less satisfaction with their bodies and looks than non-users, study author Jessica Strübel wrote."As a result of how the app works and what it requires of its users, people who are on Tinder after a while may begin to feel depersonalized and disposable in their social interactions, develop heightened awareness (and criticism) of their looks and bodies and believe that there is always something better around the corner, or rather with the next swipe of their screen, even while questioning their own worth," Strübel wrote.The Wyldfire app allows female users to invite only the men who they would want their friends to date into the dating pool.
The matchmaker site likes to take things offline too by offering local meetup events for its users.Users swipe right if they're interested and left if they want to reject the match. The formula is pretty standard: Users fill out a profile, and the app will send them daily matches that meet their standards.
