Using Tinder Won't Lead to Casual Sex

I talked earlier about how casual sex doesn't truly exist, not because random hookups don't happen but because our bodies naturally attach to our lovers during sex. But despite biology wanting us to bond, people still try to sex up strangers with the intention of loving and leaving. 

But for those who want one night stands, where do you get them? Some people think Tinder is the way, but a new study says the app gives you no better a chance of having casual sex than hitting on a rando at a bar. 

Researchers from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology published a paper in Personality and Individual Differences. The group surveyed 641 students and asked them about their Tinder usage. They found out that Tinder swipers who wanted casual sex weren't successful, proving that just because you want something doesn't mean you'll get it.

Tinder has a reputation for being a hookup app, but the study found that most people liked to swipe because they were bored. Women reported that they liked using the app to affirm that they were attractive, based on how many matches and messages they got, but they weren't actually down to fuck as the men of Jersey Shore like to say. 

The study found that straight men on the app were trying to get short-term relationships or hookups, but alas, like in real life, most women just weren't interested.
