Dating and sex sites
Slightly fewer than half of the participants (45.5 percent) had gone on an offline date with a match, and 18.6 percent reported having had a one-night stand.

For the uninitiated, Tinder is a mobile dating app that allows users to locate other singles in their geographic area. They can then start viewing photos of other users who match their age, gender, and location criteria.

These studies show that using Tinder meets a variety of psychological needs, beyond the obvious ones relating to dating and sex.
