Highlights From A Survey Of 4,000 College Kids On Dating Apps (Safe For Work)


Dating apps. They’re like the truck stop rest rooms of your cell phone, and their impact on our culture is so profound that Googling “swipe left” actually now brings up a dictionary entry:

In an effort to gauge just how millennials really use these things, Adobo.com, which is a website that helps you find apartments and has nothing to do with social research, conducted a survey of 4,000 current college students around the country. Here are the most salient facts:

THE MOST POPULAR APP IS TINDER

 

84% of app users are on Tinder, though FarmersOnly would have likely ranked higher if they’d polled any agricultural colleges.

THEY’RE ON TINDER FOR “ENTERTAINMENT”

 

34% of respondents claim to be on Tinder for entertainment, but this word can mean a lot of things. For example: sex. Other (less) entertaining ways to have a good time on Tinder: catfishing, credit card scams, finding out someone is cheating and blackmailing them.

THEY’RE NOT ON THERE FOR HOOK UPS

91% percent of respondents claim they’re not using the apps for hook-ups, primarily when asked by girls “you’re not just looking for a hook-up, right?”

31.5% OF WOMEN SAID THEY WOULD NEVER HOOK UP ON A FIRST DATE.

Only 9.4% of men said the same thing. 99.5% are lying and the rest are closeted.

37% OF MEN DON’T CONSIDER USING AN APP WHILE IN A RELATIONSHIP TO BE CHEATING

Because, despite desperately trying to cheat, they can’t get laid.

THERE’S A DATING APP CALLED COFFEE MEETS BAGEL

And it’s not a place for Jews to meet Gentiles.

13.7% OF TINDER USERS ARE ON THERE FOR AN EGO BOOST

A much higher percentage are on there—unwittingly—for ego annihilation.

MORE PEOPLE ARE ON APPS TO FIND LOVE THAN A HOOKUP

 

It’s 11.5% for love and 8.8% for hookups, which the surveyors described as “heartwarming.” They neglected to mention that 99% of users will find neither, which is disheartening.

10.2% OF WOMEN AND 9.6% OF MEN ARE LOOKING FOR FRIENDS

 

These people are ruining it for everyone else.

MORE WOMEN THAN MEN CHOSE NUDES AS THEIR #1 REASON TO USE DATING APPS

 

9.1% of women cite collecting nudes as their #1 reason for using dating apps, though, for obvious reasons, exactly what percent of these women are actually gay men using a fake picture could not be determined.
