Using Tinder doesn't result in more casual sex
Users of picture-based mobile dating apps like Tinder are generally more open to short-term, casual sexual relationships than the average person. But this doesn’t mean that the users of these apps end up with more sexual partners than non-users with the same preference for casual sex. “Apps have become the new public arena for dating. But to a large extent, the people using them are the same ones you find dating other ways,” says professor Leif Edward Ottesen Kennair at NTNU’s Department of Psychology.
