Men and women use Tinder very differently,and it turns out that leads to different results: It makes men happy, and it makes women miserable.
A new study found that Tinder is tough on women because Tinder gives them a weird sense of rejection that they never had to deal with in old-fashioned dating. The main reason is that men will swipe right on lots and lots of different profiles, whereas women only swipe right on guys they’re attracted to.
That means when women get a Tinder match, they actually want to see where it goes. But when guys get a match, it might just be an ego boost, because there’s a decent chance they weren’t that attracted to the woman they swiped right on.
Women are three times more likely than men to actually send a message after they match with someone, but only 42% of those messages get responses. This means women are rejected the majority of the time. And even if the guy does write back, only about 20% of those conversations lead to them exchanging numbers or going out, which is even more rejection.
