But, dismissing this app would be a mistake, and I can give you 50 million reasons in 196 countries worldwide to convince you. Over the past few months, I've used Tinder Plus (premium subscription / worldwide) to "informally research" Tinder users (women and men) across a wide age-range (25-50) all over the world. Here are examples copied from Tinder profiles in the United States: Not looking for a hook-up, but thanks for the thought . Afraid of matching and chatting with a married person? Oh, but wait, it also happens in bars, restaurants, at speed dating events, and through matchmaking services. Trust your instincts and make sure your partner is on the same page.
Are these women hiding their true intentions about hooking-up? In fact, many find them superficial because of how simple they are. Whatever the case, Tinder is popular and has brought online dating to the masses.
The first prominent online dating site was Match.com, which launched in 1995.
e Harmony started in 2000, Ok Cupid in 2004, and more recently, a wave of mobile people-swiping apps, like Tinder and Hinge, have become wildly popular.
If you're single and looking, keep an open mind and check it out.
