19 Facts About Tinder, The “Dating” App For Thirsty People –

Back in my single days, if the normal pick-up scenes weren’t working, it was AOL chatrooms or bust. Or, AOL chatroom and bust..? Nowadays, however, there is an app for everything—including hooking up. Tinder, in case you’ve been under a rock for the last few years, is an app that matches you with other people, allowing you to swipe right if you like them, or left if you don’t. If you both swipe right on each other, it’s a match and you go at it like bunnies, apparently.

As with life, timing on Tinder is everything. The evening hours are peak time. Surprisingly, you’re also more likely to get a match early in the week than you are over the weekend.

You may think that having the best pictures will ensure you the most matches. You’re wrong though. Looks aren’t everything you shallow ass. 96% of users report that education is a key component when they swipe. 96% of users are also liars, how ironic.

You probably think that men are the most prominent Tinder users. Wrong! Women actually spend more time on the app, though they swipe right more over 30% less often than men. Women… always shopping.

With over 50 million people using Tinder, there are as many as 1.6 BILLION swipes a day. A DAY! That’s almost as much as I got rejected in my teens!

Extremely picky? Tinder doesn’t like your bullshit. No picky enough? Tinder wishes you had better taste. If you never swipe, or very rarely you will be shown far less matches. If you swipe on everything, the app marks you as a scammer and you’ll stop getting matches.
