Do people only use Tinder for hooking up? Watch

I have never used Tinder before and I am contemplating downloading it because I feel lonely.

I am 18 years old, never been in a relationship or anything like that. I am not from the UK and so where I am from Tinder wasn't popular or mainstream.

I heard that people only use Tinder for hooking up. So, by setting up an account and planning a date, would it be highly presumed by my date that I want something physical? Because I only want to go out on cute dates and genuinely get to know people.

Dk how stupid my question sounds, but I am generally not up to date with the unwritten social conventions associated with Tinder

For many, yes. But not everyone; my brother just married a woman he met on Tinder.

Ngl I use tinder for mainly an ego boost.

It’s nice to match with girls so I know at least some extent I’m at least reasonably alright to look at 😅

Some do. Some don't. My friend uses it for dating. Had a relationship for a year with a girl he met on there.

Other apps, e.g. paid services, are better for finding a date than a hook-up. Although I've had a few relationships with people I met on Plenty of Fish and that was free.

A few? :shock:

I've been on there ages and haven't even had a decent conversation with anyone yet.

Idk if it’s different for straight people but for us gays it’s definitely used more for relationships. Grindr is our “hookup app”.
