“Many younger men are more connected with their peers than they are with the idea of being a couple,” explains Naples, FL-based author and relationship columnist April Masini.
The most amazing outcome of the research is how free and open format of Tinder together with the natural differences in strategies between genders undermines resulting service functionality making the overall experience more and more frustrating over time.
Free format of profile without any questionnaire to fill in like on the traditional dating websites creates the situation in which the service brings together people looking for different things without necessarily stating clearly their expectations in profiles, and those things differ a lot between genders.
First, what fascinated me is how the complex research with a lot of data analysis involved is confirming all the qualitative empirical observations that one can get by using service and talking to people.
Most of assumptions that I pr my friends had about Tinder are confirmed in the paper, but with lots of numbers, which could make it more credible or not really — as the research was based just in 2 locations: London and NYC which might have significant difference as the cultural context plays huge role in dating habits and strategies of users.
