While this study was primarily aimed toward women hence the larger number of women in the study and their perception of objectification and self-esteem, the researchers say the results suggest that men are just as affected by exploitation and low self-esteem as women, if not more.
Another theory I have is that this is a fast-decision making experience.
Tinder Conversations Don't Last Very Long So an average 20-something, college-educated midwesterner will match and message with about 1% of the profiles they come across.
Or is Tinder more like the T-Shirt Study? I wonder if Tinder users rely more on physical attractiveness or they take the time to read the short bio provided before deciding to swipe.
