Tinder isn't just for hookups: 7 Other reasons women use it
When you think about Tinder, you think hookup app, right? Tinder is notoriously known for being the app that's destroying dating and creating a hookup culture. But that's not entirely true.
Women recently revealed their reasons for using the app on a Reddit thread titled "Women who use tinder, what are you actually looking for?" Below are seven honest answers.
1. For love
Yes, there are some women out there who are genuinely looking for love and Tinder does have some success stories.
Reddit user Snowblower99 shared her story about unexpectedly finding love via Tinder — even if that wasn't her original intention.
Another Reddit user shared similar sentiments.
2. For a tour guide
Love's a great reason, but the app is useful for other things, too. Like meeting people in a foreign country.
3. To learn new languages
Tinder is also apparently a very helpful tool when it comes to trying out your foreign language skills.
4. For a little attention
When you've just had your heart broken or come out of a toxic relationship, Tinder can provide you with some much-needed distractions and endless hours of entertainment.
5. To meet someone cool to hang out with
Who says you can't use Tinder just to make friends?
6. To save time
Sometimes there's no time to go out and look for men in the local bar, shopping centre or sports club, so Tinder is a great option for those busy people who just have no time to connect.
7. But some of us just really like swiping
