Since pretty much becoming the only way that people date these days, the general (slightly offensive) consensus is that women approach Tinder like some kind of sex weary 1920s housewife - whereas men approach it like sweaty sex pests with a taste for flesh and smut.
According to the responses of a recent Reddit thread asking ladies outright why they use the app, we’d argue that the majority of both men and women approach it in a similar way, because you know, we're all humans.
One that’s a rough middle ground between the too lusty and the wary that says: "I want to hook up with someone that’s not insane and I don’t want to be forever alone".
Here are the ten best (and most revealing) responses from the Redditors.
Its like playing a game. like, oh look! I matched with the shirtless man holding a fish! I get 10 points!
I used Tinder during my summer abroad to practice my French with locals in Paris. I never met up with any of them though, because that's how people get Taken.
My friends and I decided we wanted to make a dick-a-day calendar for a friend who is getting married so we trolled it for dick pics. I ended up with a boyfriend instead.
Someone to go down on me
I am looking for a normal guy to date and see if it can turn into something. Maybe he won't work, maybe he will become my best friend, only a regular sex friend, a boyfriend for a while, my future husband... who knows?
The love of an emotionally distant father.
Someone cool to hang out with and see if it turns into something. I've actually hung out with like 4 guys, 2 were duds, and 2 are amazing. Went on 1 date with each and have 2nd dates set up with each. I have no idea what to do if both of the second dates go well...
Sex. Someone to smoke weed with.
Ideally, I'd like a boyfriend. If I happen to meet somebody with whom I clicked well with sexually but doesn't have long term potential, I'd be ok with a fwb situation. But that's not what I'm looking for.
