The researchers then used a statistical technique to group those ratings into general categories.

While this open-ended data is valuable, it doesn't provide the whole story on why people use Tinder.
Participants in Le Febvre's study were asked what their motivations for their behaviors.
Since its launch in 2012, the dating app, Tinder, has received quite a bit of publicity.
It's one of the most popular lifestyle apps with over 10 million daily active users.
The most common motives for using Tinder were because it's exciting and because it's trendy.
Another common motive that wasn't cited in the Le Febvre study was self-worth validation.
Only about 5% of those surveyed indicated that the desire for hookups was their main motivation for joining the site. The participants were also asked what they thought the purpose Tinder was.
When it came to people’s perceptions, not surprisingly, they were true to stereotype.
51.5% said they believed Tinder was designed for hooking up, 33.5% said dating, and 15% meeting people.
The researchers then coded participants' responses into categories.
So what was the most commonly cited reason for using Tinder?
