Majority Of People On Tinder Are Not Using The App To Hook Up, But Rather To Find Friends. Cool.

Science says that the most amount of friends that a human brain can handle is 150. Oxford University Professor Robin Dunbar conducted his own study and asserts that the neocortex, the part of the brain used for conscious thought and language, limits humans to managing 150 friends, no matter how sociable we are. 150? That’s way too many. In my personal and totally unscientific opinion, I really don’t think you can have more than ten quality friendships. So for me, I’ve got enough friends. However, for me personally, I don’t think I could have enough hook ups. I would utilize a dating app to find women who would like to have a fun time as opposed to receiving a life sentence in the friendzone. But it appears that I am in the minority.

In a recent survey of 200 college students about their dating habits by WayUp, a startup for college jobs, they discovered that 58 percent of the respondents said that they had never used apps to go on actual dates. Fucking time wasters. The study also revealed that 53 percent of the participants stated that their main intent for using dating apps was to find new friends. Friends? Really? Only 27 percent reported using apps to find a significant other, and a mere 20 percent were actually honest and said they used the app to hook up. That number sounds a little low, especially when you figure that half of the population is horny dudes.

As far as the prefered dating apps 73 percent named Tinder as their favorite dating app, followed by Bumble at 13 percent and OkCupid with 10 percent. One person listed Facebook as their favorite dating site.

Cool. Good luck finding friends on dating apps. That sounds awesome.
