It is increasingly clear that being single has ceased to be a misfortune. As the surveys that Tindercarried out in his advertising campaign already demonstrated , in which the multiple benefits of singleness were portrayed, under the motto “Single, Not Sorry” , a large majority of the population (72%, to be precise) he has actively decided to be single or single at some point in his life.
And, although in many contexts it is still a form of social stigma, especially when we approach quarantine, the truth is that there are endless experiences and good feelings that are only available to single people: meet other people, have stimulating experiences, discover new ways of fun … And, in recent years, it also allows you to explore the universe of online dating, and more particularly, of Tinder, the most famous dating app in the market.
The popularization of this application among people without a partner has inevitably led to the emergence of some myths and stereotypes associated with its use, such as that those who use it ‘only look for one thing’, that ‘there are only rare people’ or that it is for desperate people. Well, it may surprise you to know that reality is very far from all these prejudices: as the data from the Tinder surveys revealed, the use of these applications has been extended to the point that many use it for the sole purpose of making friends. To this is added that the number of stable and consolidated couples that met thanks to Tinder or other similar apps is increasing.
Precisely it has been Modern de Pueblo, the famous and fun illustrations that portray the current woman with a touch of humor and sarcasm, who have decided to uncover 4 of the most widespread myths of Tinder:
The data revealed by the application show a claim of singleness, but also the empowerment of women. As the data reflects, 54% of single women say they feel independent while being single, while 81% of millennials (women and men) claim singleness as the optimal status for making new friends.
The end of the fairy tale in which we eat partridges with our prince charming is a thing of the past. Today millions of users use the application simply to meet new people and live other experiences. 37% of respondents said that thanks to an appointment with other Tinder users they had discovered a new bar or restaurant.
Nothing is further from the truth: 40% of users have said that online dating is a way of ‘seeing what’s in the market’. In turn, 1 in 3 young people who participated in the survey stated that appointments in Tinder are also a tool to get to know themselves better and understand what they want in a possible partner.
