Popular dating sites for college students
(ASU is a partner with Slate and New America in Future Tense.) Sure, using Tinder came with some mildly negative and not-so-mildly awkward experiences.
But freshman year, I also met my first college boyfriend on the app.
Sitting on our dorm room floor, my roommate and I sped through profile after profile, quickly analyzing each user as one would apples in a grocery store.
According to a recent study, a huge 91% of college students surveyed said they were using dating apps for more than just hookups.
Conducted by ABODO, the study called “Swipe Right For Love?
Over 50% of Grindr users reported having experienced harassment on the app, as did 40% of Ok Cupid users.
Interestingly, those on Tinder reported the least harassment, with just 26% of students saying they had experienced it.
