TELEGRAPH - Apr 8 - Researchers at Webster Vienna Private University in Austria surveyed 75 users of Tinder or other dating agencies were asked to complete questionaires about their motivataion for online dating, and to rate their sociability, self-esteem and sexual permissiveness. The results did find that males were more likely than females to use these services to find a casual sex partner. However that finding is not confined to the world of internet dating. Previous studies have shown that similar patterns exist among males when seeking casual sex partners both online and offline. "The results of the current study are in line with a broader body of research indicating that nowadays users of online dating resemble those who do not use online dating. It is likely that as online dating continues to grow in popularity, its users are becoming increasingly diverse and therefore more reflective of the general population."
