As a result of how the app works and what it requires of its users, people who are on Tinder after a while may begin to feel depersonalized and disposable in their social interactions, develop heightened awareness (and criticism) of their looks and bodies and believe that there is always something better around the corner, or rather with the next swipe of their screen, even while questioning their own worth, according to Strübel.
While this study was primarily aimed toward women (hence the larger number of women in the study) and their perception of objectification and self-esteem, the researchers say the results suggest that men are just as affected by exploitation and low self-esteem as women, if not more.
“Although current body image interventions primarily have been directed toward women, our findings suggest that men are equally and negatively affected by their involvement in social media,” said Strübel.
It is important to note that while users tended to have lower self-esteem, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the app is causing it, warned Strübel and Petrie. It could be just as likely that people with lower self-esteem are drawn more to these types of apps.
Because this study is one of the first to examine Tinder as a platform for observing men’s and women’s psychological functioning, Strübel suggests additional research is needed to help psychologists better understand the immediate, and perhaps long-term, effects of individuals’ involvement with these types of social media platforms.The process to access this information via Tinder Social requires some specialized technical skills. However, Alex created a program (Motherboard hasn’t independently verified that it works) that makes the process a bit more intuitive. The program is hosted on GitHub, an open source coding platform, and Alex asks users not to actually use it. The program requires the additional step of using the Python coding language on your own computer to run, meaning most Tinder bros will probably not be able to stalk their matches and Facebook crushes.
Alex wrote in his post that he alerted Tinder to the vulnerability with a support ticket, but received a response that simply said that “this is part of our feature called Tinder Social."
Tinder has not yet responded to Motherboard’s request for comment and we will update this post when we hear back.
Tinder justified the ability to see which of your Facebook friends use Tinder via Tinder Social with a statement that said “it’s important to note Tinder’s not a secret considering 70% of users download Tinder because their friends recommend it.” The Tinder blog post containing this quote now returns a 404 error, but the quote appeared in numerous reports on the feature’s launch in April.
While using Tinder may not be a secret for many people, the specific times that they log in could very well be.Have your female friends choose your photos.
Getting feedback on your pictures is essential. Grab your selection of pics and have your female friends rate them. Not only does this weed out all the weak ones, but it also lets you choose the best 3-5 photos. Use the most popular one as your primary picture.
You can also upload your potential pictures to a website like HotOrNot or PhotoFeeler.com, and get feedback that way. The more women who chime in, the better.

Get a feel for the conversation.
Just because she’s wearing a Broncos jersey in one of her profile pictures doesn’t mean she wants to have an in-depth discussion about the latest news out of training camp, warns longtime dating coach Nick Savoy.
If you’re talking about a topic that’s interesting to you, but you’re only getting brief responses, it’s time to take the conversation in a different direction.
Ask her out the right way.
Here at ViDA, we’ve learned that suggesting a “meetup” for coffee or drinks is the best way to ask her out. Our team of online dating experts analyzed thousands of online conversations that resulted in dates for our male clients, and giving her two activity options doubled the acceptance rate.
Both options are low-investment in terms of time and money. Plus, “meeting up” puts a lot less pressure on her than “a date” – a far more emotionally loaded word.
Coffee is a casual 30-minutes, whereas if you suggest dinner and a movie, she’s going to worry about being stuck with you for hours if things don’t look promising.
Also, suggesting a latte means you can avoid the
