For the study, the scientists created 14 fake profiles of male and female Tinder users and set them loose in New York and London.
how many matches they'd make) and how many messages they would receive from users they'd matched with. The fake men only matched with others 0.6% of the time.
The fake women, on the other hand, matched with others 10.5% of the time.
Interestingly, most of the matches for the fake women fake men came from men, suggesting that homosexual men are more willing to swipe right than heterosexual women are.
Meanwhile, on OKCupid, where men and women can message each other, women gain an advantage when they send a note to men instead of waiting to receive one.
Another interesting finding from the new Tinder study: The researchers say most Tinder activity happens around 9 a.m. So perhaps, for some people, Tinder is more like a game than anything serious — just a way to pass the time and maybe get something out of it.
