“It’s turned into a game,” said Tim Smith, a 21-year-old student from Hampstead, Md.When he’s bored, he swipes on women on Tinder, even when he doesn’t feel like talking to anyone.

Credit mobile dating apps such as Tinder, which incorporate fun elements and are dead simple to use.That rose to 27 percent in the latest Pew study, which was released Thursday. That includes gays, lesbians and middle-aged straight people, he said.“Conversely, single people (college students, for example) who are fortunate enough to inhabit an environment full of eligible potential partners may not need to actively search for partners at all,” he wrote.“I don’t know how to say this without sounding like a scumbag, but I used it as a confidence boost,” he said.But he said he wouldn’t use Tinder to find a significant other because he thinks it’s harder to trust people you meet on the app.
