“The fact that college students are using Tinder at all shows they are not finding what they want on their own campuses, where they are surrounded by so many other singles who are so similar to themselves,” said Kathleen Bogle, who wrote a book about campus dating, in an email.“That fact alone is interesting.” “When I interviewed [students], I asked them to dream up how they would [prefer to] get together in a romantic, sexual relationship,” Bogle said, and they had a hard time answering.
The "2015 College Dateability Rankings" are based on whether users said " yes," "no" or "maybe" to potential matches.

Only 20 percent of the 200 students surveyed by campus jobs start-up Way Up said they used the app for casual sex, and less than a third said they were looking for a significant other. At least a few people are indeed looking for friends on Tinder, Paul said, which she knows because she’s met some of them, but they weren’t college students.
Two hundred students isn’t a very large pool -- the app is estimated to have 50 million subscribers -- and is this even a question students would answer honestly?
“I find it a little bit of a stretch of reality that they’re looking for friends -- with that agenda -- with this app,” she said.
Students are already surrounded by loads of people their own age with similar interests and plenty of opportunity to interact, she explained -- a near-perfect petri dish for incubating friendships.
