I made sure to keep the most memorable candidates forever immortalized with screenshots to share with my husband later and trust me, it was a genuine bonding experience.)My only knowledge of Tinder pre-experiment was the occasional screenshot from single friends on Facebook.I knew it had a sort of "hot or not" element when it came to swiping right or left, and I also had a vague understanding that the app was meant for those looking for a casual hookup. At first it was fun reading through each profile and judging each candidate on what matters to me now at 32: a work ethic, a sense of humor and proper grammar.Keeping those things in mind, my guard was already up, and I felt a bit like livestock headed in to auction: Would I sell? Rather than what would have mattered 14 years ago: world travels, nice clothes and expensive cars.(Oh, I should also mention that I'm a professional photographer and after sorting through a dozen profiles, I wanted to sit a majority of these boys down and have a serious talk with them about camera angles, lighting and what’s "appropriate" for an online dating profile.Hint: Wearing a black mask while sitting in a cemetery is not.)Another observation: The amount of guys shooting guns and/or holding up dead animal carcasses was crazy. There was also a consistent theme of craft beer, dogs and guitars. After about 10 minutes, I finally decided to right swipe a guy who wasn't my type physically, but seemed to have his wits about him through his 400 word bio, which suggested education and mindfulness.
And 29% of Americans now know someone who met a spouse or other long-term partner through online dating, up from just 15% in 2005.

Even today, online dating is not universally seen as a positive activity—a significant minority of the public views online dating skeptically.
At the same time, public attitudes towards online dating have grown more positive in the last eight years: Additionally, 32% of internet users agree with the statement that “online dating keeps people from settling down because they always have options for people to date.” This is the first time we have asked this question.
In general, online daters themselves give the experience high marks.
