ALEX WALTERS, JUNIOR, ASU

What word first comes to mind when you hear “Tinder?”
‘Guys,’ I guess. I would say ‘guys’ or ‘dating.’ Definitely [a]college-type atmosphere comes to mind with Tinder. My friends back home, that don’t go to university, they don’t think it’s a thing. A lot of my friends here at college use it, especially a lot of my guy friends use it.

Have you ever joined a dating app or website? Why or why not?
Not yet. We’ll see, as of right now, no. Mostly because I just feel like I’ve been OK with meeting people. If I really wanted to go out and find somebody that I wanted to meet for dating purposes, then I have good opportunities to. And I know enough people that if I wanted to, they could introduce me to somebody.

Do you think the effect of these technology-driven matchmaking sites is positive or negative? Why?
I think it depends on who uses it and how they use them. I mean some people could use them for like casual hookups and then other people could use them because they legitimately want to go meet somebody.

What word first comes to mind when you hear “Tinder?”
When I hear ‘Tinder,’ I immediately think of ‘swipe.’ You know, swipe left or right on people.

Have you ever joined a dating app or website? Why or why not?
Nah, I don’t have a Tinder or anything like that. I don’t know. It makes me feel kind of uncomfortable. Like, the whole meeting online thing. I don’t know, I mean, I’m kind of awkward so I feel like I’d be more comfortable offline.

Do you think the effect of these technology-driven matchmaking sites is positive or negative? Why?
I think it kind of depends on like how people are using it. Like, my brother uses it and it seems like he’s doing just fine. I don’t know, I really think it depends on the person. He’s got a couple, like Tinder and that one where it shows you people you’ve walked by. I think they’re going well for him, so I’d say for him it had a positive effect.
