Tinder users should be aware of the potential risks, and the benefits this app would offer to the internet troll.Results of our study show that internet trolls may troll as a dysfunctional impulse, and cost-free dating apps may offer the perfect opportunity to do it.
Considering the easy and free access to Tinder (although there is a paid Tinder Plus option too), this would certainly satisfy the dysfunctional impulse of the troll, on contrast to paid sites such as e Harmony.In addition, these internet trolls are likely to be motivated by negative social rewards, meaning they are reinforced by creating a disruptive social environment.But our new research shows trolls also pose a real threat to online dating, marring a potentially positive social (and even romantic) experience.There are plenty of websites and platforms for online dating such as e Harmony and RSVP.Mobile phone apps for dating have also gained popularity.But our research, published in Personality and Individual Differences, found that some people who use these methods of finding love have a far more antisocial agenda.
I’ve already discussed how internet trolls in general are more likely to be male, and are more likely to have higher levels of “darker” personality traits, including nonclinical psychopathy and sadism.
Tinder trolls also had levels of dysfunctional impulsivity, suggesting that this behaviour could also be difficult to control.
We found that women and men were equally likely to troll others on this dating app.

There are many advantages of online dating, such as a wider network of potential romantic partners and the opportunity to engage in social interactions with less discomfort.
