If you’re hoping to find your soulmate on Tinder, your odds might be a little worse than you thought . . .

A new poll found only a third of Tinder users are even SINGLE.  65% said they’re “in a relationship” or MARRIED.

Not all of those people are in happy relationships.  50% of users overall said they’re looking for love.  So some of those people might be looking to upgrade . . . or maybe just cheat.

Still, that means half of Tinder users aren’t looking for dates at all.  So why are they even on there?

According to the poll, a few reasons:  Because they’re bored and want a distraction . . . because they want to feel socially connected . . . and because just judging people’s looks can be a form of entertainment.

Getting a little ego boost is another reason.  Even if you’re not looking to date, it might feel good to match with someone and know they swiped right.
