18 dating site teen under

As a precaution, minors on Tinder can see only other minors. D., a clinical psychologist who specializes in adolescents, says, “If that’s how they’re making conversation, cut it off.”Adults who want to prey on children can lie about their age too.“We want people to be safe,” says Rosette Pambakian, Tinder’s vice president of global communica- tions and branding. In 2012 the meeting app Skout temporarily suspended its under-18 section, which had safeguards similar to Tinder’s, after adult men were accused of raping and sexually assaulting minors in three separate incidents.The company won’t reveal its exact number of users, but it did disclose that 2.5 percent are people ages 13 to 17.If you do the math based on a late-2014 story in The New York Times, which reported that the app had nearly 50 million active users at the time, you’re left with well over a million users under 18 on the platform.Tinder gathers a user’s basic information and matches them with potential candidates that are most likely to be compatible based on geographical location, number of mutual friends, and common interests.If users “like” each other, they are alerted and are then able to start a private messaging conversation.

You will also find dating sites or meeting places for students in their 20s.

But Sloan, 17, a senior in Tyler, Texas, says dating apps are becoming more popular among her friends.

This past August she started interning for Bumble—the app works like Tinder, but only women are allowed to initiate conversations—which entails promoting it at her school.

However, Mary Jo Rapini, a psychotherapist who specializes in relationships, doesn’t see any positives.

“Many people using the app aren’t teens,” she notes.
