Hello friends. I need your help in teaching me how to use tinder. I've had the app for a while but I've been mostly "browsing", swiping, but now I'm ready to converse with/maybe meet some guys. I have a few quick (stupid) questions!

- can I tell if someone has been online lately? I'd like to know if sending a message is pointless or not.

- Is tinder still considered a hookup (ie SEX) app? Can a meaningful relationship be found or am is this just about casual sex?

Please help. This technology is confusing me and making me feel super old.
