A study carried out by Global-WebIndex has shown that one in three Tinder users are married.

The survey also found that one-in-ten users were in a relationship of some sort and only half declared themselves as 'fully single'.

Tinder, an international phenomenon in the social media dating world, evidently attracts more male users, as the app was perused regularly by 60 percent of men compared to 30 percent of women.

Not surprisingly, the research showed that many of the app's users were young and image conscience.

Just under half of Tinder's users were aged younger than 25, while only 4 percent are aged over 45.

Nine out of ten also revealed that their appearance and maintaining a healthy weight is very important to them.

Two thirds of respondents added that they liked to keep up to date with fashion trends.
