Why is Tinder full of married men? Find out.

It comes as no surprise that there are a plethora of married men on Tinder. My friends even coined the term MBA (married but available) for them. So what is it that brings these men on Tinder? Is it just window shopping, exploring a new app or are they bored of monogamy? We asked a few colleagues and friends who are on Tinder to ask the MBAs what brings them to Tinder and here are some responses:

My sex life is non-existent. We don t have sex for months at an end and this has been the case from the time we got married. I tried to avoid straying but we all have needs. My wife doesn t understand so I decided to have a casual fling. I don t mean to leave her ever but I need intimacy too, says Chirag from Ahmedabad. Read: 6 types of creeps you will find on Tinder.

I started using Tinder because I had to move to a new city for work without my family. Besides my colleagues, I needed friends in the city. So the idea of connecting with like-minded people of the opposite sex to hang out in the evenings seemed right. I am upfront about my status and not looking for sex. As funny as it may sound, I am here only to make friends, says Viraj from Nashik.
