According to Tinder data, members aged between 18-25 often choose their zodiac sign as the number one description on their profile page, and more than 41% also believe in manifestation, sharing their attraction goals they believe in on their personal profile page. Thai members also indicate that they are “Moo” (a term referring to someone who believes in fate or destiny) on their profile, up to three times more.
