RE: Tinder App
Definitely something fishy going on, thought I’d try it out and get tinder plus, boom 5 matches within an hour where usually I get 3 per day on average.

It’s probably a bonus boost to make you think it’s money well spent

RE: Tinder App
In my experience tinder is far more extreme with the newb boost these days. Its always been a thing that you get more likes when you first make an account there, usually 1-2 days then things drop off but you still used to get some matches.

Now the newb boost still exists for 1-2 days but now instead of a gradual decrease in matches I will get completely nothing at all after the first 2 days. Recently I had an account that had 70 likes after 2 days then got 1 match after I activated my gold for the next week+.

Though the thing is if I don't activate gold I will just not match with 50% of the girls who already liked me. So damned if you do damned if you don't.

I am pretty sure my account/Apple ID is fucked as ive used numerous 3rd party apps over the years and reset my account many times.

Its a shame to think that the people who actually pay for tinder+/gold are the ones who usually benefit from it the least.

Hopefully someone will come up with something that can actually compete with tinder in the near future.

RE: Tinder App
@quaker13 - Pro pics are the one step I haven't taken as the cost and hassle for something I might not even like didn't seem worth it. Additionally it didn't seem necessary since worse looking guys without pro photos seemed to be having success. I might as well give it one last shot and reset my account with them.

Besides professional photos are those of you having success paying to play? If so what is most effective that the free account fails?

Are you getting Plus/Gold and swiping hundreds and hundreds of profiles nearly clearing out your stack in just a few days?

Are you purchasing boosts?

Are you utilizing the top picks?

How? How would you design an app that can compete with Tinder? I mean there are lots of people out there trying... and virtually none succeeding.

All the smart money is in milking average and low end men for cash, while dangling the carrot of potential sex in front of them.

My guess is that if you want to reset the market, then you need to legalize prostitution and then rent control the bitches at like $50 a bang. The basic problem in my opinion is a sex supply and demand issue. If New York legalizes prostitution, then we will get a chance to see if I'm correct in this.

RE: Tinder App
Lots of people are getting it on tinder, don't let this thread turn into incel speak.

You need: Attractive photos + good location.

If you have those you will get with someone of your attractiveness or 1 point below pretty easily (less than a week)

Tinder is not "fucking you over", there is simply nothing a company can do to force women to swipe right on you.
Someone attractive with good photos and decent text game is going to have way more success with a free account over the guy with 5 lame selfies that bought tinder gold, boosts and messages the few matches he gets with boring interview questions she has read 1000 times.

The boosts are the "pay2win" feature but they are not really necessary, I average around 3 to 5 matches daily after my profile is "calibrated", if I use a boost (I only pay for plus so I boost once a month), I might get around 20 to 25 extra matches from that.

I have seen first hand how friends of mine with unattractive profiles buy boosts and literally get 0 matches, so the attractive profile (without paying a cent) still wins no matter how pay2win the platform becomes.

I don't think that anyone believes people are not hooking up off Tinder. I'm going to be blunt and say some guys will never be as successful as others.

My main issue with Tinder is that it ego inflates and enables mediocre sluts meanwhile makes average guys feel like shit. If I were Emperor of the world I would force tinder into bell curved 1 to 10 scale rating that shows women exactly where they are at compared to other girls. I would be money that with a reality check in place, women would not be constantly trying to chase and score 9's... or their version of a 9 at least.

I agree that it ego inflates, but the cat is out of the bag. The best thing we can all do is focus in ourselves instead of blaming society. And women didn't get their egos out of thin air, desperate men fed them with attention and groveling.

If you want a good laugh ask a woman above a 6 to show you what other men message to her
(I have seen men sending them concert tickets for nothing, 10x consecutive messages with no replies, begging, offering to pay, etc).

On a society level, the only remedies are bringing down obesity levels (To increase the pool of available women) and teaching men not to grovel to the ground for women (game).

I pay for play. I travel a lot for business and pleasure and I like having a pipeline going into which ever the prospective city is. That in and of itself is worth it's weight in gold

More to the point how do men become top picks? Hypergamy doesn’t care for those who are not Top Picks.

RE: Tinder App
This new algorithm or whatever it is; it’s both useful and a scam. So you get an initial boost which I have successfully used to meet a lottt of girls, however, it shortly dies and you’re left with a random number in your queue.

I am pretty confident those matches aren’t even real. It’s a scam to get you to pay, I have tried swiping left for hours and the number of matches never goes down.

RE: Tinder App
The "likes" number includes girls you already swiped left on, that's why it never goes down.

It's not about the app, it's literally just about your SMV and if you are older than 29 then tinder goes downhill.

I get worried when I read the word "scam" more and more on a gaming forum, like you are supposed to pay x amount a month and you are going to get hundreds of women willing to talk to you.

Yeah of course you're right. From a business perspective they are killing it so there is zero incentive to make things more 'even' or fair to men. That's where they make all their money. Lets face it what women are paying for tinder+/gold/boosts? Literally none.

The real problem with it all is as mentioned many times, the unbelievable thirst and desperation of the majority of men these days. Literally any woman who is a 5 (or even less I suspect) has 1000 likes waiting within hours of creating an account.

RE: Tinder App
I got this blacklist thing people are talking about. I have pretty much ignored the issue for like 2 months expecting it would go away with time. But doesnt seem like it does?

Do I seriously have to create a new facebook and yada yada to get this fixed or did anyone have it go away over time? I cancelled my subscription for now at least, seems stupid to have it rolling when the app is impossible to use.

If you mean shadowban (You can't match/message) then yes, you have to create another account with a different number (you don't need facebook).

Thanks..Some of the guides claim you need to have a new account in the appstore as well to avoid getting connected with your old one if you are buying a subscription. Is this true?

As soon as I go below 30 a week then I quit the app or restart.

If they aren't attractive you aren't being selective enough on your swiping. The whole point of matching is that you both find each other attractive, of course a few girls slip under the radar until you get a closer look but half is way too much.

RE: Tinder App
I haven't had any success on Tinder in the last two months. Only been on for just over two months but zero dates. Not sure what I might be doing wrong but all my efforts have been unsuccessful. It feels like I was swiping forever on this thing, and I was being picky none of that swipe right only crap. Things were so much different 4-5 years ago, and now, all I hear is a little violin HuhHuh

If you're in a reasonably sized area and you're getting no matches you need better pictures, its as simple as that.

I also remember a few years ago getting allot of matches with average photos but times have changed. I am still in the process of updating my photos but I've managed to take a few better ones already and my matches went up again.

Your photos may have been good enough a few years ago but the bar for men online is getting higher all the time and girls have more options than ever. If you want to make tinder work and start getting dates out of it, getting better photos is the only way.

RE: Tinder App
Now it all makes sense.

Remember the major match slowdown right before they introduced Boost?

Now, this (Only for Gold and Plus members), and its something around $30 for 3 hours of "Super Boost".

https://blog.gotinder.com/introducing-super-boost/

We get it, nobody likes lines. That’s why we’re testing the ability for Tinder Gold and Plus subscribers to purchase an upgrade that helps them cut to the front and be seen by up to 100x more potential matches. Yep, you read that correctly: up. to. one. hundred. times. more. views. Get ready for Super Boost.

We understand that, at times, it could be easy to feel like you’re a small fish in a large pond of perfected selfies and Bali vacation pics. With Super Boost’s powers, which are borderline supernatural, you’ll have the spotlight on you during peak times — when Tinder activity is on fire.

With Super Boost, you won’t have to worry if that cutie who also actually liked the GoT finale even saw your profile. More visibility means more potential matches. That’s right — Super Boost is the ultimate Tinder hack.

Boosts went up in price, in the long run it is better for non paying users since not so many people will buy boosts now.

Male thirst must be really bad, I reset my Tinder a while ago (new number, new photos, everything to ensure no linkage) I looked at getting Gold for an upcoming trip so I can utilise my time better and it costs $20, when did the pricing go up?

I can't believe that people are paying $20 for Gold and now this $30 Super Boost, what's wrong with people!!
