The search for growth continues for Tinder. They have done everything possible to monetize the app it's now entering the ridiculous phase. The problem is that no serious competitor has come along to destroy this app.


A business who treats it's paying customers like garbage has no reason to exist and this search for growth is an evidence.

Compared to the initial algorithm, the algorithm of today designed to hide the profile of paying customers can only be useful after a noob boost and reset

Today There is no point having a stable account on Tinder or paying for any of it's services, just reset each time you need to use it and delete and delete the account

The reason is they detect you're an old paying customer and refuse to show your profile, to force you to buy $6 boost, $3 read reciept and $30 super boost which by the way don't work.

You better have a good text game to get them off the app and onto SMS once you get the match from noob boost, Tinder is no place for learners

RE: Tinder App
Who would pay to see if a girl has checked a message? If she doesn't respond within 48 hrs, next her, I'm not paying for the privilege of seeing my message on read.

Tinder must be a goldmine for money, so many thirsty guys out there.

RE: Tinder App
I think if you update your profiel with new text and new photos, then your profile will be bumped up.
Does anyone notice more activity when you update your profile?

RE: Tinder App
I notice that superlikes are not "working" for me any more like they used to a couple of months or more back...
(I'm not getting matches with them using my 1 per day on somewhat realistic targets).

I wonder if:
a)they don't work like they used to, not always shown to girls even if you're outside their age/etc range
b)the superlike is played-out and even "average" (compatible/comparable to you) girls are getting too many of them
c)something like a "shadowban" or whatever is affecting my account

I have gold membership and drop a decent amount of super likes and get almost no returns these days. Its just been a slow decline, super likes are basically the new normal like. Most girls won't even see you if you just normally like them and arent in the top 20%.

RE: Tinder App
Although definitely not as effective as before, a well-placed super like still gets me a good yield. My account can be dead with 0 matchers in weeks but super likes can still get me matches.

Tonight, I did my routine refresh. My account was killing it and I got 3 numbers in <10 min of girls DTF this weekend. Figured I'd see how well my account could do, so I bought a one month trial of Tinder Plus. Account instantly killed. Match queue immediately dried up. Ran a boost, only got 2 matches.

Didn't buy it with my iTunes account so cant say I was linked to anything. Used a new credit card too.

Looks like short term noob boost as a free "new" user > paying member and running a tinder boost

RE: Tinder App
Is it a scam if a girl gives you her phone number
after matching on tinder?
But then she disappears immedaitely afterwards?
What will happen if I call or text her phone number?
Will they try to scam me or steal my identity?

RE: Tinder App
Guys, these neverending reboots and reinstalls aren't doing you any favours.

Basically your profile needs to gain traction, and it does that through matches and conversations with attractive women. The more matches and conversations you're having with attractive women (which takes time) the more visible your profile becomes. The algorithm likes it when you're interacting and when other users are interacting with you. Like I said though, the caveat is it needs to be a certain quality of women to ensure you're then shown to that same quality of women.

I've noticed that. Last year I would get a fair amount of like backs using my one-a-day superlike. I think I had a grand total of 0 for months before I ended up uninstalling. I'll probably re-install when I feel motivated to update my pics and bio. Regarding the bio though, I noticed a lot of women have profiles that are totally blank. It got to the point where I became uninterested in the app and swiping right without even looking at the photo. I guess I didn't give a shit anymore.

RE: Tinder App
I'll add my 2 cents:

I currently live in a big European capital city which gets a lot of tourists and started to use Tinder for the first time in my life about 3 months ago. My profile has 2 pics, none of them a professional or anything. My bio is the languages I speak, my height and that's it. I'm mid-30s, good looking, 6'4'' and athletic. I never did a reset, switched accounts, etc. Paid for unlimited swipes in the past but not anymore.

The amount of matches I get varies quite a bit, but I'd say that I get about 10-15 per week. Mostly 6s, but occasionally some 7s and 8s. Of these matches, 50%-60% turn into decent convos. Most of the convos could result in dates but since I'm working full-time, cannot meet up with all of them. Basically, I almost could have a date with a new girl any day of the week if I wanted (without resorting to meeting up with beasts or anything below a 6). My pipeline is full and my main bottleneck is lack of spare time. Out of respect for the new forum rules, I'll abstain from going into details, but it has been an eye-opening experience. Truly.

I don't use tinder anymore but this is accurate. Who you talk to matters most.

I think reporting spam accounts is good also but I have no proof

RE: Tinder App
Theoretical Tinder Protip: passporting to another country for a several days or a week. the country has to be one that most assuredly likes the type of man you are and you will get an immediate influx of matches. Maybe do this in 2-3 countries and then passport back to homebase with an substantially better ELO.

What do you guys think?

I do this all the time, i think it helps a lot to refresh my profile

I think having an old profile that has gained traction works as well. I'm talking 1 year old account that has received hundreds of likes in the past. Seems to perform well from my experience compared to a fresh account after noob boost period has expired and the new account goes back to normal.

I have several old profiles that are moved around between cities where i know i get a lot of likes, usually large urban capital cities, then i bring them back to my home city. This usually improves the number of matches to one per day, maybe 7 a week. I usually do this when i notice the girls have disliked my profile so much it's not getting shown anymore and the matches dry up.

This method confirms that the first thing about Tinder is location. If you live in a large city with lots of dynamism, it would be hard for you to understand why people never get success on the App. Seriously you'd have more matches than you can meet up with. I know this because sometimes i'm pipelining for a trip using Tinder and location change and the results are massively different. A lot of matches in big cities

The best is still to make a fresh account at the right time and get the noob boost for 48hours. This usually gets quick results. But after 1 week, the matches dry up exponentially and you might as well delete the account.

My main issue is with unmatching girls. Unmatching seems to destroy the elo score. I have heard several cases where am talking to time wasters who don't wanna meet up. I'd love to unmatch them so they don't clutter up space but it seems after I unmatch, my profile stops being shown around.

the same thing happens in the reverse case, when a girl unmatches , it seems my profile stops being shown around, maybe the algorithm assumes i said something creepy to her. But in reality, it was just an attention seeker/ time waster who got drunk while out with friends (usually thurs/fri/sat nights) and gets on tinder and starts swiping with friends for fun. The next day you wake up on sunday morning, Oh there is a match, you send the first message, she wakes up realizes she doesn't really want this and unmatches. This has a very devastating effect on my elo score i think as afterwards i need to move the profile around to refresh.

I don't think this would help as the ELO would be adjusted based on regionality and average it out, at least I didn't notice an uptick in London after passporting to Moscow to check out the talent, 70ish likes within 24hrs then changed back to home, no difference, I think it actually lead to a downtick.
