Try slightly changing your profile (like switching the order of 2 pictures) and slightly changing your preferences (+/- 5 miles). It usually prods the app to update your location too.

I feel bad for the dude, apparently he's been in the friendzone for years and now is finally having his chance.

In other news I get to see a new 20 year old tinder girl again tonight. She's lining up to be in my rotation.Banana

Heh. I can't keep a 19 or 20 year old's attention for shit on this. I'm early 30s and it's like you need to sprinkle a magic wand of golden Land Rover fleece dust in glimmering diamond paper in 2.5 words to keep their attention. 3-2-1 before someone suggests dick pic.

Give it time. The hotties swipe at night.

Most of my matches come at 12-2 am.

LOL.

It's a bit of an odd feeling seeing other guys using lines I've said but if it works for you, great.

I haven't posted much on this thread since last time but I will begin to. I'm getting pretty close to having a definitely guide for tinder. I'm currently working on cracking "moments" properly with the correct use of words and pictures. Some don't see it, but "moments" has a lot of potential for what I like to call, a "re-match".

There's been quite a few girls that I've successfully re-opened just because of the update. I'm talking girls who initially didn't respond to my first message.

This is app is gold if you know how to market yourself and see it all out.

If you just got the app, give it some time. As someone mentioned above, the girls tend to swipe at night and during the weekend (when they're looking for some side action). But, if you've had the app for a while and you haven't gotten any matches, I can help you out here.

Just answer these questions:
How many pictures do you have?
What are you doing in each picture? (this is very important)
What's does your bio contain?
What is your age and what is your specified age bracket on tinder? (the age bracket of the girls you decide to swipe on under settings)

So far my response rate is 50/50, and the women range in ages 21-25. I started a week ago and taking my first one out tomorrow night, wish me luck.

Interesting. But I've noticed a lot of girls in that age range have private profiles. Are you requesting to follow them, and then commenting on their pics? Or are you sending them DMs as if you were sending messages on Tinder?

It's a bit of a risky move if the girl has swiped left on you on Tinder and then sees you pop up on her IG. You might get the creep label. But I suppose if she's putting her IG on her Tinder for all to see (why do they do that?) then she doesn't mind either way?

I've always seen IG/Twitter handles on a girl's Tinder page as attention whoring. "I'll probably swipe left on you but feel free to follow me and stroke my ego on these other social media platforms!"

But if you're finding success, maybe there's something to it.

Yea I actually got 1 8 who matched me.. doesn't make sense because I swipe right on ALL, even 4s.. and none of them swiped back.

Do any of you guys get matches and then the second you message or even just after the girl unmatches? How often does that happen to you?

I think the tinder craze is coming to an end. Had way better results last year / early this year than now. Maybe something new is going on? It's not HotorNot...

RE: Tinder App
After countless messages I have to say most of my tinder experience has been catfishes... and I don't bang that shit.

I guess i'm failing on the text game, but seriously - the cute girls are getting hundreds of messages. Impossible to stand out, it seems. Will reboot soon.

A year from now you'll wish you started today

Your lines are pure gold man. I've only got the one bang so far but your lines are the perfect training wheels for working out new lines and a style that is congruent with me.

It takes time that's for sure. More important is what do your pics look like and what's your tagline state ?

RE: Tinder App
By no means does my bio state I am relationship material nor does it imply it. It is quite provocative.

And yet I get matches from homely single mothers and women who dont want a sex buddy. These women are genuinely shocked when I say Tinder is an app for people to meet and fuck.

It's usually straightforward - you just change the SIM card and go on a local plan.

Youngblood you are the gawd of tinder so I'm going to take you up on your offer. I get 4-6 matches per month, but usually only 2 I'd actually want to contact (I only swipe right on 7+, however). The conversations with the hot ones either go nowhere or they block me after my opener. Here are my answers:
1. 6 pictures
2. selfie with a hot female friend (new thing I'm trying out); torso up pic of me in suit and tie, smiling at camera; natural shot of me in conversation, holding a beer, rocking nice blazer and pocket square; cottage environs, full-body shot in cool casual outfit; good looking friend and I posing at Grand Canyon; "party" pic of me in new orleans drinking a "hand grenade" and miming the action of pulling the pin on the 'nade
3. bio: "Pretty fly for a bureaucrat. I read a lot, travel as much as I can, and enjoy nice things." (I live in a government town and working for the government is kind of the "elite" thing to do. I have tried a number of completely different taglines but haven't noticed any difference)
4. I'm 29 (30 in a few days...) and I'm set to 18-32.

I'm not a bad-looking guy and my (limited) real-life conquests have been 7-9s, yet I have only matched with one 9 in six months of using tinder. Here's how that went:

Me: (in response to her bio, which read "politics, fashion and rock n roll") More of a sex drugs rock n roll type of guy but politics and fashion are alright too
Her: (in response to my bio) lol I noticed you are a policy wonk - I am too! Smile
Me: Nice to meet another egghead haha. Ottawa has got to be the only place one would brag about that. I work for the feds - you?
Her: (mistakenly thinking I mean something else) Food Inspection Agency - not quite as exciting lol
Me: Cool, we're on the same team then. Let's see what else we've got in common. Insert your number here ___________
*blocked*

I realize talking about work was a bad idea but it seemed the obvious direction to go after the policy wonk comment--and I could see this girl is actually quite involved in federal politics, as am I, so it was a bit of a gambit. What else could I have done? Thanks in advance for your reflections.

I do not have a timeline, and I have a girl 7+ in all except 1 picture, some exotic backgrounds.

Every single girl who has matched with me (5 now) has not responded at all and un-matched with me. I've used some of YoungBlood's lines too

I've swiped about 400 now over 3 days in NYC.

I DM them, and follow them for a bit or request. If they dont respond or approve my request its a dead lead. The ones that start chatting approve me and respond to my DM. When I DM them I say something like, "hey, we matched on Tinder but I dont really use that app anymore, how's it goin'?" Or something dumb like that. In every instance none of them actually matched with me, I just say that. I usually reserve this for the hottest girls that pop up in my feed, if they have an IG handle. Surprisingly.. they are usually 20-25.
