RE: Bumble! tinder but the girls message first
Well, food for thought - if they took away the woman-initiate-conversation requirement, then this becomes another Tinder and thirsty beta dudes bomb all the girls' inboxes. Then the fatties take over, and the app is dead. Am I missing something?

Yeah I'm not sure what's up - I'm thinking this is more for maybe semi-famous people or instagram famous people. Like I mentioned alot of these girls are in the fashion industry - now that I think about it there was some girls in TV media also.

The girls will be so picky that they'll never get matches I'd bet, doesn't hurt to have this supplement your online game.

I agree with this, but there are already some fatties on this app. We'll see what happens, I'll give this a month to test out.

It's the same with Coffee Meets Bagel - you only match once a day, and hardly get matches.

Completely agreed, hence these apps should only be supplemental.

It's just like tinder, limits bio and pictures.

Swipe right swipe left features including a shake your phone if you accidentally swiped left on a girl.

I've had it for a day, did a radius of 7 miles around work and 10 miles around home.

I've gotten no matches so far, I'd say I've swiped over 60+ and had 0 connections.

The talent locally:

-Most are you typical white girl blonde/brunettes, cute asians and mexicans, a few black girls as well.
-College minded or fashion driven (they all have the same likes or come from the same school)
-Average WB number be about a 7.5. LOTS of 8's
-I haven't seen anything under a 7 except for a handful.
-Hardly any SIF's they just can't compete with the talent.
-I've seen only 1 girl that I've seen on other dating apps.

Pics are:

-suited down with pocket square, cute 8 girl behind on the side (I kind of cropped her out)
-in a funny hat with an 8 girl holding my arm
-underwater gesturing
-at a pretty badass NHL outdoor hockey rink
-sunglasses with 2 7.5's at a beach rave
-suite down drinking with sunglasses

This would be a tinder killer if the girls didn't have to message first - all it's doing is feeding their thirsty ego's.

We'll see what happens if I actually get a match.

Yeah girls don't approach men at all hardly outside of the movies in my experience. Even girls who are into you will swolest you or go out of their way to get close to you, little hints like that but you still have to approach. I can't see an app where girls have to approach men getting any kind of real traction.

RE: Bumble! tinder but the girls message first
Tried this one out for a few weeks. Matched with a few dozen, and about 40% initiated the conversation. Sounds pretty good at this point.

But after she initiates the conversation, this is where it falls off... and I don't think it's my game, or lack of. No matter how witty or original my follow up reply is, or how direct it is, the girls just don't respond. Just because they say "Hi" doesn't mean they will reply to your reply at all.

It's the same as Tinder, OKC, POF, with a women-initiate-first twist. I think online dating in the west is truly dead, except for Seeking Arrangement where girls expect money or gifts or resources in return for taking them out for drinks. I'm not sure how I feel about the SA thing, though I am about to try it out myself.

Give examples.

I see Bumble at this point as a script flipping haven. If she doesn't try to frame you with something you can flip.... just open her with how you'd approach her on okc, pof, or whatever site... coz that's what she's asking for with a "hi" -- she doesn't know what to say aside of that. So lead on : - )

Been on this thing for a few months. Quality of the talent is much higher overall than Tinder. I've gotten a lot of matches and a decent number of chicks actually initiate. All girls have given their digits, but I've been too lazy to move forward. Seems promising.

Similar results here. Girls don't seem to be in a big hurry to meet up but the quality is much better and the number of matches is lower, but leads to a better number conversion ratio.

I have had 0 luck and 0 bangs from bumble. Maybe I should use it more, or swipe right for every single woman that I see.

Here are a few...

Her: Hi
Me: Hey there, that good pic with the snowcapped mountains behind you, where was that taken?
Her: *silence*

Her: Hey
Me: You look like trouble..
Her: *unmatch*

Her: Hey
Me: Hey how are you today?
Her: I'm good and you?
Me: Great, I'm at the grocery store now... picking out the best portabella mushrooms for a new recipe I've been meaning to try
Her: *silence*

This makes me want to stop wasting time trying to get conversations going online. Or go straight into "let's get drinks". I used to think that you need to build rapport and make conversation over text before it's time to pitch for a date, but it's hard enough to even get THERE.

And by the way this happens not just on bumble or tinder, but also on the standard online dating sites like OKC.

I find it's really easy to overgame online when you're in your 40s. The couple times where I addressed a Tinder match as "tinderella" it's instant unmatch.

Much higher quality means lower hit ratio. That's just life.

The girls are contacting you it's not really much of an investment on your part.

МНЕ ПОХУЙ Я В ТАНКЕ!

A Russian and an American are talking:
US- When I'm in a good mood I drive a car painted a light color, says the American. When I'm busy or have a lot of troubles, I drive a darker colored car. When I go for vacation overseas, I pick a brightly colored car.
USSR- Things are much easier in Russia, says the Russian. If you are in a good mood, they will give you a ride in yellow car with a blue stripe. If you feel bad, the car will be white and the stripe red. I was abroad only once, and there I was in a tank.

Seems like there's close to no activity on Tinder on my campus, I think I'm a little late to join the Tinder scene. Keep hearing about this app recently, is Tinder's old activity now on Bumble?

Nah but the okcupid study showed you shouldn't have any smirks. Non-smiling and not looking at camera photos played best.
Also girls know that other girls in a photo with you is just about them being in a photo versus them liking you, so I saw someone recommend you crop them out so it doesn't look like you're trying to imply anything.
The group of male friends also creates a different kind of judgement - they judge you by how cool your friends look, so you have to be mindful of this.

^ Best is probably to have a mixed gender group of good looking friends, hopefully the girls are really hot and all the other guy friends aren't more attractive in the photo that you are but still look cool hah, with one or two girls draped onto you that are laughing like they are having the time of their life, with you standing out as the leader.
