Open every guy with a "hey" so their profile doesn't disappear after 24 hours. Collect as many orbiters as possible. May or may not pick the best one. Move a couple guys to social media, a few more to texting, now she's got a full pipeline of attention.

It's not even conspiracy anymore ... I decided to try the online BS for fun for like 3-4 days. Bumble literally zero matches, Tinder 15

the 1 mile setting thing for tinder works, bumble will put girls who are 40 miles out in your queue, even if you set it to 5 miles

AW all time high, I expected it, but bumble is even worse than tinder, which is funnier

RE: Bumble! tinder but the girls message first
In the Boston area Bumble women are alphas, at least in my 36+ age bracket. What I mean by alpha is they are HB8+ 1%ers, like spa owners, equestrians, high priced yoga instructors, etc... They're in shape, mostly blonde (bleached or otherwise), fashion-plates, world-travelers, disconnected from everyday concerns. You might as well be swiping against a Victora's Secret catalog as far as the disconnect between the desire to date them and the likelihood of it happening.

Bumble is for yuppies and CEOs and POF and OKCupid is for the plebes. The best overall mix of women is still to be had on Match. There are a lot of women on Match who will NOT use anything else, whereas the free sites (POF/OKCupid/Tinder/Bumble) tends to have a lot of overlap. So if you don't pay up for Match you're not really getting exposed to the entire online dating demographic.

RE: Bumble! tinder but the girls message first
Since moving to Philly in July,

Banged like 10+ off of bumble

3 off of POF (2 milfs and one 22 yo hottie new to online dating)

Don't think I have banged anyone off of OKC

Tinder, 2 or so bangs, I don't get any love on tinder

trying coffee meets bagel for the first time, have a few leads

Still have not signed up for match, might consider it soon.

but BUMBLE is what gets my dick wet, my 3 current fuck buddies are off of bumble

I honestly can't keep up with all the numbers and matches I get off of bumble.

Bumble hasn't yielded any bangs for me. Tinder, OKC, POF all have. I've got a few matches with Bumble but I can't ever close.

RE: Bumble! tinder but the girls message first
Although not as many as OKC or Tinder, I've banged some Bumble chicks in my time. Talent is solid but I haven't had the level of expected or desired success. A lot of matches- but girls don't always initiate (the only caveat unfortunately). The extended match functionality has secured me some girls open. Girls tend to fade (even after grabbing number). Like all 'dating' apps- you have to build comfort and act fast.

RE: Bumble! tinder but the girls message first
Just downloaded Bumble today, maybe about 6 hours ago. So far 5 matches, one of which messaged me "Hi" about 30 minutes ago and now we are chatting.

I use tinder and had tinder plus up until a week ago. The best day I ever had in terms of matches on tinder (I'm in Houston) would be 2 or possibly 3 matches, not including bots/girls that never respond/uggos/fatties. Actually I'd be happy to get 1 decent match a day on tinder.

I've been using tinder for nearly a year now and have been on dates with 3 girls, had sex with two on the first meet, and talked without it going anywhere with several.

I'll report back my bumble results after I get some (results, that is lol).

Got a Bumble meet lined up for tomorrow:

It's a really noob thing to worry about still, but does her message saying "I don't come to some random guys house" going to cockblock me at all?

I've successfully pulled more than one online chick back home on the first night, and banged most of those, so it shouldn't worry me, but I haven't had too many ASD's throw me off (I wish I'd had), and not as early as the online phase.

Her message about us being neighbours refers to that fact that the app said that we were less than 900 metres away.

It shouldn't. In fact, her mentioning it means she's considering it. Get the number so you can isolate her from the app.

During the date you can build comfort, location change, and finesse her back to your place for the close.

Read this!

That online text doesn't even look like english to me. I certainly hope women over 35 don't require being wooed that way because I don't think I can pull it off.

Nope, not in the slightest, she's just trying to not look like a slut.

Good texting, she probably likes you, but I'd get the number way quicker.

Many matches, but my very direct strategy has been faltering lately. Do you guys tend to go indirect and tailor the opener?

RE: Bumble! tinder but the girls message first
Anyone else notice the shenanigans Bumble plays with the girls they show you? I'll get a string of hot chicks, almost none of them below an 8 (usually the first slate of girls shown when I first open the app), then it'll get to a point where the little yellow hourglass/spinner thing will appear as if it's searching for more matches, and then like a lightswitch it'll serve up long series of average-to-well-below-average girls. This pattern repeats itself like clockwork...I can call it every time: the moment I get the yellow spinner, the quality nosedives. They're definitely playing games with the matches. The hot girls shown I don't think are completely fake profiles: they're located in my city, and I can often find their social media profiles. My guess is that Bumble's using real profiles of hot girls in my city who have either (i) at one time had Bumble profiles but no longer do; or (ii) don't have my location/age-range in their filters. Aka, I think I'm being shown their profile, but they're never seeing mine. I don't think I've ever matched with one of the initial-slate hot girls.

RE: Bumble! tinder but the girls message first
From what I've read, it's a self-reinforcing popularity-contest.

In other words, women who get right-swiped the most get shown first. Since Bumble's like Tinder in being a superficial meat-market, that means the hottest chicks. The upside if you have high standards is you can just swipe the hottest and when it hits your SMV limit, just put the app away for a while without worrying you're missing anything. The downside is the self-reinforcing nature.

I don't know how the algorithm factors in new members. If it's just a popularity contest then it will be heavily skewed in favor of incumbents who have already been there for a long time and racked up a lot of right-swipes. But one can infer that if you are new and/or not SMV 8+ you are going to be put onto the back of the bus.

I mean, if you're not hot enough, you're unlikely to be right-swiped no matter how often you get shown, but a low chance is better than a no-chance (when being put at the back).

RE: Bumble! tinder but the girls message first
I use this app the most because tinder stopped working. I think something new needs to pop up because I don't meet anybody on these dating apps anymore. I spend more time going to professional networking events and cold approach till I run out of breath or the events are over. This app continuously delivers the same broads over and over any time I bring my gps back to DC. It's beginning to show me plenty of prior left swipes from NYC if that tells you anything. Most of these profiles say hey or hey there or hi. No substance. As soon as I press for a meet or ask a question, ghost. Go outside.

RE: Bumble! tinder but the girls message first
I'm hearing the new "Hinge" is the thing to control attention whoring by chicks, supposedly they can only interact with one match at a time. They have to drop the match to move to the next. This does work in favor of those looking for relationship material I would think.

Anyone have thoughts on the revamped Hinge app?

Yup, definitely some sort of algorithm trickery going on here. I see the same thing. Most have professional third party pictures which I believe is a sign that the profiles are fake.

I find this genuinely hilarious. We shouldn't be bitter or mad about this though. I'll play devil's advocate for a brief moment here:

(1) - It's generally not the woman's "job" to initiate. It goes against social (and possibly ingrained biological) roles. I know this app is suppose to flip the script on that, but nature always finds a way I suppose. So her sending a "." is kind of her way of saying "okay bud, show me what you got. let's see if you can impress me"
And sure, you might think to yourself "fuck that, I'm not playing this stupid game. Grow up." But the thing is this: there's a big line up of guys waiting to entertain her, to have their "chance" to prove to her how entertaining and worthwhile he is.

(2) - This ties in a little bit to what I was saying earlier but: she acts this way because she can. We all know how much the sexual market is skewed in their favour these days, especially with online dating.

Absolutely hilarious though, there really is nothing less investing then sending "."

Grant me serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference

RE: Bumble! tinder but the girls message first
Bumble should enforce a minimum character limit on initial messages. But then women will just resort to:

....................................................................

I don't know how apps can win that arms race without, let's say, perma-banning or repping women who game the system. But that goes against the whole idea of Bumble being female-centric.
