GibsMeDat said:To understand the thirst, one must realize that there are upwards of 4 times as many men than women on tinder
That's correct, tinder is 80% guys, 20% women. In the UK it's as bad as 90-10.
In the UK, it was estimated by Ogury that 85% of the online dating market was male, as of April 2019. This imbalance was even more pronounced among Tinder users, for which the ratio was 9:1 in favour of male users.

Several years ago on a trip to Miami, I was barely getting any Tinder matches. I think it was six in the first week. I switched to have it show me guys, and within an hour I had well over a hundred likes from thirsty homosexuals.WanderingFlame said:I once changed settings so my gender was female and I was searching for males.
WanderingFlame said:Hilarious. I believe the photo. Absolutely the best way to understand what the problem is.
I once changed settings so my gender was female and I was searching for males. Didn't update any photos. Within literally 30 seconds, 6 dudes had already appeared in my "liked you". I right swiped all, and a couple of them started messaging me copy pastes.
Bot or not, the point is, this is what all girls are seeing. How is she meant to actually pick somebody to meet? It is proven that, psychologically, more choices = less chance to actually make a decision. Add to that the fact that women often can't make decisions anyway. Plus you look like a loser sat on there competing with all the other losers.

If you're attractive and interesting, meeting and dating women IRL is really easy if you actually make an attempt to go and talk to people. Really. Surprisingly easy.
I once did a trip abroad and used Tinder throughout. Got lots of dates easily. In addition to this I asked for 2 numbers from girls in person (1 cold approach, 1 waitress).
Guess who was most keen, and who constantly messaged me after I returned home?
Yep, both of the IRL ones.
Even high value dudes using dating sites are perceived as low value and easily replaceable. I think its an automatic, subconscious thing.

The person in that Tinder profile is the guy who made the infamous black pill video - well known around incel circles.
One of the things that goes in incel circles is to do social experiments on dating apps to test out their theories on dating. Some of them took a picture of Eggy and feminized it and made a Tinder profile out of it to show that even the lowest value women will get plenty of attention.
