Here are my observations having Tinder for 8 months:
First of all I think it's a piece of sh*t and barely use it. Why is it that men are so worried about having a DSLR quality photo, six pack abs, and these amazing photos?
Look at the women's profiles and you will see that their pictures are crappy, selfie, not even close to professional. Yet I see these little PUA kids running around getting Photoshopped pro photos of themselves and still not getting matches.
Stop giving these AW's attention! Do you guys realize IG, SC, and Tinder are just ways for them to get loads of attention without the intention of meeting anyone? They are narcissist to the extreme.
I would also like to remind you guys that these are not my own sentiments. I have spoken to like 12 different guys who generally do well with women in person and they all agree Tinder crap. The mass media is brain washing everyone into thinking this is what people do these days to meet, and it's a lie. It's not, people meet through mutual friends, social circles, parties, just like they always did.
Do I think it's a great concept? Well if it actually worked I wouldn't have to leave my house and could order in some pussy, who the hell wouldn't want that? But that is called a hooker my friends. No work, and get sex instantly for a couple of hundred bucks.
My experience with Tinder: I am a decent looking man, 6'2 and muscular because I bust my ass and work out. I am fortunate to be photogenic. 8 months on Tinder in New York City which is a massive city with endless opportunities:
I have met 6 women live and in person. I have had sex with 1 who was hot/22, but mentally ill.
The other women I met in person were also very bizarre (all 19-24) Keep in mind guys, this is 8 months of swiping and I do not pay for this sh*t. I paid just 1 month to test it out and results were pretty much the same however the girl I banged was "Super Liked".
My friends: I know 2 guys who get laid 2-4 times a month with hot girls which in my opinion is pretty good. They both tried Tinder and could barely meet any women on it as well.
The other people I know all financially successful men, or physically superior to the average in some way, suck with Tinder. So doesn't this prove it is a load of horse sh*t? I mean seriously guys.
Here is what works: Network with guys who are successful in some way. It's not always money but just being Alpha. Look for mentors. Hang out with successful people, be positive. Avoid bizarre people who are stuck in their own ways. Talk to women every where you see them and have a pair of BRASS BALLS. Failure leads to success. Go to private parties, join clubs and organizations, practice being outgoing, stop playing video games and Pokemon Go (if you want to play Pokemon Go you might as well locate women and hit on them instead of walking around like a Lemming chasing digital images of a fat yellow rabbit)
You're mostly right. Tinder is a waste of time, and a distraction from doing the things that will get you closer to actually meeting a woman of quality. I've been on there since it launched because I get bored and like to screw around with it sometimes, but I have never met a woman of quality through that app and I suspect that 100% of HB10s using it are strictly seeking attention.
With that said, you're dead wrong about Pokemon GO. It's helping people develop social skills and lose their approach anxiety, and even if that's the ONLY thing it ever accomplishes for anyone, its value is beyond measure. Do some research on the already-staggering mental health benefits being reported in relation to this game and you will quickly see that your comments were entirely without merit.
