I like that title.
So for those who doesn’t know, guy on tinder have a real disadvantage due to their algorithm, and this is why tinder prenium exist.
How does it work? So if you are a pretty decent guy who just created an account, chances are you will get some matches during the first following days. As time goes on, you’ll find out that your number of matches decrease. Why ? because your ratio is negative!
Let me explain. Tinder work with an algorithm based on ratio, So the more likes you get, the more your profile is shown and vice versa. Therefore if you like more profile people than people like you, your ratio become negative and less visible. You might even end up totally invisible.
However, even if you are the hottest guy in the universe, you’ll eventually end up totally invisible on tinder. Why? Because guys tend to like every girls’ profile without even watching and then they select the interesting ones, while girls are way more selective because their ratio is positive and they know they will get matches whatever happens.
In fact, Bumble’s CEO is a former Tinder programmer and she published an article in which she said that for every match a guy has, a girl get 70 matches.
And then, when your profile has become invisible, you can 1) create a new profile with a new algorithm (but you will have to wait for the algorithm to be neutral, or use another phone number. 2) pay for the prenium version (witch doesn’t even show all the matches you have) or pay for a boost that reverse the algorithm in your favour.
But that’s not all. As I said, girls have way more like than men, so even when you match with someone, the chances are that she won’t make the first move, or that she wont even replied. So don’t try to start a conversation with “hey ”, “hello” or anything boring.
So if you want a good advice, follow Based Zeus on youtube and he will give you some hint that are really helpful, but don’t get angry or disappointed if you still end up alone.
In the end tinder is practical during covid while everyone is bored, and casual sex, but be careful.

Guess what? This is your one star for managing to deteriorate this app over the years that I have been using it on and off. I’m not going to waste my time over your app.
Your business model of advertising your upgraded memberships everyday and keeping likes hostages is simply not working. The fact that mostly men get banned with absolutely no supervision and no explanation just because a couple of spoiled self-centered women reported them, is disgusting. Your platform has become an advertising platform for women to put their IG rather than to use the app to actually connect with people; this was supposed to be a dating app. Your “matching” algorithm is not working; there is a huge gap between the unrealistic expectations of average women here which gives them false sense.
Why bother giving the illusion of choice for preferred gender or search radius??? If I set my radius to 40kms, those are the people I’d like to talk to in hopes of meeting eventually. So why am I seeing people who are 4,000+ kms always and everything in between??...
Same thing applies to the gender I’m attracted to! Give more options/ways for people to identify themselves, then give us the choice of who we’re looking for!
How are these things so challenging??? Just let us choose these things! Some people want every possible gender, sexuality and geographical option available... Some, including myself don’t.
I’m on here with the hopes of actually meeting a match after social distancing is over, not just have pen pals in Russia.
Bumble is (slightly) better.
As far as matching goes. It’s good, but I got banned after not being on for a week. I hadn’t messaged anyone and I hadn’t matched with anyone. I haven’t violated a single community guideline. Support won’t even tell me why my account was banned and because there is no appeal process I can’t ever join again. It would make sense to keep me banned if I had offended someone or something but half the time the farthest I got on this app was “hey, how are you?”. It’s great to know you guys take community guidelines seriously, but for someone who was unfairly banned, it’s terrible customer support. I now have to use other apps that don’t have as many people on them and for someone who lives in a small town. It’s not very nice
There are options to control the physical distance and age parameters for the profiles that show up as you’re swiping, however the app undermines this because tinder “doesn’t want your fun to stop”. The real reason is because they want you to keep swiping through more ads so they can make more profit, which I understand completely as it’s the reason why people create apps in the first place. However what this means for me personally is that I’m far less likely to use the app if 9 out of 10 people live 10000 km+ away from me and the age/physical distance parameter controls are useless. I also don’t like when businesses attempt to deceive customers.
This app works only because of the volume, even after paying it keeps your card out of reach so that you pay more, the ones who match to make you take one of the paid subs will be like 10000 miles away , which would be of no use.
I took a cheaper sub in the beginning and then upgraded that sub for which it charged me for the lower sub.
Then instead of charging only the difference when I took the higher sub it charged me the full price which means for the lower sub I was charged twice.
I really hope people give this useless app low reviews so that it get crushed soon by it’s better competitors , and as less as possible people get cheated.
Tinder is permanently banning people without investigation or appeals. If you turn down men’s harassment-like responses, they will report you getting you banned from tinder. There is no appeal process and no customer support. They banned me for life without reason right after I bought tinder gold for 6 months. This is happening to thousands of people and they refuse to do anything. Don’t turn down men’s sexual advances, just unmatch, because tinder will side with harassing men over you & ban you for “violating terms” if you haven’t.
Welp you guessed it. Tinder is back on its banning spree for absolutely no reason. Wont even review my account to see that I have done nothing wrong. Total joke if you ask me. Tinder has never sent me a message regarding inappropriate activity (plus I haven’t done anything inappropriate) so I haven’t even had a chance. I am not underage, I am single, post real photos (even verified myself) and have never said racist or homophobic things. So I do not see what their issue is but they need an appeal or unbanning process.
Got banned for violating some guideline apparently but I absolutely did not, my pictures were fine and unchanged for months, nothing going on in my bio, again unchanged and didn’t really talk to anyone on the app, also never went on a date through the app so not sure what guideline I could have violated. Can’t contact anyone from tinder to find out why this happened and how we can rectify the situation. Garbage app and service.
My account got banned for NO reason and customer service only kept on saying that they can’t help me. At least investigate the issue and provide people feedback as to why they are banned!! This app is supposed to help people date... and you are not allowing it!! This treatments violates your core principles!!! Ridiculous service that induces hardship during global pandemic!! ABSOLUTELY SHAME-FULL!!
