Well ladies and gentle fish, the verdict is in. I’ve spent 2 months on this app, not trying to brag but i am an above average looking 21 year old male. Needless to say I attract women. Well, Tinder tends to disagree. With over 150+ women who have swiped on me (which i can only reveal with a membership) i have yet to match with a single one. I will swipe right on everyone seeking a match, only to run out of likes. I will be patient and only swipe on woman I review, yet no matches. I go to bars, bowling ally’s, concerts, and parks and easily attract woman, but i can’t get a single swipe on an internet dating site? It’s clear that Tinder has become Pay to Use. If you have Gold (which my buddy has and is constantly getting matches) then you will thrive. Enjoy paying to meet women. But if you don’t wanna waste your money, then you shouldn’t waste your time either. Go out and do something social, this app is Pay to Use, you will not be successful using this app without a membership. Thank you for erasing Tinder, now you will thrive more than ever.
This app is for woman. Not men. If you're a woman looking for more social media followers: go right ahead. If you're a guy who's feeling a bit lonely right now: take a lap & really think about it. These women have (most likely) never met you, they have no reason to respond to you, they barely check the app at all & if they do...nothing happens. You match, you make a move, you wait, then unmatch after a week of nothing. Its an app of boring women who can't even write simple bios asking for non-boring men who look like they don't belong on Tinder. If I sound salty at all...its because I've installed & deleted Tinder about 5 times within the past two years. Don't become this. Heed this warning & get while the getting is fantastic. While the birds still sing & life is still colorful. But if you choose to continue after reading this...may the odds be in your favor. Also, fair warning, some of them will have their social media handles in their bios. Don't take the bait.
Crappy customer service. I contacted them saying I couldn’t create an account. I get an email a few days later “don’t use 3rd party apps to sign up and only us a phone number woth SMS.” I don’t like using my actual phone number to sign up for things because of privacy concerns. But I tried my actual phone number. It said the account associated with this phone number had been banned. That’s funny cuz I didn’t create an account with my phone number. When I contacted customer support about this, I got no response. None at all. Also I had a tinder account many many years ago before switching numbers and all the people on there only want hookups. So if you’re looking for something real don’t waste you’re time. It’s a hookup app disguised as a dating app.you can be as transparent with someone as you want, but if it’s a guy, they will change their story to match yours, then ditch you two seconds after they sleep with you. Because guys are disgusting and only have one thing on their mind
There’s a few ways tinder tries to scam you into upgrading.
1) They send bots to like you (even though they are thousands of miles away). For me, they typically are around 5k miles away.
2) No matter how many like you, at some point you won’t see any of them during the suggested page, even when you run out of people to swipe.
3) They say upgrade to be able to swipe on multiple 10 top picks, but when you upgrade, it switches who you see and lowers the numbers to 6.
4) They actually have been showing me the exact same people on top 10 (free version) no matter if I have swiped left, right, or ignore. However, never see them when I upgrade.
5) If you upgrade to Tinder+ and later that same day decide to go TinderGold, they will advertise “for just $5 more you will get Gold.” The thing is that even if you switch to gold, you actually get charged for Tinder+ and TinderGold separately. Meaning on the first month you will get charged $9.99 + $14.99, instead of just the $14.99.
I swear I have seen a huge surge in the number of fake profiles on tinder. It’s honestly very unnerving. I’ve noticed different profiles under different names using the SAME photos — it’s like a game of “who is pretending to be who?!” Please fix this it’s honestly not in your best interest to allow fake/imposter/catfish profiles — something must be done to protect the users on this app and it concerns me that tinder doesn’t have any proper vetting or verification process and continually shows me the same profiles I report to them. People spend their hard earned money on this app With the hope of actually meeting someone REAL. I’m starting to realize that it’s all about the money for Tinder and they could care less about the welfare and wellbeing of its users. Tinder customer Support is nonexistent - this app is going to deal with major repercussions if they don’t change the application process.
“You have all these people who are interested in you”
See’s 17 or so blurred out pictures.
“Just pay this much for so long, even better you should suscribe.”
“Oh hey, you keep getting more matches, you should totally pay us to show you your matches.”
Hmm... am I that desperate?
“Oh wow, thanks for paying your subscription!”
Oh look, all my matches were fake. Great. No worries, I’ll get new matches and I get to see them as they appear.
“ *crickets* “
So basically, they trick you into giving them money. As soon as you pay, the stop giving you fake profiles. Out of the 17 or so “matches” I had, one turned out to be a catfish, the rest disappeared because of an “error.”
Thanks Tinder. I don’t know why I keep coming back to you. Oh, it’s because you prey on people like me and I keep falling for it because I want to meet new people.
Too slow of a turnaround. Took a year to get laid by first date on there. After a couple dates we decided to just stay friends, and hung out for a while before she got jealous about me friendly flirting with another girl (and she insisted friendly flirting wasn’t a thing). Then we didn’t talk for 6 months. Then I ran into her and we started handing out again. She told me she had feelings for me. We hooked up. Mind you, this was approximately a year after the first date. She told me she was in love with me. I didn’t reciprocate, and said I needed space. Her response was to call the cops and tell them I was off my meds and going to hurt myself.
TL;DR: Took a year to get laid and she called the cops on me for things I didn’t say when she told me she was in love with me and I didn’t reciprocate. Thanks Tinder.
Tinder gold is an absolute scam. I saw that I had 12 likes, so I was curious to see who they were. I figured the 1 month gold subscription for just $14.99 was a good test drive price. Sure enough, every single one of those likes disappeared the second My payment went though. When I contacted a representative about it, the explanation was that likes will disappear if users delete their profiles or undo the likes...I find it very hard to believe that 12 people deleted their accounts or undid the likes at the same time the exact second my payment goes through. Also, every like I’ve gotten since then disappears the second I open the notification. If you have tinder, keep using it by all means, but STAY AWAY from tinder gold. I’m just glad I didn’t go for anything longer than the 1 month only subscription.
My account was banned and I had done nothing against the guidelines. I also was offered no help or assistance from anyone on the Tinder team. If you request help from them, they’ll send you the same exact email they copy and paste each time. It’s disappointing how awful the services are. Your account can literally be banned because people might think you’re fake. Tinder does not actually view the reason why people’s accounts get reported. They just assume it’s real after more than one complaint. Also, if you have an ex on Tinder, they can easily report you out of sheer animosity and hate. And your account will get banned. So thank you Tinder for being so unfortunate and unhelpful. You’ve done nothing to help my situation at all.
25% scammers, prostitutes, IG/webcam models, or other people wanting your money.
25% people who don’t want to ever meet. They match, but never message or ghost quickly.
25% people who don’t want to ever meet... but string you along to fuel their ego. Will flake if you ever ask them out.
That leaves roughly 25% (a generous number, more like 10-15% most months) to work with. Not a good percentage for guys considering it’s 80% dudes. That’s right, guys, you’re fighting over a tiny population of women actually wanting to date. You only get to be seen by those women of you pay. Tinder has created an environment that is toxic for men and women - women were just smart enough to leave in larger numbers.
