can we get a new Tinder thread going?
rate/critique/post wins/do whatever as long as it's Tinder related.
and here's mine, I'm trying to convey that I'm not a fuccboi without coming off as a beta which is apparently pretty tricky. any pointers?
Frenchfag here, in New York for the holidays, is that an okay start?
I have a friend who has gotten multiple matches just from his cat as his first photo. I used to think the cat thing was beta too but the only type of girl you're not going to attract are ones that despise cats.
Never been on tinder before, but I've been single for two years now and my ex told me she uses it.
Is it worth it? Or will it be like OKCupid, messaging dozens and dozens of girls and never getting a single response?
85 percent of my 400 matches are Asian women. Is yellow fever when you obsess over false personalities you think all Asian women have? Because I'm only swiping them due to physical attraction
Should I reset my profile? I feel like doing it, I wanna try with a new photo and it'd feel kinda strange to message girls you've been matched with a month ago. That'd me like my 4th time though lol
I'm thinking about doing this too, I have like 75 matches that are almost all several weeks old because I was talking to one girl and foolishly decided not to message anyone else.
If you reset your profile does it take you back through all of the people you've already swiped on before?
Try to be funny, or reference their profile. If you're going to compliment something, don't make it their looks specifically. Remember the ocean of dicks chasing them like neanderthals.
You have to move quickly because women lose interest very quickly, and conversation dries up fast as well. start your shitty smalltalk if you like, but you have to quickly make it flirtatious, or arrange to see them, or if you have a way with words and wit, like so few do, charm her pants off literally, get some sexting going after a while. Suggested only for people with good intuition, doesn't work on everyone.
Just come across as confident but not a dick. Don't be a generic niceguy either.
It has worked in the past, but only when I said I had a girlfriend and wasn't interested in cheating on her, and the chick took that as a challenge to get me to cheat.
Also, everything that exists for hooking up is "for cheating", since cheating is just an aspect of hooking up. Places you can pick up chicks aren't "for cheating", but you can cheat with girls at them. Same with tinder. It's not a hard concept to grasp.
Is this going to get me an asian normie gf?
Ex Tinder/Hinge/etc user here who had pretty good success back when I was active -- I've been dating a girl I met on Hinge for the past seven months.
Willing to offer advice on profiles/starting conversations/first dates if anyone wants it. Otherwise I'll just sit back and lurk.
Starting off by straight up telling the girl you're not witty or charming and then following up with "I'm not a tool" just screams "I'm a tool." Like it or not, being funny, or at least putting an effort forth towards it, is a quick and easy way to a girl's heart.
I've found apps like Tinder to have a much higher success rate and pool of women than OKcupid. The fact that neither of you know that you like each other until you both say it filters through all the trash messages girls would normally get on sites where everyone can bombard them. Not that it guarantees anything of course and most girls still get shitloads of matches and messages on Tinder, but at the very least you know she has at least some level of interest in you when you first message her.
Not terrible. You're decent looking enough - should have some success. Ditch the collage of you and the girl. Looks too cutesy, like you guys might be together. I'm on the fence about the pic of you and the blonde too, for the same reason. I'd probably replace them both with group shots of you and friends having fun, or maybe you doing some sort of adventurous looking activity. Also, make the black and white pic your default. Looks mysterious.
Your bio feels too long to me. I'd ditch the middle section. Not sure if it's supposed to be funny or what and it comes off as odd but in a bad way. The last section is funny enough and your profile will look better if it goes from your opening mantra line into that last paragraph. Short and sweet. Consider swapping the pic of you in the red and white shirt into the 2nd spot, switching with the shirtless selfie. Even though you're joking, you're right in that it can rub people the wrong way. Start with good, normal pictures of yourself to make a better first impression. Add another group pic if you have one.
I think I've refined my bio. The rest are my music tastes, the youtubr channels I watch, and "I'm learning korean" IN korean.
Me being a douchebag...lol ironically it's been working
Pics are okay. Remove the bottom left, the smirk makes you look like a douche and the lighting is especially bad. The others are acceptable to good. Not sure I'd use the "r word" right up front. Might scare girls off. I subscribe to the idea that it's always better to be safe rather than sorry and start things off casual. If you guys hit it off and keep seeing each other, it will become a relationship naturally on its own. No point in risking coming off clingy right off the bat. The Pokemon mention is fine, but drop the Let's Play thing. They have an unattractive stigma associated with them that is not going to attract many girls, "nerdy" or otherwise. Most girls won't even know what a Let's Play is, anyway.
No problem. Depending on who you potentially match and end up going on dates with, if they seem like the type that would be into the Let's play stuff and like, it's always something you could bring up as a hobby when getting to know them in person if you think they might enjoy them too. It's good to save some stuff for the face to face conversations.
I mix it up/2
Yeah I'm not looking for wifey here and if you're looking for anything more than a fuckNghost you're in the wrong place I think. Maybe try Christian Mingle?
You should probably have some sort of gym or work out related pic in there if you don't have one already. Your bio gives off that vibe and the sluts you're going for eat that up.
>make a tinder
>talk to some guys
>ask to take me on dates
>wow hes short and awkward
>comes to my house and we get high after
>think the date went awful
>hang out everyday for not even a week and we start dating
>realize hes my fuckin soulmate
>fall in love
>are still together to this day
>buys me food all the time
Right on, hence the obligatory bike pic. Idk though, seems like gym selfies are so try-hard. Idk though. Maybe you're right. I guess the idea here is to flex without flexing too hard and being classified as a tool by definition..Tactful pic choice can also accentuate physique without straight up having a gym selfie up? Thoughts?
Yeah something like that. Not straight up shirtless mirror selfie, but something that suggests the same idea. Cut off sleeves pic or something? Do you have enough muscle to pull that off?
will post my pics first and then my bio. would you right swipe or left? DESU I left swipe 97% of the guys on this garbage app.
Best of luck stranger.
Are you sure about swapping out the black and white one? Not sure it's as attractive really...
So, when it comes to tinder, I think there are three things that make or break your first success (that is: getting matches. second, third and foruth comes turning those matches into chats, those into dates and those into fucks. I think I have 1 & 2 pretty dialed, but I am struggling with 3 & 4, so would apreciate help there, but anyways…):
>1 be hot. If you are gods gift to womankind, you dont really need to worry about your tinder profile. You probably wont need one to start with, and wont be hanging round on a manganese face painting BBS
>2 be as good looking, approachable and interesting in your pics as possible. As long as you are not a total, ugly looser in your basement, you can make yourself look at least OK, often quite a bit more. Essentially, this is what these threads are all about.
And the 2 approach is perfectly fine, and I do the same, but I want to throw my approaches 3 and 3.5 into the ring, because I think I might be up to something:
>3 be mysterious. And no, definitely NOT like the pic! But have some other, single picture of you, where you can't really see much of your face. Sport pictures, with a sport that is big within your area could work. I have a skiing pic, where I am chest deep in amazing powder. Snow moving and all that, essentially it's one notch under magazine quality. If I where living at the beach, a surfing pic could probably work too, but I am in the mountains. If you are in flyoverland, get a rodeo pic of you, or whatever you folks do. Think of a unique, funny, interesting and non-douchy text for your profile and wait.
Seriously, unlike all my other trials at tinder profiles that follow various guides (sport pic, social pic, suit pic, and so on…), this one always has the highest success rates.
And its not just
>oh well, nice pic, imma gonna match and that's it matches
I get the same number of those with the others too. I get just as many chats out of this, as with other profiles, and my turnover rate into dates is also the same. I seemingly can talk good enough, to have girls give me their phone number, and agree to meet me, without ever seeing my face!
And here is 3.5, which is yet untried, but I'd love to get some feedback from you folks:
As said above, I tried various profile types, and one thing I noticed, is that almost all profiles start out with quite a few matches (to get you hooked?!) and then, depending on your quality, you either stay at a certain level, or there is nothing. I managed to have two like 95% identical profiles, where one was quite successfull, and the other one was a total dud. So I guess it all depends how the first 30 girls or so judge you. If you are lucky, they like you and tinder puts you on top of the stack, and shows you to many. If not, well, you go down to the bottom, and essentially no one will see you.
fuck, I even suspect them running a check if girls give you their numbers.
So I wanna try to exploit this.
Make a Chad profile, put my GPS to somewhere with loads of easy girls, grab their numbers, unmatch them, and after a few dozen numbers, change my pics and my location to the real me. And that's where you come in:
So my idea is to find some random model dude on flickr and borrow his photos. What would I need? So far, I think I need:
>topless + abs, but in a situation that calls for (no bathroom mirror, but beach!)
>Wealth (suit, or fancy car/home. But car could easily look douchy)
>Animals (I guess riding into the sunset, on a horse, topless on a beach would be a jackpot? Other than that: Horse, Dog or Cat?)
Profile: Problem is, I am kinda old, so I cant do a Yolo thing. I guess it is important to also add in the "fact" that I am wealthy, and some reason why I dont share common friends with her. What about:
>New Florida transplant taking a break from running the family business to get his dream PhD in veterinary medicine. I know this is tinder, but I wouldn't mind if you are something special!
Not too sure about the 2nd part, but I think it is nice. Still leaves her with the option for a quick night of fun with Mr. Perfect, but on the other hand, makes her feel less slutty for swiping yes, after all, I have the best intentions.
Should I add a paragraph about hobbies? If so, what should I like?
And last but not least:
Where can I get the easiest girls? Regarding my topless beach photo, It would feel most natural at another beach setting?
It's definitely a cooler picture and a better attention grabber. They'll likely at least look at your other pics after seeing that one first. Always have your most interesting one up front.
Here's mine guise. How's it look?
I honestly get a decent amount of matches but I'm always tweeking my bio to see what works and what doesn't.
>openly admitting you post on a nepalese sandpainting imageboard
you have a qt smile tho and your ethnicity should be fine considering where you are; remove your 1st, 4th, and 6th/make the third your main for now
also GENERAL RULE FOR EVERYONE; if something in your bio can be portrayed or explained through pictures, leave it out your bio and show it in your pictures
so in your case, get some pics of yr thick solid tight body and you towering over your petite friends
rest of your bio is unimportant so just erase it all and come up with a simple one liner to describe yrself
this is an attractive guy with really bad image placement
your first pic is ooOOo mysterious which can be ok if you have enough great features peeking through, i'm not sure you do... but let's say a girl takes the bait and is like "lemme see what this guy is about"
the next thing she sees is you looking goofy as fuck with gilbert gottfried
now guess what she just swiped left before she even got the above average white guy of her dreams in your 5th pic
rearrange it and you're golden
What this person said. I'd say keep the first one as is, use the bottom middle second and leave them in that order. Mystery to grab attention -> good looks confirmation ->social picture, not a hermit.
I've never really considered the pic placment. But I will admit to the fact, bitches LOVE the duck picture. But I will arrange them so its shown 3rd or 4th. I also just removed the one of me and the girl. As another Anon had said.
Thanks btw. :)
Take off the 4chan reference. Majority of girls won't get it and the few that do will instantly swipe left. Lose/lose situation. Fix the misspelling of "I'm". Change your main photo to either the one of you with the marshmallows or the bottom left. The one you have now is too dark and almost makes your heard look super enlarged if you glance at it quickly enough, which is how most people use Tinder.
Duck picture first. Remove the pic of you and the girl. Add in another group pic and separate the selfies so they're not next to each other. You bio looks good.
this is one of those "common sense" things about tinder i think people get completely wrong
the thought is that if you have a picture with you and a girl, other women will think that's your gf and swipe left
i think that the chances of that happening are slim and that it runs counter to one of the most important things to get across on tinder for a guy, which is allowing people to see that you aren't a misogynistic shitbird that will put her in danger
not saying to put up one of those completely transparent shots of a dude in a suit surrounded by attractive women, but just one picture of you and a female friend who's genuinely enjoying your company is enough to say to a girl "hey women actually like this guy, i should like him too"
A picture of one guy with one girl assumes relationship. A picture of a guy with a group of friends, a few of which are girls, assumes friendly non-misogynist. There's an important difference. I know back when I was Tindering, I always swept left on girls with pictures like these. Always opt for the group shot over the two person guy/girl one. It's a safer choice that still shows you're not a shut in basement dweller.
well I redid it. I'm just trying to keep it different from everyone else's. better than the first?
>Straight up has this as her other image in okcupid
>no reverse images on any of her pictures
I want to believe
Actually talk to them, be funny, be decently attractive, and be forward without being desperate. Realize you have 200 other girls on tinder you can ask if whoever the fuck bails on you. Try to get the number when you both feel comfortable, but always be casual about asking for it. Smooth. Lay it on them in the flow of the conversation. Once you're texting, pace it however she does, all girls are different. Some hookup in a day, some date in a few days, some date in a week or 2. You'll find out.
I speed dated and hooked up with girls about 1-2 times a week this whole semester until I actually met someone who I thought was special. Dated her since the first week of November still going strong, didn't really mean for it to happen but I have no complaints!
Good luck friend
Help me out guys, which one of these two is a better profile photo?
are smiling profile photos a no? cause I'm getting poor feedback today, maybe it's due to New Year's Eve though
Made a bit of improvements. I got a lighter pic. How about now?
I have no idea what to put in the bio, I like to ski every weekend and I lift 5 to 6 days a week. I have a bunch of other interests but that's what my time consuming interests are
I learned from others that you can show hobbies and stuff instead of writing it. maybe pics of skiing and lifting?
I think a funny line would work for the bio. Just because you have the space to write, doesn't mean you should
>mfw got my first match
>mfw no idea what to do now
My bio is in Dutch so there's not really any use posting it here.
would appreciate any comments on this. Just added second part of bio. Yay or nay?
Lads, I'm going to be off on a weeklong cruise come Saturday and I need to get a good idea of what sort of things I should put on my Tinder profile.
Because let's face it, if I match with a girl on the ship they're probably just interested in a one night stand or a good drinking buddy. Should I keep the profile info I have for the mainland, add one of those "Cruising to St. Maarten" one-liners, or just add something downright raunchy?
I matched with a girl and we talked for a bit. She ice skates, but I don't. Would it be a bad idea to go ice skating with her? I'll probably make a fool of myself, but it's something she enjoys.
I keep getting matched with girls that look mighty fine.
But they seem way out of my league. I don't get it.
It's like I'd feel bad even writing to them.
I, on the contrary, seem to never match with girls I'd really like to match with and mostly get the "well, would still date/fuck I guess" ones or girls who managed to hide their obesity etc. in their profile photo. It drives me nuts
WHY DO THE CUTIES SWIPE ME LEFT
Beer :D Decadence :D Self ironic selfies :D
If you one day learn to appreciate killing boring men, you know where to find me [A quote from Finnish rap artist]
Netflix and chill is nice if it really is chill and movie is good. Shit movies suck
I quit tinder a pretty long time ago after getting tired of getting swiped left by more than 99% of all girls and not getting anywhere with the handful of girls i matched with in about a year.
Now i'm considering starting again but i have absolutely no idea what to have as a bio, i didn't have one last time because i couldn't think of one then either.
Is that you above?
Also plz rate:
Swipe Left or Right?
New to tinder - no idea what to do with the bio. Just got out of a serious relationship so I figure it's best to just move on. Not really looking for hook ups or anything. any advice?
I get one match on a good day, any tips? Or should I just uninstall?
Holy shit, you're such a fucking squid. Did you see Cool As Ice when you were shopping for bikes? Learn to ride a non-nigger bike, and buy some gear, you fucking loser. If I ever see you in the canyons above Los Angeles, I'm gonna knock you off that 2-wheeled faggot-tractor. I'll be the guy who actually knows how to ride.
PS, you're a faggot.
You're what, like 23 years old? You know fuck-all about Elliot Smith. Go listen to your 30 Seconds To Mars, and leave the real music to the adults.
Honestly, if I read that profile, and you were near me, I would meet you....and spit in your fucking dumb mouth.
Is this too serious for a profile pic, finally got the balls to install the app, have the bio written and finished. Only problem is that i have almost 0 images of me in a crowd where im not dressed up, the other pics i've chosen are either witty or in a costume :/
This is my piece of shit. I just made it 4 days ago and I already have 27 matches, but I don't feel like I even made a good profile.
I'm already depressed, going on tender makes it worse. I never get any matches. I just feel like a loser. When I do get matches, I don't know how to properly communicate with the girls I match up with. I'm a social nightmare.
I reckon (and have also read here) that fake populare pics depicting you in a socially popular situation can get you easy pussy in no time. Any tips how to stage these fake popular socially important person pictures?
I will provice OC of my exgfs tits if you can provide me with some decent information
Yeah, I would definitely make your second picture your main.
Honestly your profile is pretty well put together. Your bio is witty and your second picture is really good. I would add more pictures if you have any good ones, especially if they're of you with a friend or two. Your first and third pictures aren't very clear, which looks a bit messy. I would re-order your pictures 2, 1, 4,3. If you can manage to find a good picture of you with a friend or two stick it in after the first one. If you can find a particularly silly picture of you (if you have a silly personality sometimes) I would stick it in last.
Also, getting one match on a good day isn't terrible. I'd say I get about two matches a day, but many of them are girls I swiped right on in the moment that I probably won't talk to anyways unless I'm feeling particularly bored. Just keep in mind that everyone has different tastes. You're clearly an Asian guy and a lot of girls are predisposed to not like Asian guys as often, but there's also girls who are more keen on Asian guys. I'm in a similar boat because I have a very young face and I'm weird as hell so most girls swipe left on me, but occasionally I'll get a match that tells me I'm super cute and I'll just go from there.
Pictures where you're the center of attention among your friends are, generally attractive, but faking them is dumb and it won't help you get "easy pussy" much more than having a really good bio. Just go live your life and a few great pictures will turn up.
Also nobody wants pictures of your ex girlfriends breasts. Girls post pictures of themselves on this website all day every day.
Selfies in general are usually bad for males because it implies the need for acceptance from others. Especially the picture is of you alone and it's not silly. That's not to say all selfies are bad, you just have to know when they're in good taste.
Also, showoff pictures can go two ways- Most girls won't like it because they think it's douche-ey. Some girls will think it's attractive. Many will also assume that you're only looking for hook-ups.
Even if you are only looking for hook-ups, it still turns off many of the girls who are also looking for hookups, so there's not much point. That isn't to say you can't have shirtless pictures though. If there's a good picture of you in a situation where it would make sense or it would be humorous to have your shirt off, go ahead and use it.
Should the 1st or second photo be my main?
Hows it look regardless? Should I add my height (6 feet)?
3rd photo is the only good one.
The first looks like a graveyard, the rest are shitty lighting or weird locations.
Youre a good looking guy tho. I dont think girls find 420 a bonus even if you are.
Only use really good photos, because it just takes one bad one to get a left swipe.
If you only have two or three, thats fine.
Say you like motorbikes or something even if you dont
You wouldn't realize it but your profile is pretty short, punchy and I would say realistic. It says enough about you for someone curious to want to know more. It's actually really good.
You guys are all breaking Cardinal Rules of Profile Pics. breaking these rules will get you swiped left in under a second because no one is going to waste their time going to your profile to read about you or see your other pics.
1. Do not obscure your face
-We want to see what you look like its fucking tinder it's all based on physical attractiveness.
2. Do not have a group picture
-Cant fucking tell you apart at a first glance. I have seen people with nothing BUT group photos. just like 5 group photos all with the same people, how am I supposed to tell which one you are?
3. Do not have a picture of you and a member of the opposite sex alone together
-I get it you're good with the opposite sex so I should like you. I just think they're your girlfriend or if they're extremely pretty, that your standards are too high and I wont match with you anyway.
Have these pics if you want, just not as your main picture. You first picture needs to be a good face shot of yourself so you can be quickly and accurately judged.
I like the bio, taking the chill approach I see. Post your profile in edit mode, you mong
Order as 2, 1 , 3. Add at least one more picture of you with friends. "I can X better than you" always comes off as super douchey, unless that's what you're going for.
Second line is pretty aggressive and a turn-off. Your second-to-last picture is utterly pointless, and none of the photos you currently have are particularly flattering, as they all have shitty lighting. I'd slap a filter on bottom right corner pic and make that your main, and axe the sunset and security mirror pictures.
Even your eyebrows are trying too hard. Remove all phone selfies, please.
I'd say the school picture is redundant and not needed. You don't need to put your age either, as that's already displayed next to your name. It looks fine, though a little bare.
NEED TINDER ADVICE.
I was unmatched by a totally cool dude.
He messaged me, and I guess I did not respond in the right time frame, so he unmatched me.
He had his account linked to his IG account, and I am following him there. Would it be weird to message him on IG or no?
His IG is primarily about the cactuses he grows. Should I just pretend I want to buy a cactus or what. I am lost, pls help.
I don't really use tinder much anymore and I've had hook ups from it, but I want to try dating a Japanese or Korean girl
How is my profile anyway?
Thinking about changing my bio too, something to describe me a little better like in the lines of aspiring world traveller, fitness enthusiast, beer drinker, dog lover and then maybe list I am learning a langauge, studying occupational health and trying to learn code but without sounding like I'm showing off
Your profile is really good as it is, I'm sure that smashing an Asian girl is just a matter of time. Only thing is maybe remove second pic, you already have a dog pic and you're wearing flip flops in that one, which is a minus
Ah okay, I usually wear glasses so I thought I would include one with me on it
Oh and I've had asians before, just not japanese.. oddly enough the last 2 that approached me (chinese) were okay, just not exactly gf material. Something about dat small petite figure and perky tits drives me crazy
kek at your bio btw, I almost want to steal that. You're pretty good looking, it's weird to think you only get 1 match a day? Where are you from?
It's better to be picky though - fuck this swipe right all mentality that desperate people have
For me, it's usually someone who looks slightly above average and some sort of educational background, occasionally will ignore that for a truly hot 9/10+, the rest get left swiped.
But it could also just be the area, would be interesting to see how you'd go with tinder or other equivalent apps in asian countries
Anyway thanks for the feedback, I hope you find what you're looking for
I've been quite succesful so far (35 matches in 2 days) but the thing that concerns me is that the girls are not my type, and I never seem to match with those I'd really like to. I like older girls and those with dark eyes; however I seem to attract almost exclusively blue-eyed girls that are either teens or my age at most. Why ;_;
I used to get way more matches, I dunno what happened.
Tinderror has gone down in popularity anyway
I was up until last summer. Moved to London for work.
My social life has died a death.
The worst part is I think other brown people have ruined my chances with white girls here by being sleazy creeps.
Back home in Glasgow I was pretty much a coloured in whiteboy ha.
>acquire amazing new pic to use for profile
>delete account to start afresh and run train on all the students coming back
>app is all sorts of fucked up and won't even let me edit my profile
>delete and redownload
>same thing over and over again, even on different phone
why did we decide to put up with this app
Yeah, picky is good, but I say that now that I've got two reliable fwb. I'd rather get one good looking match per day than ten that I wouldn't fuck in the first place.
Go ahead and message him, but he'll either ignore you or treat you like a desperate prospect for a hookup.
I'd fuck you, m8
I know my prof is wordy, but that's who I am. I don't have game so it's a good way to filter out women who won't tolerate my bs juxtaposed to my facial aesthetics.
Any like minded bros here with verbos bios?
Oh to be young and naive again
Anyway r8 m8s
Dunno about the bio, just smashed it out, and I've just added the main bird pic because I used to get comments on the final one as my first pic
no ill will yo—just the lighting & angles are pretty similar. I mean c'mon. just look.
I get 2-3 matches a day in UK.
so i've talked about sex with this chick and she said she was on her period saturday but now she wants to meetup today but she wants me to bring her some skittles and some hot chips...
what are the chances of me getting sex from this encounter of me bringing her skittles and hot chips..
Dont use the School pic, the rest is looking good.
Anything to better mine ? "If we date and you dont look like on your pics, you are paying the drinks till you do so"
