I'm almost 100% convinced that since the tinder plus update, the free version has been completely rigged
I'm using the exact pictures as I was before the update and have over 400 matches from before the update. When I first went on tinder for a day almost always AT LEAST the first 3 swipes right were matches for me. Every time
But these days I'll be lucky to get a few matches a week...
My theory is that tinder made it harder to match somehow and/or doesn't always register your matches, so that you go and buy their the plus version for more swipes.
Either that or my account/app is bugged. I will try redownloading/making a new account and report back
Anyone else notice a significant drop in matches since the update?
Someone prove me wrong
EDIT: I just figured out why, it makes complete sense.
The fact that I was getting likes before as soon as I logged on suggests Tinder queues people that have liked you to the front of the queue correct? Ergo every girl's queue is full of guys that have premium that have already liked her, plus a whole bunch of guys with premium that are running auto-likers. Therefor she may never see my profile to swipe right on.
It's not that Tinder have disadvantaged guys without premium, it's just that guys WITH premium have a huge edge that they're exploiting to beat you to the pussy.
Then the girls don't need premium so they only swipe the limit and never see my profile
Ya that makes sense. Same thing happens to me. When I first got the app I had worse pictures and I did better than I do on it now lol. I used to clean up everyday on it, now I'm lucky to get a few matches from hot girls every few days.
This is such a relief to read. I do not pay for premium. I recently moved to NYC and in the beginning of the year, because of being here, I accumulated over 600 matches. And I am not the type to just hammer the like button. Then after the update, same boat, only a few per week that are quality/ones I want. The rest are ones I accidentally pressed and umatch.
I only got tinder after they started charging for it so I can't comment on whether I'm getting less matches than I should be. This makes me feel better though. I'm doing about 100 right swipes a day and only getting 1-3 matches each day which is a ridiculously small percentage. I'm pretty sure my photos and profile are solid.
From what it sounds like from other guys they probably are limiting your matches. Now that I know this I'm considering paying the $9.99. Ten bucks month is a pretty small price to pay for access to unlimited girls and a better matching percentage.
When I first signed up, I threw a few pics up on there and kept them the same. I had hundreds of matches at first, then as time went on the matches started decreasing in quality and quantity. I deleted my account unlinked it from my facebook and tried it again later to see if I was crazy or not.
Nope, even after I had "refreshed" my account I had a lot less matches and a lot less quality matches and this was a bit before tinder plus.
Women now realize they can get nearly cream of the crop only being average looking on tinder so it's hyper-competitive for men. Look at the youtube parodies where women can literally swipe right forever and get matches. It's embedded in their thought process that they can get a majority of men on there. Plus I'm sure Tinder plus basically makes it so it's a lot harder to get on women's screens if you're on the regular app.
In 2013/early 2014 it was pretty epic. At least for me.
I'm considering paying for it. I'll let you guys know if anything seemingly changes after subscribing.
I can imagine that the odds are in your favor if you're subbed; it makes logical sense.
What is the biggest draw that Tinder can give us for subscribing? Higher odds of matching the hot girls, of course. If you feel like you match hotter girls while subbed vs. not-subbed, you're going remain subbed. (9timesoutof10)
If there is a significant difference, it might actually be worth paying for. The time investment alone to using pof or okc or cold approach or something else to make up for that deficit in potential lays you could be getting could easily be several hours per week.
Even half an hour of work at most people's current jobs would be enough to pay the tinder fee, and if it made my tinder like it was when I first got it, I'd say it could be worth it. I used to match with so many dimes and I got quite a few out on dates pretty easily. There were many many more quality hot girls than on pof and okc and it was easy as fuck, I think I had three dates setup within my first couple hours on it. Now I barely ever match mint broads on it.
How many matches do you guys get on average/day now there's the 100 swipe right limit? I just started using it and after 200 or so swipes got 15 matches I think, no complaints on the quality. If it continues at that rate I think it's more than enough. I don't really need like 60+ matches/day unless I am missing something here?
Woooooooooooooooowwww. I'm super pissed about this. I recently experienced the SAME thing. I signed up for Tinder about a month and a half ago. In about a weeks time I had maybe 40-50 matches. I deleted the app after being fed up with two clingy/stalker chicks. Signed up again a little while later and can't get matches to save my life now.
I honestly don't know if it's worth paying for though.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
