Lewisham, I was frustrated with it for a while, then I changed my pictures to ones that actually worked and so far I met two pretty hot girls, one of which I saw twice, but I screwed up both times (not being physical enough). If I hadn't done that I might have ended up in a relationship with one of them. That was all within the first two weeks of using Tinder with decent pics.
My match rate has slowed down since then, even using the same pictures/text. At first I was getting 8-12 matches per day, and I had just deleted and recreated my account, was active a lot and was posting moments. Then I went two weeks without getting on it. Now with the same profile I am getting 2-4 matches a day. Soon I am going to try deleting my account and start posting moments again. Also I have Tinder Plus.
I have definitely noticed that I get more and better matches when I am picky about who I swipe right on.

Isn't it just a game? Like, how many legit hot girls actually use this to meet guys they take seriously?
Like, posting moment? I've never done it, seems like something a 12 year old girl would do... what do guys post? Their selfie? Picture of a sunset? You're a guy... who gives a crap?
I ended up deleting it ages ago. I mean, the way girls talk to me on it, It wold never happen in real life, it's ridiculous.
I went on a date with only 1 girl ever and she was nuts. Never really pushed for dates before or after that, the app was just for entertainment but even thaat wore off for me.
Not knocking anyone here but, I've literally NEVER heard of a guy who gets SERIOUS numbers of matches let alone ACTUAL HOT girls. A consistent ratio of lays from it? No way.
When guys talk about tinder girls and then show me the pics, they are terrible, 4's at best. But the guys are racing about "I got a match"... which seems to be some sort of triumph, despite it meaning you've not met, spoke to, let alone slept with the girl.
Why do people take it so seriously? Its an app for entertainment. Like Angry freaking Birds.
I agree, I asked myself the same thing when I matched with a bunch of women especially ones that just went cold. I asked myself, like, I really wonder how many of these woman would really meet up and be serious to have some sort of real relationship. Not dissing the app there are people on there who are willing to get to know you, but I do think most people use it as a boredom type thing.
I was getting about 3 matches a day for the past year. A week ago I decided to try the paid version and I didnt notice any increase. About a week ago I reset my account and within 8 hours i had 40 matches of all 7+ girls whom I wasn't matched with previously. It would be good to know what I should/shouldn't do to keep this rate up as I feel like this will drop off again when the algorithm kicks in
Nearing the end of my month with this. Match rate went up for maybe 2 days and then went back to terrible
Possible due to the fact I deleted my account. I'm thinking maybe even after restoring your purchase, it just restores the Undo and Passport options, but whatever algorithim 'rigs' paid accounts doesn't tap in
If it's only $3 the next time i'll try it again w/o deleting my account, but so far it's not worth it
Every goddamn day. Get in there.

K so I've had plus now for a few weeks and have tested a few things. One thing is for sure, it is MUCH easier to get matches the first few hundred swipes you do with a new account, and gets drastically worse as you progress. Secondly, having plus gives you no advantage in terms of the quality you will get, it definitely doesn't put you in front of the guys without the plus version. The weird thing is, I still get a lot of the same matches each time I make my account, I'm almost wondering if tinder makes you only show up to specific people. I have been on pof and okcupid for a long time, and know what kind of results my pictures can get, and there is NO way that my results on tinder are legit. They guarantee fuck with your chances of getting matches because I would clean up wayyyyy more than I do if it was legit. Granted, I do well on it, but there are literally 100x more hot girls on tinder in my area than pof, and I do very well in online dating with about a 40% response rate. On tinder though, I tested what would happen with a brand new account WITH plus using flamite to bust through over 4000 profiles in a day. In pof or okc, if I messaged 4000 chicks I would have more pussy than I could handle for a year, on tinder though, I LEGIT only got the same number of matches after flamite swiping yes on EVERY SINGLE PROFILE ON TINDER in my area as I did when I didn't have plus and was selective about who I chose.
When I am selective I get about 80 matches in the first week with a new account and that is probably with about 500 swipes right. With flamite, I auto-swiped right on over 5000 profiles in the course of an hour and I got a whopping 80 matches..... Tinder is definitely rigged, and I have concluded the best thing you can do is to be VERY VERY VERY selective of who you pick. I used to swipe right on everyone and then just unmatch the ones I wasn't attracted to afterwards, but it has become obvious to me that the more you swipe right, the worse and worse your odds become of getting matches.
I don't think Tinder only shows you the same people. I am all for quality over quantity btw.
I've been testing out Tinder last few weeks on 3 different phones with multiple different FB. I also used VPN to mask my identity on each phone and I can confirm that I see more or less the same few girls. There are different girls I never see on some account and some I do see on others.
One key note is that girls that have LIKED YOU show up in front of the que over girls who have not seen or did not like you**
There is definitely some randomness to it because the same girls I do see over and over on all 3 phones/accounts are not necessarily the hottest ones, which neglects the theory that hottest girls show up the most. Your age also make difference.
I am extremely picky and only swiped right on about the top 10% of girls, 8+. Takes me about 1000-1200 swipes to hit 100 limit and this was my finding:
On a MM profile with looks on par with Nick Bateman, I used Eliran Biton, I get around a 9% match rate.
On a non MM but probably 8.5-9/10 male, I used Hlimw18 from BB Misc, I got 3.5% match rate.
On my own profile, I am around 7.5-8/10 but my photos needs a lot of work, I get a 1.5% match rate.
I set each account in the same area and let the account remain for 5 days each.
I think what we can conclude is that either girls are either super picky, do not use as Tinder as frequently, have a huge que of guys in front of you who have liked her as well, intimidated by the best looking guys who look better than her, or are simply on there for attention.
At the end of the day, I am trying to get up to a 3% match rate with 8+ girls and that'd be more than enough for me.

I never said this. I said that it seems like your profile only shows up on the girls end to specific girls. There is NO way that my match rate should be as low as it is after flamite spamming 6000 profiles and that is based upon 3 years of online dating experience as well as when tinder wasn't a disaster and I would get a match rate of probably 30% even being picky as fuck. They definitely fucked around with the algorithm or something to make it harder nowadays.
I also notice what you said about some girls showing up for some accounts but not for others. My buddy who is similar looking to me showed me his match list before and I literally hardly recognized any of the girls on there and then showed him mine and he didn't recognize any of mine either. Some profiles have sets of girls show up that don't for other accounts its weird.
^ Could be girls just like different types of guys lol. I noticed that too during my tests.
As long as you're getting matches it's all that matters.
Agreed on they definitely made some changes to the algorithm that makes matches a lot harder. The abysmal sub 10% match rate with guys in top 1% of face doesn't really match up, then again i am not a chick lol
Could also be that they made it harder to trick people into getting plus when in reality it doesn't do jack.
Lol my bad I'm a little oozy after getting back from the gym. But that's weird, because by end of 5 days I more or less recognized all the girls in my area on all 3 phones and thought it was a pretty small world haha, fluke or who knows.
I dont dobut what you say tho. It's just too random and I've already done enough analysis, just get the best pics and do the best you can and forget the rest.
Glad to hear your plus experience helped clear up some of the confusion you had in regards to tinder dc7.
I myself have decided to delete tinder simply because I was using it counterproductively, and I'm only looking to fuck a few girls here and there. I figured I was better off improving my social skills and circle game and just getting laid through that, especially with a new school year coming up.
A few hot girls moved in the apartment below me so it's time to do ma thang! Wish me luck boys

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.
