I've used pretty much all the dating apps. Plenty of Whales, OKcupid, Match, and Tinder. I've had pretty decent success on all of them. There is a new one out called Bumble. Can't seem to make it work for me. For those of you who aren't familiar, it's a Tinder format BUT the girl contacts you first. There is seemingly a ton of hot girls on it. However, I'm beginning to think they're fake profiles. I would say I get 1 match on there for every 4 on Tinder. 1 out of 3 matches actually contacts me.
And no, it's not that I'm ugly and/or my pics suck. I've probably banged about 30 girls off online dating in the last 3-4 years.
i feel the same as you dude, i do very well on tinder and use the exact same pictures and just don't get any matches on bumble. it's all location in my opinion man. i don't think bumble has made it big on the west coast yet. i think it'll get better with time. matched with like 6 chicks in one day in NYC and 2 in 3 weeks out here on the west coast. I'm in a big city in the southwest.
Brooklyn - My pics are fine. However, my best friend is a professional photog so I may have some pro shots taken. Tinder was good but I think I let it run it's course. I was matching between 20-30 girls in the first week. It's slowed for me this go around. Just a fun fact about my pics: Years ago when I was on online dating POF actually stole one of my pics and used it for ads all over the internet. My ex at the time went to visit her friends out in Cali and her one girl friend points to a pic on a banner and says "Why can't I find a guy like that?" My ex goes "Umm that's my boyfriend"
Pic 1: Classy headshot
Pic 2: Professional photo of me fishing
Pic 3: Professional photo of me fishing, farther out body shot
Pic 4: Shot of me shirtless on the beach in Rio De Janeiro Brazil
Pic 5: Pic of me and my puppy
Ultra - Yeah there's no rhyme or reason. When I travel I will match like crazy. I don't have a "city look"
What 99% of guys say who aren't getting the success they want online but don't know why.
You need better pics. You're not a social retard, me and you both already know that, so the only thing it boils down to is your pics.
Or there's also the possibility where the app is sabotaging your results, I remember when I was convinced tinder was fucking me over on purpose lol (I still think that it was!). I'd have crazy success, then it would die down and I'd have to delete my account and make a new one to get a hot streak going again.
This app fucking sucks donkey dick, I made a profile, had like 6 matches and had to wait for them to message me first. Scotty once said that girls won't take the initiative, so it will take forever to get a consistent date/lay ratio. I will keep it thou, always expand your horizons.
DC- Or the app is sabotaging me lol. I had the same problem with tinder. I was getting 20-30 matches within the first 2-3 days. Now this go around I have maybe 10 in a week. I am in fact being more selective with swiping this time. Bumble is weird. First couple times I tried it, it seemed like every profile was a model. This time around its tons and tons of mediocre girls. They're fucking around in some way. I think they potentially were pumping fake profiles in during the early days of the app.
Cart - One thing I did notice with this app is yes, the women sometimes are slow to take the initiative. Maybe the better word is reluctant. For a girl to get rejected is like having her pet puppy die. If you have a girl that hasn't contacted you, extend the match. I've done that a couple times and the girl reaches out.
And Brooklyn...there is no way this app is instant. It doesn't use my location services while running the app, for starters. What that tells me is it queues you as you swipe. Second, this morning I woke up to like 4-5 matches. I'm sorry but neither Tinder nor Bumble is "instant-live matching."

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!
