Tinder

I'm sure at this point that many of you have heard of the new Tinder app, available exclusively (for now) on iPhones, as well as the much Swoon, it's android counterpart. What are your thoughts on these new apps, both from a personal and business standpoint? If your not familiar, do a little research and you can get a good understanding of how these apps work

On the personal side, I feel these apps are actually pretty neat, especially for those of us who are really busy with work and everything. It's actually pretty fun to pass the time just giving the "yes/no" decision to the people you're paired with. Not to mention that it takes a lot of time and effort out of the whole "pick-up" scene. I just stated using recently and I know a lot of guys who have actually met girls in person that they were paired with using the app.

On a business side, I think that these apps definitely need to find a way to better generate revenues other than advertising (most of them don't offer adspace anyway since they are still in their beta versions). Yeah that concept of them is pretty unique and they definitely will change the dating scene but, like facebook, being a "cool idea" doesn't necessarily mean large returns.

Anyway... thought?

It was crazy popular for a while in my area, and now its pretty much dead, waiting for one of the big social media companies to come in and overpay for it

Apr 1, 2013

Tinder will die out soon because people will discover that it is a pointless waste of time. It will have the same outcome as facebook, only it will produce much less revenue because it won't become as big. It died before it could even begin.

If you are working your ass off and you have no time for a girlfriend, and not in the mood to go pick up girls at bars then Tinder is the best alternative. The best way tinder game works is if you come across as high value from the start, first off you gotta tailor your profile to the type of strength you have. If you got the workman 15 then you can say bye bye to shirtless pics. Dress up sharp, bring out your hermes tie and get a professional to take your pic. College girls are always looking for some rich guy all the time. Just know that these girls are not your gf material, I personally have a no stay over policy.

I've known a few Mormons and unless they fell off the reservation and are Jack Mormons, they're all married right after their mission at 19 and have multiple kids before they graduate from BYU. I wouldn't think Tinder is very popular in Provo. (yes, I'm stereotyping, kind of).

If you want a constant supply of tinder sloots you should just put up pics of your hard cawk from different angles. Trust me that's the best strategy

So...does this hold true if you're hung more like a Munchkin rather than Dirk Diggler? And if it's the former, should one go for extreme close ups and use a doll's hand to hold it to make it look bigger or do iphones have some dickpic option that I've never seen.

Btw, I'm asking for a friend.

Can't believe I fucking read that.

  1. Jesus Christ, did anybody bother to proof this? The fuck.
  2. "chasing money and deals on Wall Street" ...... k.
  3. Poor non-target Dan.
  4. No girl is on Tinder with the intention to "turn" any tables. She is on there to be a sloppy slore. And whine about it afterward, apparently.
  5. Why is an entire section dedicated to the musings of a bunch of interns. Why.
  6. Why does she keep mentioning that all of these guys are good-looking? Why does she lie?
  7. Marketing executive, fitness industry, "educator" ........ k.
  8. What in the hell is with these descriptors? Did the writer take like 3 Xannies before writing this? Ambien walrus?

The entire article is a piece of shit. Her pool of respondents consists of a bunch of teenagers from fucking Indiana or Delaware, barely employed chodes who are making the most of some shitty happy hour deal in Alphabet City, and, for fuck's sake, artists.

Again, I can't believe I fucking read all of that.

I'm a huge proponent of online dating, but this article is absolutely atrocious. Basically the author interviewed a bunch of loser bros who grossly exaggerate how much they are getting laid, and she subsequently decided to pump them up in the article. Her hyperbolic descriptions of them are truly hilarious.

Also, try Hinge or League. So much better than Tinder.

happn - haven't tried it enough to form much of an opinion but it seems like a shot in the dark, higher quality on there though

Online dating is sweet

I've had way more luck with CMB, Hinge, and OKC

Tinder is full of a lot of riff-raff and an excess supply problem...Pareto Principle in effect

Apr 1, 2013

You mean an over-supply of guys right?

Apr 1, 2013

lol you mean 80% of guys are attracted by 20% of girls and vice versa?

Apr 1, 2013

ah, the golden 80/20 rule.

Apr 1, 2013

Another observation I'll point out. If you compare the 5 main dating apps for your phone, you'll notice something interesting. Look at the amount of text that will fit on a single line within the app's internal chat. For CMB and OKC, it's a lot of text. For Hinge and Happn, it's an intermediate amount. And for Tinder, it's very little text - like three words and you're on a new line. This distinction might sound ridiculous and irrelevant, but I think there is a direct correlation between this and what people use the apps for. CMB and OKC lean more towards dating, Hinge and Happn are roughly equal combos of dating and quick flings, and Tinder is mostly for hook ups. I think people tend to minimize the number of lines of text they write to avoid appearing overly interested and needy, and since less text fits on a single line, less is said. So, Tinder basically discourages tanglible conversation in a subtle way, thus encouraging people to just stick with the basic logistics for arranging convenient sex encounters.

Think about it.

The difficult part about an app that requires a 100% match for me is height. I'm 5'8". In person, I really don't have a problem with women--most women are satisfied with a guy who is as tall or taller than she is, and most women can't accurately estimate height anyway. Plus, as David Deangelo says, attraction isn't a choice. You may SAY you want a guy who is 6'1" but if you're attracted to a guy who is 5'8" then you're attracted to him. Simple equation. Attraction isn't a choice. Generally, women have many different things they judge a man's attractiveness on in person--wrist watch, clothes and shoes, eyes, personality, sense of humor, career, and, yes, height.

Online, however, women can be very discriminatory about height because they are seeking perfection in a search engine. Compounding that issue is that the algorithm for The League allows women to be matched ONLY with people that meet 100% of their criteria, which pretty much eliminates about 50% of women right off the bat who would never even see my profile. I can't tell you how many women on Match.com have put in height preference of 5'11" to 8'0" (max height), or to some freakishly tall max, like 7'.

That's why my dating has been limited to about 95% in-person first meetings compared to about 5% online.

> I'm 5'8"

I'm assuming this is 5'8" barefoot, so with shoes on you are about 5'9", maybe 5'10" with boots with thick soles. Yeah... I don't think you should be complaining. 5'9" / 5'10" is solidly average in the US.

The reason Tinder works, is because you have an endless sea of people to go through. That's actually part of the appeal to women. 100 guys swiped right today! I'm sexy!

Now what is this? Basically Match but with a much, much smaller user base(under 10k). Here's a pile of attributes. Tell us which ones you want. Ok. Here are your two options. Enjoy!

I'm also shocked at the business model. It's FREE. They vet you(which costs them $$$), and then you have the option of paying $15/month to become invisible. Wow. How they got 2M in VC is beyond me. I guess the hope is that one of the bigger fish will like it, and acquire it.

Im pretty sure if you went to Stanford, label your startup as the "Uber for ____", "Tinder for ____", or "Disrupting the food delivery industry", and you take a word and spell it differently(Ship --->Shyp) you can raise a 7 figure seed round before you even walk in the door.

Honestly, all of the press this is getting I would expect them to raise another sizeable series A round. I saw this all over Buzzfeed, Facebook, Elite Daily, etc. which is their target demographic.

A friend of mine is a member; he's a 2nd year Stanford GSB student. He joined out of morbid curiosity and because he knows the girl who founded the site. By and large, he thinks it's stupid. Basically an "elitist" version of Match, a superficial way for women to feel good about themselves and find a trophy husband.

Yeah they have received a ton of VC funding and lot of media press. They also have a waiting list of 10,000 people.

VTech, you're right that a lot of girls at least believe they prefer taller guys, for whatever reason. It's also true that many girls who "require" 6'+ guys actually are totally fine with a dude who's 5'10" or 5'8" or whatever, they just don't think beyond societal norms.

Having said that... Devils advocate:

Wouldn't you, as a shorter male, prefer such an app? There really are girls out there who prefer shorter guys -- girls who are very short themselves, or actually want to be taller than the guy. Besides, some of them just don't care and know they don't care, and will place a lower height. In such a case, isn't this preferable because you already filter out the girls who will "settle" (in their minds) for a shorter guy? You'll certainly match way less often than your taller counterparts, but who cares? As long as you get a few good choices, you're in the clear, right?

Apr 1, 2013

For height: everyone from real world players to scammy PUA "gurus" have already beaten this dead horse into a bloody pulp..The general consensus is that yes, height does make things easier but a tall guy is still going to underperform at the dating game when compared to a shorter guy who is in better shape, better dressed, and more confident. I used to hang out with one friend who was short, fat, and ugly......catch is that he was an extremely flamboyant, extremely confident, hard partying ex Irish Special Forces sniper. He's the kind of guy that would walk right up to girls and say "nice shoes, wanna fuck?" and I once observed him drink a half bottle of Vodka at the end of the evening without any visible effects. It also helped that he could probably kill you in his sleep, so he wasn't scared of jack shit.

The guy got more women than I've ever seen, and I several times I saw succeed in taking girls from more conventionally "attractive" dudes who were trying to hit on them.

So yes, looks and height help.....but the right "swag" and balls of steelwill win almost every time.

I think height is mostly an issue on these apps where women tend to be more superficial because they're essentially screening out men. with that said, being tall on tinder necesarrily wont help you, but not being tall will definitely hurt you.

It basically just checks the box for some girls.

I think this was the point. Far too many women see finding a man as NOTHING more than checking off a series of boxes. If you don't fit in the box, you're out. That's why there are so many single women who claim there aren't any 'good' guys out there. 9/10, you ought to run from the serial box-checker as fast as you can.

Tinder came about after my time (I was engaged by the time it blew up), but I have some friends and acquaintances who swear by it. From what they tell me, Tinder is actually a lot less about your "stats" (height, income, etc) than a traditional dating site. It's strictly a meat market and the only thing that seems to have a huge impact is the quality of your pictures.

The same is true of dating sites in general though. If you do nothing else to spruce up your profile put up high quality pictures. That means only 3 or 4 pics with ZERO selfies, ZERO cellphone pics, and ZERO pictures with other dudes in it. All of your pictures should be taken with a high quality camera and good lighting. One of them should be semi-professional looking (a sport coat works well), all should show you smiling. Personally I recommend one "cool" picture like a shot of you skiing, scuba diving, or doing whatever your most interesting hobby is, but opinions differ on that one.

"Are you cool enough" algorithm..."curates through LinkedIn"... matchmaking is an age-old game albeit with a new face. Sure there is money to be made in it. They'll probably transition from free service to freemium and premium (likely for males) at some point.

"We do not size up matches by their salaries". Probably because that data is not readily available. Wait till that comes online in a reliable fashion.

Per Dealbreaker:

Description: "We want people to think of The League as a little more grown up and tasteful, for young professionals who want to go out for a coffee or a drink and aren't just about hooking up," Bradford says. To get only the most serious singles, Bradford feels it's important to be highly selective rather than target hard-partying college students...Unlike Hinge and Tinder, The League relies more on LinkedIn than Facebook to determine who is up to snuff. Bradford says she and her friends frequently LinkedIn-stalk dates before meeting them for coffee to make sure they aren't scary and that their goals align.

Some responses:

"Finally an app where PR/Marketing/Fashion/Interior Design girls can meet their finance husband. No more indirect questions about what bank he works for at Brother Jimmy's!"

"Bradford says she and her friends frequently LinkedIn-stalk dates before meeting them for coffee to make sure they aren't scary and that their goals align."

You have to stalk people to make sure they're not psychos? Wait, what?"

"The League will most likely launch in New York City next,"

I think most people will agree that what New York really needs are more women who will value a guy for his LinkedIn profile.

You probably have good results because you're better looking. If you've having "good" results it also doesn't mean you can't get better results by cleaning up your presentation a bit.

The rules for camera types are there for a good reason. They've found that picture quality significantly impacts how likely people are to message you/swipe you on any online dating platform....with pictures being taken on a cellphone camera coming across significantly worse.

For why you don't want other guys in the picture: it's about controlling where the attention goes. You want them looking at you alone, not comparing you to other guys. Obvious exception that proves the rule if you're that much more handsome than everyone else.

I'm on it after a friend told me to sign up. They make a big deal about the waitlist, said I was 12,482 of 12,482 when I signed up, and then cleared me within 24 hours. You're assigned a "personal concierge" which is allegedly some decent looking chick, who just pesters you to invite other "league-worthy" friends who can use your invite to skip the waitlist. Sure, I'll go ahead and add competition to the dating pool so you can brag about your 1,500% MoM user growth.

Summary: no difference in "quality" of women on there vs. Tinder, Hinge, or any other BS clone with some "edgy feature". The fact they raised $2.1MM amazes me.

It really is a joke. It was started by an entitled Stanford GSB alum who thinks she's God's gift to man because she knows programming and went to a good school.

Tinder is easy, definitely a lot less creepier than Craigslist LOL!

I've used tinder and while I have heard a few select stories of it turning into something, for the most part its just a fun way for us to be shallow and practice our oh-so-cheesy pickup lines.

I've had a couple friends use grouper and the experience setting up that date and everything was smooth - the turnout however wasn't great.

Never heard of hinge/coffee meets bagel, so I cant comment on those.

They were gay men that accidentally swiped right; so when you guys matched and they looked at your picture they realized it was a mistake and they blocked you immediately.

I uninstalled it and now all my fucking matches are gone. I was trying to bang a chick who's turning 18 this fucking weekend what the fuck. My thumb is sore for nothing.

Dude doesn't it take way too long to load the match? That's the decision: is this girl hot enough that I will wait for the match notification? That's why I stay swiping left most of the time. There should be a way to skip that and then check all your matches after.

I don't understand what you're saying. I just mass swipe right without even looking for ~3 min, wait for ~10 matches to come in, block the ugs, and message the cuties.

Edit: Which is also largely how I handle applying to internships on my school's career site. Has worked very well.

OMG I was just taking a shit and remembered that chick is a Sunday School teacher. I banged a Sunday School teacher! That's a fucking flag! Last night was not for naught after all. She's that branch of Christianity with the father, the son, and the holy ghost and all that, which is cool with Tinder, I guess.

Achievement unlocked? Pretty sure this counts. This thread is getting me through a very slow workday.

It is impossible to figure out women, but if you can seal the deal with emojis and mathematical symbols that is pretty damn awesome.

Oh, SundaySchoolGirl left her North Face protein shaker in my car. So that's good. She had nutella in her room and I never got to eat it off her though, which is upsetting. Would have been two flags.
