I tried Tinder a while back and I was actually pretty impressed by the whole idea. It's really simple and you end up matching with members of the opposite sex who are usually about the same in attractiveness or less than yourself. I'm not a bad looking guy myself, I'd probably rate myself a solid 8 on most days so I did get quite a few matches but most of them didn't lead to anything. About half the girls I matched with wouldn't respond back and the other half just wanted endless conversation. During the week I used Tinder I probably matched with 50 women but I only actually met up with 2 of them.
A few days ago I wanted to see something so I created a fake Tinder account using pictures of a model that I found on Instagram. This guy is so ridiculously good looking like its not even funny. Here is what my fake Tinder profile looked like:
About: UC Berkley Alumni. Portfolio Management/Risk Analysis. Workaholic. In LA for work until Saturday. Usually free after 8 pm.
I started swiping and within an hour I had over 20 matches. And I only swiped for girls that seemed like 8+ otherwise I'm sure I would have gotten way more matches. About half of the girls that matched me actually messaged me first within the first hour of matching them.
So bottom line Tinder for guys definitely does work for hooking up but its a lot easier if you are super gorgeous :)
