Have you had any luck with dating apps?

I just want to know the experiences others had with sites like tinder, ok cupid, etc.

  • I met my boyfriend on an app. It wasn't a dating app. We hit it off and exchanged numbers and from there he instantly became attracted to me. He asked if I wanted to be his girlfriend. It wasn't a fairytale ending because he's in the process of moving to be with me.

  • I had insanely good luck when I used to use them but I never took them seriously and never really used them that often. I met jerks too - but its not hard to resolve that issue - ignore them and never speak to them again.

  • Well it depends. On POF I had several look at my profile. Had a few, through the app, text me. However the ones my age wouldn't text. The younger ones were the ones texting.
    The second app Mingle 2 I have mostly ones, again way too young, 21 to 35 texting me. I'm 49. I did get a match to someone who's 2 years younger. We've been talking and finding we have a lot in common. So this next Sunday we're going to meet. So I guess if the age didn't mean a thing to me I'd have plenty to choose from.

  • I've done ok on match. com, even as a divorced guy with kids. In 4 months talked on the phone with 7 women, 1-2 dates with 4 different women and then 1 really stuck out, we've been together almost 1 year. I even took 2 webinars which were pretty helpful.

    You have to be realistic when you are going through a lot of people in a short time. Only 1 out of 4 you chat with you'll want to meet, then 1 out of 4 of those you'll want to see again. You have to learn to sort out the BS which might be tough when you're younger. But it's experience! One thing though - if a woman acts interested at first then has second thoughts of meeting: red flag! She's hiding something or catfish

    • Thanks for the tips!

    • You are young. First time I did it I was 18. My tip for your age is to keep standards high in terms of nice straightforward women. And don't rush. There are crazies, and hot ones which will mess with your head. But that is life. Women will complain about commit this and that. But you really do need to have a minimum sample of personality types before you know what is right for you. The more of an honest stand-up guy you are which isn't ready to commit, the more they will want you. But this is your life. Do what you need to do.

  • I only ever downloaded tinder once for jokes, and I got plenty of messages, most of which were unremarkable, pathetic or perverted.

  • Found my love on POF and I couldn’t be happier. I made sure to put in my bio no I don’t want to fuck. No I don’t want to meet up etc etc though I still got those guys then I got this message from this guy which we automatically hit off and now he’s planning on marrying me

    • It's the same the other way around with those that write, some of those are only after sex. the rest is match addict's and those looking for to be entertained otherwise no answer.

  • Well me and my dude (match) have been together a year + and going strong with long term visions.

  • Well uuntil I met my boyfriend, I had zero lucks on the dating app. For the most part I got perverts. I guess I was lucky to meet my boyfriend on a dating app, even though its not the most romantic way.

  • Eh.. no. I’ve been on like 3 dates they blew. Tried tinder. Nothing but dick offers. POF dick offers and hella prostitutes. Meet me. Weirdos, racists, and perverts. Bumble. Stuck up ass men trying to fuck... I met my most recent ex of POF and he was okay, just stuck up and kinda violent. So... I’ll declare dating apps a FAIL for me.
    If I really want to meet someone I’m doing eharmony or match. com. Pay for actual compatibility tested match ups. All men do is look at the photo. They don’t read shit on your profile.

    • Most men dont read, but I do

    • Show All
    • I don't know if call the so called matching a true thing, 1) eharmony has a problem on aus site won't let any join, 2) be2 is a con uses same matching for 80 a month but u can't search freely, u get given 10 random files a day, only way see more is if they viewed you, biggest part of con, u can cancel the auto renewal on site u have to fax them with details & reason y lol or they will keep hitting ur card even if not use, match didn't look any better either, always be bad people no matter what site go as easy to lie, u think the so called compat test protect you from liying on the test in 1st place, it always comes down to finding the genuine which is so much harder these days for both sides

    • It’s less likely these men will lie at the$80 price mark than free. I’ll take your ideas into consideration.

  • Most guys seemed to only want sex, they didn't seem to know how to carry on a simple conversation so it wasn't worth it. But some find the good ones so you never know

    • Yikes!!! Sorry to hear that. I use Bumble also and of course being a dude I have to let the lady make the first move per how the app is set up. On the other hand I've read it's set up like that on purpose to help cut down on sexual harassment.

  • i prefer the old school way of meeting people in bars or through friends!

  • It was a disaster.
    I'm always told that I'm naturally beautiful but I wasn't good with pics before. I chatted with a lot of guys to test it and discovered the most superficial crappy people you can ever find.

    They made me self conscious about things that are not there and even told me how to dress to there taste. A stranger telling me how to live my life and dress? No thank you. They were so brave to judge behind screens but they won't if they were in front of me.

    Maybe it was bad luck but never again.

  • I think it's a waste of time. Reports have shown that 70% of women only use the app for an ego stroke, window shop or boredom and most aren't interested in meeting any guys. I've had matches and some convos, but never got to meet anyone.

  • Lots of luck, all of it bad... people tend to pick and choose by image alone and as we all should know, the pictures are doctored, strategically taken for the best light and after an hour of makeup, prep, and dressing up. Not what they look like any given moment of the day. Fake personalities and an unrealistic expectations. I found it easier to meet in public than social media

  • I had three dates on those (after devoting to them an absurd amount of time):

    First date was fat as a whale.
    Second was clinically depressed.
    Third appeared to the dates only if she felt so.

    Fuck you women.

  • Had lots of luck: bad luck. Eventually learned through trial and error dating apps are not for me. I am not looking for short term hook ups and prefer to meet women who have actually grown up and can tell the truth about how they feel.

  • I downloaded tinder about 3 years ago thinking it was a simple dating app. It was nothing but an app for hookups. The girl I did meet who was actually interested in dating turned out to be batshit crazy, I'm talking there had to be some kind of anger disorder kind of crazy. Hooooooolyyyyyyy shiiiiiit.

  • I have tried Tinder, Bumble, and okCupid.
    I managed to find a girlfriend for a short-time off Tinder, and two dates.
    Nothing else remarkable though.
    Many of the women on those sights are not looking for actual relationships, so it really is a waste of time.

  • I haven't. There seems to be a lot of fake profiles just trying to sell sex on there. I've been on the apps on and off for multiple years and have only had one date come from it and it didn't ever go past one date.

  • I've never had any luck all my life using dating apps. That was until just two days ago when I matched with someone VERY promising on OkCupid.
    I feel like I'm hard to get along with because I'm "different," but she and I seem to have a lot in common (and I mean a LOT). We've been talking for two days and have been getting along really well so far. She plays tenor sax which I want to learn, and I play trumpet which she wants to learn, so that's really cool. And on top of that, I know not everything is about looks, but goddamn she is SO pretty! I'm a sucker for eyes and I think hers are just amazing!
    So anywho, we're now making plans to meet in person soon, which I'm excited for.
