Many people don't have the social skills anyway and think dating apps somehow can bypass their lack of social interaction capabilities.
True, but there are many normal people on dating apps too, that just dont have the time to look for a partner in other ways
I don't disagree. I used them quite a bit... I just didn't have the time myself to go prowling around bars at night.
Thanks for the MVO.. 🙏❤
Spot on! love it!
MATCH still seems to be the leader in dating apps for sure!
My friend said "it has the best algorithm for matching people to each other." I only tried match and tinder, so I can't be positive on the best. Those were two separate worlds.
Match has more possibilities... for sure! The database is HUGE!
Eh honestly, it mixes in too much too od those who want to hook up and those who want to date. A dating app should be specific for its intentions.

You're 49 anf looking for women in their 20's and 30's?
I am guessing you use only the FREE version of the apps?
No. I paid for these ones.
Did you pay and then put up shitty photos? Did you have a photographer take the photos or were they just from your phone?
Professional photos and regular photos of friends and with other women too. It has gotten me more results with attractive women, but after talking with them for a bit I feel no connection or spark. I tried. My philosophy is try rather than not try at all. Nothing good ever comes free.
99 percent of the time my clients that have said this had terrible photos. I am going to assume you are the 1% that did everything right and it just didn't work! You at least tried!
You and I have talked before, man. I have read Corey Wayne's 3% man book 5 times now and it's starting to resonate with me more and more
Yeah Corey is great! Great book!
Ignorance is bliss! It always is!
I agree, I hope men one day men will learn to have more of an abundance mindset instead of a scarcity mindset.
It's not that serious! lol
Oh maybe! Are there genuine guys out there tho? Hookups are not my thing.
Yes of course! But you have to have patience to weed through the much to get to the good stuff! Just like a bar full of drunks... it's no different!
Yeah there are weirdos on tinder and all the other dating apps. From my ex has told me even lyft and uber drivers try to use that to ask ladies out, and can react badly when they're rejected.
@CausticHippy that's exactly what I'm scared of. Better to be safe then sorry!
Millions of people have used them successfully. Don't be scared of the world.. just navigate it with some common sense.
Coach is right too
Yes, there are genuine guys.
Eh I girl by me dinner from uber it was a good date, but then afterwards things went south and she stole my Microsoft Windows 10 book, gotta be careful.
A girl* sorry my auto correction failed me, must be tired.
@Dreewskii Uber isn't for dating.
The idea I've gotten from many girls on this site is that the girls tend to do hook ups on there too. It's hard to find a person not into that.
Well originally I put a lot of faith in the dating apps, I finally realized that it was fruitless as far as actually looking for someone to have a relationship with. I mean don't get me wrong I had five straight f****** dates that were crazier than s*** it was then that I decided that in the future it was no more than just a entertainment a value!@!!
And the guys who are serious don't get matches because dating apps tend to be to shallow.
@nathanp97 I think I'd get matches if I tried and I'm serious. I'm picky though and doubt there'd be many girls I'd find appealing. I bet most women on there are overweight and not my type.
I use online dating, and that isn't true. I don't have many decent photos because I normally don't take photos of myself, so that is likely part of the reason I don't get many matches.
@nathanp97 Most women being overweight and not my type isn't true?"I don't have many decent photos because I normally don't take photos of myself, so that is likely part of the reason I don't get many matches."Take photos of yourself then?
@cavmanier I mean photos look better if others take them of you rather than a bunch of selfies. so I get where he's coming from. Aside from pics though, guys just aren't taking it seriously I feel. or their expectations are too high like they think they're gonna find a trophy wife or victoria secret model or something I don't know
"I mean photos look better if others take them of you rather than a bunch of selfies. so I get where he's coming from"I personally think (guessing) that girls tend to care more about those kinds of photos where someone else takes the picture of the guy doing an activity. Like they want to see guys standing next to the temple in Peru or riding a camel in Egypt right? That's what it seems like. Girls want to be impressed. For me though, a normal full length mirror pic or selfie of their face and body is just as good as their astronaut picture of them being impressive on the moon.On expectations, we all have our needs there. I've looked on a dating site a long time ago and I did not see physically attractive women. There's a couple here or there. God bless the average guy for messaging those girls 100 times a day though. Maybe I'm just picky. I don't find many women attractive or my type I guess.
@cavmanier Your expectations are either too high or you have a case of being A sexual and don't fucking know it!
I'm definitely not asexual. Not close, unless wanting sex with them everyday is asexual. I wouldn't say my expectations are too high because I've dated many beautiful women. For me it's maybe 5 or 10 percent of girls (my age even lower t b h) at least in the US. Now if I was in eastern Europe or Asia, that would increase.
@cavmanier Then you are a sociopath. Clear and cut case. I am certainly sure you will disagree.
Why would who I'm sexually attracted to make me a sociopath?
@cavmanier It's the glbness and superficial charm that makes you one.
Well I'm 100% law abiding (to a ridiculous extent), and highly empathetic. I'm being honest on an site designed to talk about preferences.It seems like to me that you are offended by my preference and want to tag me with some type of insult because of it.
@cavmanier Nah I saw what I saw so I gave my opinion... that's what GAG is for so... agree to disagree. Thanks for the comments!
Yeah you saw what you saw and tried to make a clinical diagnosis that you aren't qualified to do off a few sentences on the internet. It doesn't bother me because I know your opinion isn't valuable but talking that way to an impressionable kid on this site can potentially be highly abusive and even considered bullying. I did nothing to insult you while you tried to bring me down with an insult of being asexual, another about being a sociopath and two more of being glib and having superficial charm due to you feeling insulted. If you are 20, oh well but you are 48 and supposed to be an influencer that kids are paying attention to. You aren't showing much of a good example here. You're acting like you haven't grown up.
@cavmanier You should report me and stop talking!
y'all need a room l
Honestly I think my ex just needs to get over it... it's weird and I'm not coming back, and she's not killing me so yea...
That is like going to the casino and expecting to win without putting money in the machine!
Would you consider what you put OUT there average at best (profile bio and photos?) Or your best?
I would say my most natraul. Was trying to give the vibe of a chill person and types of hobbies I was into. My opinion I feel I just do better in person.
LOL well if you do good in person then stick with what you know is what I say!
Well it would be dope if I could find a Hb7-9 an easier and more efficient way Lol. Got any tips
Or what are your thoughts on dating apps?
Invest in photos, bio and time into online dating. My clients slay because of three things. They pay a photographer to take their photos, they upgrade the app so they can see who the fuck likes them, and they are ruthless in scheduling at least 2 dates a week. It's really not hard... it just takes some commitment and investment. My buddies in Dallas would spend 100 bucks a night on buying girls drinks and get nowhere... where i spent 25 bucks a month and talk to as many chicks as I wanted. It was SICK!
Nice, I'll keep those tips in mind.
There are plenty of fakes but hard to weed out? Really?
Yes it can be hard, if you have a certain mind set, fortunately for me the two guys I have met on dating apps have both turned out to be gents in the sense they were genuinely looking to find the one and not try anything on.
Ha Ha Ha Big Jim Carey "let me tell ya something" laugh
Looks / money / pics of guys in Peru, Egypt and France.
I don't know man... you sure about that? What does patience mean? What is a proper profile? Sounds good and all but I don't know dude lol
Coach T the dating guru. Are you saying your having trouble on them too?
@Creepazoid This is going to be a fun night!
Most girls are looking for sex. I can't find anyone who wants anything other than just playing around.
You mean "sift" through what the app allows you to "sift" through for FREE?
I've never tried a paid one, true enough
So basically that would be the equivalent of standing in line for a "ladies night" at a bar and only smelling the perfume because you ain't getting in! LOL
Maybe so just bad experience with the free ones makes me hesitant
Well you have to remember when you pay 20 bucks at the door for ladies night it's because the promoter went out of his way to advertise to women so that YOU could spend 4 hours talking to them. In the end it's no different.. it's a business. Check out that bar on a Tuesday night (not ladies night) and you will get the same result as the FREE version of a dating app.
If you aren't short on looks then you are short on GOOD PHOTOS! This shit works like a fucking charm. 99% of people do it wrong but most who do it wrong rather say it doesn't work and be right then asking well what can I do? That is the difference... just look at all the opinions...100% sure they have done everything correctly and that it just doesn't work... sad really!
Photos are fine too they get 60+ likes on Facebook. So I don’t see much wrong. I think it’s because your 48 you have a job a place and life us teens are well the girls are a bit shallow and selective. Id imagine if you were in the UK around my age today you’d struggle regardless.
Wonder why the FTC hasn't shut them down. Billions of dollars stolen from people. So sad. I feel ya man.
I refuse bars and clubs. I never did it growing up, and I will be damned if I do it now. I get the whole "your not my type" based on looks and "Your totally repulsive and ugly" on top of people who still have the same fucking mindset as they did 30 years ago! They still run with the same circle of people. Lets put it this way, if you got married, in one part of town, the other side knows already. Thats how this place is.
I remember you telling me! I forgot why you said you couldn't escape that place!
I take care of my 84 yr old mother.
Well we all have to do what we have to do! God bless ya man!
One thing that bothers me with dating sites is the way they try to hook you in saying its free to join and free to set up a profile but that's as far as it goesSo you join, set up a profile and add some photosQuite soon afterwards you start getting messages from those who ate supposedly interested to know you.Then of course you attempt to reply only to be hit with payment optionsI agree that these sites have to make money to exist but many use underhanded tactics to get you to part with your cashi would question those that achieve a huge response rate moments after creating a profile. I wonder if they are not fakes designed to encourageb you to upgrade to a paid membership.I've decided the best way of meeting someone is to learn to overcome shyness and become more outgoing and try meeting someone in real every day lifeMoney I think would be wasted on dating sites is better and more enjoyably on going out there and being available
You do what you think is best! It's all good my man!
So you match a lot when you travel? How does that help you in the long run?
It doesn't I don't really look when I travel I just get notified a lady liked me.
Yeah because the app follows you around and goes by the city you are currently in! There should be something in settings that STOPS the app from following you and just maintains the zipcode you entered.
Women like the exoticness I think.
