We all want to know don’t we, as men, if our sexual experiences stack up with others.
A platform like Tinder let’s our minded wander. “If only my nose were a little smaller... I’d get more matches.” Or whatever it is.
The proverbial, ‘what if’ scenario.
I have been dying to test Tinder with photos of very attractive men. And I haven’t because I’d need to delete my personal account to do that and I’m just not willing because I can get matches on the app.
But somebody on Reddit with nothing to lose did try this. Here are his results:
Funny enough, a guy can’t help but apply that what if reasoning here to the data. “But what if he was super built like a body builder and posted a shirtless photo! Surely then he could get as many matches as the girls do!...” who knows.
The fact is, having boobs is the strongest predictor of high amounts of matches on Tinder. And while a ‘hot guy’ gets 15x as many matches as an average guy, the hot guy still gets 11x less matches than a girl.
Let that sink in. Ladies reading, see the plight of male dating. (It’s why we come on here and groan and whatnot).
Ironically, the hotter guy got less message responses from more matches than the average guy from the few girls that did match him. This in theory reveals a little bit on how women choose partners from abundance of options.
Perhaps perceiving one guy as having too much female competition? (Who knows). But there’s something in that, for sure.
What’s cool about this is that it shows that even hot guys struggle on Tinder. Which may or may not blow some minds, make and female included.
Here’s the take away. If you’re a girl and want casual sex, Tinder is so effective for you that you could literally have as many options as you could ever want. If you’re a guy, even if you are hot, it’s not a reliable source if sex to meet your needs, unfortunately it’s only reliably good for one gender.
Will keep readers posted when I figure out a reliable way for single men to get their sexual needs met on a regular basis. I just found this enlightening.
