Most girls on Tinder only use it to boost their insta followers right ?

Reddit View
January 31, 2020

This app is so awful tbh,

First you need to text her, it's so boring because most girls on Tinder are dumb, they only answer :

"Yes" "Haha" "Okay" "Nice" " :)" "I like netflix, clubbing and going to mcdonalds and you?"

So know, to avoid this useless shit texting phase, i just ask the girl in a date after like 5 messages and most of them flakes and give shit excuses or something like

"It's going to fast, i need to know you, add me on insta"

I know i'm good looking otherwise i wouldn't never be on this app, i always have ton of match, for like 50 matches, i maybe get around 3 dates ? Which result in around 1 or 2 average girls fucked per month using Tinder like a tryhard which is ridiculous (Im in a small town thought like 50k people in it)

I even made a catfish account with a male model, who had like 300k followers on insta, and its the same thing as when i use my real pic, lot of match, but lot of girls flake when you ask in a date

Is it just me or i feel like 90% of girls only use tinder for instagram followers and validation ? and like 10% of them to get fucked ?

It became very hard to meet girls when you are not in university and work from your home, most clubs in my town are closing because people don't go out as much as before since Netflix - Tinder and social medias

It seems like approching at bar is my only option now, fuck tinder really, tryharding so much on this app to fuck one or two average girls per month is so worthless

What do you guys think?

It’s not just you. My match and message rate is very high, but my flake rate is so high that it negates any reason for having the app. I need to cold approach

[–]OfficerWade6 points7 points  (8 children) | Copy

This right here, lots of good comms within the app but anytime I schedule a meeting I get ghosted. Facebook however has never let me down. Don’t be afraid to use that match maker!

[–]Mzo20163 points4 points  (7 children) | Copy

instagram has got me laid so many times!! but these dating apps... its crazy

[–][deleted]  (6 children) | Copy


[–]Mzo20163 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Its really a process.. You usually start with low likes, the more you follow friends and new girls, post nice pictures about hobbies, just your face or with friends. Itll rack up by itself. I start talking to girls usually when they post something on their storiea and its a slow process from there.

[–]Mzo20162 points3 points  (3 children) | Copy

just dont feel ugly because you dont have many likes.

[–][deleted]  (2 children) | Copy


[–]Mzo20161 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

yea its more about whose the most active on insta, knows the most people or is the most attractive. You should follow these old friends!

[–]ghosthumper_691 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

yea its more about whose the most active on insta,

fr..those accounts with a lot of engagement and likes..yeah those people are literally online all the fucking time and they're aways watching your stories..or atleast browsing through.

[–]gimmickless-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

If you actually want more likes, you need a strategy to engage with people who use the platform a lot. This interview talks about one strategy that worked.

[–]TheDero70 points71 points  (5 children) | Copy

It will only get worse over time. It's just another bullshit social media app at this point. "Swipe surge" "Tinder Gold" "Tinder Gold Plus" all selling points to make their $$ from desperate guys. Use it very lightly. You can still meet girls and fuck them but it is a beta feeding ground for these chicks. A girl I talk to is a solid 5/6 and has hundreds upon hundreds of matches thanks to dog filters and the right angles.

Shirtless Chad is the only profile worth keeping up on there

[–]Hungboy696942012 points13 points  (0 children) | Copy

Right ime it was decent years ago and now is a full blown money trap

[–]jackandjill220 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Dog filters. Don't get how filters are going to affect someone's opinion if a girl at all.

[–]AegonTheC0nqueror15 points16 points  (1 child) | Copy

It covers literally half their face. That's why

[–]TheDero20 points21 points  (0 children) | Copy

Take a tinder girl out with nothing but snapchat filters on her profile, and let me know how that goes for you buddy. Take her to a seafood restaurant so you can have two servings of catfish

[–]The-Knowing30 points31 points  (4 children) | Copy

Most? No. But of course plenty do, especially the really hot tinder girls.

Here are the primary reasons girls use tinder:

  • They are curious as to what their theoretical options are
  • Gives them an opportunity to connect with guys with way higher SMV without risking rejection like in real life
  • Feeds their ego with validation from the absolute boatload of men matching with them and sending them openers and pickup lines

Tinder pretty much sucks, but it's low effort and will work if your SMV is 7+ and you put a little effort into your pics - if not, then don't bother, you're in for a rude awakening.

IRL is better. Say you hook up with HB6s on tinder, then you're probably capable of going 2 steps up with real life game. But hey, the more the merrier, so why not if your SMV is high.

[–]Hungboy696942014 points15 points  (3 children) | Copy

Imo apps are better for women, IRL is better for men

[–]The-Knowing25 points26 points  (2 children) | Copy

IRL is better for both, but the easy access to fast-food style dopamine is simply too hard to resist, and I can't say I don't understand it.

These tinder girls aren't living their best lives. They might feel validated and they might get to be pumped and dumped by some super high smv dudes. In the long term none of this is fulfilling to them.

Things that come easy don't fulfill you, and for women internet validation and semen comes flooding with the swipe of a finger.

[–]Hungboy69694209 points10 points  (0 children) | Copy

AF/BB. I had a hoe run last year that resembles what you're talking about. It was basically shallow validation, over and over again. It got addicting and then it became meaningless so I stopped . I'm pretty indifferent atm, though I'll probably rear my head again in the spring

[–]watchguy457 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

I find online dating so boring now.

Went through a stage a couple years ago where i ran through over 100 bumble/hinge sluts

[–]monky-loves-you10 points11 points  (0 children) | Copy

This is correct, it's just to get orbiters and build their follower count. Any girl that posts her instagram tag in her profile is automatically trying to do this, because she just wants followers even from the guys she swipes left from, guys who think they still have a chance if they like enough of her posts she'll notice them.

Never fall for this, treat anything but a number or a messaging app as a rejection and move on. Fail fast is better.

[–]RPthrowaway1235 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

You're spot on. I've given up online dating entirely, going back to the old fashioned way.

[–]sharkymcstevenson6932 points33 points  (26 children) | Copy

I fuck girls on Tinder and other dating apps regularly. However, I’m always gaming and approaching in person. I don’t invest any importance in the apps and don’t pay the retarded cuck fees. I use the free versions and sometimes a smokin babe gets a wild hair up her ass and wants to fuck a stranger, potentially me. Treat it like the cheap commodity it is and keep your expectations realistic.

You wouldn’t give as much of a fuck about some stupid app if you were approaching women and getting results.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (25 children) | Copy

Is the time investment worth the odd fuck?

[–]sharkymcstevenson6922 points23 points  (22 children) | Copy

What time investment? I swipe for 10 minutes a day tops. I don’t play stupid games either I get straight to the point. No endless chit chat bullshit.

[–]Truedemocracy60 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Lol swiping on the toilet = time investment?

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm starting to think all social media is bad irrespective of how much time you spend on it.

[–]wont_tell_i_refuse_21 points22 points  (2 children) | Copy

Plenty of chicks on there do want to fuck. They just may not want to fuck you.

[–]I_LOVE_CHIPS0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Bingo. There are for sure a lot of flakes and instagram hoes, but not for Chad.

[–]DANYboy520 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah but he said he used a models account as well

[–]Hedser916 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

If finding girl(s) is like fishing tinder is like throwing out a line in a small pond that is being overfished. You can put in the line because you never know.. But if you want to greatly improve your catch and even want to catch that big fish you gotta move to better waters. And while you're there maybe use a net instead of a pole and line. Now your efforts can pay off, no need to put effort into that line in the overfished pond, just check that line from time to time but no more. Because where your fishing skills truly shine is in that "secret" creek nobody is fishing and that is where you will put your effort.

[–]johncillo4 points5 points  (3 children) | Copy

Tinder is a female validation tool, so if you keep the bait happy (the girls) they will constantly open up these apps.

I have a script that has got me laid and got some plates out of it. However, these are mainly chicks with low self steem sometimes just looking for revenge sex or a hook-up. 20% of the time works all the time.

[–]silvereddi-1 points0 points  (2 children) | Copy

Show me that Script im curious

[–]johncillo3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

Well I can break it to you. It goes like this:


-Posting a wink gif with someone who doesnt know how to wink and adding: “I don’t know how to wink” always gets response or a chuckle.

  • “I know this profile is fake but can you give me the name of the model from the pics to send her a message?”

  • if there is a picture with a dog “You look cute, your human is not bad”.


  • “what’s my tinder crush doing?” Or “right now I am talking to my tinder crush, I think she might like me, what should I say to her”

After response, continue with: - “ I have 2 important questions to sweep you off your feet”

Validations (I like to validate them in 2 things, if they do sports and food for the upcoming date) “The questions are: - Do you like sports? - Do you prefer sushi or italian? Proceed with caution...”

After the response: “Excellent responses, I just like being dramatic”

And then: “ How does it sound <something active, sporty> <food of choice> , and an adventure with me in my white horse?” (I own a white car)

After the response: -“I might need your number to coordinate the date” -“I might need your number while I work up the courage to ask you out”

After the number is sent there are other scripts but I will leave it, I need to go to bed.

Edit: formatting

[–]silvereddi0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Interesting, gonna try that out

[–]liquorbaron3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

It goes for all online dating apps owned by Matchgroup. Never used Bumble so I don't know if it's similar in the amount of women on there just using it as a means to self promote their Instagram or other alternative app that they have as a means for income.

[–]SalporinRP2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Tinder used to be amazing but is now filled with bots and attention whores. You can still fuck girls off of tinder but it's nothing like it used to be 5-6 years ago.

I use Hinge now. More geared towards setting up a first date than an outright hookup but 70% of the girls on tinder aren't down to just come over to hookup anyways.

I've also realized that I prefer to meet women out in public first so I can assess if they're crazy or not. I had a bad experience where I invited this tinder girl over and she happened to be a fucking nutjob.

[–]Pimpcool4200 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Where are you from?

I'm in Canada and tried hinge for the first time. The girls on Hinge look better, but with the exact same profile pics as my Tinder I get ZERO likes on Hinge (almost 6 weeks now).

[–]Per_Horses61 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

It’s shit, I’m gonna delete mine soon. Cold approach is the move now

[–]HastaPronto901 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

They flake, because they found a better guy who massaged them and who fits in their category. Maybe your are not that good looking as you think, people overrate their looks all the time.

[–]Truedemocracy62 points3 points  (4 children) | Copy

Real talk tbh if you’re high value dating apps are a fuck fest for you. I’m a dude and used to use it for validation

The “women aren’t on it to meet guys” is cope by low value dudes

[–]jackandjill220 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Interesting. That dude seems to have invested a substantial amount of time in making a profile tho

[–]Truedemocracy61 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

And that time is still worth it if it yields results lol

[–]jackandjill220 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy


[–]PeautyBrinciple1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Infinite options for 4+/10 women means it's a waste of time unless you are a top 5% guy. Work on yourself and forget apps until you're high enough value.

[–]PinacoladaSauce0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Not really. There’s tinder game, there’s text game, and there’s in person game. I probably fuck like once a week maybe every 10 days from tinder. You just gotta figure it out man

[–]I_LOVE_CHIPS0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Apply the Brad Pitt rule.

[–]cluelessguitarist0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Tinder is a waste of time, when you meet them in real life they dont even look as half as good, better to meet them in real life

[–]Wrath_of_Trump0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

i get a decent amount of matches from girls i would bang but the couple convos i had i lost interest in immediately and i'm barely motivated to message the others. it's mostly a validation tool for sure and my lack of effort makes it a bit of a validation tool for me as well. i should probably delete it

[–]2319Skew0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yep. Avg 5 is treated like a 9. You can get laid but it's a waste. Best to set yourself above the sea of dick by hitting her up in RL.

[–]EdvardMunch0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Its fucking random and many things

[–]AuberyBitoni0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I feel the exact same way. I live in a small town too, Tinder is fucking shit here. Girls on there are boring as fuck so I ended up deleting it.

Gonna move out of the small town so I can approach more girls irl.

[–]mrpoopistan0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

In their defense, many of them aren't even actual girls. Influencing is such a fucking scam these days that I assume every insta account is garbage until proven otherwise.

[–]tripmepls0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

There’s a lot of sifting but you can definitely get action from Tinder. Get them to add you on IG and you follow suit, not vice versa.

[–]LeatherBoundWisdom0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I know guys who have great success with tinder, and I also know guys who can't get jack diddly shit from it.

Try it out, see if you're getting results. If nothing after a few weeks I'd say drop it unless your pictures improve substantially in quality (for example, you get six pack abs and can show them off).

[–]VigilantSmartbomb0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

That’s interesting with the model

Yeah cold approaching is about it

You could join other alphas and try the Luke warm approach

Talk to chicks already in alpha groups type thing

Sometimes alphas share chicks, become an alpha and let them help

[–]SavorThePill0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Well, as an actor on the platform you are feeding into the greater female validation framework being facilitated by the greedy gammas over at big tech.

Buuuuut everyone likes to have fun too, so if Tinder works for you, why not right?

Of course, I refer back to the whole female validation framework and all that...if you care about those implications and despise contributing to that, but still want to use Tinder, then it's sort of like drugs and alcohol: drugs and alcohol are fun (which everyone knows), but drugs and alcohol are also bad (which everyone knows).

[–]HurricaneHugues0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Your text game is weak. What do you message them? How big is your search radius?

[–]robbiedigital0010 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Just think,with all the chumps using tinder how you being able to approach in person sky rockets your value

[–]theredsperg0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

girls aren't dumb on there, have you ever tried to fucking type with a touch screen keyboard? fucking hell that's why you only wanna type one word replies and maybe if you're boring

[–]IXseed0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Most women use it to either kill time or get validation. Only maybe 1/4 of women use it for dating.

[–]cfbovernfl0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy


[–]alphakari0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'm in a small town though like 50k people in it.

R u retarded?

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
