Recently I've installed Tinder. Had my first match yesterday.

Me: "I see you're a product manager in a software company. Do you get along well with programmers? :)"

No reply. Unmatches. 😶

    @irene not really. I've seen few men be successful. Of course, they bought a lot of stuff like boosts, superlikes to make it happen

    @irene I suppose. I thought of giving it a try anyway. I went out a lot lately and I sometimes check out Tinder when I stay at home. Also, I think people on Tinder aren't the same kind you'd meet when going out. I think...

    @asgs I really don't feel like paying 40€ a month for that. Are they out of their minds?
  • 2
    @irene lol. You do. But they charge 60€ an hour 😁
    Edit: they're called sexbots

    I become every day happier that I was born at a time where this was the smartest phone.

    @JackToolsNet Life must have been much simpler. No anxiety over social media and stuff.

    Well, the good side was you could be in a bar without being called by your gf or your mom 8)

    This was my smart phone as a kid:

    My dad wired it into my bedroom so I could call my parents. :-)

    You can see why I become spoilt to the idea that most things are possible with knowledge and work !

    I'm on paid Tinder, for all practical purposes, it makes no difference !

    The experience has provided me with more data, but it only goes to help prove my theory that I'm not going to get a relationship until I've got a yearly disposable income (Waits to be shot by firing squad..) of at least $3,500 USD.

    The paid experience is around $150 a year, so plumbed for a year to test it out. (It's not really possible to test it out much for free..)

    Been using it 3 months, no dates, only one conversation which ended after the woman determined I lived on the next island to her..

    OkCupid, on that too, but nearest match is 500+ miles away, so they must have a much smaller database..

    I'm on every practical large and small dating site, no relationship for last 7+ years since my disposable income shrunk.

    I estimate 4 years before it returns.

    When I will be magically attractive enough !

    Tinder at least shows me I get more interest with better pictures.

    In case anyone is wondering, what is a better picture:

    I posed, with my designer leather jacket, designer watch, designer shirt, designer jeans, designer shoes. (A mix of new and second hand items, cost $1,000 RRP $2,000)

    This got me roughly twice as many profile views as previous pictures which didn't have any designer stuff in them.

    Hasn't increased chat rate, but has increased 'like' rate.

    Hasn't increased date rate. (Had around 20 dates in the last 7 years, none of which really turned into a relationship.)

    @JackToolsNet no lock? So anyone could call any time? Hahahahaha

    Actually, it was a pulse phone, we could use it even with it locked.

    @brunofontes yes no lock. And my brain was full with phone numbers....

    I've taken this screenshot while choosing the languages I speak. Apparently there fond of C++ at OkCupid 😊

    @rutee07 thx mate! I already saw a couple of likes, but I have no access to them. Pricing is reasonable though: 10€ for 6 months. Quite a difference to 240€ ...
    Developers? That's interesting.
  • 0
    @rutee07 I do! I had a good laugh 😁
    I was mistaken with the pricing btw. It's 10$/month for 6 months.

    This rant and comments got me in tears. 😂😂

    @suprano good for you! I'm having a great time as well. Swiping people in the face is awesome 😁

    Reminds me of the first time I went to a nightclub..

    I walk up to a woman I fancy (Not a 10..) and ask her to dance.

    She laughs at me.

    Not just any ordinary laugh oh no, but a full on hearty laugh so loud and carrying that the entire nightclub comes to a standstill for about 30 seconds, and everyone, and I mean, everyone looks at me !

    Yeah I mean, what is the worst that could happen asking a stranger in person..

    Lucky for me, I'm built of strong stuff, but lets say, that did me no favours in trying to hold onto my confidence !

    Some websites do kinda let you know when people have swiped over your picture/profile.

    In one, I must be approaching half a million..

    Plenty Of Fish.

    I have noticed since I improved my picture, my likes so to speak have been going up.

    They just unmatch me so to speak once they read my profile about having no disposable income !

    Thanks.

    No dates mind you !

    I did meet a nice South African once. :-)

    Life has taught me that friends is everything, they are the folk you connect with on some level.

    Relationships, for the most part you are just like a new toaster, and as easily disposable.

    No one really cares about what a toaster thinks, or its aspirations, its fears, its loves, its hates.
