DISCLAIMER: This guide is for guys and ugly girls. Tinder on!
PROBLEM: Users’ profile was getting plenty of matches day 1 and then, almost instantly, practically nothing.
“I got several (matches) the first day, then almost nothing (literally) for 2 months even though i resorted to swiping right on every girl. Changed my profile pic last week and now im getting 3-4 a day. Basically, i have no idea what girls want and its been a roller coaster ride for my ego. “ -Reddit Comment.
Here’s something most people don’t realize about Tinder: It wants to make a good first impression with it’s users. So, when somebody first signs up that person’s pics will be placed at the front of the line for their designated area. This means that use has a better chance at grabbing a match and starting a conversation with them right off the bat. Therefore, the first day a person signs up with Tinder is usually the best chance that person has to get plenty of matches.
SOLUTION: Delete the account and reinstall everything OR make a new account. Just deleting the app won’t work because Tinder saves users’ account information.
PROBLEM: Sending messages back and forth to matches and then communication suddenly stops.
“Not sure how the hell someone 75 miles away ended up as a match.” -Tinder Message Board
“Matched with a girl who was interesting and interested enough for me to quit messaging other matches.” -Reddit Comment
If the user hasn’t been unmatched and the matchee is still listed then there are only 2 possible reasons for the messaging to stop as listed above from real users…
Tinder is still somewhat of a new app, and that, unfortunately means it is glitchy as all fuck. The GPS location feature on it is shitty and makes mistakes. Sometimes it takes people a while to realize that the person they have been messaging lives a lot farther away than they assumed from their search distance setting. When that happens it can be a quick good-bye without even a good-bye message.
The other reason should be a bit more obvious. There are plenty of people on Tinder so an instant end to messaging an old match…is an instant beginning to messaging a new match. Multi-messaging may happen but soon enough users hone in on who they really like and they get the bulk (if not all) of the messages.
SOLUTION: Like most computer software probems, re-installing does wonders. Wipe Tinder off your phone completely and reinstall it. You shouldn’t lose any existing matches so don’t worry.
PROBLEM: No matches.
“What the fuck!?! I have been on this fucking app for almost 4 months and I can’t get a single fucking match!!!” -Personal Blog of an Angry Tinder User.
Tinder puts one quality above ever other a person has: Their looks. The written bio is something that is hidden and most people don’t even bother to check it. Looking good is what this app is all about.
SOLUTION: A picture in the right moment, right light, right lens type, etc. can literally change a person’s appearance. If a user doesn’t know how to take a good pic of themself then it’s best hire a professional photographer that knows how to make people look good. If a person is not attractive by today’s standards there is always “trick photography” that will add a significant amount of attractiveness.
PROBLEM: Constantly getting the “There’s no one new around you.” message.
“Where is everybody?” -Random Tinder Users Everywhere
SOLUTION: Change your search distance regularly. For example if you have it set to 10 miles change it to 11 and then 9 after you exhausted any new searches. Tinder is funny like this and with regular adjustments to the search distance bar you can “unlock” a lot of hidden people that you might never have seen. Call it a bug but regular adjustments will ensure you get maximum visibility.
