The Great Tinder Experiment and What I Learned

The Great Tinder Experiment and What I Learned

I don't usually write a lot of myTakes... but NOT writing one about this experiment I did would be completely stupid.

About Me (physically):

I am 25

I am Black

I am 6 feet

I dress very well

No tattoos

Goatee

Hair is cut short

I am on the slim side, but I have a toned and hard body

When I am out in public, people often tell me that I look like a model. Hell... I have even been approached by a few modeling agencies in the past.

My Results On Tinder:

Even though people note how handsome and good looking I am, my results on Tinder are okay. Since I am black, I typically appeal to black women on Tinder and rarely get any women of other backgrounds.

For me to even match with the girls I want to match with, I have to "Super Like" them and they will like me back. However... they won't reply to me at all or it takes them a long time to get back to me.

It usually takes me about a week to a week and a half to rack up 100-200 matches on Tinder, and the strategy I use on Tinder is to match every girl and then weed out the ones I don't want. At the end of this ordeal... I typically have 3 dates lined up, but they never go anywhere or the girl stops replying after the first date... or she takes forever to reply in general.

This has been my success on Tinder. Every time I delete Tinder and restart the entire process, the number of matches I get decline. For example, I was only able to rack up 30 matches in a one week period, which is terrible for me.

The Experiment

I was getting disappointed with Tinder, and I often wondered what it would be like to be someone else on Tinder or "better looking". Even though my pictures reflect the best version of me, and although people often comment on me looking like a model, this wasn't getting me results on Tinder.

Women seem to have this "group think" mentality. For example, when I was in high school... well a year after high school... when one girl got pregnant, it seems like everybody was getting pregnant. When one girl started wearing Uggs, all girls started wearing Uggs. When one girl got a dog, all girls started getting dogs. This is fucked up logic, and this doesn't account for every woman out there, but this is something I have noticed in my life.

After hearing women talk over the past year... I noticed that they had a commonality in the type of men they liked:

-White

-Tattooed

-Beard

-Man Bun

I always hear women talking about that type of man. So, I thought to myself... I wonder what would happen if I create a fake profile of a man with those credentials. So... I did.

The Experiment Profile

I made another Tinder account and found a guy that fit the description (white, tatted, bearded and man bun) and I used three of his pictures on this new profile. I also kept the same bio I had from my previous, real profile and my same name.

The Results

I right swiped my way through every profile that I came across. In a matter of minutes, I got matches, after matches, after matches, after matches. Within 5 minutes, I was talking to 10 different women at the same time.

The funny thing is that the women I matched with on my original profile (that I had to "Super Like" to match with)... matched with this fake profile... and I didn't have to "Super Like" them! The first line I used to talk to all women was, "you're sexy"... and women would respond rather well to that. Basically... here is the rundown:

-Basically all the girls I matched with were down to fuck and wanted to be fucked by me. They basically begged me to fuck them.

-When I told the girls that I wanted to have a threesome, a lot of them were open to having a threesome with me. I told them I wanted a FFM (look it up), and they were okay with that and just wanted to be fucked by me.

-The girls that I matched with on my original profile, that took forever to reply, replied very quickly to this profile. As soon as I sent them messages, they instantly replied... and they also wanted to be fucked by this guy on this experimental profile.

-They didn't care about my bio at all and didn't even look at it. All they saw was the fact that I was white, tattooed, bearded and had a man bun and they loved me!

-For some reason, I matched with a lot of black women... like really, really gorgeous black women and they also wanted to fuck me.

-On my real Tinder profile, I always had to talk to the girls first... however, a lot of girls were instantly introducing themselves to me on this experimental profile.

-I got away with a lot more. For example, as soon as I opened up about sex or said something sexual, instead of unmatching me or getting pissy with me (as they would do on my original profile)... they welcomed it or they brushed it aside and continued to talk to me.

-In short... if I was really this guy, I would basically be having sex everyday this month with a bunch of different women... and a lot of threesomes XD!

What I Learned From This

I deleted the account, obviously... but here is what I learned:

1. Women put a lot of emphasis on bio, but they don't really care about your bio. If you look sexy, they will line up to fuck you.

2. Again... I was shocked by how many (basically every woman I encountered) that wanted to fuck.

3. Looks do matter on Tinder... and if you are a white guy with tattoos, a beard and a man bun... women will like you more... especially black women.

  • Interesting. I doubt "and if you are a white guy with tattoos, a beard and a man bun... women will like you more... especially black women" is true though. Think about this. There are certain beauty trends that tend to be more desired with women too I bet. I'm not sure exactly what these are right now, but not all girls with are thin with long hair, for example, are gorgeous or even attractive to the majority. Certain ones are though. I bet they just found something about him attractive individually. I agree that looks matter and that women tend to like white guys, but definitely not all white guys with, facial hair, tattoos and a man whatever that is.

  • Well, considering tinder is a hook up app... i completely understand that... it's about sex appeal and nothing else...
    Sad but true

  • The conclusion is... race matters - a LOT! If you're non-white, you're pretty much clutching on to straws to get a date.

    • You have no idea bro, I totally agree, being Hispanic, I always here Latinas talk about family and loving their men but damn, they won't give me the time of day and will find other races of men, as a Hispanic guy, I'm too short or my skin is dark tan, they prefer light tan to white or black, the hatred is really and white women along with black women won't even look at me either

    • @Jorge567 I'm shocked. I ALWAYS hear women say they love white men or Hispanic men.

    • Not this short Hispanic man, the Hispanic men that women like are certainly not short, or look like me, you know lol.

    • Show All
  • It might depend a lot on where you are? I thought I'd share my experience as a black woman, if it's useful. I live in San Francisco, which is a pretty thoroughly diverse place. I myself am open to dating any race, and that seems to be the mentality of the many young millennials that populate SF. The guys that I matched with were incredibly diverse as well - black, white, latino... even Asian (now -that- surprised me).

    You also have to take into account that you swiped right on everyone you encountered while catfishing. I assume you were more selective while being yourself, and swiping right on everyone you see will get you more results no matter what. But it's true - because white people are still the standard of beauty, more people will gravitate towards them. Even POC. Googling "most beautiful women" or "most handsome men" affirms this.

    I don't really care for manbuns, though. I think they're just trendy right now, it didn't seem like anyone cared for that in the 2000s.

  • I mean of course, looks matter, and the "in" look will always be more popular. I'm sure the woman you were actually interested in meeting had a certain look as well. I doubt you went for the "average" woman.

    But if you are getting 100-200 matches in a week, then you are doing good man. I think you are too in your head. Ok... so those types of guys get more matches... good for them. How does that help you at all?

  • Don't judge all women by how you got treated on Tinder. I have never used that site but I understand it is just a "let's-meet-up-and-fuck" site, so wouldn't you expect the women to be a bit shallow?

  • what, exactly, is a 'man bun'?

    • This is the "new" "ideal" man women are after:

      www.hollywoodofficial.com/.../...-and-bun-2014.jpg

      Man bun is the hairstyle...

    • you have to be kidding? So basically a freak... gotcha

    • The others I can get the appeal but a guy having longer hair than me would be weird.

  • Good work man. Believe it or not, in Ca I think it might actually be the opposite. I think black guys have the edge here.

  • Very interesting experiment. Not too shocked by the women just wanting to fuck thing, I mean, it's Tinder. If you are on that website for anything else, good luck.

    • True but I actually found my true love on tinder we've been happily together for a year and will probably stay together.

    • @Thisisstephypotter Well, congrats. You are the 1% lol

  • Well i had similar results u talk about as a 6'2 white małe with blue eyes and few days trimmed beard
    The rest u can see on photo basically with my current girlfriend
    But before i met her i had like 20 matches in the first day
    I did not add much to bio
    Just my height and that im an active worker i hate beer and i smoke very rarely i almost never drink i like swimming
    The ammount of girls I had date planned was overwhelming the same day 2 girls
    For The next 4 days or 5
    I was 23 that time, most girls were between 18 to 28 , even had one hot 34 MILF
    People that keep saying looks dont matter they are just lying its a huge LIE

  • After a month of consistent liking and super liking, I have literally one match to show for it and it was a misswipe so...

  • AH! and that's why i have to download this fucking tinder bs

  • GREAT TAKE.

    Interesting do you think that women make false assumptions about preselection and who is good at sex based on bad behaviour (ie. the less sweet people must be good at sex)?

    I wrote a response question to this take, be great to hear your views on it? www.girlsaskguys.com/.../q2112236-do-the-follow-things-see-each-one-indicate-preselection-result-in
