  • Corrections and remarks:
    – I forgot to mention that I ran the simulation 1000 times for every scenario
    05:02: "Attractiveness is subjective". A lot of comments argued that attractiveness is NOT subjective, otherwise we wouldn't have such a high inequality in likes for different users. My response to that is that attractiveness is partially subjective. A person that I consider to be attractive might not be attractive to you and vice-versa. Therefore, attractiveness has at least some level of subjectiveness.
    05:50: There's a mistake in the formula of the right chart. It should be f(x) = 14%
    06:12: The chosen functions were power functions and NOT polynomial functions, as mentioned in the footnote

  • Dating apps are bs abd to be honest, I dated girls from online and was the worst experience ever.

    If you want to be a special guy, have confidence and don't act like you are easy to get.

    If you don't have a pair of balls and can't go out in real life to ask a women out, too bad.

    The world was different before phones got invented. Also, the mind of a guy and girl are different.

    It's very few guys who can go talk to a women and ask her out.

    Also, let's not forget that many men don't actually know if they like a girl until they go out with her.

    The problem with men is that they get fooled by pictures too much. It's more of a natural instinct.

    As a man myself, I never ever allowed a women to control me. I refused girls who came up to me and wanted to date. Not cause I'm gaay or anything, but I won't accept someone I don't have any feelings for.

    Stop being a loser man. I'm getting sad for my homies out there. We need to bring back the old times when men didn't beg women for their time.

    Fck this generation.

  • um but there isn't the same amount of men and women on these apps, there are more men on the majority of all dating apps than women. thats probably one of the big reasons why.

  • In my experience the biggest factors are race and culture. My appearance closely resembles Shemar Moore – a light skinned black male with shaved head and a beard. I am half (white) German, half (black) American. I get tons of likes in Germany, but close to zero – or visibly subpar matches while in the US. I think the reason is obvious.There is a widespread racial prejudice against blacks in the US that makes women there believe a type like me doesn't have a career or for some other reason lacks prestige to want to be seen by his side. The reason is the US's history of slavery and what followed after (worse access to education, no inherited generational wealth etc.). In Germany that never was a problem, so women seem to be more neutral (to some extent anyways – there still are white girls that would prefer to date within their own race just because they are more attracted to them, and I wouldn't blame them for being racist, because, after all, even I am more attracted wo white women even though I'm a light-skinned brown man, probably because I was raised in a white society, which Germany is – and maybe also because my own mother is white, who knows). I think women are attracted to men who signal 1 authority and 2 a career and a social standard with a decent amount of money. And black people (for historical reasons) don't stand for these characteristics. It's a stigma.

  • I mostly just had to filter out the high attitude low value women out. Also I made sure to look for a woman with a college degree.

    I'm hot and had military pictures featuring medals and that did 90% of the work

  • Most of on line dating is about woman looking for resources, attention. I would not want a woman from a dating site, WAY more likely to be damaged.

  • Very enlightening!
    I think it will improve further if added the biological perspective.

  • I hope these dating apps are banned around the world and the developers are put in jail. That is what they deserve.

  • It does, it exactly does…

    And premium doesn't work for average guys.
    Tried OKC, Tinder, Bumble.

    If you are good looking, everything will work.
    If you're average, you're f***

  • I know for a fact as a software engineer, that the tinder algorithm is compromised. If you have been a male tinder user for more than a week, you'll start to notice that all your top picks are super hot, attractive girls. But when you start doing the standard swiping, you don't see any attractive women. You'll even run out of women in your area, yet still see all these hot girls showing up on your top picks. Tinder is deliberately manipulating what you see and think are your options. I almost want to develop a free dating app that isn't corrupted by greed!

  • Lmao your conclusion is there's no solution and dudes are just fucked. I'm the only honest person on any of these sites

  • Often times, pictures don't really do justice to a person.
    Go offline, get out there and start meeting people.
    It's a great chance to just make some connections as well.

  • For all my insecure lads out there, I've been here, I've felt ugly before, I was called it all through school and first year of college even, I got into relationships and got cheated on and financially exploited by all the women I ever got with, One even lasted for 3 years and I just never knew about it all then they all left me oneday without a reason or trace. I tried these dating apps and uploaded some nice photos of myself in my band with my guitar and outings, generally nice selfies and good fashion sense and I was just blanked without a single match so gave up on dating. But now I'm with a girl who is incredibly popular and has a lot of guys who want her but she's all mine and she's the Most sweetest and affectionate girl I have ever met Whatever you're going through or how bad it's all ended for you.. Hold on because the right girl will come around for you, Until then do what I did and focus on yourself and all the goals you want to achieve, view yourself the way you want your next girl to view you… It will all come naturally in time, YOU ARE WORTH IT MY BROTHERS <3 X

  • A few years back I was backpacking together with a women, good friend of mine, for a few month. In this time I often was partying with groups of girls, as the only men in the group; And I could notice, how many guys approach and try to hook up , just on one evening. I think at one party back then, like 20-30 guys showed up and got rejected. Beautiful girls always have the problem to sort out, not too hook up.

  • Just gonna point out also the fact that there are a lot of men on the dating apps who don't even want anything serious or are out there just outright cheating. I have never used any dating apps myself nor have I dated but jesus christ the amount of profiles my girl friends show me of guys who OPENLY say that they're looking for an affair is mindboggling.

  • And being allergic to cats like me lowers the odds considerably.
