Dating site useless
The industry has completely transformed a fundamental aspect of human communication, changing how we meet new people and go looking for partners.In the US, online dating is now the second most common way for heterosexual couples to meet (behind introductions through friends). After millions of years of human evolution, and thousands of years of the development of human society, humans had settled on the idea that in-person interactions through fun, face-to-face social activities were the best way to meet new people.I've got accounts on Tinder, Bumble, OKCupid, e Harmony, POF, and On all 6 of them I've managed to swipe on every single woman within my city or the surrounding cities. Hundreds of women across 6 different sites, and not one of them has wanted to start something with me. This is where I can really feel it..Ok everyone.... Step 1: if you aren’t matching with anyone at all ever, you have to do something about your pics.Have one pic of you and an attractive hobby, a pic of you with a drink in your hand, a pic of you with a dog, a pic of you with friends, and then a standard pic of you just looking sharp and smiling.Ive constantly made and deleted profiles from Okcupid, tinder, bumble, etc. Im gonna go back to old fashioned way of asking women out and taking the outright rejections and “i have a boyfriend” excuse instead of sending a message and being put in the “read zone”. It leads to a lot of echo chamber opinions because there's a bias here.And ive followed all the rules to make an attractive or funny or “whatever else” type of profile that women find appealing. IN MY OPINION, women want face to face contact or (the really hot women) just want to promote their instagrams. People who do well at OLD and don't need advice prob aren't reading these forums in as big of numbers as the ones who do need the help or pointers.Forget 1 in 562, you could literally be talking about 1 in a million.The promise of making it easier to find your “ideal” companion by letting you add filters to hone in on specific requirements has actually had the opposite effect, diminishing your pool to the point it becomes almost impossible to find anyone!
And it gets worse the more prescriptive you are about your requirements.
Add those complications to the fact that online dating is, for many people, a thoroughly dispiriting experience, and it’s no wonder that older adults are more likely to rate it as a negative experience than any other demographic. If people are finding love through online dating sites, why does it fail so many others?
