The Dark Side of Online Dating – Why Dating Apps Don’t Work For Most Men
Dating apps like Tinder, Bumble, and OkCupid have millions of users in America alone.
There is an abundance of women you can meet online.
However, online dating has a severe problem for men, competition.
In 2016, 67.8% of Tinder users were male, whereas only about 32% were female.
Even worse, women on Tinder get swiped right an average of 46% of the time, but men only get swept right by women 14% of the time.
The economics of online dating is very much in favor of women.
Pretty much any girl can get a limitless supply of matches on Tinder, whereas the average guy gets maybe one per day, if that.
A particularly beautiful woman on a dating app will receive dozens of messages every single day.
That said, very few men are good at online dating.
Most guys use lazy pictures taken on their smartphone selfie camera and send messages that are either boring or creepy.
You can stand out from the majority of guys on dating apps by getting some professional photos taken and learning how to message women in a way that intrigues them.
You could meet a new girl every single day using dating apps. However, it’s rare to meet so-called nines and 10s.
From dating apps, there’s just too much competition for the most attractive women.
You can use online dating to get dates with fairly cute girls consistently, but online dating isn’t a good option if you want stunning women.
Overall, dating apps can be great for getting some dating experience, especially if you are struggling to approach women in person. Dating apps can help you get comfortable putting yourself out there without facing approach anxiety head-on.
However, if you rely too much on online dating, it can become a crutch.
If you start going on dates with girls you met online, but you can’t approach a girl in person, you may become overly dependent on dating apps.
And if your long-term dating goal is to date the most physically attractive women, you shouldn’t use dating apps as your exclusive method for meeting women.
Meeting girls online can help get the ball rolling, and it can help build some confidence in yourself if you put effort into it.
However, while you’re doing that, you should simultaneously work on your ability to approach and attract women in person because that’s where you’re going to meet the most beautiful women.
