Default Y'all use Tinder? feedback requested

I know, I know, 2014 called. I've always been late on stuff like this, just got a Snapchat at the end of last year. I was turned off from it from being at college, seemed so lame and millennial so I passed.

Anyway, just set up a profile because I'm single and the demographics in my county are wack- most women I run into the regular old ways are just uninteresting to me. There are some decently hot ones but, they are very lukewarm minds with the same interests and do the same shit. Always get disappointed when I chat up a good looking girl and realize they are just a carbon copy personality-wise of some other pop-country, Olive Garden going farm girl skank.

I'm def not expecting to find wifey or anything, just trying something new, even though I'm late af.

What say you, gentlemen? Any good Tinder stories or tips that seemed to work for you? I know there's kind of a 'Tinder code' or protocol i.e. either corny pickup lines or something obscene but I'm 29 so the hip shit is lost on me at this point.

Default Re: Y'all use Tinder? feedback requested

Just got back on Tinder after breaking up with my gf.

Got a brazilian chick coming over Friday. She's leaving in May so no pressure. Hard to converse with her but I need a rebound.

I'm 29 as well and have bombed a couple opening pick up lines. Recently, there was a girl named, "Hanri" so I said, "You're name sounds like hungry. Good thing I like to eat a lot. How's it going?" I was trying not to overthink it and just say whatever came out.

I knew it was corny, lame and borderline rude but I know some girls would laugh at that. She didn't like it. Moved on obviously. I stick to "hey girl hey" or "hows it going" 95% of the time.

Anyway, when tinder blew up I went on a few dates and met some really cool girls. Other girls were a complete bomb and the online chemistry didn't translate to real life. For someone that was still a bit socially low-IQ, it really enhanced my game.

After getting back on it, I'm less picky and have gotten some good matches with good convos with only one meeting materializing so far with potential for more when I travel. Some dont respond, others tail off, some girls just give one word responses so I just stop talking because it's too much effort.

If you're single, I would no doubt be on it but I still prefer meeting girls in real life. Tinder first dates are kept really simple as well - coffee, dessert or a walk (that can be turned into a coffee if it goes well.)

how many lay stories start with getting a coffee? none. skip that crap. take her out at night. do something fun like go dancing at a bar where you can naturally get physical with her. Women love dancing

Because you can use tinder for getting laid and/or getting into a relationship. And some girls would rather get to know you first before going any further. If coffee goes good, next date go dancing. Not a huge jump. You can take it many directions depending on the girl. That was only a suggestion.

Also, where I live, that's sorta the norm. You're more likely to get a girl to agree to the first meet with a coffee than go dancing. You can bring up that you are good at dancing in the first date and boom you've got a second.

Thanks for the solid repsonse, Hawkeye. It seems we have a few things in common.

I'm talking with this cute Latina chick, Crystal, who isn't far. Good looking face, nice tits, cury but not fat at all. More like the majority of younger Latinas who still have their metabolism but tortillas bruh, maybe like 10 lbs overweight.

I hit her with a Shaq gif and told her I wasn't actually Shaq. She bit and seems pretty cool, travels a lot, likes dancing blah blah blah

I always felt weird about online dating, guess I'm kinda old school when it comes to dating but I'm glad it seems a lot of regular cool people use it.

We'll see how this goes. There's a lot of hotties but many more fat girls, tattooed feminists types, pictures at Women's marches. I hate seeing good looking ones with 'pansexual or asexual' in their bio

I'm a feminist so you got a problem with that Swipe left!!!!!!!

Yeah, it's a mix man. There are some girls that have cute faces but a little plump. I just go for the normal looking ones with normal profiles.

Had some successes with it, mostly it is just conversations that go nowhere though.

Started using corny pickup lines more, the last one that worked was something like "Hey let's just cut to the chase. How about you come over to my place sometime and we watch porn on my 54 inch flat screen mirror." She came over that night.. we banged.. and now we've been dating for 2 months lol. Luckily we have a lot of the same interests or it could have been awkward. Meh, gotta try though.

That's what I'm saying...some other girl could call you ignorant or rude if you used that line.

That's great . I'm not really the 'creep' type but I am pretty straightforward because once I collect minimal exposition, I'm ready to try and dive in. We'll see how this approach translates to this, maybe I should just go all out from jump.

I just can't consistently hang with people who watch The Bachelor, or want to see comedies in the theaters or people who enjoy lame music
