At least you’ve got shots and a night’s worth of fun secured with the latter. It gives you a chance to be yourself with someone without worrying about them judging you there and then.

That adds up to around 12 hours a week, all in hopes of scoring a date that lasts approx. Modern dating’s not only exhausting – It’s a part-time job!

Guys face 3 major hurdles when it comes to meeting women online: Problem #1: Most dating sites and apps have more men than women, which means the most attractive women get bombarded with messages. Problem #2: Matching algorithms don’t work because they typically rely on information that’s easily quantified online, such as behavioral traits and simple beliefs.

Basically, if your photo doesn’t prove to be a success, you may as well have filled your bio with the same flirty stuff as everyone else. While of course, there have been some Tinder successes – even my friend found love through the app, and has been in a relationship with the guy for nearly three years – this isn’t what happens for the majority of people.

We’ve heard loads of stories of how people have looked lovely on Tinder, but really weren’t their date’s cup of tea in person.

While attraction is most definitely necessary, it isn’t the be-all and end-all.

I mean, how many of us have eventually fallen for people who were beforehand totally off our radars simply because it took us a while to realise just how wonderful they are?You probably spend countless hours every week clicking through profiles and messaging attractive women on dating sites and apps.You get a response every now and again, but rarely from anyone you actually want to date.Granted, the app is the perfect place for a hookup.It’s judged on appearance, and that’s all you really want from a one-night stand.And ultimately, you can share things that perhaps in real-life, you’d be too afraid to unless you knew you were really going somewhere with them. And sadly, it may take your match a while to realise you’re not for them.
