Tinder: Swiping Self Esteem?
"Whether they're swiping left or swiping right, male users of the popular dating app Tinder appear to have lower levels of self-esteem and all users appear to have more negative perception of body image than those who don't use the app, according to research presented at the annual convention of the American Psychological Association."
Tinder Users Have Lower Self-Esteem: Study
"In future studies, the researchers plan to look at how the reasons people use Tinder-whether they're there just to see who matches with them, to hook up or to find a partner-relates to their psychological wellbeing."
How I won at Tinder
"Tinder is a new game for people with smartphones and faces. Well, it's not technically a game; it's sort of a dating app, but it behaves like a game, asks you if you want to 'keep playing' and generally appears to have pitched itself somewhere between Angry Birds and Grindr."

I'm done with women period. The online dating world completely made me lose all respect for them. I won't even talk to them at all anymore. I don't really need to anyway. I'm saving money for a sex doll and going mgtow. The great TFM is a life saver.
tinder did give me self esteem issues not so much the lack of matchs but when i did match and i message them they do not reply then i find out many women use tinder for validation not for dating i deleted tinder and a few years later i look back and think maybe these women are really the ones with the self esteem issues seeking validation online just like many take selfies and put on social media fishing for likes
The 80/20 rule is really more like the 95/5 rule now.....the top 80 percent of women only consider the top 5 percent of men.... This leaves the top 5 percent of men running though most of the women. And the bottom 95 percent of guys with not even a opening hello
It is worst fucking app ever to exist. Idiots using it for having sex with one another every weekend like sun-human animal species and other idiots encouraging this behavior. No wonder humanity will take forever to make advancements in technology and unravel the mystery of the universe given that majority of us are stuck in a mindset which keeps getting narrower
Tinder is just for female validation really. Except if you're really attractive. Typical female bios are all about requirements (6'0"+, be white etc.). Even average girls think they're above average guys.
They need research on this ? Lol. I almost know no men that are succesful on Tinder. Women get tons of matches, even if they are really ugly. Average guys have a hard time on Tinder. So it is obvious what Tinder will do. Tinder destroys an average guy's self esteem while it pushes up an ugly girl's self esteem.
Dating apps are artificial if you want to meet genuine people go out in the world don’t meet someone on an app I truly don’t think people think the same way they do online than in person it’s just different face to face but if you want love online go on a Christian site or match.com
Women are just much more selective on Tinder, so they have the power to choose based on appearance while men swipe right most of the time. That results in most men getting nothing at all while women can choose the most attractive guys.
Men, if you get no matches, that‘s not because you are ugly, it affects all men on a systemic level there
I'm single but i would never stoop so low than to join online dating. Anyway im a proper man, not a mouse. All the simps go on there and message every single woman on tbe site, they just sit there messaging all day like sad little twats.
Its so clear you aint getting anywhere. The women on there are nothing but cunts & im not talking about there genitalia, they is cunts by nature.
Decent women arent online... FACT
I wouldn't say they ruin self esteem, but they are hard work. Not least due to the fact that most girls just sit on their asses and expect men to send the first message. I have over 30 "likes" on OkCupid, yet only one girl has messaged me, and I do my fair share of initial messaging too. I don't mind sending the first message, but I just wish it were a little more balanced. Equality it seems is only good when it's convenient.
These sexist dating apps only benefit women, whereas they totally crush men psychologically. I'll probably delete every single one of these horrible apps, because there's literally no girl who ever gives me a like and even less message me back. At least, these apps show you more of the nature of women, but that also makes you dislike or hate them more as a man.
In short yes.
It can really crush your self esteem when you go months without so much as a response to the dozens of emails you send a week.
Then you have to try to be original and interesting in your message but not creepy and usually the girls profile is the same generic bullshit "im so laid back, i like to go out but prefer to be at home w netflix, blah blah"
The girls on there are only really seeking validation amd attention amd they have the whole pool to choose from in real time with no interaction needed. They can just pick who they want without ever having to shoot the others down in real life.
Good luck being an avwrage guy with that set up.
Also if she says "no sex or hookups" generally shes down for it. Basically shes used to hooking up quickly at this point hence the disclaimer
Ya I wanted to kill myself honestly after i only got one swipe on Tinder. I felt extremely ugly, and to be honest I've never recovered. Now I genuinely believe i'm an ugly person, although objectively im quite normal looking. I feel like i have to live up to such a high standard to be with the type of girls i want. Tinder has severely damaged my self esteem, sadly.
women don't get a negative body image because plain Jane's get 20 matches a day and a 50% match rate lol
meanwhile above average looking guys get 1 match a week if they're lucky by some girl that he's actually better looking than and then she ghosts him. He has a 5% match rate
They will have to tweek dating apps or dating apps are 1 foot in the grave. What happened? Well it seems after 7 years of research women got bored of super easy access to sex and the Apps are no longer exciting, like an old toy. So women now are just forming cyber lines and waiting to meet the "Best Guys" only. That and women are tired of no call backs. I'm in Thailand and girls are so tired of 1 night stands many have decided to skip dinner and are now just charging money for the one night stand.
I think online dating is going to do two things: 1. Force many people into social isolation 2. Force others to interact with people face to face more. Me honestly I prefer to go out and meet a woman. Online dating sucks and it's really superficial. Many of the same girls who would reject me online are so easy to pick up in real life
Yeah tbh I think most dudes who had some confidence lose it all once they download tinder. The problem is with filters bitches can be disguised to look like gods so even fat bitches somehow becomes 7 and 8s
I would say having to be wholly entertaining, super funny and witty during an entire conversation is the exhausting part! and even when you move on to talking on the phone with these girls.. all the ground you've covered goes out the window if, either you say one thing that doesn't vibe with them, or their real life intervenes.. it is way too much of an emotional investment for a guy.. unless you know, you're rich and photogenic. but you know.. girls have it so rough..
It 100% destroyed my confidence that's why I got rid of all dating sites and social media. I've had enough being rejected and ignored to accept that I really don't need a women. It's merely a blessing to me actually. Dating apps as we all know boost women's ego while destroying a man's confidence. I've learned to accept it because in all reality it's saving me a lot of time, money, and disappointment. So in all reality it's more of a win for me. My life, my rules, my goals, my money. I'm completely happy with that.
Dating online is for women mainly seeking attention. They upload tens of selfie photos thinking that is best way to attract men. There is big group of single mothers, obessed women and those feminist looking for " REAL MEN".Most men with brain cells will ditch it if they have not succeded. Most women will keep waiting for " PERFECT MAN " fantasy.
Tinder increases most girls' self-esteem while decrease most of guys'. Waste of time for any guy who is average looking or below. Enjoy your real life outside the boundry of your PC or Mobile and show them the best of you in and out :)
If a guy wants to boost his self-esteem the best thing he can do is stay away from American women.
Literally a female psychiatrist told me that today's women are extremely cruel to men especially the " good guys" and it drives their self esteem way down and in a some cases causes them to commit suicide.
As a semi attractive and semi smart male i think dating sites / apps are a waste of time.If you look for sex / hook-ups (hoes) they might be ok. But, dating apps/sites fucks up both women and male:1. Women get way more validation than is natural. Some 20 year old girl with good looks have probably got more validation than Marilyn Monroe back in the 60s. Completely unnatural. These women become dumb, because they dont have to do anything or have any qualities. They can play guys all the way they want because there are 100 guys in line.2. I dont think women with a good looks and low self esteem benefits in any way by getting approval online. She is ok to not work on her character as long as validation is offered.3. For males, there is a quite a lot competition. I dont know the ratio but i would think registered women vs man can be something like 1:4. In real life there is not so much competition for single girls, because so few guys approach. 4. You make conclusions based on a picture not knowing the human at all. It´s an easy way to be a sexist5. People online are more rude than in real lifeI myself am on a semen retention right know. One of the best things i ever done. I dont lust women anymore and i dont think about sex that much. Imagine how much better youre relationships can be with women if you come from this place..
Speak to Me does not employ swiping, texting, or emojis. If someone is interested in someone, he/she records a "Voicenote" and sends it to them. He/she cannot send another Voicenote to that person until he/she replies with a Voicenote of their own. This reciprocation feature protects users from further unwanted voicenotes. Speak to Me is available on the App Store for free and will be coming to Android shortly.
Though the app needs improvement, we think that it can shake up the online dating market which is saturated with endless, dismissive swiping and emotionless text-based communication.
If anyone has any questions just send me a message!

For me, its only motivation to eat healthy and hit the gym to get abs. I swipe for 8,9, and 10s so I gotta be a 10 to get them lol. In the long run it will lead me to a happier lifestyle. Where things tear people down, I use to build myself up.
Having a good body wont make you a 10... Girls usually prefer a pretty face than a pretty body, i hit the gym for some years, but i cant change my face, even tho i get on dates rarely, i get nothing compared to 90% of my friends, thats the true and ugly guys like me have to deal with it.
I go to the gym but I'm a pre med major in college and I don't have the time to sit down and take pics at perfect angles. With the stress in my life I have a good body around 16% body fat but there are no abs.
I see social media and online dating as an ego boots for women and a reality check for men. Women will never get their self esteem affected by social media or online dating but men will get affected by it because women have no qualms about ignoring and insulting men they find unattractive.
Personally, my luck didn't improve until I got rid of Instagram, Snapchat, and all the other profile based social media almost a year ago in January of 2016 (next month makes a year). I stopped that, went practically into monk mode and just really started questioning everything, learning about psychology and self-improvement. Really worked on my self-esteem and social skills.
Not just that but also the NoFap got my mind away from being wired to think non-stop about sex and I eventually got more caught up in my own goals and stopped putting women on pedestals and really started to feel better about my own worth and see them as my equals and be a bit more judging in whether I want such a girl or not as opposed to being all desperate like I was a year ago. My conversational skills improved a lot and I rarely ever use my phone anymore unless it's as a tool. I really kind of judge people by it now and pay close attention to all their mannerisms and dependence on their phones. It's like the adults comfort object (the object you'd give to a child to make them feel comfortable, like a teddy bear or blanket).
Basically, improve yourself, your value, and know it and own it. Have your own goals in life and don't seek your happiness in others and get rid of the delusions Hollywood has given you.
Yes! These damn dating apps and females PERIOD ruin men, great men. Something is SEVERELY WRONG with females these days and it's just not going to change because they won't change. I'm so very alone. I've tried everything there is and nothing works. Females just want dumb ass choices. Smmfh it's like its genetic smfh white or asian or the other race females that are attractive are shallow as hell, ignorant, dumb, assholes, racist, stuck up, jerks, and bitches ..period. :"""( They don’t get it.. and never will because they want stupid. They destroy truly rare great REAL men from existing and the complain there are no real great men. And other race females ARE racist shallow..
Same here. But then people think it’s funny. And females absolutely do nothing but ignore and call you “crazy”.. when its FEMALES that are the reason. I’m wanting suicide more and more.. and people ignore, females ignore, send bullshit Suicide hotline.. instead of females just doing what I ask or try, even in person! And I looked and was a former model, had the body of a superhero, females LITERALLY MADE ME NOT EXIST anymore and I don’t now. Females really just don’t care that they are assholes and bitches especially white or Asian or other race slim attractive beautiful females. Females like pissing real men off and killing real men. And I have literally NO ONE. Haven’t had sex in almost 3 years. Never in my lifetime had sex I actually truly wanted. Because white girls or asian or attractive slim beautiful females are ASSHOLES AND RACIST AND BITCHES AND STUCK UP.
Invisible, SO ALONE , Hated, Never Even Noticed
I totally feel you. I've also tried everything. A study has revealed that these bitches rated over 80℅ of men on okcupid as below-average looking. Their ratings of men in other apps were similarly disgusting. So I as a decent looking guy, among most other men, can completely give up trying to find a partner through these apps. But I seemingly have to give up women in general. I'm also already, but in fact ONLY 26 years old, and I already have to accept the truth that I will never get anywhere near a woman intimately. I hope I'll die soon.
Im so sick of you wack job people in this world.. females just don’t like the truth, nor do females care or are they CAPABLE of humility or change. Attractive slim petite white or asian or other race females (that aren’t ghetto, or with kids) are all assholes.. period. They ignore men that they ruin
Everybody and their mothers know women are more picky than men by far. No amount of political correct comments can dispute that. But this comment is for women. Even an average looking woman can get plenty of men. But how good looking you REALLY are, is how many men what to marry you, or have long term relationships. At my job, I see sooo many women walking around everyday, ugly as hell, with their nose in the air, like there hot. But the only thing they really have is money. But it's men's fault, not women's, for being so cheap and easy. Guys, we have got to stop giving ourselves away for free. No one appreciates free crap. You act cheap, you'll get treated cheap.
because some women can be very shallow, narcissitic, non caring, attention seeking etc.
I am sure you can figure out why i say this.
But that is mainly why........these types of women tend to hurt men a lot more by their actions and aura they radiate........they take and leave the man in disappointment and despair.
Much like a guy version of a player is how some women are
So whats the current popular dating apps that work these days (i.e not full of hundreds of fake female accounts etc.)? I dated a few women from "Bolt" back in the early 2000's which was kind of like an early myspace - yeah im getting old now :(
KILL ME! PLEASE IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT IS MERCIFUL, KILL ME! that's what my self esteem has to say about dating. because dying alone has become my inevitable fate and I'm tired of the pain it's causing so please...KILL ME!
as a chick with a dick, i can confirm online dating is worse as a guy... i lived both worlds. but perhaps given my nature, im not the best example of the typical man or woman. all i know is when i stopped pretending to be a boy and made a new female profile i suddenly got the of attention from the kind of people i was looking for (and a lot of people i would rather not have lol).
"We found that being actively involved with Tinder, regardless of the user's gender, was associated with body dissatisfaction, body shame, body monitoring, internalization of societal expectations of beauty, comparing oneself physically to others, and reliance on media for information on appearance and attractiveness," co-author Jessica Strübel, Ph.D. said in a press release.
I was dating a girl and I compared our tinders. Every guy she swiped right on yielded a match. Most girls I swiped right on yielded nothing. Im a doctor and I'd say Im as good looking or better looking than her. A woman's self confidence is only boosted by dating apps while men shrink in stature. Thats why I gave them up.
I'm going to go with yes, Tinder gives self esteem issues. If you're not Chris Helmsworth you're not getting a swipe from anyone. Trust me, anyone, I'm not that picky. I find in the actually pretty short time I've been using it my body consciousness has gone way up and my confidence has fallen dramatically. The only thing I'm confident of now is I'm going to die alone. Thanks Tinder!
Tinder is clearly responsible for lowering some men's self-esteem; especially once they talk to an attractive male friend Tinder user or put up a picture of a male model and watch the likes come in like an avalanche. Only the top 10-5% of attractive male photos get lots of right swipes. The difference between a male picture that is in the 80th percentile (more attractive than 80% of photos) is only marginally better than the male picture that is only in the 20th percentile. Both are basically the same compared to the 95th percentile male photo. 80th percentile male picture has a hard time getting any likes from 70th-ish percentile female pictures and above. Generally men find 70th percentile female photos and above to be attractive enough for them, but generally women only find 90th percentile male photos and above to be attractive enough. The lesson here for men trying to meet lots of attractive (70th percentile female pictures and above) women is try to make yourself look like a male model or don't use tinder. Other options are approaching random women or having a big social influence. The only EASY way to get the attention of lots of women is to look like a model. Make sure you're fit, muscular, toned, ripped in the abs, well dressed, confident, have nice hair and have a bit of scruffy facial hair if you can. You can rate your photo's attractiveness at photofeeler.com.

KAC3 start running and lifting, chase your passions, learn to love yourself. I was married to a beautiful women but ultimately she didn’t care about my needs. You will never be loved by a women the way you want to be. They are biologically incapable.
so many times have I read profiles that say if you pm me make sure to mention something on my profile so I know you read it. or all guys want is one thing blah blah blah blah. I've tried being that nice guy they say they want on their profile but in the end I get no response. maybe it's because my looks or the fact that I need to pay money to be hot listed so people fine me. I've also tried playing the ass hole loser that women say they don't want on their profile and the outcome is mostly the same. if you ask me I think these dating sites are rigged to a woman's favor. no I don't want to pay 5 dollars a month to pm someone. no I don't want your website bots to pm me telling me to pay for someone's Webcam time. or pay to read my texts.

Who the fuck are you? I don't take back my statement, why the fuck do men think they should get laid? It's not like fat chicks are out here in the comment section complaining why studs aren't boning them lol.
This is a unique real vampire website for vampires as well as the curious. It has valuable information for any real vampire and is based on scientific evidence. It also leads to other good websites for real vampires.
This is why I "think" Im a real vampire They have no desire to use us as lab rats or slaves. Before reading any farther on this site, This website is not made for poser vamps, close-minded people, or those who think that they are, or claim to be a vampire because they think the spirit of a vampire entered them at some time making them a vampire. We call these people posers, which they are; they are confused lost children. This site is not here for them in any way! It is for real vampires, curious people, and open-minded skeptics. The best compliment that you can give to this site, is telling all of your friends about it.
Real vampires are not pure fiction.
The Headache Paradox: It is scientifically impossible to have a headache, seeing that there are no pain receptors in the brain. Yet we continue to search for answers to what causes a headache, because we all know that headaches do exist.
Between a combination of the fact that our brains are roughly nothing more than a highly advanced mass of nerves, and that every function is controlled by signals that our brain sends through our nerves to the rest of our bodies, I think that if we could somehow make our nerves send stronger, more efficient signals at a quicker speed it would have a lot of different results. Including heightened sense (both physical and psychic) moving quicker both running and walking along with arm movement etc. The brain being just nerves would obviously also be effected, resulting in quicker more efficient thinking, which naturally would make us smarter, more observant, and have much sharper reflexes.
Some say that is an overly simplified form of how the brain functions, which it is. To them I say make the axons 12-15% wider, resulting in signals being sent much more quickly through the brain. Allowing neurons to create more connections without loss of speed, and the 10,000+ miles of blood vessels in the brain doubling as an additional cooling system for the brain. I could write a book on the cascade of effects that alone causes for people when they are changed in to a real vampire, however for now I will leave it in this simplified form.
