I'm not a big fan of the swiping and matching apps, because you're very dependent on their algorithm which is designed to encourage you to pay for more than the free membership. My experience is that I get few or no matches, except when I get a bunch in a row or passively. Which is frustrating, because I can only focus on 1-2 conversations at a time, and end up having to let the rest go. Feast or famine. It makes sense from a business standpoint, to give you some success but also enough boredom to get you to pay for bonus features.

So I was thinking that maybe people dont have time to check during the day and wait until they get home or this is me creating an excuse for why I can't get a match during the day lol
What kind of pics are you using that you feel would go over better at night? Lol

20-40 likes, or matches?

ETA: Just to see if this was 'crazy thinking' I typed "Is Tinder a hookup App" into google just now, and I'm not alone in that impression. I'm just explaining why I didn't automatically choose it.

T.mobile just offered me a Tinder Gold Package for $1 so I am guessing it's not a hookup site. I think unless T mobile is encouraging it's customers to get their freak on lol

Likes/swipes. I have Tinder Gold, so I see who likes me without swiping. Swiping is too time-consuming to be bothered with.

If you’re a woman, the likes or ‘want to meet’ may be a product of the guys who blindly swipe every profile. I recently checked my last profile on an app where my current headline is: “out of order” and I have 1400 meet me’s. It won’t be happening, and I’m sure they’ll never know anyway.

Guess I'm too cheap for tinder lol. I agree, it's a great business model for them.
