a cave outside of Whoville.
I used Tinder ALL THE TIME when I was single.
I put “Gaf Member” in my profile and instantly got all the babes because of our reputation for having 18” dicks.
Mine is 19” in case you were wondering.
I just tell girls I'm getting a Microsoft Xbox Series X and they teraflop out them tiddies. After we're done fucking and we're laying in bed smoking cigarettes, we laugh about anyone getting a PS5.

a) had gf since before it became a thing
b) the memes about tinder say all but chads get .0001% match rates. not sure my fragile ego could handle this

Have used it in the past but haven’t for a while. Makes dating/hooking up ridiculously easy.

Never had the chance due to being married. Probably the first thing id try if I'm ever single again.

Never used it, it was a generation or two after me I think that it became a thing.

I downloaded it right before all the corona stuff hit. In my age group a lot of the women have kids. No one writes anything in their profiles and a lot of people are just advertising their instagram accounts. I got a few matches but didn't follow up since everything is closed now around here. Probably better just to meet people in real life (after corona).

Never. I was married by the time Tinder came around. Hell, back in 08 I think online dating in general had more of a stigma around it. I've toyed with the idea of going on Tinder just to see what's out there, but I haven't bothered. At this point if I was going to cheat it would be with an escort most likely.

Never used Tinder.

I used Match and met my current GF. Was like finding a golden needle in a hay stack.

Match was basically divorced/separated women looking to fuck.
Aka: "I've been married for 10 years and I wanna try new dick. I'm burnt out on 10min missionary and wanna try the dirty stuff I see in porno!"
Met some women on a 'break' who said they were divorced.

If your like 35, ok looking and have 'ok's money you can go on Match and be swimming in MILFS who dont want a relationship and are hyper sexual looking to make up for lost time and play out some fantasy they seen on Pornhub.

I missed the boat on it. When I was younger I had to goto a bar or club and talk with Women. It was a different time.

Never used a dating site to be honest.

But that's because I'm seriously old fashioned. I'm more attracted to someone when I get to know them in real life.

As a 45 year old, my impression is more like:
  • women older than 40 don't look sexually attractive anymore with a few exceptions. Usually on the search for someone to spend the rest of their days with, but often times just got out of a long time relationship/divorce and you will probably have to deal with some psychological problems.
  • after 45, it's almost dire, look wise. There are very very few exceptions. Asians are usually a good pick, since they seem to age more gracefully. Usually women in this age group are quite relaxed, though.
  • women in their 30ies ALWAYS look for the future dad of their unborn child. If you are having sex with them really take care your condom doesn't slip or crack. I had one time a girl trying to get my dick into her after sex when I was already a bit asleep, without condom. Well, she didn't know I had a successful vasectomy half a year before.. :D Still stopped her, cause STDs. Always take care yourself about condom disposal. Flush it down the toilet yourself.
  • women in their 20ies look for a sugar daddy or are weirdo (emo, BDSM fetish, super fat) chicks.

Anyway, it's still a good way to meet women, and have some fun without having to hang out in bars and getting drunk all the time.
I agree with your observations. I think it is just that we are wired to make relationships when we are young. We all get old and ugly, but we are supposed to have made all our kids and had all our really hot fucking by then. We can then age gracefully and enjoy golf, crocheting, and grandchildren.

Fun fact: Back in 2003 ( i remember like it was yesterday), me and another friend were blazing as usual and I shit you not, we were sitting on the car hood one night and said to him, man I wish there was a website where you can just hookup for fucking. Not these broken marriage dating websites that looked so formal. But we were straight out of high school, not a skill in our pocket and ye we brainstormed a lot about it for a few days. Even today I feel like i got some good ideas but I cant code, design or have a ton of cash to market this. Next thing you know a decade later we got apps for fucking :messenger_tears_of_joy:

You are right, but man, what a depressing thought.

Why man? It's natural to have different phases of life... As an example, I remember that wonderful period when I first was with my wife. That excitement, not being able to keep our hands off each other, going at it all the time. Now we have been married 16 years, together for over 20. Of course it is not like that anymore. But really, who would want it to be? Our sex life is still amazing, but of course different. We are both more skilled and know each other so well, but just busier and less energetic after both having difficult careers. (lawyer and doctor). We go at it once a week on average and that is good for me. I am lucky in that she is accommodating when she is not really that into it

Would I trade her for a Hot, rarin' to go 19 year old? Of course no. Maybe that would be a novelty for a week or something, but the reality is I could not give her what she wants and neither could she for me. Some guys I think try to pursue that to make themselves feel young. Maybe it works I don't know.

Of course the health decline in aging is a bummer, but we want to do different things. Slow down, do some traveling, talk, spend time with family. Essentially grow old together and end up in those matching plots. I wonder dude, if you are religious at all? That would definitely change the way we each look at this...? I see it as still moving towards something after death that is even better. If you are not, you might see it is a depressing finality, something that is gone forever...?

Dude, you are acting like that millionaire seeing the poor people and saying "why don't they just get rich?" ...
Cool, that you were lucky enough to find your one, but it's not like that for everybody..

I hear what you are saying. But people are not talking about trying to "find their one." They are talking about just meaningless fucking. At best a temporary solution to a problem that runs much deeper.

I can't imagine that very many people who just meet up and fuck on a first "date" end up being together long after that....? Even a guy who is really successful at getting girls, with an app or without....basically what he is doing is just delaying the desire to settle down with someone and procreate. And though he does not realize it he is wasting a part of his best years on something that is fools gold.

(And let me be clear, I am talking about people who have just empty sex with a bunch of randos. I am not talking about dating different people or being in different relationships. Those people are growing up and trying to do the right thing in a society that is broken, looking for someone. I get that.)

That's an extremely conservative view of things, which I don't share.
If it worked out for you, great.
I know a lot of conservative people that tried it that way, and it didn't work out.
You were just lucky.
And to be honest, you don't even know if your wife won't leave you next day/week/year.

I have had relationships for over 7 years, 5 years, a couple of times for 2 and 3 years. Every single time I thought I found the one, and wanted to settle down. With two of those I have kids.

Life is more complicated than what you describe.

I used it for about 15 minutes after my divorce. Was horrified of what I found there. I had success on bumble though. Both with hookups and legit dating. Met my fiancée on Hinge almost two years ago.

I never used Tinder, but I did use other apps like tinder, that were more common in my Country a few years ago when I was single.

Look at all of these liars saying they never used it. I used it before, but never went through with meeting anyone from it. I learned a lot more about the pool of women out there:
- Anyone halfway decent has 100 guys like you trying for it too. You better be 6 foot+, ripped, with tattoos, a beard, and a piece of shit.
- Too many single moms. They want you to share in their vision of how much in love they were at age 20 and carry on that legacy.
- Really cool and normal, but ugly and/or fat

I've really grown tired of trying to chase down women to impress them. In many instances, it's pathetic and not worth it. We buy them stuff, complement their life, do what they want to do because we are suckers for sex. Luckily, I haven't needed to turn to apps like Tinder as I generally have no problem meeting girls otherwise.

I've been with my lady since the end of 2003, so I was out of that demographic before it even started.
