How attractive are you. Maybe you're going for people out of your league.

Don't go looking for it (easier said than done).

I was in a similar situation from 2014-2016 where you feel like you're not doing anything wrong but nothing is happening and its simply the worst in the world. Best bit of advice I can give you from personal experience is just chill the **** out, girls can smell desperation a mile away so they won't be interested if that's how you're coming across. Echoing the above, maybe lower your standards when you're out, tinder is tinder, you have to catch someone's eye within a millisecond so maybe review your profile and see what can be done.

It'll happen man, trust me.

Could be that your bio/pictures are crap. Paste bio? Link pictures? We'll sort you out.

When it comes to online dating, it's pretty much about looks so make sure you have good pictures.

No offense, and I don't mean to be rude, but if you are the type of guy who is only looking for sexual intercourse and not an emotional connection, then I'm afraid that not many girls are going to be interested.

You swipe everyone and still get no matches?

Post your photos and bio on here, we'll sort you out!

If you do that you get put into a kind of low priority where you get shown to people last, or you might not even be shown to people at all because the algorithm decudes you're a bot. It's one or the other anyway.

You seem to be forgetting, algorithms don't take into consideration attractiveness or vanilla bios.

I mean one or the other happens if you swipe literally everyone right, I don't remember which.

tinder is dead now. When it came out it was used massively for hook ups. but the use has now reduced massively. Try different apps

Wait are you not getting matches at all or are you just not getting responses when you actually get a match?

Yeah I’m getting some but they never reply unless it’s a bot account trying to get me to sign up for a porn site

i'm not getting any matches at all. I used tinder as a way to get quick hook ups during university. in fact, I used to get matches a lot 1-2 years ago but now its dead for me. Best thing I recommend is go out to your local shopping centre or club and just ask a girl out if you think they look good ez pz. Just start with a complement and thats your conversation starter. Hell i've started a conversation by saying the words 'those shoes must not be comfortable' I ended up carrying her home.

I regretted that line ever since.

What's your bio? I can come across an attractive guy but his bio is absolutely the worst so I swipe left.

I could maybe give you insight into my perspective (as a girl)? I use Tinder, I barely swipe right on anyone but when I do get matches I generally don't reply if they've said something boring ("hey"), a bad pun about my name, or if they've sent a gif.

Maybe the trick to getting replies from your matches is to think of more creative opening lines, maybe ask a question (not "how are you") and keep the conversation interesting from the start.

It might sound harsh but the reality is that there is a huge amount of people on Tinder so it's easy to leave something with someone if they're not ticking off your personal preferences from the beginning.

start the conversation with a bit of humour. Sometimes works for me
