My main beef with the site is that the matches are often flakey, canceling dates at the last minute or not responding to messages.
The few Tinder dates I did go out on ended up well since it was very clear what they wanted, and there was no ambiguity regarding either of our intentions.
Overall, a fun site but don't take it too seriously.
If you want a serious relationship with a "good" girl, this is the site to join. The guys who run this site are STEM whiz kids from Harvard and MIT, and their rigorous quantitative big data approach to dating clearly shows.
The quality of women is pretty darn high (at least in NYC), and I really enjoyed the Match dates I've gone on. Although I appreciate the wonkiness of the site and extensive questionnaire to calculate % compatibility with someone, the women on this site have been a huge disappointment.
Unfortunately, too many of them are looking to get married and wanted a commitment after just a few dates. They have ranged from the hideous to the bizarre to the psychotic.
One OKC date talked openly about her hatred of her ex-boyfriend and how she could kill him and his current girlfriend if she had the chance. Created by 3 high achieving Korean-American sisters, this site brought something new to the table.
Rather than allowing you to browse an unlimited number of people, you are given just one match per day, and that person is a friend of a facebook friend.
By using facebook connection as the initial starting baseline, the site establishes credibility and comfort, which are especially important with women.
And by just giving you one match per day, one can argue that it gets rid of the distraction of other sites by forcing you to just look at one profile at a given time.
Another advantage is that unlike Match or OKC, you do not have to fill out a lengthy survey that seems to probe into every aspect of your life since birth.
If you are a single straight guy living in NYC, you would be doing yourself a great disservice by abstaining from online dating.
