Whenever I match with some one on Tinder, they usually don't speak to me. When I actually message them, they rarely reply (there are some exceptions) and the other guy hardly ever starts the conversation.

However, on other dating apps like Grindr, POF and Badoo, people talk to me and start conversations.

What is it about Tinder that makes people not want to talk?

Does anyone else find this?

Oh, I was missing random commonsense style threads on the Lounge and you have provided one! cheer.gif

Not sure the answer to why people don't talk as much there apparently, maybe because there is less to talk about as there are smaller biographies about people maybe so you don't know about their hobbies/interests?

I don't like Tinder anyway because it is just based on looks basically, which is rather shallow.

On Plenty Of Fish you can have proper conversations and find people who actually want to date and have relationships

But why would you swipe someone right who you don't find physically attractive? Physical attraction to somebody is pretty important laugh.gif

No different to meeting someone IRL, why waste time chatting to somone if you don't want feel attracted to them or want to climb them like a tree?

I think he is into personality and the person as a whole, rather than just their looks.

Absolutely not, I do this too. If someone comes across as shallow, or as someone I don't think I'd be compatible with, I swipe them left even if they are physically attractive.

I do that also, if the profile is completely blank then I usually swipe left.

I forget to reply a lot.

My other problem is, my Tinder connection to Facebook keeps disconnecting, so although I don't lost my matches and conversations, it marks everything as read and it is just hard to follow.

See I wonder this too and I have had some conversations on Tinder but most of the times you match up nothing happens or you match up and they unmatch before you have a chance to talk, also it helps I hate talking first as I never know what to say and worried they will be turned off laugh.gif

I know some people who literally swipe EVERYONE right to see who they match with, and then they unmatch with those they don't wanna talk to. Rude!

So since making this thread a couple of guys have actually started conversations with me on there laugh.gif

However oh my gosh, this one guy I've been chatting to the most, I thought he was normal but he just asked me if I like being tickled, I think he might be one of those people with a weird tickle fetish, we haven't even met yet, why else would he ask this? ughhh

Now he has just texted back and said he is into it ughhhh
