People without self respect do.

So that you don't have to pay for the actual dinner. genius.
A dinner presupposes I get any dates
So you pay to swipe on your screen. Even more genius.
Sometimes my genius, it surprises me
I would be surprised too if I were you.
Online dating is extremely depressing and takes up a tonne of time and mental energy. Anything that can make that process easier is easily worth it.
I moved back home after a few years away, signed up for tinder, wasn't looking for anything serious. My first match has been my gf for 4 years and now she's my fiancé. The rules didn't work for me
If you're paying for their services you kinda deserve to be stuck with them
Few people know how to abuse their profile so this checks out
I don't understand what you said. Can you please repeat it in a different way?
Pay to win make you pay because the odds are stacked against you. If you know exactly what you're doing, you can beat the game for free. Very few people know how to do this and as long you keep this knowledge in the dark, it's easy to keep people paying
so what is that secret "knowledge"?
If I'm not mistaken, the secret knowledge regarding dating apps is simply...
... be more attractive than most of the others on there.
In all seriousness, dating apps can be really tough on people, and we should keep in mind that our success or failure on them has nothing to do with how desirable of a person we are in real life. It's just about selecting pictures with the right angles and maybe writing a sentence or two that draws some people in. It's inherently superficial and fake by its very nature. They can be fun, absolutely, and you may even find someone you really connect with on them. But it's not a reflection of how desirable you truly are!
(Just speaking generally, not directly toward you OP)
There is something to be said about lack of success of dating apps, but I don't necessarily think it's this.
In "the real world," you meet people that have the same interests as you - shopping at the same store, being at a venue, or engaging in an activity. By default, this limits the people you meet - if there isn't some overlap in these interests/activities (most likely repeated overlap), you don't meet.
Now take the internet - the only "shared" thing you'll have with most people on a dating app is that.. well.. you're available and using a dating app. It takes much more "sifting" to get to the people you actually align with, because the flood gates are totally open by nature.
I think your undervalueing safe,risk free, conversation , online
Just use the free version of Grindr dude
Not gay. Not a dude.
You can be anything you put your mind to
It's about drive
its about power
We stay hungry
I mean you never specified so how should he know
Not with that attitude!
No worry, I just don't pay and still don't get matches.
Y'all ever try the low tech version of dating? Just being stupid and crazy and meeting someone IRL?
Nah that's cringe now
Everything is cringe when it comes to dating. It's all mortifying
If you're paying for a dating app then you should probably expect to stay single
And they're sneaky about it too. Eharmony blows.
I think a lot of people would pay for that.
