Redid my profile and almost instantly starting getting a lot more likes. Got two dates lined up back to back for this weekend!
Rebuilt my profile and maxed out the number of likes before I even had a chance to finish my learning swipes on Bumble. Now just to convert these to dates lol
Walking through real conversations and sharing the logic on what to do when was helpful in shaping my own strategy
While not traditionally a reader I enjoyed the ~4 hours it took me to read through the material. I like the author's take on dating in general and they addressed a lot of the questions I had been secretly wondering ever since I downloaded Tinder. Took off one star since you probably wouldn't get as many matches as they advertise unless you live in an urban area (I don't think there's even 500+ people that fit my criteria in my small town 😂)
Honestly I thought this would be trash but it actually covers just about every question regarding the apps and how to line up a bunch of dates
lot of words in this thing
for what it is, it does the job
there is some insight on how the algorithm functions (chess analogy is great) but I imagine this will change as time progresses. interested to see how the content continues to update
Lots of good content but I think there should be more material on subsequent dates (e.g. date number 2,3,4 etc..) as the guide really just gets you through the first 1-2. Yes there's probably more variability at this point but content on how to keep the other party interested after a few weeks would be helpful. Overall good read though and I was able to make some changes to my profile that seem to be doing well based on the last few days.
Got a date lined up this weekend!
This is a pretty good overview on the entire dating process. Live video demonstrations would be a cool addition.
The material in the copy I received was relatively short and to the point, I got through the book over the course of this weekend. Some more example conversations might be helpful but there were enough for me to generally understand the approach.
Overall a fairly short read that I completed in a single day. Pieces like the pricing of subscriptions vary to what I get but being in a different country that is expected. The author's tone is light and enjoyable, some of the takeaways I was already familiar with but the algorithm appears to function differently than what I was thought. Will try some tweaks to my profile and update my review based on the results.
Book could probably be shortened by 10-20 pages. Select parts (e.g. "Are we dating the same guy" Facebook group) ramble on a bit. Other sections have pieces of interesting knowledge but I found myself jumping around a little bit throughout my read.
Would have liked more example of profile pictures but there are some interesting nuggets shared throughout the book.
Nice quick read. Comparing chess rankings to how the algorithm ranks a profile was certainly eye-opening.
Look let’s be honest, buying a book about dating apps feels a little weird. But I was happily surprised by the thoroughness of the content and how much was dedicated to the emotional toll and how to keep a positive attitude through the whole ordeal. Well done mates!
this is an actual book with some images included. thought it was a collection of graphics. I don't have time to read all that.
I thought I had a solid selection of pictures until I saw the examples provided and the logic behind building your “online brand.” Swapped out a couple of my older pictures using their recommendations and WOW, the impact on how many likes I’m receiving is incredible!
Ebook wasn't delivered for some reason. Emailed support and they sent me a copy about 12 hours later but wanted to read through it tonight.
While the main topic is online dating, there's a lot of great content on how to set yourself up for success outside of Tinder. You can't expect your partner to be great if you aren't putting the work in yourself.
Quick and to the point read, doesn't dwell too long on topics that aren't relevant. While people who have spent many years on the apps (myself included) will be familiar with some of the tips on profile construction, the insight on how the algorithm works is unique to anything I’ve seen elsewhere. Only recently updated my profile but already getting more matches than before.
