And don't think it's different in Okcupid, bumble or match.com.

Did the article indicate the breakdown between women who were real and women who were fake (i.e., men or bots posing as women)?

I highly doubt they did, that would make the ratio 20 *real* men to 1 *real* woman. :mrgreen:

You should also exclude the instagram models who make money by collecting horny followers.

That alone might make the M:F ratio closer to 200:1...

Valid point. In the old days dating agencies used to sign up men on up front contracts and then hire girls to date the men (using the term "guaranteed introductions"), The girls got paid by the agencies plus got a free dinner.

Nowadays the online version is bot-girls who are paid to interact online.

Yet surprisingly I watched a documentary on tinder dating and (I am not sure if the TV show is being paid by tinder) but the men looked pretty ordinary married to stunning models??

Not sure whom to believe

What’s the point of me going on a dating app ever again after finding this out?

Oh and don’t forget the MtoF transgender too; most straight men wouldn’t want to date one.
