I've noticed this, too. It'd be interesting to know if Tinder does this with the permission of the women in question, some of whom are obviously models by trade.

They are a cloud startup. Such people don't respect anyone save for venture capitalists.

They probably buy images stolen & resold by Facebook.

My favorite is Guro, with those Russian flags and inscriptions 3 miles away from Beirut :D
I would be worried :lol:

Legally the images belong to Facebook or google or whoever whenever we upload them. It’s in the fine print.
I imagine imagines uploaded to ios cloud or android cloud belong to those companies too. Part of why I never use those services.

Fine print is glorified enslavement.

Online dating is a futile endeavor for men who aren't super attractive, super charismatic, or just super lucky. You need to meet people in the real world. I don't blame Tinder for making scam profiles. How else are they going to convince us men we have any remote chance of success?



quite an extreme

So don't be fool to think that Dating sites don't create these fake profiles themselves, and don't pay for Tinder!

Did you ever ask yourself why attractive women should do online dating? Attractive women are approached nearly every day on street. They don't need any online dating. Most women totally care about the behaviour of guys. What of your behaviour do they find on online dating sites? That's why there is not even one women for 10 guys on most online dating sites and even less of them are really attractive. The rest of women on dating sites are just fake profiles. What else? :)

Ugh, how many times do we have to dispel this myth. Attractive women are not approached every day :roll:

They do, maybe not offline, some showed me their fb inbox, they received dozens of messages from male friends and acquaintances everyday; that also counts as being approached too.

Wait, so if I exchange jokes or talk bikes with a coworker, does it mean I'm being approached?

Only if he initiates messaging everyday then usually it means there’s an ulterior motif more than just friendship; if it’s just once in a while then it’s nothing, just friendship with a coworker.

Fake model profiles created that are spam bots, scammers to bait people into signing up for paid memberships to waste their valuable time. Only the website creators get rich from dating sites.

Then I know a lot of attractive women who rarely get approached.
Oh, but they don't have Tinder accounts and their Facebook is about interests not bathrooom selfies.

You know, I believe you, men are scared to approach women nowadays.

There’s that cute lebanese girl in gym who has been a member there for so long, she looks shy and reserved.

She looked at me today, but i did nothing, maybe she was looking at my direction and I was simply having wishful thinking.

She is not showing any significant sign of interest and I can find no way to break the ice. So I don’t approach her.

Pride.
