In the first day of 2017, I made a resolution: “I will swipe right for everybody on Tinder“. Since that day, I have swiped right about 107,000 times! (Continue reading to find out how I made these calculations)
During this period of time, I had 2,912 matches! It means about 3% of the girls who are on Tinder in this area likely to find me attractive.
934 users unmatched me (32% of matches). I think most of the accounts who unmatched me were fake accounts. I spotted 67 fake accounts but it’s a lot more than that since fake accounts unmatch right after sending a spam message so it’s hard to take a note about them.
I tried to find a pattern about the names that are used by fake accounts but there is no pattern. They use a variety of names such as Angela, Felicia, Gabriela, Kimi, Sophie etc.

After talking with some of my matches, I scheduled 36 dates. 6 of them were canceled by her and I canceled 1 (19% total cancelation rate).
I went on a date 29 times. 22 of them for a drink at a bar and 7 of them for a coffee at a coffee shop.
Nobody was late in 18 of the dates which means 62% of my dates were on time. My date was late in 8 of them (3 of them significantly). We both were late for the rest (3 of them). It looks like I never kept anybody waiting for me 🙂
Following weeks, I got closer to only a handful of my dates.
After this 6-month experience, what I can say is that “Tinder works” if you are determined enough to spend a good amount of time for swiping and talking on the app and keep putting your best shirt on for dates!
How did I find out these numbers?
I developed a small application that swipes right for everybody and counts the swipes in the background. It also counts unmatches, fake accounts, and dates upon my manual input.
It was fun! I have been wondering about my numbers.
