TL;DR - Don't fucking bother
Lately, I haven’t had much time to daygame. And if I have, approach anxiety is huge obstacle for me, and may get in a couple approaches but a lot of weaseling out goes on. Time has really been in a squeeze since I’m looking for a new job while also looking at side-business opportunities since I’m tired of being an employee, while also maintaining the typical suburban life BS: working on cars, working on the house, working on the lawn, working on the kids, working on the wife, working out myself… and somehow finding time for work work.
Times have fucking changed. I have more interesting content for a profile, better photos from travels and adventures, more dating experience, and I’m in slightly better shape than in the past.
Years ago, I had solid results from OKC, an occasional 3 dates in a week which is my max. Bringing a new girl into my “collective” was regular enough that doing online game was practical and effective. So I signed up to try it out again.
When I first signed up, after a few days I quickly had 99+ likes. I thought “huh… maybe it’s OK after all, I’m sure most are ugly but there’s gotta be a dozen that are at least decent.” So I signed up for premium membership to see them, I realized it was a fucking scam: All of the 99+ women were either:
- A) Completely unattractive. (75%)
- B) Hot and from the Philippines or some other side of the world. (25%)
- You write an opener for every girl you swipe right. Your card will be shown to her earlier. But, there’s a subtle hint of extra neediness.
- You wait for her to match before you write the opener. It’ll be less needy, but you might not be shown to her at all.
Unfortunately, I don’t know the statistics. Past OKC would let me see who I already messaged, it had an archive of all my message sent/received, # times my profile was viewed, etc. Now, they hide all of this, any stats require a ton of extra work.
By paying for the premium membership, I was hoping that AT LEAST the filtering would help save me time. But NO. Sure, you can filter for body type and attractiveness, but holy shit. This doesn’t work for the swiping mode, the mode where it’d be MOST useful. There are so many unattractive women on this site. If I use the older-fashioned “browse” mode, there were a few dozen women I could see at first. But now, it shows up pretty nasty women even with the filters.
I’ve had it.
