Full of beautiful women trying to get account numbers from crypto by gaining your confidence of love and then slowly getting you to invest in crypto trading and eventually getting all your log in information and account numbers by insisting you give them a screenshot of every step so you don't do anything wrong. Why would a beautiful woman that is model material be interested in an old man??? Why would a beautiful woman that is model material be on a dating site at all??? When I realized I was being conned, I had to change all my passwords to my bank, crypto accounts, emails etc... I also had to withdraw all my Coinbase and ETH. money and put it in a safe wallet. After I did that, I noticed that all the values have been going up consistently causing me to lose thousands...

THINK TWICE!!! BEFORE BUYING A GOLD OR PLATINUM SUBSCRIPTION FROM THIS NOT RESPECTFUL, NOT HONEST, EGOISTICAL COMPANY. I used Tinder as a paid platinum subscriber with an annual (12-month) subscription. After 4 months of use, my account was banned from Tinder without any explanation or warning.

All my attempts to contact support and explain - «Dear Customer Support, I signed up to find love and never had the intention to break any rules, I was polite to members as can be seen from my message history. My profile contains true information about me as well as photos. Please check my message history and you will see that I was always polite, the photos belong to me and the profile description is written correctly and politely, I can change something if I did wrong» - to which I received the standard answer "You violated the rules of the community, the answers in your case will no longer be provided, this is our last message» … REALLY???? SERIOUSLY?

As a result, losing money and not being eligible for a refund from either Tinder or Apple because the payment was made more than 60 days ago. This is such disrespectful for a person who paid for a year sub. and did not even receive an answer why he was banned. I would understand if I was being rude or if the photos were fake, but no, my profile was perfect and correct, and I was respectful in communicating with everyone on the platform.

    Same-sex oriented male here with a very straight-forward, thorough profile and a decent amount of likes and matches. My pictures are clear, clean and current. It seems it's been the same routine with too many guys on here; both match, I often initiate conversation, it lasts a little bit then they stop. Or guys will match me and then I initiate convo and then there is nothing on their end as a response. It seems no one I've interfaced is serious about consistent conversation or even getting off the app for a real in-person date.

    I am halfway into my second Gold Tier month and as many compatible guys that have matched, I should have gone on several dates and should be coupled up by now, There are many great well-filled out genuine profiles on this app but where are the serious, enthusiastic men who are standing by what is written in their profiles? I will hold out a little longer but it's a bit ridiculous at this point with so many potentials from the matches and not one real date off the app yet. Patience is definitely needed, then again I think it's just about who you meet... I know some people who have gone on dates so...

    I was using Tinder for a while and suddenly I got banned. First I was frustrated because I paid a whole year of a subscription and I don't get my money back, and nobody told me why they banned me, I am always very polite in my conversation so I have no idea. Customer service is nowhere to be found. Now after using other apps like Badoo and Lovoo I realized that they are much better and they have the same features as Tinder for free. I would get a lot of fake profiles in Tinder, not anymore, Also I get much more matches and have much more features that I didn't have in Tinder.

    I have been using Tinder on and off for years, today, out of nowhere they banned my account for absolutely no reason and just said I violated the terms of use, which I know for a fact is not true. Gosh, the least they can do is tell you what you did wrong or stop banning people for absolutely no reason.

    Tinder is an app that many can agree promotes positivity, inclusivity and equality. However, when you get in contact with their Customer Support, you will notice why Tinder has a such a bad reputation in the online-dating world. I activated my account one day and the next day I was banned. During the time I had to use the account I remained respectful and mature. The only problematic things that had happened were men who wanted me to meet them in their car after I had told them I am first, not looking for hook ups, and secondly, prefer meeting in a public place during daytime. The men were visibly upset over me not trusting to meet a complete stranger in the middle of the night which means they most likely reported me for whatever excuse they seemed to fit best.

    Previously, I have also had negative experiences with men on Tinder. I have always reported and unmatched/blocked those men yet I have always seen them later still on the app. Which makes me question why I was unreasonably banned and yet verbally abusive men are allowed to keep using the service. Looking at it from a logical and financial point of view men who are prone to become verbally abusive over messages have less of a chance with actually meeting women face to face, which in turn means they are more likely to buy premium services from Tinder. Unlike the women who fall victim to these awful men.

    I decided to investigate what had happened with my account. I visited Tinder's website where you can contact support. They have a page where you can choose what you need help with and why. They give you the option to ask help regarding trouble with logging in due to being banned. After I had explained and expressed my confusion about the situation I sent my support request. The way Customer SUPPORT dealt with my situation was ironically UNSUPPORTIVE.

    Through the course of over 10+ emails back and forth I was talking with about 5 or 6 different customer support persons. While each of my emails was different and asking new questions and trying to make more sense of the situation, each response was the exact same copy-paste response. Not only did this show me absolute carelessness and unprofessionalism it also showed me how LAZY Tinder is when it comes to helping their own CUSTOMERS. The responses were always the exact same, explaining that I was banned. It is funny how I contact them over the issue that I am banned and the response I get is "You are banned" as if I did not know that already.

    The fact I have taken time out of my day to deal with customer support shows I am generally trying to fix the confusing issue, yet Tinder does not care that you are making efforts to clear up issues/mistakes with THEIR OWN SERVICE. This shows absolute lack of regard when it comes to respect, and the quality of care and helpfulness. My requests were ignored and not acknowledged in each email I received back from Tinder.

    Tinder's customer support is by far the laziest and worst I have ever come across. At this point they might as well just not have this section in their business, would save them a lot of money since none of the staff they have are actually useful and you can probably get an algorithm to send the same automated copy-paste responses to people needing help. Not only will you not get your issue solved; you will most likely also be talking with a different person each time you send in a response which is even worse and for a business this LARGE, you would expect them to understand how customer support is supposed to be effective.

    The chances of you being able to get help from Tinder is close to 0. It is clear they do not care about their customer experience and focus on monetization, ad-revenue and silencing people with negative experiences. Also, if you have purchased anything from them recently like perhaps just subscribing to a premium feature and after that you get banned, you can dream about getting your money back since they have no legal responsibility in that situation and you will be talking to wall.

    My take is: Do not even bother with Tinder. The people you meet there will not be worth all the negative things you will experience on the app. Not only that, but Tinder as a business is just as horrible as the experience you will have on the app itself. Tinder is not meant for people looking to meet friends, love or make memorable memories. Tinder is for people who do not care about themselves or the people they plan on meeting. You are not respected. You are not valuable. You are not acknowledged. You will be disappointed. And you ARE better off without Tinder.

    I literally set up my account in the morning and after changing some photos that were just of my face and nothing explicit (following the proper protocol as the rest of the people who wrote the reviews) they banned my account for no reason. I sent an email and no response yet. So they scam me out of $34.00. I would like an explanation and a refund. This is total **.

    The moderators of this app treat users shockingly unfairly. You pay astronomical fees for the platinum service. Then you write a fair and respectful bio of what you are and aren't looking for, which somebody finds offensive, because she is not in your strike zone. They then report you and the moderators just ban you without any forewarning. You lose all the money you paid, irrespective of how much time is left on your subscription. Essentially they rob you out of your money without good reason.

    After being on this site for about a week & following all posted guidelines even verifying my pictures, I was banned, account taken down and given no explanation as to why this happened. This is just Ridiculous. Then I followed up to their customer service to inquire why this happened and how I violated community guidelines and why I was suddenly banned and their response was an automated, "we take our communities safety seriously," type thing. I'm still trying to figure out exactly what I did. This site is a joke and I'm wondering how these people manage to keep this app up and going to this day.

    Tinder has gotten really bad since my last visit. They've turned into a money hungry app that doesn't care at all about the needs of the person. I had no idea that you now have limited amounts of swipes to use before they charge you minimum 20 pounds to continue on swiping and see who possibly may have liked your post for extra money. They really play on men's shortcomings trying to seek a partner, total garbage.

    Tinder author review by Mark Brooks

    Tinder is a mobile dating app that can be downloaded and used for free. It is currently the largest and most popular dating app online with over 50 million downloads. It is best known for its extremely popular swiping feature.

    • Social Media Login: Tinder uses your Facebook profile as a means of sign up for their dating app. This helps prevent fraud and makes it easy to quickly import information and photos over to Tinder so you can begin searching immediately.

    • Swiping: Tinder's popular swiping feature allows members to quickly move through matches until they find people of interest. If you do not like the profile you are looking at, swipe left and you will not see them again. If you are interested, swipe right. If you accidentally swipe in the wrong direction, you can now pay to unswipe a match.

    • Consent before contact: While most dating sites will let users contact anyone in their membership ranks, Tinder will only allow you to contact someone if you have both "Swiped Right" on each other.

    • Quick local matching: Tinder is most popularly used as a way to meet people the same day within close proximity.
