Predictably, rich, famous, and powerful men enjoy the most reproductive success in our society.
Elite athletes, male super-models, CEOs of successful companies, rock stars, movie stars. The men who occupy the very tops of these social dominance hierarchies generally receive the most reproductive success.
First of all, let's keep in mind the 80/20 rule - something which is scientifically demonstrable not just in humans but in other primates as well: by SMV, the top 20% of men will generally monopolize sexual access to the top 80% of women.
In a small, prehistoric hunter-gatherer tribe, ascertaining the status of a given male is fairly easy for a female: what position does he occupy on the tribal dominance pyramid?
Pre-selection by other women, looks, height, fitness (strength, muscularity, low body-fat, etc.), wealth, social status and social skills, body language, the passing of shit-tests and the ability to maintain frame, tone of voice, dominance over others, boldness and assertiveness, confidence, decisiveness, (successful) risk taking, nice clothes and grooming.
I'm sure there's a few criteria I'm missing here that have an impact as well, but you get the gist.
Double standards are still rampant between men and women.
TLDR: Tinder is all about looks, so unless you're in the top 20% of men in terms of looks, you should focus more on approaching women in real life.
They're too shy and hesitant to approach women in real life, so they just swipe right on Tinder and hope for the best.There are a couple really BIG problems with this strategy, though.(1) Just using Tinder or an online dating site is a demonstration of lower sexual value for men.Keep in mind that pre-selection by other women is one of the most powerful signals of sexual eligibility for men, and when you use online dating you're suggesting that you haven't been pre-selected.So 80% of men using these sites are essentially wasting their time, since 80% of men, before they've even said one word have demonstrated that they are: (A) below-average looking, and (B) can't get any in real life so they need to go online (not pre-selected).From the very start you've dug yourself a hole you can't really get out of.
