lzebez12d
politics/identity sort of stuff sucks, specially when abroad
fxehvjt12d
Yeah of course it would mostly be about the person and the match. I guess I am intrigued by the idea whether being from your โ€˜home countryโ€™ would be an asset or a blocker
vhlcykaqzvfoyv12d
I think that might be quite common for people to mentally eye-roll when they see / hear people from their native country abroad. When I was living in London all my friends thought hearing a Dutch accent was cute and all I could think was โ€œugh-blegh-ew-noโ€. But Iโ€™m sure if I hadnโ€™t been brought up in the NL Iโ€™d be like โ€œaw, look at you guys pronouncing your Gโ€™s and Sโ€™sโ€
qdnjklbih12d
idtdgxlm Think it depends on the person, personally I kind of try to avoid people from my country, while other people seek people from same country, depends on your preference ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
zunfzhcvzt12d
+1
axnbtvwcabw12d
also once you're abroad for a while sometimes it's nice to hang out with someone you have some major cultural things in common, so you don't have to constantly figure out what is going on
ahnpqzt12d
haha yeah
fgqjmqy12d
I'm an alien ๐Ÿ‘ฝ
gsimtwjyibn11d
Omg regarding that goop website, just check eg this article goop.com/wellness/spirituality/best-crystals-for-office-desk/ I wonder how much a constant reminder of childrenโ€™s work in African mines help you to be more productive. โ€œIf I donโ€™t work hard Iโ€™ll get sent to the mines?โ€ idk
hzjxpexp11d
yxyxlwdjsdqx you're thinking of diamond mines in africa.. those large crystals are just from regular mines
oakfekolnuq11d
Is there a noticeable difference? Iโ€™m not an expert in this but I heard about super 30c/day payments for African miners and now everytime I see crystals for sale I want to ๐Ÿคฎ
ecrtdiid11d
i mean regular mines in US or whatever most likely
ojorkwyy11d
๐Ÿ˜ฑ
kqkuneal11d
Yea... unfortunately whenever there's a new craze there is almost always something shady to fuel it..
tfuofmxsnwueepd11d
a long read and by far the best GOOP and Gwyneth Paltrow and wellness article ever written
stvxkdxb11d
.
bxroxlog11d
Is there a tldr? I read the first few paragraphs and realised how long it goes for Iโ€™m too tired and drink to read it
lqepsxar11d
I skipped to a part where 15 lives ago someone had their feet chopped off and thatโ€™s why they have flat feet in their current life.
mrauafg11d
How do past lives work with exponential population increa-- ah nevermind
iqpgvypcl11d
The dead outnumber the living by at least 10 to 1 at the moment, so the maths actually works out for now
htmehzdsl11d
But I do always wonder if all the people who think they were the same famous person ever get together to really fight it out.
grlicdlii11d
Like, you can't all have been Anne Boleyn or Napoleon in a past life
zzucaylurer11d
Maybe our souls split into a thousand pieces
kanhwurmtvr11d
And meld with other pieces
djthgfcobls11d
For our next lives
iqndwwdpnio11d
Duh
sxikajahjzotbtr9d
I was a poor illiterate peasant who led an uninteresting hard life in the past
zujtaxlitwa7d
I'm.... so confused
lzbccalz7d
gwxbwsrxdmut the alt text was "This is basically an amalgam of Gaskill, Montgomery, and Austen, but with honest emotional states." if it helps
bejbjzqo7d
also the "shockingly untidy" panel was a joke in of itself
bygpfuwujnq7d
fynsiflltz I tried submitting a feature request but it yelled at me, so I'll drop it here instead :upside_down_face:
Re photo vs info displayed on the dating feature

Currently if a person has a lot of interests marked and more than a couple words to describe themselves (which is great) it covers up their photo... It would be better to be able to scroll or flip to see info vs photo (and maybe for variety put the info first and photo second? But I guess we humans are visual creatures).
oqzpxcam6d
I totally agree. I think it would be best if you could just click the user to see the full profile with travel history etc?
zlqgzpxuua6d
Flip to see more info seems a good option. My guess but not my personal feeling/opinion on this type of dating stylish thingy psychological stuff app mechanism is 1 to 3 secs first impressions are important, so photo first I guess,
Use cases:
โ€ข user likes face -> click to see + info -> swipes yes or no
โ€ข user likes face -> swipes yes
โ€ข user dislikes face -> click to see + info -> swipes yes or no
โ€ข user dislikes face -> swipes no
ttizxmy6d
kinda like that feature tbh
iajshhv6d
if someone doesn't open the app for a week it seems reasonable to stop showing them to new people
wrbpbwu6d
maybe a week is too agro
jvoexiwg6d
i recently flew into a new city and got a notification from one of my apps where it detected i was in a new city.. i have background app refresh disabled and i didn't open the app, so kind of surprised it was able to detect that
zznxdezdzyq6d
I donโ€™t know for Tinder, but Bumble definitely showed people that didnโ€™t log in for a long time. I saw a friend on bumble (she was in a couple), I asked her and said she didnโ€™t use the app in 2 years.
jdhgjtxzfzz6d
So who knows.. Thereโ€™s not a lot of ways to check that out.. except find a dude with tinder and reduce the distance to the lowest and set the age to yours exactly.. hmmm.. ๐Ÿค”
jrhsogbwahm6d
zdmvcfst it's a perfectly fine feature if they're actually doing that
fasvnqmlvrm6d
what I suspect is they're just saying that to make people feel forced to sign back in
spqlivyhana6d
but they're still using stale profiles
hncpwdih5d
its to get you to sign back in for sure, but i doubt you get shown if your a stale account. I can reach the end of the pile sometimes, if there were stale accounts I doubt that would be possible with the number of accounts on tinder.
frwntsf5d
Bumble for sure shows stale accounts
dskoja3d
I have no regrets about having notifications off for Tinder.
ilqasowxazgnl2d
I have no regrets about having notifications off ~for Tinder.~
kgtfozn2d
Yeah, I'm a no notification kind of guy. Only a direct phone call breaks through.
axhnxuaee2d
Okay screw it I'm thinking about trying the nomad dating thing. Have people given it a shot?
xjuaqieqcelzy2d
.read that wrong
ilopzxryp2d
Report back dmxdpmydsr
irzelmrim2d
haha tyaltecgry I don't even know how to start it
ujdxlddxp2d
but some googling and digging around nomadlist will probably figure it out
hyqwshndv1d
Christ Iโ€™m tired. Iโ€™m not sure I should be this tired.
kztglhn19h
Not a good sign when dudes at the bar repeatedly inquire if your date is really a lady ๐Ÿ˜ 
jnslucu19h
well.. is she?
xpofzhl18h
No reason to think she's not except for her height and style. Wasn't planning on running any tests, I'm just surprised people would be so rude.
vbqwrgy18h
yeah that's super shitty
isoohwd18h
i'd say you should fuck with them and reply "yeah i'm into that" but that risks violence for her ๐Ÿ˜•
qrqbyvmwhhrh18h
yeah i was going to comment and say wow people are so transphobic and shitty sometimes
iywzeux18h
yeah i made a joke then realized that was also shitty to say ๐Ÿ˜ž
qveyii18h
it's not the content but the intention! (i like to believe that, but it never works like that heh)
yejrxpzdhuei18h
yeahhh sadly impact > intent
rxoegxd17h
I honestly didn't understand what they were trying to say at first, it just didn't occur to me. Meh, anyway.
tcmszwk17h
Even the serving staff were rude (albeit in different ways). Kinda weird how everyone at this bar was acting like a total trainwreck, but good that her and I mostly just looked at each other and sharing a silent _WTF._
igcopmyv14h
mmqzymje foreigners or locals?
fjhhvhrugit10h
Anyone know how to reset oneโ€™s Tinder ELO? Iโ€™m assuming creating a whole new FB and then a whole new tinder profile off that but that is more work than I care to put into getting laid
ncblurddvxjfvzv9h
Set your location to somewhere youโ€™ll be the hottest girl in town, and buy some boosts
pipgdhicdcttfcv9h
Replace all your photos with heavily face-apped ones for a week and then buy some boosts
eknhkvrzhftnkib9h
Not even that for me
piqhktqqvpkrchq9h
Total picture change did not pull my account out of elo hell. Only thing I can recommend is to clear the app cache and make a new account with a new phone number. FB is optional these days
nnqmumgkwqugyxx9h
collecting SIM cards in different countries already, but if you don't have one handy, there's textverified.com|textverified.com (one-shot but less effort) and buyaccs.com|buyaccs.com (cheap wholesale)
gtadzzwc9h
ah, sim card trick - that's a good idea
apcxctco9h
so Tinder, in my experience last year - Singapore, Thailand, Bali, is still gold over there - but in Canada, North America, western europe - it's pretty much dead, complete waste of time
gsfrdzjz9h
people can still get good dates over there?
rcohkoumfoucewzh8h
Didnโ€™t Tinder kill ELO awhile back?
yxptyyov8h
gijukagac I assume thatโ€™s due to looks/competition.. harder to stand out from the crowd in western world, winner take all phenomenon
lricbvp8h
Tinder said it killed ELO and replaced it with [marketing speak for some other kind of ranking system]
qfrgxdw8h
hcleohkos Both, sadly. Mostly started by some rude old European dude. Thankfully it was all over before she got back from the loo.
rysjyht8h
Dude has never seen a tall Asian woman before or something.
fxjkniju7h
zeujqbnah could be. But I know females who get the same experience... Bots, Instagram whores, people who don't reply, 100-1 guy to girl ratio
jqjmktzl7h
Maybe it's shit in Asia too now
xkeaxpnk7h
Going to try the old fashioned walk up to
qduwutuc7h
People and talk to them
coyhcxcqnl7h
even if tinder works at all in USA/Canada, it's going to suck 1000x times outside USA/Canada
jkzvqafb7h
Uh what
hscxhupw7h
Tinder works well in Asia if you want to date locals
xqneibkciq3h
maybe that's cos u white :joy:, lotta asians looking for green card
ocajmivjhl3h
i was assuming same race/ same country dating
ecvbpnqgayp38min
mxgqbgwgd WOMEN not females
lmfbfnjurnl37min
apiynvmxvpikeasa that also sounds like more effort than I care to put into getting laid ๐Ÿ˜‚
lyjgsxtceux37min
Hrm, how do I clear the app cache?
vpsywndziib36min
Also, had no idea FB is optional these days but that's where my photos were pulled from so it was easier
lajjwvsf32min
delete app and reinstall would clear the cache
