    Now i am trying hard to contain my jealousy and i am walking around like this...

I'd try the experiment again but with a less flattering photo of yourself - maybe use a snapchat filter to give yourself a big wart or pigs trotters so that people find you more relatable.

    How do you even find out how many likes you get unless you have gone through and liked every available profile on there?

    Sure you did. There's not one post of yours on these forums that's not a wind up.

    My understanding, though very limited, of tinder. Is that you only 'match' when you 'like' someone, so did you just 'like' everyone?

    Women will no doubt be quite fussy about who they click like on, men probably click like on a lot of female profiles playing the 50/50 would I or wouldn't I game!

    Just to stack the odds further against you, how many female profiles are there compared to men?

    Oh for pity sake! You sound like a five year old whinging because somebody else pinched your jelly babies. In case you hadn't realised this is meant to be a serious forum. If you want to wind people up, please find a different place in which to do it.

    Well you should have thought of that before you both signed up.

    It could be worse.

    She could have applied for a job as a personal trainer.

    You have simply reaped the results of your own extreme narcissism and over-inflated ego.

    It's always a shock to realise that others do not see you as you see yourself.

    Buy a new mirror?

    Nothing to see here now, I'm moving on.
    There may be more than one way to skin a cat.
    But the result is always inedible.
