Also keeping your interaction as offline as possible reduces the chance of false allegation based on perceived social status and her capitalizing off of it.
TL;DR - Recommendation/Bottom Line: Be more offline and hook up outside of your home area.
*Update - I forgot to mention that especially since these online dating app companies have been sold to the highest bidder and now are mostly owned by a company named IAC whose HQ I believe is in NYC and go figure they are hiring for Marketing lately - LOL - They have absolutely every incentive of keeping delusional guys on the platform using fake profiles and bots. Most of these people are hired from Philippines and Indonesia and spend all day catfishing FB accounts from girls who don't even know they are on Tinder. This SHOULD be illegal but maybe there is a workaround they found and these Women somehow legally consented to IAC using their photos via some kind of FB plug-in and/or app (nobody reads those agreements they just hit the checkbox). That girl you are swiping on either hasn't used the app since 2013 or behind the profile is Rolando from Luzon, Philippines. That's why you're not hearing back. And if you do hear back he will suggest a cam website to visit :) *
In my observation with the continuous proliferation of technology. Your competition for a girl in a regular situation (NOT the club or bar or gym) let's say a grocery store, park bench or in a networking group of some kind is much lower than it used to be. I understand this post topic may have been made a while back but there has been some further rapid change in the marketplace necessitating this point to be re-iterated.
This is also in-part exacerbated and made worse by the recent sexual harassment allegations. So many guys want to start online to get some sort of documentation on record. (The reality is you can get a burner phone and get texts and calls after the fact which would be more influential in court than conversation beforehand in my opinion.) But the fact remains is that online is less effective now and it's getting increasingly harder to communicate social proof online. At the same time most importantly it provides social proof as a motive to take down a popular Man with a false allegation so they themselves can be more popular and get more attention (even if temporary).
Women will be more scrutinizing and looking out for catfish. They will be looking for validation points which could end up getting you into more trouble since you have to reveal more information about yourself to get her feeling comfortable and secure to meet you offline. They could use this information to frame you without even meeting you in person theoretically. See the State of Michigan where at times the Father's legal name and last known address suffices to establish "Paternity"
When you approach offline you can use more non-verbal communication and avoid providing unnecessary details about your life. She will judge based on instinct instead of looking at facts on a computer or mobile screen which aren't as "sexy". You can keep it just between you two and avoid showing her details about who you know, what precise area you live in (before it's time to smash) and where you work etc. Best case scenario you do it in a Best Western, both enjoy and have fun and go back to the regular lives uninterrupted. That's of course the best case scenario which rarely happens these days. Whatever happened to the simple days of consensual activity between a random Man and a random Woman in a Midtown hotel? Discrete and uncomplicated, they both went back to their business having fulfilled their primitive desire and no one else ever the wiser. End of story! (I know it was never like this but you get the point)
Women are always looking for some sort of power or bargaining in exchange for sex despite Feminist pleas to the contrary so the only "low cost" sex available is via prostitution where no personal information usually need be provided. (The lowest social risk being outside of the U.S. where it's decriminalized or legal.)
I highly doubt most guys are going through the effort to game in a different city and make bogus social media profiles in another location and adding facebook only friends to pad the "identity". I have done experiments in the past where I've used a cousin's pictures (he's living in another country) and we look similar. With his permission I've spoofed his information in the state he resides in. It is very difficult even with that closeness and authenticity to get over on many Women because they are very leery online these days. They ask very pointed and directed questions not with the intention of guaranteeing safety (have offered to meet up at a very public place) but rather GAUGING your social status and the accuracy thereof. ("What neighborhood did you live in? Who do you know at _? Do you know _? Did you used to go _____?", This line of questioning isn't really natural for just a hookup)
So in all likelihood you're connecting to Tinder with your main profile which allows them to snoop and get unnecessary information on you without directly asking probing questions. Nevertheless, under the guise of safety many Women will lock down who can approach them based on those they vetted and have gotten the appropriate (potential blackmail) information on. Remember, even if a Judge and Jury rule you innocent from a legal perspective, the community won't rule you innocent from a social perspective.
These days from a social perspective it becomes perplexing on how you can hook up providing just enough "social proof" to win her over and not enough to give her ammunition to launch a false allegation the moment you hit her G-spot the wrong way by accident. Remember most of these guys in the media HAVE NOT BEEN CONVICTED IN COURT OF LAW....Yet they are guilty in the social sense which has almost equivalent ramifications. We don't want to be over-paranoid but I question the quality and types of Women the lot of you are attracted to. Judging from the intel and reports on here they tend to be more on the BPD side of the spectrum and sadly yes it is quite possible (based on your reports) they tend to have better pussy.
So this advice is for guys who find themselves for whatever reason constantly running into crazy girls. The less unnecessary information (including your legal name) they have (or can easily reference) the better. Having social proof is a double edged sword it can work in your favor to get her into bed but it can work against you to serve as a tool to destroy you.
She is far less likely to let the hamster spin in a moment of weakness and play a standard roulette game and have the ball convienently end up on your number, if she knows that nothing may come of her artificially contrived false allegation because you don't have deep connections in the community, in common with her or who would care if she accused you of something. They would say oh that's so terrible, and honestly including the Women (actually, ESPECIALLY her female compatriots) they will quickly move on. And if you don't even live in the town there is no social negative impact for you. No one is going to care that some chick you banged in Nebraska says you raped her (when you DID NOT) and a court of law found you innocent and you are currently living in NYC But if she knows your facebook identity from the start that could give her more or less motive to go through with the false allegation or not. If you don't have enough social proof it hurts your chances of getting laid, if you don't have enough social proof it reduces her likelihood of targeting you with a false allegation too. However, it diminishes her perceived ROI on the interaction. So as a result, online really isn't a net gain these days for the established Male.
The downside of being Chad Thundercock on campus now is you have a big bullseye on your forehead and can be seen just as a nice big target to take down. After all if Ronda launches a false allegation against Billy the Nerd or Zack the Mysterious Man from out of town with no social media presence (you in this example) not as many people are going to notice or care. So the upside isn't as high and you become less of a target when her ovaries change temperature suddenly and decide to make up some shit.
Any opinions on this viewpoint would be appreciated. But I think it could help some guys stay safe and think strategic but not paranoid.
