(Which also creates the possible complication for Tinder work itself as they claim to have the ranking system which influences which users are being shown to whom based also on how much are they liked by others.
It cannot be considered reliable based on matches from males who swipe right every profile they see.)So my research from before can be considered relevant only in part of counting my own attraction to males, while the second experiment shows not my attractiveness in different contexts, but strategies of males.
Males try to get more matches by liking everyone and make “post-filtering” — deciding whether to write to female or not after they already got a match (and apparently often they decide not to).

This is only 18% for women, suggesting that female users often wait to receive a message first.
Overall, we received 8248 male matches, most of whom do not pursue interaction.
