Are you not confident in bumble or are you not confident in general? Can you cold approach a random chick, whether she is alone or with a friend, but cannot handle bumble?
Online is far easier in terms of effort. If you cold approach for 3 months and build your charm, you would not even take bumble seriously. Online Dating would be far too boring to even bother with.
As @Apollo recommended, you should do all of them, compare and contrast, determine what you like best and then how yourself on it. No one can be the best at everything. I personally preferred social game and cold approaching because, at the time, I gave zero fucks. I did not care for quantity. I was just looking for quality.
@moorekom I would argue the opposite. By NOT fucking the slightly chubby chick or the single mom because you “have standards”, or whatever the reason is, you are actually putting young, skinny, slightly less slutty girls on a pedestal. They're really not any better. Or at least not better enough to be worth the hassle if you can fuck some other girl with a lot less effort. Sure, if a hot girl comes along and is down, fuck her, too. Even fuck her preferentially. But don't put her on a pedestal by refusing to fuck her slightly chubbier friend if she's not down and her friend is.
@arakouzo Is that really worth it?
Yes, I was talking about above average chicks. The demographic you described does not register and might not even exist for me.
The bottom line is that whatever caliber of women you can get online, you will get a better caliber in real life, if you're charming and have a tight game. Online could be easy access to lower value women, sure. But not everyone is looking for that.
@moorekom Disagree. Online dating is great for non-chads as long as 1) You're still a little above average looking. Not necessarily hawt, but at least in the "he's kind of cute" range, and 2) You target appropriate women, remembering that almost 60% of women over 20 are overweight, and the average weight and dress size for US women is about 170 pounds and size 14, respectively.
If you're vaguely above average looking and hoping to bed models and hot cheerleaders off of the internet, that's not very realistic. But if you branch out to the slightly chubby but not super-fat, still kind of cute girls, or the 30s and 40s single moms who've kept in shape, online dating is like shooting fish in a barrel as long as you have a job that high school students don't do, and you're not short, bald, or ugly-faced.Read More
Bumble is essentially just like Tinder. You make the first move. It just gives women an added level of filtering. Not only do they have to match with you, but they also have to reach out to your first. Women like that level of control even though realistically it doesn't add that much, primarily because it deters a lot of underconfident guys from bothering with Bumble. Most women will tell you that the quality of guys on Bumble is far better than the quality of guys on Tinder.
I disagree with you about bumble deterring underconfident guys. As a guy who was doing cold approach, online dating and night life for a while, I can tell that most men are better off with social game or cold approach. Online dating is beneficial only for Chads and even then, it is only good for pump and dump. Personally, I had far better results in real life. Personality and charm goes a long way than a model physique can.
Women vastly prefer online dating because of their laziness, fragile ego and their fear of rejection. Bumble helps them have a sense of control. You might know that speed dating where women are seated vs where men are seated produce vastly different results. When they the "quality" of guys is much improved, we have to factor in all of this info and also factor in what she is claiming she is there for vs what she is actually doing.Read More
