I had bumble for a few months, I had success at first with matches but lately I haven’t had a ounce of luck. Most the girls are college girls and I believe they are looking for a certain type of guy that I don’t have lol

Yes, the same type of guy even most non-college women are looking for:

A 6 foot tall male model driving a $1.4 million Ferrari LaFerrari.

However, on the flip side, I wouldn't want the gal to agree to a 2nd date with me if she really wasn't that interested in me either -- but wanted to "give it a chance".

I am usually referring to situations when a man seems like a possible match on paper. But there wasn't an immediate connection or sparks on the first date. That is usually when I would be interested in seeing a man again and finding out if a connection can develop after we spent more time together.

I know men that used Bumble. They told me they got matches. But many of the women would not contact them without 24 hours ( or 48 hours if a man extended the deadline ). That sounds like a lot of people there aren't serious and are just looking for an ego boost. Not unlike Tinder or POF.

Or they might exchange 1 or 2 messages with someone before they stop responding or "unmatch" the other person from their list. Also not unlike POF or Tinder.

I agree. What we're apt to lose sight of is that in the dating world -- we're not the only fish they're feeling out in the market. When we met someone, you can't expect they're not talking to anyone else with interest or potential interest. It doesn't mean they're a "playa" -- you're just not the only one in town. And sometimes the timing itself doesn't "match" to coagulate.
