What happens when you ask 200 women for sex on Tinder?
That’s what we did for our Tinder Experiment. But with a twist!
We made two different type of profiles.
One Bad Boy and one Nice Guy.
Both of them wanted the same thing: banging.
Do women want to go for the quick nightly adventure with them?
And who was more successful? The Bad boy, or the nice guy?

Step 1: Creating the Tinder Experiment
It all started when one of my TextGod coaches and I saw a YouTube video.
A channel named “LeenaDProductions” did a similar Nice Guy vs Bad Boy video.
I wanted to recreate that whole social experiment using myself as the test subject. Just to make sure no results were manipulated.
Besides, it looked like a lot of fun to do.
I called my camera man / photographer and we got started right away.
First we came up with the characters:
The first would be The Bad Boy. He’s the type of guy that:
- Flaunts alcohol.
- Flaunts cash money.
- Flaunts muscles.
He also plays the electric guitar and never smiles.
(I love how cliché we made him haha.)
The second guy would be The Nice Guy. He would swap the electric guitar for a cute ukulele. On top of that, he:
- Plays cheerfully with his cat.
- Rides a bike.
- Reads art books.
This Tinder experiment wouldn’t be complete without giving each character a fitting bio.
Let’s have a look at both bio’s and the photos.
Step 2: Shooting the photos of the Bad Boy
It’s not easy to create a profile for a douchebag and a gentleman.
We weren’t even sure how to label the heroes of our experiment.
Is he a fuckboi, like in the original video? Is he more like an a$$hole? A douche bag? A bad boy? A jock?
What are the differences between all these labels?
And how do you display them in your Tinder pictures?
We ended up naming him a ‘Bad Boy’ but in fact, he is a mix of all of these labels.
He is a man that is something similar to what all these names suggest.
So, let’s have a look at his photos.
It’s a guy in a suit pouring whiskey from up high in a fancy glass in the middle of the street.
If this isn’t at least a bit douchey, then wat is?
Your first picture should always show just your head and torso.
The image you see here is the original file. On Tinder we cropped off the legs. I’ll show you in a bit.
One thing I really don’t like about this photo is that you can’t see my eyes.
Always show your eyes in your first photo.
I figured this lack of eye visibility would decrease our matches. So we discussed going for this Tinder photo instead:
Bam. Direct eye contact with the lens (or the girl looking at your profile).
The problem here is that direct eye contact works better when smiling.
And although I have something on my face that looks like a poverty attempt at a smile, it’s just not gonna cut it.
So we did some quick test and opted for photo number 1 instead.
I wouldn’t say this is an Æssh0le photo per se.
But it does have a bad boy vibe to it.
There’s a pretty badass-looking electric guitar in a dimly lit bar.
A guitar that I’m pretending to tune, because I have no idea how to either play or tune an instrument.
I’m having a bit of a frown on my face to make me look all focused and critical.
And lastly, we’re flashing a bit of the tattoo on my arm in hopes to have the photo look a tad rougher.
I just have to laugh every time I see this picture.
It’s so over the top.
It’s a naked man being showered in bank notes while flexing his bicep. Wearing flashy sunglasses INSIDE.
I advise you to never make a photo like this for your profile.
But we really wanted to include this mega obnoxious picture. Just to really cement the idea that this guy is a gigantic douchenozzle.
We later found that this photo would have a strong impact on the final results of this Tinder experiment.
My god. I’m not sure which photo is most unsavory. The cash shower or this gym pic?
Don’t get me wrong: working out is great and I recommend anyone to hit the weights. Not only for the obvious health benefits but also for your dating life. Both offline and online.
If you have an athletic body you’re proud of, then showcase it in an artsy or “organic” setting (swimming or playing at the beach for example).
Never in an over-posed gym pic like this one, or a mirror selfie.
This picture with the angry stare, the tight tank top, and the shoulder veins popping out, is a no go. It’s everything most women don’t want to see on your Tinder profile.
Phew, that’s enough braggy pictures for one day. Let’s have a look at the other guy!
Step 3: Shooting the photos for the Nice Guy
Chances are you see yourself more as a nice guy than a bad boy. If this is the case, then this profile could hold some valuable lessons for you.
So let’s look at the Bad boy’s opponent.
When deciding on his name we had a couple options again:
The Nice guy? The Good guy? The Gentleman?
We’re going to call him the Nice Guy but we want him to exhibit a bit of all of those labels.
Let’s have a look at his first pic.
Bang bang bang!
I like this photo for Tinder.
- It has a warm and trustworthy vibe.
- There’s sort of a smile.
- It genuinely looks like a nice guy.
Besides, there’s a coffee and an (art) book. Two things that most women like.
The crop isn’t perfect yet, but again: this is the original photo. On my Tinder profile we adjusted this.
With this photo as well, we considered an alternative:
Personally, I think this one is more attractive. It just seems more genuine.
But it doesn’t fit the good guy vibe as nicely.
When looking at both pictures, the coaches and I agreed that the first photo looks friendlier. And is therefore more fitting for this Tinder experiment.
The color scheme used for this photo is called ‘Teal Magenta’. It’s a filter used in many movies.
Its popularity comes and goes on Instagram.
It’s not as badass as an electric guitar.
It’s the smaller, more innocent version: the ukulele.
We added this photo to give the good guy some extra character.
As long as people don’t identify this photo with annoying people singing ‘Wonderwall’ around a campfire, we’re good.
It’s a man on a bike.
I don’t know about you, but we associate transportation by bike with being eco-friendly.
We figured our nice guy could have one photo on a bike. With a nice fountain in the back. What a cozy guy.
It’s not a picture I’d ever select myself to go on my dating profile. But you’ll soon find out if it performed well or not.
One detail I’d like to see different, is the eyes again. They’re hidden in the shadow. If they were visible, the photo would exude more trustworthiness.
By far my favorite nice guy photo.
Is it your favorite as well?
It’s really hard for me to smile in a photo. But somehow it really worked well here.
Maybe because Meatballs (the fluffy creature on my back) was with me. Arguably one of the best cats in the world.
If you have the option to have a photo with an animal in your profile, use it.
Eye contact with the camera while showing a big smile is one of your most powerful weapons.
That was the 4th and last good guy photo.
Step 4: Creating the profiles
Let’s have a look at both completed profiles:
The Bad boy vs The Nice guy.
Now before we make these profiles visible and have them compete for matches, we need a Tinder bio for each of them.
I gave the Bad boy this one:
“Most likely out of your league but hey, every shot you don’t take is a shot you miss.”
The nice guy went with:
“I like squirrels.”
Inspired by the legendary meme in this video:
But I don’t like turtles, we had some in primary school and one bit me.
I like squirrels. I really do.
So we went with that.
Alright. Those are both bios.
Now we’re ready to see who gets the most right swipes.
Place your bets! Who do you think will collect most matches?
Type your answer in the comments and don’t you dare cheat!
Step 5: Going live in two cities and gathering matches
The results were quite shocking. I honestly didn’t see this coming.
Here’s how we measured the popularity of both the characters from our experiment.
We used two accounts.
Mine coach Daniel’s.
And we both subscribed to Tinder Gold. Here’s why:
- Same ELO-score.
- Passport function to test them in the same cities.
- Tinder Gold’s “Likes You” function shows you everyone that swiped you right.
Especially the last function is crucial for us. It lets us see exactly how many likes we got and from who, so we could turn them all into matches.
Coach Dan and I agreed on going live in two cities: New York and London.
The Big Apple was first.
We activated our profiles at the same time… and then we waited.
Which profile would get liked in NYC 100 times first?
The mothatrucking Nice Guy! By the time the Nice Guy won, the Bad Boy was resting at a healthy but skimpy 70 likes.
Quite a big difference.
My coaches and I were a bit surprised.
Especially since in Leena D’s video, the Fckboi performed way better than the nice guy.
Then we ran the same Tinder experiment in London.
(By the way, I wrote a whole guide about Tinder in London.)
Interestingly, the results were very different this time.
Not that the Bad Boy suddenly outperformed the Nice Guy.
Quite the opposite: the Nice Guy made the Bad Boy look like a joke. When the Nice Guy raced by the 100 Like benchmark, the Bad Boy was at the embarrassingly low number of 44 likes!
That means the Nice Guy did TWICE as good as the Bad Boy in London.
A rough K.O. for the douchebag.
Now, of course, we can’t say exactly why one profile outperformed the other so badly.
But we can make a few calculated assumptions.
One is that the Āsshole never makes eye contact. Not in a single photo.
Another one is that the cash shower and the gym photo are TOO much.
Going over the top can often be beneficial.
But only to a certain extent.
If you scroll up a bit and look at the comparison of both profiles, it’s hard to feel sympathy for the left guy. Whereas the right guy seems more fun to be around.
This experiment also shows that money and muscles aren’t always a good thing online. And they’re not needed to get some matches.
Now let’s go to the final part of this Tinder social experiment.
Step 6: Finding out who women wanted to sleep with more
Our original idea was just to find out if Bad Boys or Nice Guys did better on Tinder.
But we wanted to have a little more fun.
Especially since we had so many matches to talk to.
So in the name of science, we took the challenge upon us to see which of our two heroes could get the most action on Tinder.
And all they could do is send ONE TEXT.
The results were quite interesting.
(Even though there are much better ways to getting laid on Tinder.)
Let’s look at some screenshots of the replies:
So I continued:
Most women weren’t amused with this line.
Not that I expected anything else from a tasteless, uncalibrated, sexual opener.
Needless to say, many girls didn’t bother responding.
But showing you 100 screenshots of “You’re cute, let’s bang”, would be über boring.
A facepalm is a pretty good summary of most replies.
This lady wasn’t the banging type.
The next lady on the other hand, does like some sort of banging:
Hey, at least this woman generates fun out of a miserable situation!
Hahaha “Work a little for this pussy”. Genius.
Now, some women seemed a little more adventurous, but, just like this last screenshot said, needed a bit more wooing.
“Just one hundred”, on each account.
That was one of my favorite replies in this whole Tinder experiment.
Hey at least we didn’t get ignored here.
Even the girls that opened with a compliment weren’t going to instantly agree to some “banging”.
(This girl calls me Daan (Dan) because she was talking to the Nice guy profile on my friend Dan’s phone.)
Oh, guess who’s back?
Apparently, her friend did find the offer appealing.
Now just because someone says they are interested doesn’t mean it’s actually happening. There’s still plenty of time and space to fuck up before you actually get to bangerang.
Ah, finally someone that does appreciate our romantic offer.
Did this happen just once?
Nope, here’s a second lady ready for a spontaneous adventure.
You go girl, you do whatever you like!
And last but not least:
Apparently, New York City isn’t big enough for 2 Louis.
Now it’s time for a beautiful, deep, and philosophical conclusion.
Getting your Tinder match out on a date can be pretty difficult if you don’t know what to talk about.
That’s why I wanted to make things a little easier for you.
I gathered my 10 best texts and put them in a goodie bag, especially for you.
Use them to get her excited about you and set up the date.
Step 6: Concluding our Tinder Experiment
You saw some screenshots of women saying no, others needing a little bit more effort, and a few that were ready to go.
So you might feel the urge to go around asking women for sex too. After all, if you send enough, you’ll probably find someone who wants to jump in bed with you.
Resist that urge.
First of all, one of the accounts got banned from Tinder because of this social experiment.
RIP Nice Guy Louis. May he rest in peace.
Secondly, the percentage of girls agreeing to this proposal was ridiculously low. Plus, they weren’t the most high-quality women.
The most desirable women have plenty of options. And they aren’t easily persuaded to take a ride on your meatstick.
I hope you found this Tinder experiment as enlightening as I did.
