Skout the most fake / flakiest dating app?!?
I swear this has to be the most worthless dating app ive ever seen. Been using it since Korea (attempting) so about 4-5 countries now and I have yet to meet a girl off there. Hell, getting a reply is hard as fuck much less actually meeting up.

Anyone have the same experience?

RE: Skout the most fake / flakiest dating app?!?
I have been using Skout for about a month now, placed myself in hk. Been getting between 5-10 messages a day, although due to my work right now I didn't have time to respond to any of them yet. I'll have some time off by next week, then I'll take a closer look at it.
I hope you are wrong thou, it seems like a cool app.

What do you think of the alternatives, like QQ chat, wechat, badoo and others?

Seems like Tinder. Too much flaking and time wasters on there.

RE: Skout the most fake / flakiest dating app?!?
I can't speak much for other countries, but most online dating sites in the US are numbers games in my opinion. There are a lot of success stories, but a lot of challenges that go with it.

The larger the city, the more difficult by sheer volume. Ever see a hot girl's phone in a major city in like LA or NYC? Tons of unread texts, emails, etc. Multiply that number for online.

Just by sheer convenience, guys can message a hundred girls in less than an hour if they want. Of those, a lot of those guys are creepy, triggering a major bitch shield/filtration when girls receive messages.

I am playing with Skout now. A few things to consider, some which I am still testing:

- Try a smaller city (or outlying neighborhoods/cities if in a major one). For example, I have way more luck getting responses from the Santa Clarita Valley than I do Los Angeles.

- Work on a opener that differentiates you (same as approaching a hot girl in the bar). They have a hundred "hi" "hello" "you're hot" messages in their inbox. If they're pinays, I open with "Kumasta", or take something from their profile and ask about it. I've even targeted a specific area, specifically saying "Meet me at X bar for drinks" and got decent responses.

- Try to DHV in your profile with pics and words. I see a lot of girls check my profile after I message them, and then never respond. I am still working on something to hook them to get a convo going.

- If they respond, I try to build comfort quickly and then say "I don't like Skout chat, let's text." Then I say, "Let's meet up somewhere well lit for my safety".

At the end of the day, due to many reluctance with online, mass messages, creeps, etc...I would think you still need to expect a number of non-responses no matter how good your hook is.

PS. In LA, read the info carefully for Asians. I saw an odd number of transsexual/transgenders.

Any other tips or success stories out there?

RE: Skout the most fake / flakiest dating app?!?
I used skout for 3 weeks while I was in manila and met up with 3 girls, one of which was very cute http://bodoggirls.com/live-dealers/trina/ (She is an online casino dealer and here is a link to her photo-shoot). I could have meet up with 2 more, but I had to say no to one because I didn't have time and no to another because she said she wanted 2,000 php for sex. Skout was good to me, the only negative was in manila there is alot of transsexuals..... but every time I asked if they were a lady-boy they were cool about saying they were. I can promise you in manila skout is awesome!

Skout PI seems to have a lot of ladyboys. I didn't try to use it for more than an evening, would rather pay $1 per day for FC.

Online dating site become more popular, however, if you joined in that site beware and be careful in meeting someone. Make sure to meet up in a public place instead of the private one. Aside from online dating, there is a new launch Cupidtino from iPhone applications. Source of article: Apple lovers dating site Cupidtino launches iPhone app

You have to realize that the majority of appealing "people" on all online dating sites aren't even real people. They are artifical fake accounts which were created to drive traffic to the site.

RE: Skout the most fake / flakiest dating app?!?
all dating apps suck imo

whoever said they are full of time wasters was spot on....... its a bunch of girls who are bored at work or bored laying in their bed doing nothing that want some attention from boys

sure, you can end up hooking up with girls off them from time to time, but you will get a much better return on your time investment on places like DIA where you can just ask for a girls number after a couple messages...... on skout/tinder girls seem a lot slower to give out there number and actually meet up

i got my first smart phone 4 months ago (sick brag) and was on skout/tinder all the time for 6 weeks...... i havent even turned the phone on for 2 months because when i do i just have pointless chats with time wasters instead of focusing on a football game or tv show


they really are the worst way to try and meet girls here imo

RE: Skout the most fake / flakiest dating app?!?
I use skout in thailand. The women aren't that great looking but they will move fast. Generally once a month I'll put 2 hard days in on skout, dateinasia, and tagged getting as many as I can to line app. Then I work it from there. There are ladyboys, so be careful. The feature I like most is the locater, you can search "close to me" and search results show distance from you for each woman. I once met a chick in the building next to mine. Of course except for her I never tell them I have a permanate residence and one of the first things I try and find out is if they live alone so I know how to play it, obviously putting heavy emphasis on the bitches with solo pads.

I've gotten laid off skout in china plenty a time.

In Hong Kong and Korea, it's fucking useless unless you've got model tier looks or something. Wonder how it stacks up in Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and the Phils.
