There may not be enough people in your area who meet all of your specific requirements in a match. Oftentimes, dating apps will broaden the match area when they can’t find anyone else locally who meets all of your requirements.
If you reduce the amount of requirements, it could lead to receiving more matches from your local area. Think about some requirements that aren’t that important in a match. Get rid of those and see if there are any changes in distance when it comes to the matches you receive.
