A tinder issue

This feels like a very strange question to ask as I can't figure out if the issue is technical or personal. I will try to explain, however.

I downloaded the tinder app admittedly not *too* long ago, but long enough. I am not on it all the time, but not infrequently either. I have selected the option to have both males and females shown and be shown to me. After a few weeks of moderate usage, I have matched with 118 males and zero females... so maybe males like me better, but this statistic seems somewhat unbelievable. I am shown both females and males, and the vast majority of the times I give a positive response to a male, I am immediately told he selected me as well and we are a match. That happens literally never with females. I am sort of stumped as to what is going on. I guess I am a lipstick... bisexual, so maybe girls just don't respond to that on there as positively as they do in my real life interactions, which are numerous and usually mutual, but I just cant see that there would be a zero percent response rate from females with 118 matches with males in a week or two. I do not state my sexual orientation in my profile, so I don't think this is about men liking the threesome fantasy and/or women being scared off by thinking I have a boyfriend who has a threesome fantasy. So is my app doing something wrong, or am I? I don't even know whether to put this under computers & internet or human relations...
