I Used Guys' Awful Opening Messages On Tinder, And Here's How People Responded
If you're a woman with a Tinder account, there's an approximate 99.9 percent chance that you've received an opening message that made your skin crawl — courtesy of some Tinder guy who thought that all he had to do in order to get laid on this app was to, well, explicitly say so.
If you've never had the pleasure (or displeasure) of using Tinder, allow me to enlighten you on how it works. You swipe left and right on photos of guys doing some of the most bizarre activities imaginable — posing with lions, sitting atop a pile of stuffed animals, peeking out from behind their pet (Spoiler: the pet is usually cuter than the guy posing behind it). If you both like each other, you'll be able to send each other messages. Most of your matches won't though, but they'll like your "moments." Which are kind of like the more attention seeking version of Snapchat stories. And the ones that do talk to you, well...
They come up with some pretty wild, inappropriate, downright gross pickup lines that could keep a girl without a thick skin awake at night. So, what better way to get some revenge than to send the worst pickup lines I've ever come across back to my other unsuspecting matches to see how they'd react.
I won't spoil the responses for you, because you really have to see them to believe that people like this actually exist. But overall, I've learned that there's absolutely nothing that you can't get away with saying on this app.
