Online dating sites like Tinder and Plenty of Fish make it easy to meet people for hookups, relationships, and more. However, the easy nature of dating services also makes it easy to almost lose sight of the actual person on the other end of your messages. The Tinder Files are my attempt to hold people accountable for what they say on social media. I post totally inappropriate and gross pickup lines, hoping it becomes less acceptable to treat people like sex objects. I post the ones that don’t make sense, because even someone you want casual sex with deserves a proofread message. And bro, it’s just not good for your game if your “hey” actually comes out as “gey.” However, I also post the super cute ones, because in the midst of all that negativity, we need to remember the romantics are out there, too.
Check out my first TF post to see my rules.
~ Almost Really Cute ~
I am more than a little annoyed by this message. What kind of pompous ego-maniac messages a girl to tell her she’s almost really cute, kinda pretty and that she has potential? I can only hope that there was a punch line to this that I didn’t stick around for. Otherwise, this one belongs in the hall of shame for highest level of douchebaggery.
Judging by the fact that one of his interests is “woman,” I think he’s just a god-damn caveman with no idea how to communicate with the other half of humankind. In this case, I wish him good luck unscrambling that whole “fire” thing and the “wheel” contraption.
I’m not sure if this was meant to be a joke, but it was not received well by me. Do you guys think he was kidding, or do you think he was really telling me that I was just okay?
