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.

I dunno, maybe this is a me-thing, but when I put on my profile that I’m looking for a relationship, I’m not really DTF???
This guy actually got really mad at me for what I said, and told me he guessed I couldn’t handle all his manliness. (I should’ve said ‘yes, you are manliness.’) I understand that he might’ve been embarrassed that he put himself out there and I wasn’t interested. And I was pretty snarky. (Can’t help it; it’s who I am.)
But GUYS. BE SMART ABOUT THIS.
If a girl says she’s looking for a relationship, why message her something crude and sexual? That’s obviously not what she’s looking for. And if you didn’t look at what I was looking for before you messaged me, shame on you. My negative response is NOT bad luck, or a result of me being a bitch, or crazy, or a prude, etc. It’s a result of you not caring enough about what I want. That, my “eight-inch” friend, is not a me-thing. That is a you-thing.
