Online dating sites like Tinder and Plenty of Fish make it easy to meet people for booty calls, 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.

Put me in a movie.
Paint me like one of your french girls.
Put me on your blog.
Those are the first things I thought of when I got this message. Of course, I laughed, but I know this was about rudeness, not humor.
I know in the grand scheme of things, this is no big deal. But as some of you know, one of the reasons I started this blog, and this series, was to bring awareness to how rude people can be when they forget they’re talking to a real person over that phone. So if I left this alone, I would have been ignoring ~my purpose.~ But y’know, who knows? Maybe this isn’t a matter of internet rudeness. He says he’s a doctor in the making, so maybe he’s just one of those who will have terrible bedside manner.
Of course, the psychologist in me also had a say in my posting this. He performed the behavior I wanted by asking nicely, so I gave him a positive reinforcement by posting it.
@B.F. Skinner and John Watson– are you proud of where your theory has gone?
