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.
~ The Finer Things ~
SMOOTH AS A BABY’S BOTTOM MY FRIENDS.
I love this pickup line, and I also love his business-like approach to the online dating scene. He’s dressed all nice in his little suit and tie, and his tagline says “inquire here.” I love it. He probably wears a heck of a lot of Vineyard Vines and is set to take over his daddy’s place at the law firm. Unfortunately, he only had one photo, so I had to auto-nope him. I wasn’t attracted to the one picture he did post, but I give his approach a solid 7/10.
In case anyone was wondering what I would have said in this interview, I think the finer things in life can be boiled down to three things: Dunkin Donuts iced coffee, bread with a crispy outside and fluffy inside, and witty men.
