How can you pack cute and clever into a first message?
In theory, finding a significant other is simple. First you have to find someone that’s single, then you have to like them and they have to like you back. If you make it that far, you go on what’s usually an awkward first date. That date can make or break whatever you had going with that person (once you get to know them better).
At least, that’s how dating was before the Internet. While some people are against online dating, apps like Bumble, Tinder, and OkCupid are pretty commonplace. It’s a great way to find singles in your area that you may not have been able to meet otherwise.
But that doesn’t mean that you’ll find your match made in Heaven on Tinder. Your carefully-crafted pick-up line might just turn the potential partners against you. But it does make for awesome reading material. If you haven’t tried out online dating, here’s what you’re likely to see.
“Did you buy your tickets yet?”
“To the gun show”
“What? No, for my public trial. I’m going to jail.”
“Because you don’t eat them”
“FOR HAVING THESE SICK PYTHONS (bicep emojis)”
Meet my advisor
“Woah I’m a phd student too. Let’s b**ch about our advisors sometime”
“I see that you like reading messages but not responding to them. I should set you up with my advisor.”
