Aside from the Super Like feature, I’m not a huge fan of this app, but many people today swear by it. I’m talking about the Tinder app. Guess what, if you didn’t know by now, Tinder is a very popular hookup app that involves connecting you with people in your area. You swipe right if you like someone and swipe left if you don’t.
When two people swipe right on each other, they can exchange messages. Some messages are better than others. If you say the right thing, and grab their interest, you might end up hooking up. If you say the wrong thing, you could prompt them to change their mind about you and swipe left.
There are a few things that you’ll never want to say when using Tinder or any other dating app for that matter. I’ll do my best to try and give you some pointers here on what to say and what to avoid saying!
7 Things To Never Say While Using Tinder
Well, here is a list of what NOT to say on Tinder to avoid being added to their no-contact list. If you want to avoid being blocked, then pay very close attention, my friend.
I’m literally rolling my eyes as you read this. Form a message that looks like you put more than a second into it. A one-word message makes them think you’re not really interested and you are just messaging as many girls as you can to see who answers.
“Can I cover you in peanut butter and lick it off?”
What are you a psychopath or something? No one is going to go for a line like this unless they have a certain sense of humor. This doesn’t come off as clever at all. It comes off as desperate and perverted.
“You got a library card? Cause I’ve been checking you out.”
Turn your nerdiness of please for once for gosh sakes. I know, some girls are a sucker for cheesiness, but not that many of them. If you send out corny lines, don’t be surprised if you don’t get a response.
“I had a dream that I was standing near a coffin. I looked inside and it was you.”
Believe it or not; this is an example of a real message sent on Tinder. Don’t say anything even remotely involving their death or them being attacked or harmed in any way. No matter what your intention, you will be viewed as the weird Tinder stalker that everyone should avoid.
“Hey, how are you doing this fine evening? Sure would be nice if you would answer. If you were just going to ignore me, why swipe right?”
Do not waste your time on a series of messages like this. If you message someone and they do not answer, do not write them again. You come off as a needy loser and you’re doing nothing but wasting your time and getting yourself worked up over something that is beyond your control.
“Your so cute. We shuld go get cawfee sometime.”
You don’t have to be a spelling bee champion to message someone on Tinder, but you should at least be able to put together a sentence using simple words without a bunch of spelling and grammar errors.
Everyone is going to misspell a word or two here or there but you are not represented very well if you can’t get through a single message without glaring errors. Maybe a messaging app is not for you.
“I thought Trump was going to drain the swamp, but all he did was fill it with more alligators.”
The last thing you want to do is get political on your first message. Even if she agrees with you, political conversation is likely to turn her off. You don’t have to steer clear of politics altogether, but it’s more of a topic that is brought up once the conversation gets going.
These are all simple things that you should most definitely never say on any dating app, especially Tinder. In fact, I don’t care if you’re using the Mingle2 app, Snap Sext, or Badoo. The same rules apply and you should not be sending stupid messages to anyone. Don’t be a waste of time, please!
