Hopping on your friend’s Facebook to post a status about how he has just had intimate relations with the dog is so old hat; everyone knows it’s a ‘Frape’ anyway, so why bother? Getting hold of their Tinder is much more interesting… and weirdly enough, you can actually learn a few things.
While everyone on [insert unfortunate friend’s name here] Facebook will know them and whatever you do on there is probably not them, these Tinder matches on the other hand won’t have a clue. Evidentially they’re attracted to your mate as they matched with him, but as for personality and background, that’s a blank canvas ready to paint however you want.
So before your friend returns from the toilet and nabs his phone back, here are 8 things to do (and learn) on their account… or even your own if you have the nuts/are that bored and reckless…
Opening lines are everything – and you have nothing to lose here so why would you go for the “Hey :) How are you?” opening line that the girl inevitably gets all day – every day. Be a maverick. Throw her a curve ball. Hell, compare her to snooker referee Michaela Tabb and see how it goes!
Seeing how it goes is another major point. Test out different angles with your opening lines. See what does and doesn’t work. Little tip: Opening with professional wrestling doesn’t work…
But there’s no harm in trying it more than once:
Why not? Everyone’s different, but we’re still yet to learn whether or not Nicola has been powerbombed.
Who doesn’t like a man of mystery? Women want someone that isn’t a completely open book. What is there to fight for?
In this case this ‘mystery’ is sheer confusion, but it’s the same thing, right?
Tinder conversations are about finding your way with this new person and letting the best parts of your personality shine through – so it’s time to see what interests these women…
The main thing to actually learn in-between all the juvenile laughing and talking about the good old days of wrestling, is that being different is best. Sometimes on Tinder you can feel like you’re having the exact same conversation with about 10 different people…
“Hey, how’re you”
“I’m good thanks :) How are you?”
“Great :) How was your day?”
“Really nice thank you. Yours?”
And so on... How boring. Maybe don’t borrow from these examples but stand out from the crowd and make her want to talk to you. Make her laugh. Keep her guessing. Be different – because it works.
Thank you to my friend James for actually allowing me and a few others to completely decimate his Tinder for about 2 hours before a night out… If your friend isn’t that nice, just distract him. It's worth it.
