Dating apps are a minefield, especially for women. I can only imagine that attempting to successfully use a dating app to strike up a meaningful conversation with a man is akin to staggering across a rickety bridge over crocodile-infested waters. Such is the archetype of the male; a libido-driven species prone to unsolicited pictures of their anatomy and abs, incapable of conducting a conversation with the fairer sex without a blunt request for “nudes”.
Of course, this isn’t always the case. There are plenty of men out there perfectly capable of stringing together a sentence without resorting to sexual harassment. Regardless, for both sexes, dating apps can be a tricky and fruitless pursuit. Perhaps in recognition of that fact, maybe just for a bit of fun, here are some women who have turned the tables on their lusty counterparts to hilarious effect.
1. How to kill the vibe instantly
How not to get off on the right foot:
2. Not quite what he had in mind
Why do guys think they can do this?
3. So, so cold
Seriously, who are you to judge?
4. A masterclass in trolling
Pathetic scumbag is perfectly trolled.
5. A cure for the d*ck-pic epidemic?
If only this was possible…
Seriously guys, just don’t send pictures of your penis to people. No woman has ever appreciated it and gone on to marry the man.
6. When double standards meet sexting
Maybe now he’ll realize it’s unacceptable.
7. “I do and bum”
Put down with literal logic…
8. Fighting prejudice with condiments
Honestly, how do chat up lines like this ever lead to sex? Oh yeah, they don’t…
For me, these messages are the equivalent of builders wolf-whistling and catcalling women as they walk down the street. Seriously, has doing that ever led to sex?
9. When pets are in on the prank
The more I read through these, the more I hate the fact that I’m a man…
10. Pretending to love anime to fire up nerds
Fanboys getting butthurt…
11. So. Damn. Sassy.
Get this guy to the burn ward!
12. When all else fails, let Carly Rae Jepsen do the talking
It’s the perfect penis repellent…
A collection of men who got taught a valuable and much-needed lesson by these women. Here’s hoping they learned from these chastening experiences and honed their dating game to a more refined level.
Personally, I’m not confident. But if you’re on the lookout for romance, and want to distance yourself from some of these creeps, then do yourself a favour and consider checking out this new dating app that’s already set to leave Tinder behind in the dust.
