This Is What Happens When A Girl Uses Tinder Like Guys Do
There are some very particular stereotypes about how men and women use tinder and we realise that they are in fact just that, stereotypes. Of course there are exceptions to the rule, but just for fun we talked one of our female writers into having a masculine Tinder make-over, and tweak her tinder technique.
And by tweak, we mean completely 100% change it. We used online guides for men to decide which pictures she should go for, and changed her bio (and made sure we included her height and the phrase ‘willing to lie about where we met’, of course). Then we consulted the hoards of successful (kind of) examples of male opening lines, and tested those out for size.
One word: Lad

You’re a wizard, James

Don’t look down!
If all else fails, go for the generically dull male conversation starter. Guaranteed to open up an awkward and entirely non-flirty nor fun conversation that will inevitably fizzle out and die
