In the middle of my swipe-fest, Tinder intervenes with the electronic equivalent of a chastity belt. It appears I am too promiscuous for the most notorious hook-up app in the land. Even the ones with aggressive amounts of question marks.Even the ones who don’t know when to use capital letters or the difference between there, their and they’re.[Read: 12 easy ways to appear a lot more desirable in his eyes] Impress his friends Whenever you get to meet a good friend of his or bump into his group of friends, stay a while and chat with them.Be warm and sweet, and at times, even border on mild flirting.I had come to the party at the invitation of a Handy PR rep and was making the rounds, introducing myself as a journalist and chatting with employees.
I’m quite grateful to the men too busy, shy or just not into me enough to want to message. [Read: 9 sneaky and fun ways to get a guy to ask you out in no time] Guys and their mind Through the ages, men have always taken great risks to take what they want, be it glory, land, food or women, not necessarily in that order. Instead of telling him that you like him very much, why not get the guy to like you and ask you out instead?!So, to prove I’m really not picky I decided to swipe right to EVERY man on Tinder for a week. It’s like having a bodyguard who puts a hand on unwanted suitors’ shoulders and says ‘the lady said no’. As I drive to work I hear several little pings meaning new messages and feel a mixture of pleasure and guilt. Still, I have 43 matches and seven messages before 9am.On the plus side, I never message men first, so maybe swiping right on them all won’t make much difference. I get up early and spend a good half hour swiping right to, among others, two tattooed body parts (no face pics, just arms and shins), three football logos (I don’t watch sport) and a cute guy with a leopard (okay, he’ll do). TUESDAY In keeping with the ‘swipe right’ mentality of the experiment, I reply to all the messages I get this week. So instead of leaving your love lines to fate and chance, it’s always better to step it up a notch and do something else.
