Men on Tinder get a Taste of their Own Medicine

I’m not making a generalization here, but most men (emphasis on most), turn into slimy creepers when they talk to a woman through a dating app. There are many websites out there dedicated to the creepy things that some men say to women while trying to get to know them. The dating app, Tinder, is no different. Gianfrancesco Genoso said that hiding behind a screen and being nearly anonymous I guess gives the person on the other end the confidence (or stupidity) to say whatever comes to their mind. One programmer has decided to change things up a little and give men a taste of their own medicine.

According to the story on BuzzFeed.com, a programmer decided to reprogram Tinder a bit. He had heard from many of his female friends the type of things that men would say to pick them up and turned the tables on them. He created a fake profile that he used as the “bait” profile. Straight men who swiped right on the profile and messaged it were matched with each other, all while each was thinking they were talking to the girl in the bait profile. The conversations are hilarious.

The programmer did think ahead. Any time that the two messaging each other attempted to exchange phone numbers they would be scrambled and if they discussed meeting up, the conversation would be cut-off. At least this way no one could be too surprised in person!
