In last week’s article, I posted about an experiment that my friend Sarah and I conducted called The Tinder Test. If you missed it, you can read it here.
Some guys really tried their hardest to catch the attention of Charlotte and Carrie (the two separate profiles that we created), whether that was by using creative pick-up lines or offering to take them on vacation. These were some of the best messages we received!
1.The Literary Reference
As an English major, I loved these Charlotte’s Web references. I think they were clever!
2. The Irritated Guy/Guys
This was really weird. Some of the matches did catch on to the two different profiles, but most of them just blew it off and didn’t seem to care. This young man and his friend took it in a whole other direction and to a whole new level. Plus, their spelling was awful.
P.S. We received the same exact message from his friend, I just didn’t save the conversation.
3. The Nice Guy
This gentleman also recognized the two profiles, but instead of “calling the cops” he was calm and polite about it. Sarah and I were appreciative of his kindness and actually responded to him, letting him know that the profiles were technically real but we were doing an experiment for class.
4. The Guys Who Got “Carried” Away
Name puns which made us cringe, and them cringe retroactively.
5. The Paris Invitations
I don’t get why so many people offered to take Carrie to Paris. I guess maybe they were referencing Sex and the City when the main character, Carrie, goes to Paris, but I don’t think a lot of men ages 19-25 would understand that reference. I might be wrong though.
