As I mentioned in my previous blog post, online dating sites like Tinder, Plenty of Fish, and OKCupid make it easy to meet people for hookups, relationships, and more. However, the easy nature of dating services also makes it easy to lose sight of the actual person on the other end of your pickup lines. The Tinder Files are a collection of great and terrible pickup lines that I’ll be posting at the end of every month. They are my attempt to hold people accountable for what they say on social media. And sometimes they’re really freakin’ funny.

I post the totally inappropriate and gross pickup lines, in hopes it’ll become less acceptable to treat people like sex objects. I post the ones that don’t make sense, because even someone you’re just looking for casual sex with deserves a proofread message. And bro, it’s just not good for your game if your “hey” actually comes out as “gey.” But of course, I’ll also post the funny, the sweet, and the fantastically clever. Because in the midst of all that negativity, we need to remember that the romantics are out there, too. Somewhere. In a deep dark hole.

Like I said in the last post, I have some rules I’m following in an attempt to not be a total jerk. I’ll never make fun of anyone’s appearance, race, ethnicity, etc. This is not about me being too good for the people I post about, it’s about re-creating a healthy dating culture. And sometimes laughing. I’ll also never put anyone down who seemed to have good intentions– I know how hard it is to put yourself out there. I will also cover up any glaring identifying features, like real names and locations. Don’t wanna be sued for slander even though all’a y’all’s mamas warned you about what happens when you post things on the internet.

So, without further ado, here’s this month’s edition of the Tinder Files.

1. A Shot of Love

This first pickup line might’ve been the first unbearable thing that happened in that unspeakable year we just left. And, did he mean a shot AT love? Or did I win like, a shot glass full of love?

2. Psych Major or Psychic?

Am I a psych major, or a psychic? Meh, they’re interchangeable. Y’know, this is why people don’t get mental health treatment. They think therapists are reading their minds.

R.I.P. Harambe, you will be meme– I mean missed — for years to come.
