How much fun is Berlin if you’re still talking on New York Tinder tho?
2. This Confused Guy

3. This Kewl Dude

4. This Emoji Appreciator
5. This Guy Who Clocked Me
6. This Thinker

7. This Guy Who Was Game
To be fair, I don’t think I’d respond to a guy texting me “I am the blood of the dragon” with crying emojis, so good for him.
8. This Guy Who Had a LINE
Disappointed he never responded!
9. This Latin Expert Who Didn’t Know How to Use “You’re” Correctly
10. This Guy Who Had as Good an Attitude as Any
At the end of my experiment, I was pleased to learn that the majority of guys out there are still willing to volley a conversation back and forth even if your opening line is as wild as “I am the blood of the dragon.” As for the other guys, I’m just gonna tell myself they didn’t respond because they were intimidated by the Khaleesi vibes I was giving off.
