YAAAAAS! LOL WTF AWWW

I tried to get a date on Tinder using only Little Mix and 1D lyrics. Which one was more successful?

Let’s face it, we all have a love/hate relationship with Tinder. I’m sure that, like me, 99% of its users go through a constant cycle of deleting and redownloading (aka “crawling back”) when they are either bored or lonely *dies a little inside*…

Tinder has more than 50 million users every month and creates 12 million matches from over one billion swipes per day. Those stats look great on paper, but when I redownloaded Tinder I forgot the most annoying thing about it – those impossible people who match but never, EVER speak.

I decided to shake up my approach to online dating. But how could I stand out from the millions of users and show my personality at the same time? Then it hit me like a sledgehammer…

I could use lyrics from my favourite two pop groups, Little Mix and 1D, to get dates!

Now, I know what you’re thinking – that’s ridiculous, but listen to the advantages:

  • It’s a fun, different and eye-catching way to start a conversation, much better than the usual “heys” and “how are yous”,
  • It’s  stands out in your inbox.
  • It helps weed out the people who wouldn’t be able to stand my fanboying right from the word go.

I kicked things off with a few of my favourite One Direction lyrics…

Attempt number one:

Attempt number two:

Hmmm no luck there, but would Little Mix have any more success…?

How ya doin’, bro?

You have… no messages.

Back to 1D,  I thought I’d try to catch a Charizard using a bit of ‘Drag Me Down’…

EPIC FAIL! But at least I got a reply this time, so I decided to soldier on.

‘What Makes You Beautiful’ is a classic, it HAD to work.

YES SIMBA! YOU LIT UP MY WHOLE WORLD! THANK YOU FOR PLAYING ALONG!

Then the messages started coming thick and fast. Turns out Homer Simpson loves a bit of Little Mix, the saucy devil.

I was gaining the momentum of a runaway train and I was unstoppable!

AND GUESS WHAT? I GOT A DATE WITH PIKACHU! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED THANKS TO LM AND 1D!
