If you are a man and haven’t received a response from women on dating apps, you might want to think where you went wrong. British comedian Sy Thomas decided to experiment on what women go through by disguising as a woman on Tinder.
“I am a single man growing increasingly frustrated with online dating- it got me thinking: what if I was a woman? Maybe I’d learn techniques from the men who are trying to woo me,” he says in his video.
Thomas got a makeover, quite a visible one. Clicked a ‘nice-looking’ profile picture, made a profile of a girl named Simone and viola! Three days later, he had already received over 400 messages which indeed were an eye-opener for Thomas.
They started with ‘Hi’ and ‘You are beautiful’ and eventually lead to messages filled with dirt and filth. “A lot of these opening messages, you’d never say that to someone in a bar. The best messages are the ones that are genuine,” he says.
