I tried the Dating Hacks app using Bumble, lauded as feminist-friendly because women must make the first move by messaging a new connection before the match disappears after 24 hours.
A cheesy pick-up line or a douchey comment makes you look like an arse. Some inexplicable opening lines include, “I bet you suck at tennis,” and “My parents are so excited, they can’t wait to meet you! ” Dating Hacks works as its own keyboard with Tinder, Ok Cupid, Hinge, POF, Match, Bumble, Grindr, Coffee Meets Bagel and more, along with text messages.” Other are more direct: “You look so cute you make me want to knit matching sweaters for both of us,” and “This app brought us together for a reason and that reason is babies.” Regulars on the app scene will recognize some of the classics, including “Should we tell our future kids that we met on here? If someone has all of those apps downloaded, or at least half of them, it’s understandable they’re having trouble coming up with original openers for each option.People who struggle with what to say when online dating can now download Dating Hacks, which insists you’ll “never send the wrong message that ruins your chance of getting a date ever again.” Basically, it’s an app with ready-made messages for clueless daters, promising “to start and maintain engaging conversations, get the phone number and setup dates.” While most hoped that pickup artist negs would disappear when the television show The Pickup Artist was cancelled in 2008, it’s alive on the app, with a section stocked with subtle put-downs.The app, which launched on January 16, allows users to choose from over 500 messages with 30 categories, including After Date, Sexting, After Sex, What Are We? One reason is because their profile reads like a boring, dating profile shaped turd. I thought I would throw some keywords that would describe what I like to do.
