A bodybuilding enthusiast named GermanLifter decided to conduct a social experiment to see how much easier life was for attractive dudes (Even creepy ones).
He created a Tinder profile using pics of the guy from the “Call me Maybe?” music video. The model has an ideal body type, and is well, a gorgeous male model.
Here’s the full reel of photos used on the profile:
A+ main pic showing off the model’s great teeth and hair. Super simple bio, definitely good to mention that 6’3′ height stat.
Gotta have that brooding, dark and mysterious pic.
And in case someone isn’t already sold, here’s a shirtless pic that makes it 100% clear this guy is ripped.
And this pic just says “fuck me.”
With the fake profile all set up, GermanLifter starts swiping. Without even trying very hard, countless matches start flowing in:
“Also, I have absolutely zero game. I wasn’t even trying, just sending random bullshit that came off top of my head but it doesn’t matter.
[…] All of the following convos take place in a time frame of about 2 hours (srs). I can’t even keep up with all the matches/messages I’m getting, it would probably take 10+ people working full time to talk to all the girls who want this guy.”
Here’s the convos he had:
It doesn’t matter how raunchy and offensive his opening line is, these girls are totally into him!
Like seriously, how far can this guy go before someone draws the line?
Nobody has gotten upset yet.
I have a feeling that if I sent any messages like this on Tinder, I would end up on one of those subreddits that make fun of creepy men.
To be sure, not every girl that GermanLifter talked to was interested in casual sex — but even those ladies were still interested in him.
No matter what this guy said, he never got called a creep. As far as we could tell, he didn’t even get blocked or unmatched. I can’t help but wonder what would happen if a dude wearing a fedora sent the exact same messages?
“I can literally say ANYTHING and still get their #. The girls often initiate first and respond immediately when I send a message. Admittedly I did get turned down a few times only because I opened with stuff like ‘let’s fukc’ (srs).”
Some people responded to this social experiment by simply saying that obvious conclusion is obvious: people are drawn to attractive people. Others said that Tinder is also not a representative sample of all people in the world, as most users are probably open to hookups.
User BetaThanU, however, suggested that there is a “societal” double standard where attractive men are allowed to say a whole lot more than unattractive men.
At the end of the day though, Tinder sucks, so we probably shouldn’t care all that much.
