Dev’s (Aziz Ansari) classic line “Going to Whole Foods, want me to pick you up anything?
” began making the rounds on real-life dating sites.
Instantly, I’d learned that this person had actually looked at my profile and was dorky enough to correctly identify the pokémon casually sitting on my bookshelf.
You’ll never know why people reject you on a dating app (unless you’re clearly being gross), but all you can do is keep trying.
Dev’s copy-paste method works, in theory, because of its “originality.” It’s different from the type of message most women are used to getting.
It demonstrates that they, too, are into this silly thing that might be a turnoff for others. I’m personally of the opinion that your best bet is an opening message clearly meant for the person you’re engaging with.
If you want to be more than a bubble in someone’s DMs, you need to treat them like more than a face in your matches.
