’s second season, viewers took their love and adoration for the show to a place made for love and adoration: dating apps.
Dev’s (Aziz Ansari) classic line “Going to Whole Foods, want me to pick you up anything?
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.As a serial non-responder, I can recall the number of Good Messages I’ve gotten pretty easily. “I see that Pikachu on your shelf.” I’d used the selfie in question for months, and not a single person had ever pointed that out.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.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.
