Pickup Artists Are Sending this Ridiculous Message To Women On Tinder

There is a creepy message circulating around Tinder propositioning women for sex, and BuzzFeed News has just discovered that the message was crafted by pickup artist Maxmilian Berger a few years ago. Pickup artists (also known as PUAs) are part of an online community seeking to attract women, and their techniques and views are often considered misogynistic.

Popular Instagram page @Feminist_Tinder first shared a screenshot of the message. They claimed that multiple women had received it and that a Google search revealed it was popular among PUAs. BuzzFeed News then reported that Berger wrote the message (officially called the "Apocalypse Opener: Tinder Edition").

"Hey, I know this is kinda weird and pushy haha, but would you like to have sex with me?" the pickup line reads. "I’m not a creep or a pervert, just a genuine guy. I would treat you with respect and the sex would be good. I can even make you squirt if the connection is right haha. I will not judge you or think you’re “easy”. So yeah, excuse me if I come across as a little uncalibrated but I think you’re attractive, so what do you think? :) Haha"

Berger introduced the line in his 2014 YouTube video, "How to Fuck Girls On Tinder - TEXT EXAMPLES." He claims it his works like a charm.

"You're basically putting all of the logical reasons out there for her to have sex with you. You're telling her 'I'm not going to consider you a slut, no one will ever notice,'" he said in the video, adding that the smiley faces and use of "hahas" help. "The funny thing is, you actually get laid from this stuff. Girls are actually like, 'Uh, yeah we can meet up' or 'Oh, this whole squirting thing sounds cool.'"

He added that if a girl agrees to meet up after reading this message, it's important to say that you just wrote the message off the top of your head.

"Some girls will actually comply and you can actually get laid from that," he continued.

Though Berger has said this line is very helpful in bedding women, it has also received some criticism from women online. In August 2014, a blogger named Miri wrote that she received this message on OKCupid but felt put off by it because her profile did not state she was looking for casual sex. Others have smeared the line on social media:

The consequences of ignoring these kind of messages on Tinder.

Some men don't take it very well when their advances towards women on dating sites are ignored or rejected. The popular Instagram page Bye Felipe, which has nearly 390,000 followers, is popular among women for publishing screenshots of rude messages from men who have been rejected or ignored by women on Tinder. The bye Felipe line comes from the classic "bye Felicia" line in the film "Friday."
