WWTOYD? Responding to Tinder Messages

Ah Tinder! A rose by any other name—like Bumble, OKCupid, or Grindr—would smell as just as sexy and unpredictable. (That's definitely what Shakespeare was talking about, right?) 

Online dating might be a universal experience, but it isn't an easy one. Every now and then you get a message that makes you feel a little gross. Or a little offended. Or a little bit like you'd rather die alone. 

So how do you respond to these messages? Probably with the dignity and grace of the Kween you are. But how would The Other You Respond? A little kinkier? A little meaner? A little more willing-to-try? Let's find out...

The Other You: Hmm, I have not. Tell me more. Do you know from experience ;)

You: That's pretty rude. [blocks instantly] The Other You: If you don't want people confusing "inappropriate comments" with "harassing and misogynistic language" maybe don't lead with "Where can I shove my huge c*** you filthy wh**e"...I guess that's a difficult concept for sewer trash to grasp.
