It's twenty-eighteen and we're not dating. At least, not dating the right way. From coy glances in a chance meeting, it has come down to a few right swipes (RS), and what follows is an ordeal of playing nice over the first few exchanges.

In the age of Tinder, it's not at all uncommon to find good-looking creeps slide into your chats (because that's why you RS-ed — based upon the looks). But have you ever hated the very first words that popped up on your phone during the maiden conversation? Yes? We feel ya.

That's why we came up with a list of opening lines used by Tinder-princes (if they were that at all *eye rolls*) that are a complete no-no. And, they do deserve the block. Thank us later.

1. Your place or mine?





Really? Like, really? That's what guys think is a good one. Can anything BE any more belittling than this?

2. How about a short round of rapid fire?

Umm, that's basically every second guy's line. Would you want to be that basic?

3. Hi, for some reason, I find your hairstyle/neck/lips/etc extremely arousing.




And, for some reason we find this line really repelling. Oh, we know why!

4. Wow! You're so fucking hot. I would ***k you incredibly hard.

* Blocks *

5. 1 who typz lik diz.

Seriously? Would you be okay with someone who types like education on them was a wastage?

6. With an obscure GIF with hidden/in-the-face innuendo.




If you're looking for that kind of action alone, then this cuts the chase. But if you want a nice guy, then it's a loud NO!

7. Can we exchange numbers?




Whatever happened to 'Hi'.

8. Coffee, tea or me?




Eeeeehhh! If that counts. But some people just miss out the nice in niceties.

9. Looking for hook-up? Call me.

No, thank you. (Even if you are looking for one, don't you think it is TOO DIRECT?).

10. Hey! Do you wanna get into a relationship with me?





Huh? Wut? These are the guys who get one match after swiping hundreds, so you can see the desperation through the words directly.

Ladies, you don't need that kind of negativity in life. Do you?

There are, of course more, we know. So, what's your block-worthy opening line? Let us know in the comments below.
