Anyone who has ever used a dating app, which we assume to be almost everyone reading this, knows that guys can be a bit…let’s call it enthusiastic.
In some ways, it’s a leg-up gay men have over straight guys — we may not all be all be looking to hook up all the time, but when the mood ever strikes there’s usually a sea of willing participants. Assuming you’re playing safe and being honest (which, OK, is it’s own separate mine field to maneuver), satisfaction can be just around the corner.
For straight guys using apps like Tinder, being overly sexual up front is usually perceived as a huge turn off (or so our straight girl friends tell us). But can you imagine if all that straight testosterone-laden horniness was turned in on itself? Who are we kidding, of course you can.
Well one evil genius set out to create just that scenario. He made a program that showed straight guys a dummy female profile (the photo of which was a consenting friend). Then when guys swiped right, it paired two straight guys in a conversation, both thinking they were talking to the girl.
In some cases the guys completely ignore huge red flags that something isn’t right. We’ll chalk that up to which head they’re using to process information — reality takes a backseat to fantasy.
Below are their actual conversations. Phone numbers and personal info has been blurred:
