Mostly As: Tinder
You probably think you give off big dick energy, but all you are is a walking ick. At best, you’re efficient, blunt, and convenient. Although you’re always DTF, and your Snapchat score is in the seven digits (who still uses this app at this age?), you ain’t fishing anyone with those grainy-ass thirst trap pics, or festival photos that require Sherlock Holmes to figure out who you are in the group.
Mostly Bs: Bumble
Oh humble Bumble. You give so much, and yet receive so little in return. Dating for you is straight-up philanthropy at this point. But, it’s time to stop scraping the bottom of the barrel. Know your worth, raise that bar from the depths of hell, and stop settling for the barest of bare minimums.
Mostly Cs: Hinge
You’re like Tinder, but the softboy/softgirl version. As an emotional thirst trap connoisseur, you prefer to show-off your dog, rather than your washboard abs or juicy badonkadonk. You’re also not afraid to profess your undying love for a stranger with your arsenal of ‘ironically’ corny pick-up lines. But, behind your carefully crafted cool persona, you’re just a downbad hopeless romantic like the rest of us, desperately looking for someone to watch movies with on a Sunday night.
Mostly Ds: SeekingArrangements
In this crumbling economy and cost-of-living crisis, we absolutely respect the material girl hustle. You know exactly what you’re looking for, and if a special sugar daddy/mummy can provide that for you, that sounds like the ideal arrangement to us. Honestly, you’re the only one who’s winning in the dating game. Catching feelings and falling in love only ever ends in hurt and trauma, but $$$ has always got your back.
