As I’ve mentioned before, you are bound to meet some characters on Tinder. Unfortunately you can’t always spot a creep with just 1-3 photos. Tinder just launched a premium service, Tinder Plus, where one of the features should be giving more information about yourself. However, it is only to correct if you swiped left.

If you swiped right and find yourself in an awful conversation, here are 5 responses to keep in your back pocket:

  1. “Bye Felicia.”
  2. “Not Interested.”
  3. “I accidentally swiped right.”
  4. “This is her boyfriend. WHO ARE YOU!”
  5. And one I’ve used when I had a guy who unambitiously asked for my phone number (actual convo):

Him: “Do you have any other means of communication?”

Me: “Yup.” Followed by nothing, lol.

It’s not that hard to ask for a phone number guys. But honestly, the best thing you can do is unmatch with that person so they can no longer message you.

So lovelies tell me…what responses have you given to get out of an awkward online conversation?
