Sending panda facts might be the best pickup line to use on Tinder

There's a 100 percent chance you've been the recipient of a weird message if you've spent any time on Tinder, but one guy took it to a whole new level.

"I matched with a girl this past Christmas but messed up on my first message," Imgur user msang12321 wrote. "I panicked so I did what any sensible person would do...I sent her a panda fact. And then another...and another...for 100 straight days."

His response? The ultimate cop-out: "I like to live in the shadows."


Damn, dude… we were with you at first, but now it's time to either put up or shut up. It's obvious she's somewhat interested because otherwise she would've stopped replying — or unmatched you — long ago.
