So what’s your go-to Tinder pickup line? Please tell me that it isn’t “hey” or “sup.” Also don’t tell me your greeting is: “Are you my appendix because I don’t understand how you work but this feeling in my stomach makes me want to take you out.” One talented writer crafts Tinder poems that have secret pickup lines embedded inside them.
Earlier today we learned that writing long messages on dating sites is worthless according to a new study. But they never wrote literary masterpieces quite like this.
The poet who goes by the name of Drew and he transforms his Tinder pickup lines into a piece of artwork. He brilliantly breaks the ice by writing Shakespearean sonnets… that ask for the recipient to “SEND NUDES” and asks “phone number pls.”

Bonus points for the iambic pentameter.

But Drew doesn’t only specialize in Shakespeare, he can switch it up and write a Dr. Seus-esque Tinder poem.

Drew told Bored Panda that it takes him around 45 minutes to write a single Tinder poem. The worst part is that the hard work is as effective as a normal icebreaker. “To be honest I find I have about just as much success with normal messaging than I do with the poems,” Drew said. “They’re not magically boosting my chances but they do well as a memorable icebreaker.”
So this study is correct in saying that writing too much on Tinder is worthless. Just save yourself some time and write, “sup.”
