I used the same line with men on dating apps…here’s what they said.

If you’ve ever used apps like Tinder, Bumble or Happn, then you won’t be surprised when I tell you that the most common opening line from guys is a simple ‘Hey’. After 50 or so of these messages, it gets a bit monotonous. After my last post, you’ll know I was left a little stung after an encounter with a man that thought he was the centre of the universe. So, a bottle of wine deep and 3 dating apps re-downloaded, we’re ready for a not-so-scientific experiment.
