Having exhausted my canon of Sex and the City quotes (opens in new tab), but still thirsty for a script to follow on Tinder, I texted 10 randos using only lines from Game of Thrones, and this is what happened:
1. This raving professor
How much fun is Berlin if you're still talking on New York Tinder tho? 🤔
2. This confused guy
To be fair, same.
3. This kewl dude
Someone explain the earwax to me, please.
4. This emoji appreciator
5. This guy who clocked me
6. This thinker
If you have to follow your line up with a sweating emoji, just don't send it.
7. This guy who was game
To be fair, I don't think I'd respond to a guy texting me "I am the blood of the dragon" with crying emojis, so good for him.
8. This guy who had a LINE
Disappointed he never responded!
9. This Latin expert who didn't know how to use "you're" correctly
10. This guy who had as good an attitude as any
At the end of my experiment, I was pleased to learn that the majority of guys out there are still willing to volley a conversation back and forth even if your opening line is as wild as "I am the blood of the dragon." As for the other guys, I'm just gonna tell myself they didn't respond because they were intimidated by the Khaleesi vibes I was giving off.
