What Happened When I Texted 10 Guys on Tinder Using Only 'Game of Thrones' Quotes

Surprisingly "I am the blood of the dragon" did not reel me in a ton of dates.

Having exhausted my canon of Sex and the City quotes, 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.

😴😴😴

5. This guy who clocked me

Good recovery.

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

[image id='332c5f14-f12e-42c1-8011-3a8c18ecf1fb' mediaId='d33f5461-f320-4202-ad67-07b95be305cb' align='C' size='extrasmall' share='true' caption='' expand='true'][/image]

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

[image id='ef389411-77c2-4b38-8119-d8ca2490c18d' mediaId='32488086-95fc-49cf-88d9-70141deffec1' align='C' size='extrasmall' share='true' caption='' expand='true'][/image]

Disappointed he never responded!

9. This Latin expert who didn't know how to use "you're" correctly

[image id='0dc0de62-5e65-4407-b79f-8c3a614fb12b' mediaId='9df9c8f4-68c5-44ff-ac14-619d213ae1b1' align='C' size='extrasmall' share='true' caption='' expand='true'][/image]

Perfect.

10. This guy who had as good an attitude as any

[image id='ca1c91d7-5cc3-45f3-aa42-9050980f95e0' mediaId='059c2ec7-2292-4856-a74d-ec857c96bc21' align='C' size='extrasmall' share='true' caption='' expand='true'][/image]

Is it?

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.
