What Happens When You Send Guys Song Lyrics On Tinder

Tinder. Some hate it, others love it, but we can all admit that it's an app that has taken our generation by storm. With it's right swipes, left swipes, and super likes, Tinder has changed the dating game for college students everywhere. Some use it as a way to meet new people, some for an easy hookup, and others for an ego boost to hold together their fragile self-esteem.

With a community of people with such diverse motivations, you never know what to expect. So that's exactly what I decided to become: the unexpected. I went not-so-undercover on Tinder with the singular purpose of messaging guys using only popular song lyrics. So, without further ado, here are some of my exchanges on Tinder feat. Selena Gomez, One Direction, and, of course, Taylor Swift.

1. Selena Gomez: "Can't Keep My Hands To Myself"

Currently he thinks I need help in a fun and flirty way. Once he reads this article, he's still going to think I need help, just in a different way...

Success rate: 6/10

2. J. Cole: "Work Out"

So maybe I used the most recognizable lyric in the song, but I really did think I had a chance of tricking him. Props to him for recognizing my game instantly and also sliding in a quick compliment. Success rate: 10/10

3. One Direction: "Perfect"

Apparently, using this song leads not only to highly philosophical quotes by "Muhammas" Ali, but also the boy asking for your number, even if he only wants to hold you "sometimes." Too bad One Direction won't be together anymore to play at our wedding.

Success rate: 10/10

4. Taylor Swift: "Enchanted"

This image would be the perfect cover for a book titled "Easy Ways to Convince a Guy You're Psychotic." I'll be holding signings in Barnes and Noble once it is published.

Success Rate: -10

5. Zayn Malik: "Pillowtalk"

Apparently, more boys know the lyrics to Zayn's new song than a One Direction single. S/o to this dude for ruining my fun before it began..

Success rate: 2/10

5. Adele: "Hello"

"I figured from the get go..." and these were the most clever responses he could think of? Sorry, dude, it never would have worked out with us anyway. It's not me, it's you—looks like I'll always be on the other side.

Success rate: 2/10

6. Taylor Swift: "Blank Space"

Hands down, my favorite conversation of them all. When in doubt, Taylor Swift. Honestly speaking, "you look like my next mistake" is pretty much my thought process when I see a cute guy. Kudos to this guy for playing my own game right back at me. Snaps for you.

Success rate: 10/10

I'm not sure what I expected responses to be before I did this, but I definitely got a few good laughs out of the experience. I'm slightly afraid I will run into some of these guys on campus and they'll see me as the crazy girl from Tinder, but hey, what's life without a little risk? I might just talk to guys in only song lyrics from now on, because I think I was actually more successful that way. I'm not sure what that says about my personality or future love life, but at least we all get a laugh out of it.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
