10 People who knew exactly how to deal with creepy messages online
Anyone who's single at the moment knows that online dating is tough, and it's a such a slog because its biggest boon is also its greatest detriment. While dating apps grant you the power to match with anyone in the world, it means that you can match with anyone in the world, good or bad. Of course, we all keep swiping because we're still hopeful that we can score a dream date with the love of our life ... that's the plan anyway.
The reality, more often than not, is that some creep tries desperately to slide into your DMs. Yes, it could be an unsolicited d*ck pic, or a demand for nudes, or just a generally offensive, needless comment that turns you off. We've seen and heard them all, and quite frankly, it can be totally exasperating. But don't be depressed or upset by creepy messages. All you need is a snappy clapback at your disposal to put the creeps back in their place, and if you're not confident enough in your own abilities, then all you need to do is follow the example of people who are pros when it comes to getting rid of weirdos.
