This guy managed to sneak a NSFW message into a Tinder sonnet, and the internet is dead impressed

When Tinder first hit our app stores, it was the most exciting thing to have happened to the dating world since guys worked out they could slide into people's DMs with a cheeky, "heyyyyy". Now, however, after years of swiping, super-liking, and sending the same old corny chat-up lines to people within a 50km radius (let's be real here, most of us get desperate after a while), it gets a little stale.

Every now and then, though, someone comes along and changes the game.

This time around, it was Reddit user drewhead1, who penned a beautiful sonnet for his latest match - a woman named Emilia.

In a post titled "That's it. I'm done. I've actually peaked this time and I'll never reach these heights again", Drew shared this wonderful poem:

Now for anyone who knows a thing or two about sonnets, this one is technically perfect. The three quatrains followed by a couplet, the alternate rhyme - even the iambic pentameter; it's all just so good. Seriously, if this was an assignment in a college class, it'd probably get top marks.

But this isn't a college class, it's Tinder. And so, of course, there's a hidden message in there.

After Emilia responded with a (disappointingly short) response saying that she thought the work was "beautiful", Drew revealed the true meaning behind the poem.

Sure enough, if you go through the first letter of each line of the sonnet - plus Drew's modest round-off at the end - it spells out: S-E-N-D-N-U-D-E-S-E-M-I-L-I-A.

Aww, how romantic.

But that wasn't the end of it. After Emilia deciphered the message and had a good giggle at it, Drew revealed that he had actually included a second hidden message before he'd even penned the sonnet.

This message, which was hidden in his response to Emilia asking for a sonnet about a first love, said: W-A-N-N-A-S-M-A-S-H.

Ok, so it's a little less romantic than "Love lost is better than a love not shared", but - come on - the guy wrote her a sonnet. And if you think that's the end of it, you'd better place your feet firmly on the ground because this next revelation will blow your socks off.

Drew had hidden a third message in the sonnet.

For those too lazy to scroll back up, the third message reads: P-H-O-N-E-N-U-M-B-E-R-P-L-S.

And come on, after all the effort Drew went to, who wouldn't give their number to him?

And just like that, Drew won the fair Emilia's digits. It's a love story for the modern age.
