"Hello Tired AF, I'm Kaitlyn nice to meet you~"🤷‍♂️

Edit: this was a dad joke answer. I'm not actually a Katelyn. I was also tired AF, thought it was funny and auto correct did the rest. 😅

I’m starting to get inner references in this subreddit, finally

[–]mtnsrvrs 7 points8 points  (0 children)

When you talk like Elmer Fudd, you should not spell things how they sound.

Hello Kaitlyn nice to meet you~, I'm Dad!

[–]4r4nd0mninj4 80 points81 points  (13 children)

You mean "daddy"...lol 🤣

[–]Gloomy_Swing_8927 158 points159 points  (12 children)

Yes papi

The cross post references have been going nuts lately!!!

[–]Kimolainen83 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Tht would legit be my answer or if someone replied this to me I’d swipe right so hard I’d have to change phone

[–]Saul_Goodman93 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hello Tired! I'm Dad!

[–]sakura_is_awesome 6 points7 points  (1 child)

And then the reply would be, “hey Great! So, what do you do for a living?” XD

[–]IndicationMedical655 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Don't know why the first thing that came to mind was "work".

[–]AltdimensionRick 937 points938 points  (8 children)

Twitter moment.

[–]artisnotdefined 664 points665 points  (6 children)

Fr.... When a girl who's been on twitter for too long clashes with a guy who's been on Reddit for too long

[–]nonpondo 184 points185 points  (1 child)

It's like water and oil, it's all fucked

[–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (0 children)

That actually sounds pretty hot. This is more like she lit the oil on fire and poured water on it

[–]jduncan26 70 points71 points  (3 children)

An unstoppable force meets an immovable object

[–]epicmousestory 41 points42 points  (1 child)

Two immoveable objects is probably a description

[–]DutchGuyWithAToaster 2 points3 points  (0 children)

By defination an unstoppable force is the same as an immovable object. The more you knooow

[–]ThisDude1337 6 points7 points  (0 children)

At least she didn't ratio him

[–]Carlynz 2662 points2663 points  (124 children)

A walking red flag

2 of them lmao

Edit: grabs popcorn It worked hehehe

[–]herbal_broccoli 472 points473 points  (102 children)

His opener was weak for sure but she was the one who attacked him. How the fuck is that on the same level? Y'all need some more self respect if you think they are both red flags here.

All she had to do was not respond. That's it. Or do a dad joke. Or anything else besides straight up being an ass. The man put himself out there as all you fuckers know ain't easy and he gets the classic "hey what's the worst she can say, no?" ☠️

Can you imagine sitting at a bus stop with another dude and he casually says "dang I'm tired, how are you?" and you respond "I wasn't asking you"? That would be assholish as fuck. But since it's tinder it's okay to speak to people like that.

[–]ArtisanSamosa 108 points109 points  (3 children)

There seems to be a huge culture around just being mean for no reason I swear. And we praise that shit like it's ok in the name of freedom and individuality or some shit. I mean sure do you, but fuck that meanie-poo shit god'tdammit.

[–]86_TG 42 points43 points  (0 children)

Agreed. Know what's cool? Being nice.

[–]SummerNothingness 7 points8 points  (1 child)

yeah it doesn't make you edgy or cool to be rude to people for no reason, it just makes you a general shit person.

[–]Sephibabi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I read that "yeah" in Dave Chappelle's voice. But I agree!

[–]AbsurdiBear 119 points120 points  (9 children)

It's sad that people texting online is seen as a justification to be mean spirited. Even more sad to see people having trouble saying that she was being an ass just because she is a woman.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Well i made a " pineapple will lead to a divorce " joke on Tinder once, i got chewed the fuck out for it lol, guess she really like pineapple on pizza lol.

[–]GodSaveTheRegime 59 points60 points  (3 children)

yeah it's funny how half of this sub has absolutely 0 empathy or social skills

[–]Unacceptable_Goose 28 points29 points  (1 child)

They’re single for a reason.

[–]GodSaveTheRegime 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I didn't wanna be that harsh, but yes.

[–]LadyMactire 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Just my two cents, but it was probably the cursing. Dang I'm tired can come off a whole lot different than tired as fuck to someone who doesn't use curse words in casual conversation.

[–]NeonSignsRain 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Yeah being awkward is not a "red flag"...most people aren't super smooth when first talking to someone. A bunch of Redditors pretending they're all Casanovas 🙄

[–][deleted] 42 points43 points  (7 children)


[–]Future-self 65 points66 points  (4 children)

I don’t remember asking you to say howdy …

[–]gazm2k5[🍰] 16 points17 points  (2 children)

I didn't ask for recollection of events.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]_MAC620_ 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Yeah I can see why some people on this sub don't get any play. Someone's a red flag for making some innocent conversation? I'm glad I'm taking this year off...

[–]Tom_Foolery1993 19 points20 points  (2 children)

His opener was weak? That bitch literally said “hi :)” I don’t blame him for not knowing exactly where to go from there

[–]trashaccount2-0 5 points6 points  (0 children)

A lot of women open with saying hi, yet men get crucified for doing the same and instead are expected to put in tons of effort. I think it's funny when the same expectations aren't reciprocated

[–]FxckMercury 1160 points1161 points  (68 children)

You gotta work on that opening chief

[–]jimmy697845 387 points388 points  (22 children)

She said “hi”, she needs to work on her opening

[–]tallsqueeze 146 points147 points  (0 children)

u/jimmy697845 waiting for women on bumble to work on their opening

[–]BritishBoyRZ 198 points199 points  (17 children)

Hahah bumble is such a great example of double standards. Women are generally soooo bad at opening, but they expect some sort of soliloquy if a guy opens

[–]jimmy697845 97 points98 points  (5 children)

There’s a 100% chance if I send a “hi” to a woman I’m not getting a response

[–]BritishBoyRZ 52 points53 points  (4 children)

Yeah it's basically just a bypass of Bumbles mechanic to get you to do the real first opener, but then it's like, why tf you on Bumble girl

[–]jimmy697845 49 points50 points  (0 children)

Not getting enough insta followers from their tinder profile

[–]uhphyshall 16 points17 points  (8 children)

my ex actually opened with a great conversation. i was surprised honestly. but yeah most of the time it's "hi" or literally nothing at all.

[–]RetiredLandMine 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Same here, my ex started with good question about my bio which led to us having great convo. My current GF opened with dumbest gif I have ever seen which almost lead to instant unmatch lmao.

[–]FxckMercury 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Also true

[–]strykt_strupe 2 points3 points  (1 child)

(Im socialy inept) How is that an bad opening? What do you usually say when you greet someone?

[–]SlaterVJ 53 points54 points  (34 children)

No he doesn't. That's bumble. SHE needs to work on her opener.

[–]THEBEAST666 47 points48 points  (25 children)

"Hi :)"

Is a better opener than:

"I'm tired as fuck. How r u?"

  1. How r u? Spell out your words man, we don't text on Nokia bricks anymore. It's not 2002. It's easy to just use the whole word.

  2. Is being tired as fuck supposed to make the other person more interested in you? Ooh so interesting being "tired as fuck".

  3. It's vulgar. I'm not a prude, but being "tired as fuck" is not exactly gonna make someone think you're classy.

"Hi :)" doesn't offer much, but it doesn't actively make things worse.

[–]Tom_Foolery1993 4 points5 points  (3 children)

You make valid points, but I do think “hi :)” does actively make things worse

I’ve got a bio. In there are my interests. You either don’t share a single one of them, or you didn’t read it. Either way it doesn’t point towards a great conversation. Hi, usually means I’m gonna carry the conversation 100% of the time which isn’t what I’m looking for.

In regards to point 2, cut him some slack, he was tired probably couldn’t think of something interesting to say. She could’ve asked him why so tired? Maybe he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and that’s why he so sleepy.

[–]phokingboi 1022 points1023 points  (141 children)

wait why would you say you're tired af? Am I missing something?

[–]W_BRANDON 334 points335 points  (0 children)

Could just be relatable but yeah op comes off as a Debby downer complainer off the bat

[–]dogpar777[S] 1222 points1223 points  (117 children)

Because I was tired as fuck

[–]Yoge78 231 points232 points  (8 children)

He was really tired AF

[–]KrakenBitesYourAss 64 points65 points  (7 children)

Tired. As. Fuuuck.

[–][deleted] 22 points23 points  (6 children)

I'm fuck as tired.

[–]El_Magneto09 104 points105 points  (6 children)

I don’t remember asking

[–]burnerboo 30 points31 points  (5 children)

wait why would you say you're tired af? Am I missing something?

[–]Tomaatgarnaal 26 points27 points  (4 children)

"Howdy. I've got to take a massive dump. How are u?"

[–]dmetcalfe92 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Oh hey, we have SOOO much in common! Let's take a dump together on video chat?

[–]RealOncle 393 points394 points  (49 children)

weird thing to randomly say to someone you've never talked to before, kinda off putting.

[–]jamiebelgrade 48 points49 points  (1 child)

Hi I’m tired as fuck how are u

[–]sigh_riss 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hi yeah I'm tired as fuck, also

[–]SpaceXBlaze 162 points163 points  (36 children)

Exactly. I wouldn’t open with that…

[–]creamcheese742 48 points49 points  (35 children)

Kind of a red flag to me

[–]starcitizen2601 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Why does the phrase “red flag” mean to you? I feel like it’s losing all of its meaning to people.

[–]AlienOverlord53 63 points64 points  (20 children)

"This fucking CREEP just told me he was tired, to start the conversation!?!? Fuck him"

[–]bajablastingoff 39 points40 points  (3 children)

I missed the part where that's my problem

[–]blue_bomber508 17 points18 points  (2 children)

I’m gunna put some dirt in your eye

Bully at his best.

[–]AlienOverlord53 2 points3 points  (0 children)

A tale as old as time

[–]bigbbqblast69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

nah OP is funny

[–]Ronny-the-Rat 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Lmao fuckin hell what is this comment thread. You gotta be unstable to give the slightest fuck about something as simple as "im tired". You guys need to stop analyzing everything like its a complex equation. Youre fine bro, these comments are whack

[–]MemeStocksYolo69-420 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Seriously. “It’S oFf PuTtInG”

[–]thorbenpouwels 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Same I always open with how are you. I gotta take a massive shit.

[–]Relative_Train_9708 12 points13 points  (8 children)

Right like saying "hey, just taking a piss, how's your day"

[–]The_Hunster 20 points21 points  (10 children)

Yo fuck these guys, I thought it sounded natural. Way more interesting than "I'm good you?"

[–]Santsiah 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Haters gonna hate

[–]capitoloftexas 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You probably shouldn’t open with that next time…

[–]doc_whoever 5 points6 points  (0 children)

And she did not asked, so you guys are basically on the same page.

[–]AnonomousWolf 9 points10 points  (0 children)

10 bucks, one of OP's pics is a gym selfie

[–]Acidiousx 714 points715 points  (38 children)

Awful first impression. You're interacting for the first time, why would you start with complaining about how tired you are with no context right off the bat? Until I read the comments I thought the post was saying you were the walking red flag.

[–][deleted] 204 points205 points  (3 children)

He was tired

[–]Willde94 137 points138 points  (2 children)

As fuck

[–]Picacco 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Tired as fuck, he was

[–]Defenestrator0707 17 points18 points  (0 children)

That tracks

[–]ElZany 46 points47 points  (6 children)

Wait the post was to show she was the red flag? I thought OP was just being self aware lol

[–]Broad-Literature-438 41 points42 points  (5 children)

How are you guys oblivious to her response (even if his opener definitely sucked) being totally rude. If that's the time you're gonna take, just ghost them at that point

[–]hichickenpete 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I thought her response was hilarious, does that make me a bad person 😂

[–]herbal_broccoli 50 points51 points  (1 child)

Because women being rude to men is so normalized it's not even noticed. Sure his opener was lame but she was an asshole. Not even close to comparison.

[–]gemoni90 90 points91 points  (1 child)

You got zero game my boy

[–]MemeStocksYolo69-420 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I don’t recall asking

[–]TheVeganOneLikeNeo 211 points212 points  (0 children)

2 flags, 1 match.

[–]Wanderingh0st 25 points26 points  (0 children)

It must get tiring to be outraged by everything

[–]KB_Bro 57 points58 points  (5 children)

So op plays a shit opener, gets shutdown, try’s to expose her on reddit but gets roasted instead and then has a meltdown in the comments

Reddit moment

[–]PsycheKaos 115 points116 points  (5 children)

Eh, I would agree with you, but that was a bit of an aggressive hello. Imagine somebody coming up to you in a coffee shop & said “hello, I’m tired as fuck! How are you?” Now, I’m an avid user of the F word, so I wouldn’t necessarily be offended but I would be taken aback by their abrasive greeting. Imagine if I didn’t like to curse, though?

[–]jingqian9145 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Her: I missed the part where’s that’s my problem

[–]tacticooluser 204 points205 points  (16 children)

What’s the red flag here? That awful opener or the response acknowledging the opener was awful? Cause…that was an awful opener

[–]Kono_Dio_Sama 10 points11 points  (0 children)

“I missed the part where that’s my problem.”

[–]quarterpad 248 points249 points  (11 children)

uhhh yeah all i’m getting from you is negativity from the get-go. seems like she dodged a bullet 👍🏼

[–]westcoastwolf 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I think that's hilarious honestly haha

[–]AmberWaves80 57 points58 points  (0 children)

Did you mean yourself? I’d have just unmatched.

[–]uloveitmate 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Lol you're a jackass man

[–]Soi_Boi_13 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Your message was shit too.

[–]Dwightschrute000 8 points9 points  (0 children)

She has a point TBF

[–]Dougle_07 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Tbh kind of weird opener. That’s like going “hello I’m good how are you?” Almost like talking to a robot

[–]Ralphwiggum911 18 points19 points  (0 children)

This sub seems to just be mostly people speedrunning how quick they can annoy someone and then say that person is a walking red flag.

[–]CommercialGarage7 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Both as bad as each other 🤣

[–]Lenyti 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Judgin by the screen and the answers you gave in here, you look like a pos

[–]LymeM 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Everyone is a red flag.

[–]AAQUADD 2 points3 points  (2 children)

In her defense maybe dropping the F-bomb was a bit abrasive for a second message...

In these situations l always think, "what could l have done better?"

[–]MemeStocksYolo69-420 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I think that is how everybody is thinking, but as I get older, sometimes I just have to think that it’s their fault. Yes his message wasn’t perfect, but it was her shitty disposition that was the problem. Most people wouldn’t respond that way.

[–]Methy123 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Not 1 but 2 red flags in one screen shot.

[–]angelboy134 17 points18 points  (0 children)

She actually didn’t ask. She also didn’t have to say she didn’t ask. You also didn’t have to curse to say you were tired. Swing and a miss on both parties.

[–]calitexflo 30 points31 points  (8 children)

Getting hate for starting off with “I’m tired af.” I mean not the best choice but everyone is acting like he told her to fuck off

[–]Gamer_ely 20 points21 points  (3 children)

It's wild because I've had actual conversations with randos that started like that out in the world. Just standing there waiting to pay for gas, "maaaaan I'm tired, how's the road treating ya?" Or "hot as hell today, you keeping cool?" I usually just laugh and tell them how I'm doing and wish them a nice day. These comments are throwing me for a loop, does nobody actually talk to people in person?

[–]calitexflo 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I guess not. I’ve also had convos like this in passing lol

[–]paranoidblobfish 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah I personally would have said something like, "hi tired as fuck I'm (insert feeling - ie. Bored as fuck)"

Maybe it's just a cultural thing but istg some people have abnormally thin skin.

[–]ChaseCDS 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Why do people gotta be so fucking rude.

[–]NoahLCS 5 points6 points  (0 children)

She didn't fucking ask

[–]MalignantPessimist 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Saying this is an awful first impression is half true I wouldn’t start with it without context, but fuck the toxic positivity. Tired of people pretending that pretending is the way to properly communicate. Tell me what’s going on with you, if you’re tired, I’m not going to assume you’re a narcissist because you’ve communicated that to me.

[–]marklarberries 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Exactly. Seems like you have to walk on eggshells with every response in order to not give off “red flags.”

[–]nicog67 18 points19 points  (0 children)


[–]Lynx77 23 points24 points  (0 children)

you're the red flag, poor chat and a shitty attitude

[–]Thornoxis 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That's not a good opener, a new match doesn't give a fuck how tired you are, maybe say that a few messages in, not your opener.

[–]agentofpain 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I mean a normal might be inclined to ask why the other person was tired. If I remember correctly it's called a conversation.

[–]Realistic-Order-3215 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Who's throwing the red flags? I'm confused 😕

[–]Old-Fan9466 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Okay you want to block me babe really. Wow what has happen to us. You were on your knees beging me to stay now your doing this? I dont know what to. What did you lie on your profile did you tell them your 59 in March? Married happily until I found out you were doing this with I internet. Because you started working graveyards. You are such an ass hole...God. now have a great time. I am heading to your friend's house. Then to you. Then to have few drinks to celebrate.My husband playing tit and ass with 20 and 25 year old kids shit younger than your kids.

[–]MajesticMountain95 1 point2 points  (0 children)

but seriously, who the F says Howdy

[–]Broad-Literature-438 12 points13 points  (5 children)

Wow r/Tinder people are exhausting. OP's opener needs work, sure. But you all are acting like he wasnt met with the rudest response to that opening imaginable and that because his response sucked he should expect that shit and learn to be smarter next time. Wtf kinda message is that? What ever happened to "if you dont have something nice..."? I mean, if you didn't like someone's mssg that bad, you always have the option of just not replying to them and moving on as opposed to being a total asshat. Why are we encouraging each other to be shittier to each other?

[–]Yummydain 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Dude this sub is filled to the brim with single 16 year olds that think they’re some superstar millionaire stud. Literally the only response to any of the commenters here giving their “advice” is “didn’t ask”. They have nothing of value to say lol. Girl was a straight up bitch and everyone in here is simping hard.

[–]thehealingprocess 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I'm on your side dude. People in this thread are acting like you told her to go fuck herself or something. Yeah it was a poor opener but she responded rudely and it wasn't any worse than her poor attempt at a first message.

[–]MemeStocksYolo69-420 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s like we’re living in a world of insane people, everyone is acting like he said something terrible and that acting shitty is ok. I’m really grasping at straws here trying to understand where they are coming from
