Dating App Chat REDEEMED!

By Kristen Carney on     --    

 

Here's a peek at an exchange with a guy who hit me up on Instagram for a lil help with his texting/messaging game. He had been chatting/bantering with a girl via a dating app and all was going well UNTIL he.... insulted her parents.

He thought he was "teasing" when in reality he was just being blunt and harsh. He really blew it big time with that misstep. BUT, after consulting with me, he TOTALLY REDEEMED HIMSELF. 

Check out our communication below to see how he turned things around. And, note the part circled in RED so you can see...

I like to do a little research on what’s happening in dating apps. So, from time to time I lurk around apps like Tinder and see what guys are putting out there. More times than not, it’s not great. Check out the photos from one of the biggest selfie offenders I’ve come across.
