A PANICKED woman has texted 28 friends to canvas their opinions on what the ‘hello’ she received from a Tinder match could mean.
Lucy Parry, 26, also asked for advice on how to respond to what she viewed as an opaque and intriguing message with many potential interpretations.
Parry said: “I sent desperate messages to all my closest friends, a couple of co-workers and my mum. I even popped a message in the Ocado customer service chat.
“One friend replied saying that ‘Hey’ would have been a better greeting, as ‘hello’ suggests they are really uptight and potentially a psychopath.
“Another wondered if the lack of capitalisation and punctuation in the message indicated that the sender might be poorly educated and therefore not suitable for me to procreate with.
“Someone else replied ‘Who is this?’ and my mum rang me for a half-hour sob about where she had gone so wrong with me. So ultimately I was none the wiser.
“In the end, after five hours of agonising, I sent ‘Hi’ and he immediately responded with a dick pic. So I blocked him. Basically, your average Tinder interaction.”
