Have you ever found yourself staring at your phone, trying to compose the perfect text message to someone you really like? Well, you're not alone. In a viral Reddit video titled "r/Tinder Conversation Advice in a Nutshell," the struggle to craft the ideal message is hilariously depicted. Let's dive into the comical world of texting mishaps and the quest for the perfect text.

The video starts with a guy named Josh, who is desperately seeking advice on what to text Laura, a girl he met on a train. He wants to make a good impression and doesn't want to blow it. The group of friends around him tries to come up with the perfect message, each with their own unique suggestions.

One friend suggests starting the text with "Hi, Laura, it's Josh from the train. Great meeting you. Come get this." While the others think it's pretty good, someone points out that it sounds more like a corporate email than a text to a potential romantic interest.

As the conversation progresses, different suggestions are thrown out, including using emojis and referencing things they talked about before. One friend even suggests deploying an emoji, like a crying wah-wah face or a winky kitten. The unexpected comment from another friend about women going crazy for punctuation adds to the comedic element of the video. They debate whether to include exclamation points or even 50 of them, which leads to a silly scene of them screaming at the phone.

Amidst the chaos, one friend suggests referencing the train conversation with a cute message: "Choo-choo. It's Josh from the train. Next stop, dinner." The group agrees that it's really cute and could work. However, another friend brings up an important question: What's the end goal of all these texts and dinners? The answer is simple: they want sex.

The video takes a humorous turn when one friend suggests sending a provocative image to Laura. The idea of sending a fully erect "d*** pic" with a quarter in the frame to show its size is met with shock and disbelief from the others. They quickly realize that sending a normal text, smart and funny, that references a previous conversation is a much better approach.

As the video ends, the friends reflect on their overthinking and panic, wondering what happened to them and to America. One even mentions George Washington and the founding of the country, adding a touch of patriotism to the conversation.

The video received numerous comments from viewers, expressing their amusement at the unexpected twists and turns. Some even mentioned the TV show "Man Seeking Woman," which they believed captured the essence of the video.

The video titled "r/Tinder Conversation Advice in a Nutshell" hilariously portrays the struggles of crafting the perfect text message. It serves as a reminder that sometimes simplicity and genuine connection are key when it comes to dating. So the next time you find yourself agonizing over the perfect text, remember to take a step back, relax, and let the conversation flow naturally.

Was not expecting Colonel Tigh to suggest deploying an emoji.




"What happened to us? What happened to America?" *Flag drops down* LMFAO! 🤣🤣🤣 From dating to patriotism.


Never ask a woman for male dating advice. They have no idea why they are talking about, or why they like somebody, or what to say. They have probably never asked a guy out in their life. Also don't ask good looking men. They are can say I want to sit on your face and still get laid.

Man seeking woman was really a hidden gem with an acquired taste
