You might think that Tinder and Bumble and FuckPal are the sort of dating sites you need to download to get laid. But, boy are you wrong. You could literally delete all your dating apps and still have the tools to get some if you have a Twitter or an Instagram account.
Yeah, your social media apps are realistically all you need to find someone who might want to sleep with you! Think back to what you’d do to meet people online before you could swipe through everyone in your area. That’s right! You’d probably creep around on Facebook or Myspace to find friends of friends who’d be willing to accept your friend request.
So, let’s revert back to that. Sure, it’s a lot more work than swiping mindlessly… but you’re probably going to find more people than you would on a dating site. And by already having friends in common you’ll probably be more likely to get some action!
I recommend looking through your friend’s profiles for people who might be potential lays. Find people you have more than one mutual friend with! This will make the person feel like they already know you a little bit!
Here are a few steps to Insta/Twitter stalking success:
1. Look through friend’s followers who are people you like
You’re going to want to go through your close friend’s friends. Why? Well, these are people you like. So, the people they follow are more likely to be people you’re going to like. You shouldn’t go through a frenemy’s page because it’s likely the people they follow are going to be their friends. And the company you keep says a lot about you!
Going off that thread, you’re going to want to have a friend in common with your perceived target because you’re going to want them to think positively of you. You’re probably going to have something in common with this person or at least befriend the same people, which hints at compatibility.
2. Follow them!
Before you start blowing up their phone give them a follow! I like following people, waiting for them to follow back (or to accept my follow request) and then liking some of their posts! This shows that not only are you interested but you’re paying attention.
If you want to play the long game I suggest liking and replying to some of their posts over a short period of time to see what they’re about to let them know you really do exist…
But if you’re more into the “fuck tonight” part of this article, then you should definitely skip the niceties and…
3. Slide into the DMs with some serious flirtiness
So, if your goal is to truly fuck tonight you can’t afford to play the long game. And you can’t afford to beat around the bush. Instead of leisurely liking photos I’d hit them with a few quick likes and a message in the DMs.
I’d go for something flirty and forward but not too vulgar!
Then rinse and repeat until you find success!
