They say every time you cry over a worthless ex, Lizzo shakes her head in disapproval. People know and love this icon for her uplifting lyrics that help you "dust your shoulders off" from a breakup, or really any life occurrence that leaves you feeling like anything but 100% that b*tch. "Good as Hell" was my go-to song this summer when I got ghosted after over a month of seeing someone. When the queen gave me my confidence back, I rejoined Tinder. And soon after, I combined the two and messaged my Tinder matches with Lizzo lyrics.
It turns out that even though they make amazing self-care starter pack items, Lizzo's lyrics don't really (surprise, surprise) make men on Tinder warm up to you. At least that's what my experience was like. Admittedly, not all of the men I matched with were turned off by the lines I threw at them and some definitely didn't shy away from suggestive replies and double entendres. But none of the messages I received in return left me feeling like the boys were appreciative of the awesomeness I was spewing. And, criminally, none of them recognized the singer's lyrics or figured out what I was doing.
