A guy looking for love on Tinder thought all was lost after a typo ruined his first message to a match, but now his inspired chat-up technique is going viral.
Imgur user msang12321 matched with Chrissy and said that after spelling “Christmas” wrong, “I didn’t know what to do. So I did what any sensible person would do — I sent her a panda fact.”
And his promise to “be back tomorrow with another” held true as he messaged Chrissy again the next day with a brand new panda fact.
And the next.
And lots of days after that. Chrissy admitted she was “nervous” he wouldn’t send her a panda fact, so this guy’s technique was clearly working (or she’s very, very polite).
The guy says he even set an alarm to remind himself to send Chrissy a daily panda fact.
And Chrissy just kept responding (although she never asks him about himself, just patiently waits for and acknowledges her panda facts).
This guy kept up the facts for 100 days. That’s 100 facts.
Despite naming his Imgur post “I’m not good at talking to girls”, clearly this smooth-talker was onto a winner.
Then things progressed to panda pictures.
And even though Chrissy told him she hoped he’d never stop sending the facts, things came to a heartbreaking end as they reached day 100.
But the mysterious Panda Fact Man, having (possibly) won Chrissy’s heart, was never heard from again.
