We Used Joey's Backpacking Story On Tinder To See If We Could Pull
Years ago, when I was backpacking across Western Europe, I was just outside of Barcelona, hiking in the foothills of mount Tibidabo.
I was at the end of this path, and I came to a clearing, and there was a lake, very secluded, and there were tall trees all around.
It was dead silent. Gorgeous. And across the lake I saw a beautiful woman bathing herself. But she was crying...
Crying because she had no matches on Tinder.
Finding the perfect opening line for Tinder is hard. Where once upon a time a simple "How you doin?" would suffice, we now struggle to find the flawless pun, joke, or compliment that will ensure that coveted message back. Which is why we decided to put Joey's Europe story to the test. You know the one. The magic story you use when you want to have sex.
Here's how we got on.

Scientifically speaking, we found Joey's story had a 33% success rate, so was certainly not the foolproof pulling technique that he - and Ken Adams - professed.
Still, those aren't bad odds, and if it's good enough for Ross and Rachel, it's good enough for you.
