Check Out Some Of Yesika Salgado’s Best Clapbacks To Creepy Men Hitting On Her On Dating Apps

Yesika Salgado is an Los Angeles-based writer known for her poems about body positivity, love, heartbreak, and more. From time to time, the poet gives us a glimpse of her love life and posts the sometimes ridiculous (and hilarious) messages she receives on dating apps. Some men just don’t know how to approach a woman properly and it is likely because of all of these dating apps. It has suddenly become so much less personal. Here are some of her best responses of all time.

1. Nothing like a subtle invite for a threesome to spell out modern romance.

Legit, this LA heat is brutal. A moment in the air conditioning with some ice cold water does sound tempting. That’s what he meant, right?

2. She takes life lessons from some of the most important television shows.

See? Next time your mom says anything about watching too much tv, remind her that it can be educational. Detective Olivia Benson would be proud.

3. What’s sexier than your career ambitions?

We can only assume that that’s what he meant. It is important to have goals in life and it is nice when strangers take an interest.

4. Why not take a page out of their book and use their own lines against them?

Talk about a savage reality check. He didn’t even see it coming and it is gold.

5. Salgado proves that it is never a bad time to shut it down.

It is really important to grow with every new year. Unfortunately, some people just don’t do that and they need to be reminded.

6. Nothing like looking for friends…with benefits?

What do you think is an appropriate pick up line for someone who is 31?

7. Some people just left us, and Salgado, confused.

That’s a sentence alright. Now, what he was trying to say gets a little confusing.

8. Come correct or you might not make it out in one piece.

Like, who was he trying to reach? Also, why is that an opening line?

9. Emoji for Emoji. Seems fair, right?

Some times the shortest conversations are the most impactful conversations. That’s one way to cut it out.

10. To be fair, she does let men know what she wants.

Very Destiny’s Child. Pay the bills and prove you are in it for the long haul and then you get to reap all of the benefits.

11. There’s nothing better than pointing out a comical spelling error.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Seriously, dude. You want to talk a big, inappropriate game and you can’t even spellcheck?

12. Word matter, kids.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Good is fine but do you want good food or amazing food? Same goes for sex. Up your game, fellas.

13. She gets creative with her rejections and they are brilliant.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

There’s being rejected online low and getting rejected by a ghost online low.

14. After a while, some people lose their cool because some people don’t get the hint.

His “Ok ty” response to her blow up is kind of hilarious. That’s one gracious way to accept a rejection.

15. Don’t brag about your anatomical skills if you don’t want to hear about other people’s skills.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Everyone has something they’re proud of. A properly bending elbow is something to celebrate.

16. Let’s cool it with all of the body contact during this hot af summer.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Seriously. It is so hot. Most of us just want to be still and try to stay cool.

17. Some messages are better left without a response.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Don’t even bother dignifying these kinds of comments with responses. They just aren’t worth it.

18. Thankfully a few men are concerned about other people and their well-being.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

Like this fine gentleman. Look at him asking her if she is feeling okay.

19. She even turned that BBC acronym around and left people confused.

CREDIT: yesikastarr / Instagram

A British accent might be boring but they did invent manners. Might be something some of these men should look into.

20. And, when all else fails, summon some Harry Potter help.

Will immortality be the secret to finding a good man?

A Dating Website For Uniformed People Claims A Married Cop Suing Them Isn’t As Innocent As He Claims

A Dating Website For Uniformed People Claims A Married Cop Suing Them Isn’t As Innocent As He Claims

If you’re in a relationship, hold on to them tight. If you’re not, good luck out there because the dating world is mad crazy. Trying to meet people, especially online (is there any other way?) it is rough. Millions of people are trying to find love via dating websites, which means the competition is steep. It’s also challenging to make people not swipe left, meaning, getting someone to be interested in you based on your picture alone is the ultimate goal. So what makes people interested in someone else? If you’re a woman attracted to men, it’s pretty much the same thing since the beginning of time: tall, dark, handsome, and a man in uniform. That brings us to this hilarious yet unfortunate story.

A Florida cop has filed a lawsuit against a dating website for using his picture for marketing purposes. Oh yeah, and he also happens to be married.

Before we go on, we know what you’re thinking: this cop lied to his wife, set up a dating profile online, and got caught, so now he’s suing the company, acting like he had nothing to do with it. 

However, companies of all sorts have been caught in the past for wrongfully using images without permission simply because they came across a random image online. Also, the man is hot! So, of course, these online dating websites would want to attract users by using the image of an attractive young police officer (in uniform) as a way to lure in people who are starving for love (or something else, wink wink). 

David Guzman alleges that he had no idea his image was being used as a marketing ploy for online dating websites until his friends came across his advertisement.

According to court documents, last year Guzman said his friends told him that they had seen his picture and informed him like ‘hey, dude isn’t this you?’ Another person who found out: his wife! Yikes!!

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that his wife asked Guzman why his picture was on a dating website, and he responded to her by saying he “had no idea.” Okay, like that’s going to be enough for her to believe him. By the way, the advertisement that accompanied his picture said: “Bulletproof vest? Nah, it’s all muscle” Catchy and enticing! But yeah, he said he did not write that either. 

The 33-year-old police officer contacted the owner of the dating websites and demanded that they take down his picture from UniformDating.com.

NSI Holdings, owner of Cupid.com and UniformDating.com, didn’t take down the picture. First, they demanded that Guzman show identification, which he did promptly. Then NSI Holdings alleges that they found a dating profile that included his name, his age, and his birthdate and his email address.

Their argument is they have a right to use his picture because he apparently has a dating profile. They’re saying that either Guzman or someone close to him, started a profile and used his information. NSI Holdings also found that the person attached to that dating website did go on UniformDating.com and “that creation of the profile was a momentary dalliance.”  

Furthermore, people who use NSI Holdings dating website sign the terms and agreements which state that they can use your image and information as they please “to reproduce and broadcast the information contained in your profile including your name, photograph” and other submissions “for marketing and other purposes,” without compensating the user. Now that is some kind of bullshit. 

Guzman alleges that the company has still not taken down his picture, and he’s not rolling over and taking this kind of harassment.

Credit: @FCN2go / Twitter

It’s unclear what Guzman is asking for in his lawsuit, aside from the company taking down his picture, but we’re sure some monetary payback is in order.

“Defendant’s use of plaintiff’s image, likeness and/or identity in connection with a dating service impugns plaintiff’s character, embarrasses him, and suggests — falsely — that he, a married person, is presently dating and seeking out other partners,” the lawsuit states according to the New York Post

Legal docs go on to state, that Guzman is “a married man and respected member of his community who has been caught with a profile on an online dating website.” Or perhaps he just got caught with his pants down, so to speak. No! We remain Team Guzman. 

Who do you believe? Let us know in the comments.

A Dad Interrogated His Daughter’s Date Using A Ring Camera And We All Feel The Secondhand Embarrassment

A Dad Interrogated His Daughter’s Date Using A Ring Camera And We All Feel The Secondhand Embarrassment

There is nothing more embarrassing than introducing your new bae to your parents. Now, in the 21st century, it is even more embarrassing because technology is making it easier and easier to get connected. That is exactly what happened with one young woman who was being picked up for a date and her father got on the Ring doorbell and started his interrogation.

This bright-eyed and wide smile man had no idea what he was getting into when he picked up his date for a movie.

As he was waiting for his date on the porch, her father rang in through the Ring doorbell and began to ask him a list of questions. He wanted to know where they were going, what movie they were watching, and what time the movie was starting. To his credit, the young man kept his cool and answered all of Pedro Lugo’s questions.

Yet, the young woman going on the date was quick to interject and deflect her dad’s attention from her date.

Lugo originally told his daughter to wait for him to finish the interrogation but she was not letting him get away with it. She stood there and talked with her dad about when she will be home. While the father insisted 10:30, she was firm in saying 11 over and over again.

We low key love the dad for putting some heat on his daughter’s date.

Like, sure, it is very embarrassing to sit there and have to have this kind of conversation with your dad. However, we’ve all been there. We’ve all had to have these uncomfortable and out-dated conversations so our parents can feel comfortable with us leaving the house like full-grown being with free will.

Also, big kudos to the woman standing her ground and letting her dad know when she will be back.

Dad: “When will you be back?”

Daughter: “Before 11.”

Dad: “Okay. I heard 10:30 again.”

Daughter: “11.”

Dad: “10:30. Don’t make me go looking for you.”

Daughter: “11.”

Daughter’s Date: “…….”

He did make sure she had enough money to take care of herself.

Credit: iam_droiii / Instagram

The dad did say that she technically doesn’t have to pay for anything, however, he wants his first daughter to be independent and able to care for herself. That is parenting done right.

Everyone on Instagram is celebrating the dad and his conversation with the two young people.

These are the conversations and moments we all hate but love at the same time. It shows that your parents truly care and want the best for you. Who could be upset about that?

The whole video is just a sweet reminder of how to parent in the 21st century.

The days of dad meeting the date at the door are long gone now that he can be at work and video call in.

Congrats, Daddy Lugo. This is one video everyone can agree with.

What do you think about the father’s interrogation?
