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.

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

12. Word matter, kids.

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.

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.

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?

As we highlight Pride month, we wanted to share beautiful stories of LGBTQ+ love. To do so, we recently asked our FIERCE readers on Instagram to tell us how they met their partners and the results were not only hilarious but deeply inspiring.

Love is love and we love this kind of love.

Check it out!

The old slide in trick.

“I slid into the DMs.” – joanacanna

On their start to being ~educated latinas~

“My girlfriend and I met at the end of our first year of law school. She would say that I curved her for a few months before we became close. Almost three years later, we are both attorneys and looking forward to where life takes us.” – legalricanmujer

These two lovers who met while pushing for a joint interest

“We met in boot camp! 10 years ago (we’ve been together 2 /1/2 years, married 1 yr.” –hey_itsaj18

Chicas who started out on the same path and stuck together.

“We met in Nursing school we graduated together. That was 4 years ago, she’s a psychiatric nurse and I’m a geriatric nurse.” – m_a_r_i_a__j_o_h_a_n_n_a

They found love in a pandemic place.

Love in the time of Corona, thanks to Hinge!” – bienvenidarealidad__

Turns out the internet is the ultimate matchmaker.

“On the HER app. The same day she liked my profile she ended up coming into my job. I saw her but she didn’t see me. I ended up messaging her that night when I got off of work & we have been inseparable ever since. 3 years later and everyday I fall in love with her over & over again.” – _yourfavoritepoet_

And this is the most hilarious one of all.

“My wife @chulaworldand I were both seeing the same guy (total 🐶) …… so when we found out about each other we met up! And we have LITERALLY been inseparable ever since. Married on 4/20/19.” –bunuelitas

This Man Posts A Video Highlighting Mexican ‘Avatar The Last Airbender’ Characters And It’s So Accurate

@nacho_libro_ / TikTok

Who here loves “Avatar The Last Airbender”? It is one show that has been around for so long that the fanbase can only grow. The show is a fantasy ride that will take you to some of the most imaginative places. However, one fan realized something no one else did: some of the characters are Mexicans. Here’s what he found.

Roku

Roku, a.k.a. “El Espiritu,” is one of the Mexicanos rocking it in the Fire Nation. Roku’s memory served as a guiding force for Aang along his long and storied journey. It is like that one compa you have who is always able to help you out of a jam. You never know how he will do it but he always does.

Sokka

You might know Sokka as the defacto leader of the Water Nation for a time. When he was younger, Sokka wanted to join his father in the war. He tried his best and left with all of the men to join the fight. However, he was too young to fight and was sent back but was the oldest male and became the leader of the tribe. Much like that primo we all have who is the oldest of the primos and teaches us everything. Where would we be without that primo?

Zuko

Zuko was born into the royal family of the Fire Nation. The prince abdicated his throne and lived in exile. For years, Zuko tried his best to catch the long-lost Avatar to get back into his kingdom. We all know that one friend that is trying to make up for something. At the end of the day, he is a good dude but he just has some things that he has to work out.

“Avatar the Last Airbender” fans are asking for more.

There are so many more people that can be made into Mexican airbenders. The first three are already a success for the TikTok user with more than 234,000 views. Fans want more and it just seems like the perfect time to create more.

And it wasn’t just the setup.

The TikTok user came through with his joke. Not only was the haircut so on point, he included a bunch of easter eggs. One of them was the América jersey that left some viewers screaming. Watch the video here and enjoy.
