DM With Caution- Our Fierce Readers Share Their Most Cringe-worthy DMs Ever

Being a femme on the internet can be a dangerous thing. Just like in real life, there’s the added peril of being sexually harassed by creeps while spending time online. Whether it’s on innocent social media sites like Instagram or dating apps like Tinder, direct messaging systems are basically an easy way for random weirdos to send us the strangest and most inappropriate messages of all. While some are downright scary at times, there are plenty of other instances when these messages are just laughable because of how ridiculous they are. 

With this in mind, we asked our FIERCE readers to share with us the wildest DMs they’ve ever received from men. While there were way more eggplant emojis than we are comfortable with, there were also a lot of really funny experiences. Still, it’s definitely enough to make us consider setting our personal accounts to private. Here are the most outrageous responses our readers shared with us.

1. The indecent proposal.
