Girl Explains On Tinder Why She Won't Send Nudes, But Guy Makes Clever Argument

Even considering that a bunch of apps exist to make dating as easy as possible, the world of finding companionship remains a minefield.

In fact, the modern take on it presents a series of new challenges and a rash of potential matches harassing women for nudes is one of the major ones.

After all, the act of sending them involves putting a lot of trust in someone who can easily betray it.

Angry ex-lovers sharing explicit photos with their friends is unfortunately an oh-too-common occurrence—now more than ever.

Unfortunately, we live in a society in which we sexualize women, yet demonize them when they are sexual.

Cases where these nudes end up going public often see the woman receive more backlash for sending them than the other person does for spreading them.

One Australian woman took this potential situation as a reason not to send nude pictures.

However, one man's response impressed her enough to consider making an exception.

According to 24-year-old Catherine's Tinder profile, dating her feels as wonderful and surprising as getting an extra McNugget.

That said, she makes it very clear to potential suitors that they will not be receiving any nudes and she's happy to explain why.

And to explain her position, she harkened back to a movie you've statistically seen, Titanic.

As she put it, "A girl in 1912 has her naked body drawn by some random dude that no one has ever heard of. "

She then reminded people that despite Rose locking said drawing in a safe on a boat that would eventually sink, her nudes end up on television 84 years later.

"No one is safe," she concludes.

Honestly, that's some pretty sound logic. You can't trust any man, even the ones who say stuff like "you jump, I jump."

Although he appreciated where she was coming from, one man still found an opportunity to shoot his shot.

Not only did he go into the record-breaking and culturally significant achievements that came from that nude, but also what it meant to the two who first shared it.

"A movie like that is remembered, not for the nudes but for the love story these nudes helped blossom into the romance of the century, envied by many," his message reads.

He also pulled the fame card.

He went on to illustrate how a similar nude from her could prove so powerful that it would benefit her family's future generations, so she should send one "for her children."

I have to admit that this guy showed some serious ambition and I'm apparently not the only one who thought so.

Not only did Catherine claim to have never seen a better opener than his, but thought it worthy of showing to her mother and narrowly worthy of breaking her rule for him.

What seemed especially promising is that she already started referring to the potential children as "ours."

Shockingly, the story does have a happy ending.

Although this bold strategy didn't quite get the man in question any nudes, he said he and Catherine eventually hooked up and became friends with benefits until he had to move to Canada. Sounds like it worked out!
