If we've learned anything from the Tinder dating app, it's that exercising a certain degree of caution is often necessary. Sometimes, you're able to find an engaging conversation with a person you find interesting. Other times, you might find yourself an exchange along the lines of the 'conversations' gathered below.
Take a look at these 20 Tinder exchanges, ranging from laugh-out-loud funny to just plain mortifying!
First, this failed attempt to be a player:
via: ImgurThis guy tried to make sure he got a date...and in doing so, got none. Karma, right?
via: ImgurReason #2593 to keep helicopter parents separate from your dating life!
via: ImgurGetting a flurry of pestering and ultimately sexual one-word messages has got to be one of the most obnoxious things to happen on Tinder.

This person might need some help.
via: Tumblr...Is he okay?
via: TumblrThis message leaves a lot to be desired in terms of grammar. Why not have some fun with it?
THIS IS NOT A BOOTY CALL, OKAY.

Some people have negative amounts of chill.
via: ImgurThere's eager, overeager, and then whatever this is.

Two cases of using tinder for reasons outside its intended purpose:
via: ImgurHonestly, this seems like a great idea. The more the merrier! (Please don't let recently incarcerated strangers off of Tinder crash with you.)

When classic pickup lines go horribly wrong...
via: ImgurThey couldn't even finish the "did you fall from heaven" idiom before jumping right into the proposition.

Tinder logic at its finest.
