You meet someone at the club. You bond over the lousy music they're playing. You exchange stolen glances and Instagram handles across the dance floor. Then you part ways. A fleeting fling? Not if you're willing to slide in that DM.
Here's the thing, though. If the DM slide is what you must do, make sure you do it right. Don't be a creepo. Talk to them the way you'd want to be talked to. Be chill. Otherwise, the person reading it will just make fun of you, like these rightfully jaded women.
