" And all the women said guys would say just, “Hey,” “What’s up? But in the context of a woman’s phone — where there’s all this other, similar nonsense from other guys — you just come off really boring. It’s annoying that that stuff works, but it kind of does.We kind of figured out if a guy just asks a woman to do a specific thing at a specific time, that was enough to make vaginas explode. This was something that frustrated both men and women to no end — this idea of, well, what’s happening here?
