Eminem’s Lyrics to “Stan” Are Being Used to Pick Up Woman on Tinder

You don’t have to be a Casanova to realize that the words of a deranged maniac don’t exactly lend themselves well to sparking up a romance. That didn’t stop one Tinder user from interpolating one set of Eminem lyrics to pick up one woman on the dating app.

To be fair to Eminem, the lyrics belong to his song “Stan,” which is a fictionalized story about the gradual unravelling of one of Em’s fans. In the song, “Stan” eventually kills the mother of his child in a fit of rage over not being able to gain Eminem’s attention. Yikes.

So how would these lyrics work to get you coffee with the girl of your dreams? The answer is, they probably wouldn’t, and they didn’t, in this case. Reddit user J_Goddard uploaded screenshots of a conversation between himself and a woman on Tinder, and we see that he’s altered some “Stan” lyrics just slightly enough to use them to flirt. The message reads, “Now it’s too late, I’m on a thousand downers now, I’m drowsy/And all I wanted was a lousy letter or a call/I hope you know I ripped all of your pictures off the wall/I loved you–we could’ve been together – think about it!”

If you’re familiar with the original “Stan” lyrics, you probably noticed that the guy replaced the name “Slim” with the name of the woman. In a seemingly rare act of Internet courtesy, J_Goddard obscured his potential dating partner’s name after asking her if he could repost the conversation onto Reddit. She said yes.

J_Goddard’s pick-up attempt didn’t really work out too well, but at least the woman was a good sport. On top of that, other Reddit users offered to buy him some drinks. Nice.
