'Oh.My.God!' The long-awaited Friends Reunion is finally here. As we prepare for this moment in history to go down, celebrating the 25th anniversary of this iconic show is best done from the safety of our homes this time around. Friends is more than just a show for the Indian Gen Z and they are not shying away from high key 'stan-ning' in their Tinder bios. In fact, Chandler rules on Tinder. When we ranked Friends characters in order of mentions amongst Tinder members, in April 2021, it was Chandler who bagged the top spot. Then came, Joey, Ross, Monica, Rachel and Phoebe. But what about Ross? We did come across a ton of Ross mentions in nearly all bios, especially 'Unagi' and 'My Lobster.'
If you haven't got a date yet, here's how you can Tinder your way through finding the perfect SO to give you company. Of course 'How you doin'?' is a classic icebreaker if you're looking to connect with a Friends fan. But, if you're looking for someone who passes the true-blue fan check to watch the Reunion Special with, try your hand at these six conversation starters.
After all, if they know that you know they know you know, then you bet it's a match!
1. “You're my lobster.”
If they know that you're not talking about dinner, then you've totally found someone who will be "There for you".
2. “I don't even have a plan.”
When you respond with "I don't have a "plan" and they get it, you know you've met your match. "Just so you know, it's not that common, it doesn't happen to everyone, and it is a big deal!"
3.“Hi, I'm <your name>. I make jokes when I'm uncomfortable.”
If this makes them fake laugh like Monica, then you can safely try and 'interest them in a sarcastic comment'.
4. "You've been Bamboozled!"
You'll know they're meant to be with you if you aren't expected to explain to them that it's 'not a sexual thing.'
5. "It's unisex. U-N-I SEX"
If they don't find it to be 'a moo point' then you are lined up for the best online date ever.
6. "Years ago, when I was backpacking across Western Europe, I was just outside Barcelona, hiking in the foothills of mount Tibidabo."
Just pray, they don't correct your pronunciation of "Tibidabo".
So go ahead and use these conversation starters, 'cause somebody is waiting to 'get off the plane' for you!
