    Sy Thomas, a British comedian, transformed himself into a woman in order to see the differences in how men and women interact on Tinder.

    To do so, Sy underwent a makeover and created a Tinder profile under the name Simone.

    He told BuzzFeed his inspiration for this experiment came from chatting to his female friends about their online dating experiences, and the questionable messages they’ve received.

    Sy found that he "had more interaction in three days as a woman than I've pretty much had in three years of online dating."

    Some of the messages that Simone received were pretty innocent in nature...

    ...and others were just downright disgusting.

    "I'd heard from a lot of female friends about dick pics and creepy messages, but I had never experienced it so it was a real eye-opener," Sy explained.

    He told BuzzFeed that the greatest takeaway was that "genuine and nice messages are well received, especially in contrast to the awful ones."

    And if you were wondering, Sy is still single and on all the dating apps. As a man.
