A pick-up artist is attempting to convince men who are looking to sleep with women, that a single chat-up line will have the ladies falling at their feet and even offering them sex on the first date.
Los Angeles resident Maximilian Berger, who runs dating advice and coaching sessions for men around the world, claims a shocking greeting he has labeled the ‘Apocalypse Opener’ will stun ladies with its cocky and bombastic tone, so much so that they won’t be able to refuse the promise of a night of passion.
‘Hey, I know this is kinda weird and pushy haha, but would you like to have sex with me?’ the line begins. I’m not a creep or a pervert, just a genuine guy.

Serial spammer: The Instagram account Feminist_Tinder spotted this Tinder message circulating around. The message has been sent to multiple women on the app by men hoping to secure an easy lay
Working out his message: The Tinder message dates back to 2014 and thought up by Maxmilian Berger, a professional speaker, pick-up artist, and vlogger
‘I would treat you with respect and the sex would be good. I can even make you s****t if the connection is right haha. I will not judge you or think you’re “easy”.
‘So yeah, excuse me if I come across as a little uncalibrated but I think you’re attractive, so what do you think? Haha.’
In a video posted on his YouTube channel, entitled ‘How to F**k Women on Tinder’, Maxmilian explains that he has tried and tested the line himself, and that he has experienced a huge amount of success with it.
However, the line has sparked outrage from women online, many of whom have taken to social media to detail their own conversations with would-be admirers who have tried to win them over by copying and pasting the ‘sexist’ phrase.
One woman, who runs the Instagram account Feminist Tinder, posted one woman’s conversation with a man on the dating app, who tried to use the line in order to convince her into meeting up with him.
Refusing to be fooled by the cliched words, however, the woman simply wrote back: ‘Wow yup just Googled it its copy and pasted from a pick up artist site [sic].’
Many of her friends claimed that they too had received the same message on Tinder ‘word for word’.
‘I always google lines that seem generic and fishy, lo and behold, this one is a popular pick up artist line (pick up garbage is an online community of dirty diaper men teaching other men how to manipulate women into having sex with them.
Bold claim: Maxmilian has shared grabs from his own conversations with women, including this one, during which he claims to have successfully used the ‘Apocalypse Opener’
Would you? In the screenshots shared by the pick-up artist, the woman in question is seen offering Maxmilian her number after initially seeming quite intrigued by the opening line
‘Familiarize yourself with common techniques so they can’t be used on you),’ the person in charge of the Feminist Tinder account wrote.
Unsurprisingly, the message prompted a furious outburst in the comments section, with many women voicing their disgust at the idea of men using such a ‘sexist’ line in order to ‘get laid’.
‘This is disgusting, people are awful,’ one person wrote, while another added: ‘WTF. No.’
The line is thought to have first done the rounds online back in 2008, before Maxmilian mentioned it in his YouTube dating tutorial, however it appears to be experiencing a surge in popularity as men all over the world put it to the test on Tinder, hoping to win over women with their cocky assumptions and crude language.
A quick Google search reveals that the message is a Tinder version of the ‘Apocalypse Opener.’
According to the site Pick-Up Labs, the original ‘Apocalypse Opener’ requires a man to be upfront and ask a woman he’s interested in if she wants to sleep with him within the first few minutes of speaking with her.
The Tinder version is virtually identical, only more graphic. What they have in common is that they are very direct. Men are told that it lays out their intentions immediately and the woman can either accept or decline the invitation to hookup.
The pick up site advises men that it ‘takes balls’ to use the Opener but that the line must be delivered with confidence. An accompanying video also provides more ‘helpful hints’.

The pick-up line seems to be circulating again after Berger reshared it on his Facebook page recently
The line caused a debate on Berger’s forum, RSDnation, after he released the video. One commenter wrote, ‘Do you really think a high value guy would send that?’
One user even commented in 2013 that the line was becoming overused claiming a woman responded: ‘”I swear someone already told me that same line before’.
Maximilian Berger’s Tinder edition of the line comes from a July 2014 video titled ‘How to F*** Girls on Tinder’.
Mr Berger shared the message, adding that men should lie if asked if they’ve used the line before and say they just thought of it.
‘The funny thing is you’re basically just putting all the logical reasons out there for her to have sex with you,’ he said in the video. ‘You’re telling her, ‘Well I’m not going to consider you a slut, no one will ever notice.”
The self-proclaimed dating guru also shares some his own experiences on his Facebook page.
Earlier this month he detailed an explanation as to what occurred when a woman refused his advances and said didn’t want to have sex:
‘We undress, as I’m in the process of pulling down her panties she stops me gently, I immediately stop: “Let’s not have sex, it’s my rule.”… The whole story (and how I turn that beautiful Ukrainian stunner around) will be released tomorrow,’ Mr Berger wrote.
