He was also asked what he thought about first impressions and messaging potential love interests. “You gotta make them laugh. You only get one chance to make the first impression. It’s kind of like the elevator pitch at the job. You only get one chance to show up. So make them laugh. Be a little creative, put some time into it. If you’re going to slide into their DMs, make it worth it.”
And, he also said men should be able to take constructive criticism when it comes to intimacy. Tyler said, “Communication’s important in the bed, and you also gotta be able to take the constructive criticism and be able to give it too. Feel free to give it as well.
