Aziz Ansari has just published a book on the perils of dating, the aptly-named Modern Romance. It is a self-help guide to matters of the heart using “data” and “science” and the expertise of co-author sociologist Eric Klinenberg and since publication, Ansari is now considered an expert on the subject of all things dating.
So when Ansari stopped by The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon was ready. He had viewers send in screenshots of the worst first texts they’ve received from interested parties for Ansari’s review. The texts are a sad and revealing look at the inner workings of some men. The tl;dr of the entire sketch: spell check, guys, spell check. And if you’re sending a first text to a potential bae at 4 a.m. stop and reconsider your life choices.
And if you haven’t seen the book trailer for Modern Romance,/em> slap on a mustache and watch now:
