"I was curious to see how the people that messaged me would respond," Boniface told The Huffington Post.
"Often when I get messages on that site simply complimenting me I just ignore them because the compliments are never sincere and I see no reason to respond, so I thought I would try out a simple response of 'yes' and see what would happen" She quickly found out that most dudes did Boniface said she thinks that the negative response might have "a lot to do with how some men believe that they have the power to tell women what they are, without considering that women have already acknowledged this themselves." "Retracting the compliment seems to be sort of a confused response," she said.

They didn’t find you physically attractive and that can leave you lacking in self confidence.
The downside is the way you decide whether to swipe left or right.
