Well that didn't stop some crusty old suit called Alex Carter-Silk sliding in the DMs of barrister Charlotte Proudman, hitting her with the classic, "Charlotte, delighted to connect, I appreciate this is probably horrendously politically incorrect but that is a stunning picture."
Somehow, Charlotte managed to resist Alex's panty-dropping aversion to political correctness, instead sharing her reply on twitter:
These days, hitting on women via social media is as commonplace as approaching them in a bar, so common that the latter technique almost seems like a relic of some bygone era. But to do it on LinkedIn - LinkedIn - seems terribly creepy. LinkedIn is where you go to lie about your professional accomplishments in the faint hope you'll land a £50K job. It's where you swap endorsements for 'social media' with friends, so you can both embellish your way into a higher tax bracket. Crucially, it's where you stalk the profile of your ex to figure how much more money they're making than you, before you shit your pants upon realising LinkedIn lets people know who's viewed their profile.
One thing's for sure, it certainly isn't the place to hit on barristers.
It's the digital equivalent of chirpsing people at the job centre. And if you do that, there truly is no hope for you.
