Woman posts screenshots of her nightmare Tinder experience
The world of online dating can be an absolute shit-show. If you have never experienced it, you may want to take a moment and thank all the gods who have ever been worshipped, since the beginning of time.
There are plenty of people who find each other online and go forth to have rich relationships, or at least great sex. Good for them. Then there are the horror show interactions you hear about that make you clutch your pearls and look at your annoying husband with the starry eyes that he deserves. That man who regularly drives you crazy with volume at which he manages to eat a bowl of cereal will look like McDreamy after you read this little recap of a Tinder nightmare a woman posted on Imgur this week.
“So I matched a guy on Tinder. He seemed pretty normal as first, a few quirks here and there, but who am I to judge, right? Matched, had a brief conversation, asked for my number and I gave it to him,” the woman wrote next to her gallery of screenshots. “Talked two or three nights ago and agreed to go on a Wednesday date. After agreeing and chatting on the phone, something felt off. He was too offbeat and I began to feel uncomfortable. The following day he said a few things that didn’t sit with me. This is was the final thing that did it…”
Behold the nightmare/ cautionary tale. If something ever strikes you as “off” about a person… you should probably follow that instinct. Especially when it comes to arranging to meet someone in real life.
Maybe not a great way to kick off a first date — asking someone if they are on birth control. That is creepy as hell, and makes a lot of really odd first date assumptions: namely that you think this person is going to have sex with you. Unprotected sex. Okay, weirdo.
Okay. We’re reaching peak-level crazy. Thank God there hasn’t been a date yet.
“My brain thinks at a much higher level than yours.” Romance.
Is there a manipulation tactic this guy hasn’t used yet?
Sure. Let’s just put all of this CRAZY behind us and go grab some tacos. What is wrong with this guy?
Oh, for the love of-
Just, no. It’s tough out there, ladies. At least he let his crazy show before this poor woman endured a date with this psycho.
While we’re talking about horrible text interactions, does everyone know how to use the “block” function on their phone? It’s fantastic. Just click the little “info” button on the person’s name on your phone, and happily hit “block this caller.”
