We rounded up 14 of the most cringeworthy, most I can’t believe how bad this is going Tinder dates we hope you can’t relate to.
1. Frog prince.
“My friend went on a tinder date with a guy who had an amphibian/frog fetish. They watched two hours of frog documentaries before he asked her if she’d be cool with dressing like a frog… Clearly, the answer was no.”
2. Bad beginnings.
“This was back when tinder first came out and wasn’t quite as known as a hookup app. We met and had a great first date. Second date was even better. Things kept going for about two months when she told me she went out with me originally in an attempt for a Dinner with Schmucks type thing where her and all her friends would bring the worst Tinder date,” said one Reddit user.
“We both really liked each other, but I couldn’t get over how we started.” (Watch: A Tinder match goes crazy when his date cancels. Post continues after video.)
3. Birthday celebrations.
“Buddy of mine hit it off with this girl and after a few days, she invited him over to a house party. ‘Sure, what could go wrong?’ he says. He shows up and is introduced to a few of her friends, all guys,” wrote one Redditor.
“As the night carries on, more and more guys show up and very few girls are actually at the party. After they start talking about how they all know this girl they find out that she invited them all from Tinder. Every guy was there not to hook up, but to populate this chick’s birthday party.”
“They looked so different from their photos that I mistook them for bar staff and ordered a drink.”
5. Magic love.
“There are so many closet magicians on Tinder and after one date with one I now ask ‘Why god, why?!’ Keep the bunny in the hat for God’s sake.”
6. First Date Switch.
“A friend of mine rocked up for her date and got the wrong guy. Some other guy was meeting up at the same place with a blonde girl and they did a swap by accident. Took like 15 minutes before they realised.” (Post continues after gallery.)
