We’ve all had cringeworthy dating experiences, sure, but what about the horror stories? You know – the ones where you literally think you’re on an MTV prank show from 2002? Well, this is where the people of Reddit have kindly stepped in.
Tinder’s bravest survivors have flocked to a thread named ‘What is your Tinder Horror story’ to share their most teeth-clenching and stomach-churning dating disasters.
And now, bless their little souls, we’re all going to delight in their misery.
1. Dude, where’s my car?
PointyNipples69 (interesting username choice) has a story about his mate that’s so epic, it could really be in a blockbuster starring Ashton Kutcher.
“My buddy isn’t the smartest man. He picked a chick up and drove to a motel. They were walking into the room and she says, “oh shit, I forgot my purse in the car do you mind if I go grab it?” He says, “yeah that’s fine,” and tosses her the keys. 5 minutes later he walks outside wondering where she is and his car is gone.”
AYUP – the lady this poor dude planned on wining and dining stole his ride. Don’t fret though, PointyNipples assured readers his friend’s car was returned after it was found a week later by the Baltimore police department.
2. She’s just not that into you.
You know what’s not ideal? Finding your significant other on a dating app. An experience known all-too-well by JazzFan419.
“Got a Tinder notification on my phone… realised I don’t have Tinder and was holding my girlfriends phone.”
3. Okay… he’s too into you.
Yellski_ is a lady who knows the pain of being harassed by a guy who is just TOO. GODDAMN. KEEN.
“The night I mentioned my workplace, I saw a guy walk past that looked a lot like him. I hadn’t met him in person so I wasn’t 100%.
I forgot about it and a couple of days later, it was quiet in work but my phone battery was low. I said I’d speak to him later before my phone died. Cue him coming in 10 minutes later with a fucking iPhone charger.
