It’s the dating app that pretty much redefined romance as we know it…and not necessarily in a good way.
These catastrophic dates will make you feel better about your love life. Here’s the proof.
“On my one and only Tinder date, the woman told me her goal was to find a husband and get pregnant in the next few months.” —Tehan, 23
“Went on a date with a girl who had already told her whole family about me…before we even met. She wanted me to meet them in person on the first date. Nope.” —Harin, 23
“We’re on a perfectly nice date when, 20 minutes into it, she says, ‘I’ll be honest. I know what I need in a man, and you don’t have it.’” —Rahul, 21
“Not exactly my worst date, but potentially my most confounding—a completely different girl showed up. I’m not talking clever use of camera angles. This was a completely different person.” —Ashan, 25
“She drank too hard and too fast, and when I mentioned Danny Devito’s role in Always Sunny, she went on a loud, drunk, standing rant about misogyny and patriarchy. I went to the counter, paid the tab and left.” —Ryan, 26
“She made me watch her homemade rap videos and tried to like her own FB page from my phone.” —Shehan, 26
“Well, I know I was someone’s worst Tinder nightmare: I got way too drunk and puked on myself. Total blackout.” —Channa, 24
“My profile pic is a toilet (long story). The first time I met this particular girl, we actually spoke about toilets for an hour.” —Sahan, 27
“I watched a girl’s cat die…on our first date.” —Yohan, 27
“She showed up in flip-flops, ordered four rum and cokes for herself because it was happy hour, and spent the rest of the evening telling me, in great detail, about all her past Tinder dates.” —Stephen, 22
“Everything seemed normal until, about 45 minutes in, she decided to tell me all about the time she was ‘almost’ kidnapped and all the associated lingering psychological issues still present.” —Rickesh, 24
“I have a friend who went on a Tinder date with a girl who had an amphibian/frog fetish. They watched two hours of frog documentaries before she asked him if he’d be cool with dressing like a frog.” —Kevin, 25
“She looked so different from her photos that I mistook her for one of the bar staff and ordered a drink.” —Shane, 22
“This particular girl seemed good on paper: Masters student, yoga teacher, etc. Then, I found out she was a heroin addict…and she didn’t consider that to be a big problem. I actually had to explain to her the definition of a high-functioning addict, because she felt that having a job and going to school meant the heroin thing wasn’t an issue.” —Mark, 24
“I met up with a girl who brought a binder full of laminated copies of her own poems, and then asked me to read and critique them at the table.” —Yanik, 23
“She weighed her food. She literally brought a mini electronic scale in her purse to dinner, put it on the table and weighed her portions.” —Charin, 25
“She brought me to her apartment before the date because I had to meet her cats. If the cats didn’t approve, it was a no-go.” —Shan, 25
“On a Tinder date, she took me to her cousin’s kindergarten concert and then to a family party. She didn’t even talk to me for the entire four hours. At least there was cake.” —Vishwa, 25
“She took me to the pharmacy to so show me what to use to fix my acne. It was our first date.” —Dinesh, 25
“She texted me, ‘I miss you!!!’ when I went to the bathroom. Needless to say, it was the last time I saw her.” —Dominic, 22
