Stories on online dating
But seriously, sometimes things go so wrong—like endless date with a cringe-worthy guy wrong—that you can't help but wonder why you're on the app in the first place.
Well, SELF asked to hear your dating app horror stories, and you guys answered.
Spending too much time on Tinder, Bumble, or Ok Cupid will make any sane person yearn for simpler times.
You know, like when singles met potential mates at corn husking bees or whatever.
I managed to squeeze out some crocodile tears so the officers wouldn't slap me with public indecency charges.
The lady officer told me to 'never let a man treat you that way again.'" "My first-ever OK Cupid date was an hour late for dinner, which in itself was a bad idea (first-date dinners are the worst). I blocked his number." "I immediately knew I wasn't attracted to him, but I invited him to a party I was going to just to be polite.
After chatting for a couple of weeks, we decided to meet up at a bar.
Everything was going really well, until he got a few drinks in him and he began telling me obviously fake or exaggerated stories about how wealthy and successful he is, which was a huge turnoff.
I got the sense that he was trying to instigate some sort of catfight to feed his ego, and I wasn’t going to play into it, so I changed the subject.I could tell he was annoyed that I wasn’t falling all over him after hearing his bragging."Visibly frustrated, he decided to inform me that his ex-girlfriend knew me, and that when she found out we were going on a date, she’d called me a whore.He wasn't supposed to stay the night, but he lived 45 minutes away, it had snowed earlier, and I lived in a very rural area with a lot of hills and curves.So he decided he was going to stay that night instead of driving home.
