Let’s face it. If you are on Tinder, then you’ve got a Tinder horror story. And if you don’t, then someone else has a Tinder horror story about you. What’s mine? Well, I’ve got a few doosies, but my favorite is that I once went out with an ex-pro skateboarder who was currently and proudly living in his 2014 Toyota Corolla. My friends and I had so many Tinder horror stories that we made them into episodes of a web series called Timber the Series. Check it out! And here are 10 more Tinder horror stories that will make you want to give up on online dating.
“I started speaking to this guy on Tinder a few months ago. We started speaking for a couple of days and I mentioned where I worked. 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 an iPhone charger. Yes, this might have been a nice gesture if you know, I'd actually met him face to face before." –Yellski
“I thought I was really hitting it off with a guy I met on Tinder - until a few dates later, when he broke down crying in the middle of a heated make out session telling me he thought he might be gay.” –lmu3
“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, "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.” –pointynipples69
"I started talking to this really sweet guy for about two weeks and things were going well. Then I started getting calls from this girl, who he claimed was his crazy roommate that was in love with him and kept trying to get him fired from jobs. Turns out, she wasn’t the one lying, she was actually his live-in girlfriend, and they had moved here together from a different state. Apparently he wasn’t actually a citizen, and was trying to obtain papers. Thanks, Tinder." –RobertBorrelli
“En route to the Worst Date Ever, this guy texted me from the burrito place we were meeting, to tell me he’d already ordered me the salad. I repeat: SALAD. At a burrito place. Also, was I now incapable of placing my own food order? Anyway… After arriving, with my salad ready, beside his plate of tacos he spent the next half an hour telling me about his model ex-girlfriend and how passionate their ‘breakup sex’ had been... last weekend.” –HarveyGonzales
“Met a girl at her work at like, a moment’s notice (She was a waitress and there was literally nobody else in the entire place). We talked for a few hours, then another dude shows up… To meet her. From Tinder. She would later blog about the experience and describe me as 'dull and unattractive.'" –kryptx
"I went on a date with a guy and the entire time he was talking about how men are superior and how there have been scientific studies to show that ‘women have an emotional reaction to the color red when they see it’. I wonder why he was single.” –ilovedawgs
