I think that it is fair to say that as single ladies, we have all tried out Tinder, the dating app. It’s been around since 2012, so I have to believe that almost every only person has tried it at least once. I remember when people started talking about it. It was so unique! Swipe right if you think the person is cute or swipe left if you don’t. It was so fun!
Since then, they have made many changes and have made the app so that people who pay and upgrade can see who has swiped right on their profile. It’s still pretty easy and fun. The two best things about it are that you can easily create a profile via your Facebook account, and you can delete your account just by the press of a button. No snooping around for hours trying to figure out how to disappear.
I have to admit that I am guilty of trying out Tinder several times. It’s quite funny if you think about it. I would create an account, get a date, go on the date, and delete my account because it was so horrible. Then, I would take a break for a while, get lonely, create another account, get a date, go on the date, and delete my account again. I did this three times. For some reason, I am sure that I am not the only one to have done this.
With all of that being said, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. Boy, do I have horror stories to tell you, but first, let me tell you my worse! However, please don’t judge me because I am going to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
My Worse Tinder Date Details
The very first thing that he wrote to me after we matched was, ‘’ Hey!’’. Right then and there, I should have run! I mean, that’s not very original. Anyways, we begin to chat, and the conversation wasn’t really about asking each other questions about our lives, what we do, what we like or dislike, it was about, straight up, how, and when we were going to meet. It seemed evident to me that he wasn’t interested in knowing more about me at all. He just wanted to ‘’see’’ me first, he said.
He wanted to see if we ‘’clicked’’ because if we didn’t, he didn’t want to spend any money or time pursuing something with someone that he wasn’t attracted to. I get it; however, dude, come on! Is it only about looks? Now, I usually would have flushed this guy, but I didn’t, and I still don’t know why. Was I that lonely? Anyways, so he askes to meet me in a park close to where we both live. I agreed. A park seemed safe.
I drove there and parked my car next to his. I knew it was him because he had told me what kind of car he drove and it was the only one in the parking lot. We both rolled down our window, took a glimpse at each other, and smiled. He was handsome. He looked like his picture but seemed a few years older in person. He then asks me to come into his car, which I thought was weird because we had texted about going for a walk. Either way, I didn’t feel comfortable at all. There wasn’t anyone in the park. So I told him that I preferred that he come out and we chat by the cars, which he did.
He was very tall. Like approx. 6’4 tall, but very handsome. He began to ask questions about my career, asked if I had children then, asked the 100$ question, ‘’ What are you looking for?’’ My God, I hate that question! How am I supposed to know what I am looking for without knowing him? We all have our goals, yes, but what if I think that he’s pathetic? What if I don’t see a potential relationship with him?
The Change In Attitude
What if I think his only good trait is that he is cute and decided that I only wanted to have fun? Those are the exact questions that I asked him. You should have seen the look on his face!
Right after the ‘’having fun’’ comment, his face changed. His attitude changed entirely. Ok, perhaps I should not have said that but come on! We have all had one-night stands, right?
He stopped asking me questions immediately. Then, he looked at me in the eyes and moved closer to me. I knew then and there that his only interest was to ‘’have fun’’. He moved in for the kiss, and that is when I pushed him away. I looked at him and asked, ‘’What are you doing?’’. That’s when he looked at me like I was an idiot and responded, ‘’ I am trying to kiss you!’’.
‘’ Yes, I can see that!’’ I replied. ‘’But, why? We don’t even know each other. We just arrived here less than five minutes ago. This is not what I want!’’. He then replied, ‘’ Well, you mentioned before that you might want to have fun.’’.
‘’Yes, I did, but not without knowing anything about each other!’’ I replied.
He then continued and tried to kiss me again. This time, he pulled me close to him firmly. It was even hard to breathe. I felt so tiny and defenseless. I was trying to push him away from me, but he was holding me so tight that I couldn’t move.
Now you’re probably getting a little stressed by reading this, I know. But don’t worry, I was able to get away. I pushed him as hard as I could, and he let go and pushed back. I told him that I was scared and that I didn’t feel comfortable at all with him. I started walking towards my car, which, if you remember, was parked right next to his.
He followed me and said that he was sorry. He said that he thought that I was so beautiful and that he couldn’t help himself. I got into my car, looked at him through the window, and drove away. What a relief it was to be back to safety again!
To this day, I still can’t believe that this happened to me. I could’ve been much worse, I know. I was lucky, I guess.
The moral of this story is never, ever go on a first date with someone where there aren’t any other people. Don’t trust anyone. Yes, online dating is fun and exciting; however, there are many crazy people out there, and you never know when you may cross paths with one.
I have many other stories to tell, but this one is the worse one! The others are simply WTF stories and will probably make you say, ‘’Poor her!’’. Stay tuned.
