This Creep Offended A Girl Into Canceling Their Tinder Date… Then Went 110% Bonkers
So you match with a girl on Tinder, and you start chatting. You hit it off — it’s a real conversation, not just monosyllabic grunts and emoji and looooooong periods of silence. Things seem to be going well, you set up a date.
And then you make an off-color joke that she doesn’t take well. So badly, in fact, that she cancels the date. Harsh.
What do you do next? Well, thankfully, some dude out there has given us the exact perfect playbook for what not to do, after imgur user msmessyclean uploaded screenshots of their ill-fated convo. Take a look at this mess and watch the crazy blossom from a spark into a raging insanity blaze.
Basically, the takeaway from any insane Tinder freakout boils down to this: Don’t be batpoop crazy. Sometimes you just have to take the L, move on and keep swiping. But there are some damn good concrete takeaways:
- If a woman shuts you down, you have to respect that. You can apologize and try to right the situation, but beyond a few messages, let it go, dudes. If you don’t, you’d better be prepared for her to put those screen shots online and tell all her friends that “Mike from Tinder” is a huge creep with a poor grip on reality who refuses to take no for an answer. That’s never a good look.
- If your mom just died — assuming that he’s actually telling the truth on that one — maybe take a breather from online dating or something. Definitely don’t use that as an excuse for being disrespectful. A Tinder match is not going to fix that feeling, and taking your anger out on her is not making anything better for anyone.
- Don’t inquire if your Tinder match is on birth control before you’ve even been on a date. If she is, she can tell you. Otherwise, you just come off as creepily over-interested in her reproductive setup. No chill.
