These Tinder Horror Stories Will Make You Think Very Hard Before Swiping Right

By : Ben Hayward |


I’m sure there are thousands of happy couples out there who will be eternally grateful to Tinder for setting them on the path to true happiness – but where’s the fun in that?

Better to focus on the ones that didn’t work out so well, and thanks to Reddit we can do just that. From daylight robbery to literally getting pissed on, these guys have experienced it all, so here for your enjoyment are some of the worst Tinder experiences out there. Think before you swipe guys, think before you swipe.

1. The bailer – buttermuseum

Showed up to the restaurant, waited about 30 minutes. Ordered myself some food and was about to leave when he texted me: “There’s a liquor store across the street from the restaurant, can you pick me up 2 six packs?” I told him I wouldn’t. He says he’s decided to play frisbee with his dog instead. Deleted app, went to liquor store, picked up wine and went home.

He texted me for a month or so after to tell me he’s just bought tickets to see me dance (I’m a retired ballerina, haven’t been in anything for a few years). Then he texts me an hour after and tells me how great I was on stage. I never responded.

2. The pisser – Baconbaconbaconbits

Tinder date with a ‘famous’ chef where I was taken to a dive bar, where he promptly starting talking about how famous he was.  We drank and watched sports, he proceeded to tell me “You’re cute” and this eventually went to “I am going to make you bleed.” He then invited one of his friends to come along. I went outside and he came up to kiss me. I was drunk, so I kissed back.  Eventually he proceeded to tell me how he was “being charged with battering his ex-girlfriend, but he totally didn’t do it.”

Eventually when it came time to pay the bill he had lost his wallet. Of course, I get stuck with it. “I’ll pay you back.” (Needless to say I never got a payment). Then he leaned up against me. I thought he was trying to kiss me again, but I looked down, and he was peeing on me. In the street. Peeing. On. Me. I swiftly, being too inebriated to drive, went and got myself a hotel room and a hot shower.

Never again.

3. The father – therealJayT 

A little back story: A few years ago I was dating this girl and her father REALLY hated me. Which was a bit odd as most parents love me (or at least lie about it real well). He was just a huge prick and I always called him on his shit. Anyways, her parents got divorced, we broke up a few months later etc.

Fast forward to around a year later. Me and girl from Tinder were dating for a few months and things were starting to get serious. We’re at the point where she wants me to meet her family. Mother, step father, little sister. Why not? I have no problems meeting them, lets do it I said. She told me how excited her step dad was to meet me as it turns out we both happen to be Kansas City Chiefs fans.

Well, fuck me if it wasn’t the same asshole father of my ex girlfriend…

4. The thief – pointynipples69

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, “oh shit, 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.

For clarification, yes he got his car back. I think the police found it about a week later. I don’t think she was ever caught though. If you’re in Baltimore swipin’ don’t let her near your keys.

5. The sperm donor – rearwindows

The only Tinder date I went on, the woman told me her goal was to get pregnant in the next few months. I noped right out of there.

6. The addict – PM_ME_A_SULTRY_LOOK

I dated someone I met from tinder for a month. Seemed good on paper: masters student, yoga teacher, cultured, etc. Found out she was doing heroin and didn’t consider that 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 a problem. We broke up and she went back to her junky ex-bf. Bullet dodged.
