13 Times Tinder Nightmares Reminded Us Dating Is Weird
Ah Tinder. We've all tried it, and maybe even met someone amazing through it! Several of my friends are in serious relationships with people they met on the app — one of them is engaged to her Tinder match — but for every success story, there are a thousand duds. And in those duds, some pure horrors. Enter, @TinderNightmares, an Instagram account dedicated to posting those horror moments on Tinder . . . for our amusement.
The well-curated account run by "Uninspirational" who also runs @TextsFromYourEx, shows us the true colours of Tinder. It's a place for people to meet, sure, but it's also a place for people to road-test dodgy (sometimes just insulting) pick-up lines, tell a few lies, expose a few quirks, or just be brutally honest about themselves — which are usually the most disturbing part.
With a new book out just in time for Christmas, we couldn't think of a better time to relive some of the most excruciating Tinder Nightmares — just be thankful it's not you.
