Regretful People Share Their Online Dating Horror Stories

Dating, while exciting, can be pretty tough. Getting to know someone for the first time can be incredibly awkward—especially when the relationship begins behind a screen. Although the internet has made meeting new people much easier, it also has a handful of disadvantages. It may only take seconds to fill out a dating profile and have a plethora of matches to choose from, but there’s also a lot of, well, weird and creepy-ness that occurs online. Just take it from the following people, who recently shared stories about some of the worst experiences they’ve had with online dating.


45. Cat-Napping

Went on a date with this cute girl. We talked about an hour and she was fascinated when I brought up my cats. She was very eager to meet them so we proceeded to go to my place. Spent a few hours just playing with my cats. She was about to leave and before she put her shoes on to go, she says to me, “Oh I forgot something.” And went to grab my youngest kitten, (during the time 4 months old) and picked him up and wanted to walk out with him. I stopped her and asked her what was she doing. Her reply was, “I thought you let me adopt him?”


44. Dead Serious

Met a guy on Tinder, we talked for a while on Facebook before a meeting. He decides to come to my work for my lunch break. I was working 3rd shift at the time so this was at like 3 AM. I hung out in his car in complete silence while he played on his phone. Then he started to show me pictures of REAL dead bodies on his phone. I hopped out of his car so fast. That was my first and last Tinder date.
