Happy Valentine’s Day from that guy on Tinder

I am in no place to scorn Tinder users. For a single 22-year old girl, Tinder has been chillin’ next to Twitter on my homepage on and off since my freshman year of college. I’ve met some incredible people from it (a Lincoln Center trumpet player, a fancy NYC chef, a guy who owned a very cute dog) but I’ve also had some horrible experiences from it (guys bringing more girls along to the date “just in case,” literally all Bernie Bros, a guy who lied about owning a very cute dog).

But now that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I’ve decided to showcase the most romantic part of Tinder – the creepiest and most cringeworthy messages that have left a lasting mark in my saga of online dating. You may not want to send these Valentines to someone you swiped right on, but who knows – these guys certainly thought it would work.

  1. Just found you (via Discover) and NOW I have to check out Tinder… This could be the new Nine-Gag 😉

    And before you check… I’m AWESOME. No cute dog. One amazing wife. And an untreatable case of wanderlust.
