Tinder, like most other online dating options, is very hit-or-miss. Sure, you could find the love of your life online.
Or, if you’re like most women, you end up meeting many, many questionable people along the way. Case in point: Imgur user msmessyclean posted a series of screen grabs from texts that show how a promising conversation devolved after her potential date asked about her birth control status.
“He seemed pretty normal as [sic] first, a few quirks here and there, but who am I to judge, right?” she wrote with the photos. “…Talked two or three nights ago and agreed to go on a Wednesday date. After agreeing and chatting on the phone, something felt off. He was too offbeat and I began to feel uncomfortable.”
She immediately canceled the date after he asked about birth control, leading him to tick off every box on the “creepy guy checklist.” He said he didn’t need her because she’s crazy; that he makes a ton of money; he was “double-booked” anyway. Eventually, he just started calling her incessantly even when she told him she wouldn’t answer.
He even demanded that she call him. Luckily, she didn’t take the bait. “What you’re reading here was within a 2.5-hour time span,” she wrote. “Keep in mind that I was working, I can only glance at it here and there.”
