This woman canceled a Tinder date and the guy went ballistic, blew up her phone with this intense rant
Tinder can be good for so many things—it can help you meet new people, it can cure boredom, it can be a self-esteem booster, and sometimes, if you’re lucky (or unlucky, depending on how you look at it), it can create a really, really good story to tell your friends and the Internet.
The latter is exactly what happened to Imgur user msmessyclean. She canceled a date she had set up with a guy she met on Tinder, because the things he was saying just weren’t sitting right with her. When she texted him to let him know, he wasn’t happy. In fact, he went completely ballistic.
After she received 28 (!!!) crazy texts from the guy who she nicknamed Batshit Crazy Guy (and clearly for good reason), msmessyclean posted eight screenshots of his rant. Because what else do you do in that sort of crazy situation but share it with the world?
Here’s what she wrote:
“So I matched a guy on Tinder. He seemed pretty normal as first, a few quirks here and there, but who am I to judge, right? Matched, had a brief conversation, asked for my number and I gave it to him. 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. The following day he said a few things that didn’t sit with me. This is was the final thing that did it…”
She added this note at the end photo series:
“… and wtfffff. Edit: For those that are asking, he wasn’t strange or creepy at first. It was when I had a conversation with him on the phone where I actually started getting a bad vibe. Phone conversation over, then the next day was where this shit hit the ceiling. What you’re reading here was within a 2.5-hour time span. Keep in mind that I was working, I can only glance at it here and there.”
Rejection can hurt, but no one owes anyone anything. Ranting texts and dumb insults will never help anyone’s cause. In fact, the only good thing to come of it is a good story for the person on the other end.
