With millions of users all over the globe, Tinder has taken the world by storm. This innovative dating app has changed the face of online dating, enabling people to meet local people by viewing their profile on social media and either swiping left or right. A swipe right means you’re interested, while a swipe left means you’re passing. You can narrow your search to include people of certain ages and set a distance to ensure that any matches are local. Although Tinder has opened dating doors for many people, there is always a risk of accidents, such as slips, trips and falls after too many drinks; here are some of the most outrageous Tinder date accidents:
The most outrageous Tinder date accidents
The world of dating can be a perilous place and unfortunately, accidents happen. Here are some examples of potential Tinder date accidents:
- Public place slips and trips: you’re dressed up to the nines, tottering around in stilettos and feeling nervous, yet excited about your first date. The next thing you know, you’re on the floor. If you are heading out on a date, try to stay calm, avoid rushing and if you have a lot of walking to do, go for suitable shoes.
- Falls in a public place: many Tinder dates involve a drink or two and alcohol increases the risk of falls. By all means, have a drink to calm your nerves, but go steady; the last thing you want is to end up nursing slip and trip injuries at the end of the night.
Awkward Tinder moments shared on social media
Tinder has become such a phenomenon that users now share their stories on forums and social media sites. Here are just some awkward dating tales:
- Footing the bill: a bar tender shared the story of a couple whose first Tinder date ended in disaster when the man took a call from his girlfriend and promptly left the restaurant, leaving his date to foot the entire bill.
- Second thoughts: one woman went online to tell fellow Tinder users that she had been asked for a refund for her first date, dinner at a Chinese restaurant, after refusing a second date. The man in question sent an invoice, complete with his account number and sort code.
- The awkward first meeting: one waiter shared his experience of watching a first date drama when the couple didn’t recognise each other; their social media profiles clearly weren’t such an accurate representation of their real looks.
