8 People Shared Their Tinder Horror Stories, And I'm Reconsidering Being On The App

Virtually every college student is well aware of Tinder, the notorious dating app. While Tinder is a dating app in itself, it is often used for hookups, and its either a hit or miss for college students.

I recently reached out on my own personal social media networks and prompted followers and friends to share with me their Tinder horror stories, and they definitely rose to the occasion. While I received more than eight submissions, here are comprehensively the eight horror stories that made me reconsider ever downloading the app:

1. Taylor, Nebraska

"I once trolled people on Tinder as Lizzo; I went really hardcore with it and even printed a picture of her face and tried to go through the verification process. Ultimately I was banned, but I regret nothing — plus I got over 99 likes in a day so..."

2. Moe, Springfield

"A boy on tinder put on a blonde shoulder-length wig and wrote to me that it stays on during sex. To this day, I have his profile saved in my meme folder."

3. Jass, West Chester

"I accidentally called a girl fat, she blocked me."

4. Anika, Oxford

"I was talking to a boy and we really hit it off. While we were talking, he mentioned he could never get me pregnant as he was not interested in sex. I figured he might be asexual, which is totally fine! But turns out, he just had a tickle fetish..."

5. Adaline, Cincinnati*

"I met up with this boy to you know, do the deed, and while he was putting on the condom, he came. Right then and there, we never even hooked up. It was the most awkward moment and we never spoke again."

6. Savannah, Arizona*

I used Tinder passport to find matches in Italy since my family is from there and the men are exquisite, only to match with a cute boy and send him steamy pictures to find out we are second cousins. I will never be the same."

7. Analiese, Oxford*

"I would match with multiple accounts that would end up sending me the same longwinded message asking me to step on their balls. After getting tired, I finally asked why he kept matching with me on multiple accounts for me to ghost him, and his response was 'persistence is key.'"

8. Rick, Ohio*

"I ended up going home with one of my Tinder matches after meeting up with her randomly. When I went to her house, it looked oddly familiar, but I didn't question it. She told me to relax and that she'd make me a drink. While she went to the kitchen I noticed an open door. I looked inside and there was a huge camera set up. I was curious and didn't think much of it. That was until she came back and asked me how old I was. I told her I was 18, and she asked if I wanted to help make a video with her. I figured why not, just then a man with a camera and another woman come down the steps — suddenly it clicked. I was at a porno set and I recognized the room because I had watched a video she was in two weeks ago. Long story short, I ended up leaving by jumping out the window."

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
