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."

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
