Dive into the funniest and weirdest real-life hookups stories on dating apps! Swiping right on Tinder could lead to infinite possibilities of stories that can be great.
The often weird and occasionally wonderful world of online dating provides fascinating insights into human nature. More importantly, it can offer a load of stories about how guys behave very bizarrely when they are searching for a mate. Our reporter contacted a number of the women he’s met on Tinder, Bumble and the bewildering jumble sale that is Plenty of Fish. They kindly shared their stories of men who frightened, bemused, bored or even sparked feelings of pity.
The only thing these women have in common is that they have all experienced an evening, sometimes more than one evening, out with a journalist working for Derbyshire Live. They are mostly from the East Midlands, aged between mid 20s and mid 40s, and all their names have been been changed. Jenny said: “There was the guy in his late 40s who was a who was already drunk when I arrived on the first date , continued to drink red wine by the gallon on a school night, disclosed he was into raves and then proceeded to take a video call from his mum while we were in the bar.
Sheena said: “I think the worst ones have been the one who asked if he could bring his mum and the one who lied loads on his profile. In our messages, all the pictures he’d sent beforehand were soooo old that I barely recognised him when we did meet.

Honesty is the best policy but there are a significant number of men who use dating apps for a bit on the side.
I guess I should have been grateful for his honesty! Elizabeth said: “The morning after the first night someone stayed over, he told me about his wife over breakfast.
The search for love in the digital age tends to stir up a lot of anxiety. As evidenced by the countless dystopian portrayals of technologically mediated love that come across our screens as well as real-world conversations with friends and colleagues, we’re collectively wary of online dating and its implications for the future of romance and human connection. Meanwhile, IRL origin stories are seen as sacred. Why are we so hesitant to believe that online dating can work?
You can meet the person you’ll marry on Tinder — but you can also have some extremely strange experiences. These are the six weirdest.
Fast forward into the date and he disappeared and came back holding a sandwich-sized bag half full of what looked like broken glass. Crack, my Tinder date had crack. I politely declined his offer and then when I had the opportunity, made an exit. He sat next to me in the restaurant booth and proceeded to slide a butter knife up and down my thigh.
He then went on to ask what my response would be if he told me he had five dicks. Yeah, never saw that guy again. Then afterwards, while eating dinner, the conversation was so awkward due to nothing in common, I couldn’t even look him in the eye. He asked if I’d like to come over for dinner. This is not normally something I would agree to, but I did since I knew his mom.

He proceeds to get nail clippers out of his pocket and starts clipping away at his filthy nails. He then proceeded to show me his room or more specifically, his extensive alphabetised porn collection.
I went on a date with a guy who loved sport, in particular, rugby league. We organised to go for a nice walk along the esplanade in Cronulla and he brought his footy along with him I know, this sounds a bit lame, but I found it super arousing. After our walk, we stopped in the park and passed and kicked the footy around. He threw a really hard pass at me and it jarred my finger.

Was going to go to a bar with a girl I met on Tinder. Got out of her car, crossed the street, and then awkwardly shook my hand. Told me she forgot her ID at home, apologized, and then left. What made it more odd, is she had sent nudes, full face nudes not photoshopped face swapped I could see the chest tat on her in person no mistaking that.
That said, the silver lining of a weird, funny, or just plain bad date is that it always makes for a great story. It was ridiculous, but, lucky for him, we both started cracking up. I was SO excited. I got super dressed-up and went to the campus bar to meet him. I guess I drunkenly gave my number to a random guy at a party who happened to have the same name as this cute guy in my architecture class.
It was super embarrassing but I made myself stick it out with a smile until the date ended. I meant the one in my apartment. He never even offered to buy me a drink! Conversation was nonexistent. I was already into this guy—his pictures were cute and the texting was good.
