'Need to find a husband ASAP': Top Tinder Moments of the Week (May 18, 2024)

As summer approaches, people seem to getting more and more desperate on dating apps. Seriously, if these screenshots of dating app conversations serve as any indication, then it's quite clear that a lot of y'all are looking for something to materialize as soon as possible. That something could be a committed relationship, an uncommitted situationship, or something in that confused middle-ground territory a few bizarre people seem to enjoy. Many of these conversations include misinterpretations…

25+ eyebrow-raising Tinder pickup lines: 'You look exactly like my future ex-husband'

Who doesn't love a bold swing on the dating apps? It could be a home run or a big swing and a miss, but you can't help but appreciate the attempt at the very least. Dating apps have become so ubiquitous in our culture of “courtship” that we have made swiping left and right a passive part of our daily routines, like brushing our teeth or checking our emails. This portion of the dating process has lost most of its flair and excitement, so when you do receive a message that genuinely catches your…

20 instant red flags on dating app profiles: 'I don't understand why it says I'm 39, I'm actually 58'

In theory, swiping through potential partners on dating apps should not be the soul-crushing activity that it is. It should be thrilling to assess potential suitors, to scroll through their pictures and profile information while imagining what a relationship with them could look like. Unfortunately, reality has made it nearly impossible to enjoy the eternal misery of swiping on the apps. Perhaps it's our fault for always opening these apps during moments of loneliness and general low points. We…

'I still cringe': 20+ online dating mishaps from hopelessly single folks

'I still cringe': 20+ online dating mishaps from hopelessly single folks

Without physical and social cues, dating can get lost in translation really quickly. When written incorrectly, a joke can get easily misinterpreted, sarcasm can remain unclear, and the potentiality for a first date can go down the drain in an instant. This is the reality of how most relationships begin in this day and age. It's sort of like how actors and performers discuss the differences between auditioning and working on a play or film. Mastering the art of auditioning is its own craft, sepa…

'You love me? You don't know anything about me!': Top Tinder Moments of the Week (January 12, 2024)

This one goes out to people who are trying to put themselves out there this year! It's not easy to get on the apps and start swiping, especially when the other singletons on said apps are ridiculous humans who need to be called out on their nonsensical behavior. From people who are strangely into the fact that their potential date has other single roommates to folks who boldly acknowledge that their love language is “manipulation in all its forms,” the wild world of Tinder has continued to main…

'Let's try this again': 20 Worst Dating App Bios and Profiles

Who hasn't come across a bizarre dating app profile in this day and age? It is an unfortunate part of contemporary culture that when we have to resort to re-downloading the apps in order to “put ourselves out there,” that means we also have to be bombarded with cringeworthy, creepy, and straight-up odd profile descriptions. It used to be that only certain apps attracted these kinds of weirdos, but they're just everywhere at this point. People aren't even masking their controversial opinions, pr…

‘He blocked me straight away’: Top Dating App Flops of the Year

On dating apps, your fate lies in the hands of the ever-changing whims of the algorithm gods. Match? Nope, not this time. What about now? No, again. Well, when is it my turn, you ask, and the answer is (malicious laughter) NEVERRRRRR. I'm being dramatic, of course, you'll find someone. I did, a couple of times, and they all broke my heart, and now I'm single again. See? It totally works. Now that we're all nice and grumpy, we can genuinely enjoy the dating fails below.

'You don't think it would be weird being my boss?': Surprised dude gets offered job by desperate recruiter on Tinder

Thirst traps on LinkedIn and now job recruiters on Tinder? What on this gosh green earth will we come across next? It's almost as if we've stepped out of the bounds of reality and now are hurtling forward on some alternative bizarro timeline in which the rules of the universe have been completely flip-flopped.

'Hi, I'm rich': 20 bad pickup lines that surprisingly worked

'Hi, I'm rich': 20 bad pickup lines that surprisingly worked

Almost everyone has been both the giver and receiver of a pickup line. What's most surprising to us here at FAIL Blog are not necessarily the pickup lines that failed or even the ones that worked. We're curious about the pickup lines that should never have worked but somehow did. What does that say about the state of dating culture in 2023 and what does that say about how we have lowered our collective standards? On a positive note, it's nice that we have normalized the concept of taking big sw…

'I only matched [with] you as a social experiment': Top Tinder Moments of the Week (November 19, 2023)

Finding kindness on dating apps is like an elaborate game of Where's Waldo: you know it's there somewhere, but you have to scan through a lot of nonsense to find it. Of course, there are success stories that allegedly make all of those hours spent swiping worth it. Sure, the chances that you will find your soulmate might be slim, but at the very least, you are destined to get a couple of good stories and maybe even a free meal or two out of the whole “dating thing.” In this economy, that's wort…

'Don't waste your time [swiping] right': Top Tinder Moments of the Week (November 5, 2023)

There's an odd smell in the air. No, it's not the smell of a home-cooked email. No, it's not the smell of a late-night pizza delivery you forgot you ordered and then didn't pick up while it was still warm because you fell asleep on your couch. The smell we're talking about is the smell of desperation emanating from the wild world of online Tinder messaging. These days, people are getting more and more direct online, which in theory is a good thing but in practice, it's just plain old weird. The…

'On a scale of 1-10, how high maintenance are you?': Top Pickup Lines of the Week (October 8, 2023)

No one ever said that the most memorable pickup lines had to be the great ones. Some pickup lines are creative and clever and wholesome. Those are obviously strong in quality. For this list, we've included a few of those ones for good measure. However, cynical-minded folks like me will be more interested in the pickup lines that are so bold and so bad that somehow they're good?! We love a bold swing and a miss here at FAIL Blog, and you have to hand it to some of these singletons because they r…

Now that the summer is coming to a close and now that no one had the summer flings they really wanted, it's time for our weekly roundup of the top Tinder moments, courtesy of Reddit's endlessly entertaining r/Tinder subreddit. There has to be something about the August heat that makes people become especially forward on dating apps, or perhaps people are always like that now and we're just grasping at straws for excuses.

It's not exactly easy to play it cool in a situation like this. Picture this: you wake up one morning and you scroll on social media for a bit. Then, you complete your lazy morning routine by checking out your dating app matches and messages. You start to message someone new, you exchange witty texts, and you agree to catch up later because you both have to get ready for work. You then check in with the person you had already been messaging for quite some time now because the two of you have a…
