Man On Tinder Was Looking For Hook-Ups, But People Saw Something Odd In Pictures

Online dating can be a nightmare, but people continue to turn to the internet in hopes of finding true love. The problem with dating websites is that people usually aren't what they present themselves to be. One man on Tinder was looking to meet someone, but he forgot that he left a clue about his real life in the background.

The man, who used the user name 'P' on Tinder, took a photo of himself in his Dublin, Ireland home. He claims he was looking for someone to share a 'bottle of wine, beer and more' with, and looking at his picture and profile, people could guess why.

Not only was 'P' a little out of shape, with love handles and appearing to be sucking in his stomach, but an unmentioned detail about his life was blaringly obvious to anyone who looked in the background of the mirror selfie. Behind P in another room was a bassinette.

A woman named Linda shared the picture on Twitter. “My mate came across this tinder profile tonight. Extra Douchebag points for the Moses basket in the background,” she wrote.

She included the body shot of P, who neglected to show his face. As he explained on his profile, he’s married and a head shot would be 'too risky', but he offered to send anyone willing to take him up on his tempting offer a proper selfie.

"I swiped right," one person responded, which is Tinder-speak for finding someone attractive.

"No you did not," Linda replied.

"Ha, no I didn't. I took screenshot and called him a hairy nippled prick," her friend responded.

Someone re-wrote P's profile. Their suggestion read, "Out of shape father seeks escape from own life choices. Literally the character from 'your dad's best friend'."

"So gross," another said. "Hope his wife comes across it. She needs to lose this dead weight and get on with her life."

Others mentioned how dangerous it was for the man to be inviting random strangers on the internet to his family home for a hook-up. "He's obviously as thick as he is sleazy .. who in their right mind would invite a random into their marital home ?!?!" One woman noted.

That is the trouble with dating websites like Tinder— a lot of people on it are more trouble than they’re worth. A lot of people, like P, are already in a relationship and are just looking for a one-night stand. At least in P’s defense, he was up front about it.

There are a lot of scammers looking to take advantage of those who are desperate as well. Some scammers will string a person along in email and with phone calls for months, and once they think they’ve gotten your trust and an emotional connection, they will hit you up for money.

They’ll tell you they want to buy a plane ticket to come see you but that their money is tied up right now, and they’ll promise to pay you back. They may tell you that they are stranded in a foreign country and have been robbed or falsely accused of a crime.

Online dating apps make meeting people the old-fashioned way—when out, or through friends—look appealing again.
