No matter how socially adept you are, dating's not easy. Even with technology.
Before the advent of technology, it could be a grueling process trying to find people that you might possibly match with. You networked and looked for people with similar interests and backgrounds, hoping to catch that romantic spark. You met, went on a date, and eventually learned if a relationship could happen. If you were fortunate there might be a second date, but you never knew.
Nowadays, dating websites and apps have sped up the process, giving you plenty of opportunities to find people to date. Unfortunately, that hasn't been the case for most people looking to meet that special someone.
From bad matches to horrible dates, the internet has introduced a whole new world of problems to overcome while dating. Tinder was supposed to make it easier, but as these folks tell it, that hasn’t been the case. Read on for real stories chronicling the worst Tinder dates ever.

#1 Father Needed
We met at a coffee shop and she's there early. I order my drink, sit down, then she looks at me in my eyes and says, "Let's cut to the chase. I need a father for my four sons."
I got up and left.
#2 Stealing Tinder Friends
The date went well, just dinner and a walk, and we said our goodbyes. The next day she invited me out to a friend's birthday party downtown as her +1. Fast forward to the middle of the party, I'm enjoying myself chatting it up with her friends and having a good time and next thing I know she absolutely loses it and storms out of the bar leaving me there with her friends. I have no idea why.
One of them told me, "She wants you to go after her!" and I said, "It's only our second date." I stayed at the party while I continued talking with her friends. That was over a year ago, and I still regularly hang out with them. They have since stopped talking to her.
#3 Now The Ex
A friend from class matched with my then-girlfriend. He informed me of the match and proceeded to set up a coffee date. Instead of him showing up to the date, I did. I had the pleasure of watching my girlfriend (now ex) freak out.
