I'm with Katee on this. Unless there's a reference I'm not getting, what the hell is going on? He just texted to throw out obscenities? I love the funny, bad pick up lines, but this is just someone being an asshole.

Do people ever get banned for this sort of thing on dating apps? Not that I need one at this point in my life, but I'm curious what the threshold/moderation is.
No, no, you're absolutely correct - it's just a guy (who apparently can't solve a Rubix Cube) being a complete and utter shit. I don't know if they moderate Tinder at all, as I've never used it and don't know anything about it other than what I post in this thread.

You can report someone as being abusive. Not sure how effective that is, but hey.

To their credit, they used to have a massive spam problem, but I haven't encountered a bot in a long time now.

Wow! I'd have stayed and played the game. And I mean I'd have played HARD to win. Then, after I won, I'd tell her to pound sand because I thought she was a manipulative piece of crap who was way too into herself to be able to have a relationship that is equal for both partners. Then I'd have left her standing there wondering hat happened.

I'm going to take the cynical route and since she lists herself as a "model/actress/whatever", this was never about finding somebody and just a way to call attention to her "brand". Because this is what you do nowadays if you want to be famous but don't actually have any talent or shame. It's the Kardashian Effect, I'd assume.

...it suffers a bit from the forum's image-shrinking insistence, but it should still be legible.

Yeah when the guy posted this on Reddit he said, "I'm giving up Tinder. I've peaked."

Thanks! I knew there was something clever about his title, but I couldn't remember what it was.
And then I waited because I was sure someone would post it here, but nobody ever did, soooo...

I did something like this once. I got a new boss at a job, and he was just miserable to work for, so I found a new job and quit. He insisted that on my last day, I write a resignation letter that said I was quitting because it was a better opportunity, and not because he was an overbearing ogre. So I did. It was a couple of paragraphs, detailing how much I would miss everyone, and that I loved my job, but that the new opportunity was so amazing that I couldn't pass it up. I especially went on about how my new boss was a joy to work with and I regretted not having the opportunity to get to know him better.

He reviewed it, signed off on it, and I took it to HR to turn in.

When I gave it to the HR lady, I told her to read the first letter of every line: "Chuck sucks".

Her response was probably "makes sense. The only way someone could like chuck is if he was giving you bjs"
