Woman went on Tinder date with man who told her his wife was dead – she wasn’t
Terrible first date stories are easy to come by.
From the weird to the wacky, every individual will have a tale of romance woe.
However, one woman has shared a date story that is not only odd but disturbing too.
In a video captioned: ‘Sorry Ashley your husband told Tinder girls you were dead,’ she explained the dating story from hell.
‘I went on a Tinder date with this guy who was a teacher,’ she said. ‘He was 25, he taught elementary school kids, I’m like “oh that’s so sweet”.’
She continued: ‘He had a son, he said that his son’s mother had passed away tragically. She was dead, he was a single dad – how horrible.
‘The other teachers would watch his kid when he would go on dates I was like, “oh that’s so sweet – how nice of them”. He liked running, he seemed like a normal person.’
Like most people, the woman decided to do an Instagram stalk on the man to see how the story had unfolded.
It is at this point that the story takes an eerie turn.
‘I went to stalk her on Instagram and I went back to show my friend and looked back on a different day and when I did she had new posts,’ she explained.
‘And so I stalked even further and found her whole family and career history on the internet. Turns out she was not dead at all. She was very much alive, and they were very much together in a relationship.
‘And he was so normal. He was the most normal person I’d been on a date with in a long time.’
The woman then decided to confront him about his serious dishonesty.
‘I confronted him about it and told him that he lied and that she was actually alive and I was like, ‘what the f*** dude?’ she said.
‘And he told me that I was lying and that she was actually dead… she was alive.’
Understandably, the story garnered much attention and those in the comments were troubled at the man’s deception.
‘Oh wow..that’s like serial killer vibes,’ wrote one viewer.
Another added: ‘I interpret extreme normalcy as a red flag. People like that are typically being very inauthentic.’
Some even shared their experience of being the ‘Ashley’ in the situation.
‘I was the ‘Ashley’ for many years,’ disclosed one commenter.
‘He told his ladies we had a green card marriage. Bruh, I’m from Canada.’
Is this the worst date story you have heard?
