She Took His Car

From pointyn*pples69:

My buddy isn't the smartest man. He picked a chick up and drove to a motel. They were walking into the room and she says, "Oh sh*t, I forgot my purse in the car do you mind if I go grab it?" He says, "Yeah, that's fine," and tosses her the keys. 5 minutes later he walks outside wondering where she is and his car is gone.

EDIT: For clarification, yes he got his car back. I think the police found it about a week later. I don't think she was ever caught, though. If you're in Baltimore swipin' don't let her near your keys.

He Peed On His Date

From Baconbaconbaconbits:

[I was on a] Tinder date with a "famous" chef where I was taken to a dive bar, where he promptly starting talking about how famous he was. We drank and watched sports, he proceeded to tell me "You're cute" and this eventually went to "I am going to make you bleed." He then invited one of his friends to come along. I went outside and he came up to kiss me. I was drunk, so I kissed back. Eventually he proceeded to tell me how he was "being charged with battering his ex-girlfriend, but he totally didn't do it."

Eventually when it came time to pay the bill, "he lost his wallet." Of course, I get stuck with it. "I'll pay you back." (Needless to say I never got a payment.)

Then he leaned up against me. I thought he was trying to kiss me again, but I looked down, and he was peeing on me. In the street. Peeing. On. Me.

I swiftly, being too inebriated to drive, went and got myself a hotel room and a hot shower.

Never again.

They Kept Running Into The Same Scary Dad

From therealJayT:

A little back story: A few years ago I was dating this girl and her father REALLY hated me. Which was a bit odd as most parents love me (or at least lie about it real well). He was just a huge prick and I always called him on his sh*t. Anyways, her parents got divorced, we broke up a few months later etc., etc.

Fast forward to around a year later. Me and [a] girl from Tinder were dating for a few months and things were starting to get serious. We're at the point where she wants me to meet her family. Mother, step father, little sister. Why not? I have no problems meeting them, lets do it I said. She told me how excited her step dad was to meet me as it turns out we both happen to be Kansas City Chiefs fans.

Well, f*ck me if it wasn't the same a**hole father of my ex girlfriend...

He Knew A Little Too Much

From yellski:

Started speaking to this guy on Tinder a few months ago. He seemed alright, but not my normal type. Regardless, we started speaking for a couple of days. I didn't realize how stupid I was until now, but I mentioned where I worked.

The night I mentioned my workplace, I saw a guy walk past that looked a lot like him. I hadn't met him in person so I wasn't 100%. I forgot about it and a couple of days later, it was quiet in work but my phone battery was low. I said I'd speak to him later before my phone [went]. Que him coming in 10 minutes later with a f*cking iPhone charger. Yes, this might have been a nice gesture if you know, I'd actually met him face to face before.

This was really weird because he said he lived the other side of the city from where I work. I wanted to cut ties straight away, but I thought I'd return the charger after I finished work.

He said he would be in a bar around the corner, so when I finished I met up with him, gave him his charger, and made some excuse to go home. To my horror, I saw on his Instagram that he'd taken a smiling selfie earlier in the day with the caption, "I'm now a taken man ;)." I'd seen him like not even twice.

To make it even scarier, for a good few weeks, every time I'd finish work I would see him casually walking past on his own, exactly at the time I finished. Really creeped me out for a while.
