The 10 Most Tragic Moments Of Internet Dating

It's the busiest time of year for internet dating. Here are the moments that will leave you longing for the days we all met at the local dance

1 | Getting matched on Tinder with someone way out of your league and saying hello within 3 seconds. Silence. Yes, you were an 'accidental' swipe.

2 | Going through the first ten or so profiles when you open Bumble – clearly made up of the most popular people on the app – only to match with exactly none. Congratulations: you've just re-lived your high school school disco while sat on the toilet at work.

3 | Falling in love with someone on Plenty Of Fish and composing a thoughtful, honest message touching on the various ways you feel your hopes and interests converge. Two minutes later, they appear in your 'who viewed my profile' list. And then never reply.

4 | Finding 'about me' pages that read like victim statements, pleading to be sent no more penis pictures or sexual propositions. Men: pack it in for Christ's sake.

5 | Reluctantly showing a close friend the pictures you've selected for your Tinder profile. They laugh for ten minutes, then say: "it looks nothing like you!". That was the whole point.

6 | Coming across a real life friend's profile on Tinder and thinking: yeah, maybe that's it, maybe she's been the one all along, maybe we've just been to afraid to admit it because we get on so well as friends... and then not matching.

7 | Seeing an old flame's profile, looking hot in the way only old flames can. Wasn't staying in the house supposed to help you avoid this type of thing?

8 | Scrolling a Plenty Of Fish profile, everything is falling into place: she's funny, beautiful, the right age… then you see it: "Doesn't drink alcohol." Already the first date's a disaster.

9 | Getting matched with someone gorgeous on Tinder and wait a second – she's replied! Unfortunately, it's a reply that includes the words 'credit card details'.

10 | Meeting online, beginning dating, then logging back into the site that brought you together. You notice you're both listed as being recently 'online'. No one can say anything without incriminating them selves. You continue in this loveless stalemate, until someone proposes.
