Dating apps are often more trouble than they’re worth. Half the time the people you match with don’t even message you back, and when they do, the conversation can be painfully awkward.

I’ve been back on the apps for a couple of weeks now and I’ve already had to endure creepy messages about the fact I’m wearing a choker in one of my profile pics. Another guy just sent me a voice memo asking me to meet up that night…during a state-wide lockdown. Pickings, they are slim.

Then there are the conversations that just don’t go anywhere. Either you’re the one asking all the questions, or their responses are so boring that you lose the will to continue.

So if you’re deliberating over whether to delete your dating apps (for the fifth time this year), then let these Reddit posts from r/Tinder be a sign from above, because oh boy, these messages are truly cringe.
