Dating apps are a great way to meet new people and help to expand your dating pool but opening yourself up to a whole new variety of people will include jerks and the like as well.
According to Distractify, a woman's absurd conversation with a man she met on dating app Bumble went viral after being shared on Twitter.
A guy named Conor went off the handle after the woman, Ashley, simply enquired what he did for a living.
He went off on a rant and accused her of being a gold digger.
Fortunately, this story has a happy ending.
In case you aren't familiar with Bumble, it is similar to Tinder but gives power to women.
For instance, women have to initiate a conversation with their matches or else they disappear after 24 hours.
So, when Bumble caught wind of this conversation they promptly blocked the guy from the app and wrote him this amazing open letter:
“[Ashley] wasn’t hoping to figure out if your wallet was sizeable enough for her to move into your house and start cooking dinner for you after vacuuming your living room while you clock in a 9 to 5 work day. Instead, Ashley was (wait for it, Connor, because this is where things really get interesting), viewing herself as an equal. It might sound crazy, but people connect over the basic routines of life. You know… the weather, working out, grabbing a drink, eating, and working.”
“And while you may view this as ‘neo-liberal, Beyonce, feminist-cancer,’ and rant about the personal wounds you are trying to heal from classic ‘entitled gold digging whores,’ we are going to keep working,” Bumble said. “We are going to continue to build a world that makes small-minded, misogynist boys like you feel outdated.”
“We are going to hope that one day, you come around. We hope that the hate and resentment welling up inside of you will subside and you’ll be able to engage in everyday conversations with women without being cowardice to their power,” they wrapped up. “But until that day comes, Connor, consider yourself blocked from Bumble.”
