Woman quits dating after trawling man’s Tinder profile with nasty list of ‘red flags’
Jenny Bennett was horrified when she came across a man’s Tinder profile full of what she said were “red flags” – including being a feminist and having tattoos.
Almost all of us have at least one dating horror story, but one woman’s recent experience looking for love on Tinder led her to stop dating altogether after finding a man’s profile that contained a long list of things he thought were “red flags.” – including feminism and being a “pet mom”.
Jenny Bennett, 43, was horrified when she came across the profile of a 40-year-old man named Chris and discovered that his bio was full of mean comments about things that would make her reluctant to date someone.
The union president said he didn’t think Chris was “that cute” when he found his profile, but decided to scroll down and read his bio – which later turned out to be a huge mistake.
Even though there is very little information about himself in his profile, Chris has huge expectations for anyone who wants to swipe him and give him a chance.
And while some of Chris’ “red flags” are personal preferences, such as his decision not to date women with tattoos, others were questionable, including his desire not to date a single woman who identifies as a feminist or anyone who is patronizing. choice in abortion rights.
Chris deceptively banned “pronouns” from his dates and said he wouldn’t date anyone who was pregnant or a single mother.
Some of Chris’ most disgusting comments include calling plus-size women “beached whales,” calling LGBTQ+ allies “rainbow sympathizers” and referring to mental health drugs as “head drugs.” “red flag”.
And Jenny, from British Columbia, Canada, said that if Chris’s profile is anything to go by as a date, she’d rather stay single.
She explained: “If that’s all that’s out there, I don’t need it. It’s a very shallow dating site. Luckily I didn’t meet that guy at the bar.
“[When I saw his profile] I didn’t think much of it because honestly, it’s pretty standard. He is no exception. There are many people like her who just expect perfection and then end up looking like someone’s legs.
“I’m getting used to Tinder. Dating in your 40s is terrible. I don’t really understand why. I don’t know if it’s because we grew up on the internet and people expect perfection when in reality life is pretty messy .”
What bothered Jenny the most was Chris’ decision to ban her from taking mental health medication, as she felt it showed that even those who try to ‘get better’ are a red flag in his eyes.
She added: “It said no pet moms, no head meds. That confused me. You can’t have a mental illness and not want to get better. I’m pretty confident, but when I got confused and read it, I thought, ‘Maybe I shouldn’t be taking these the medicines”.
“He has a huge list of what he doesn’t want – but he doesn’t write anything about how he is. There’s nothing to say, ‘this is who I am and this is good about me’. It’s all ‘this is what you can do.'” ‘.
“She’s obviously super right-wing and one of those people who would never care. People are so quick to block people instead of embracing them.”
The woman shared the man’s list with her friends and they were all “horrified” by what they saw – prompting Jenny to take a break from dating.
He said: “I sent them the profile and said, ‘This is what I have to deal with. Now this is my date.” When I shared it with my friends, their reaction was terrible.
“I moved from Vancouver to a smaller community about four years ago and it’s opening my eyes to how different it is.
“I’m taking a break from dating for a minute. I’m happy to be single and have my own house and all my stuff, but it was just about having a partner.”
