TikTok is delivering a stellar masterclass in how not to speak to people, with users sharing the most offensive messages they’ve ever received from dating apps.
The trend was sparked in response to TikTok user Rachel Wilson’s sweet tribute to her boyfriend.
While Wilson and her partner appear loved up onscreen, in a montage of adorable images accompanied by a sappy song, social media users took the opportunity — and the track — to document the worst romantic interactions they’ve ever had.

Cumulating thousands of clips in the process, the social media platform served up a highlights real of how not to talk to people — ever.
One user revealed while swiping through a dating app, they came across a ‘hungry’ romantic ready to offend.
“You’re a pretty gal but I didn’t mean to swipe on ya, I was trying to get a chip crumb off my screen,” the person’s rude message read.
Another said their worst message was from someone who enjoyed exercising all of their options in life.
“I don’t want to end things with you, I just want to pause them so I can try it with her — and if it doesn’t go well, we can just pick up where we left off,” the man’s message explained.
One woman says she was told by a not-so-significant other that she apparently reminded him “more of a creature than a girl.”
And yet, it didn’t end there.
Many users felt the need to inform their matches of what they thought about their appearance, before claiming their interactions were purely an “accident.”
One user received a text that said: “Christ ur [sic] ugly. Totally didn’t mean to match my bad.”
While another was told: “I don’t think you’re good looking. People asked what you looked like and I’d show other girls some times.”
And though the series of videos chronicled the grim, the bad and the absolutely horrific, one man’s polite message with a sinister twist took the cake.
“I know this is really stupid to ask but would it be alright if I send you a dick pic some time? I’m really sorry, you’re just so beautiful I had to ask but it definitely would impress you… sorry tho [sic] I’m not trying to be rude or anything.”
In a study conducted by the Queen Mary University of London, researchers found women were three times as likely as their male counterparts to receive messages on Tinder.
Another study by Jennie Zhang and Taha Yasseri of Oxford that analysed over two million interactions involving 400,000 heterosexual users from the United States, concluded men initiated 80 percent of the conversations.
Still, with messages like that, we’d rather a swipe left.
