Men Of Tinder Flock To Help Woman With Tech Problem, One Guy Ruins It

There's loads of men on this planet. Most of them are nice, some of them are dicks. But the percentage of dicks is a lot higher on Tinder, quite literally.

It's quite remarkable then that a woman was able to ask for assistance with a technical problem on her Tinder bio and almost every bloke who got in touch obliged kind-heartedly - the key word here being almost.

Megan Magsalin, an economics student from Virginia, USA, had the bright idea of asking for help with her Nintendo Wii in her bio.

The 20-year-old wrote: "Someone PLEASE help me with my Wii, it's only showing up in black and white. I'm very serious about this."

But it wasn't just Megan who was serious about her gaming woes. In fact, about 20 guys quickly got in touch with Megan to offer her some advice.

One person said: "Sounds like your Wii is on the wrong TV output, I know that happens with my game cube sometimes."

Another bloke - who said he was a computer engineer and super-liked her in order to provide assistance - asked if she had tried 'dusting off the jacks that plug into the screen'.

So it was all looking good, loads of guys, out of the goodness of their hearts, offering to help a stranger with a problem.

But then the inevitable dick had to come and ruin it.

Like those before him, he did actually offer Megan some advice.

He said: "You need to plug your wii into the HDMI."

Megan replied: "Ahhh okay thank you!!"

But then he fucking ruined it and said: "No problem. Can I powerwash your teeth with my cum"

... And to think it was going so well.

Fortunately, with the help of the less perverted, Megan was able to get her problem fixed, and she thanked the men of Tinder in a tweet which has since received almost 100,000 likes.


Speaking to LADbible, she said the vast majority of people had been 'very sweet'.

She said: "A couple of people progressed things after giving advice in a less extreme way than the one in my tweet, but most messages were actually very helpful and many just told me good luck with my wii problems after I said thank you!

"Maybe, it is a pretty good conversation starter and most people are very sweet and ready to give advice!"

So hats off to all the kind men out there who tried to help... and shame on you know who.
