Teenager, 18, Has Quit Tinder After Date Accidentally Sends Him Screenshot Of His Message
Dating in the 21st century is a treacherous business, with plenty of pitfalls ready to trip you up when you least expect it.
After enjoying what he thought was a successful first date, he decided to ask his Tinder match Rachel if she wanted to meet up again.
He wrote: "Hey, I had a really nice time last night. Would love to see you again some time?"
But rather then getting the traditional 'Yes, I'd love to' or 'I'm sorry, I don't think this will work', what Harry received in response was a screenshot of his own message. Bit strange.
Yet that is not all he received. Below the screenshot was another message, 'LMAO'.
This was subsequently followed by an 'Oh my god I'm so sorry,' but by then the damage was already done.
Now, we don't know what Rachel's intentions were and she's got no obligation to say 'yes' to a date with anyone. But if she was laughing at him, it feels a bit harsh.
Tinder is a cruel b*****d sometimes.
Sharing his tale with the masses, Harrison posted a screenshot of their exchange to his Twitter account, with the caption: "I'm deleting Tinder."
Speaking to LADbible, the 18-year-old said he didn't really understand what had gone wrong.

He said: "I thought it was fine, like it wasn't really significant in any way. I didn't think it was that bad at all, we both seemed to get on pretty well.
"It honestly came out of nowhere."
Adding: "I was like 'oh' and laughed, you have to. I didn't respond and just deleted her number."
Since he posted the story, it has been retweeted more than 24,000 times and liked by around 264,000 people.
And plenty piled into the comments to try and console him.
One user said: "Keep your head up king."
A second person then commented: "Pls tell me this is fake please bruh."
While another added: "I'm asking my whole community to pray for you during this awful tragedy."
But somehow not everyone understood what had happened, with one person asking: "I'm a bit dense can someone explain."
Luckily there was help on hand. Responding to the request for some clarity, someone said: "She took of a screenshot of his message with the intention of sending it to a friend to laugh at him, hence the 'LMAO'. But she sent it to him by mistake. Ouch."
It happens to the best of us, Harrison.
