But Did Your Awful OKCupid Date Hijack Your Phone When You Rejected Him?
Online daters are always eager to share their horror stories — and, oh, do we have them! But, I feel like if your bad OKCupid date makes the New York Post, you’ve reached a whole other echelon of horribleness. A 22-year-old St. John’s University student, who wishes to remain anonymous, shared the grizzly details of her date from hell, well, because the police were involved. That’s how bad.
“It started pretty well. We talked for two weeks before we met in person,” she said.
The couple met for a nice night out in NYC’s Union Square, but things turned sour after a few drinks (as they tend to). The guy tried to pressure to come back to his Brooklyn apartment, the woman declined. That’s when the night really went to hell in a hand basket. The guy wouldn’t take “no” for an answer and followed the woman to the subway, where he threw a water bottle at her (!?). The woman escaped, but not before her date had made off with her cell phone.But wait, there’s more. The dude, who clearly can’t handle rejection texted the woman’s friends from the stolen cell phone, pretending to be her, saying things like, “I’m all right everyone, just a little drunk but I’m home now.”
In addition to that fun, he logged onto the woman’s OKCupid account, uploaded new photos and wrote “I’m available for threesomes.”
OK. That’s really awful. Police are investigating the incident, but in the meantime, women of the world, please add this man to your permanent DO NOT DATE list. [NYPost]
