Worst Nightmares, Realized: Siblings Reunite Via Matching On Tinder

Dating in this modern hellscape is already a nightmare, but I think the only thing that could make it worse is accidentally swiping right on a brother I haven’t seen in 16 years. That is the awkward hell that Erik de Vries and Josephine Egberts, two Dutch twentysomethings looking for love, are going through.

Erik and Josephine were separated from each other after their parents’ divorce, reports the Daily Mail, and have lived apart for 16 years. Luckily, the magic of Tinder brought these long-lost sibs back together.

Erik swiped right on his sister’s hot profile, and once the match was established, started flirting with her, because Tinder is nothing more than a vehicle for a quick hand job and a drink on a Tuesday night. However, something didn’t sit quite right. The girl he was flirting with seemed too familiar. When they finally met up, all was revealed. Reports the Daily Mail:

“When I saw him, it was suddenly very clear,” Josephine told DatingSiteKiezen. “It was so special to see my own blood brother again after 16 years.”

Special is one way to describe it. [Daily Mail]
