14 Online Dating Horror Stories That Should Act As A Caution For You

Updated on 14 February, 2019 at 6:03 pm By

Online dating has opened up new doors of meeting your soulmate but there are several dating horror stories which make this trend speculative. Nothing comes without its sets of pros and cons but some of these online dating horror stories and real-life incidents will make you think twice before opting for this dating option the next time around.


Have a look at the 15 creepiest, scariest and weird online dating horror stories that should act as a caution for anyone and everyone availing this service.


1. Revenge through a fake account

“After chatting for about 15 days with the guy (and we were really hitting it off well), I found out that he was my best friend’s ex-boyfriend. He had in fact created a fake profile and got in touch with me just to get back at her. Another reason was that since she (my best friend) was no longer willing to talk to him, he wanted to know about her life and get in touch with her through me, by using this fake account. I had read about such online dating horror stories but never thought it would happen to me.”

2. Awesome threesome


“I hit it off really well with a well-settled and handsome guy. We even met up a few times and it was going strong for a few weeks. On our fourth date, he confessed that he actually already has a girlfriend and they have been together since 3 years. He had made the profile and approached me with the intention of having a threesome. I understand that it might be his lifestyle and personal choice, but I would have appreciated if he had told me so upfront instead of misleading me for so long.”

3. A double-date

“I met a girl through a popular dating-app. We met after chatting over the app for a few days. The date went pretty well and we enjoyed each other’s company. We parted saying we should meet again soon. She told me she was headed home. I thought I’ll stay behind and stroll around since I had no other plans. Turns out I made a good choice because I saw her chit-chatting with some other guy at a cafe. Later she confessed that she had planned two dates back-to-back as she wanted to explore more options.”



4. Disappearing act

“I met her through online dating. We hit it off instantly as our choices and lifestyles matched perfectly. We went out for over 8 months, during which time we met each other almost 2-3 times a week, chatted with each other constantly and were becoming quite serious in the relationship, at least I was. But, then suddenly, she disappeared on me. It was like we never knew each other or she never existed. Her phone number was out of service, she unfriended and blocked me everywhere on social media. We had no mutual friends, so I did not know how else to contact her. It was shocking and heartbreaking for me.”

5. No getting to know people in my life

“He was quite the charmer. We met through a dating app and within the first three meetings itself I was falling hard for him. So taken was I by him that I introduced him to all my friends after about one month of going out with him. My friends too had grown to like him very much. Things started to seem wrong when despite asking him several times he never introduced me to any of his friends and neither did I ever get to meet the people close to him. My suspicions were proved right as I heard him talking to someone on the phone saying, “What’s the point of meeting her? I’m going to break it off soon anyway?” I guess the warning bells were always there.”

6. Clearing my orientation is not an invitation

“It happened over and over again. Every time someone’s profile would match with mine and once we got to chatting for over 10 days or so, they would ask me if I wanted to have a threesome. I could not understand why this was happening. But one of my friends pointed out that because I had mentioned ‘bisexual’ in my bio people were taking it as an open invitation for a threesome. My only intention was to be honest about my sexual orientation with someone who I might end up dating or being in a serious relationship with. But I guess people see bisexuality and threesome as the same thing.”

7. In it for the money

“I installed the app and started using it in the hopes of making my love life a little better. Within just a few hours, I had some great responses to my profile and one even ‘superliked’ which I later came to know was better than just ‘like’. Anyway, she seemed to be quite cool and we started chatting. After a few days, I asked her out on an actual date. We went for dinner at a place she picked. It was the kind of fine dining restaurant one goes to only on special occasions. At least in my social circle that’s how it is. Anyway, I ignored the pricing factor and went anyway. Over the entire course of dinner, she ordered only the most expensive items on the menu and hardly spoke to me. In fact, she seemed to be talking more to the waiter than to me. That should have been the warning signal. When the time came for paying the cheque, she did not even offer to share the bill 50/50. I ended up paying almost 15k for a dinner where I only had a glass of wine and some appetizers. I guess she just wanted to have a taste of the luxurious lifestyle on someone else’s money.”

8. Dream girl

“I was chatting with this guy I came across on a dating app. Mind you, we hadn’t even met yet and had been chatting regularly for about ten days or so. I’m glad I never actually met the guy because he confessed that he had been having wet dreams about me since the day he saw my photos on the app. What a creep!”

9. Masala Dosa

“I ended up being matched with a foreigner. I was pretty pumped about it as who gets to date a ‘gora’, that too through a dating app. He had been visiting India at the time and we met up three times before he was about to leave the country. On his last day here, he messaged me asking, “So, can I put my masala in your dosa today?” Needless to say, I didn’t meet him that day or ever after that.”

10. Body Types

“I’m on the slightly larger side and I’m pretty open about it too. My photographs on the dating app don’t hide this either, except maybe a few head shots. This guy apparently didn’t bother checking my complete profile. After having chatted with him for a few days we decided to meet up. The first thing he says after looking at me, “Oh! I didn’t know you were fat”. I simply walked out without even replying.”



11. A scary and sad date

“My son was brutally murdered under the pretext of a date. He met a girl who he had been chatting with through an online dating app. I was unaware of the whole thing till I got a call from some girl demanding for money or else she would kill my son. I was scared to no end. We belong to a lower middle class family so arranging for such money took some time. By the time I could reach them with the demanded ransom money they had already killed my son. It turned out that the woman was a regular offender and had been getting away with such crimes since years. But, we did not let her go this time. She is under trial for murder as of now but I have lost my only son forever.”



12. It stinks

“I came across this history scholar on a dating app. She seemed too good to be true from her bio so I was instantly interested. We hit off well and things were going quite smooth. I was even understanding of her not being okay with eating non-veg. Though the deal breaker came in the form of a medical disorder. I’m quite empathetic about such things, mind you. But she should have told me about the problem instead of leaving my car stinking every time because of her incontinence. While this may not be a typical one for online dating horror stories, it mattered to me because I love my car.”



13. Consent matters

“I was rather skeptical of using this dating app anyway but the lack of any social life made me do it I guess. I installed it and got to chatting with a guy whom I liked. He asked me my number and even said he wanted to meet up (more than once). I kept turning him down saying that I hardly know him yet. Good thing I did that because I don’t know what would have happened otherwise. One day, while I was leaving from my office, a guy on a motorcycle approached me (just outside my office). At first, I could not identify him but when he wouldn’t stop smiling as if he already knew me, I realized it was the same guy I had been chatting with on the dating app. He invited me to join him at a friend’s party but I denied. He did not take it well and went on to say that I was lucky he was taking interest in him as many girls would kill for a chance like this. I still denied but he threatened me by saying that he will continue to pursue me as he knows my office and my number (I don’t know where he got my number). I ignored his threats and walked off saying he can do whatever he likes but I was not going to give in to his demands. Thereafter, I reported him to the police, blocked him, and uninstalled the app. Thankfully, I have never seen him around my office premises after that incident. I would say mine would be one of the scariest online dating horror stories for everyone to be cautious.”



14. Money makes a woman go mad

“I met a decent looking girl through a dating app. After chatting for a few weeks over the app and then on WhatsApp we decided to meet up. Everything was going smoothly except for the fact that I had to travel a lot to meet her, meaning I was spending too much money on cab fare. Also, I was the one who paid the bills all the time. Meaning the relationship (if there was any) was turning out to be standing on my expenses alone. I should have smelled something was wrong but being the chivalrous kind, I decided to ignore it. Things went downhill when one day she called me to meet up at a mall where she said she was shopping for a cousin. She asked me to meet her at the shop where she was shopping as she was almost done. I thought fine, that way I’ll get to spend more time with her so I went to the shop where I found her in the billing line. When her turn came, she handed over all the clothes she had bought and started shuffling through her bag, I guess looking for her card or the money to pay. Mind you, this was a Sunday so the queue was quite long and people were getting agitated as she was not paying up. She turned to me with pleading eyes and asked if I could pay. Again, me being the gentleman paid up some 5k. After coming out of the shop she apologized and said she will ask her cousin and pay me back within 2-3 days. I asked not to fret and return the money whenever she can. A week went by but she neither paid back nor brought it up that she will. So I gently reminded her to do so. Turns out that I was the bad guy after all for bringing ‘money’ between our relationship and being materialistic. I lost it and told her to pay back as soon as possible. She said she will do so by the next day. But the next day, she had promptly blocked me everywhere (WhatsApp, Facebook, phone) and had even deleted her account from the dating app.”




Though the internet is certainly a fine way of meeting people, these online dating horror stories should teach you to be careful.
