When you’re scrolling through Tinder, you never know who you’re going to meet.
There’s a good chance you’ll come across a few f*ckboys, a few damp lettuces, and maybe even a catfish or two. However, if you’re unlucky like this woman, you’ll meet someone who appears to be a decent person but really wants you to help rob a bank.
Danielle, from Houston, Texas, had only just downloaded the matchmaking app a day before she received the bizarre message on October 14.
After initially matching with the potential love interest, the 19-year-old student began messaging him.
Things took a turn for the worse when he invited her to be a co-conspirator in a crime he was plotting.
I’m not attempting to date you in any way. I’m stealing a bank and need an attractive woman to distract the night shift’s overweight guard.
There will be clothing provided. You only need to keep his attention for 15 minutes and 49 seconds to succeed.
Danielle, are you in or out?
Danielle, apparently taken aback by his lack of flirting, tweeted the exchange with the comment, ‘Ok Tinder isn’t working.’
Within days of publishing, the tweet went viral, receiving over 32,000 retweets, and the bartender discovered that others on the dating app recognised her profile from social media.
‘I saw it on a popular meme page lol, you’re literally a celebrity,’ one match said, adding, ‘I saw it in a popular meme page lol, you’re literally a celebrity.’
However, in an odd turn of events, Danielle continued communicating with the master criminal, claiming that he never mentioned his unlawful scheme again.
After the text, he did give an explanation.
Fortunately for the mystery dater, his unconventional technique to beginning up conversations with potential love partners appeared to work on Danielle, as the two are planning a date for next week.
She stated, “We are intending to go out for supper on Monday night.”
Some ladies immediately remarked on how odd it was for a man on Tinder to come out and say exactly what he wants.
Banks of Texas, beware: Danielle and the bank robber have teamed together.
