If you know anyone actively dating in 2018, (hiiiii) you know how hard the struggle can be. The thought of dating apps make me want to vomit, but I've definitely used them quite a few times. However, this girl killlled the app game by matching with 200 guys, having them all meet up with her at the same time and place, and somehow convincing them to compete to date her.
The fact that she convinced these guys to do it, makes me BOW DOWN.
One of the guys Spencer, who didn't compete (proud of you bro), gave a complete recap on Twitter.
"I am about to tell you an epic tale about subterfuge, dating in the 21st century and the fall of human civilization. This actually happened to me and it could happen to you too," a man tweeted Sunday. "So a few weeks ago I was on the Tinder machine shopping my soul around and I match with a very attractive young lady. No bio. Fairly innocuous."
According to Spencer, he matched on Tinder with Natasha Aponte a few months ago and they started a polite conversation which eventually resulted in her telling him that she was interested in seeing him.
"She goes, 'actually, I have this huge presentation I'm workin on for my job, would you be offended if I got back to you in like a week or two when Ive got more free time? Youre cute and I want to meet you Im just too busy rn,'" he recounts on Twitter.
Classic ghosting line. But then, she surprisingly came back.
'HEY IM FINALLY FREE LMAO... my friend is DJing near Union square around 6 tomorrow I was wondering if you wanted to go for a bit,'" the text read.
"I'm like well I'll be damned. Genuinely didn't think she would message me," he wrote.
Spencer agreed to meet with Aponte at Union Square on Saturday, and being a gentleman, showed up on time, promptly at 6 p.m. However, as he soon learned, he wasn't the only one in Union Square waiting for a date with Aponte. Dozens of other men, all with similar Tinder experiences to his showed up for the DJ set and date as well.
When he spotted his date, he says that instead of heading over to meet with him, she stepped up on stage to reveal her master plan.
"She gets the mic and is like thanks for coming out I bet you're all wondering what this is about and I'm like yeah what the f*** is this about," Spencer tweeted. "She then says so I know all of you here are on tinder."
"Then she says I've invited you all here for a chance to go on a date with me and proceeds to give a hunger games speech about what its gonna take to date her," he wrote. Finally, it started to make sense to Spencer: "ALL THE DUDES THERE SHE FOUND ON TINDER AND TEXTED THEM THE SAME [THING]," Spencer added in all caps.
That's when Spencer tapped out, saying he was "too old" for Aponte's dating game. And maybe some self respect, just maybe. But, some of the other men who came to the park remained to take part and win a chance at love with her.
Aponte had some pre-qualifiers. She immediately dismissed all men who were under 5'10" (rude), had a long beard or were Trump supporters. Then, according to witnesses, she had her prospective dates line up for a race.
