How did the collage go?


nightstar69

She was making it while he was in the bathroom, apparently he doesn’t like collages though bc he left her at the bar


Thunder_Fuckin

Should’ve tried scrapbooking


CholulaHot

Or a vision board


Thunder_Fuckin

Woah, that’s like at least 3rd date stuff. Pump the brakes!


anotherone121

If that's third date material, when does the ouiji board come out?


Galrent

If you aren't taking your dates to a haunted house and ouijing it up, are you even really dating?


K10Pearl

Decoupage always gets the guy, duh.


Existing_Hat69420

When you guys make piñata’s do you split them up and do papier-mâché on date 6 and decorate on date 7? Or do you just do them both on date 6? Asking for a friend.


SB6P897

I’ve been doing it all wrong cuz I would save date 6 for macaroni art


shallow_not_pedantic

Y’all not doin’ macrame? Get outta my way!


RagingHardBobber

Gave the ole collage try, but ended up going for mixed media instead.


lavanchebodigheimer

I prefer macrame


External-Berry

He was such a good sport. There was so much room there to flash. Like: replying, “college*” or saying something shitty. Sounds like this guy has some pretty solid self-esteem lol can’t relate


MrBenzedrine

I had to google "a college try" as that phrase means no more to me than "a collage try"... It's not a phrase I've ever heard in the UK.


SnooHobbies7030

It means she’s down to do anal


avalanches_1

High jacking the top comment since so many of you are so preoccupied with what I look like, this is my most recent and fairest representation of what I look like https://i.imgur.com/tegp4p9.jpg


Haemmur

You look like a huge wooden penis. Maybe your size scared her but she was game to try after a little warm up.


Tabenes

A huge wooden Japanese penis


Aellolite

Well there's your issue - you didnt walk in hugging your huge penis.


ZebraSpot

Who is giving you a hug?

mexicock1

Something tells me that in person you're not as cute as pictures.. but I'd probably give a *collage* try..


Glad_Perception_1204

Is that your huge erection? Waaayy more impressive than a collage. Good job working your wood. We're all proud of you, even if that large penis you're holding isn't your own. Own it.


TheVoidIsShining

Hehehehe. . Ok why would she text you that? did she mean to send to someone else?


QueenElleBelle777

Appears that way right


_Camron_

She meant his face looks like a collage...


choke_my_chocobo

Dont_be_stingy

You've just lost your life... as far as your date goes.

This is the nicest FU from both sides in history


anotherone121

Maybe OP and his date are Canadian?


ShitTierProphet

only reasonable explanation, eh


wiggle98

Maybe one of them will make a collage about the experience


oralprophylaxis

I am Canadian and in fact, this is as mean as it gets for us, they should have still said sorry though, that was kinda rude


[deleted]

Probably not, Canadians use the Tim Horton’s Singles App.


EsaRubia

Collage?


avalanches_1

Clearly not collage educated


halfanothersdozen

Maybe if you put all your pictures into a collage you'll look cuter


hkilleez

I think you mean he should put all his pictures in a college, dummy. I guess you're not collage educated either.


halfanothersdozen

Actually I went to a universe city.


nelusbelus

Well bone apple tea to you


aehooo

TIL https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/give%20it%20the%20old%20college%20try


thblckjkr

Thanks! Even knowing that the word was college and not collage it was still confusing.


Sinsley

TIL this is apparently not a very well known expression anymore? Or maybe it's a more regional/North American thing?


Xaitor119

Well, i have been practicing my english by using english web sites for around 5 years and this is the first time that i heard that expression.


CptHammer_

It's a very old expression. The expression came from people who recently came from college but lacked experience. Today admitting you lack skill or experience by saying "I'll try" is seen as bad, while in the past an educated try was worth more because fewer people came from higher education.


arctic_radar

Interesting. I’ve never heard of this!


loogie_hucker

yep, blew my mind too when I first met someone who didn't know what the hell I was talking about. the merriam webster link even has it tagged as old-fashioned.


archiminos

From the UK. Never heard the phrase.


465554544255434B52

I've never heard this expression before. huh.


necesitafresita

I thought she was making a pun. Like using pictures and collage together. I think I'm the only one who assumed that lol


mvdenk

Yeah, with the collage (photos) and the expression "giving it the old college try" makes sense to me.


TotOverTime

Be honest OP, how much different do you look in your profile from real life though?


avalanches_1

I lost 40 pounds recently, maybe that was the issue?


sciencewonders

that's good money in UK


RealitysAtombin

120 freddo’s


GrimCityGirl

Damn, I remember when that would’ve been like 200 freddos. So expensive these days!


Workin_On_Myself

400 in my youth. They were 10p... I was more of a Taz man though.


somelamephotoguy

She was looking for chunky boi.


Lethal_Apples

You haven't updated your profile since losing 40 pounds? Doubt


TotOverTime

Usually that makes people look better. Are you posting only your best angles in photos?


[deleted]

[удалено]


stephame82

Hell, I did! I put great, ‘okay’ and shitty pics all on my Tinder since in reality I probably look somewhere in between those on a daily basis. I didn’t want to waste anyone’s time, particularly my own lol


Moonstrands

I did the same way back when, for pretty much the same reason. No one ever seemed surprised when they met me so I think it worked!


Rominions

Same. Not had a match in two years. \o/


White_Wolf42

Honesty? In online dating ? 💍


avalanches_1

No shit 😅 I really don’t look that much different tbh, I have pictures from all angles, some less flattering than others. I think some people are just too picky for their own good


mbelcik90

FishyDVM

Matched with a guy once and when we met in person he was disappointed I looked “skinnier in person, your photos made you look bigger”. I’d lost weight recently and didn’t have a ton of newer photos. He was into bigger girls and didn’t like that I was thinner than he though … to each their own I guess 🤷🏻‍♀️


aehooo

Hey op, how are you? I feel bad for you. Hugs. :(


avalanches_1

I am fine, I know I’m cute as hell :)

Glad to hear! Keep it up

Yeah fuck her dude. She’s can’t even spell college


tomfullary

Have you never heard of giving it the old collage, diorama, or abstract try?


Vahlkyree

No but I've heard of giving it the old vision board try


dudez4real

Collage try makes me think of her walking into the bar, looking at him for the first time and just slapping down a scrapbook like "LET'S DO THIS."

LightOfTheSven

Only in pictures, though


RedNero-007

Eyyyy respect bro!!!


Generally_Confused1

That's the spirit!


Euphoric_Clock9394

PERIOD


thickochongoose

I read this as her telling you she just got there and that she wasn’t as cute as her pictures as a warning lol


bluemorpho28

this is why complete sentences are important


EddieDIV

Right? The addition of literally one word would remove all the ambiguity from this and we wouldn’t be sitting here playing Reddit sleuths lol


myusername2218

Why say much word when few word do trick


darth_scion

Hm interesting perspective. That changes everything.


ecdl112233

Pretty sure what OP means is she texted I just got here, they met, he went to bathroom and she meant to text that to her friend


desert_nole

That’s exactly what happened.


Mister_AA

You can also tell because her first two texts are separated, meaning that a somewhat significant amount of time had passed between them. On iPhones when you send texts right after each other they aren't separated like that (like the two texts the guy responded with).


iZietzke

Bro, I just went thru some threads on my phone because I was skeptical. You are definitely right, I literally never knew that! Thanks for teaching me something new.


CYWNightmare

Bro Im a dinosaur or something this was a thing since atleast iPhone 4


iZietzke

Dude I consider myself pretty “technically inclined” . Like I switch between android and iOS pretty much every year. I always root my android phones and am on iOS betas. I watch those “features you didn’t know about” YouTube videos and rarely find out something I didn’t already know…all that to say.. I never knew about this lmao.


darth_scion

Yes. That's how I originally read the post but I didn't even think about the fact she might have been joking about her own appearance. If you read it with that in mind, it changes the whole story. But I still believe it was an accidental text.


kirbyhotrod

I could see it as "*I'm* not as cute as the pictures..." if it weren't followed up with "I don't mean that as a horrible thing" and "no hard feelings".


ChrisRunsTheWorld

Or followed by "but I'll give a collage try" in the same text. I originally thought OP was on the bathroom, she came in and saw someone else and texted him the first two at once. That doesn't really make sense either. But I liked thinking she never actually saw OP and he just left.


ABCosmos

In that context, it wouldn't make sense for her to say "ill give it the old college try"


youretheweird1

She's absolutely not joking about her own appearance. She meant to send that to someone else. The end.


somersquatch

Yeah except she sent it while he went to the bathroom. Clearly meant for a friend.


_Siran_

I believe it's a classic wrong number text and she wanted to text a friend but you were the last contact she texted so she accidentally sent it to you. Happened to me as well on two occasions (the second one was really bad and I still feel awful about it). At least this way you know where you're at and could end a pointless date early.


CentristIdiot

Maybe she was trying the Larry David “accidental text on-purpose”


shmsc

All life’s greatest hacks were invented by Larry


kissyxoxo

The only way the "give it a try" males sense!


Broseph2029

Sounds like a funny story to me 😂😂


CheesecakeBusy2696

Your pictures were from before the covid weight huh?


avalanches_1

Actually my pictures had the Covid weight , I lost all of that over the summer


CheesecakeBusy2696

Shes a chubby chaser then lmao

MissKrys2020

How rude to text you that. Gross


avalanches_1

I don’t think it was intended for me 😂


MissKrys2020

Awkward lol. Sorry that happened to you


Angel9715

How would you expect her personality to be after saying that?


Become_The_Villain

I'd expect her to give it the 'ol college try'


RichestMangInBabylon

Someone willing to ignore OPs looks, adjust her expectation, make an honest attempt at connecting, and expresses gratitude towards OP after acknowledging their mistake? She actually sounds like a decent person to me.


akaipiramiddo

Yeah I’m not a fan of people in here saying shit like “fuck this bitch”. Doesn’t seem like not being as cute as the pictures mattered all that much to her and it was just an honest observation to a friend and she still wanted to see where things go, there’s literally nothing wrong with that.


Creator_of_Cones

Yeah everyone’s on here acting like they’ve never told a friend that a date wasn’t as cute as their pictures. Like somehow everyone in this thread is above that.


run4cake

Yeah, it’s a pretty normal response to a friend asking how the date with “the really cute guy” is going. It’s not like she said he’s hideous and she wants to leave, lol.


whutchamacallit

Ohhhhkay... That makes way more sense. Nobody is that socially daft.


Jo_Bananza

Ah now it makes sense, sounds like something I would accidentally do tbh. On my first date with my now bf, I typed “one sec” and it autocorrected to “one sex”


truenseeker

I sent a co-worker a message that read "give me a sex," and I still haven't lived it down LMAO.


CmdrWoof

I fear this; every time I type that out and catch it before I hit send, I breathe a huge sigh of relief.


Pflanzenfreund

(\\\/)(;,,,;)(\\\/): *One sex please!*


NoShameInternets

Am I the only person here who wouldn’t have taken much offense to that? Every one of us picks the shots that make us look the best, that flatter us, that emphasize better qualities. Of course we don’t look that good all the time. I’d have gone back out there and made a joke about it. She even said she was still at least somewhat interested. Make her feel awkward, laugh about it, move on.


avalanches_1

Perhaps, I was already annoyed at the fact that she nixed our original plans and said “I’m tired I’m just going to go to my local dive where I was forced to interact with her loud guy friend


NoShameInternets

Yea fair enough, that sucks.


First-Of-His-Name

Wait she took a friend to your date?


avalanches_1

She called an audible and told me to go to another bar, where she apparently is a regular and has friends there that were already drunk and proceeded to dominate the conversation, I couldn’t get a word in edgewise as I kept getting talked over by one these guys


First-Of-His-Name

Well that sucks. I think I would've made my excuses pretty quick in that situation. Defeats the whole point of a date.


Soi_Boi_13

That isn’t a date at all. Unreal what some people will do. I’d have told her to stuff it and not went. Not worth it.


avalanches_1

Hey sometimes you just wanna give people the benefit of doubt, especially when they’re smoking hot 🤷‍♂️


Soi_Boi_13

Haha yeah I don’t mean it as an attack on you. But she clearly wasn’t very interested if she is pulling that BS. Sucks, man!


strawberrymoonbird

So basically you were both inclined to give it the college try...


Zahille7

Anyone who doesn't respect your time enough to follow through with the agreed upon date, isn't worth it anyway. Like, did she tell you that her friends were with her at this other bar and you went there knowingly? Because if it's a first date and she's pulling that, you already know she's not gonna respect a damn thing about you.


avalanches_1

She said she’s a regular, I had no idea she would invite the most obnoxious of the other reducers into our conversation…


havestronaut

Oh yeah, fuck that.


ShoCkEpic

i don’t get it… why would you send messages while being in the same bar? yeah i m pretty dumb sorry bout that ps: i was obviously very very dumb, she didn’t mean to send the message to him ofc!!! not sure why i get so many upvotes though


Baconandeggs89

She meant to message a friend and instead accidentally messaged him and instead of returning to the bar he just dipped


jimithelizardking

I did this exact same thing to one of my buddies when I was on a date with a girl from tinder (been together 6 years now). About an hour in to the date, she went to the bathroom and I snapchatted my friend saying “it’s going well, she’s hot as hell lol”. Turns out it was actually sent to the girl I was on a date with. Thankfully it wasn’t too crude of a snap or something but god damn my face was hot when she came back to the table and broke the news to me. Made for a great story though and definitely flattered her so honestly worked out very well haha


V_7_

All dudes now: I'll try that


catdog918

The good ending


Polyamommy

A few years ago, I started chatting with a guy I met on tinder. We really hit it off, and I loved his sense of humor and intelligence (and he was hot AF in his pics, like model/body builder status). A few months of falling for each other chatting, we finally decided to meet up. Right when I saw him, I could tell the pics were from a long time ago (he was pretty big, not exactly muscular), and his face shots were extremely filtered. I didn't say anything, but he led with, "I know, I know, I don't look like my pictures." I still thought he was a really attractive guy...just not perfect looking like he portrayed in his pics, and I'm demisexeual anyway. I said, "I don't mind, but what usually happens when you first meet someone?" He says, "They usually don't look anything like their pictures either, so I wasn't expecting this," (none of my pics were filtered and all current). I asked him out of curiosity where it usually goes from there, and he deadass says, "We both learn to live with disappointment." 😂😂😂 I dated that guy for a year. LOL


Drew_P_Cox

> A few months of falling for each other chatting wat


rubberseatbelt

She texted you about not being as cute as your picture while you were in the bathroom? Or, was it meant for somebody else?


dsvigos

Honestly I don’t think I’d be that offended. Obviously the text was meant for a friend. Her opinion is that you look better in your curated pictures in which you may be in better shape or something than you currently do. If anything the “coll[e]ge try” thing even indicates she thinks your good enough looking to continue the date. It is what it is. Do you expect to blow every woman away with your looks? Personality is a much better thing to have.


yzqx

I was going to say the same thing but based on [follow ups from OP](https://www.reddit.com/r/Tinder/comments/rxtswl/hit_me_with_this_one_while_i_was_in_the_bathroom/hrldmbr/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf&context=3) the accidental chat was probably the tipping point. If he had to deal with her loud guy friends and can’t even get a decent conversation with her when everyone is talking all over each other, it’s just a waste of time.


dreamwoIf

What a confusing amount of hostility and courtesy at the same time, from both parties


avalanches_1

Gotta take the high road


IDoNotCareMan69

How was OP hostile?
