We Feel Better About Our Own Love Lives After Reading These Petty Rejections

Pat Benatar was right when she said, “Love is a battlefield.” While everyone has their individual preference for a potential lover, some people take their requirements to the extreme and reject people for the most frivolous reasons.

From being short to unattractive, having an Android, or not knowing basic geography, being rejected hurts. So just be glad you’re not any of these people.

No Nerds For Me

You’d think that graduating from a tech university would be an impressive feat, but not if you’re this woman here who was unimpressed by this brainiac of a man.

She likes her men dumber and not saddled with crippling student debt.

Aging Uteruses

Are you a woman who’s 27 years old or older? Well, did you know that your uterus is an aging ticking time bomb?

Because Daniel thinks that all women older than 26 are doomed to a non-functioning uterus and are incapable of being loved by any man.

Princess Olivia

Olivia here has men doting on her like she’s a Disney princess, so she can’t waste her time on men who don’t immediately gush over her beauty and throw themselves at her.

Claims she does not base her self-worth on her physical appearance—immediately says she’s prettier than “many women.”

California Is Part Of Los Angeles

I get it, the world is a big place and geography is hard. But surely you can’t be stupid enough to think that California is part of Los Angeles and not the other way around.

His “Oh my God” reaction is appropriate, and much like coastal Southern California after a giant earthquake, the only place their love match is going is straight off a cliff.

Corgis Versus Cats

Whether cats or dogs, it’s no secret that people love their pets. This woman was on Tinder and made her love of corgis known in her bio, but this would-be suitor should have first done his homework before messaging her.

So Seth not only doesn’t have a corgi, but he also doesn’t have a girlfriend.

Read Me Like A Book

Have you ever been rejected for being too friendly and “easy to read”? Because this poor guy has and he still makes sense of this bizarre and hypocritical rejection.

When it comes to men, she is looking for something challenging such as a textbook on organic chemistry, and sadly, he is but a children’s picture book.

Good Boy

Marie here didn’t even have to match with a single guy to reject them. With one caveat in her Tinder profile, Marie just rejected a whole bunch of guys in one tiny swoop.

Cheer up, shorter guys. You might not be the height of a Calvin Klein model, but at least you can buy your clothes at Baby Gap. And isn’t saving money the true win here?

Travis The Truck

Why people set their profile pictures as their cars or trucks is one of those life mysteries that continues to baffle me. But this Tinder user didn’t want to “find new roads” with Travis and instead wanted to have a little bit of fun with this Transformer and his choice in profile picture.

But for Travis the truck, maybe he’ll fall in love with a Mercedes.

Bios Are For Losers

From describing what a person wants in a relationship to sharing their personal interests, you can tell a lot about someone from their Tinder bio.

But oh no, not this woman. While she has a bio of her own, she is too good to read the bios of people she matches with. I wonder if that disclaimer is in her own bio?

Apples To Androids

Much like people love their cars and pets, people are also enamored with their cell phones. While Nokia phones will outlive the universe itself, the greatest battle is Apple versus Android.

An apple a day might keep the doctor away, but apparently an Android a day will only keep potential lovers away.

Lefties Are The Incarnation Of The Devil

Tinder nowadays is full of people who’ve been rejected because of certain physical attributes, such as height or weight. But have you ever been rejected because of your dominant hand (you know, a physical attribute you most certainly have zero control over)?

Remember, Ned Flanders taught us that it’s cool to be left-handed!

“It Was Over Before It Ever Began.”

When you get a notification that you’ve matched with someone, it can be a pretty exhilarating feeling. Maybe you daydream about the kinds of conversations you’ll have together, or what your first date will be like.

But for this Tinder user, their chances at love were dead on arrival.

Finding Love In The Workplace

Now, this is perhaps one of the few rejections that actually make sense. Brenda here ended up matching with her manager of all people, but he was a bit slow to notice.

But perhaps she shouldn’t feel too bad—I swiped through Tinder once and accidentally came across my own brother. Several years later and I’m still traumatized by it.

To The Moon And Back

Unless they’re friends with Jeff Bezos or Elon Musk, I think their travel plans need to be a little more down to Earth.

I personally appreciate a good astronomy pun, but I think it goes without saying that she probably didn’t message Neil Armstrong back.

Cuts Like A Knife

When people match with someone and use a one-liner—whether funny, clever, or complimentary—there’s a lot riding on it. After all, first impressions are key.

But for this guy, he attempted to break the ice with Simone with a compliment, but the only thing that got broken was his ego.

What Could Have Been

Some people do find true love on Tinder, and a Reddit user shared this wedding photo and reminisced that two years ago, he began his crazy journey on Tinder and after a year of swiping, matched with the woman of his dreams. But after five messages, she ghosted him.

“This is a photo of how I had imagined our wedding day would be.” Yikes.
