In a now-viral post, a man said a Tinder match tried to recruit him for a multi-level marketing (MLM) company on their first date.

Posting in Reddit’s “Today I F**ked Up” (TIFU) forum under the username u/SlimVali, the man wrote: “TIFU by going on a date with a girl from Tinder who seemed way too good to be true and not seeing the red flags.” The post has garnered over 17,600 upvotes and hundreds of comments from Redditors who said they’ve suffered similar experiences.

MLMs and Dating Apps

As it turns out, many MLM recruiters use dating apps to expand their networks because “dating and social networking apps are populated with exactly the kinds of people [they] are looking for,” Bustle said.

“A classic MLM pitch is to engage you in a conversation, look for vulnerable areas, look for areas where you’re seeking, areas where you’re dissatisfied, and to link the MLM to solving that,” author Robert FitzPatrick told Bustle. “This is community. You want to be happier? This is all about being around positive-thinking people. What is a dating app but people searching for connection?”

Per Tinder’s terms and conditions, using the app to promote a business is a bannable offense. So, some recruiters or small business owners encourage their matches to follow them on other social media platforms, such as Instagram, and talk shop there, Bustle reported.

‘Investment Girlboss Vibe’

In his post, u/SlimVali said he talked to his date on Tinder and Instagram for a week prior to going out.

“She was gorgeous and she seemed very fun and outgoing but she did have an investment girlboss vibe to her,” he wrote.

The two met up and according to u/SlimVali, the first ten minutes of the date were “great.” But when he asked his date if she’d like some coffee—”after all [they were] at a coffee shop on a coffee date,” he said—the woman declined.

“[My date] tells me to go and get one for myself if I want…[so] I go and get my coffee and when I come back, there’s another girl at our table,” he recalled.

The second woman, as it turned out, was u/SlimVali’s date’s business partner.

“[She] starts asking me questions about my job, my studies and asks me If I would listen to their business plan so that I could make more money each month,” he said. “So she takes out a notepad and starts explaining [to] me their business model and how much money I would make If I would find three other persons who would find three other people themselves, etc.”

After listening to the pitch, u/SlimVali looked at his date and said: “So this is like a pyramid scheme right? This ain’t no date?”

His Tinder match assured him that they were on a date but said he “seemed like a cool person to become [their] partner,” adding that their business “[wasn’t] a pyramid scheme”—it was an MLM company.

“I told them I had to leave to go to the vet with my dog. They didn’t seem happy that I wasn’t interested in their MLM,” he concluded. “I laughed so much on the way home that I was crying.”

Redditors React

Redditors loved u/SlimVali’s story and as previously mentioned, many found it relatable.

“I’m not the only one this has happened to! Thank you, internet,” u/teucer12 said.

“This happened to me but with Bumble BFF. I was just looking for girlfriends,” u/nymaamyn responded.

u/BWinCan wrote: “I’ve heard so many stories about people that were tricked into dates, to hear an MLM speech. Good luck next time.”

“Something like that happened to me but with a dude. He seemed so interested to know about me and my kids, just to then pull out his ‘business,’ and told me as a single mother, this was a great opportunity for me. I got so angry and cut him off immediately,” u/SnooAvocados9343 added.

Newsweek has reached out to u/SlimVali for comment.
