"I can't make this stuff up fam."
Somewhere on the scale between "down bad" and "Elon Musk rageposting about Grimes dating Chelsea Manning" lies a crypto lonely heart whose enthusiasm for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) induced an L that he willingly posted.
Twitter user Feld4014 broadcast to his 28.5k followers a series of events that any woman who lives in a major city, dates men, and has used dating apps in the past six months has probably encountered.
According to Feld, he "matched with a woman" and subsequently "exchanged banter with said woman" — and really, who talks like this in 2022? It's not Reddit circa 2011, my guy — ultimately scheduling a date.
Per a screenshot, the woman said she believed the pair would be incompatible because she had "a feeling" that her would-be date would be unable to avoid talking about NFTs — and given that his profile photo features one of the many "Bored Apes" in the user's NFT collection, she may well have been right.
1) downloaded tinder
2) matched with a woman
3) exchanged banter with said woman
4) scheduled date for Monday night
5) Sunday night got this message saying she didn't think we'd be compatible because... (See screenshot)#NFTs

It Gets Worse
Though this exchange is indeed a god-tier example of crypto bros taking L's, it is absolutely not the worst example we've encountered in recent months. That distinction, almost without question, goes to the many people who have collectively lost tens of millions of dollars worth of crypto on the many NFT scams that keep cropping up in the burgeoning market, which is arguably a scam itself.
Make no mistake — the aforementioned Tinder exchange is absolutely, irrevocably embarrassing for the person who posted it. But at least he seems to have a sense of humor about it, which can't be said of many of his NFT-loving compatriots.
