Believe it or not, there was once a stigma when it came to online dating. People didn't want to admit that they were using a method of dating other than meeting in person. Seems rather quaint now, doesn't it?
And now, apps like Tinder, Bumble and Grindr having made online dating even more common. And as more people date people they haven't met, there's also been an increase in the number of weird things happening as a result. But this story is especially weird.
He explained it further, saying, "I told her earlier she had to go before bedtime cause I have to get up early for work. She asked me if she could stay for dinner and I said ok then she passed out and when I tried to wake her up to ask her to leave she said 'no.. I’m too tired.' I’m a pretty nice guy and I hate confrontation."
One commenter wondered if the woman might be homeless. This is when we find out that the woman does, in fact, have a car. However, the license plate is from another state. Is she on the run from the law?
So what was really going on? Was this turning into Risky Business, where the woman wouldn't leave and would eventually turn the house into a brothel? In this case, the guy wasn't going to wait to find out.
Once the police finally arrived, they reportedly laughed about the situation at first. However, as they came to really understand the situation, they started taking it seriously. Here's what they found.
MouthyMerc said, "Police are still here, she is out of my home but in the police car. Has outstanding warrants. They searched her persons and found a watch that I didn’t realize was missing, mail of mine and a few various other things. They are Searching her vehicle now." So it looks like he was right to call the police...although perhaps he should have called them much, much sooner.
The whole saga gripped Reddit for a couple of days. There was so much to keep track of that bubonis made this full summary of all of MouthyMerc's posts. But if you want to see those posts now, it's going to be difficult.
With his account deleted, that means we also don't have a follow-up on what happened to the woman. If she had outstanding warrants, what were they for? Is she in jail? Will he have to watch his back if she's set free? Unfortunately, we may never know the true answers.
