Tinder can be a fun way to get a date, but chatting with strangers on the app can also show you who you would never want to date — ever.

Tinder Nightmares” is a popular Instagram account that collects the most hilariously awful attempts at flirting on the dating app. From corny pickup lines to tantrums people throw when they get ignored, this account, which has 1.7 million followers, is a good reminder of how ridiculous people can be when looking for “love.”

The account was started by Elan Gale, the “Bachelor” producer who also runs the “Texts from your ex” Instagram. While we don’t know for sure that all of these are real, they definitely capture something about the silly and depressing landscape of modern dating.
