Very few Tinder stories are of the heartwarming, restore-your-faith-in-humanity sort.
In fact, most Tinder tales generally feature some of the worst specimens of (male) human available. Between the persistent comments asking for nudes, unwarranted aggression in the face of rejection, and the many instances of utterly bats—t and misogynistic ‘rules,’ ‘guidelines,’ and ‘tips,’ it’s a miracle so many thousands (of women) still engage with the app at all.
Enter 27-year-old Kirk, whose Tinder profile recently went viral for his misogynistic, racist, and utterly appalling “rules” for potential dates. Kirk came under fire when screenshots of his Tinder bio were posted to Twitter by Zoe (@zxox32) from Essex, England.
“I thought I’d give Tinder a go but honestly, it’s fully put me off dating,” she captioned the images, which have over the last five days garnered over 26,000 likes, 2,500 retweets, and nearly 4,000 comments from equally disgusted men and women across social media.

The first photo is a selfie Kirk apparently took in a public bathroom or locker room with his pants around his ankles.
The second is a screenshot of his bio:
“I have 3 rules.. Rule 1, I don’t want to be step dad so no kids unless u have just one, I want my OWN thanks.
“Rules 2, if you date black boys or think about it don’t even text me.
“Rule 3, I don’t want a time waster or someone who is a bum .. go make your own money u lazy f—s.”
He then added:
“I have my own 2 bed flat I bought.
“I body build.
“I have a German Shepherd.
“I eat a lot.
“I don’t take s—t.”
Before finishing with a cheeky “Good luck girls.”
Unsurprisingly, the racism and misogyny turned the vast majority of women off, despite Kirk’s offer of a 2-bedroom apartment and love of overeating.
Though mostly, Twitter strove to find him a belt with which to hold up his pants.
Seems like Zoe dodged a MAJOR bullet.
