A woman has shared her bizarre Tinder experience after her date’s “dead” ex-girlfriend turned up to the same restaurant.
Hannah, 20, claims she had matched with the man before the pandemic and had been chatting for weeks before deciding to meet up.
The pair had arranged to meet at a restaurant in Lancashire and had been getting along until things took a weird turn.
Speaking to Lancs Live, Hannah said the man began sharing the heartbreak he endured after losing his ex-partner to cancer, even showing her photos.
“He was talking about his recently deceased partner who’d died from cancer and how he was struggling post-death,” she said.
“Sympathy was given because, well, that’s a horrible thing to go through.
“All was going well, until he looks up, goes white and bolts to the loos.”
Bewildered by the sudden disappearance of her date, Hannah looked around the room to see if something had happened.
She claims that as she turned around she saw someone who looked ‘eerily’ like the ‘dead’ woman in the pictures her Tinder date had shown her moments earlier.
“Turns out the dead partner was not so dead. In fact, the girl had two children with him and thought he had been working overtime to support them,” Hannah said.
Hannah said she was “shocked” as she spoke to the stunned ex-partner who told her she could have been the sixth girl he had told the tale to.
“He thought it wasn’t such a big deal to fake a dead partner for a date,” she said.

“I thought I was hallucinating a dead woman at first, then she came over, asked me if I was on a date with him and I just told her what he had told me about her being dead.”
Hannah left money on the table to pay her part of the bill and walked out.
“I heard her screaming as I left,” she added.
Hannah says she hasn’t been on a date since.
