Alita Brydin of Melbourne, Australia, was recently the victim of a failed Tinder date. After a news source picked up her story, she went viral in a totally unexpected way.


Alita's failed dating story is not unlike many of the stories we have heard before or even experienced ourselves. She matched with a guy on Tinder who she was convinced was the man of her dreams. Since he lived a few hours away, he and Alita began a long-distance romance.

They bonded over movies and food in a way that made Alita believe he was in it for the long haul.

The messages we exchanged were personal, intimate, yet so mundane. My phone was filled with pictures of his cooking—he took me on the step by step journey of making pasta—selecting the ingredients, making the dough, working the half-falling-apart pasta maker. He took pride in his cooking—and I saw it as a sign that he was a man ready to make a home.

Finally, her man was going to be in town and the moment had arrived to meet face to face.

The day finally came. I saw him confidently approaching me, striding past the Asian grocer, the dingy Chinese takeout. Without saying a word he laid his lips on me, laid his palm on my lower back and kissed me. It was happening. Everything was coming together.

Giphy

It seemed as though Alita's fairy tale was finally coming true.

But the next morning, she woke up to a text message that said:

Stay away from my boyfriend.

Mr. Right was actually Mr. Wrong. He had allegedly met his real girlfriend after he and Alita matched on Tinder. The girlfriend, however, claimed the relationship was serious enough that they had met each other's parents, made plans to move in together, and even bought a ring. Alita decided this woman's story was enough to cut off Mr. Wrong completely.

But it wasn't her tale that caught the internet's attention.

When Daily Mirror picked up her story, they cleverly titled it, "Woman's perfect Tinder date with 'The One' shattered by five simple words."

The mystery of the five simple words took Twitter by storm. Now, Alita's relatively typical Tinder tale has gained attention across the globe because people are guessing what those five words could possibly be.

The results are hilarious.

Several people thought the deal-breaking words referred to his...manhood.



Others felt his downfall was surely more technical.



And, of course, others were convinced it was political.




And would a meme be complete without a proper 2000s reference?

Better luck next time, Alita.

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

"What is the worst way you've been woken up?"

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
