A New York City woman decided to lure dozens of men to Union Square only to find out they were part of some sort of dating game.
The woman, identified as Natasha Aponte, used the dating app Tinder to convince the men to meet her for what they thought was a one-on-one rendezvous in Manhattan’s Union Square. But, that wasn’t the case.
One of the guys, named Spencer, said his interaction with Natasha began with her asking him out to drinks. After flaking out the first time, Spencer said Natasha messaged him a month or so later and invited him to see her friend who was “DJing near Union square”.
Spencer said he arrived to a stage, their intended meeting point, where dozens of other men were also gathered. To Spencer’s shock, the woman he was intending to meet soon stepped onto the stage. “She says ‘I’ve invited you all here for a chance to go on a date with me.’ And proceeds to give a Hunger Games speech about what its gonna take to date her.”
Another guy said, “She started calling the different characteristics she doesn’t like. ‘If you’re Puerto Rican and support Trump leave!’ ‘If you have a long beard leave.’ Then she did a competition. The gist of it was she wanted to do Live Tinder. Folks were pretty mad.”
The competition involved men racing each other and doing pushups in a bid to prove their worth. No word on who won, but to her credit, a bunch of guys stuck around to compete.
The woman is taking a bunch of criticism online, but she’s also getting a bunch of praise.
