'Better off on Tinder': Internet divided over cringey Halloween note by dad looking for 'hot single mom’
'Didn't see this last night, could have got a new dad,' wrote a woman
The Halloween month might have been over but not the spooky or cringey posts on social media. And creepin’ it real is the latest image of a note by an unidentified man who is looking for love. While many believed it was cringe-worthy, others acknowledged it by saying, "Hot single mum here."
The picture, which has been appearing every Halloween on the feeds for years, shows a note to kids that read, "Don't care how much candy you take, but if you have a hot, single mom leave her number, love your future dad." The note was shared with a bowl of candies consisting of Starburst minis and tiny packets of LifeSavers with one saying, "You aren't winning over any step kids with candy like that."
As per DailyMail, one woman from New Zealand said about the photo, which is assumed to have originated in the US, "Not with that lolly selection." While another wrote, "You might as well be handing out raisins and precut apple slices with that selection." One more individual commented by saying, "With lollies like that I am sure my kid didn't even read the note properly, she would have just skipped to the next house."
On the other hand, the demands were raised. One woman wrote, "'If you are trying to be a kid's future dad maybe break out the king size or at least Reese’s." "This wouldn't work, my kids would clear you out of lollies and bail, better off on Tinder," commented another woman. "The Damn, I should have sent my kids out," said a woman. Tagging a friend, an individual wrote, "Damn we needed this one I would have left your number permission or not." One of many jokingly said, "Didn't see this last night, could have got a new dad." While many tagged the lines "old and tired." One man pointed out, "We have been writing notes like that in the US for years, boring," while another man commented by saying, "I would have better treats though, no kids with bad taste will be future kids of mine."
The origins of the picture are uncertain. However, every year it reappears with people sharing their take on it. Last year on Reddit, a person wrote, "Welcome to the future. Where asking for someone's number in a clearly joking fashion is viewed as gross and creepy af."
