Dozens of men arrived at Union Square in New York City this past weekend in order to go on a Tinder date with a girl named Natasha.
However, their plans quickly took a turn when Natasha herself stood up on stage and announced that she wanted all the men to participate in a live Tinder competition.
Nicholas, one of Natasha’s Tinder matches, told Gothamist that while most men chose not to participate, there were some who followed her demands and even subjected themselves to, “a live swipe line.”
According to a Twitter thread created by user @bvdhai, Natasha tricked all the men into meeting her at Union Square. She set up a stage and soundsystem, and revealed she wanted her suitors to participate in a live Tinder Date competition.
She gets the mic and is like thanks for coming out I bet you’re all wondering what this is about and I’m like yeah what the f**k is this about.
However, despite being completely played by Natasha some of the men chose to stay and actually participate. One of the duped dates, Nicholas, told Gothamist that Natasha had the men do push ups and run.
“She did a live swipe line, right and left,” Nicholas told Gothamist.
At that point I am genuinely amazed at the fallopian fortitude this girl possesses. This is top 10 greatest finesse of all time. Dudes actually stayed and played.

While a stunt like this doesn’t make for a great first impression, some gave Natasha props for pulling such a bold move.
