  • You're finally free for the day, and you're looking forward to hanging out with your special

  • someone.

  • You need to do some shopping, so maybe a mall date would be a good idea.

  • You can share dinner in the food court and maybe catch a movie.

  • You whip out your phone and send a quick text

  • Hey - wanna meet at the malp?”

  • Wait, why did autocorrect do that?

  • Malp isn't even a word!

  • Well, that's embarrassing, but at least you're not these people - betrayed by either

  • their phone's autocorrect or their own poor judgement.

  • These are the thirty funniest dating text fails of all time.

  • #30 - Rip Van Winkle's Date

  • Sure, we've all had that message where you're just too busy to respond, and the next thing

  • you know, you're awkwardly trying to jump back in after a week.

  • But two years?

  • Unless they were in a coma, or off on a NASA mission, there's probably not going to be

  • a love connection here.

  • And if there is, the second date will probably be in 2025.

  • #29 - One Compliment Deserves Another?

  • They say if you want something, you should just shoot your shot and see what happens?

  • Well, this guy was pretty confident.

  • But...I don't think the object of his affection was quite feeling it.

  • Maybe next time, he should stick with a “hey”, and he might get back a less soul-crushing

  • response.

  • #28 - I Think We're Alone Now

  • Hey, there's nothing wrong with being persistent!

  • If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

  • But around the third time you don't get a response, it may be time to move on and

  • try some other lucky lady.

  • This guy is probably the type who has long and involved conversations with walls at parties.

  • #27 - Meet the Parents

  • Ah, meeting the parents.

  • It's a rite of passage for anyone in a new relationship.

  • The mom serves cookies while asking you all sorts of questions, and the dad tries to intimidate

  • you like only dads can.

  • But you're probably hoping to have that meeting after a while.

  • Something tells me this meeting with dad is going to be a lot less enjoyable.

  • #26 - 32's a Crowd

  • Hey, we get it - dating is hard.

  • Dad always said there's plenty of fish in the sea, but to catch them you've got to

  • have a big net.

  • But if you're going to shoot your shot with a lot of girls...you should probably make

  • sure they all don't talk to each other.

  • This guy should probably start working on thirty-two apology messages.

  • Maybe he could save time with a group chat.

  • #25 - Look on the Bright Side

  • This guy probably doesn't have two women over at the same time too often, and he may

  • have gotten a little too ambitious.

  • After all, it's like the old folk tale goes - a bird in the hand is better than two in

  • the bush.

  • Well, he's not going to have much luck tonight, but at least he's focusing on the positive

  • - he got some free chicken strips out of the deal.

  • What a catch.

  • #24 - Message Not Delivered

  • A baby is big news, and this guy obviously isn't ready to deal with it.

  • Trying to fool his girlfriend with a text pretending his phone has been deactivated...not

  • the most honest of techniques, but points for creativity.

  • But he may want to invest in a better spell check for his phone.

  • Let's see him try to pull this scam on the family court judge next.

  • #23 - The Last Date

  • Autocorrect is a fickle mistress.

  • This guy just wanted to be a good date and let his significant other know that he can't

  • wait to see them again.

  • But his phone has other plans, and now his date probably thinks he might be Hannibal

  • Lecter in disguise.

  • Unless, of course, it was a freudian slip, and then they both have bigger problems than

  • autocorrect.

  • #22 - Missed Connection

  • There's no better way to make a connection than to talk about your common interests.

  • Sure, one of these people is into music, and the other is more into candy.

  • At least he's polite about it?

  • Or not.

  • It might be time to move on before the conversation turns to Ice Cube and he thinks it's about

  • the best soda.

  • #21 - Jumping to Conclusions

  • Waiting for a date can be nerve-wracking - especially when they show up late.

  • Just be careful that when they finally show up - they're actually the person you're

  • looking for.

  • Otherwise, it could be an awkward situation.

  • But don't feel too bad - I'm pretty sure John is in for a worse date night than Heather.

  • #20 - Take the Hint

  • Some couples have very different ideas of what makes a good lazy morning.

  • Cole is looking to get up close and personal with his date, but his date is much more interested

  • in getting up close and personal with a bowl of cereal.

  • Sorry, Cole.

  • Do you have snap, crackle, and pop?

  • Or hearts, stars, and horseshoes, clovers and blue moons?

  • I don't think so.

  • Might want to work on upping that game instead of trying the same bit one more time.

  • #19 - Trying Is Half the Battle - But Not All of It

  • We all know the agony of having a crush.

  • Sometimes there's just no way to find out the truth without asking - and sometimes a

  • mistake on your phone does that work for you.

  • Well, at least it can't get more embarrassing, right?

  • Wrong.

  • Guess Chris wasn't Mr. Right after all.

  • And we were rooting for you, Ellie.

  • Better luck next time.

  • #18 - Sweeter the Second Time Around?

  • When a lonely night comes around, your thoughts might drift back towards an ex you miss.

  • It can be tempting to reach out by text.

  • Just be careful - you might get the answer to your question in a way you don't want.

  • It might be a better use of time to just sign up for a new account on a dating profile next

  • time.

  • #17 - Showing Support

  • Dating isn't always sunshine and roses, and sometimes your partner will be having

  • a hard time.

  • A good significant other would probably show their support and ask them if they need anything.

  • But this Prince Charming is a little more concerned with opinions on a popular TV show.

  • I wouldn't count on any Netflix and Chill any time soon.

  • #16 - Failure to Commit

  • There are few bigger decisions than getting married, and when you're about to propose,

  • it's natural to think about the ones that could have been.

  • But if you do text an ex to tell them the good news, you probably shouldn't try to

  • get them to do a pre-engagement hookup.

  • I don't think you missed out on a great one, Nicole.

  • #15 - Saved by Autocorrect?

  • Jason's phone betrayed him!

  • He was trying to be flirty, and instead it sent a breakup message.

  • Should be easy to explain...except Jenna might have other plans.

  • Looks like there was trouble in paradise all along.

  • Maybe the phone knew a little more than you did, Jason.

  • Maybe let it do the talking for your next relationship.

  • #14 - Ooh La La

  • They say the French are the best lovers, and this guy's phone definitely had France on

  • its mind when he decided to engage in some light sexting.

  • But his partner was probably thinking more of French kissing than French bread.

  • Well, maybe that'll put them both in the mood for a romantic dinner out instead?

  • #13 - Second Date Unlikely

  • Sometimes people just don't click on a first date.

  • Maybe she wants to eat dinner...and he wants to wander around the neighborhood randomly.

  • The first date probably isn't the best time to try to save on food costs.

  • Because the only thing worse than making a dating text fail...is becoming the subject

  • of a dating fail text.

  • #12 - We've Been Here Before

  • It's not always easy to find a date!

  • That's why a lot of people rely on their friends to fix them up with people.

  • But after a while, if your friend sends you one dud after another, it becomes easy to

  • write them off right away.

  • Is this guy a weirdo?

  • No way of knowing, but Kim isn't taking that chance.

  • Don't worry, random guy - there's plenty of weirdos out there for you.

  • #11 - Sensitive Much?

  • Hey, fellas, if a girl opens up to you, it probably means she trusts you.

  • And there's few things more personal than opening up about mental health.

  • So calling someoneCrazy crazymight not be the best way to show your support.

  • But I think the heart eyes are probably the most concerning part here.

  • Apparently this guy has a type.

  • #10 - When May Meets December

  • Age differences aren't always a deal-breaker in relationships!

  • Just ask some of Hollywood's most popular celebrities and - oh, they just got divorced.

  • But when flirting with someone older than you, they might be a little worried that you're

  • not mature enough to date them.

  • One way NOT to dispel those concerns?

  • Call them a MILF five seconds after meeting them.

  • Might want to try your luck with a fellow college student next time.

  • #9 - One Bad Pun Deserves Another

  • There's no better way to break the ice than with a joke, right?

  • But if this guy was thinking of romance, maybe bringing up thoughts of parking tickets wasn't

  • the best idea.

  • I don't think he hit his mark, but hey - at least the object of his attention managed

  • to get some frustration about those student loans out.

  • If viral clicks for responding to cringe-worthy texts could be monetized, maybe she'd pay

  • them off a little sooner.

  • #8 - Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

  • Being a redhead can be lonely.

  • Not only aren't there that many left, but good luck finding a date activity that doesn't

  • involve being in the sun too much.

  • So this date-hunter was pretty excited to find a fellow ginger.

  • But after one little case of mistaken identity, all that interest went out the window - leaving

  • a very confused person in its wake.

  • Maybe someone should create the websiteOnlyGingers”?

  • #7 - Not Your Pal Joey

  • Autocorrect has been the bane of many a relationship, but there are standard funny blunders - and

  • then there's calling your significant other by the wrong name.

  • Let's just hope there's no actual Joey in their friend circle, or he's going to

  • be having a very awkward and confusing day when word of this texting fail gets around.

  • #6 - Not That There's Anything Wrong With That!

  • This one likely has some people pretty confused.

  • Exactly how many beers does it take to turn someone into a lesbian?

  • Do the different beer companies have warning labels?

  • Is there a difference between regular beer and light beer?

  • Depending on who got this text, they may decide to swear off beer for a while - or go right

  • for that kegstand.

  • #5 - Woof Woof

  • Is there any better icebreaker than showing your date pictures of your pets?

  • Well, that's not one pet you should offer to show on a first date!

  • Let's hope he has a pretty cute dog to make up for the awkwardness - and that Loryn's

  • phone doesn't betray him again when he tries to show off his cat or goldfish.

  • #4 - Just a Little Clingy

  • They say if you know what you want out of life, just go for it.

  • But Nathan here might have taken that just a little too literally.

  • If you match with someone, maybe open with a “Hey”, or even “I really like your

  • profile picture”.

  • But if you're already picking out wedding drapes before the first text is even spent,

  • don't be surprised if you're sitting onreadfor a long time.

  • #3 - There's Someone For Everyone

  • Hey, it turns out that not every texting fail actually turns out to be a texting fail!

  • Looks like these two crazy kids have been through this cycle more than once.

  • “I'm breaking up with you.”

  • No, I'm breaking up with you.”.

  • And yet, they're going to be together at the end of the day.

  • I'm sure a lot of the other texters on this list are hoping for a similar happy ending.

  • Good luck finding your people out there.

  • #2 - Hello Again

  • We've all had that crazy party where you really can't remember much of what happened

  • the last night.

  • And you might wind up texting someone to piece together the missing bits of that wild night.

  • But you're probably not expecting to find your texting partner right next to you after

  • that.

  • Well, maybe texting is less awkward than a face-to-face conversation anyway.

  • But no one's phone has dug a hole quite as deep as this last guy's did for him.

  • #1.

  • Fat Chance

  • Long distance relationships are hard, and sometimes texting back and forth is all you

  • have.

  • And a saucy picture or two can make the heart grow fonder...until the autocorrect strikes

  • back.

  • And it doesn't get much worse than this one.

  • Not only is this guy probably not getting any more pictures any time soon, but he may

  • want to consider getting a ticket to some remote region in the mountains.

  • Preferably with no cell phone service.
