There are a whole lot of creeps on dating apps, but it’s rare that we get to see them expose themselves so obviously as in this group chat posted on the Instagram account @WhatIsnewYork. A guy dubbed “British Will” invited his own doom when he tried to meet up with over a dozen women he apparently matched with on Bumble at some point a year ago.
British Will must be slightly charming in pictures because they all gave them his number. He just doesn’t know how to use them.
The first message from Will reads, “Hey Stranger! We matched on Bumble last year but didn’t meet due to COVID. I just arrived back in the city and was wondering if you’re still single?! (British Will!)” Sounds like a hopeful message a guy might send to a gal, except Will sent it to 14 gals. All in the same chat.
“Ew did you just text fourteen girls at once,” one responds. “Goodbye sir.”
Luckily for Will, quite a few of the women found the whole situation amusing, immediately giving each other their Instagram handles and asking if everyone wants to be friends…except British Will, of course.
Someone comments “Haha! Massive fail on my side,” but because the numbers are blocked out it’s not entirely clear if it’s Will or some woman who knows it was a massive fail to give him their number.
A couple of the women had actually gone on a date with British Will, despite whatever COVID restrictions were supposedly keeping them apart. Things got a little rougher for the man at that point, as he was accused of “catfishing,” or using pictures that didn’t quite reflect the reality of his looks.
“Lol literally on a walk around soho during covid and had one margarita,” one woman writes. “Def weighed 30-50 more lbs than pics showed. That was the last.”
Another woman said she never met British Will, but she did get variations of the “Hey Stranger” message for ages afterwards. He clearly has a method.
The group chat eventually got changed by someone in it to “Will’s Angels,” which is pretty much perfect. This whole thing might be too mean to British Will, except he literally created the group chat himself.
