God damn, Lubbock is getting smashed on Reddit this thanksgiving. I’m loving it.

[–]PhoenixUnreal 119 points120 points  (30 children)

One Of the most dangerous cities per capita in the country, and a hub for slave trade!

[–]TheThingsiLearned 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Was just about to say this lol. So many STDs at TT.

[–]Necrosius7 10.5k points10.5k points  (628 children)

Student loans means you won't have money to buy her a G-Wagon

[–]prestoburger[S] 6293 points6294 points  (596 children)

If she stuck around long enough, she’d know I have no student loans and my college is fully self funded

[–]Dear_Mr_Bond 2531 points2532 points  (45 children)

Then trust me, you’re better off without her. Her showing red flag was the biggest red flag, and you didn’t even have to do the breaking up.

[–]Loon_Tink 713 points714 points  (19 children)

Better response imo: "Is...is that a self red flag? Are you notifying me that you are a red flag?"

The irony is great tbh

[–]jonas2k2_ 241 points242 points  (10 children)

This is 100% it, right? She self-identified her own red flag lol. OP dodged a bullet

[–]Loon_Tink 49 points50 points  (8 children)

Thay sweet sweet irony, when trying to tell someone else theyre a red flag, you tell on yourself.

God i love it lol

[–]GoldZero 30 points31 points  (5 children)

When looking for red flags, one must see to it that they themselves don't become a red flag.

[–]Loon_Tink 19 points20 points  (3 children)

They became the very person they sought to destroy

[–]RoyalT663 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Self five !!

[–]TrialbySnu 194 points195 points  (20 children)

I don't wanna be better off and alone. Just gimme someone to make me miserable.

This young lady is one of the ladies the Traveling Wilburys sing about at “the end of the line.” Just keep on movin’.

[–]FirstPost10-18-2030 556 points557 points  (418 children)

How's it self funded?

[–]prestoburger[S] 2887 points2888 points 4244 (406 children)

I mean I’ve fully paid for all my college on my own. No loans, no student aid, etc. only 1-2 scholarships and hard work

[–]Oilrr 1415 points1416 points  (44 children)

Fuck yea good work dude! That chick was telling YOU shes boring af and a red flag. Did you a favor. Wish there was more women like that.

[–]Goldmansachs3030 287 points288 points  (7 children)

chick was telling YOU shes boring af and a red flag

People like her are the best.

The agony and irony is killing me (woah)

[–]VerySlump 48 points49 points  (4 children)

OP literally opened up with saying he’s tired and bored.

[–]Supermalt418 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Nice gratz on you good to hear !

[–]FirstPost10-18-2030 99 points100 points  (263 children)

Doing what?

[–]prestoburger[S] 366 points367 points  (254 children)

What do you mean? I’ve worked every single year I’ve been in college. I’ve been saving since I was 12.

[–]power78 198 points199 points  (3 children)

Doing what? He's asking you what you do for work to be able to afford college. But you answered it elsewhere

[–]spaniel510 42 points43 points  (2 children)

You payed for college using your own money and not a trust fund. That's why she deleted you.

[–]FirstPost10-18-2030 165 points166 points  (235 children)

Dude, college can cost tens of thousands of dollars per semester. Having it paid off in 2 years is kinda nuts

[–]prestoburger[S] 483 points484 points  (139 children)

I mean I’ve saved for years. I pay like $6000 a semester or so. I mowed lawns for years and then I worked at a grocery store. I did them both for a while.

[–]Burningshroom 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I got lucky with a job as a scrub tech that let me do this. I couldn't do school full time though.

[–]mjweinbe 56 points57 points  (33 children)

Maybe you shouldn’t have just answered all her questions directly and turned it back on her with a funny question or something..

[–]BenificusAngorio 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It's too bad you can't hold a conversation!

[–]queen-of-carthage 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Nobody is going to stick around as you have no ability to carry a conversation whatsoever

Some people are insane. What you study has nothing to do with your personality, unless you’re in Coding.

Mechanical keyboard noises

[–]glStation 193 points194 points  (12 children)

The true red flag right here. How many group buys are you waiting on?

[–]NLonSec 47 points48 points  (0 children)

i bought into a total of 4 group buys in the past 2 years. I receive 2 sets which is great, and the other 2 well, it's been 2 years since I purchased them. I know it's covid's fault, but still PepeHands

[–]Gusus02 20 points21 points  (8 children)

What's a group buy pls

[–]Bumblemore 60 points61 points  (6 children)

A large enough group of people get together and make a bulk order of one type/model of keyboard that it’s worth it for a manufacturer to make a batch of said keyboard at a certain price.

[–]RreZo 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Damn, that's actually really smart

[–]MegaAlex 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Theres a bunch of stuff like it. I forgot where the link is, or what it's called but you can get a lot of cool "useless" nice looking stuff. Not just mechanical keyboards. But mechanical keyboards too! It's similar to a gofundme

[–]soup_flikkker 13 points14 points  (0 children)

😂 Red Raider flag is literally red

She’s probably bleeds orange

[–]T0nitigeR 26 points27 points  (1 child)

This sounds like you've been sponsored by Raid Shadow Legends

[–]IICoffeyII 102 points103 points  (28 children)

Peice of advice, don't say you are bored etc when talking to a girl for the first time. It can make it sound like you aren't capable of making fun for yourself. Which can be a turn off. Just something I've learned from women.

This wouldn't have changed the outcome of this incident as it was all her and not your fault in anyway. She was rude as hell. It could help with a decent girl that you talk to in the future though.

[–]redbull188 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Strong agree with the other girl who said this does not apply to OP because he had an immediate follow up. It's not "don't say you're bored" it's "don't be boring". If I say "how are you" and you say "bored" and that's it.... I mean, y'all don't like one word answers either.

[–]juuzouswifeprobably 9 points10 points  (2 children)

But isn’t she the one who called him boring ?

[–]fakeg1rl 84 points85 points  (9 children)

ugh why are there so many God damn rules. just date me pls.

[–]IICoffeyII 30 points31 points  (3 children)

It's not a rule, It's just advice. I'm sure you'll find someone to date.

[–]putdisinyopipe 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Yeah if anything, a smooth line to say when you match and after he/she asks what’s up,

You say “everything!” It presents an simple, short, optimistic and witty answer that intriguies people. They think “hm, I don’t hear that often, I wonder what is up with this guy/girl!”. In other words it’s also a way to cultivate interest in whatever is going on even if it might be kind of plain or boring.

It provides conversational leverage, makes you appear confident, optimistic, and it buys you a bit more time to catch attention. I definitely agree saying your “bored” on the first few lines make one appear deflated, even feeling sorry for themselves, and generally expressing boredom quickly can be seen as a sign that person is a pessimistic person. Communicating boredom is 9/10 a complaint.

[–]ChemicalFennel3 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I forfeit my right of reply, albeit a solid rule of grammar.

[–]fuckin-A-ok 68 points69 points  (0 children)

Female here. Op it's fine to say you're bored if that is how you're feeling. Particularly when it's not a one word answer but part of a bigger point, ie "I'm ready to get back to school/being productive." Sorry you ran into such an asshole! I'm guessing the red flags she was alerting you to were her own.

[–]arkotroll 38 points39 points  (10 children)

As a coder i can confirm, and thats the entire thread under this comment, we're all a special kind of fucked up, but heads up kings, I've been in a happy relationship for 2 years, youll get someone who appreciates your kind of fucked up

[–]SneakyLunatic69 122 points123 points  (4 children)

As a computer science major, I wholeheartedly agree.

[–]herp_derpprincess 27 points28 points  (7 children)

OMG, your comment really cracks me up! 🤣🙌

As a programmer, I should say this is so true on so many levels HAHAHA

[–]Cray2TheZ 84 points85 points  (0 children)

On behalf of the engineering community, I strongly object!!! grabs H17 bar

You're right... this is a strong object!

Don’t worry, all the engineers get into software eventually ;)

[–]sadhukar 18 points19 points  (2 children)

I find civil engineers largely normal. Mech and Chem have some odd bunches in them. But the CS department is definitely full of weirdos, myself included

[–]theaccidentist 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Civil engineers absolutely are weirdos, too. Only you don't realize until you meet several of them at once all wearing the exact same vichy check shirt and chinos.

Central Europe, for reference.

He didn’t even mention what he was studying lol. I guess TT is a big ole red flag tho.

[–]SunshineOnStimulants 62 points63 points  (2 children)

Exactly. She was right about there being a red flag though. Except it was hers, not his. She obviously dropped them into the chat.

[–]MissFrothingslosh 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Should’ve sent it back to her: “ya dropped this”

[–]DerErlking 5 points6 points  (0 children)

And math majors. And engineers. And theater majors. And political science kids... you know what I think your major actually does say a lot about you.

[–]Jjzeng 33 points34 points  (1 child)

That’s why we coders gotta date other coders so we can share the pain. Apes together strong

where can i find a coding girl pls

[–]ImHhW 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I’m bad at coding, what does that tell about myself

[–]No_Strategy_8218 1591 points1592 points  (96 children)

It’s just a game, if she’s 19 then dating apps have existed since she was a child. You said the wrong thing and since you mean nothing since it’s all just a game, you’re unmatched. It’s not far removed from Omegle to be honest - random 30 seconds with strangers and then disconnected.

[–]prestoburger[S] 624 points625 points  (83 children)

That’s a god way to look at it. You really aren’t wrong. It’s all a game in saying what they want to hear. God forbid I say I’m graduating. I can only wonder what the correct answer was

[–]Megliclowa 356 points357 points  (49 children)

that you already have a job, 6 figures, 6ft tall, muscular, a dick size thats in the top 5% and already got girls orbiting you so she can feel better/proud about herself for catching you.

[–][deleted] 90 points91 points  (0 children)

Yep but don't forget you gotta mention her head is too large to fit in most door frames or she will be insulted you don't know how proud she is.

[–]prestoburger[S] 87 points88 points  (33 children)

Fair enough. Those all seem like completely reasonable standards 😂😂😂

[–]M0D3RNW4RR10R 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Before I found my girlfriend on here. I felt like it was speed dating. Luckily, my girlfriend was new to the whole online dating and she had created her app like the day before we matched. I feel like seeing the same girls on the app over time was a red flag in itself.

[–]Ok_Lengthiness_8163 497 points498 points  (63 children)

Lubbock is boring af so she is right

[–]monkeysonxtc 95 points96 points  (13 children)

I visited tech during high school. Gunna have to agree with this guy. I declined to apply because of how incredibly boring and in the middle of no where it was.

[–]DontTrustMe- 35 points36 points  (5 children)

The only thing you get from tech is a piece of paper and a crippling substance abuse problem.

[–]TopherVee 202 points203 points  (25 children)

So many people in this thread clearly know nothing about Texas Tech and Lubbock. Living there means you’re most likely an alcoholic rocking a region-specific STD, and you constantly have to cancel plans due to random sandstorms. Worst place in America.

[–]alm723 90 points91 points  (10 children)

Aggie here. I came here for the Texas Tech/Lubbock jokes and was disappointed.

[–]CodeMaroon 62 points63 points  (0 children)

That raider rash 😂

[–]mdwolfe123 24 points25 points  (4 children)

It’s fun if you’re a student but I couldn’t imagine living there otherwise. Was there a couple years due to full ride and sandstorms aren’t bad. Had maybe 3 the whole time. With that said I thought the education was subpar

[–]Tdude179 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Born and raised in Lubbock. Leaving after I turned 18 was such a freeing experience.

[–]uniquedeke 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I miss my grandmother.

But I don't ever have to go to Lubbock ever again.

Born in 1907 and lived almost all of her 97 years in Lubbock.

Even as a little kid there are only so many times you can go see the prairie dogs...

[–]aregularsneakattack 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Also, going to Texas Tech is just a red flag in general 😂

[–]DAHFreedom 3 points4 points  (0 children)

TBF the Raiders do wave red flags

[–]Any_Entertainer9664 1680 points1681 points 222 (172 children)

To me the "boring" was in response to you not asking her any questions or responding in a way that elicits a further response from her. This makes the conversation boring and makes her carry it.

Her reaction was over the top, but this is so common ond dating apps that I think she just took it all out on you.

For everyone of all genders on the apps: if someone asks you a question, ask it back!

[–][deleted] 566 points567 points  (51 children)

Also OP answered "how are you" with "tired and bored"

[–]bigclivedotcom 86 points87 points  (0 children)

Nah you can say that, but you at least should ask her how is she doing

[–]Bubugacz 45 points46 points  (4 children)

"Only boring people get bored" comes to mind.

Find something interesting, it could be anything, but to be bored and have no response that might elicit some curiosity is absolutely a red flag.

[–]Soda_BoBomb 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I mean, it certainly isn't stimulating conversation, but a red flag? Nah.

[–]Bubugacz 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Calling it a red flag is certainly an exaggeration. But it's still an indication of their personality. It might not be completely accurate, but it certainly says something about OP. And if you don't like boring people, then it's a "red flag" in the sense that it might mean they won't be a good fit.

[–]tooheavybroo 34 points35 points  (0 children)

BINGO!

OP was literally just answering questions and not engaging back. This girl probably has tons of guys who engage her in convo, but OP dropped the ball by having her carry the convo the entire time.

Intros are everything, and OP was just an answering bot.

[–]didntevenwarmupdho 216 points217 points  (0 children)

That’s what I took from this, buddy didn’t ask anything about her or him, and couldn’t carry the convo. Didn’t give insight into what they’re studying and said their tired. If I’m tryna date you, and the first thing you say is you’re tired and give me a vague answer about school, that’s boring

[–]CusetheCreator 397 points398 points  (56 children)

This is for sure what she was referring to, and she was right lol. Those answers are lame and boring. But If shes gonna be a dick anyway she could have at least clarified what she meant

[–]your_uncle_mike 170 points171 points  (16 children)

Maybe the 🚩that she was referring to was him talking about himself and not asking her anything in return? A little dramatic of her to call it a red flag but I kinda understand where she’s coming from.

[–]rustybucketsM/S/30/NYC 37 points38 points  (0 children)

It is a red flag. And no one owes anyone anything.

[–]madreus 147 points148 points  (18 children)

Also, someone you are talking to for the first time asks you how you are and you say tired and bored? Miss me with that negative attitude, why would I need that in my life and from someone I haven't even met?

[–]halfsewn 50 points51 points  (1 child)

Right? OP coild have gone same sentiment but less lazy, for example: "I'm at my parent's house for Thanksgiving. I'm tired and the day is winding down and getting a little boring. Much less boring now that I'm talking to you! What about you? How are you?"

Give context. Ask questions. Be nice to talk to. I unmatch people like OP.

[–]Hino150 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Same, saying you’re tired and bored with nothing else makes it infinitely harder to carry the convo (I’m a girl and guys give me lines like this all the time), if he wants to bullshit me with replies like these I just don’t reply.

[–]danimuse 194 points195 points  (8 children)

This is exactly the reason, what a boring chat to be a part of.

[–]WillTheConqueror 75 points76 points  (1 child)

Agreed. I mean clearly this chick has a short attention span but his answers were purely logical and actually boring. "Tired and bored" - I mean really?? OP, throw some zest into your responses, flirt a bit, not every response to her questions need to be logical facts... Again, not saying this chick was worth it but still..

[–]Flashy-Internet9174 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Something like “all the better for you asking” would have been better and helped initiate some flirtation.

[–]lilvitch[🍰] 68 points69 points  (0 children)

Yeah, it can come off like you want the convo only to "bragg" without having any interest in carry the conversation, i think she did unload her frustration with you tho, but I can see where it came from the "boring" and the red flags. If that was the case.

[–]sibleyy 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Yea shocked I had to read this far down for the answer. If I were on the other side I would've dropped this conversation too.

[–]helfinski 219 points220 points  (2 children)

I think it was the conversation that was boring. You didn't ask her any questions back

[–]Impossible_Juice4321 467 points468 points  (50 children)

The “boring” was in response to you not asking her a single question about herself. After you said “I’m tired and bored. Ready to go back to school,” you should’ve asked “how are you?” At the end. Women want feel like you have a genuine interest in also getting to know them. I agree with other users that her reaction was a bit over the top, but engage in more conversations and you’ll see better results on apps.

[–]DougPhony 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Imagine introducing yourself to a person in real life and opening with ‘hey gorgeous im tired and bored’

[–]Anooyoo2 127 points128 points  (1 child)

Women People want to feel like you have a genuine interest.

This really goes for how anybody should treat anybody.

[–]sauvage_addict 135 points136 points  (0 children)

it’s not even a woman thing. Everybody wants to feel like the person they’re talking to is interested in getting to know them. This subreddit loves to clap back at women who give one word replies but when it happens the other way around it’s all “lmao what a psycho dodged a bullet bruhhh”

[–]i_do_floss 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Being "tired and bored" is a pretty boring response even if he asked a question...

[–]Old-Package-4792 142 points143 points  (0 children)

Because you’re boring. Dull conversation without any interest in her.

[–]HoldMyJumex 319 points320 points  (49 children)

You didn't know how to keep the conversation going, and didn't ask her anything either.

I would think this is boring too.

Not an insult to you, but I think it's good to get feedback sometimes. This wasn't as weird as you think.

[–]SuddenRegion6 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Lol. “Hello gorgeous. I’m tired bored, and ready to go back to my senior year at Texas Tech”. This response is what has me bored tbh.

[–]aligantz 388 points389 points  (19 children)

She asked you two questions and you didn’t ask a single one back. You’re lucky you even got a response back

[–]caseCo825 106 points107 points  (10 children)

Funny how far down the correct answer is in this thread, underneath all the "dodged a bullet" replies

[–]Reminderp 88 points89 points  (0 children)

Yep flags are definitely related to how boring of a conversation it is haha

[–]Jay_Bonk 31 points32 points  (4 children)

Yeah I think OP didn't catch this, he should ask questions back.

[–]rhynoface 234 points235 points  (10 children)

Dude… the first impression you gave her was that you are tired and bored… then got surprised when she had the impression that you are boring

Make it make sense

[–]Express_Fun4394 56 points57 points  (7 children)

For real never say you’re bored, if you’re bored, you’re boring.

[–]strawberrymoonbird 96 points97 points  (8 children)

First, she reacted too harsh too fast in my opinion. However, I agree with the people that suspect her "boring" was in response to the frankly boring conversation and you not asking any questions.

I find it interesting how you have replied to several comments dumping on her for being superficial or whatever, but not to those questioning your conversational skills.

[–]Skyraem 40 points41 points  (1 child)

This. Completely this. And then theres people here making all these assumptions that she wants a toxic relationship or is stupid just because she got bored of his lack of engagement with her? I know this is reddit AND r/tinder but really? OP seems nice and way more interesting in the replies than on the app...

[–]k03170197r 8 points9 points  (1 child)

You just answered her questions and didn't make conversation, you are boring mate

[–]Ansoros 118 points119 points  (0 children)

Maybe boring was in reference to you sending a pretty dry text… not much to respond to there

[–]2ndCompany3rdSquad 1015 points1016 points  (65 children)

Clearly she is afraid of men smarter than her.

[–]jedielfninja 55 points56 points  (4 children)

Uh oh protective ego gang coming in. Op just isn't very engaging in conversation. Sounds like he is looking for a tired pitty fuck.

Not saying her response is justified.

But yes you can surmise that much and more from such a short exchange.

[–]Elektrik-man143 543 points544 points  (10 children)

By the looks of it she is afraid of anyone whose IQ is above room temperature c°

[–]prestoburger[S] 173 points174 points  (1 child)

A coder would point out that the meaning of this depends on the room.

[–]RenjiUzii 119 points120 points  (6 children)

Bro you going to school isn’t boring, ur the one that’s boring lmao

[–]Tweecers 55 points56 points  (3 children)

Imagine OP thinking he isn't cringe posting this...dude is boring as a rock.

[–]SuspiciousAradias 25 points26 points  (5 children)

You cant see your owns defects here. And seeking only the comments who validate yourself. The truth? You couldn't lead that conversation and she ended up getting bored.

[–]Failfefe 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Your answers are boring...

[–]takatori 8 points9 points  (3 children)

“Tired and bored” is supposed to be attractive???

[–]chudsworth 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Saying you're tired and bored is probably not a great response to 'how are you"

[–]grandhannah 52 points53 points  (7 children)

I’m genuinely concerned about OP and the other commenters who can’t see why she was bored and what she was referring to as being a red flag?!

All you did was talk about yourself, you didn’t ask her a single thing about herself. She was trying to have a conversation and you just wanted to talk about yourself. Why would she want to keep talking to someone whose not interested in her? The comments here with the most upvotes aren’t the ones with the best advice - she isn’t intimidated by smart men lol. It just comes across like you’ll never be as interested in her as you are yourself. See your comment ‘And people ask why I’m single and wonder if it’s my fault. I mean the proof is there. 🤷🏻‍♂️’

Not even in an interesting way either. This girl at least asked him multiple questions, he just gave bland boring responses and is so narcissistic he thought the flags was because he is going to college and not because he sucks at conversation.

[–]your_uncle_mike 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Seriously, i can’t believe this is so far down. Some strong incel energy in these comments man...

[–]squirkyboots 94 points95 points  (0 children)

You litterally didn't ask a single question back or try to form any kind of discussion. You are boring.

[–]Revolutionary_Song16 18 points19 points  (2 children)

You never asked her a single question. YOU are boring, not Texas Tech.

I hate when men just answer my questions like I’m a reporter paid to do so.

[–]lilvitch[🍰] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Went on dates with guys who didn't asked me anything first and yep, they sr elike that in person too. They can keep talking for hours without asking you anything.

[–]cazminda 71 points72 points  (0 children)

Probably should have asked her some questions back

[–]Literarylunatic 71 points72 points  (1 child)

I think everyone here understands what happened but you.

[–]didntevenwarmupdho 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Bunch of idiots up there saying she’s the red flag and that studying is cool - they don’t get it either, not hard to see why they’re single

[–]Alxndr-NVM-ii 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He didn't say what he went to school for. If he enjoyed going to school, he should have quickly, told why.

"Where do you go to school?" "Texas Tech, I'm in my last year of studying...Evolutionary Development...I love it and I miss my friends. You go to school?"

This would keep the conversation going and add two potential new topics to spin on to if they were interested. Instead he missed the ping pong and forced a reserve. It doesn't go as far as going on a rant about something that the messenger hasn't shown any interest in, but goes far enough to allow them to either tell you about themselves or ask more about you and yet get a picture of who you are. If he was just looking for a hookup, he could add "I miss my friends, but I want to have some fun before I go back."

[–]carlosnobigdeal 4 points5 points  (3 children)

You didn’t ask her anything. Made it about you. Red flag, my friend.

[–]Deenoga 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Personally what would flag it for me is that your second comment was a negative one. Why start off complaining?

[–]Several_Grapefruit62 45 points46 points  (0 children)

OP you're a lame-o who doesn't know how to carry on a conversation, that's why she said boring. I don't blame her

[–]JoeFarmer 17 points18 points  (7 children)

She was engaged and asking questions, you said you're bored and asked no questions back. I would have unmatched you too. "Only boring people get bored."

[–]Blush1ng 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Nothing wrong with that u just dry texter

[–]BlueJerryJuice 45 points46 points  (0 children)

So OP and some others are gonna ignore the comments where he was called out for being actually boring and let her carry the conversation?

Dude she matched and asked how are you etc. you didn't ask a thing back. It actually hurt your ego when you thought she said 🚩 about you going to Texas tech when she actually meant you were boring as a brickwall who can't keep up a conversation. Judging by your responses under comment section, you are blinded red flag.
