5. tindernightmares

Annnnnd back to the uglier side of dating. Similar in concept to @textsfromyourex but with people’s Tinder matches instead. The messages range from hilarious and cheesy to totally NSFW and yet somehow every single one is all too familiar.

6. wretchedfemale

For a feminist take on your dating woes, take a scroll these original memes created by a clever college student. It’s The Simpsons and Furbies like you’ve never seen them before. Perfect for the angsty and lovelorn liberal arts student in all of us.

7. 2psychobitches

If the username has you worried, don’t be. (It’s totally playful in a Crazy Ex-Girlfriend kind of way). This is 100% worth a follow if you find yourself dating a lot of losers, sleaze-bags, and liars.

While these Instagram accounts won’t cure the pain of a bad breakup or help you find your dream partner, they will hopefully make you feel less alone in your suffering. They’re also a perfect distraction for when your friends are too busy to listen to you complain about that hook-up buddy who won’t text back.
