A woman from Colorado was dumbfounded to learn she may be in a flavor-of-the-month situation when she made an eye-opening discovery in the bathroom of the guy she was dating.
She didn't even have to do a lot of digging, as she found many toiletries in full view that could belong to her Tinder date's girlfriend.
TikTok user @maricela_rae, a 21-year-old, posted the clip of her findings set to the theme song for Mission Impossible.
“It honestly just kept getting worse," she said in the caption.
it honestly just kept getting worse… #cheater #tinder #fyp #funny #caught #guys #umyeah
At the start of the clip, she explained her protocol of checking to see if a potential date is worth the emotional investment.
The overlaid text read, “So, I hung out with this guy and I always check their bathroom to see if they have a [girlfriend]…”.
Among her findings were some feminine hygiene products, women’s hair color developer, Herbal Essence hairspray, and two toothbrushes.
Halfway through her covert investigation, she turned on the water faucet "so he couldn't hear me snooping."
"Bro it gets worse," she told her friend for whom the video was intended.
She pulled back the shower curtain to reveal two loofas perched on the corner of the bathtub. One was pink.
Appalled TikTokers gave their assessments in the comments.
Some TikTokers suggested she also leave a clue for the guy's "roommate."
And another user had an urgent directive.
And run she did.
In a follow-up "storytime update" video, she explained she met the guy on Tinder and assumed he was single given his presence on the dating app.
After going out to dinner together, she wound up at his place and used his bathroom. She initially had no intention of taking her phone with her to record anything.
But she said she always checks as "a safety precaution" because she knows the bathroom and the bedroom is where she can find hints a guy could be lying about his dating status.
When she saw all the indications pointing to him being taken, she retrieved her phone and went back to the restroom to record the evidence to show her best friend.
"If guys have anything, it's the audacity, like I can't even fathom," she said.
She later told her friend, "this always happens to me. I have the absolute worst luck with guys. My love life is a f'cking joke at this point."
Reply to @maricela_rae UPDATE!!!!
The TikToker said she left the guy's place, got back in her car, and immediately blocked him on Tinder and on Snapchat.
She revealed she left a scrunchie and an extra hairpin that she had and a lip gloss and hid the items "in places I don't wanna mention because I don't want guys to get an idea of where to look" in case guys brought another girl, who was also under the impression he was single, back to his place.
She ended the video with the following suggestion:
"Just check guys' bathrooms in case you go to his house."
