Dating can be pretty hard, and apps like Tinder were created to make matching up with someone much easier. Of course, if the person you match with isn't exactly looking for the same thing as you, that can be a problem. And I'm not even talking about how some people want a serious relationship while other are just trying to hook up. As this tweet shows, people apparently use Tinder for things other than dating altogether.

A woman named Lyra posted a tweet showing one of her Tinder matches — a guy playing football in the picture, and a message from him asking her if she was looking to "play."

Given his picture, she assumed he meant play football, but he wrote back, "Read my bio."

So she did, and it turns out dude's not even looking to hook up at all. He just wants to play Words With Friends 2. (He made a point of that: 2, not 1.)

He wrote, "IM ONLY HERE TO PLAY WORDS WITH FRIENDS. If you're not gonna respond, don't match." He added that no one on Tinder would get his eggplant (dick). BUT they would get Chipotle if they won. So basically he's really desperate, but not for a date, for another game of the Scrabble-like Words With Friends. 2! Not 1!

Lyra didn't seem to mind much, posting the tweet and writing, "This is my favorite tinder experience ever."

The tweet got sort of big, and one woman replied that she was in a match of the game with the dude right then.

And so was another woman.

Wow, small world!

Everyone thought it was funny.

Is this guy maybe a little into Words With Friends? Just saying.
