Tinder co-founder suspended because of "sexual harassment"
He dated one of his subordinates, it didn't go well, and now she's suing for sexual harassment.

The guy:

The girl (far left on both photos):

Quote:The suit also describes the romantic relationship that Mateen pursued with Wolfe, despite the fact that he was her direct supervisor. When things went sour between them, issues within the organization became even more difficult. After a breakup in December of last year, the suit claims, Mateen told Wolfe to stay away from other men for a period of six months.

Sounds like the guy couldn't keep his game in check.

RE: Tinder co-founder suspended because of "sexual harassment"
Here is the actual complaint. Take a look at the exhibits.

My initial gut reaction (before reading the complaint) is that she made this up, this was overexaggerated, and so on. However once you get to the exhibits you realize it was this guy who just couldn't handle the situation.

It's sad really. I would love nothing more than, as a lawyer, to represent a man who has been wrongfully accused of things such as this. Unfortunately however this is not one of those cases. Instead it is just another example of the depressing reality of men in America these days.

That makes me laugh that a guy would say to a chick that he is no longer dating "I forbid you to date any other men for the next 6 months". As soon as she hears this, she will fire up her tinder app, and fuck the first 20 guys that swipe yes back to her.

This exemplifies the problem with corporate-type men. They think life itself is like business and they can issue non-compete clauses on dating.

This is so Beta it's laughable. Did he promise her a bonus for every extra day she stayed celibate?

That said, if you really want to watch hamsters go insane, do the opposite of what this guy did. If a girl insinuates she's seeing other guys after a break up, tell her it turns you on to think about her with other men. Heads assplode!

RE: Tinder co-founder suspended because of "sexual harassment"
And the guy is actually quite good-looking. Imagine what he could do if he had the mental strength to run game instead of pining away after her.

I've looked through the exhibits and I'm not sure if what he did merits a lawsuit, but he is certainly an idiot.

I got the wrong Whitney Wolfe! I updated the original post with the real girl.

I swear to god when I found the brunette I thought, "I'm surprised the girl isn't blonde." The guy just seems like the profile that would ruin his career for a blonde chick.

Total scarcity mentality. He's the founder of a super popular dating app and goes for the woman who he is directly supervising? This is all on him. Huge no no.

Perfect example of how so much of what's wrong is the fault of beta guys.

Also, why didn't use Tinder to find himself a new girl? Does he not believe in his product?

As a co-founder the guy could rig his profile to show up first on every search. Supreme fringe benefits

RE: Tinder co-founder suspended because of "sexual harassment"
Guys who live too long in the "tech" world or silicon valley end up with permanent scarcity mentality. The reason why is that the bay area is a sausage fest and there are loads of short haired feminists everywhere. So even the most outrageous millionaires like this guy who should be living it up are getting jerked around by women as they always have. Their emotional and spiritual growth as a man is stunted.

I seriously doubt SV CEOs have trouble getting women, especially companies that have worldwide success like Tinder.

I just read the texts too. He's toast. People get PC'd out of existence for far less these days. Sad for him, but stupid.

Even w/o game a guy should know this is not how to handle such a situation.

Your on top of the world and you cant just fuck outside of your company. Guy is an idiot plain and simple

I think this also highlites money fame etc dont give you frame or game. If your a sucker to begin with your just a sucker with more to lose when you strike it rich.

RE: Tinder co-founder suspended because of "sexual harassment"
I read the complaint. I believe maybe a third of it. Maybe.

This dude fucked up, but this a whiny, entitled, cunty whore. She is an eternal victim. I have no doubt she goaded this shit and liked most of it.

The one good thing about all of this petty shit is that pretty soon a sexual harassment charge will be the same as having a minor fender bender on your record.

Never underestimate the 'power' of an average looking white girl to a tech guy.

RE: Tinder co-founder suspended because of "sexual harassment"
This is Possessive Persian style game. It can work on more FOBby/insular Persian girls, I suppose, but definitely not on empowered white women. Not coincidentally, Persian dudes in LA have a terrible reputation among white girls here in LA. A friend of mine would always hide his Persian ancestry from girls for exactly that reason. (He did not have Possessive Persian game.)

There are lots of cool Persian dudes here too, but plenty enough like this dude to poison their reputation.

NB: I didn't read all the evidence, just the contents of this thread.
