    I swiped left in panic 😩😩😩 so I have no proof. What if he quickly deletes the app after our conversation?
    Dont mention anything unless he does, he should be ashamed of himself.

    I think if your dad, a married man, is going on Tinder to try and hook up with other females, some maybe [he hopes!] as young as 19 then I think your mother, as his wife, has a right to know exactly the kind of man she is married to.

    Yikes! How awkward

    If he found you on Tinder, he's probably worried about the possibility that you will find him too.

    I think that you should confront him and talk to him about the fact that he is married yet has a tinder account. If he refuses to discuss the issue or inform your mother then you should inform her. Its possible that they are both unhappy in their relationship or your father may admit to making a mistake and move on.I hope for the best and happiest mutual outcome.Good luckx

    I was very close to just letting this slide and not bringing it up, pretending I'd never seen this but seeing what you guys have written here I'm doubting that, and thinking about this in my mums perspective.
    I think I'm going to casually bring it up to my dad and ask him why he has a tinder acocunt. The problem is my mum is also downstairs right now

    Why do I get the feeling that this isn't really.........true? I am a sceptical person....but I somehow feel this is a made up story......

    This potentially is the makings of a divorce. Good luck OP

    If you're over 18, I suggest forgetting the consequences you'll face in order to help your mum because your dad may be cheating. I hate cheaters.

    Alternatively, wait for your dad to say something. Make a fake profile if he doesn't. Get proof then ask your dad what he was doing because s***'s gonna get real and life is going to hit you like a tone of brick phones.

    Or literally don't say anything and hope that your parent's marriage resolves itself. It's too much pressure for a child to have to fix a marriage.

    Convince me you're telling the truth.

    I really want to just let it side, I don't think my dad has been acting suspicious lately, but I keep thinking what if something IS going on. Do you think their marriage will be okay just by giving it time? I don't want to be the one that's going to bring about a rift between them

    I have been in a similar-ish situation. Just pretend nothing happened. He probably doesn't want to bring it up himself.


    Good luck mate. :hugs:

    It wouldn't be your fault if anything does happen in the marriage. It would be his for using tinder. Talk with him first, though.

    Because it isn't right. OP is an actual dupe (confirmed by CT). And see here going on the defensive, trying to avoid confrontation.
