Man Seeking Extramarital Affair On Tinder Hook Up With Own Mother
Jessie Cohen, a self-employed entrepreneur in the construction industry, faced his worst nightmare after realizing the woman he had met on Tinder was his own mother.
“I met her at the hotel, she was wearing a feathery mask and a daunting corset. It was dark, we started kissing” he remembers, visibly shaken.
“I had barely spoken a word that she took me into bed. It is only the next morning that we fully realized what had just happened,” he recalls in agony.
“I felt so dirty, I started crying like a little girl. I called up my wife and told her the whole story. I haven’t heard from her since” he told a reporter, tears in his eyes.
A horrific nightmare
Mr. Cohen admits he wishes he had never used tinder in the first place.
“I was seeking an extramarital affair to spice up my sex life, so I used a fake name on Tinder. My mother did the same thing as well. She was wearing a wig and I had just shaved my head, we really had no idea who the other person was” he admits.
“One of my psychiatrists said that we possibly did this on purpose, that it was some sort of Oedipus complex or something. I left his office because I was going to punch him in the face” he recalls.
A life in ruins
Mr. Cohen says he hopes others will take his testimony as a warning.
“By telling my story, I’m hoping I can prevent others from doing what I did, because it has truly destroyed my family” he acknowledges.
“The only person in my family that still talks to me is my grandmother, and that is only because she suffers from Alzheimer’s disease” he admits, visibly remorseful.
A Tinder spokesman claims the company is not responsible for “unfortunate incestuous matches” and warns all users are “fully responsible” and should be careful about who they decide to meet in private.
