In her video, Sissy explained how she was heartbroken to learn that her date had lost his wife and was now raising their son alone.
She listened closely as her date explained that he was finally starting to look for love again after his wife’s tragic death.
He even told Sissy that “other teachers would watch his son while he went on dates”.
“I was like how sweet, that’s so nice of them,” Sissy remembered telling him.
But these kind feelings went out the window when Sissy later decided to look up her date’s wife on Instagram a few days later.

TikTok reacts to woman’s Tinder date discovery
In the comments on TikTok, Sissy added to the story, explaining how she also contacted the man’s wife on Instagram, but the other woman “never read” her message.
Despite that, commenters on TikTok couldn’t get enough of Sissy’s story, with many unable to believe her date thought he could get away with that.
“Sir? How can you have a hidden wife and soooo much audacity? Where do you keep it all?” one unimpressed commenter questioned.
“Oh wow… that’s like serial killer vibes,” another concerned user added while someone else called the entire situation a “red flag”.
Sissy’s experience also caused one commenter to question her own dating experience.
“I had a week-long fling with somebody once who told me his wife was dead…now I’m thinking back like…was she just out of town???” the worried woman shared.
“He also had a kid and said his wife died in a ‘hiking accident’.
“Even when I believed she died, I thought that was a little sus, like it’s so rare to die hiking??”
