A Missouri woman dating a “sweet,” “normal” widower with a young son was shocked to discover that the man’s supposedly deceased wife was still alive and kicking.
Sissy Hankshaw said that when she met a 25-year-old teacher on Tinder, she thought he was “amazing,” and was saddened to learn that his son’s mother had died in a “tragic accident.”
But after some internet research, Sissy discovered that the woman wasn’t dead at all, and in fact was still dating the man from Tinder – and when Sissy confronted him, he had a mind-boggling reaction.
Story time! Sissy Hankshaw (right) shared her worst Tinder experience in response to a prompt on TikTok, recalling the ‘great’, ‘normal’ 25-year-old teacher she met on the dating app
Sissy, who is currently in a relationship with another man, shared the story of her bad Tinder experience on TikTok in April.
“I went on a Tinder date with a guy who was a teacher. He was 25, he was teaching school kids and I thought, “Oh, that’s so sweet,” she said.
“He had a son. He said his son’s mother had died, tragically, she was dead, he was a single father. How awful.
“The other teachers watched his kid go out on a date. I thought, “Oh, that’s so sweet. How nice of them.” He loved to run, he seemed like a normal person,” she continued.
And of course I had an Instagram stable to watch this tragic story unfold because I like that kind of thing. I like pain and sorrow,’ she said funny.
“So I started stalking her on Instagram and I went back to show it to my boyfriend and looked back another day and when I did she had new posts and so I stalked some more and found, of course, her whole family — and career history on the internet,” Sissy continued.
Ooh! She expressed her condolences for the tragic accident that took his wife’s life, but after doing some research online, Sissy discovered that his wife was still alive and that they were still in a relationship.
Gaslighting: When she confronted him, he insisted his wife was dead and even accused Sissy of lying about what she found
“And it turns out she wasn’t dead at all. She was very much alive, and they were very much in a relationship.”
She marveled: “And he was so normal, he was the most normal person I’ve dated in a long time.”
Shocked, Sissy confronted the man with his blatant lie.
‘[I] told him he was lying and she was really alive and i was like, “What the f*** dude?” And he told me that I lied and that she was actually dead,” Sissy recalled. ‘She lives.’
Commentators were shocked that the man thought he would get away with his lie, especially in the internet age.
Sissy added that she even messaged the other woman on Instagram, but it was never read.
New house! Sissy recently went viral for another video about her new home
She and her boyfriend recently moved from Pennsylvania to Missouri, where they bought their first home based solely on pictures they had seen online.
“If you buy a house without ever seeing it in person, look at secret rooms, I guess,” Sissy captioned her video.
Sissy previously went viral for taking TikTokers on a tour of her new home — which contained a mystery.
She and her boyfriend recently moved from Pennsylvania to Missouri, where they bought their first home based on photos they had seen online.
So Sissy was surprised when she finally got to see the place in person, finding that a room with windows on the second floor that can be seen from the outside had no entry points inside.
“If you buy a house without ever seeing it in person, look at secret rooms I guess,” Sissy captioned her video about the discovery, which has gone viral on TikTok.
“So because of the pandemic, we bought this house on the internet without ever seeing it before, and when we finally saw it in person after looking at it online for two months, we realized there was something really weird about it that we hadn’t noticed.” of the 18 photos we’d been staring at over the past few months,” she explained.
“So part of the house is shaped like a house, and then the back has this little tugboat-like tacky situation,” she says as the camera pans over her house,” she continued.
The house is red and the “tug tacky situation” she refers to is a second floor that rises just above the back of the house, big enough to close off one room.
No doors! Sissy showed her office and pointed out that it had no access to the attic at the front of the house
“We realized there was something really weird about it that we hadn’t noticed from the 18 photos we’d featured in the past few months,” she explained.
But wait! Soon they discovered something worth investigating in the closet
Understood! They found a boarded-up area in the wall near the floor, which they removed with tools
There Sissy has set up her office and she shows the inside of the room.
But on the other side of the house is another room that rises higher than the first floor, with a triangular roof and even a window.
The mystery, however, is that that second area cannot be accessed from any other point in the house—not her office, and not the floor below.
“As you can see, there is absolutely no access to the other part of the attic anywhere,” she says, swinging her camera around her office. “There’s no way to access the other part of the roof that protrudes from the front of the house.”
Her video, uploaded in April, has gone viral, garnering 1.2 million likes — and plenty of comments begging for more information.
So Sissy and her boyfriend set out to investigate and eventually found a way to access the hidden attic – via a shelf nailed into the underside of a wall in their closet.
Open! There they found not so much a usable room as a small attic with very low ceilings
Why? What Sissy found odd, however, was that a previous owner had put lockable windows in the unusable attic
Interesting: it also had the floors finished, which are now covered with insulation
To score! The house was also a bargain, with the couple paying just $12,365.63 for their down payment with an $800-a-month mortgage.
Using tools, they unscrew the board from the wall to reveal what was on the other side.
