Somewhere around Lincoln Park and Lakeview, a Tinder user is using the online dating app to convince men to send free food delivered to her address. Enter the "Tinder Games," where the odds are never in these guys' favor.

Check out the Tinder conversations here. The winner of the Tinder Games is the first one to have free food delivered to their address from one of their Tinder matches. The participant is allegedly a female. "Allegedly?" Well because everyone knows that everyone is 100-percent honest when it comes to online dating. The user asks "her" interested party if "he" is willing to send food from Lou Malnati's Pizzeria or from Nori Sushi on Diversey. The post has gone viral with disgruntled guys writing about how ordering food for a complete stranger is just a sign to how desperate they are when it comes to dating or hook ups. Or whatever.

No one can pinpoint where this user is from, but Lou Malnati's Lincoln Park restaurant's delivery area is between Irving Park Road to the north, to Western Avenue on the west, down Belmont Avenue to Armitage Avenue on the South and Lake Shore Drive to the east. Nori on Diversey delivers from Montrose Avenue on the north, Western Avenue on the west, Division Street on the south and Lake Shore Drive on the East.

If you've heard any strange food delivery stories between those boundaries, share them in the comments. What's the most desperate food-related thing you've done to impress a potential suitor?
