(Newser) – A New York City woman is receiving both rants and raves for her decidedly bold decision to lure dozens of men to what can only be described as her own self-styled dating game. Per CBS News, the woman, identified in reports as Natasha Aponte, used the dating app Tinder to convince the men to meet her for what they thought was a one-on-one rendezvous in Manhattan's Union Square. But, according to one Twitter user who claims he was among Natasha's marks, that was far from the case. That man, named Spencer, said his interaction with Natasha began with her asking him out to drinks. After flaking out the first time, Spencer said Natasha messaged him a month or so later and invited him to see her friend who was "DJing near Union square" on Saturday.

Spencer said he arrived to a stage, their intended meeting point, where dozens of other men were also gathered. To Spencer's shock, the woman he was intending to meet soon stepped onto the stage. "She says 'I've invited you all here for a chance to go on a date with me,'" Spencer wrote. "And proceeds to give a Hunger Games speech about what its gonna take to date her." Despite his annoyance at having been duped, Spencer had to hand it to Natasha. "At that point I am genuinely amazed at the fallopian fortitude this girl possesses," he tweeted. "This is top 10 greatest finesse of all time. Dudes actually stayed and played." Per Gothamist, the game involved men racing each other and doing pushups in a bid to prove their worth. An Instagram purported to be Natasha's describes her as an "Actress, model, singer." (Read more Tinder stories.)
