What is TikTok's 'Match my Freak' trend? Users are going viral by sharing their weird habits

In the TikTok trend “Match My Freak,” posters share the awkward activities they do alone, even though in reality they would like to have company while they indulge in their spontaneous habits.

In June, the TikTok trend “Match my freak” went viral. To participate in the trend, content creators ask their followers if “anyone will match my freak.”

Then they explain the unusual activities that they usually do alone but would prefer to have company for.

In the background of the viral videos, TikTokers play Tinashe's song “Nasty” with the lyrics “Is someone gonna match my freak.”

Ariana Madix, host of Season 6 of Love Island USA, shared her thoughts on the trend on June 12, just one day after the season premiere.

In her video, she is seen on the set of Peacock's hit series in her gold evening gown. She then asked if anyone would do the same and “order pad thai and sit in silence analyzing over 50 episodes of Love Island with the air conditioning on full blast under big blankets.”

In another version of the “Match my Freak” trend, TikToker “christines_snaps” shared with her 6 million followers what she would like to do with an interesting person.

“Ordering coffee and then taking 7 hours to drink it,” she wrote while dancing with a half-full cup of iced coffee.

And when US “Love on the Spectrum” star Connor Tomlinson posted his take on the trend, it received over 12 million views in just three days.

In keeping with his outburst form, Connor asked if anyone would be interested in “randomly switching to a British accent in the middle of a conversation.”

While the TikTok trend “Match My Freak” sees posters getting creative and initiating conversation starters between themselves and someone who might like the same things as them, the TikTok trend “I Remember When I Lost My Mind” also sees posters sharing the embarrassing things they've done to get the attention of someone they might like.
