Super helpful guy sends Tinder match fairly grim message about her dress
There's something darkly fascinating about other people's dating horror stories, right?
That's what we're telling ourselves in the wake of a pretty odd Tinder interaction we came across today.
A girl has shared messages she got from a lad she matched on the app who thought he was doing her a solid by insulting her appearance.
In a message, a young man by the name of George writes to a girl called Thea and tells her that while he finds her to be "a joke", "that dress in the last photo is not doing any favours."
Like, that is his opener.
Thea was rightly confused and politely asked what he was on about, only for him to reply "you heard!"
Thea, having absolutely none of it, enquired as to whether there was something deeply wrong with George for him to think that that was a suitable message to send a Tinder match.
George, with grammar more offensive than the point he was trying to get across, said he "literally" had to tell her "else I wouldn't of slept".
"It's awful you not reckon? Charity shop job! I tell you what.. GROW UP! And shop somewhere decent!"
He then wrapped it up with a swift sign-off; "Thanks. Hope this helps."
As something of a PSA, Thea shared screen grabs of their chat to Twitter to let us all know what's out there.
The responses look like the contents of a mass group WhatsApp as others clamoured to express their shock and share their own stories of what they'd seen in the trenches of online dating.
As if he matched with you just to say that ?

One guy matched with me just to ask me how many black guys I screw a month and to tell me that men in this country still like small waist lines ??
