A massive bellend tricked a woman into flying to Amsterdam following a holiday romance - only to then tell her she was subject to a 'pull a pig' prank.

Devastated Sophie Stevenson was stood up by Dutchman Jesse Mateman, who sent her a message saying 'you were pigged', following her arrival in the Netherlands.

Sophie, 24, who had forked out £350 ($461) for the trip, managed to reply to him: "How could you be so cruel though!" before she was blocked.

The pair met in Barcelona in August, where they endured the trauma of a terror attack that killed 13 people and injured 130 people.

Sophie, who travelled 500 miles to Holland before being brutally dumped, said: "All my friends and family cannot believe someone could be so cruel.

"It's one thing to have a joke, but this goes well beyond banter."

"We were there for four more days, and felt safe while we were with them, so we hung out loads.

"It was a proper holiday romance for Jesse and me. We slept together in Barcelona and when I came back to the UK, we carried on talking every day. We talked about having a long distance relationship."

Back in the UK, Sophie carried on messaging and calling Jesse, and they discussed giving things a go.

The pair planned for her three-day visit. Jesse was messaging her minutes before her departure - but when she arrived in Amsterdam he ignored her calls.

She said: "We had talked about me coming to visit, and he knew I'd booked flights, that I'd paid for a hotel and he was going to meet me when I arrived at 5pm on Friday.

"We were talking up until I got on the plane. But when I arrived, he wasn't there to pick me up.

"I called him a bunch of times, and he didn't answer. I waited at the airport for two hours and I hadn't heard anything, I was really starting to panic about being abandoned.

"There was a free shuttle bus to the hotel, so I made my way there and six hours later he finally messaged me - on Snapchat."

Sophie told of her horror at reading how Jesse taunted her with pig and laughing face emoticons.

She said: "'Pulling a pig' is where a guy tries to pull the fat ugly girl. When I saw that message, I wanted to be sick. I was in a foreign country, on my own and the guy that I liked had just abandoned me.

"I replied and said 'how could you be so cruel!' and all he did was block me. I just couldn't believe it."

Sophie added: "I had no way of contacting him. I was petrified being in Amsterdam all on my own. I was so upset about what happened that I changed my flights so I could head home the next morning. I am furious that this happened and it's so dangerous.

"I want people to know what happened to me so that this never happens to anyone else."

Sophie, who has been unable to contact Jesse since the incident, said her friends and family are mortified for her.

She said: "Given the circumstance of how we met, you'd think that he'd be slightly more sensitive. I can't believe this has happened to me."

Jesse did not respond to requests for comment.
