Model Jodie Weston Reveals Worst Tinder Dates, Including One Who Killed A Chihuahua
Everyone's heard their fair share of Tinder stories, but there are definitely some corkers in here.
She even believes that one of the men involved might have killed a chihuahua that he bought for her as a gift on their first date.
Seriously, who buys a dog for someone they've never met? People are weird.
Anyway, Jodie - who has appeared on Channel 5's Rich Kids Go Skint as well as Eating With My Ex on BBC Three - said that she downloaded the app earlier this May with the hope of finding Mr Right.
One of the men fell straight off his chair as a result of leaning in too close to her, which is pretty damn creepy.
Another took her to the cinema - so far, so normal - to see a horror film called Purge - again, nothing weird here - but then was confronted by his wife outside the theatre.
There we go.
Far and away the worst though, is the third man she spoke about.
This is the guy who turned up at her London flat with a chihuahua puppy.
Who does he think he is, a gigantic seagull or something?
After she politely declined the bizarre present, he stormed off. That wasn't the last she heard from him though.
Jodie explained: "I kept in touch with him after the date, not because I wanted to continue dating him, but because I was concerned for the dog's welfare.
"He continued trying to see me, but I told him I was going back to Derbyshire for a few days to see my family as an excuse.
"The morning I was due to go away, I went downstairs to get in my mum's car - and who did I see waiting outside the entrance to my building?"
You've guessed it.
She continued: "When I got back to London, I tried to have as minimal contact with him as possible.
"But a couple of weeks later, I found out that the dog had died, likely because he was feeding it a diet of Twiglets and Rubicon Mango Juice. After the chihuahua died, I tried to fully cut things off with him, but he wouldn't take no for an answer.
"One day, I came home and the concierge of building called me to show that I'd been sent this massive teddy bear - the biggest you'd ever see.
"Around an hour later, he started frantically texting me, asking me if I got the gift and that he was coming over.
"I told him that I was going to ban him from my building. He came anyway, and told me that if I didn't take him back, he'd call the police to get his teddy bear back.
"In the end, he was escorted off the premises - minus the teddy bear, which I still have!"
Well, at least some good came of it, sort of.
Anyway, after that brief foray into online matchmaking, she's now decided to revert to the old-fashioned method of actually meeting people in real life.
She added: "That way, I can do some face-screening, to make sure they aren't a catfish or a total lunatic - though so far not even that's worked.
"I'm trying to find my Mr Jodie and future husband that every girl dreams of finding, but I think I've been born with a curse of attracting nutters.
"My advice is that if the guy turns up with a chihuahua, don't stick around to check on the dog - just call the RSPCA instead. And maybe, to also say a prayer before a date, and ask God not to let the next one be as horrendous as the last."
