Girl Called Fat By Nasty Tinder Date Has Made £800 After Setting Up Crowdfunder
Jade Savage, 28, was subjected to what would probably go down as one of the worst dates in history when the man she met up with called her fat and then drove her back to the station to go home.
After the date, keeping her chin up, she and a friend jokingly set up a GoFundMe page to try to get some of the £93 ($115) costs back from the date, which took her three-and-a-half hours to get to, saying she would spend it on 'wine and sticks of lard'.
The page has so far made £800, with many of the donations coming from well-wishing men, who probably want to apologise on behalf of the unnamed 27-year-old salesman in question.
Jade, who had already been on a few dates with the bloke in question, said she stepped out of the train station, to be told she had 'put some weight on'. For future reference, unnamed man - this is is not OK.
They tried to carry on with the date, but unsurprisingly, the conversation came up again, leading him to drive her back to the station.
Anyway, it looks like Jade will be able to treat herself to a whole lot more wine, and maybe even a nice little holiday to help her recover from having to be in the company of such a - in Jade's words - 'p****'. She's also had offers of date as well as lots of well deserved compliments.
Chris Curtis donated, saying: "B*****s to men like that. I'd come to Leeds and take you out than have you take the train. Have a bottle of wine on me!"
Another said: "I thought you could do with another wine! What an a**hole! You're so pretty and hope the next date goes amazingly!"
Robert Cable said: "She looks beautiful, the man she met is an arrogant fool."
But the single biggest donation of a whopping £200 ($246) came from a Tristan Piñeiro - who has the same name as the Communications Manager at dating site Badoo - who cleverly realised this was a great opportunity for someone to step on Tinder's toes.
He said: "Hi Jade - here's something towards your next, hopefully much better date. We think you'd be more successful on Badoo.com - so please contact us, and we'll set you up with a premium account. Look forward to hearing how you get on!"
Onwards and upwards, Jade!
