Woman Hits Back At Man Who Criticised Her Appearance On Tinder
A woman has responded angrily to a man who sent her a message after matching with her on Tinder, criticising her appearance and saying that she was wearing a 'charity shop' dress.
Thea Lauren Chippendale, a 20-year-old student from Lincoln, posted on Twitter after her encounter with a bloke called George who - let me tell you - really needs to work on his game if he's ever going to meet anyone.
Online dating of any kind can obviously be something of a minefield, but it's always best to avoid opening with an insult, George.
After the two matched, Thea received a message that read: "Not gonna lie you're a bit of a joke but that dress in the last photo is not doing any favours. Hope that helps."
Wow. Not a good start.
Thea hit immediately back, saying: "Why did you feel like you needed to comment on it? Is your head that far up your own arse that you thought your opinion mattered?"
Fair point, but George wasn't finished yet. He added: "Literally had to tell you else I wouldn't of [sic] slept. It's awful, you not reckon?
"Charity shop job! I tell you what...GROW UP! And shop somewhere decent. Thanks. Hope this helps."
First off, there's nowt wrong with charity shops. Secondly, don't tell people how to dress.
Thea then took to Twitter to share her experience. She said: "Men are trash."
That's fair on this occasion. She also shared the picture in question, as well as a screenshot of the conversation.

Luckily, a lot of people have been quick to point out that a) she looks just fine, and b) this guy is clearly an arsehole.
One simply said: "You look stunning."
Another added: "Honestly don't see where he's coming from she's beautiful, and regardless he just didn't need to say this at all? Did his mum never teach him 'if you have nothing nice to say don't say it at all'?"
Thea told Pretty52 that she had been left saddened and disappointed by George's comments. The University of Lincoln student said: "It did really upset me when he first sent it to me.
"I understand that people have different opinions about what they see as nice or pretty, but he went out of his way to be mean to me, so I saw it as really malicious and cruel."
Well, that does seem like a fair assessment. Here's a thought, people - be nice to each other or keep your mouth shut.
That, or don't expect to meet anyone on a dating app.
