A TINDER user has branded men “trash” after a match went out of his way to condemn her “charity shop” dress.
Thea Chippendale received the fashion critique from a Tinder user known only as “George”.
The 20-year-old student at Lincoln University was told by gallant George: “Not gonna lie, you’re a bit of a joke. But that dress in the last photo is not doing any favours.”
He added: “Hope this helps.”
Thea tweeted the exchange together with a picture of her wearing the garment in question, a mink lace midi dress from ASOS, worth £75.
She wrote: “Men are trash. (Included the pic he’s on about).”
In her exchange, Thea asked George: “Why did you feel like you needed to comment on it?
“Is your head that far up your own a**e that you thought your opinion mattered?”
George replied: “Literally had to tell you 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. Thanks. Hope this helps.”
@CharlWadex responded: “Someone arrange a date with him and all of us can just turn up wearing that dress.”
@ourrachblogs commented: “His ex had that dress and wore it when she cheated on him.
“It’s the only explanation here.”
@actoraidanscott said: “Probs jealous because you wear it better than he ever could.”
@briskizzyb said:”That’s what happens when you swipe right on a guy named George.”
Commenting on her reaction to the message she said: “My first reaction was shock and I was quite upset.
“I wore the dress for a wedding.”
She added: “I was shocked about it going viral and I didn’t expect it at all, but I’m very appreciative of all the positive comments that everyone has been writing, it’s been so lovely.”
Others have replied to tell of their similar Tinder experiences.
@TashOldershaw said: “Some guy matched with me once just to tell me he didn’t like my eyebrows.”
@elly_ferrin said: “A dude matched with me just to tell me my curly hair was obviously fake because the curl pattern was inconsistent…mans looked like Stu from Ice Age.”
@iconthicc_jordd said: “Some guy matched with me just to tell me my curly hair will look creepy when I’m old and I’m ugly oof.”
Thea said: “If I’m honest, I think matching with him was an accident because I can’t actually remember swiping right for him.
“There wasn’t really much more after that, I told him to get a life and to stop dragging girls down because of their own insecurities!”
While George hasn’t contacted Thea again, she’s aware he knows his comments are online.
She added: “One of his friends tagged him in the post, so he definitely knows he’s gone viral.”
Yesterday, another Tinder user amazed the internet with a snap which showed that his shoe size was the same as a two-litre bottle of Irn Bru.
The 30-year-old man, who also described himself as a “swimsuit model”, caused a stir when his profile displayed a picture of a blue shoe with an orange stripe placed next to the fizzy drink bottle.
His Tinder bio read: “Aye I’m dead tall well spotted.
“Swimsuit model/black santa/Bride/Big Foot.”
