Online dating can be a minefield.
Whether it’s ghosting or catfishing you’re worried about you’ll probably meet one or two bad eggs.
But, you never expect to be accused of being one because of your choice in photos.
One bloke learned that photoshop is a big no-no when it came to Tinder.
But, he wasn’t smudging away his spots or giving himself bigger arms…
Carter Hambley, a comedian from Chicago, posted a funny snap of himself with Star Wars character Baby Yoda sitting on his lap.

The cult figure creature was clearly photoshopped into the picture.
But, it seemed this was a problem for some people.
Carter, 21, was pleased when he matched with someone and they sent him a message.
They said: “Where did you get that Yoda doll?”
The Star Wars fan explained that it wasn’t a doll, just a Photoshop trick.
The confused woman replied: “No not the photo.
“I mean the Yoda doll.”
Carter hoped to turn the conversation into a fun chat and said: “Yeah it’s not a doll, unfortunately!
“Anyways! What kinda movies do you like, besides Star Wars, presumably 🙂 “
However, it seems the young woman was only interested in the comedian for his Yoda doll.
She took offence and accused him of “cat fishing” her.
She wrote: “So you just… put a fake images on your profile?
“That’s literally the definition of catfishing.”
She added: “You’re a liar and a sneak and I’m reporting you.
“Not letting you fool anyone else with your little tricks.”
It seems she was really passionate about Baby Yoda.
After the woman reported him, Tinder even blocked his whole account!
Posting some screenshots of the chat on Twitter, Carter captioned them: “God, I hate this app.”
The post racked up a huge one million likes, 150,000 retweets and 5,200 replies.
Fellow Tinder users flocked to his Tweet to share their experiences.
One wrote: “It’s just impossible to date nowadays.”
He continued: “After five terrible years attempting to use Tinder and other apps…
“I’m now preparing to hire a surrogate to carry my child.”
“How dare you convey humour on your dating profile,” joked another.
Another added: “My question is, why did he get banned if he didn’t break any rules?
“There’s no way in f***ing hell that is catfishing.”
But, some shared their happy Tinder stories too.
A woman wrote: “Met my fiancé on tinder and our daughter will be born any day now.”
Here’s hoping Carter finds the right girl for him.
