They do say, ‘you only get one chance to make a first impression’. Well, one man surely did that with his Tinder profile.
A single bodybuilder’s dating profile has been labelled ‘racist’ and ‘misogynistic’ after it was shared on social media.
The Lothario came under fire when screenshots of his profile were posted on Twitter, by a person called Zoe, from Essex.
Disappointed with the choice of men, she shared the pictures, with the caption: “I thought I’d give Tinder a go but honestly, it’s fully put me off dating.”
In his pretty ballsy profile pic, the 27-year-old is seen posing in a full-length mirror, with his top off and – bizarrely – his tracksuit bottoms around his ankles.
But it’s his bio and not his photo, which has really got people talking. In it, he states: “I have 3 rules.. Rule 1, I don’t want to be step dad so no kids unless u have just one, I want my OWN thanks (sic).
“Rules 2, if you date black boys or think about it don’t even text me (sic).
“Rule 3, I don’t want a time waster or someone who is a bum .. go make your own money u lazy f***s (sic)”
Sadly for this mystery man, however, there don’t appear to have been many takers.
One angry Twitter user wrote: “He is a narcissistic, racist, misogynistic, delusional muscle head.”
A second person then said: “I’m going to screen shot this for when my relatives ask me why I’m still single.”
A third put: “Wow. What a catch! Maybe drop the rules instead of the pants.”
“I’m so glad I’m married and don’t have to date, because I’d be single forever,” added another.
Zoe isn’t the first person to have gone through a bit of a nightmare while looking for love online.
One woman found out the hard way just how hard online dating can be when she discovered ‘the one’ she had met, was in fact, hiding a secret life.
Alita Brydon had just got home from what she hoped would be the first of many dates with a guy she had matched with on Tinder, but woke up to a message telling her to ‘stay away from my boyfriend’.
Online dating. An absolute minefield.
Even with your trousers up.
