Guy Gets Roasted For Using 'Dead Grandad' Story To Slide Into A Woman's DMs
A wannabe suitor tried his luck with an unconventional chat-up technique over the site's Messenger service, bringing up his dead grandparent as a means of breaking the ice.
Needless to say, his plan backfired spectacularly.
Rachel Brogan, 23, a clerical officer for the NHS who lives in Scotland, received the message out of the blue one evening, asking her "Hey did you hear about my granddad x"
Confused, not having any idea who she was messaging, Rachel replied, "What?"
The hapless Romeo then pretended he'd sent the message to the wrong person - before proceeding to make an inappropriate advance, which Rachel flat-out ignored.
Rachel told us she usually prefers to meet suitors through "apps, or in person normally!"
News of the exchange delighted more than 30k-and-counting people, who cheered her on via Twitter.
"Sympathy gimmick" was one user's scathing opinion.
"I suppose he needs a date to the funeral" chimed in another.
"I think it was just a weird way to get my attention," Rachel told us. "I don't think he meant to click someone else at all, ha ha ha."
Rachel's story will come as no surprise to many women using dating apps like Hinge, Tinder or Bumble, who have received unsolicited pics, crude messages and even trolling from the opposite sex.
Worryingly, this isn't the first time this has happened to Rachel, either. The clerical officer, who enjoys sharing her pics via her Instagram @rachelbroganxoxo, has seen it all before.
"Yeah, I get quite a few ones like that."
After such a public dressing down, let's hope the clumsy Facebook user takes note and learns a lesson or two in the art of speaking to love interests.
Another case proving that, sometimes, the silent treatment really is the best policy. Well played, Rachel.
