Most online daters will have experienced ghosting at one time or another - but for one poor woman, the experience involved a wasted 1,500 mile flight too.

Business owner Jasmine Triggs, 23, decided to fly from her hometown of Fort Wayne, Illinois, all the way to Texas to meet a man she'd been getting to know online.

But she was left stranded when the man - who she'd been chatting with for seven days - blocked her number the moment she stepped off the plane.

Jasmine and the man had been chatting online for a week (

Jasmine, the owner of a baking company, said: "I was talking to this guy for about a week and he asked me to come out to Texas.

"We were talking to the morning I was due to go.

"We were talking and talking and talking every day, about where he went to school, how he'd been a cheerleader and had a robotics company.

"I liked him. We'd been getting to know each other but it was sexual as well.

She decided to fly from her hometown of Fort Wayne, Illinois, to Texas to meet her love interest (

"He was asking me sexual stuff and he was saying he couldn't wait to see me and that he'd cleaned his living room for me."

The pair had been introduced via an iMessage group chat by a mutual friend who had also never met the man in person.

Jasmine forked out £300 for the five-hour round trip, only to be brutally ditched on arrival.

She said: "When I was on the plane, all my messages were sending to everyone apart from him so he'd obviously blocked me.

Unfortunately, the man stopped replying and blocked Jasmine's number (

"I didn't hear from him all morning and once I landed, I called him, but I realised he'd blocked my number and I was panicking."

Luckily, Jasmine managed to get hold of a friend who lived close by and went to stay with her.

She later posted the incident online to warn other people of the dangers of meeting up with people they've never met.

She said: "Either he thought it was funny or he could have had a wife or girlfriend because he started saying he didn't know me but he shouldn't have left me at the airport.

Jasmine shared her experience as a warning to other online daters (

"If you're going to meet up with someone, make sure you FaceTime them first and make them buy the ticket.

"I don't believe in someone paying for everything which is why I bought my own ticket but if you're going to see them, make sure they buy it because I'm $380 out of pocket and he's said he was going to pay for everything when I got there.

"Make sure they aren't going to leave you there because if it wasn't for my friend, I don't know what I would have done."

The tweet has racked up almost 70,000 likes and some people have even offered to pay for Jasmine's plane ticket.

What an ordeal! Jasmine, it's his loss.
