Woman Sets Up Hilarious 'Honest Tinder' Profile To Show Matches How She's Really Spending Quarantine
Social media often shows off the best, glossiest versions of ourselves, but in the current climate, most of us are spending our days binge-watching Netflix and working in our PJs.
Keeping it real, Gabriella Old, 23, has set up an 'honest Tinder' Instagram page (@honest_tinder).
The advertising intern is posting hilarious photos of herself staring through her bedroom window aimlessly, applying spot cream and even filing her feet. Which, let's face it, is all of us RN.
"I'm cutting the bullsh*t to get right to the nitty-gritty of real life to make sure people can handle it," said Gabriella, from Padstow, Cornwall.
"On your dating profile you filter out any flaws and then often three months down the line, the person you've been seeing runs for the hills as soon as you unveil your true self.
"But when you're in self-isolation you can't go and do the usual showy-offy dating pictures.
"I'm documenting the dullest moments of my day - it's all the things I do but that I wouldn't normally tell people.
"Sometimes I tell my friends things that I am thinking of doing and they say 'oh Gabs that's disgusting, why do you do that.'
"I think, 'okay brilliant that's the reaction that I want'.
"I'm giving followers a window into my world - each week I unveil a new bad habit or flaw that I would usually hide and film it through the window."
The 23-year-old explained she's looking for someone creative, family-orientated and funny and tends to go for personality over looks.
So far, her matches have been loving the the account, with one messaging: "Gabs, this has made me laugh so much! I love it and I'm totally with you!"
While another said: "Honestly the funniest thing! You're confronting everyone's frustrations with dating and I love it."
Our favourite posts include one of Gabs plucking a hair from her chin as well as a video of her solo wine and cheese night (which we are defo recreating ourselves).
"I'm showing people that they can be themselves to the person that they might want to be with really," she explained.
"You want to find someone who likes those flaws or isn't bothered by them."
We are obsessed with this account. Everyone follow immediately!
