The world of modern day dating can often be IMPOSSIBLE for love-hungry singletons to navigate.
With shows like Love Island introducing new relationship terminology like 'exclusive' and 'closed off' into the fold, and Ken promoting the idea of a 'long-term, long-distance, low-commitment casual girlfriend', distinguishing between real romantics and time-waster daters is becoming more difficult than ever.
And no one is more painfully aware of this heartbreaking reality than one woman in Australia, who felt a special connection with a 'charming' man recently, only for her to subsequently send her string of savage texts.
The Melbourne lady had come across the 'gentleman' in question when online dating, later claiming that he 'seemed lovely' and 'ticked all the boxes'.
After chatting via dating app for several days, the unnamed woman took a punt and asked him on a face-to-face date, which he agreed to.
Taking to the 'Bad Dates of Melbourne' Facebook page later on - the name of which is probably giving away the tragic end to his dating disaster - the woman revealed that the initially felt their meet-up was going really well.
She told her social media followers that they'd spend 'hours talking' and had very similar values.
As the date drew to an end, however, the woman claims that her date had suggested she join him in going back to his place for a 'coffee'.
Not one to go back with a guy after a first date, she rejected his offer, though it looked as though no harm was done by her refusal.
"Admittedly, I was tempted but ultimately decided to refrain," she wrote in the online post.
"He claimed to be 100 per cent ok with this and asked me when we could next see each other. I went home thinking it was one of the best dates I had ever been on!"
It wasn't until the following morning that she discovered how her date truly felt about her declining his offer...
Opening her phone, she'd been sent a colossal text message, telling her that she was overweight and needed to lose a few pounds before their next date.
The woman shared a screenshot of the degrading message, which read: "Hey. I think you're lovely and I could definitely see you in my future. However, to get there I feel I need to address something.
"While you have a beautiful face, you are physically way bigger than any girl I would let myself date. I wold even go as far as saying obese.
"The only reason you are getting a second chance is because your personality is good enough to make me see past this at first."
The outrageous bloke then went on to suggest several means of losing weight, telling her that she needed to take 'immediate action' to 'redeem' herself.
"You will not be seen with me in public again until this is done! My suggestion is PT 5 - 6 times weekly and a strict diet."
On top of that (I know, it gets worse...), he went on to comment on her 'old fashioned views on sexuality', telling her that the fact she 'wouldn't let me enjoy you physically last night was disappointing'.
"I'd expect more from a woman who is single in her late 20s," he continued.
"I sincerely hope you take these suggestions to heart. If not for my sake then the sale of your own wellbeing. This could be the start of the rest of our lives together."
And, as expected, the bizarre text message has NOT gone down well with online readers.
"Literally read this with my mouth wide open. The AUDACITY!" one penned on the post.
Another added: "This has got to be the WORST date I've ever heard about. The guy has so many red flags, he's basically wrapped in a giant red tarp"
"I am so sorry this happened to you, I'm sure you are glad he showed his true colours early but understand how hard it must have been," a third went on.
