Dating is a minefield, especially in the age of the apps. And one woman has revealed how she gloriously owned her date after he accidentally sent her a message fat-shaming her.

The incident was later shared on TikTok by unlucky in love Kersten Hovis with the caption: "Reality of dating in 2020."

Kersten said the texting mishap happened after her date picked her up from her home and proceeded to message his friend an update.

It was a far from kind assessment of Kersten, who he described as 'bigger than I thought', and it went on to note that her 'her family is loaded'.

The message read: "Headed that way, she's bigger than I thought but holy f**k her family is loaded."

Unfortunately for Kersten's date, however, he did not send his assessment to his friend, but her - and it happened when they were together.

Instead of ignoring the message, Kersten pulled a boss move and proceed to reply: "I'll pray for ya bud."

The pair went on to spend about 20 minutes in each other's company before Kersten exited what we can only hope was one of the worst dates of her life.

The dating fail unsurprisingly went viral on TikTok and users almost unanimously agreed that Kersten had a lucky escape.

Reacting to the TikTok, one viewer remarked: "Babe you really dodged a bullet."

"God was watching out for you lol bye boy!" added a second, while a third wrote: "You're a queen and will find better!"

In another TikTok, Kersten added more juicy details about what went down in the car.

She said that after replying to his text message: "I looked at him and I was like, 'You didn't mean to send that, did you?

"And he was like, 'No'. I was like, 'Well you can just turn this car right back around'. And that's what he did.

"I just told him how insecure he was and how shallow he was, and I knew that's why he was still single.

"So we sat in awkward silence for the ten minute ride home."

She also asserted that despite being body-shamed, she loves the skin she is in.

"I'm 5 ft 9, I don't expect myself to be a twig. I have some thighs, it's okay, I love that about myself," she said.

"I'm beautiful and your opinion doesn't change my opinion of myself. If anything, it just lets me know what I deserve even more."
