Tinder can be a tricky, tricky game – just ask model Jodie Weston.
Even though she only used the popular app for two weeks, the 26-year-old had more than her fair share of awful dates – including a man who she claims bought her a pet chihuahua and then accidentally killed it.
She's been put off the app for good after going on three "horrendous" dates on her search for Mr Right.
The first date saw her meet a guy at a bar in London which ended when he fell off his chair.
She said: "My date spent the entire time leaning as forward on his chair as humanly possible until he practically had his face buried in my cleavage.
"I was about to make my excuses and tell him I had to leave, when he leaned too far forward on his chair and fell forward off it onto the floor."
For her second hope at meeting 'The One', Jodie arranged to meet a guy at the cinema where they planned on watching the latest movie in horror franchise Purge.
But just as they were about to walk into the screen she heard a woman screaming.
Jodie, who has appeared on Channel 5's Rich Kids Go Skint and the BBC's Eating With My Ex, said: "A guy who worked in the City took me to the cinema to watch the latest Purge movie – and as we were about to go in, I heard a woman screaming.
"I turned around and saw a woman making a beeline for us. All I could see was her pointing and shouting with this sparkly ring on.
"I had no clue that he was married. I just got my popcorn and ice-blast, ready to see a film, and was caught in the foyer between a cheating husband and his raging wife.
"I just told them 'good luck' and made a very quick exit."
The third, however, was easily Jodie's worst dating experience yet.
She said the man turned up to her flat in Canary Wharf, London – with a chihuahua as a gift.
Jodie claimed "his face totally screwed up and he looked like the devil had taken over his soul" when she turned down the gift and he stormed out with the puppy.
Model Jodie said she thought she would never see him again – so was shocked to find him sitting outside her flat days later.
Jodie said: "I kept in touch with him after the date, not because I wanted to continue dating him, but because I was concerned for the dog's welfare.
"He continued trying to see me, but I told him I was going back to Derbyshire for a few days to see my family as an excuse.
"The morning I was due to go away, I went downstairs to get in my mum's car – and who did I see waiting outside the entrance to my building?"
Jodie said her Tinder date then tagged along and spent a few days in the Midlands with her family – awkwardly asking her step-dad to adopt him.
Getting back to London from her disastrous trip, she revealed: "When I got back to London, I tried to have as minimal contact with him as possible.
"But a couple of weeks later, I found out that the dog had died, likely because he was feeding it a diet of Twiglets and Rubicon Mango Juice."
Things took a bizarre turn when Jodie's Tinder guy "wouldn't take no for an answer".
She claimed: "After the chihuahua died, I tried to fully cut things off with him, but he wouldn't take no for an answer.
"One day, I came home and the concierge of building called me to show that I'd been sent this massive teddy bear – the biggest you'd ever see.
"Around an hour later, he started frantically texting me, asking me if I got the gift and that he was coming over.
"I told him that I was going to ban him from my building. He came anyway, and told me that if I didn't take him back, he'd call the police to get his teddy bear back.
"In the end, he was escorted off the premises – minus the teddy bear, which I still have!"
The three awful experiences are far from Jodie's only dating horror stories.
The part-time DJ, said she also dated a guy who forced her to pay a £200 bar bill in Oxford Circus when his card declined.
She said that she was even dumped by an ex who left her on holiday, which led her to drinking whiskey in the hotel bar by herself.
Jodie has decided to stop using online dating, and will go back to old-school methods of meeting someone in person.
