Woman shares disturbing Hinge dating app horror story


Katie Coe was left in shock when she received a jaw-dropping text from a man she matched with on Hinge. But what she did next deserves a round of applause. 

A Twitter used has shared her unbelievable dating story with a man she met through the app Hinge.

UK magazine assistant Katie Coe was chatting to Freddie over text, before things got awkward when he confessed he submitted Katie’s photo to website Prettyscale to determine whether she was attractive or not.

The controversial “online test for face beauty analysis” site rates your face 1 to 100 to tell if you’re “ugly or pretty”.

In a series of text messages Katie shared on Twitter, Freddie messaged: “Not gonna lie, I put a couple of your selfies through that Prettyscale website to check if you are actually attractive.”

And then things worsened: “Your score was decent (but your forehead is too big apparently LOL!) So do you wanna go out next week?” he texted.

Katie questioned Freddie as to why he would even confess to using the website to judge her attractiveness.

“Why did you do that? And then tell me about it? Weird,” she replied.

His response? Even more unbelievable.

“I do it for all people I consider dating, just to check if they’re scientifically good-looking and I’m not just confused,” he wrote. “Like I said, you seem alright so next week?”

Obviously Katie declined his invitation, to which Freddie wrote: “Sorry I didn’t mean to offend! I think you’re cute but I just like to be sure!”

Katie had the last laugh when she put Freddie’s profile picture through the same website and it delivered a less than impressive result.

Sharing a screenshot of the verdict, it read: “You are very ugly! You cannot be that ugly.”

Katie texted: “I’ve just run a photo of you through that website and I’m afraid it’s gonna have to be a firm no, bye.”

It was a bit of an ego bruise for Freddie, who responded: “**** you. I’m not ugly. You’re (sic) loss!”

Too funny, too funny.
