Single bodybuilder sparks fury with his controversial Tinder bio
Dating in the 21st century can be a minefield. Nobody has any time to meet up, most of us are too broke to afford to go on decent dates, and, if you're not on an app, there's very little chance you'll find someone out there in the wild.
These three singletons are the most popular matches on Tinder:
But even that can cause issues. Apps like Tinder or Bumble supposedly makes the process easier, but - as with most modern technology - they always end up presenting a whole new set of problems. There's so much more pressure to look perfect, for one thing, and it's genuinely very difficult to actually get your personality across in just a couple of pictures and a short bio.
Well, for most people it is. For this guy, it was pretty easy:
Last week, a Twitter user shared the dating profile of a 27-year-old.
"I thought I’d give Tinder a go but honestly, it’s fully put me off dating," she wrote alongside two images: one of Kirk with his trousers round his ankles (strong look, my guy), and one of his accompanying profile, which came with a set of "rules":
"I have 3 rules.. Rule 1, I don't want to be step dad so no kids unless u have just one, I want my OWN thanks.
"Rules 2, if you date black boys or think about it don't even text me.
"Rule 3, I don't want a time waster or someone who is a bum .. go make your own money u lazy f***s [sic]."
Then, he added:
"I have my own 2 bed flat I bought.
"I body build.
"I have a German Shepherd.
"I eat a lot.
"I don't take s**t."
Before rounding it all off with a cheery, "Good luck girls."
Understandably, between the racism and the misogyny, not a lot of people were really going for Kirk's stunning offer of a 2 bed flat and penchant for overeating. Instead, they roasted him on social media.
Now that he's been put on blast, it's probably unlikely that Kirk will find a date. Hopefully, he will find some respect. And common decency. And a belt.
