I really shouldn’t have been on there on the first place (it was for an article and I made my fiance sign up too) but I found Tinder traumatic.
Admittedly I was swiping right on everyone, but I was getting nine sexual messages for every polite, introductory hello.

Victoria met with the store manager but a few hours after her interview, she was told by a member of staff that she wouldn’t be getting the job because the manager wasn’t keen on her tattoos, Victoria says.
While she was upset to hear this news, she was also pretty confused considering the manager had tattoos himself.
‘I don’t understand how having tattoos can stop me from making a sandwich. I feel I’m being discriminated against for being a girl.’ Victoria then decided to note down her feelings, sending the manager email to address what she says she’d been told.
The email read: ‘My name is Victoria Thomson I was interviewed yesterday by your manager.
‘I believe I’ve heard heard a story from your staff that your not going to hire me because of my tattoos which I have said I will happily cover with a long sleeved T-shirt.
‘I’m happily able to remove my piercings as it is a health and safety hazard of them getting into the food but if it is because of my tattoos I’m not 100 percent sure but that is discrimination.
‘You have got staff with tattoos who haven’t got them covered where I’ve told the manager I will cover them if needed it’s all part of the working routine.’ Despite Victoria’s efforts, the store manager strongly denies that Victoria’s inkings had anything to do with her not being offered the job.
