Woman gets accused of ‘catfishing’ on Tinder because of stomach in bikini shot

The murky world of online dating is full of stories of people behaving badly.

Ghosting, harassment, abuse, unsolicited penis pictures, rubbish mirror selfies and general acts of idiocy and callousness are all part of modern-day dating narrative.

Then there’s catfishing.

This is when someone basically tricks you into they’re someone else .

It’s what Tinder user Talia Gargan recently – and very unfairly – found herself accused of by a man she was talking to.

Talia, 21, from Lancaster first received derogaroty comments when she shared a picture of herself on Snapchat wearing a bikini.

The charmless man then commented on her photo, writing: "Bit of a belly on ya aren’t you.

"Really didn’t think you looked like that."

Showing a huge amount of restraint, Talia replied:

"Hahahaha, I wasn’t made to impress you. You w****r."

Then she swiftly blocked him.

But just like a stubborn stain, the troll refused to go away. He remade contact with her again on Tinder, and decided to stick the knife in once more.

"Sexy belly," he wrote.

"Really glad you uploaded this btw. Would’ve been annoying meeting [and I’m] wasting [my] time [being] catfished."

So Talia decided to this time give him a piece of her mind.

“No wonder you’re f**** single hun…

“Sorry I’m not a size 6 I wasn’t made to impress you or all people, you ain’t nothing special, looks don’t mean s*** when you’re a nasty p***.

"Now that you’ve gone out your way after I blocked you on snap to comment on my body yet again, you must have an exciting life.

"I wouldn’t have met you anyway ya t*****."

Talia shared her response on Twitter, where it seems to have struck a chord with others.

"Girls shouldn’t be made to feel like they’re made to be skinny, you are who you are and if people can’t accept it then they shouldn’t feel like they can comment," she told Mamamia .

"Not everyone thinks before they speak though, being small minded won’t get people far."

The one thing she does regret is her "heat of the moment" wording.

But we actually think she gets her point across perfectly.
