But seriously, unless your first date involves a seesaw, is this last piece of info really important? To be fair, I have my weight published on my profile. Even though my mother was appalled when I told her that it was she told me I was deliberately trying to sabotage my dating life , my feeling is this: If a guy is going to judge me by the number on the scale, he’s not someone I want to be with anyway.

By Claire Toureille For Mailonline. A woman who weighed kg and was humiliated by a cruel Tinder date who told her to ‘eat a salad’ has shed over 84kg and six dress sizes in a stunning transformation. The young woman, who at her heaviest weighed kg 26st 10lbs and wore a size 26, said she had been speaking to him regularly via video chat, telephone calls and text messages for three months before they finally decided to meet in person. Being her very first Tinder date, Hannah said she was a ‘bundle of nerves’ but extremely excited to meet the mystery man – but was horrified after learning her date had seen her and done a runner.
Hannah Bean, 23, from Perth, lost 84kg and went from a size 26 to a size after a Tinder stood her up and told her to ‘eat a salad’ pictured before the weight loss. Hannah pictured after losing weight went from kg to 86kg after the cruel message. She said life had changed for her. Hannah had been talking to her Tinder match via video chat and had sent him pictures, yet he said she looked nothing like her profile pictured before the weight loss. Feeling more confident, Hannah’s weight ‘melted’ after she put herself on a high-protein diet and started going to the gym regularly pictured after the weight loss.
Instead, Hannah received a shocking cruel text from him that read ‘I walked in and you look nothing like your photos. Do yourself a favour, eat a salad and lose some weight’. Feeling crushed, Hannah said she stayed off Tinder for a long time and instead began focusing on her own journey of self-love, mental wellness and weight loss – and has since undergone a stunning transformation.
She’s now lost an incredible 84kg 13st 3lbs and dropped six dress sizes, and now feels happier and more confident than ever flaunting her brand new 86kg [13st 7lbs], size physique – and has even started dating again.
