A WOMAN who believed she had found ‘the one’ on Tinder was horrified to discover that he already had a girlfriend.
Alita Brydon, from Melbourne, had been exchanging ‘personal and intimate’ but ‘mundane’ emails with the man in question for several weeks but had struggled to meet up.
Her crush lived in a town two hours away and was busy with work and kids, but as Alita describes was ‘readily available on the phone.’
However, one day she received a message from him saying that he would be in town and that they should meet up for a drink, which went well from the moment they met.
Writing for MamaMia she said: “Without saying a word he laid his lips on me, laid his palm on my lower back and kissed me. It was happening. Everything was coming together.”
Alita returned from the date absolutely positive things would go further, as she said “I’d met the one.”
However, when she woke the next day she was met not by a message from her date but with one from an unknown woman which read “stay away from my boyfriend.”
She was horrified as the woman revealed that they had met after Alita had matched with the man and that she had introduced him to her family.
The pair had even planned to move into together and Alita’s dream man had apparently purchased an engagement ring.
She apologised to the woman before blocking the man she had believed to be ‘the one’ warning others to be careful of who they trust.
Alita has not been shy when it comes to her dating life having previously spoken out about her ‘addiction’ to Tinder which saw her spend 1460 hours on the app.
Speaking to News Corp she explained that she was also blowing money on the dating app where she was paying for a Gold membership.
She said: “What if a match with Mr Right is only $3 away? It’s like having a pokie machine in your phone, just one more hit and you might win the romantic jackpot.
“Surely, love is worth an extra three bucks! I was getting deeper and deeper into the Tinder trap.”
The writer has since gone on to delete her dating profile.
