‘Too hot for Tinder’, did you hear that? Yes, that’s what a model claims that Tinder kept deleting her pictures.
In 2017, Luna Benna first signed up to Tinder and had high expectations with hundreds of matches coming in every month. Later, 21-years-old, Luna Benna, became frustrated with Tinder.
The model’s photos got huge attention from men and she was given lots of compliments; was even offered gifts such as holidays and money. Few proposals also came up for her.
Luna state, “I was young, dumb and… looking for love. I received so many odd and silly messages during my time on Tinder. People offering me vacations, proposing to me, even offering money if I agreed to meet up with them. I never actually went through with that one, by the way.”
She adds “I definitely matched with people I liked. Did lots and lots of texting and FaceTiming, phone calls – the whole thing. Although I only actually ever met up with a couple of people from Tinder.
“One was a super awkward experience – the dude said my presence was so powerful it made him uncomfortable. He said it honest-to-god temporarily paralysed him and he’d never met a woman like me before. We didn’t have much in common and the vibe got weird after that.”
Gradually, Luna’s relationship with Tinder didn’t work out well and even before her knowledge she was kicked from the app altogether.
The model was banned because of her popular pictures, and they were reportedly giving rise to the creation of fake ‘catfish’ accounts.
“It’s really disappointing when people create fake profiles after stealing my images – it’s sad for the person behind the image, and sad for the person who gets catfished,” she said.
Due to the reason that Tinder couldn’t tell the difference between the real Luna and the fake one which eventually leads to the knock-on effect.
She added: “There’s so many fake profiles out there, whenever I start a legit account I get reported and Tinder has me taken down. I’ve had a lot of different looks over the years, and have been on the internet forever, so they have lots of options to work with.”
The better part of this situation is that right before her account got deleted Luna found love on the app.
She told, “I met my new guy, my current significant other, on Tinder, just before the ban.”
“He picked me up and we went back to his place for dinner. We had such a fun time, didn’t want it to end!”
“So, we started seeing each other more and more and noticed we had similar goals and motives. We’re pretty much a power couple,” she concludes.
