The internet has definitely made relationships a lot more complicated these days. While it has made finding someone to date easier, probably at least half of them are not who they seem to be in their profiles. One man has even utilized this catfishing tactic with the help of the Snapchat filter which he used to masquerade as a girl on Tinder– it was a success… wait…
20-year-old Jake Askew from Norwich, UK is having quite a lot of fun using the new Snapchat filter. That’s because the social media app introduced an intricate boy or girl filter that will swap your biological gender in appearance. Jake thought that his girl version looked pretty, so he decided to catfish some unwitting men on Tinder. Here’s what
he she looks like:
So, Jake took “Jess” for a spin on Twitter and the results? She got more than 300 matches and tons of proposals both indecent and otherwise. She also got 1,600 profile likes. Some of them
Jake Jess even entertained and the exchange was downright hilarious and thirsty. Needless to say, a lot of horndogs fell for fake Jess and her university girl radiance:
“To be fair I looked at myself with the Snapchat filter on and thought I looked unreal, showed my mate and we thought we’d make a Tinder just to see if I’d get any matches from it… Obviously didn’t expect to be liked by over 1600 thirsty lads,” expressed Jake. Even he was surprised that Jess got so much attention and matches since he thought she looked fake, being a Snapchat filter and all.
You know the drill, be careful of catfishing. You never know when that “Jess” you’ve fallen for turns out to be a “Jake.”
