It’s a tale as old as time: woman joinsTinderand uploads her most fabulous pictures in her best outfits. Man thinks woman cares about his opinion on her outfits. Man is wrong. The sad thing is, this happens so frequently on dating apps that it's a story we're all used to now. Luckily for us though, this one has the best ending.

Thea Lauryn Chippendale, a 20-year-old student at the University of Lincoln was minding her own business swiping on Tinder when she made a match with George, a man who seemingly swipes rights on women purely to insult them. ‘Not gonna lie you’re a bit of a joke but that dress in the last photo is not doing any favours. Hope this helps’, he opens with. Swoon.

‘Excuse me?’, Thea replies, to which she receives an elegant ‘You heard!’. Thea didn't take this unsolicited opinion from a total random lying down. ‘Why did you feel like you needed to comment on it? Is your head that far up your own arse that you thought your opinion mattered?’ she asked.

‘Literally had to tell you else I wouldn’t of slept. It’s awful you not reckon? Charity shop job! I tell you what… GROW UP! And shop somewhere decent! Thanks. Hope this helps,’ he said. Other than the awful grammar, his reply – in typical God-awful men on Tinder fashion - screams insecurity. Because why else would a man think he’s entitled to tell a woman how to dress , and match with someone purely to insult her if he wasn’t a deeply unhappy and self-loathing individual?

Perhaps we should feel some sympathy for such a sad man, but after an amazing reaction from ASOS, we can only join the hordes of fans cheering for what happened next: the ultimate plot twist. After Thea posted the screenshots on Twitter, quickly going viral with near 100,000 likes, it caught the attention of ASOS, who designed the outfit Thea was WORKING in her picture.

‘Here’s to finding our perfect match 😉🍾 Thea babe, let's talk,’ they replied. And now, they’ve added her picture to the string of model shots advertising the dress on their website. With a separate post detailing the turn of events also going viral, it seems everyone is obsessed with this perfect reaction from ASOS. As is Thea.

‘The reaction has been absolutely incredible and I am so so grateful to ASOS for how amazing they have handled the situation,’ she told Grazia, admitting that the comment from her Tinder match had initially made her feel insecure.

‘This may sound a bit vain I quite liked the picture,’ she continued, ‘after receiving the comment, I did actually start to question it a bit and I was looking at every single flaw on the picture. I have never actually had such a horrible comment said to me, so out of the blue, on Tinder before.’

Of course, she’s now been inundated with compliments on the picture, stating that she can’t even go through her DM’s anymore because there are so many. One DM is missing though, an apology from the George the Tinder troll. Not that Thea cares. ‘I don't really have much to say to him if I'm honest,’ she said, ‘I'm just so grateful to everyone else for how amazing they've been and how positive and lovely everyone has been. It's been absolutely incredible.’

If this adorable tale of sexism being turned on its head doesn’t brighten up your Friday we’re not sure what will.
