Playboy model who kept her profile 'PG' to look like 'an average girl' claims the dating app still 'rejected' her because she's 'too beautiful.'
Tahlia Paris, 24, is too hot to handle, at least according to Bumble moderators.
The LA-based model and former Playboy Cybergirl of the Year created an account on the popular dating app in the hope of finding love.
She said she had been single for four years and hoped online dating would be the solution to finding a man to spend her life with.
Instead of date requests, Paris claims she received a notification that Bumble moderators had removed some photos from her profile.
She concluded that the reason for the removal must be the photos were 'too hot,' because they 'didn't' break any user policies.
Paris claimed the company removed three of her photos: One of her photos in a bikini on the beach, one of her playing Pac Man in a bikini top, and another red carpet snap.
In response to the decision, however, the dating app referenced 'shirtless bathroom mirror' selfies. The app added that they 'prohibits photos of people indoors wearing swimsuits or underwear.'
Paris, who also works as a DJ, explained:
"I was on the app for not even a few hours because pictures I tried posting to my profile were removed even though they were normal photos."
"It happened three or four times to different pictures. And Bumble only allowed one of my pictures to stay up, which was really hurting my odds in the dating app."
Paris, who has more than 890,000 Instagram followers, insisted that all her photos on the dating app were 'very PG.'
"The photos I posted very were basic. One was a selfie of myself, one was a picture a friend of mine had taken at the beach."
"I tried to keep it very PG and not model-esque at all."
Paris went on to explain that she just wanted to come across as 'another average girl' looking for love.
She even kept her popular Instagram page private at the time so potential matches wouldn't get the wrong idea.
"I wanted guys to not stop at my profile because I'm a professional model but because I was just another average girl looking to date."
"I even kept my Instagram and everything private and separate from Bumble."
"I've had guys in the past solely try to hook up with me because of my presence on social media."
Paris also revealed that she joined the online dating foray due to the pandemic, which has made it difficult to meet people in traditional settings.
"Online dating has never really been something I'm into. But in these circumstances, I thought I'd try it. But it didn't work out. Maybe it's for the best."
"For now, I'm at a stand-still with dating sadly. But hopefully things will open soon so I can get back out into the normal dating world."
As Paris says, she wants to keep her social media profiles private, and she's looking for a 'real' relationship. Guys, don't chase her for the wrong reasons.
