A model claims she was kicked off Tinder after other users reported her account as fake because she's 'too attractive' to be real.
Holly Valentine, 26, lives in LA but often travels around the world for work. So she decided to join a dating app as a way of meeting people while exploring new cities.
Despite insisting she's incredibly shy when it comes to meeting strangers, she downloaded the dating app anyway.
She then signed up for a premium package, which allows you to browse potential matches from all over the world.
Afterward, Holly uploaded a few cute snaps to show off herself.
While she often shares saucy photos on Instagram, she insists that the pics on her dating app were 'clean.'
Yet after just a few hours, she found several messages from her matches insisting she must be fake.
And to her disbelief, Tinder blocked her.
"I travel a lot. So I wanted to date and meet new people when I was traveling and in town. So I bought the most expensive package that they offer that lets you set your location to anywhere."
"It's like $86, which for an app is expensive!"
"I used clean pictures, did everything I was supposed to, swiped right on a couple of people, I got some matches."
"Then, after a couple of hours, I went back and saw a couple of previews of messages. And then I got locked out of the app."
"The previews that I did see were 'you're probably not real,' 'why would a girl like you be on tinder.'"
"I didn't even get to meet anyone or even really use the app."
After contacting Tinder to know what the issue was, they refunded her money. However, they didn't give her an explanation for taking down her profile.
Holly also says she often gets marriage proposals on her Instagram account, along with strange requests from men.
"I have a lot of respect for people with fetishes, so it takes a lot to weird me out."
"But the one I am always shocked by is when guys want me to 'ruin them.' [For example, they tell me to] reach out to their wives or girlfriends or even jobs if they don't obey me."
"I've done it once, and I could never do it again. Most of the time, the requests are pretty normal, though."
The self-proclaimed lifestyle and branding pro has also launched an OnlyFans account where she posts raunchier content for subscribers.
But despite selling skin snaps for cash, Holly insists she has always been a genuine 'girl next door.'
"I'm all-natural, very fit, blonde, girl next door looking."
"I do have a nerdy side, and I'm not afraid to show it. But depending on the wardrobe or makeup, I can go from looking like an all-natural college girl or a bombshell."
"I'm extremely real, and people know that the first second. When people meet me in real life, the first thing they say is 'you're exactly the same in real life.'"
Even though she has given up on Tinder, she has a few tips for anyone who wants to meet her.
"Don't try too hard. Everyone is most desirable when they are true to themselves. I also love it when a guy smells nice."
