A model has claimed she is too good looking to find love, stating the reason she has been unlucky in love is because of her looks.
Jenna Thompson, a mum-of-two, split with her ex partner two years ago and since then, has admitted her dating life has been a tad on the disastrous side.
Believing herself to ‘intimidate’ nice guys, Jenna explained how the men she tends to attract are only after one thing – because of her looks.
Appearing on ITV’s This Morning, as per the MailOnline, Jenna described dating apps as ‘shallow’ and explained how they only worsen the problem.
Speaking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, the model said:
It’s impossible. It’s really shallow. People get a kick out of how many swipes they get which narrows down any nice people.
I think I intimidate guys. Nice guys. I seem to attract guys who are only after one thing. People who think they’ll have a go and just want hook ups. No one is looking for anyone that serious.’
Jenna went on to say how dating apps are a ‘minefield,’ while also referring to some dating disasters she’s had in her past.
One such disaster was a blind date who turned out to be a traffic warden she had argued with over a parking ticket he issued her with earlier in the day.
I was set up on a date with some friends of mine and it ended up being with a guy who was a parking ticket officer – and he’d actually given me a parking ticket earlier that day.
These are my friends trying to set me up on a date with somebody local. He wasn’t for me.
That wasn’t the only (or even worse) negative experience she’d had though, going on to describe an even more awkward experience she had with a married man.
The model said:
I had this guy who confessed that he was married, relatively late on into us dating. It was quite cold and wet on the date. He told me face-to-face.
He actually slipped and fell over while trying to chase after me after I was walking off and I had to take him to the hospital because he knocked himself out.
The model’s comments led many to slam her on social media, criticising her for praising her looks in such a way and calling her ‘fake’.

To good looking to find a man 🤔😩🤷♂️ #thismorning I'm no tom cruise but she's borderline average definitely not to good looking. Maybe that's why she can't find a man the ones she goes for are better looking than her 🤷♂️

Despite her struggles though, and an appearance on Blind Date, Jenna says she is determined to find romance, saying we ‘need a new way of dating’.
On that level, I’ve got to agree: online dating is a pile of crap.
And hey, each to their own right?
