This week, when asked about his romantic past a man on a Turkish dating show revealed he had murdered his wife and lover.
So to confirm what all single women have been afraid of, all the good ones really are taken.
The host of the programme, which obviously has no level of quality control, rightly told the seemingly unrepentant WIFE MURDERER to leave the show to a round of grateful (and slightly terrified) applause.
Take heart singletons and serial relationship screw ups – no matter how utterly crap and depressing your love life is right now, at least you're not the fat, middle-aged Turkish guy who murdered his wife and lover, tried in vain to find love again on a TV show and was forced to leave in disgrace.
Come to think of it, there are quite a few people who are worse off than you in the dating game right now…
At least you're not 90s Jon Hamm, who was unfathomably turned down on a cringe-worthy dating show despite sporting an impressive set of curtains and a penchant for 'fabulosity'. THIS IS THE FUTURE DON DRAPER PEOPLE!
At least you're not a blushing blonde girl who fancies a cross between ‘Crocodile Dundee and Denzel Washington’. WHO LOOKS LIKE THAT? REALLY?
At least you didn’t get set up on a blind date with THIS guy.
Or this guy. You say chronic sweat problem we say slippery cuddles!
At least when you branched out into the world of online dating you didn’t get these messages from a guy. If at first backhanded compliments don’t work, just cut straight to the chase.
Or this modern day sonnet. I think it was originally Lord Byron who wrote, “You looketh like one whom would very much like to imbibe my offspring”.
At least you’ve never had to send a text like this to a close friend.
Or regale a loved one with the tale of this choice encounter.
At least this isn’t the only thing you’ve got going for yourself right now.
And at the very least this chap has never popped up on your Tinder profile, but whatever you do DON’T ask him if the photo is real. And yes, this is really what women have to look at on Tinder.
Ain't love grand?
