A UK man, who set up a fake Tinder account with the female filter version of himself, has exposed some of the terrible chat up lines fellow males will stoop to.

Twenty-year-old Jake Askew, from Norwich, says he thought he looked "unreal" as the female version of himself - and so did a lot of others.

His alter-ego 'Jess' received more than 1650 swipes from thirsty dudes, and around 400 matches.

"So rather than going out, me & SJ decided to see how far Jess could go on tinder... within an hour I was the most popular girl in Derby," the uni student posted on Twitter, with screenshots of the resulting messages.

Askew told LADBible, the messages ranged from: "Are you a piece of art because I want to nail you up against the wall," to more sexually explicit requests.

Charming.

The filter caused some havoc online since it came into play last week, with one girlfriend almost breaking up with her boyfriend after believing there was another girl wearing his t-shirt.

Catfish host Nev Schulman hinted at the potential dangers, posting a video of himself as a woman on Twitter with the caption "Why Snapchat, why?"
