A woman just outside Mecca yesterday battled to find her Tinder date who described himself as  “wearing a white robe”.

It took almost one-and-a-half hours before the pair was united, despite the man messaging additional information that he “has a beard”.

The man’s face turned out to be an uglier version of his profile picture when looked at from a horizontal angle under normal daylight.

The woman was relieved to have employed the ‘I’ve-got-something-on-later’ card prior to the engagement enabling flexibility to bail early if there was too much photo-reality variance, or if the guy was too nice.

The ‘I’ve-got-something-on-later-card’ was successfully executed about 25 minutes into the local café session.

The woman’s early departure was especially upsetting for the male hopeful given his parents were away for the week.
