A Woman Pretended To Be A Ghost On Tinder And Men Still Tried To Chat Her Up

Tinder can be wonderful place – where else could you quote Morrissey lyrics or pretend to be Jane Austen and men will miss the joke and *still* try and pick you up?

Actor and comedian Grace Spelman decided to re-download Tinder and try out a tactic of her own: pretend to be a ghost.

Spelman told Mashable: “I tweeted the idea as a joke first. Then, during finals week, I put the plan into action and it became a form of procrastination.”

Some men were confused by the joke. “A lot of men would start off angry,” Slepman told Mashable. “They would begin our conversations already upset at the fact that they were being trolled.”

She ended her time as a ghost with the plea: “Let’s stop unfunny men in 2015.”
