Woman praised for iconic put-down to man who said she’d be perfect ‘if she lost weight’

A woman was left stunned after a guy on a dating app told her she’d be the ‘perfect date’ if she lost seven pounds.

Katie Lacie, therapist and self-proclaimed “CEO of dating app clapbacks,” regularly shares conversations she’s had with her matches on TikTok, but one man went a step too far when he insulted her weight.

The man, who says he’s a personal trainer, even went as far as to say it was just “constructive criticism.”

In a video that has since been received more than two million views, she claims the man commented: “You would be perfect if you lost like seven pounds. You’re very pretty.”

To which she replied: “What?”

He continued: “Oh I’m sorry, I hope you don’t take offence to that. I’m a personal trainer.”

She replied: “Oh ok, phew! I was offended until I knew you had the credentials to body-shame me.”

When he asked if “we’re good,” she said: “Of course, you were just giving constructive criticism.”

“Exactly! Glad we’re on the same page,” he apparently replied.

She wasn’t letting him get away with it that easy as she claims to have said: “You would be perfect if you were a different person.”

When he said: “Excuse me?” she added: “Don’t worry, I’m a therapist. I have the credentials to recognise poor character.”

But that didn’t stop him from continuing to chat her up.

Since then the video has racked up more than 480,000 likes and 3,500 comments from people who were both horrified by his rude remark and impressed with Katie’s comeback.

One person joked: “I just witnessed a murder.”

Another commented: “What an absolute TOOL.”

A third put: “I’d likely never date a personal trainer regardless.”

“Credentials to recognise bad character,” wrote one viewer, alongside laughing emojis, “wasn’t ready for that one lol.”

Whilst someone else said: “Men get so mad when you match their energy.”
