A single woman has gone on a rant about her “grim” dating life after a string of failed romances.
Bronte Schofield said she didn’t have much luck with the dating pool in Perth so she decided to switch her location on Hinge to another city to boost her chances of getting matched with the perfect guy.

But just months after matching with a guy from Melbourne, she started seeing the red flags.
“I’m done. I’m done with men. I’m done with dating apps. I’m done,” Bronte said in her TikTok video.
“My dating life sucks. It actually sucks… So obviously, I’m not shy to the fact that I like to set my Hinge to a different state. I’ve done it for a long time because the dating pool in Perth is grim.
“I think to myself, why not set it to another state and see what happens?”

She met a man from Melbourne – and the pair hit it off instantly.
“Things were going really well… we were chatting daily… But I still could feel it in my heart that I wasn’t 100 per cent ready to date yet,” Bronte explained, revealing how her last romance didn’t end well.
“I take a long time to get over things, especially after what happened to me.”
‘Read the room’
Just months into texting, Bronte said the man started complimenting her using the one word she loathed.
“There’s one thing that I absolutely cannot stand more than anything, like, I mean anything. If you haven’t met me, don’t call me ‘sexy’. Gross, man, ” she said.
“The other thing, if I’m slowly starting to detach, read the room. So obviously I could feel myself kind of detaching. I was like, is that the sexy talk? And just all of that, which is giving me the ick.”

The pair started talking about meeting up in person but Bronte noticed the man made zero effort to travel to her.
“So he kept saying, ‘When you come to Melbourne’, ‘When you come to see me’… And I’m going, ‘Don’t you mean when you come to see me?’” she said.
“Why would I, after the amount of failed relationships and failed situationships and even just failed meetings with men, would I get myself on the plane and put myself in that position?
”I can’t do this… Keep in mind we hadn’t met, so I was like, I don’t really owe this guy anything. I don’t know whether that’s like something that I need to work on, but if I had have met him, I would have the conversation.
“He lives in Melbourne, I live in Perth, I just didn’t want to have that conversation with him. Simple as that.”
Bronte said she stopped responding to the man’s last four messages.
“When he replied to my Instagram Stories, I kept it quite simple, arms length kind of situation,” she said.
After weeks of radio silence, the man texted her out of the blue to say he was travelling to her city to meet her.
“I get a message from him and he’s like, ‘I’m coming to Perth as a layover on my way home from work, I’m seeing you’,” Bronte said.
“After I hadn’t replied to his last four messages… Bro, that’s not effort. That’s just sheer convenience for you. After I haven’t spoken to you for weeks.”
She said sarcastically: ‘Yeah, sure, king. Let’s meet up…’
