This happened as the couple’s date was just getting started, and led to a brutal end.
The dater shared a screenshot of the conversation, which showed Seth had remarked she looked ‘bigger than he thought’ but that her family was ‘loaded’.

Kersten first shared the screenshot of her conversation with Seth, captioning it ‘the reality of dating in 2020’.
At first, it looked like any other text exchange, with Seth asking for directions to Kersten’s house.

She then replied ‘I’ll pray for ya bud.’

In a subsequent video, Kersten updated her followers on what had really happened during the date.
She explained Seth sent her the message 10 minutes into their date while they were driving off.
‘I look at him, I’m like: “You didn’t mean to send me that, did you?”,’ she said.

‘I just told him how immature he was and how shallow he was and I knew that was why he was still single,’ she said in the video.
She revealed the date ended in silence as Seth dropped her off close to her house. But Kersten was able to make light of the rude text and awkward moment.
‘I don’t expect myself to be a twig, I have some thighs, that’s ok, I love that about myself,’ she said.
She said Seth’s opinion did not affect how she saw herself.
‘If anything it just let me know what I deserve even more,’ she said.
The TikToker’s followers expressed her sympathy after she shared the interaction, saying it was for the best that Seth had shown his true colors.
