When Hadiya Roderique created her Tinder profile, the 36-year-old lawyer and Ph D student was told she'd be "bombarded" by messages from eager men on the online dating app.
She'd put together what she thought was a witty profile, accompanied by several attractive photos.
It seemed like an easy way to dive back into the dating pool after leaving a relationship.
