A woman has been shamed after claiming her good looks negatively affect her dating life.
Yesterday, Jenna Thompson, a bikini model, appeared on a ‘This Morning’ segment entitled: ‘I’m too good looking to find love’.
“I think I intimidate nice guys” she explained in conversation with presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.
“I seem to attract guys who are only after one thing. People who think they’ll have a go and just want hook ups.
“No one is looking for anyone that serious.”
Later in the segment, she said: “I am really choosy but why not?
“I’m not going to settle. I’ve got two little children so I can’t settle. I have to be picky. I have to find the right person.”
Despite the fact Thompson, a mother of two, has a professional modelling career, viewers branded Thompson “self obsessed” and “vain” for claiming she was attractive, poking holes in her appearance.
Others said she had an “over inflated ego” and was “delusional”.

I mean, she’s definitely very pretty, but she’s hardly this unobtainable, ethereal, once in a lifetime beauty. I think it’s more a case of too vain to find love. #ThisMorning

However, not everyone wanted to tear Thompson down. Some weighed in to praise her confidence, encouraging her attitude of self praise.

Loving this woman on #ThisMorning Don’t change yourself for anyone. Don’t shrink to fit inside someone else’s box. I’m sure she’ll get a tearing down from other women but this is the attitude we need to encourage. 💪

Another viewer was surprised by how much they warmed to Thompson.
I wanted to hate the woman who thought she was too good looking to find love but I actually quite warmed to her as she came across really well #thismorning

Thompson isn’t the first woman to be publicly shamed for claiming she’s attractive.
Brick became a household name after the piece went viral, and was trolled by tens of thousands of people on Twitter.
While praising your own attractiveness may still prove a taboo, women are increasingly realising a need for self love.
