With the rise of online dating apps like Tinder, it’s easier to go out on dates nowadays. Whereas before, those who were in search of romantic relationships were often skeptical and anxious when it comes to finally meeting their dates in person.
A handful of people are even putting a spin on dating – just like this model who dared show up to a Tinder meetup wearing nothing but body paint.
It was Jen Seidel, a body painter from the US, who laid the idea on the table. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Jen decided to send one of her models, Joy Jewell, on a Tinder date for a fun, little experiment.
And off she went. Joy went to the mall wearing a large coat and high boots on top of her nude painted body. She was feeling a bit anxious while waiting for her date, but was able to exude confidence as soon as he arrived.

When they finally met, the guy could be seen giving a side glance to her ‘outfit’. He decided to not mention anything, though, and only uttered the words: “You look great”. Afterwards, the two went for coffee, and Joy saw this as an opportunity to remove her coat and finally reveal the body paint.
He then complimented her outfit, and followed it up with an honest observation.
“I am literally just saying what’s on my mind. I thought you was naked for a couple seconds.”
Thankfully, Joy knew exactly what to do. She played it off coolly, and answered with:
“Yeah, well I don’t come to the mall naked on the first date. So, let’s get that straight.”
When they headed off to the second level, a group of young girls almost gave away Joy’s secret. One of them shouted, “That’s bodypainted!” But the two daters just ignored it – or at least, they pretended to.
While Joy and her date were having a conversation, the group of young girls came up to them to ask for Joy’s Instagram account. When they found out that Joy was a model, the ladies asked for a groufie with Joy.

All of a sudden, one of them said:
“How do you just walk around in paint and like not being worried about it?”
Still unwilling to give away her secret, Joy laughed it off and denied that she was naked.
“I actually have clothes on. Can’t you see?”
When the group left, the guy seemed even more suspicious of his date. It was only when they went outdoors, where it happened to be raining, that he finally found out the truth.
In the end, the man was totally cool about it, and even expressed his intentions for a second date – but this time Joy should be fully clothed.

When asked for an assessment of their date, the guy said:
“It went great actually, except towards the end when we tried to hug, but that didn’t work out. Maybe [we will have] a second date when she got a sweater on.”
