Woman's Facebook Search For Man She Kissed On Night Out Ends Abruptly When His Girlfriend Responds

After meeting the man of her dreams on a night out, Pippa McKinney decided to use the power of social media to try and track him down.

McKinney, 22, met Matt in a club in Manchester but was upset at the thought that she'd taken his number down wrongly.

She uploaded a photo of the guy in question with the caption: "Met this guy last night absolutely stunning, took his number down wrong but would love to get to see him again! He's from Whythenshaw and is called Matt, help anyone haha??"

Social media - being the efficient little tool it is - was soon whipped up into a frenzy. And it wasn't long before the post had gone viral.

But, much to McKinney's dismay, she soon found out that her potential love interest wasn't such a catch after all.

In fact Matt, who she'd shared a smooch with, had a girlfriend.

McKinney wrote in a comment afterwards that she "couldn't believe it". She added that if she'd known he was in a relationship she wouldn't have "gone there", but he'd told her he was single.

It was Matt's girlfriend Emily, though, who stole the show with her positivity - after all, it must've been pretty crappy to see this unfold on Facebook.

Holding her head high, she wrote on the photo: "Feel like joining in with the comments, just wanna say a quick thank you to Pippa for informing me.

"Ay at least 1 good thing came out of this.... I get to save money this Christmas & don't have to buy him any prezzies!!

Winner winner!"

You go girl.
