We're all aware that the Tinder 2017 is a lot less exciting than when it first sprung onto our iPhone screens a few years back, but no matter how depressing internet dating gets you'd wouldn't think to contact your lawyer about it. Would you?

This is the course of action Australian Darlene Daggett is taking after spending $150,000 (£115,000) signing up for "CEO level" membership of exclusive dating service Kelleher International.

The 62-year-old former QVC worker and divorced mother of four was left suitably hacked off after being offered up a succession of disappointing dates, or so reads the documents filed in a federal court.

Daggett's lawyer M. Kelly Tillery's lawsuit writes that, "Kelleher's 'highly screened' matches for Daggett included men who were married, mentally unstable, physically ill, pathological liars, serial Lotharios, stalkers, convicted felons, and men unwilling or unable to travel and/or the subject of professional sanctions."

Sounds familiar.

One of the more promising dates took her on a romantic trip to Panama and Costa Rica...and then set sail on a round the world trip with his ex the day after they got home.

To soften the blow the dating service introduced her to a man waiting for his terminally ill wife to die, and a womaniser who spent Christmas and Thanksgiving at her house before dumping her without explanation.

Kelleher International's chief executive Amber Kelleher-Andrews said in a statement defending the company that, "It doesn't always work out."

No shit.
