Bikini model Jenna Thompson claims she is ‘too good looking’ to find love but admits she ‘intimidate
Model Jenna Thompson feels she has been unlucky in love because of her looks. Jenna, a bikini model, says she is ‘too good looking’ and only attracts men ‘who are after one thing’.
The mum-of-two put her troubles down to dating apps as everything is at face value. She said: ‘It’s impossible. It’s really shallow.
People get a kick out of how many swipes they get which narrows down any nice people. ‘I think I intimidate guys.
Nice guys. I attract guys who only want one thing or people who think they will just have a shot and don’t want someone that serious.’
Turning to her own dating life, the 36-year-old detailed some ‘serious disasters’ including a blind date who turned out to be a traffic warden she had argued with over a parking ticket he issued her with earlier in the day.
Jenna, from Essex, had also dated a man for a time who then confessed he was married. ‘He told me face to face,’ Jenna said.
‘It was cold and wet on the day and he slipped and fell over chasing after me as I walked away.

‘He was terrified his wife would find out because they call the next of kin. I had to take him to the hospital because he knocked himself out.’

I like heavily tattooed guys who look after themselves.
‘I just need someone who is able to connect with me on a deeper level. I don’t like small talk. Tatts are normally quite deep and artistic.’
But despite her struggles, and an appearance on Blind Date, Jenna is determined to find romance.
She said: ‘I’m not gonna give up on love I just need to keep looking. I think we need a new way of dating. ‘Maybe bring back speed dating but not so fast.’
This Morning airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.
