An Australian woman's experience on a dating app is going viral after revealing her psychologist 'liked' her and tried to chat her up, then threaten to sue her.
The Byron Bay woman opened up Hinge one day to find a familiar-looking man had tried to match with her, when she opened up his profile she realized quickly it was her psychologist.
The psychologist messaged her first, "Hey 😍 I feel like we've matched before 😅". To which the woman responded. "Aren't you my psych?"
However, after establishing they knew each other in a personal way, the psychologist continued the conversation with, "Ohh- that's why you look familiar - sorry - I deal with lots of clients and it's hard to keep up. How have you been?"
The woman did not respond to her psychologist's advances. As a client of his, she felt vulnerable because the psychologist knew deeply personal information about her, including her address.
Feeling violated and not knowing what to do, the woman turned to a closed woman's Facebook group to seek advice.

Under the advice of others, the woman reported her psychologist to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. Many agreed that the psychologist's actions were unethical.
