The user called Patrick had mistaken Rebecca for her friend and had the neck to request a date with the other woman pictured.

“Sorry I thought you were the other girl in the profile pic. Ask her can I have her number please,” he wrote in the series of messages Rebecca shared on Twitter.

The DCU student quickly dashed the hopes of the exceptionally rude man, and informed him that her friend in fact had a boyfriend.

“She actually has a boyfriend but thanks for the confidence boost," she said.

Speaking on this morning's Anton Savage Show Rebecca said: "It was funny. I wasn't really too offended. It wasn't a nice message to wake up on a Monday morning.

"But what do you say back to that?

"I think even if my friend was single she wouldn't even get in on that.

"It's not really excusable."
