Sometimes when you get something, you never expected, you might just ignore it. Like matching on a dating app with Ben Afleck, sounds like a prank and exactly what Nivine Jay, a social media influencer thought.
Giving little attention to the opportunity Nivine has unmatched the profile with the name Ben Afleck.
What happened next, an instant regret after the real Ben Affleck sent her an Instagram video message.
In a video posted to TikTok on Monday, Nivine Jay shared the video she says Affleck, 48, sent to her on Instagram, writing, "Thinking of the time I matched with Ben Affleck on raya and thought it was fake so I unmatched him and he sent me a video on Instagram."
It is unclear when the alleged exchange took place.
The video then cut to Affleck, 48, in the video message the actress and author says he sent her where he is heard saying, "Nivine, why did you unmatch me? It's me."
While Affleck has remained silent on his dating life and relationships, he did make a light-hearted post about his personal life in 2019 after reports that he was using Raya.
"HA, you got me. I'm dating," Affleck wrote in an instagram post at the time, before opening up about a cause he cared about.
"But let's be serious for a moment and talk about something that is actually important. I have been in recovery for over a year and part of that is helping out others. @themidnightmission is an incredible organization that helps those in need with housing, training, development and recovery," he added.
In January, Affleck and Knives Out star Ana de Armas amicably split after nearly a year of dating. The two actors were first linked together in early 2020 while filming the upcoming thriller Deep Water.
Last Friday, the Justice League star visited his former fiancée Jennifer Lopez's L.A. home few days after J Lo has called it quits with the retired baseball player Alex Rodriguez.
It seems in 2021, with his dad bod and salt pepper look, he is ready to explore everything to find a match that doesn't unmatch him.
