Skip to comments.A very ugly break-up! Man splits from Woman he met on website for the aesthetically challenged
Posted on 06/02/2011 12:11:04 PM PDT by woofie
The self-confessed 'ugly' couple who got engaged through Britain's first dating agency for the 'aesthetically challenged' have split up. Tom Clifford and Janine Walker, who shared a mutual love of junk food and TV dinners, parted company last month following a whirlwind online romance.
The couple hit the headlines last October after meeting on www.theuglybugball.com.
They became engaged after only four dates and less than a month after joining the site.
Mr Clifford, 37, and Miss Walker, 32, were originally planning a winter wedding near their respective homes in Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire, but postponed the date and have now separated. Friends believe Mr Clifford - a carpet fitter who has a 'face that makes children cry' - may have got cold feet.
Jessie Bridge, 31, who has known Miss Walker since childhood, said: 'All I'll say is that Janine and Tom have very definitely broken up. 'It wouldn't be right for me to divulge information about the split, but I will say that Tom has been acting edgy about wedding plans for some time.
'Objectively-speaking, it may well be that the thought of marriage pushed him over the edge.'
Mr Clifford, who has been single since 1998, spotted Miss Walker on the site in August 2010.
His first email to her read: 'Dear Janine, Just seen your beautiful face on The Ugly Bug Ball and would love to meet up. You live near me, so this shouldn't be a problem.

Ugly ducklings: Tom Clifford and Janine Walker were planning to marry in December after meeting on Britain's first dating agency for ugly people but had postponed the wedding till this summer
She looks exactly like a very thin woman I know! Wow!
They’re a bit overweight - but I’d not think of either as ugly.
The Romantic in me is saddened by this...I had such hopes for this couple
The thing is, the guy can't do any better unless he wins the lottery; heck, he already lost LIFE'S lottery. I say "marry her".
Dude should cut his hair. He looks like a lesbian.
I truly don’t see either one of them as ugly.
Heavy, yes, but not ugly.
Somewhere, somehow, there is a tiny subgenre of online porn that would LOVE to employ them.
They look totally normal, a couple of haircuts and a change of clothes and they are just an overweight couple.
They both need a haircut and a lot of time on the treadmill.
They’d shape up OK.
..and lose the man-boobs.
She looks like Pjork.
I say they’re guilty.
They’re not ugly. Could use a few styling pointers possibly and lose a few pounds, but ugly? No.
“She looks like Pjork.”
You win, sir!
The website should be renamed as www.meetafuglyone.com
We need Laz for the final determination.
seriously I agree ...not Brad Pitt or Jolie but not ugly ....Maybe they need to work on their self esteems
Same here. Fat, but not ugly. I was expecting something like Waxman or Wasserman...
Which one is Tom?
It’s people like this that make me look good, and I appreciate it.
Big deal. You want ugly? Go to Wal-Mart on a hot day.
First glance I thought it was two women!
Either that or they should be given their own sitcom.
The next household god and goddess.
Huh.........I was expecting something like Waxman, but these two don’t look ugly to me. Goodness, what makes people think so poorly of themselves that they join a website for ugly people?
You beat me to it!
(You have those Waxman nightmares too, where he’s chasing you thru a fog, begging for a kiss?).
That looks like a woman on the left...and the one on the right is wearing a very cheap wig.....
And Nancy Pelosi, with the Michael Jackson nose.
Now, they should go to the buguglyball.com site.
Weiner ain't much pretty, either.
“Big deal. You want ugly? Go to Wal-Mart on a hot day.”
or try a hot muggy 2 AM when the STRANGE come out.
eek, git the shotgun Ma
Laz would hit it.
If these two consider themselves to be ugly, they both need to get mirrors that didn’t start out in a fun house.
Ugly, no. Not by a long stretch.
I was expecting them to be uglier. They’re kind of unattractive, but not trolls living under a bridge.
Looks like the fat guy from ‘Lost’ just cell-divisioned into a man and a woman.
I’ve been on FR too long. The only thing I could think of when I read the title was... Lazamataz.
My guess is that they tried to have sex, and it wouldn’t reach.
Where the heck is Laz anyway?
Haven’t noticed him posting since his ‘doomsday’ post.
He’s not ugly, he’s just Welsh and very overweight. She could be ok if she changed her hairstyle.
He got banned for posting something OTT to a troll, last week, I think. I can see if I can find the thread if you're interested.
Yes, please try to find the post.
Kinda liked Laz. He was funny.
I’m not finding the thread. Sorry. The post was pulled. Laz made an extreme statement as a way of illustrating a point. I didn’t see the actual post, just other people’s responses to it. Maybe somebody else who was on the thread can find it. Hope it’s just a temporary banning. Laz is an institution around here.
The guy is becoming a frequent flyer...
Thanks for looking for the post.
Yes, I also hope his ban was temporary.
Bah. On a good day I’m still uglier than that.
