I could tell the first time I saw this girls Tinder profile that she was going to go viral. She is making the best out of a bad situation and using humor to move right along.
I bet she has been swarmed with Tinder date requests as well.
Well According to UniLad: A woman who lost her right arm in an moped accident has been sprinkling the Internet with her quick wit and sense of humour.
Lauren, posted the best Tinder bio ever, taking the piss out of her own arm, or lack there of, melting the hearts of many.
Posting on the dating app, the 21-year-old from San Diego said her occupation was an ‘arms dealer’ while saying she was ‘hands down the best catch on Tinder’.
The cherry on top was at the end when she said her personality was 20/10, her face was 10/10, and ‘arms ‘1/2’. Overnight the screenshot of her bio went viral, with people praising her spirit.
Her Instagram and Twitter are also full of hilarious self-deprecation.
One tweet read:
I was in the ocean and this lil kids like ‘what happened to ur arm’ and I told him it was a shark and he ran out and has yet to get back in.
Lauren told Buzzfeed News:
I was going pretty fast on a moped and lost control of it, and I hit the median in the road.
I flew off and hit a sign and it sliced my arm off. I stayed conscious the whole time.
Lauren said that social media has played a big part in her recovery:
For a while, I wasn’t okay with the jokes. But then I started telling the jokes, and it’s kind of helped.
Lauren is trying to raise $50k for a prosthetic arm, so you can donate on her GoFundMe page. Where she wrote: As most of you know I lost my arm exactly a year ago, and around that time I also created this campaign for a prosthetic. For some background for people who know nothing about me or my injury, my name is Lauren and I lost my arm up to my shoulder June 29th 2016 in a moped accident.
I’ll link a video explaining the accident. I created this because of how incredibly expensive bionic arms are, especially if you don’t have very good health insurance. I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately and how significantly it would improve my life.
I am not ashamed of my injury and i’ve always embraced it but I’d like to have an arm back, any arm. Now i know the goal is a lot but I’m young and have time, so any amount donated is extremely helpful and means a lot to me. I love you all and appreciate every dollar and share this may receive
