Online dating is hard. Especially when it comes to summing up who you are in 500 characters or fewer.
Lauren from San Diego appears to have done it.
The twenty-year-old lost her right arm as a result of a moped accident.
Speaking to BuzzFeed News, she said:
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.
A police officer who showed up soon after was tourniquet trained, and saved her life.
Adjusting to the loss was difficult, but after a while she started telling jokes about it. “It kind of helped,” she said.
After a night of drinking, she posted the mother of all Tinder bios (because all good Tinder bios happen when drunk). Here goes:
