"ASSignment. Lol, I love it. I'd also love to see what it said," another added.
A third wrote: "The fact he asked how many pages and if he needs references why was I shook he actually did it? Lol."
Someone else who shared how she met her fiance in a similar way added: "This is actually very similar to how my relationship started and now we're engaged."
In a second video, Thoma noted that her Hinge match's little essay was not only "original" but humorous and that he sent it to her within two hours after she asked for it on the app.
"I did give him a B and did give him my phone number," Thoma said as she shared part of the report.
The match spoke about his former relationships and what he is looking for on the dating app.
Thoma further said that he could have had better grammar, to which some people agreed. Others even suggested that she edit his paper and give it back to him.
