Amputee Woman Fields 12 Marriage Proposals After Listing Herself as 'Arms Dealer' on Tinder
A San Diego woman's humor about her missing arm on her dating profile has led her to become a Tinder sensation.
Lauren, 21, lost her left arm in a moped accident a year ago, but that hasn't stopped her from creating a profile that puts her amputation on full display, along with this cheeky bio.
On her Tinder profile, she jokingly wrote she's “hands down the best catch on Tinder.”
She also stated that she is an “arms dealer” and rated her “arms 1/2” and “personality 20/10.”
The response from male suitors has been incredible and now she is inundated with thousands of date requests.
She has even had 12 marriage proposals.
“I figured it would be fun to make a profile and get some interesting messages,” she told Inside Edition. “It was really unexpected. I got a lot of compliments.”
The 21-year-old, who has a Twitter page called DuckFanAccount, has even become a mini-celebrity around town.
“My sister and I were at a restaurant and the waitress was like, ‘Oh my God, you are so brave,'" she said.
“They donated a big chunk," Lauren said. "They donated over $15,000, which is incredible."
Now that she's put herself out there, Lauren says she is not put off by any negative attention she may attract.
“I am totally comfortable with my body," she said. "People can say whatever they want to me. They can make jokes, they can make fun of me and I am still going to be myself and be happy."
