This guy's Tinder profile is without a doubt the greatest of all time


It takes a lot to stand out from the crowd on Tinder. Unless you have a dog, or a friend who has a dog which you can steal for a couple of photos so you can pretend it’s your dog, or are really good looking and have a great personality (lol yeah OK).

But Jared, 19, from the University of Florida doesn’t have a dog, and has created what you have to admit is the greatest Tinder profile of all time. It’s a 21st Century work of art. You could print it out on a couple of pages of A4, hang it in the Tate and charge me £20 a pop to look at it and I’d go 13 times.

Here it comes, in its full, unabridged genius: 

Jared 1

A story in four parts: part one

Jared 2

Part two...

Jared 3

Part three...

Jared 4

And part four

It’s fucking perfect, isn’t it? It’s one of those things that you look at and immediately feel annoyed because it’s so good and you wish you’d thought of it first. Jared has the whole of Tinder wrapped around his little finger, and he knows it.

His profile was uncovered by @rllynatalia on Twitter, who uploaded his pictures with the caption “how is tinder free”. It’s already been retweeted well over 10,000 times and has more than 20,000 likes.

What makes it so good is how deliberately cheesy it is. It’s ridiculous, and it works. His face in the final picture, the terrible chat up line in his bio, the handwriting – Jared has the handwriting of a Hugh Grant character back when everybody still fancied Hugh Grant. You couldn’t swipe left on this profile – it is unswipeleftable. Even if you didn’t fancy him, you’d have to swipe right out of sheer respect.

So yeah, nice one Jared, hope you enjoy your three dates-a-day for the rest of eternity.
