This is too good!

Lauren, a 21-year-old from San Diego, Calfornia who lost her arm in a moped accident a year ago, is going viral for her hilarious Tinder bio which shows her great sense of humour. She told Buzzfeed about the accident, and it's actually terrifying:

"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 was lucky, because a police officer with tourniquet training was one of the first on the scene and ended up saving her life. She now uses social media and humour as a way to cope, exhibit A:

"For a while, I wasn’t okay with the jokes... But then I started telling the jokes, and it’s kind of helped."

Now, screenshots of Lauren's Tinder profile have gone viral with the 21-year-old saying she wrote it "to address the elephant in the room that I was missing a limb."

"I got home pretty drunk, and I don't remember typing it up really... I just woke up to someone DM'ing me a Reddit post asking if it was me, and I was like damn, I guess it is."

Plenty of people took to Twitter saying how much they wanted to swipe right on her:

Lauren added:

"People always respond like, ‘Oh, I feel bad for laughing’... And I’m like, ‘No! I think it’s funny...I made it!’"

No doubt Lauren has a lot of first dates planned in the coming weeks!
