Everyone can give up and go home now, because Lauren, a 20-year-old woman from San Diego, just won Tinder with the most perfect bio. But first, some background: Lauren lost her arm a year ago in an accident. "I was going pretty fast on a moped and lost control of it, and I hit the median in the road," Lauren told BuzzFeed News. "I flew off and hit a sign and it sliced my arm off. I stayed conscious the whole time." According to Lauren, a police officer found her and pretty much saved her life. "I remember I asked the cop, 'Hey, am I gonna die?' and he said, 'No, you'll be fine,'" she said.
The accident must have been tough for Lauren to deal with at first, but she's proven herself to be a strong survivor with an even stronger sense of humor. She's not shy about making jokes at her own expense on social media.

Lauren says being open about her accident has helped others come to terms with similar things that have happened to them. "I have never really hid it," she said. "People don’t see that very often, so a lot of people DM me to tell me it’s really helpful to them, people who are also missing limbs or are disabled."
And last week, Lauren created a Tinder account. Just like the rest of us, she wanted an original and witty bio, but she really hit it out of the park with this one. She wanted to "address the elephant in the room," and she gets straight to the point.

"I got home pretty drunk, and I don't remember typing it up really," she recalled, somehow coming across even more chill and down to earth. "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.'"
Some people feel uncomfortable laughing at her jokes, but Lauren encouraged it. “People always respond like, 'Oh, I feel bad for laughing,'" she said. "And I'm like, 'No! I think it’s funny—I made it!'"
It seems like she wasn’t lying about her 20/10 personality. And although she’s certainly easy on the eyes, the fact that so many people are falling head over heels because of her bio proves it's not always about looks.
