Woman with one arm 'hands down the best catch on Tinder'
A woman with one arm has won over the internet thanks to her hilarious Tinder bio.
Lauren, a 21-year-old from San Diego, lost her arm a year ago in a moped accident.
"I was going pretty fast on a moped and lost control of it, and I hit the median in the road," she told BuzzFeed News. "I flew off and hit a sign and it sliced my arm off. I stayed conscious the whole time."
For a while she struggled to come to terms with her new life, "but then I started telling the jokes, and it's kind of helped".
And "the jokes" she's talking about? Take a look for yourself:

Lauren's "humerus" outlook on life reached new levels recently after she posted a Tinder bio listing her occupation as "arms dealer".
"Hands down the best catch on Tinder," it read. "Face 10/10, body 9/10, personality 20/10, arms 1/2."
The internet went nuts for it, with screenshots quickly going viral on Reddit and Twitter.

It also hasn't hindered her Tinder chances at all, with admiration - and proposals - pouring in from all sides.

Dating offers and marriage proposals aside, Lauren's internet fame has had another even more beneficial spinoff for the amputee - bringing attention to her GoFundMe page, with which she is hoping to raise US$50,000 for a prosthetic arm.
Lauren's GoFundMe reads: "I created this because of how incredibly expensive bionic arms are, especially if you don't have very good health insurance."
"I've been thinking about this a lot lately and how significantly it would improve my life. I am not ashamed of my injury and i've always embraced it but I'd like to have an arm back, any arm."
