Lauren is a 20-year-old from San Diego. About a year ago she lost her arm in a moped accident, which is a lot to deal with.Rather than mope or wallow, she has an incredibly positive attitude and a great sense of humor. Take a look at her tweets:


That’s cool, but it is just Twitter. Then there’s her Tinder bio. Let’s be honest…dating apps are tricky. People are often judgy and rude. Trying to navigate them when you’re also trying to cope after a major accident seems nearly impossible, right? Wrong. Lauren skipped over any potential awkwardness and made a hilarious bio that addresses the arm situation right away. It’s sure to make any potential suitors laugh:

She told Buzzfeed that the profile has already gotten a great response. She said people say to her, “Oh, I feel bad for laughing,’ And I’m like, ‘No! I think it’s funny…I made it!”

This girl is our hero.
