Sometimes you just have to do the work yourself!
A woman has the internet in trouble after handing out “dating resumes” to men she was interested in, claiming online dating hasn’t brought any results.
Emily Zgoda, 27, from San Diego, California, couldn’t find love on Hinge, Tinder or Bumble – so she decided to make physical copies of her dating app profiles instead.
Zgoda documents her attempts, posts videos of her handing out the “resumes” on TikTok, and gains more than 10 million views of her viral videos, which thousands of people follow with bated breath to see if she’s “the one”. of her finds process.
“She’s her own wingman,” she captioned the first video posted last month, showing her handing out her profile: a picture of herself with information on the back typically found on an online dating profile are.
On her profile she had a picture of herself holding two mini Irish style top hats across her chest and when she turned the picture over there was information about herself written on the back showing her love for St Patrick’s Day described.
She added a “green flag” she looks for in a man is that he shares her love for “St. Patty’s Day” and that her most irrational fear is “being sick on St. Patty’s Day.” She also listed her name, age, and phone number so her potential love could easily contact her for a date.
TikTok followers loved the innovative plan, and thousands of users commented on the “brilliant” idea.
“This is literally the best thing on the web,” explained one user. “You will literally meet your soulmate when you do this.”
“You’re a fucking icon, I’m crying,” wrote another.
Zgoda hasn’t found her soulmate yet and released part 12 of her dating series this week as she dropped her profile on her latest crush.
“Had my eye on this baby for a while,” she wrote, updating followers to say he texted her.
She also updated followers on how it’s been going with the men she’s given resumes to, saying some are in relationships and some are too young, but she’s still working on it.
Zgoda said she decided to pursue her new method of finding love after failing to connect with online dates.
“I’ve been on a few hinge dates here and there, [and] Most of them dated great guys, just not my guy,” she told BuzzFeed.
“It’s a harsh reality that some of our generation are relying on dating apps rather than meeting each other organically and I was always hoping to meet someone in person,” she continued, saying most interactions have been positive.
“I figured that would be a good strategy to get to the point and meet someone in the wild.”
