Tinder can be a cruel and unforgiving place for men like me.

If you too are a solidly average looking bloke (if I had to rate myself I’d say I was a six) you’ve got your work cut out to stand out in an increasingly competitive field of well preened, and frankly, gorgeous, males.

This task is made all the more difficult when the only pictures you have of yourself are when you were off your face at uni or dressed up as a leprechaun on St. Paddy’s Day.

If that’s the case, you better hope your bio is banging.

My bio is painfully unimaginative considering I’m a ‘writer’ and using words is my job, but this next guy’s, well, his puts mine to shame.

Joe from Virginia, also known as Imgur user , shared a harrowing story about a life-threatening injury he recently sustained.

He was crushed by 3000 pounds of hay which left him wheelchair bound with a crushed pelvis.

By his own admission, it’s a miracle it didn’t kill him.

But where most of us would mope about and feel sorry for ourselves, Joe managed to stay positive and keep his search for ‘the one’ very much alive and kicking with a hilarious Tinder bio.

Check it out below:

“2 1500lb hay bales tumbled down and crushed me against the ground” Joe says.

“I should be dead, I still can’t wrap my mind around how I survived. It was pure luck.”

“I have a long road to recovery ahead of me.. And it’s gonna be a painful, but that’s okay.”

“Because I’m still alive, breathing, and no longer crushed under 3000lbs of hay, so I welcome any and all pain. Cause pain is a feeling, a feeling I shouldn’t be feeling anymore.but I am, cause I’m alive!!”

“And I still got that tinder game.”

He says:

“Sup ladies, I’m Joe, I just got crushed by 3000 pounds. Got a broken pelvis but still dtf. I do have a catheter. I don’t wanna be ‘one of those guys’ who lies about his catheter status. The catheter may be an issue but greats minds do great things. Bedbound, you literally have to do all the work… I probably can’t get off… Or get hard. But hey; great minds. Anyway… here are UVA medical center if you wanna smash.”

Wayyyyy more game than I’ve ever had or will have.

Needless to say people were loving his profile:

With a sense of humour like that we don’t think he’ll have much too much trouble finding a suitor.

Good work, Joe.
