Student Creates Hilarious Tinder Presentation On Pros And Cons Of Dating Her

A student's Tinder profile has gone viral after she uploaded a hilariously honest presentation about herself.

Natalie Palmer created the pitch revealing the pros and cons to dating her, after experiencing 40 'atrocious' dates in nine months.

The 23-year-old admitted needing to be cuddled most of the time, being 'obsessed' with pizza, the fact she's 'OCD' house proud and will rock a face mask on date number five.

Natalie, from Caerphilly, South Wales, said: "I'm 2019's Bridget Jones because I always end up going home alone.

"I've done about 40 dates in nine months - they've all been atrocious.

"I was just lying in bed looking through my phone and wanted to do something creative with my profile as I'd not been getting matches.

"Originality is pretty low these days, so many girls have Snapchat animal filters on their photos and boring bios, so I thought I'd do a presentation through Snapchat.

"I took me over an hour thinking of pros and cons, getting the photos and putting it all together as I couldn't stop laughing."

Access to bio science student Natalie hopes the presentation will attract someone who will click with her personality rather than just on looks.

Natalie said: "In terms of my ideal man I've got no preference, I don't even go for looks.

"As long as they get my sense of humour and sarcasm I think we would get on fine."

Listed first in her bio were positive traits that Natalie hoped bachelors would find attractive and capture their attention before moving onto the cons.

Natalie said: "I've got a thing about hoovering twice a day and mopping - I'm really house proud - that's wife material.

"It's nice to walk into a nice fresh-smelling house and just be happy about it. It's also a sense of stress relief for me, I just get the hoover out and within five minutes I've calmed myself down."

Up next were details of her previous employment to show potential matches her strong work ethic and qualities they may find attractive.

Natalie said: "As soon as they see you're a student or you're young they assume you're either jobless or just studying so I thought I'd put my work from when I was 18 and explain all that in detail there.

"It also shows a caring and trusting side, you've got to be nice and have some good qualities if you do that line of work.

"I'd love to be a paramedic, seeing how loving and caring they are in their jobs has inspired me and I'm hoping to study paramedic science at university in the future."

Unlucky-in-love Natalie revealed that the way to her heart was not through fine dining, but pizza.

Natalie said: "Most guys ask where your favourite place to eat is and I'm really fussy with food. I don't like Indian, I don't like steak I just like pizza.

"It's easier to just rock up on a date and eat pizza - meatballs and sweetcorn is my favourite topping."

Finally she revealed her love of the outdoors including walking, running and hiking.

On the next slide Natalie detailed her cons including liking cuddles, red wine and lacking common sense.

Natalie said: "I like being cuddled and have been dumped twice for being too affectionate.

"I love red wine but apparently that is a bad flaw because when you drink too much of it and you start spewing on your second date it's not really attractive.

"I'm quite intelligent but I do lack common sense. About eight months ago I adopted a snow leopard and I genuinely thought they were going to send one in the post.

"In the end I only had a stuffed animal and an adoption certificate. I cried for days, I really thought I was having this pet.

"My step dad joked if I was going to ring a zoo for a cage, but I didn't think that far ahead."

Singleton Natalie also included details of her living arrangements and revealed she doesn't own her own house.

Natalie said: "One of the main things men write on Tinder is 'I own my own house'. I think it's a bit arrogant - well done for having a good credit rating but some of us don't which is why I wrote that."

The penultimate slide shows the 'reality' of dating Natalie including a picture of her wearing a charcoal face mask and a red wine emoji.

Natalie said: "I adore face masks that's the reality of us women these days, it's what we look like almost every night so you've got to throw in a realistic picture of what it's going to look like after date five.

"I think the first three dates you're shy, getting to know each other, while date four/five is when you start being comfortable around one another.

"If someone was going to come over to my house on date five that's what I'd look like."

The final slide shows Natalie's head superimposed onto the infamous picture of Susan Boyle wearing her dressing gown and waving to the cameras.

Natalie said: "That's me waving them off to work in the morning. I don't have an actual photo of me doing that so I had to improvise.

"My ideal man is funny, caring, laid back, open minded and adventurous with some ambition.

"The kind of man I think I'll attract are ones with the most sense of humour.

"Genuine guys will see that although it's funny there's a realistic side to it too and see that I'm a laugh.

"Hopefully this presentation gets me the man of my dreams."

Since posting the presentation, Natalie has been inundated with messages from impressed matches, with one even telling her: "The most interesting Tinder profile I've ever seen."
