Sometimes the unimaginable happens in life, and all we have control over is how we react to it. And Lauren, a 20-year-old from San Diego who lost her arm in a moped accident, is a glowing example.
Lauren created the most perfect, arm-themed Tinder profile, taking complete ownership of her experience — and it’s rightfully going viral.
Lauren explained her approach to online dating (and her incredibly hilarious social media presence) to Buzzfeed.com, saying, “For a while, I wasn’t okay with the jokes. But then I started telling the jokes, and it’s kind of helped.”
She has used her charm and wit to amass a pretty significant following online…and her Tinder profile is absolute FIRE.
I can already tell she has the best personality by her job title pic.twitter.com/uyK7DJCN0M— meme god (@MEMESG0D) August 8, 2017
SEE WHAT WE MEAN?
And of course, she is in very high demand (come on, brains, beauty, AND killer sense of humor?).

Lauren also graces her Twitter followers with regular thoughts, musings, and general hilarity, and we’re beyond here for it. Take a look:

We truly love how Lauren approaches life with so much badass humor — because again, so much of life isn’t about what happens — it’s who we become after something happens. Losing a limb is traumatic (Lauren said she was “fully conscious” during the incident and remembers asking her paramedic if she would die), but we are SO FREAKING INSPIRED by her current reality.
Lauren, we raise our glasses to you! Please never stop gracing us with your hilarious thoughts and commentary.
