If you’ve ever used Tinder, you may know that terrible feeling when you spot someone awesome on the dating app, spend 10 minutes stalking their profile, and then accidentally swipe left instead of right. (For those of you who aren’t big on the dating app scene, left means “no” and right means “yes.” Most people accept this crushing defeat and move on with their lives. But not everyone. A guy named Hayden emailed every Claudia at Missouri State University to find the Claudia he had accidentally swiped left on. And the best part of it all? He actually wound up finding her!
According to her profile, she’s 18 and goes to Missouri State University. That’s about all the intel Hayden had on her, but he managed to put it to good use. He literally sent every single Claudia at Missouri State University an email explaining his predicament, saying, “I made a rookie mistake on Tinder. I accidentally swiped left on Claudia’s profile (left is bad) and I really wanted to swipe right.”
From there, he gave them some information on Claudia’s profile from what he could remember and offered to take her out for donuts. Cute.
Against all odds, the real Claudia came across the email and stepped forward on Twitter. She tweeted, “It’s me. I win,” and even though there’s no telling if the two are actually going on that donut date, the internet couldn’t be happier for them.
