A SHY bachelor was stunned when a Tinder profile was set up to help him bag a girlfriend – by his gran.
Unlucky-in-love Scott Lefever, 28, had no idea matchmaker nan Trina Lazarus, 82, had created the account to help him find love.
When she showed the barman it described him as “untidy” and a useless cook – and sold his only strong-point as making a cup of tea.
The brazenly honest profile read: “Hi, I’m Trina, Scott’s nan.
“He has been single near-on two years now and I think he needs my help, so I’ve set him up on here to help him get a girlfriend.
“He’s 28, no kids, a lovely grandson, very untidy, needs a girlfriend who can cook unless you fancy beans on toast.
“He is a very hard worker and is a fantastic tea maker, loves his film and TV, not a sporty boy but does love a walk.
“His favourite meal is a Chinese takeaway, well that’s all, if you want to know any more swipe right.”
Despite initially being embarrassed Scott re-posted the link on Facebook and received 26 matches in five days.
Scott, of Brentwood, Essex, said: “I was a bit annoyed off when I found out, but I quickly saw the funny side.
This is the first time my Nan has done anything like this she is always telling me, and I just couldn’t believe it.
“It was some of the trash about me being untidy I thought was a bit harsh but she means well.
“I’ve got 26 matches now since Wednesday, I haven’t messaged them all but I have text a couple.
“There’s no dates yet, I have just been saying hello to see what happens.
“She is always telling me to get a girlfriend, I have been single for two years now.
“I just enjoy going out rather than settling down, I have been on dates but I haven’t really had anything serious.
“I just get bored quickly and I haven’t found the right one yet.
“I like girls with a natural look, someone who has a laugh, family orientated and up for a good time.
“This is the first time my Nan has done anything like this she is always telling me, and I just couldn’t believe it.”
Mischievous Trina, who lives with Scott, admits creating the profile in the hope of getting some great-grandkids out of any matches.
The former beauty queen said: “I am a bit harsh and say what he is like but if a girl doesn’t like that it is up to her.
“I didn’t think there would be a good response, I was just trying to wind him up really.
“He’s 28 now, I want to see him settle down before I go. He’s a nice guy and is always looking after me, he’s a good lad deep down.
“Another great-grandchild would be nice, I’ve already got five grandkids and three great-grandchildren.
“He’s got a good heart and I’d want a nice woman for him who wouldn’t take advantage of him."
A Tinder spokeswoman said: “Nana’s truly do know best and know your true self better than anyone, so who better than your grandma to help you set up your Tinder profile.”
