Guy Sends Tinder Match 300-Word Letter Detailing Why He's Husband Material

When it comes to the world of dating, most people fall into one of two groups - those who reckon it's best to play it cool and those who think that showing some effort is the way to go.

One fella who definitely falls into the second camp is Mitchell, the man who sent a 300-word covering letter detailing why he should be considered as a potential date for a woman he matched with on Tinder. Yep, three hundred words.

The guy matched with Jessica-May Giles, 22, who has been on Tinder for a month. She says that so far she's only used it to chat to people, and thought that saying she was hoping to find 'a future husband' to her bio would be a bit of a laugh. She certainly didn't expect anyone to respond to it - but Mitchell did.

Jessica, from Lincoln, said: "I had only put that on my profile the day before, and I knew I'd get some banter from it so jumped at the chance when Mitchell asked how they could apply.

"I never thought he would actually send it, but when the email came through I thought it was hilarious - you've got to love a grafter!"

And this wasn't a half-arsed attempt at wooing Jessica, nope. Mitchell had clearly scoured her profile to find out her likes - weights, bunnies and sweets - and told her he shared them. He also told her he was a 'good cuddler', 'top tea maker' and 'good hair player'.

He also wrote, rather confidently: "From reading your role requirements it's easy to see that I have covered many of the items and have more than suitable experience for your needs."

Jessica added: "I loved the attention to detail in the letter, and how he knew exactly what to say.

"But my favourite part was the address and especially the postcode, which was 'HE4 RT.'

"It was laid out so professionally, and I loved how he included some of my requirements in there too and even put them in italics!"

And if you're wondering how it's all panned out for Mitchell, then let me tell you his efforts appear to have paid off.

"He clearly has good personality and banter to send that cover letter in the first place," Jessica said. "So, he'd be a laugh in person!

"I'm not on Tinder actively looking to date or for a relationship, and I haven't been on a date from there.

"I just find it funny to scroll through now and then and have chats with people - especially when they're funny.

"But when I'm back from holiday I don't see any harm in potentially going on a date with him and seeing what happens."

Nicely done.
