Linscott has transformed app-based dating to a March Madness-style competition, perfect for those who are looking to put the thought back into their thumbing.
The search generated some hilarious results, filling out his name as “in French”, his age as “in seconds” and his turn-ons as “hugging and depression”.
He also attempted to describe his ideal partner, with the autocomplete saying “a person who is addicted to alcohol, who can fix my car and who thinks the earth is flat.” He said: “I used Google autocomplete to write a dating profile and it may be the best dating profile ever.” Since posting the outcome on his Twitter, Technically Ron, the post has been retweeted by 18,000 Twitter users, and liked by 24,000.
