This Woman Lost Both Of Her Legs But Not Her Dark Sense Of Humor, Shows It Off On Tinder

26-year old Mandy Horvath, a double amputee from Colorado, is back on Tinder, and her army of admirers is growing. A huge part of what makes people swipe right when they see Mandy’s dating profile is her wicked sense of humor. And to her credit, Mandy has perfectly tailored it to her positive personality as well.

“I am a full-time banquet chef at the Briarhurst Manor Estate in Manitou Springs, under the direction of our new head chef, Sean Evans,” she told Bored Panda. “I’m also a full-time student at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, online for now.”

Referring to herself as the bionic bachelorette, Mandy jokingly said that her dating life is truly sparse. “[But] humor aside, I’m picky. It’s gonna take a special kind of man to tie me down,” she added. “You know, dating with double leg amputation is interesting, sometimes you have to draw a picture. Let people know it’s okay to joke, and I encourage it.”

“In 2014, I was involved in an incident where I was struck by a locomotive, severing my legs just above the knee.” The doctors initially thought she had tried to kill herself, and by the time she could explain the situation, it was too late to test her for date rape drugs. At first, Mandy avoided online dating after her accident because she felt too self-conscious but eventually decided to give it a try after watching a video about dating as a disabled woman on YouTube.

“I don’t really like to think of myself as disabled, just different. Dark humor has always been a release for me, and I like that I can make someone else’s day better with a funny joke.”

“I legitimately enjoy getting on to troll and trade jokes [on the app], and I’ve made quite a few friends all across the county. But I have had a couple of weird experiences as well. I would encourage everyone to be careful about any social app. ‘Till someone holds my gaze, I think I’ll dub myself the bionic bachelorette.”

“Smile, remember to smell the roses. Follow me on Instagram if you like. I crawl around and do cool stuff sometimes, and it’s legit.”

Every day, more and more people are falling in love with Mandy

She is very witty and outwardly beautiful by society's standards, at least from the waist up (not my standards, mind you). I'm curious if someone with the same physical disability would garner similar responses if she were just as witty but with less outward beauty (by current society standards). I won't fault you for the down vote. I'm not trying to be mean in any way, it's just something crossed my mind and I'd like to know how others feel about it.

This is true. I think the sass would be admired, but it probably wouldn't go viral.

Dude read your comment out loud to yourself. IF you still don't see it then you deserve all these comments and downvotes. You creep.
