In a move that combines our love for cheap, Swedish-made furniture, and our addiction to the fast-paced world of digital hook-up apps, this group of friends went to IKEA to shoot their Tinder profile pictures amongst the various settings of affordable and practical domestic solutions, and, in doing so, declared themselves romantic geniuses and the most eligible bachelors on the entire Internet.
It’s a bold statement, we know, but consider what these photos tell us about Imgur user Keventure’s merry band of furniture-borowing friends and we guarantee you’ll be swiping right:
Firstly, the images prove the guys have great senses of humour, or, at the very least, that one of them has a great sense of humour and the rest are good at following creative direction. Swiping that right, for sure.
They also demonstrate basic table manners—though I’m sure this young man’s mother would remind him that a gentleman removes his hat at the table. Still, swipe it right.
An ability to read (upside down, even), AND pull off the difficult look of ankle socks with sneakers (bonus points for the backwards flat brim). ‘To the right, to the right!’
Notice how the biceps play a tertiary role to a creative and pensive nature. Swipe left, then Google if you can ‘unswipe’ someone you accidentally swiped the wrong way.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, they demonstrate a level of commitment far above that of many of their bathroom-selfie-taking Tinder competition. These guys are ‘doers.’ You know how hard it is to get out to IKEA? Parking is a chore. And, let’s face it, the place is a damned zoo, a human zoo with meatballs at the end. Delicious, delicious meatballs that we hope these innovative bros indulged in. God knows they earned them.
