Finding the right person can be difficult. Campus is full of eligible single people ready to get cuffed. But whether we like to admit it or not, looks do play a significant role in finding someone. That’s why UW Sophomore, Jerry Perkins developed a new method of finding love. The Misnomer had the opportunity to speak to Jerry about his quest for human connection.
“So basically I was on all the apps, Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, even Christian Mingle—and I haven’t been to church in over a decade! The issue is that even though there were a lot of hot people, it’s hard to start a conversation and show them how great I am when we never match. So, I started talking to girls in my class. The issue is there’s sometimes hundreds of girls in my lecture. I know it’s not PC to say anymore, but some of them are fugly! I don’t have time in lecture to look at every single girl to see if they’re hot or not! So I got the bright idea to look at Canvas over on the People tab. A bunch of girls set themselves as their profile pic, but the issue is Canvas makes the picture so tiny. Even when I zoom in, it’s not enough. That’s when genius striked! I visited my grandma for the weekend and before I left, I took her magnifying glass she uses for reading. After I got home I logged onto Canvas and started looking. I started making a mental note of the hot ones and next time I was in lecture I sat next to them. I pulled the ol’ ‘forgot my pencil’ schtick to start up conversation and the rest is history.”
The Madison Misnomer then asked if Jerry ever went on a date with any of the women from his classes.
“Well not yet, but this one hottie did invite me to the class GroupMe, so I’m almost there.”
