Creating an online dating profile can be a tricky business, so one man decided to leave the difficult task up to Google’s autocomplete feature.
Aaron Gillies, 28, started filling out his profile and then went with whatever the search engine predicted he was going to write, coming up with results such as: ‘My name is in French’.

London-based comedy writer Aaron Giles, 28, allowed Google’s autocomplete feature to fill out his online dating profile with hilarious results. The profile has attracted 10,000 likes since he posted it on Twitter
‘I used Google autocomplete to write a dating profile and it may be the best dating profile ever,’ he explained.
He started by filling in the ‘My Name Is’ category. But as he typed Aaron, Google somehow predicted that he was trying to write ‘In French’.
It filled out his age as ‘in seconds’ and thought that he lived ‘in a shed’.
Aaron tried to describe his physique, but ended up with: My body type is ‘ready’.
He was then required to add what kind of person he was looking for, and the first thing the search engine predicted sounded fairly reasonable.
Treyen Udall used the same technique only to find that Google predicted his turn-ons as ‘hugging and passing out’ and said that his body was ‘dead’ when he attempted to describe his physique
‘I’m looking for someone to share in an adventure,’ it said.
However, it all went a little awry from there. It thought Aaron was looking for someone who ‘enjoys listening to sad music and has two thumbs’.
Aaron then had to allow Google to describe a few things he likes doing
‘I enjoy long walks on the beach,’ it wrote. ‘I like turtles. I like dogs and I like to party.’
Although slightly quirky, it probably wouldn’t raise too many eyebrows. However, the next part would be sure to cause alarm if he used it on a real dating profile.
Empress Nero also gave it a shot and described the results as ‘weird’. According to Google she was ‘born on a phone call’ and her name is ‘the best way.’
‘My ideal partner would be someone who is addicted to alcohol, who can fix my car and thinks the earth is flat,’ it said.
Things continued in the same bizarre vein when it came to turn-ons.
Google predicted that Aaron wanted to write that he couldn’t get enough of ‘hugging and depression’.
He was also required to list his ‘turn-offs’, which ended up as ‘being blocked on WhatsApp’ and ‘being found in human form’.
Aaron was so please with his experiment that he joked to his 57,4000 followers that he was available to write dating profiles for a fee of £5,000 an hour.
Fans shared their appreciation for his efforts with Ali telling him: ‘This is brilliant. We are definitely a match – admires BOTH thumbs’.
Arthaey Angosii put autocomplete to the test too and ended up appealing for a partner who is ‘the best resort’ as well as declaring that his name and body are both ‘a good sign.’
Joe Johnston urged him not to give up on his quest for love, saying: ‘There is a gal/guy/robot for you.’
Mrs Khandar declared that she would ‘totally go out with the man who sent me this profile.’
And Tivali agreed, saying: ‘I think your success in finding your match is imminent.’
Scyrene said he’d be interested in daying Aaron, tweeting: ‘Hugs and depression? We could be a match.’
Victor von Doomed agreed, saying: ‘My turn-ons are hugging and depression too.’
Aaron received lots of compliments from Twitter users who joked that they would make a perfect match because they’re also keen on hugs and depression
But they had competition from Razzly who said: ‘Where do I meet this guy? We are like a total match.’
However, admirers are set to be disappointed as Aaron is in fact married to Lex, 31. Another of his posts previously swept the internet when he shared a long list of strange things that make her cry.
Nonetheless, James said Aaron’s dating profile was the funniest thing he’d read all day, while Fuschiii described it as ‘epic’.
Other followers decided to share their own efforts at making dating profiles, using the same process.
People found Aaron’s post hilarious with Molly Rafferty declaring she was dying with laughter and Princess Peach saying she was crying
Treyen Udall tried it out and came up with: ‘My name is close to the bathroom. My age is a good time. I live in a hella nice house. I was born in the morning.’
Rather alarmingly, Google predicted that he wanted to then write: ‘My body is dead. I am looking for someone to be heartbroken, who enjoys a little bit of a sudden death and has a lot of people.’
As Treyen attempted to talk about his hobbies, things remained equally bizarre.
‘I enjoy the rest of the conchords, I like the little gems. I like doing well and I like to hear,’ the search engine autofilled.
Its description of his dream woman was also far off the mark: ‘A person who is the best way to go to bed, who can help you with the BBQ chips and who thinks that the other day I had a dream.’
Aaaron told social media fans he was available for profile writing at a charge of £5000 an hour
It went on to described his turn-ons as ‘hugging and passing out’ and his turn-offs as ‘being used to be a quick one and being a part of the conchords all the time.’
Arthaey Angosii’s results came out equally strange.
‘My name is a good sign,’ his profile read. ‘My age of the most important thing. I live in a few days.’
It said that he was born in the US, but things quickly went wrong again.
My ideal partner would be someone who is addicted to alcohol, who can fix my car and thinks the earth is flat.
‘My body is a good sign,’ it continued. ‘I am looking for someone to do with the entire idea, who enjoys a few days and has a lot of the LGBT folks.’
He seemed to be trying to write something about his favourite sport, which Google turned into: ‘I enjoy the games and root for them. I like the smaller and less shiny New York City.’
When asked what he was looking for in a potential partner, things got even more bizarre.
‘A person who is the best retort, who can also be jerks and who thinks that the back of the most important thing is?’
The final lines were no less confusing, reading: ‘My turn-ons are you going to be a good band and I will be a slam dunk. My turn-offs are you going to be a good band and I will be a slam dunk.’
Empress Nero also put the trick to the test with equally bewildering results.
‘My name is the best way,’ Google decided for her. ‘My age is this month. I was born on a phone call. My body is not going back.’
Describing her social life also turned into something very confusing.
‘I enjoy a great day and school. I like collecting people. I like to know if it’s the best way to create something and I like to make sure you can use this backdoor.’
Describing her ideal partner ended up with a Star Wars reference, but was otherwise unintelligible.
‘My ideal partner would be a person who has been the best Jedi who can be proud of the other side of souls and who thinks that this is a page about the opinions of the ones that I suck,’ it read.
Hugging came up again, when listing turn-ons but the other one mentioned was ‘cry for you’.
Google concluded: ‘My turn-offs are being used to make the best way for you and being in a couple more days of this year.’
