A stupid beardy hipster from where I used to live has asked the internet to fund his states so he can find true love.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/11357755/Single-guy-looking-for-love-asks-the-internet-to-pay-for-his-dates.html

A singleton looking to find the woman of his dreams is fundraising online to help pay for his dates.

Tom Packer wants to raise £1,300 through crowdfunding site Indiegogo to fund the 13 dates he believes will help him find true love.

The bearded bartender, from Norwich, describes himself as a ‘hopeless romantic’, who once took to the streets of London with mistletoe strapped to his head.
Surprisingly, that didn’t work and now the 26-year-old hopes his latest idea will improve his love life.



“There's a popular theory, which states that on average it takes 13 dates to find love. A crazy optimist that I am, I would love to put this theory to the test,” he explains.

“People of the internet and fellow romantics, I would like to take this opportunity to ask for your help in my quest for love.”
He is offering signed photos of his face for a tenner, £500 for a date and a poem, or you can pledge £1,000 for the pleasure of going to Paris with Tom.

What do you think of this? Would you fund one of his dates? What lives in that beard? What do you think of his theory?

To be fair for me this is extra funny. The guy is well known around Norwich for being a bit of a beg and texting girls 8 years his junior. So it's just quite hilarious.

Also there's this article which just takes the piss out of him even more http://metro.co.uk/2015/01/21/this-misguided-hipster-is-trying-to-crowdfund-money-for-13-dates-5030246/

I'd pay £150 to kick him in the balls before and after each of his dates.

EDIT: Looking at that thing about going to London with mistletoe taped to his head... I think he should be referred to from now on as Rapey Tom.

What a jabroni.

His main problem is he looks like a Mumford and Son.

He tried to chat up my ex girlfriend once at the station when I was stood next to her and it was so awkward.

Him: "Hey, I love your bag where did you get it?"

Her: "..."

Me: "It's my bag..."

He thought you were #bitchmade and he tried his luck.

Turns out he was right.
