A man in San Francisco desperately searching for a girlfriend has created a program that led to him going on 105 dates in four months.
Sebastian Stadil is a software engineer who designed a program that automatically responded to every nearby female on the dating app ‘Tinder’ by swiping right. According to KRON in San Francisco, he reached out to thousands of women in the area in just a matter of months.
Stadil said the effort was all for his search for love, “So I’ve reached an embarrassingly large number of people. I think the application swiped right on about 200,000 people. Sent a little bit more than 10,000 messages. 150 first dates.”
If someone didn’t reply to him, the program automatically sent another message up to seven times. Over the four months, Stadil says he went on more than 50 second dates, 17 third dates, and spent about $6,000.
Stadil said he took a liking to four ladies, but it didn’t work out. He also said this experience did not leave him empty handed, “And what I noticed is Asian-Americans tend to swipe right on me more frequently then the general population which means that I have some certain appeal there.”
