Dating is hard, y’all, and all our fancy new technology seems to make things more complicated instead of easier. Wouldn’t it be nice to go back to a simpler time, when you never had a problem so complicated your grandmama couldn’t solve it?

Well, maybe you can. At least that’s what Jessie Jolles, and Tracy Soren, two New York-based comedians, decided when they turned Jolles’ Tinder account over to Soren’s grandmother. Bubbie, as you might imagine, had some strong opinions.

If you don’t have time to watch the whole video, here are some helpful tips straight from the bubbie:

  • Avoid tattoos. Tattoos are a horror.
  • No beards. Beards hide the face.
  • Weed is OK.

So basically, Cheech is a yes, Chong is a no.

Obviously, this bubbie is a pretty sharp. Must be where her granddaughter gets it, as there’s some really smart/funny stuff going on over at the YouTube channel she shares with her friend.  If nothing else, they make some solid points about a certain scene from The Fault in Our Stars.
