For Christmas, this thoughtful sister played matchmaker.

In a tweet posted Dec. 28, Megan Steffen from Chicago, Illinois, showed off screenshots of the Tinder account and PowerPoint of potential dates she made as a gift for her sister Emily.

“I’m a cheap skate, so for Christmas I’m getting my sister a tinder date,” Steffen explained in the Tinder bio she made on her sister’s behalf. “I’m looking for a brother-in-law, ya’ll, so NO HOOKUPS!! Em is a great gal with an alright personality, loves photography, and is a killer barista. Her best quality is being my sister. SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY!”

The post picked up viral steam on Twitter Wednesday, with people impressed and even jealous of the thoughtful gift.



Steffen said she matched with more than 85 men—and many were amused by her matchmaking project.

“Some asked if the account was really run by me, others volunteered to be wrapped and put under the Christmas tree, and most just found it really funny in general,” Steffen told Mashable.

She then interviewed 39 of the guys and created a PowerPoint with details about the most eligible suitors. A friend of Emily’s stumbled upon the profile and sent her a screenshot before Christmas rolled around, but it didn’t make the gift any less special.

Steffen told Mashable that her sister has a top choice, and they’re expected to meet in the next few days.

“From there, I hope they go on many dates, fall in love, get married, have a baby, and name the baby after me,” she joked.
