A one-armed woman has been lauded online for having one of the best Tinder profiles of all time.

The good-humoured 21-year-old lists her job on the dating app as "arms dealer" and describes herself as "hands down the best catch on Tinder".

Rating her attributes, she issues her face "10/10," "body 9/10," "personality 20/10" and "arms 1/2".

Lauren, from San Diego, lost her arm a year ago in a moped accident and told Buzzfeed the story behind her catchy profile.

"I was going pretty fast on a moped and lost control of it, and hit the median in the road. I flew off and hit a sign and it sliced my arm off. I stayed conscious the whole time."

She was saved by a policeman but initially struggled coming to terms with her injury.

"But then I started telling the jokes, and it's kind of helped".

Admiration and marriage proposals have flooded in - despite her saying of her Tinder profile, "I got home pretty drunk, and I don't remember typing it up really."

"I just woke up to someone DM'ing me a Reddit post asking if it was me, and I was like damn, I guess it is."

Her new-found internet fame has had another beneficial spinoff - bringing funds to her GoFundMe page, with which she is hoping to raise US$50,000 for a prosthetic arm.

The page reads, "I created this because of how incredibly expensive bionic arms are, especially if you don't have very good health insurance."

"I've been thinking about this a lot lately and how significantly it would improve my life. I am not ashamed of my injury and I've always embraced it but I'd like to have an arm back, any arm."
