I Posed As The Nittany Lion On Tinder…And This Is What Happened

Cuffing season is upon us, folks.

It’s time to find a cutie and snuggle in for the long winter ahead of us. I mean, come on! Isn’t that why we’re on these dating apps in the first place? To find a life-long companion and totally not a one-time hookup?

It came to my attention that there is one person…or mascot, I should say…that may be lost in the relationship shuffle: The Nittany Lion.

I couldn’t just let the Symbol of Our Best be lonely during this time! The Nittany Lion deserves love, so I decided to help our pal out and create a Tinder profile.

Here are some of the best (and worst!) messages the Nittany Lion received on Tinder last week:

And also this…*blushes*

I was asked this hard hitting question:

Of course, the Nittany Lion had his doubters…

At least they thought I was cute, though.

Despite my haters, I had my fans.

I had this…interesting…conversation:

Of course, I got to finally try out some good pickup lines, too.

And finally, one couldn’t just hit up the Nittany Lion without dropping this classic chant.

Have you had a run-in with the Symbol of Our Best on the worst app known to man? How would you slide into the Nittany Lion’s DMs? Tell us in the comments!
