Dating websites have changed the way people find potential mates these days. However, some use them just for fun and attention, without serious intentions.

22-year-old Jessica-May Giles from Lincoln, England, used Tinder for a month, but no candidates seemed suitable. However, everything changed when a man named Mitch took the phrase in her profile “just want to find a future husband” a bit too seriously.

The user asked Jessica-May how he could “apply for this position” and the girl jokingly asked him to send her a
covering letter of why you think you’d be suitable for the role of husband.
Giles was not expecting a “husband application letter” in her mailbox from Mitch the next day!

Here's his letter in all its glory:
Dear Miss Giles!
I wish to apply for the position of future husband, currently being advertised on your profile. Please find my suitability statement below:
As you may guess I have currently zero experience in the official husband industry, but I believe the knowledge and skills built up during my lifetime make me the right/perfect candidate for the role.
From reading your role requirements it's easy to see that I have covered many of the items and have more than suitable experience for your needs.
Firstly, you will be telling me to sit still most of the time as I am always on the move thinking of fun activities to do. Following a long day of being mature yet silly I am more than confident I will meet your needs of being a good cuddler for a cosy night in with the sweets and films. (Top tea maker too) 'I can be supportive in all ways and I'll be there to spot you on the weights. Compliments will come with ease, but you will have to take my word on the affectionate, good hair play and not have skinny thighs will be proved all at the same time if you get my draft. And finally the fact I have written this means I can handle/go along with the banter. To touch on your last requirement, as you are aware I have just driven back from down south with no serious collisions covers being the driver to different cities.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hopefully progressing to the telephone interview with you and discussing my application further.
Yours sincerely, Mitch.

Jessica-May says she didn’t think that the young man would actually send her a cover letter. But after reading the resume, she found Mitch to be very sweet and funny.
I’m going to Turkey at the end of the week and we will meet up when I get back

Seems like Mitch's sense of humour paid off!
