A man pretending to be a 24-year-old everything bagel on Tinder proved that food is truly the way to anyone’s heart by getting more than 1,000 matches. His Tinder profile, EverythingBagel, offers a simple and romantic bio: “I can be your [sic] everything.”
For the uninitiated, an everything bagel typically contains salt, onion, garlic, and poppy, caraway, and sesame seeds. It should be noted, however, that the true everything bagel, which must contain as close to “everything” as possible, is one that might be exclusive to New York City and Long Island: the egg everything bagel.
Despite this flaw, Tinder’s EverythingBagel has had enough success, at least in terms of first impressions, to become an Internet dating legend. You might find him on other dating apps, too, but Tinder is his main haunt. In an interview with Motherboard, the creator of EverythingBagel spoke about what it’s like to experience the world as a beloved breakfast item.
For starters, he’s 25 in real life and single, but he doesn’t have a Tinder account for himself.
On occasion, he does end up revealing his true identity to girls when the conversation is interesting enough to do away with the disguise. For now, EverythingBagel is content to let his bagel avatar lead the way. “Even if I wanted to meet someone from the Internet, I feel like I probably have a better chance as the bagel,” he told Motherboard. “It breaks the ice.”
