The more technologically inclined we are, the crazier and more creative ideas we come up with to kill our boredom. With an app for almost anything and everything, realizing these ideas is made even easier in this day and age.

This Facebook user tried his luck on a dating app by using his fake profile (it was actually a photo of him as the opposite gender, all thanks to an app!) and got his profile blocked!

Like any other 25 year-old who’s single, Peter Pakonekham was just having fun using a face app with his friends. Since the app changes your features and shows you how you would look like as the opposite gender, Peter tried it out and was actually surprised that he was... pretty!

When a friend said that his edited photo would work well on a dating app, the Sushi server based in Colorado tried it out just for fun… to see if people really bought the fake photo.

Much to his surprise, he got over 20 matches in just 10 MINUTES!

“I’ve never gotten that on my own dating app. I just died,” he said.

We have to note that Peter did not misuse his profile, but instead, he read through the messages he received to see if there’s anything interesting that could come in handy for him to impress a girl in future and he told us he did get a few tips, though!

But all good fun must come to an end, right? In just a few days, Peter’s fake profile was blocked and we're guessing someone probably reported him for being too pretty!

What’s the craziest thing you’ve done when bored?
