When Fiona Bloom needed an air conditioner installed in her Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, apartment three weeks ago, she went on Tinder.

The 47-year-old, who has been dating in NYC for the past 20 years, decided to put the app to use after being repeatedly disappointed by the city’s dating pool. “I’ve tried speed dating and all the dating apps, but every time I put my real age, all I get are idiots and losers,” Bloom, a publicist, tells The Post. “I figured, why not make them useful and have them help me around the house?”

“Men are hard-wired to feel strong and be a provider,” she says, noting she’s also used this method to hitch a ride to the Hamptons. “I don’t feel guilty using them for a little help.”

For some, using Tinder as a one-stop shop for handymen has the added bonus of leading to romance.

“I sent him a selfie of me sweating in my room, and he came over like a knight in shining armor,” says Lori of her now-boyfriend, Andrew, 28, whom she met on Tinder in 2014 when she was looking for someone to install her air conditioner. “I think men really like a damsel in distress,” adds Lori, a 24-year-old Greenpoint, Brooklyn-based social media editor who asked not to use her last name for professional reasons.

My vagina is crying with this evo-psych/hard wired bullshit.

    Yep, these are the types of women that give us ALL a bad name. Men take note of their opportunistic nature, and then generalize that all women play the “damsel in distress”, and/or use the app, online dating, or IRL encounters to manipulate men into doing “projects” around the house. This is not the first time I heard of this…or seen this done. My aunt’s ex-neighbor used to date various men…based on what home renovation or improvement she was looking to complete next! Seriously.

    That photo is gold and, in these dark times, we all needed that so very, very much. The next time a man gets a box of cereal off the top shelf at the grocery store for my short ass, I’m going to be sure to write all about it to brag about how my womanliness appealed to his caveman instincts. You’ve come a long way, baby! They should have re-titled this, “I’d Rather Act Like A Helpless Incompetent Than Pay A Handyman $100 Plus Tip”.

      You nailed it BTownGirl … And so will I next time a guy helps MY short ass at the home improvement store get crap for my next farm project…

      A reminder of a great line I read somewhere – when a guy rescues a damsel in distress, all he ends up with is a distressed damsel. (And less $ I guess)

      And that chick pic on that messy bed in the cell block … Still laughing/gagging… Guys? Still looking at legs….

      Whatever raises her flag…. I could see a news story – chick strangled in hot apt … By spurned Tinder dude in a tool belt …

    Meh, I don’t know. If both parties are willing to exchange chores for sex, then whatever. That’s none of my business.

    I am bemused. A woman wants to date a man who can fix things around the house? How novel. Just as novel as a man who would like to have a woman non-adverse to shopping, cooking, and keeping the house relatively clean.

    How old -fashioned when presumably everyone can pay strangers to do those domestic chores for them. :P

    Yeah, but how tall was Andrew?

      Andrew is probably short, overweight and homely. He has successfully found love online by shooting “within his league,” as we’re told: tall, overweight, or otherwise homely women his own age, or women 15+ years older. If he had more money, he would be able to purchase a younger, better-looking woman he could then accuse of being a gold digging whore for not loving his inner greatness.

    Women with pictures like this appear on dating sites with a frequency of about I’d say five percent. The pictures are online dating site porn. They aim to present eye candy to men, showing leg, heels, and some modeled pose to say “I’m cool.”

    I’m sure they get a lot of responses. Waste of time, waste of space. Many of these same women are on these sites for years. There’s a reason why. Any man who has met one on a live date can explain it. Any man who hit them up with no response, the experience can be summed up in the quoted NYPost story, where the following outcome was left out in the above post:

    “After he came over, opened her window and set up her AC, she said thank you — and promptly kicked him out. He later messaged her to go on a proper date, but she never replied and doesn’t regret it.”

    Read the story.

    Sorry, but this woman is not the worst. It’ the guy who responds. B. T. Barun is often credited with the quote “There’s a sucker born every minute”.

    If you are on a dating site, please do so if you are looking to date. You want a handyman, please look elsewhere. Fair is fair.

    Golly gee, must be doing something wrong. It’s generally the men here asking ME for help. Maybe because I show up, do the job right. This chick complains about attracting losers and posts a pic like that?! Sister, learn to install your own da$&@” air conditioner. I agree with a previous commenter; dirty shoes on the (unmade) bed?? Ewwww! Maybe because I run a farm.
