Aline is a 18-year-old freshman at Oswego University in upstate New York. She's used Tinder, but told BuzzFeed News she's never taken it that seriously.

Her account, she said, had some jokes on it and she would use it to talk to people and see who she matched with for fun.

But she never really tried that hard to find a date.

“I feel like people just make a Tinder just for an ego boost,” she said.

About five or six months ago, Aline got into a relationship and deleted her Tinder. However, she missed having something to mess around on when she was bored.

“[I thought] how can I go on Tinder and not cheat on my boyfriend,” she said.

Recently, she was hanging out with her cousin when she had an idea for a new Tinder account. Instead of using it to find a date, she could use it to sell something. Her cousin graciously offered her a lamp she was trying to unload.

She created a profile for “lamp,” said she was 25 and wrote “not looking for hookups, just to sell my lamp. Serious inquiries only.”

To her surprise, she got a ton of responses, so many that the app eventually crashed her phone. And the men responding to her did the absolute most — like this guy who didn’t seem to get he was propositioning a lamp.

“You're not like other girls, lamp.”

Anyway, someone was even willing to buy the lamp for $125! However, Aline said the buyer asked to meet in person — and there’s been no response when she declined.
