Amber Smith from Iowa went viral when she filmed a TikTok of herself giving a Powerpoint presentation about all the dates she went on in 2022.
“I cried over two of these men, which coincidentally is the same number of parking tickets that I got over these men,” she said in her video.
She also added up the amount of money she spent on all these bad dates, which came to $368.36. “I wish I had not calculated this number as what could I have done with this money? Literally anything would have been better.”
On the show, Amber told Jennifer Hudson that she met a variety of men on dating apps and social media sites. They would do all sorts of activities, including walking around the aisles at Target.
“What did you do on a date at Target?” said a dumbfounded JHud.
Amber says she’s looking for someone who is “hard working.” She would also like “someone who is ambitious, who likes to travel, someone with a personality.”
As for what she definitely does not want in a partner, she said, “I don’t want someone who lives with his parents.” It seems that’s a common dating no-no, according to the studio audience fully clapping in agreement.
Another dating don’t? “If he doesn’t own a couch, which was a problem more often than I’d like to admit,” said Amber. “If you’re dating me, I’d like you to have a couch.”
Finally, Amber wants to date someone proactive. “If he complains about his situation, his job, where he lives, but he’s not making any steps to change that — that was important to me.”
