Woman creates stamp to mark men she fancies in club to ‘skip small talk’
Eager singleton Taylah Munro decided she would be ‘skipping small talk in 2021’ by creating a stamp that she uses to brand ‘good looking guys’ on nights out with her contact details
A woman has created a stamp to mark men she fancies in clubs – so that they can ‘skip small talk’.
Eager singleton Taylah Munro, 27, hasn’t had a boyfriend in years but hates using dating apps, so decided to take matters into her own hands.
She created a stamp, and when she sees a guy she likes the look of she brands them with her contact details – and many men are keen to get in contact after.
Sometimes Taylah doesn’t see anyone ‘stamp worthy’, but she said the £20 custom stamp was well worth the money so she could ‘skip small talk in 2021’.
Taylah, from Newham, East London, said: “I thought it would be funny and different.
“No one has time to be going up to people like, ‘hey, you okay? What’s your phone number?’ Sometimes people walk past you and you never see them again.
“I was going to a festival and I was thinking ‘surely there’s going to be loads of good looking guys there’. I was thinking if I just get a stamp, it would be like ‘stamp and go’.”
Viral footage shows Taylah walking over to her crush through the crowd and cheekily stamping her social media handle on his hand, with the message ‘MY TYPE vanillatrilla1 DM me’.
After posting a video online, the clip attracted more than 1.4million views and 159,000 likes – with TikTok users praising her unique attempt to find Mr Right.
However she’s also been inundated by hundreds of desperate men who are claiming she’s stamped them with the ‘MY TYPE’ brand in a bid to get a date – when in fact she has never even met them.
Taylah said: “I went to the festival and didn’t see anyone that was worthy of a stamp and didn’t end up using it. But I went out that night and the boy in the video is actually the only person that I stamped.
“I could walk past someone in the street and think ‘oh, he’s good looking’, but that guy was the only person in the club who really caught my eye and I thought ‘wow, he’s really stunning’.
“At first when I stamped him, he was really confused. He was like ‘am I being kicked out the club or something?’ I was like ‘no, look at the stamp’. He just smiled and said ‘your type? What’s your name?’
“After that we exchanged contacts and he bought me a drink. He was actually really nice.
“Even though I made the stamp, I see the funny side of it but I’m not specifically going out looking for a boyfriend.
“If it happens it happens and I’m having fun along the way.”
After sharing her purchase on her friends’ group chat, she claims they all thought it was the ‘funniest idea’ she’d ever had – cheering her on.
Taylah said: “I told my close friends, my group chat, as soon as I ordered it.
“I was like ‘girls, you’re going to die at what I’ve done’. I sent them the order confirmation.
“They were like ‘this is the funniest idea you’ve ever had. We’re so excited to see how this pans out’.
“I’m quite outgoing and do these random funny things anyway, so they obviously found it funny, but they said ‘this is so typical of you’.
“I’m trying something new. I’ve been single for years. I’ve obviously dated but there hasn’t been someone who I’ve called my boyfriend in a few years.
“I can’t do dating apps. I need to meet people in person.”
