A New York woman played cupid for her grandmother, finding the older woman a boyfriend on a dating app from over a thousand miles away.

Carli Costello, 29, is happily married, but she recently shelled out $60 for a one-month subscription to Match.com.

She signed up as her own grandmother, creating a profile and messaging men to help her grandma find love.

She’s sent the pest picks to grandma, who lives in Florida, via text, and ultimately set her up with a man whom she is now happily dating.

Carli documented her matchmaking efforts in a new TikTok video this week.

‘POV: your grandma wants to find a man so you download all the dating apps and find her one and get to watch them fall in love and now they’re living their best life together,’ she said.

She explained that she downloaded Tinder, which is free, but also paid $60 for Match.com, likely figuring it was a better bet for older men.

Though her grandma told her she was ‘crazy’ for paying, the results spoke for themselves.

Carli made a profile with her grandmother’s photos, which she shared with her via text.

‘We’re gonna find you a man!!!’ she said. ‘Now you get your pick of the litter!’

Carli also sent her grandmother screenshots of men’s profiles over text message, while grandma sent her feedback.

…’OK that sounds good, he looks pretty good,’ grandma answered.

Next thing, Carlie shared a photo of her grandma and the man in question, showing the two posing together outside with their arms around one another, grandma with a huge smile on her face.

While it’s unclear how long they have been dating, the pair do seem to like each other quite a bit.
