3DS Has The Potential To Find You A Partner

Posted by Orla Madden

Saves the awkwardness of meeting someone in person

Want to play games on your 3DS? That's so old-fashioned! Why not use it to find a boyfriend, or according to a ten year-old boy, a girlfriend.

That's right, young "Masterclaw 360" posted up on the Colors! 3D 'I need a girlfriend. Girls read description', with arrows pointing down towards the description box on the touch screen.

Funnily enough, someone actually responded to the post, but sadly the picture has since been removed from the Colors! online gallery, therefore the response is gone, too.

Valentine's Day is just on the horizon, time to load up the creative app and start posting similar pictures if you want some multiplayer action on this commercially loved-up day.

You can't be forever alone when you're 10 years old. I'm sure he'll find a girlfriend in a few years.

I was so going to ask if it was a slow news day, but other people beat me to it :-(

I am sad now.

Three Australians on the other side of the world complaining about a slow news day that has barely even begun in the U.K and Ireland where the site and its writers are based...

Guys, it's not a slow news day (this was posted at 9am UK time/early hours US), we just like posting stuff around Nintendo culture as well. Life doesn't always have to be so darn serious!

And I'm sure the young lad in question is just fine, I'm sure most have moments where they want a companion :)

I have this game, this is always on there, like a few every time I load it up. -.- They always get responses, although usually its girls looking for guys.
Seriously, some of these have made it to the best of the week before. >:[

Gamers need love too. My wife has gotten through 4 Zelda's, Tales of Symphonia, Arc Rise Fantasia, and is working on The Last Story.
She's a keeper. =)

People do this all the time on colors (watch out for pedo bear). It probably got removed because it wasn't artsy.

Funny little story.
The kid in question wouldn't be so keen on a girlfriend when she's fleecing him out of all of his money.

Isn't that the age where you still are saying "eww!!" to girls?

I don't bother with artwork that has mainly words on it. That goes for all those comic strips that people keep putting up.

This is one of the reasons why the Colors!3D community is annoying. It's still a pretty handy app though.

Whether you consider this as news or not, it's definitely an interesting post that I didn't mind reading!
The Colors 3D community is pretty much Hatena all over again. That isn't entirely negative, though, because Hatena still had a lot of awesome people who just wanted to post something cool or funny. Same case with Colors 3D, there are still a lot of neat people on there, you just have to dig for them. It's too bad that they don't have an indepth profile system, commenting interface, and search/page function. It can get a lot better, but it's still very handy.

Nice post!

Aw man, please don't give this kid attention. It's cute and everything, but soon the idea will catch on and Miiverse will be filled with people trying to hook up. Kind of like how one person told everyone how many "yeah"s he/she had, and suddenly everyone had to do it.

A bit strange to consider this news. As one who has spent a fair amount of time browsing Flipnote Studio and Colors 3D, these types of posts are incredibly common. Don't see why this one is any different.

What I want to know is will it help me land one of (or all of ;)) my Big Three: Rachel McAdams, Emma Stone, and Anne Hathaway (yeah, she's married... doesn't bother me ;))? If so, count me in. Otherwise: "Valentine's Day? BAH, HUMBUG!" :P

is this even news? i've seen this more than a million times, and it's showing up now? i know it's almost Valentine's Day, but doesn't this technically count as bullying the Original Poster?

1. How is this news
2. This is a normal Colors! 3D. I have checked back to their desperate submissions only to find them posting horrible comments about frustration to themselves... o-o
3. People need to realize that Colors! 3D is a application for kids too. This is not good even if Valentines Day is arriving soon...

People do stuff like this in youtube comments, I know everyone needs love, but it gets annoying and being desperate is not attractive.
