This writer has come up with a novel way of finding a date, by buying people he admires a coffee before he even meets them.

Jake Moreno, a 23-year-old writer from Utah, bought five-dollar Starbucks gift cards for his potential dates, which read: “Congratulations on being attractive!”

Posting his idea to Twitter, Moreno said: “This year i’m going to try a more seasonal approach to dating… I’ll let you know how it goes.”

Although several women replied to him on Twitter praising the brilliant dating idea, he is yet to get a date with his cards.

He said: “I actually haven’t given any cards out yet. I plan to give them all out by the end of the week or at the start of next.”

The original method of trying to get a date has more than 9,500 likes on Twitter, and even a few admirers.

Moreno said: “I actually had the idea a few months ago when I was thinking of other ways to ask girls on dates.

“I joke about it a lot but I really do have a pretty low success rate with the ladies. Hopefully this works!”
