A young woman has detailed how she met her now-boyfriend the old-fashioned way – after her “wingman” dad spontaneously set them up at a pub.

“I just wasn’t having fun, I was feeling like crap, it was taking its toll and I just thought, I’m just going to take the pressure off for a while,” she said in a now-viral TikTok video.

Just three weeks later, the 30-year-old was enjoying a casual night out with her dad at the pub when they spotted an attractive stranger sitting at the bar.

“Fast forward, I was sitting at the local pub with my dad, we were just having a drink, talking s***, as you do with your dad,” Alice recalled.

“And he’s like, ‘I don’t know if you’ve noticed but there’s a real hottie sitting at the bar.’

“I’m like, ‘I know dad, I clocked him when I walked in, he’s a total spunk’.

“Dad’s like, ‘Oh, leave it with me’.”

Stepping in as the “ultimate wingman”, the matchmaking dad wandered over to the man.

“They started chatting about footy and all that stuff and then dad’s like, ‘Hey are you single?’ And the dude is like, ‘Yes I am’, and dad’s like, ‘Well… she’s my daughter, she’s single too’, ”she said.

“Anyway we all start chatting and then he’s like, ‘I’ve got to go’ and dad’s like, ‘You can’t leave, you haven’t exchanged numbers’.”

Alice said her dad then walked over to the bar to grab a notepad and pen.

“We both exchanged numbers… and then we’ve been talking,” she said.

“Now we have a date.”

After their first date, Alice confirmed she had an “awesome” time with the man.

“It was a fantastic date,” she said.

“He is very attractive, he’s super successful, very intellectual and good banter.

“All in all, a good date. I’m just trying to be real chill about it because chill is something that I’m not.

‘Dad did real good’

“But I’m trying to be chill and take it one day as it comes.

She added: “Good work dad… Dad did real good.”

More than a month later, Alice shared an exciting update, alongside her dad, on social media.

“Hey dad, remember when we went out to a local pub and you were my wingman and you got a guy’s phone number for me?” she asked, as her dad said “yes”.

“Well last night, he asked me to be his girlfriend.”

‘He’s now my boyfriend’

In another video, Alice said her boyfriend did something that left her “too stunned to speak”.

“So I was driving my boyfriend to pick up his car and he was sitting in the passenger seat. He’d bought us blueberries for breakfast and so he started giving me blueberries to eat as I’m driving,” she recalled.

“Then I look at him and noticed he’s sorting through the blueberries and I was like, ‘What are you doing?’ and he was like, ‘I’m just picking out the ones that are juicy and not bruised to give to you and I’m eating the bad ones.

Amazed with his gesture, Alice urged: “Girls, do not settle, there’s good ones out there.”

‘Can your dad wingman me?’

Her original video has been viewed more than 1.3 million times – with many praising her dad as “the best wingman ever”.

“My dad would never, can I borrow yours please?” one joked.

Another said: “Wow! Can your dad please come wingman for me?”

While one added: “If your dad can find you this gem then surely my dad can find me mine.”
