How do you expect to find the love of your life? Is it like the normal way, you meet someone, you go on a couple of dates, and you eventually fall in love? Or is it the modern way? You look at their pictures and bio; you swipe right if you like them and they go left if you’re not convinced. 

With the increasing popularity of online dating, we wonder if celebrities are into it as well. And with stars like Britney Spears, Hillary Duff and Ronda Rousey creating a real Tinder account, a famous comedian also found love through the famous dating app. 

American Comedian Ron Funches revealed in 2015 that he met his girlfriend the modern way, swiping her profile right. 

But the modern way didn't end here, as the famous comedian chose another social platform, Twitter to talk about his dating experience.

Four Way Love: Son, Marijuana, Comedy, Wrestling

We all know that he has a son from his previous wife with whom he separated in 2012.

An avid wrestling enthusiast, Ron has never remained shy talking about his autistic son, who loved Oreos and bacon for breakfast, according to one of his 2015 interview. 

“[As a parent] you know this isn’t healthy, but if I don’t [give you Oreos and bacon], you’ll slam your head against the wall,” Ron says. “When he was young, it was just about getting him to eat at all. That was scary, and he was very underweight.”

Spending time with his son playing video games and assisting him to do his homework isn't Ron's only concerns in life. 

Ron's love for cannabis and video games combinedly is a deadly combination through which he extracts humor out of things and infuses them into his comedy.   

It’s just fun to play, like, Peggle. I don’t know if you’ve heard of Peggle? You shoot little dots, and there are unicorn farts, and— it’s like pachinko mixed with Bubble Bobble, I guess, in a way. It’s real fun to play when you’re stoned.

Most games are fun. I like Red Dead Redemption just to hang out and smoke pot.

And when asked about racism, Ron, who made positive jokes about his son autism in his stand-ups, handled the matter with subtle humor, stating.

"It's fun to challenge people's stereotypes and remind people that we're all people and we all have the same fears and desires."

The American actor even headlined “Cannabis Comedy Tour,” an eight-city event, sponsored and organized by Leafly back in July 2016.

Wannabe Gay

Ron’s unique delivery and lovable demeanor make him irresistible and believable while on the stage. And when he kissed Michael Ian Black on the set of the Comedy Central comedy series,"The Meltdown,” it was amazingly funny.

In 2015, Ron even shared a smooch with fellow Undateable’s cast member Rick Glassman for a video.

Likewise, when he tweeted that he had feelings for Dave Franco (American actor James Franco’s brother and his Get Hard costar Alison Brie then-fiance), it was once again a hilarious movie. 

Dating Life, Girlfriends

In an interview with in March 2015, Ron officially revealed for the first time about his girlfriend. 

When the interviewer asked him whether he resembled with his insecure character Sally from American sitcom Undatable in real-life, Funches said,

Yeah, definitely a little bit. I'm not really a big one-night-stand type of guy. I have a nice girlfriend now, but it took me a while to get her, so I'm going to hold onto her for as long as I can.

In the interview, he also added that his mom, son and his girlfriend made him laugh in his life. 

Later in October 2015, he revealed to People magazine that he met his girlfriend on Tinder. Then, he also shared dating tips via a video, stating, 

"I think for me, it's just been about being confident in myself and just being happy with who I am and that you don't have to just chase every girl that looks good, you know, because sometimes they're not a good match for you and then you end up like (expletive) your ears when you didn't want to or wearing a jacket that you shouldn't wear because it's not your style."

The interviews with People and Pheonixnewtimes were the two instances where the California-born comedian publicly talked about his dating life seriously.

Other than that, Ron's girlfriend related Twitter posts and stand-up comedy jokes made us more confused.
