We told you a few months ago that online dating site Tinder, with 25 million daily love connections, was putting a stop to phony celebrity profiles. Singles looking for love were being tricked into chatting with their supposed celebrity crush.

Tinder put a stop to that with celebrities now verifying their profiles. But that doesn't mean you still can't date a celebrity like Tom Hanks, or at least a character he portrayed.

That's right. Some Tinder users are being tricked into falling for Forrest Gump. His name on Tinder is Blake, but he's using the life story of Hanks' title character from the Oscar wining movie, as his own.

His posts are pretty funny, too, as long you're not the one getting tangled up in it. He has said, for instance, that his wife recently died and that he's raising their young son. "Oh my god I'm so sorry," responded one would-be love interest.
