  • The porn star said she's been struggling to find dates due to the pandemic
  • Reid hopes to find someone "fun" and "cool"

Porn star Riley Reid revealed that she has been having trouble finding men to go on dates with during the pandemic and asked her followers to recommend someone she could consider dating.

On Friday, Reid, whose real name is Ashley Mathews, shared a new bikini photo on Instagram, along with the message that she is more than ready to get back into the dating scene. According to the 29-year-old adult star, the pandemic and dating apps that keep taking down her profile aren't helping.

"Hi, I’m Riley & I’m very single," she wrote on Instagram, along with a snap of her lying on a hammock in a leopard-print swimsuit. "Dating apps always delete my profile & with COVID dating has been HARD."

She added, "So tag someone you think I should go on a date with!! I’m loads of fun & heaps cool so yea set me up with your fun cool friends."

Reid's followers immediately came through for the adult performer and tagged the Instagram accounts of their friends whom they feel would click with her.

One fan commented that their "amazing friend" likes Reid, adding, "Besides he is a great person and rich."

Another follower recommended someone whom they describe as "one of your biggest [fans] and he is french! He dreams to date you one day @titsoutkickedout!"

A third fan tagged another Instagram user who is "very single" just like Reid, adding: "can’t recommend a better guy to date than him."

Several others went ahead and recommended themselves, asking the adult star in the comments section of her post if she would be open to going on a date with them.

Reid has been open about her struggles when it comes to finding a partner.

She revealed in an earlier Instagram post that she has only had two "normal" boyfriends who were not involved in the adult industry. Reid recalled that both men had made her choose between them and her career, and she always chose the latter.

Reid confessed that there were times when she wondered whether she should have made a different choice in those moments.

"I’ve struggled with that choice tho, wondering if I’ve made the right decision. I worry that maybe I lost my chance at love & happiness," she wrote in September.

However. Reid said she is not giving up hope that she will find someone who can accept her and her profession.

"Knowing I carry the weight of shame around me I find it hard to believe that some day someone will accept me and love me for all of me," she continued. "But I can hope. So this is me hoping that one day someone will be proud to call me theirs & that other sex workers like me can feel the love we all desire."

Just recently, Reid purchased a vintage Chevrolet and said she wished she had a "cute boy" to join her in her new ride.
