The dating minefield is a crazy mess of weird opening lines and requests for nudes. It’s no wonder people feel like they have to put in a little extra effort to set themselves apart from the freaks.
But Heaven forbid if you’re someone with a sense of humor and a little extra time on your hands. That’s precisely what happened when Ben set up his upcoming first date with Tom.
Ben V. is a self-professed full time weirdo.
We’d also like to add that he has a heart of gold, based purely on his date research skills.
Ben’s PowerPoint is full of venue ideas based on things like weather, trendy places to avoid because of lines, and proximity to drinks.
The images are a nice touch.
Ben gives not just one, but THREE suggestions, all of which are perfectly acceptable date places, giving the gents plenty to talk about.
Sure, there’s a lot of information here. But as someone who can’t ever seem to make up their mind, I can appreciate when someone does the research. Otherwise you’re both stuck in an endless loop of “I dunno, whatever you wanna do” until you just end up at a bar. Blah.
There’s even a conclusion, explaining that Ben is open to other suggestions or just keeping it lowkey.
But what did Tom do in response?
Cold. Fucking. Blooded.
Sure, it may seem a little in-depth, a bit too detailed for some. But even if it weirded you out, wouldn’t it be worth asking the other party how long it took them to put together, just to have some basis for the level of uncomfortable you should be.
