“Ever since we got back from Christmas break my roommate had been talking about how she needed a date to her formal, but she has been studying so hard for the MCAT that she hasn’t been able to go out and meet people. She kept complaining so I decided to take matters into my own hands! I told her the night before I posted it on Facebook that I came up with the perfect way to find her a date. She thought it was hilarious and agreed that I could post it.”
“I’ve always been terrible at rollerblading. Honestly, that’s probably why I’m still single,” Adams told BuzzFeed News. “But I make up for it in other ways like being an emotional flower and legitimately acting like a dad in public.”
“At the beginning of the semester I was in one of the MSU cafeterias and saw this absolutely gorgeous girl. We started making small talk and I worked up the courage to ask her on a date,” he said.
“She asked if I had a dating resume that she could look at, and when I said no (like any normal person would) she told me no,” he said. “So afterward I decided to make one, so if it ever came up again I could use it in my favor.”
In fact, he never even wound up meeting the girl.
“Ashley informed me that the mysterious suitor has since asked another guy to formal. I never actually talked with the girl who originally needed a date, just Ashley who originally made the Facebook post,” he said.
Ashley Harrington told BuzzFeed News that she “was definitely rooting for Joe to be chosen!”
“A lot of girls have contacted me since,” Adams said. “I’ve gotten a few texts asking me to other formals/wedding dates so this wasn’t a lost cause.”
“It definitely stinks that I won’t be going, but I put myself out there and made a lot of people laugh in the meantime,” he said. “As Michael Scott once said, ‘You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.’”
