Roundtable Discussion | The Craziest Thing You’ve Done For Love
With How I Met Your Mother ending this week, Tristan asked our staff to divulge the craziest things they’ve ever done for someone they loved or had a crush on. The responses will AMAZE you haha. But no, really, they’re pretty funny.
Stole a blue french horn 😉
When I was in high school I had a huge crush on a girl. She and her friends posted on MySpace (yes, MySpace) all the time about how they loved The Notebook and Walk To Remember so much. So, since I wanted to have something in common with her, I loaned a bunch of Nicholas Sparks books from the library and read them.
They were terrrrrrrible.
Back in my high school days, I had a boyfriend whose bedroom window was reachable by going up the back stairs and then an easy little climb onto the roof. In retrospect it seems kinda creepy, but I used to just pop on over and climb in through the window. At the time I guess he thought it was cute, or it didn’t bother him at least, but it escapes me why I didn’t just use the door like a normal person.
Marie – that is so Clarissa Explains It All. Love it!
Haha I was just going to say she was Sam from Clarissa Explains It All.
Oh, the ’90s…. when we were so innocent, a guy climbing a ladder and crawling through a girl’s bedroom window was considered charming, not terrifying.
I’ll throw something out there, a different kind of crazy. I read the entirety of The Notebook to my high school girlfriend. I have neither defense nor excuse.
Christopher… I mean, dude… I read Nicholas Sparks, but never out loud, man. Gotta keep that garbage to yourself.
Whoa whoa whoa, I didn’t read it for me. Maybe YOU should keep that to YOURself.
Hey man, my plan to have something in common with her worked. We dated for ten months, and in that time I even kissed her on the cheek once or twice.
I’m a prude. I blame Nicholas Sparks.
I’m pretty sure in the Nicholas Sparks world that makes you a veritable Ares. Good on you, mate. 😉
Oooo totally meant Eros.
WAR OF LOVE!
Also (and I believe many of y’all are also guilty of this) I definitely did some hanging out on AIM for longer than I should have hoping that my crush would sign on and I could send him an innocuous message to spur a chat session.
I once skipped an FSU/UF Football game that I had tickets to so I could spend time with my girlfriend and her family over Thanksgiving. Worst decision ever.
