Our Appetizer.: Do you take boyfriend applications?

June 10, 2014

Do you take boyfriend applications?

You are probably wondering what the title of this post means, I will get into that in a little. This past weekend was so much fun! I went out way too much and spent way too much money but it was all worth it. I went out to celebrate a bride-to-be with dinner and drinks on Friday and Saturday I went out for one of my best friends birthdays.

There were about 12 girls that went out Friday night to celebrate Raluca getting married! It was a more laid back bachelorrete party since the whole bridal party rented a cabin for a long weekend a few weekends ago. Friday night I wore leather leggings and a black shirt with black heels as well a had a bright blue blazer with me just in case it got chilly. We all had such a blast at dinner and then went out for drinks and dancing downtown. 

So let me explain what happened Saturday night and where the title came from. 

Saturday during the day I had my normal lunch with my parents as we do every Saturday. After lunch I went to get Shannon some birthday presents and ended up buying some stuff for myself too #alwayshappens. Elisha and Shannon came over around 8ish and had some wine, did some gift exchanging and chatted about girl stuff. Elisha and I planned to take Shannon out for her birthday as a surprise because she didn't want anything big. We did dinner on East 4th which was amazing, I swear there is nothing better than good food, good drinks and good friends.

After dinner, we made our way to a Spanish restaurant a few doors down. We had a drink there but it really wasn't our cup of tea for the night. As we walked out, a guy stopped me and asked if we were leaving and I said yes, then he said "If you stay I'll get you a drink." Thanks but no thanks, I'm out with the girls :) 

We made our way to Drop Bar on West 6th as we always do when we want to dance. Upon walking in we same some people we knew, we got some drinks and found our way on the patio. All three of us girls were talking to a good guy friend and then enters Alex, a random stranger with terrible pickup lines.

The conversation went as follows:

Alex: Hi, do you have a lighter?
Me: No, I don't smoke. 
Alex: Oh me either, I borrowed this from that girl so I could talk to you. 
Me: Ahh, nice. 
Alex: So I have a question.
Me: What's up?
Alex: Uhh, do you take applications?
Me: Applications for what? (mind you I knew where he was going with this)
Alex: Applications for a boyfriend.
Me: Ummm no. haha
Alex: You are so darn cute though, and I just want to take you out
Me: Umm, no thank you. 

At this point, he starts talking about himself and what he does (annoying). 

Alex: Can I get your number to take you out sometime?
Me: Uhh....I guess. 
Alex: Do you want the black number or the white number? (He pulled out two iPhones from his pocket)
Me: I don't really care. 
Alex: Ok, 708...
Me: Holding phone in hand, typing phone number.
Alex: Actually let me get your number and I'll call you so you have it. 
Me: Uhh ok. 

Then he starts talking to Elisha and Shannon. While he is talking to Shannon, Elisha and I decide to go to the restroom. After we came back this happened: 

Shannon: Sooo that Alex guy asked me to do him a really big favor.
Me: Ok, what was his favor?
Shannon: He asked me to make sure that Ashley calls him. 
Me: hahahaha Ashley huh
Shannon: Apparently he couldn't remember your name. 

Needless to say, I haven't talked to him nor will I ever talk to him. Maybe Ashley can call him haha. 

How was your weekend?
Have you ever dealt with something like this?


  1. Lol. I'm mad he tried to impress you with his two different iPhones. That's not impressive to me - that's wasteful.

    1. Haha I know! He was so cocky and thought his was all that. It was just terribly funny.

  2. Oh my, men are a joke sometimes. Glad you had a good time besides all that.

    1. Yes, I agree! It was hilarious and it made for a fun rest of the evening. Plus our inside joke is calling me Ashley now haha.

  3. hahah what a lame pick up line and borrowing a smoke to talk to you, um. doubly lame

    1. Haha right!!! Where do guys come up with these lines!?!

  4. Bwhaha what a douche bag !! At least you and your girls had a good laugh :)

    1. We had a great laugh. I cannot believe the pick up lines guys use these days.

  5. DYING. Can't believe you saw me out!

    1. I know, I was in the middle of my conversation with this guy when I saw you walk by.

  6. Ha what a d-bag! I'm glad you haven't talked to him. You deserve so much better! Sounds like a fun girls night. I have a bachelorette trip to wine country next week - can't wait. xo

    1. Haha no, I would never respond to any texts or anything. It was just a funny conversation, it made for a good laugh. I cannot wait to read about your bachelorette trip! I wanna to do a wine tasting tour of a bunch of different vineyards soon, it sounds like so much fun!

  7. Wow that guys sounded like a major D-bag!!! Next time maybe you should say you do accept applications and tell him to go fill one out in the corner while you make your getaway :)
