date me, brent
Because that's when my friend Jamie was brought in on the plot. And the conversation changed from "What would the Raleigh bachelor give out instead of roses?" to "We could do webisodes." Pretty soon, an entire elaborate plan was concocted with several stages, a day of challenges, a survey was created, and a Facebook page. An application deadline of August 15 was set. That's when it became pretty clear they really wanted to do this. Like I said, at first I thought it was ridiculous. But I also figured why not? I'm young. I'm single. I like having fun experiences. And I'm generally comfortable enough with who I am that I'm not afraid to put myself out there and look like a fool. (Which seems pretty likely at some point in this process... especially considering that normally the number of girls who I think want to date me and the number who actually do are two numbers that bear little correlation to one another.) The only sad part will be if no eligible bachelorettes actually fill out the survey. That will be less than an ideal birthday present.
Please like this page. Share it with your friends. Share it on your profile. Fill out the survey or send it to a friend. If I have two responses come in, it might really strike a blow to my self confidence. This is a joke but it's also really going to happen. There's no stopping it now. And if nothing else, it's going to be really hilarious. And hey, if you're reading this, you (or your friend) could be the lucky bachelorette.
