How Big Of An Asshole Is This Boyfriend That Ran 5.5 Miles To Spell Out "Prom" To His Girlfriend In A Running App?
ABC News – Asking the right person to prom is an important decision for many high school students, and one teenager in Ohio found a creative way to pop the question.
Joran Fuller, a 17-year-old who attends Findlay High School, ran 5.5 miles along a route that spelled out “Prom?” and recorded it on the running app Strava. He then brought flowers to his girlfriend, Claire Short, 16, and had her pull up the app.
Joran said the idea spawned from similar things he’d seen people do with the app.
“I’d seen on Strava some different Strava art things where in big cities cyclists would map out these big elaborate designs,” Joran said. “That inspired me a little bit but I’d never seen somebody do words.”
In addition to the social media response, the pair said people at school are in awe of the proposal as well.
“We’ve gotten a lot of attention at school today,” Claire said.
I wanted to throw up when I read this article. There are not many things in life that bother me more than “creative” prom proposals. I saw them all throughout my time in high school and wanted to put a gun in my mouth every time. So now we got this asshole running five miles to spell out Prom on a running app in just the most cocksucker move of all time. If I were one of the other guys in this high school I would spit in his food during lunch, set the hardest screen possible in basketball during gym class, whatever it takes to bring him back to Earth. Maybe slash a tire or two. 115,000 likes on twitter?? This guy has to be at a LeBron level of insufferable leading up to prom. Making every other normal dude who has a girlfriend feel like absolute shit, and I’m here to tell you that you shouldn’t feel that way. In fact I would propose you all boycott this prom. You know what I did during both my junior and senior proms? I drove down with a few of my buddies to the after-prom weekend hours before everyone else got there. We got absolutely hammered and claimed beds for ourselves all before the other people got there. So my advice is do that, let this asshole show up to prom by himself and help bring that ego back down to planet Earth.
A nice card and flowers are all you need. You don’t have to go to Madison Square Garden and rent space on the jumbotron to ask your date (some asshole did that during my senior year). You don’t have to run like an absolute idiot 5.5 miles to spell out prom. You don’t need to stand out because you’re not doing anyone else favors. Someone pulls this bullshit and now every other girlfriend in that school wants a special surprise proposal. Joran, you fucked over all your boys.
P.S. If you use a running app as a guy then get the fuck out. Girls are all self conscious psychopaths about exercise and calories I get that, but if you’re a guy doing that just hand over your man card and close the door on the way out.
