Why You Should Research All Potential Partners

Dating hasn't changed that much over the years. It's still not fun to go on blind dates, it's still nervewracking to start up conversations with random people, and it's difficult to find a person worth going on more than a few dates with. But technology has changed, and to our advantage. Unfortunately, some "rando" guy failed to realize that.

Meet Quin Woodward Pu.

A self-described "memoirist," she recently had a few dates with a guy she refers to as "rando" since he was a random guy at a bar (OMG how clever!) and things went south fast.

But it's the "rando's" fault. Why? We'll get to that in a moment.

Quin and "rando" went on a few dates, but he decided he just wasn't ready for a relationship, so he sent this text:

And here is how she responded:

Holy hell this chick is crazy. 100% insane. Even our good friend Georgie Guinane, who is a female, agrees with me. Quin tries to play it off like it's about being a strong woman in her blog about the situation, but it's not. A crazy woman doesn't equate to being strong. There's absolutely no reason for this response.

Now, not to defend her, but "rando" should have called. If you're going to call a relationship off or reveal you're not looking to make something serious, be a man. Grow a pair, dial the number, and call. This WHOLE thing might have been avoided if "rando" had a sack.

Or if he had done his research like he should have. I read a few paragraphs of her previous writing and realized how far up her own ass she was. We have Facebook and Google. USE THEM. You meet someone at a bar? Great! Now, go home and research them. If "rando" had simply Googled her name, he would have probably thought, "Hmm. This girl seems pretty stuck up and full of herself. Maybe it's not worth my time and effort." Instead, he let his dick or heart or whatever do the thinking instead of his brain.

So, men. Let this be a lesson for you. USE. YOUR. BRAIN. Don't think with anything other than your brain. It's better to be safe than sorry. We hope "rando" can learn something from this. And we also hope Quin learns to not be crazy but judging by her reaction to the whole thing, she won't.

So don't date Quin Woodward Pu. Don't do it.

Even if you haven't had sex in years and she's ready and willing, don't.

Even if she is offering you $1,000 to just give her a kiss, don't.

Even if sleeping with her means your grandma can get that life-saving kidney, don't (what kind of f**ked up situation are you in, anyway?)

Even if a box of kittens, attached to a rope, is placed on the edge of a bridge and the only way you can save them by having sex with her in a bed that is on the other end of that rope and the thrusting will push the bed away from the bridge, therefore, causing the box of kittens to move away from the edge of the bridge, don't.

Even if you two are the last people on Earth and you are the only ones that can repopulate the planet, don't do it. We don't need a society that comes from her DNA.

Quin Woodward Pu is the anti-Nike. Don't do it.
