Girl urges crush to date her with aid of PowerPoint presentation

Admit it—we all go to great lengths to impress our respective crushes, but sometimes some people go way overboard.

A college student taking up genetics at the University of Minnesota has become the latest toast on Twitter, after photos of her peculiar PowerPoint presentation made the rounds online.

Instead of the usual class-related slideshow, Lizzy Fenton made a compelling presentation aimed to persuade her classmate—and apple of her eye—Carter Blochwitz to take her out on a date.

Her detailed presentation, called “Why You Should Date Me,” featured her finest and most desirable qualities, in the form of bulleted text points.

“Sick of your family nagging you to get a serious girlfriend? Look no further,” she wrote on her vivid illustration.

Her pitch even went beyond the “meeting-the-parents” phase.

“I am a tantalizing conversationalist and can hold riveting table talk with your parents. I am well dressed and will look classy at Thanksgiving dinner, family reunions, and other events of the like,” she said.

Fenton’s redeeming, and perhaps most peculiar pitch, meanwhile, focused on the supposed growth of her bust size over the years. She claimed to have moved from an A cup to a DD between the years 2013 and 2017.

Her slideshow even featured “endorsements” from big names like Channing Tatum and The Times.

Her efforts, however, were all for naught, as Blochwitz coldly replied: “This is very nice. Please stop contacting me.” His answer appeared to be a gag, as the two are reportedly friends, according to The New York Post.
