When Impressing A Girl Goes Terribly Wrong…Jun 12th, 2011 | Author: admin | Category: Fly Features
Looking back over my relationship resume, I can safely say that I’ve done my fair share of things that have caused me embarrassment in the name of impressing a girl. I’ve gotten a tattoo, written an open letter to the world, publicly sang her a song, and engaged in a host of other acts that I pray my high school and college classmates never share.
But those are the types of actions that are expected when a man is smitten by a woman. As men, we do silly things such as these to get the girl … it’s as simple as that.
Apparently, Todd Blauvelt didn’t like the traditional guy methods, as he tried to impress his girlfriend and her family with something that was both stupid, and flat out illegal.
According to a state police investigator, Blauvelt, 18, told his girlfriend and her family that he had inherited a 6,000 square-foot lake house in South Bristol, a town in western New York state. A magnanimous sort, he invited the girlfriend’s family to move in with him. So they did! But they only got to stay for about an hour or so before the true owner showed up, saw all these unfamiliar people hanging out inside their vacation palace, and called police. Blauvelt was arrested and charged with second-degree burglary (a felony) and punishable false written statement (a misdemeanor); the girlfriend and her family apparently didn’t know anything about the savvy scheme, and aren’t in any trouble.
In addition to the burglary charge and the other charge, Blauvelt’s also facing charges for sexual misconduct and endangering the welfare of a child. Turns out that his girlfriend is only 15 years old. “He loves trouble I guess and I’ve been trying to steer him right for a long time,” says a lakefront property owner who knows Blauvelt and is probably no more impressed with him than his girlfriend’s family must be.
OK, Fly Guy family, give me your thoughts on his stunt, then tell me the wildest thing you’ve ever done to impress a woman. On the flipside, ladies give me examples of stunts that men have tried to win your heart.
