Meet Ben, a hot date full of great ideas.
When the Londoner was tasked with planning a first date, he went above and beyond and sent his potential paramour a PowerPoint of pitches.
And Ben has some really awesome ideas, and a great attention to detail.
A free museum with an "Alas Poor Fanny"? Sounds like a perfect date to me, claustrophobia notwithstanding.
There's more than that came from: Ben has an idea for another arty hotspot, with pros such as good memories of Celine Dion, and junkyard golf if Tom is in a more active mood.
Now this Tom fellow was neither arty nor sporty, and completely without a sense of humor (or humoUr in the UK), because the PowerPoint didn't go as planned.

I didn't even know you could block people on WhatsApp.— BV (@velzzb) July 31, 2017
For real, what's this dude's problem?
I think I dodged a bullet because OBVIOUSLY this is tongue-in-cheek and I don’t want someone who has 0 humour— BV (@velzzb) July 31, 2017
Sir John Soane's Museum—of Option 1 fame—chimed in and said "good riddance."
Ben is not alone. Others have used Microsoft Office for flirting, and have taken it in much stranger directions.
Someone asked me out by PowerPoint once - and ended on an entire Walt Witman poem. pic.twitter.com/1HM2aL6cYv— Ross (@rmcqj) August 1, 2017
this makes me feel a lot less weird— BV (@velzzb) August 1, 2017
You're missing out, Tom.
Anyone would be lucky to play crazy golf (not a euphemism) with you.
