A guy named Jake did the unthinkable recently: he tried to apply his college education in the real world. And it actually....paid off?!?!?!? STAY WITH ME, FOLKS. This is real.
Here is Jake:
According to his newly-viral tweet, Jake has about "0 skills" when it comes to texting girls. And having met a Jake or 8 million in my day, I actually believe him.
So when Jake wanted to ask out a young woman named Hannah, he decided to "legit" ask his English professor for help. And his English professor, who I'm guessing doesn't get this request very often, went all out, drawing this extremely helpful, highly academic diagram, in which he utilizes (ENGLISH MAJOR WHAT'S UP) the Aristotelian concepts of ethos, logos and pathos, to guide Jake towards asking Hannah out. And...
...here it is:
Turns out, the key to getting someone to go on a date with you is: ARISTOTLE. Because, according to this screenshot Jake shared on Twitter, this method could not have gone better for him:
Jake's tweet about his experience with higher-learning/dating went massively viral, wracking up over 70,000 retweets since he shared it on Wednesday.
EVERYONE WANTS IN ON THIS PHILOSOPHY ACTION.
And clearly, taking an interest in his studies has worked out great for Jake. Not only did he score a date with his crush, but women of Twitter are lining up to date him if things with Hannah don't work out.
And OTHER guys are getting in on the action.
Maybe I should have paid more attention in my college English classes.
