Like most young women who go to bars, Victoria Trocino has more than a few phone numbers she acquired while less than sober, and which she had no intention of following up on. Alas, Valentine's Day can make people do strange things. As a joke with her friend Clare, Trocinio texted 17 dudes she'd briefly connected with while summering in Dublin the last couple of years and shared the results on her blog, Blog on Fleek.
While a bunch of guys didn't respond to her V-Day well wishes—which is a shame because who knows what the Cian or Eoin she'd met would've said—a few did. Trocino told Someecards she "wasn't expecting any replies but my phone started buzzing." This story does not end with Trocino finding love. It only ends with strange text exchanges, which is arguably better.
This is what Isaac, a "a goddamn doctor," had to say.
After a seven month hiatus, Niall responded blandly. Boo, Niall.
Penguin Erector engaged in the greatest conversation. One would have to with a contact name like Penguin Erector. Trocino explained how this guy claimed that as his job title, because "he had the duty of picking up the penguins and placing them upright if they fell over" at the Dublin Zoo. Unfortunately, he wasn't a keeper.
Ryan, the last guy to respond, almost knew who Trocino was.
"...yellow hair n big tits" is close to small-chested brunette, at least when one is drunk.
"...these four conversations exceeded my expectations in every way possible," Trocino wrote.
Sadly, these were all the exchanges Trocino had. Maybe some more will respond over the week. Though it would be hard for another guy to top Penguin Erector's messages. From the start, he had everyone else beat.
