This Dude Landed A Date After Running Marathon With Dating Ad On His Back

Sometimes, dating apps just don’t cut it. They start off as something kind of legit, but eventually it gets to be so popular that everyone and their brother downloads it, writes a bio where grammar goes to die, and ignores any and all conversations that could potentially ever happen. It’s the way the world works because our generation is a flock of strange birds.

Steve Bergstrom knows this. But if we’re being totally honest, I’m not sure if it’s because he recognizes that our generation is borderline psychotic or if it’s because he’s King Bird. All I do know is that he got a date, and that’s more than most of us can say.

Steve went a little outside of the box to find him a nice lady friend/potential crazy person to take to dinner. As a marketing professional, Steve, who has admitted to having no actual time to date, realized that he could find the woman of his dreams at the Chicago Marathon.

“I have a job that occupies a lot of my time,” Steve told Runner’s World. “Having a ridiculous hour commute each way, and then also being dedicated to my gym and dedicated to my sports, I don’t have a ton of spare time on my hands.”

So, in order to find a woman who was also interested in running, Steve ran shirtless amongst his target audience with the words “SINGLE / on Facebook / Steve Bergstrom” on his back, and came home to messages from 12 different girls and even took one of them on a date. Maybe he was completely inside the box. It’s up for interpretation.

No word on whether or not the mystery lady from Steve’s date worked out, but I can tell you that she doesn’t actually mean it when she says “it’s fine” that he’s too busy to actually date her.
