A: Um. Wow. Okay. This is pretty recent, but uh... Decided to open my relationship with my boyfriend, like on Valentine's Day, this year. Craziest thing I've ever done for love— for love of all.
A: I gave up my home.
A: I can think for a minute, right? You know what? This is kind of a weird answer, but I think it was finishing college. Because I really didn't want to, but I knew my mom, like... I needed to finish college 'cause she— like that's kind of her whole life. She worked, really, really, fucking hard so that I could go to school and like, have a life she didn't have. So, I finished.
A: The craziest thing I've done for love, um? Okay, so when I was 18, I went on a spring break to Panama City Beach and I met this guy Tyler from Alabama and um, the following summer I went to Alabama to meet him and I stayed there for a week. We had a ball— did a lot of drugs, had a lot of sex, ate at Applebees's and Olive Garden, like terrible chain restaurants. Um, but it was amazing. And we went to some river, it was very southern and maybe the first time I'd ever spent time in the south. And that guy was white! Actually, I still know him on Facebook-ish. I know of him on Facebook. So, that's the craziest thing I've ever done for love.
A: This is such a hard question right now. I'm supposed to have an answer? What's the craziest thing I've done for love? I think just in this moment, it's not a specific thing, but like being brave over and over again—to show myself and show up from my heart even though it was um... I think just period. Like, that's hard. That's crazy.
A: Okay. I got an idea. Well, I work right now on Long Island as a carpenter. And uh, this time last year I agreed to move in with my girlfriend, just over there. So I've been commuting, I've been driving about...been in the car for about three hours a day for the past year to get closer with my girlfriend. And it's been... It's been great. It's actually like the defining factor of our relationship right now that we are so close and that we get to spend all the time together and that we get to be in this great neighborhood. And uh, it's funny, actually I'm starting a new job on Monday... so, I decided to keep the girlfriend and lose the job.
A: I sound stupid. Okay, so... I was in love and Valentine's Day just passed... obviously that was a thing, cute. Um, and I was like talking to someone—we weren't like officially dating, but we had been talking for about three months-ish. And like, the day before Valentine's Day, they wanna be like, "uh, I don't know". Basically, they were like no longer interested. But I was just trying to understand like, we were like so good (this is so funny because this just happened). And so like, after that, I was just like, "what the heck?" And so I went on my phone and we had each other on Snapchat and I like, looked to see where the person was and then... haha! I basically like, unannounced went to go confront them like... "what the fuck is going on? We were totally, definitely like all good. What's happening?" And, so yeah... I feel like that definitely was crazy. No. Yeah, that's definitely crazy. Thank you for asking me this question. That was therapeutic.
A: The craziest thing? Bought somebody a 300 dollar pair of foamposites.
A: Uh, moved across the country. I'm from California. I was living in Oakland—me and my girlfriend— and she got a job here. +
(And once again, shout out #Oakland!)
[Editor's Cut]: Answer #1... I flew across the country for a Valentine's Day surprise. And everything that you could imagine going wrong, went wrong. I was stuck, in a car that wouldn't start, in the dead of the night, with just about a jacket on. It was not as funny to me then as it is now, but that story will always crack me up when I think about it, and then it makes me upset. Haha!
