Jacob McGee, senior biomedicine major from California, said, “I bought a bunch of roses and arranged them in a heart shape at the end of a bike path. As I did, I noticed a hobo walking nearby. As the girl and I walked down the path, I noticed the roses weren’t there anymore. That’s when I realized the hobo stole the roses. I explained to this girl about my plan, but I made it really cheesy and asked her out anyway.”

Morgyn Carroll, freshman accounting major from California, said, “Valentine’s Day fell on our three-month anniversary. My boyfriend at the time took me to a really nice Mexican restaurant. I ordered a burrito, but it ended up being massive. I kept choking on it. The waiter even came up with another fork and knife to make sure I was okay.”

Kennedy Anderton, freshman biomedicine major from Idaho, said, “A boy came up to me and asked me to get up on stage with him. When I did, he whipped out a guitar and said he wrote a song for me. He sang me his love song and then continued to tell me he was in love with me. I wasn’t really sure how to react, so I just stood still with a straight face. I actually ended up dating him, so it all worked out I guess.”

Brooke Critchfield, freshman English major from Utah, said, “In sixth grade, a boy who liked me gave me chocolates and a teddy bear for Valentine’s Day. On the bus home after school, I sat by a different boy I liked. We threw the chocolates out the window. Although I had an irrational fear that there was a camera in the teddy bear, I covered it up. After that I never talked to him again.”

Isabella Dearaujo, senior art major from California, said, “In high school, I was friends with this guy who liked me more than I liked him I guess. On Valentine’s Day, he decorated my entire room with Valentine memes and hearts. When I got there, he was hiding in my closet, and he jumped out to surprise me. It scared me so bad that I fell and sprained my wrist.”
