A BuzzFeed article entitled “This Girl Sent Her Crush A Presentation On Why He Should Date Her And He Actually Replied” detailed the slideshow a University of Minnesota student named Lizzy Fenton posted on Twitter. BuzzFeed reported that it was directed at “her crush, Carter,” identified as Carter Blochwitz, as an effort to convince him to date her.
Microsoft even tweeted their encouragement.
BuzzFeed went into detail about the charming parts of the presentation, which went viral on Twitter — as well as Carter’s apparent response.
Numerous other news outlets have covered Fenton’s apparent efforts to win over the object of her affection, including HuffPost, People and the Daily Mail. 50 Cent even felt the need to comment about her on Facebook.
But a look at Fenton’s and Blochwitz’s social media accounts strongly suggest that the presentation is just a joke and that the two know each other very well.
Two months ago, she appeared in a video he posted on Vimeo.
They go back further.
Fenton tweeted this photo of Blochwitz last October.
And Blochwitz posted these photos of her on Instagram last September and October.
In fact, this photo of Fenton is the first pic Blochwitz ever posted on this Instagram account.
