Now THIS is desperate...

Postby knapplc » Wed Feb 15, 2006 1:31 pm

WESTON, Fla. - If any female juniors at Cypress Bay High School weren’t aware of classmate Paul Kim — they know him now.

The 17-year-old junior ordered 500 red roses and had them delivered to nearly all his female classmates on Valentine’s Day.

A card attached to the roses said, “To all the lovely ladies of 2007, here’s wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day. Affectionately, Paul Kim.”
He said he used money he had been saving since his birthday in December to pay for the roses, which cost about $900.

“To me, Valentine’s is a special day,” Kim said. “I realized that not many girls would get anything and it would be an ordinary day. I figured I’d take the initiative and put a smile on their face.”

Sara Farinelli, 16, got her rose during her math class.

“I don’t know who this kid is, but he’s sending everyone a rose,” Farinelli said. “I think it’s a cute gesture.”

Kim’s estimate on the class size was slightly off. There are more than 600 girls in Cypress Bay’s junior class.

He said he got the idea Friday, when he saw the Business Professionals of America club was having trouble selling flowers as a fundraiser.


It's great that he bought the flowers to support the fundraiser, but that reeks of desperation! I'm guessing this guy isn't exactly awash in dates. Although after this, maybe... :-? ;-)

If nothing comes of this, he just wasted $900.

If he gets some, it's worth every penny.

He'll soon find out, I guess.

I gotta say I don't think he's getting any from this. It just reeks of desperation.

He would have been better off targeting just a few girls and giving them like 100 roses each. At least then they'd feel special in some way. With every girl in school getting a rose, none of them is any better than any of the others. And we all know girls need to feel special at all times.

How about those 100 girls who didn't get a rose; sucks to be them.

You're right though, I was thinking nerd kid, no girlfriend, totally desperate tries to buy a date to the prom. Sad.

He just got attention of all the girls who do not have someone. Pretty slick.

If he was a loser, he'll be a bigger loser.

If he was a jock, he'll be a more popular jock.

With a name like Kim I can't see him being a jock though...

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

If he sees 20 boobs, it was worth twice as much... but the sad part though is that I don't think he'll get anything out of it except "there's that sweet, dorky kid who sent all of us the roses."

Nah. That gag came and went. It's back to regular business now, as far as I'm concerned.

It can't stay funny forever, you know? ;-)

:-b

I doubt he's going to see one hj.... or even the same boob 20 times...

But maybe he'll find himself some dork love out of such a romantic gesture though... you know, like a chubby with bad skin and braces. And maybe he'll even get to touch her through her clothes.
