Look, guys, romance is hard.
It's tough finding that special someone out there whom you really connect with. We aren't all Joseph Gordon-Levitt stepping into an elevator and instantly falling in love with Zooey Deschanel because she sometimes listens to the same bands he does.
For one Imgur user, a foray into the arena of love got off to a bad start.
As he explained it,
I matched with this girl on Christmas and then I messed up by spelling 'Christmas' wrong. I didn't know what to do, so I panicked. I did what any sensible person would do... I sent her a panda fact.
Yes, he employed the completely ubiquitous, hyper-common, age-old tactic of panda-fact swarming, in which you mask your embarrassment with fascinating facts about one of Earth's most adorable and un-horny creatures.
The first panda fact was a simple one -- kind of a first-base panda fact, you could say.
The next day, he was back with more panda facts...
...and would be back again each and every day after that.
He refused to stop.
He even set an alarm so he wouldn't forget...
...and Chrissy, somehow, was always down to hear more.
So, Chrissy is either incredibly patient or she's just the most panda-obsessed person in the known universe.
Seriously, this went on and on and on. He just kept finding more panda facts, and she responded to each and every one.
He worried if he stopped, she'd think something had happened to him.
He kept it up. The days rolled by -- 20 days of panda facts... 40 days... 60 days... His will was endless.
Soon, she started sending him panda pictures.
So, 100 days of panda facts went by, and on the 100th day, the saga had to come to an end.
And he was never heard from again.
