This is the first in a series of user-submitted stories when DOWN was still Bang With Friends.
So we have all been there before: you have a beautiful French foreign exchange student living on your couch, you really hit it off with her, and you are thinking to yourself, “Man, I could take her out to a nice steak dinner and call her the next day.“ Then, out of nowhere, bam! Cock-blocked by your girlfriend. Well that was exactly my situation 3 months ago. I was about to give up but then I heard of Bang With Friends.
Next thing I know I am miraculously single. At first, I cautiously clicked a handful of my lady friends. I grew bolder and bolder, then decided to go all in, giving myself Carpel Tunnel Syndrome from clicking every single lady on the page, including this French Fox. I had no idea if she was into me – in fact, I thought I was deep in the friend zone.
Just a day later, that typically elusive bastard Cupid delivered big time – I got a Bang request from this beautiful and impossible to understand French girl. I immediately called her up and set up a date (acting like I had not checked my email to see the bang notification).
Things weren’t entirely smooth sailing, though. My ship was sunk 3 days in a row by a winemaker, a dumb ass buddy, and a bachelorette party. But then, on the 4th day, I got just drunk enough to overcome all odds make a move. It was epic: everything was going perfectly … and then I blacked out hard (can’t say that’s unusual).
I woke up naked on a futon in the house I sublet to a stranger. Lo and behold, lying there next to me was that same beautiful and beautifully naked French girl. We quickly gathered our clothes, put the hide-a-key back, and did the walk of pride together. Now, the last thing I wanted was for her to think this was a one time thing or move back into the friend zone, so when we made it back to my place I made another move. In hindsight (and the hindsight was damn good), it was a very wise decision. We partied and banged all over California until she had to return to the motherland.
