Man Who Posted 'Worst Thanksgiving Date Ever' Craigslist Ad Gets a Taker

If you find yourself without plans for Thanksgiving you might want to take some tips from Nick Schmidt of Texas, who not only found a girl to have Thanksgiving dinner with, but gets to be on his absolute worst behavior for the meal too. In fact, it's expected.


Schmidt was joking with his friends about his lack of holiday plans, when he decided to put up a facetious ad on Craigslist offering to be the worst Thanksgiving Day date ever for any woman who wanted to bring him home to her family and scare the bejesus out of them. Not surprisingly, this being Craigslist, he soon had a date.

His rather amusing ad, titled "Alone on Thanksgiving? Mad at your Dad?" read:

It's Thanksgiving. Want to skip that long, insulting conversation about how youre still single? About how your parents really want more grand children? Well, look no further!

I am a 28-year-old felon with no high school degree, and a dirty old van one year younger than me painted like Eddie Van Halen's guitar. I can play anywhere between the ages of 20 and 29 depending on if i shave. I'm a line cook and work late nights at a bar. If you'd like to have me as your stictly platonic date for Thanksgiving, but have me pretend to be in a very long or serious relationship with you, to torment your family, I'm game.

I can do these things, at your request:

- openly hit on other female guests while you act like you dont notice.

- start instigative discussions about politics and/or religion.

- propose to you in front of everyone.

- pretend to be really drunk as the evening goes on (sorry, i dont drink, but i used to. alot. too much in fact. i know the drill).

- Start an actual, physical fight with a family member, either inside or on the front lawn for all the neighbors to see.

- I require no pay but the free meal i will receive as a guest!

Is it any wonder that Schmidt got snapped up in no time? He told Huffington Post Live:

I got a real response the next day offering me to come to this girl's Thanksgiving get-together with her roommate and friends, and then go over to her parent's house, eat food, shoot guns, have a good time.

If this proves anything, it's that women do seem to love a bad boy. Especially if he can get under the skin of her parents. And even more so -- women adore a sense of humor. Guys, if you're funny, you can really get away with acting like a jackass and we'll still love you. (At least I think he was joking?)

I don't know about you, but this sounds a lot more interesting than the usual stuff-your-face-and-watch-football routine. In fact, I would love to accompany Schmidt to his date's home on T-day. Except that whole thing about shooting guns and fighting on the front law may not end so well.

Lucky for us, Schmidt plans to live Tweet the holiday at @nickyistaken. I'm totally looking forward to when Schmidt gets drunk, hits on his date's mom, and fires off a few rounds in the basement.
