Local Casanova Professes Love for Girlfriend with #EYJDK Flyers

A few days ago, Today Show host Matt Lauer tweeted, “Sounds like the creator of #EYJDK is a keeper! Enjoy your journey and best of luck.” Out of context, few out there probably had any idea what that meant. Except for two city lovebirds, and a handful of Twitter users.

It’s all related to a flyer we spotted taped to the lamp post at the northwest corner of Ludlow and Rivington. A local twenty-something Casanova celebrated the one-year anniversary with his girlfriend, and chose to broadcast his love in the public sphere with the following missive:

We will be making a year together on 4/29/13. I’ve known her for 13 years, since middle school! A synopsis of our story goes something like this: love at first sight –> she rejected me –> I bullied her because that’s how I thought you woo someone at the age of 11 –> she hated me for about 8 years –> I matured and we became best friends –> I started liking her again –> she friend zoned me for about 3 years –> she fell for me by finally seeing how awesome I really am –> she asked me out –> GOODBYE FRIEND ZONE!

So what is this flyer for? Well, I’ve shown her, but now I want to show the world I love her … or at least NYC for now. So I made 1,000 of these flyers and posted them Everywhere. So here’s the deal, if you could so kindly take a picture with (or just of) this flyer and post to Instagram, Twitter and tag #EYJDK, I would think you’re super awesome! I want to spread the word far and wide! I would also like to reach 160 photos. Why 160? 16 is her favorite number, but asking for 16 photos is lame. What’s EYJK? It means “Enjoy your journey Danny & Kristen.”

OH! Also, if anyone knows Matt Lauer, can someone ask him to tweet or take a photo too? I’m sure she would like that … she has this big celebrity crush on him.

Judging by the hash-tag alone, the flyers were indeed pasted everywhere as proclaimed.

The tub here made sense given […]
