Is this blog for real?

We've gotten a lot of comments about whether or not this blog is real, fake, fact, or fiction... Calvin thinks it's silly for me to even respond, however, it seems that sometimes the comments that we get are only about if the blog is real, and not about the actual experiences we're sharing.

Is this blog real? Yes, it is. It is as real as we can make it while remaining anonymous. There really are two writers, both male. There really is a Bachelor Pad. There really are roommates. There really are girls who like us, and date us... who probably wouldn't be happy with how honest we're being in this blog. The thoughts, theories, and strategies presented here are what we think about the world, our role in it, and how that all ties into us having a testimony of the gospel as commonly understood within the Mormon church.

When Calvin and I decided to write this, we wanted an outlet where we could be 100% honest, tell our story, show what it is really like, and have fun at the same time. We want to do all that without having to deal with ANY uncomfortable confrontations arising from it. We change the things that we think will give away our identities. This blog could not exist without us being mostly anonymous. Some of the names and some of the places have been changed, but the truth shines through.

So yes, this blog is based on actual events and experiences. It's as real as any movie based on a true story. That being said, just like at the end of each of those movies:

The events depicted in this blog are fictitious. Any similarity to any person living or dead is merely coincidental.

I definitely can't afford to be sued for saying some girl is a bee-otch or that she has a very poorly located mole on her face. Even though my car is 15 years old and the door doesn't open all the time, and I couldn't be sued for much anyway. So love the blog or hate it, say it's fake or real or whatever, Calvin doesn't care, and after this, I wont either.

Enjoy.

Hey, thanks for responding to the accusers. Good to see you standing up for yourselves, it proves that you're legit. No more accusations from me!

Wooohoooo! So, what happened with Andrea?

From the title of this post, I thought you were going to say it was all a bunch of bull and I was going to be SO disappointed. Glad to see it's all real and raw, down and dirty. ;)

I'm gonna be honest. You just blew it. Seriously. I'd take this post down ASAP.

Taren said...

Definitely an interesting blog. Quite entertaining to read. Always fun to know what is happening in someone's head.. especially guys.

you know what surprises me?
the fact that any girls actually like you.

Heidi said...

Yeah. I'm choosing to believe that this blog is largely a joke, but if it IS real, y'all need to shape up and stop being such jerks.

One of the things that I have a hard time believing is how much one of you (can't remember which?) rates their own attractiveness.

Maybe it's a guy thing, but I hardly ever rate myself or other people. I just have other things to do than wonder if my blue eye's bump me up to a seven or not.

One of the other things that I find weird is none of you are in school, or have mentioned it, despite being RMs. Does anyone else find this odd?

I can't decide if it's real or not, if it is, I can't believe what morons the girls who date you are. (Who makes out on a first date? What happened to making sure guys actually like your personality first?) If it isn't props on so many reader.

i just happened to stumble upon your blog.
i don't know if you read your comments.
but it was the best stumble of my life.
i emailed a link to my husband at about 1:00pm.
he just called me.
(almost two hours later)
we both have not taken our eyes off of the screen. this is magic. i've never laughed so hard, or secretly felt so bad for once acting like one (or all) of the many girls on your blog.

thank you for being real. i am in love with this blog. if you had a fan club i'd try to be president.

I have been seeing your little buttons on blogs and thought whf....dudes who blog. Not only dudes but LDS dudes? well your blog is disgusting but I love it. you guys must score a lot of action due to this blog. smartest move of your life

Anonymous said...

It's really sad when a NON-LDS person thinks you're disgusting. ^ Maybe that should tell you guys that you need to make some changes.

just glanced at your blog - no need to read further. Your annonymous bc you know you're thoughts (& language) are wrong. I was born, raised and joined "the church" in Clondalkin, Dublin, Ireland and honestly am quite ashamed that you were missionaries there. Definitely not the calibre of elders that converted my family. Time to grow up I think.....?

I only wish this WAS a joke. Thankfully, I just married a wonderful man who is exactly the opposite of you. Even so, I feel sorry for the other girls out there that even come in contact with you. I guess I need to count my blessings today.

Here's a question for you...why would you have Mormon in the title of your blog if you are only going to make the LDS church look bad? It's not necessary--no one cares which religion you belong to. So, why would you even go there? I don't believe it's real anyway; I think this blog is run by someone who is not a member and is determined to make the LDS Church look bad. So, be proud of yourselves, I guess.

However, there is high internet access on the phone and there are all possibilities of a virus attack on the phone.
Both the displays are easily among the best, with the i -
Phone 4 marginally leading the way in terms of display quality and
the Galaxy S winning the size battle. It will show you a list of Active Applications and you can
press End to shut them down individually or press End All to close everything.

But you can also enjoy it through another innovations feature of Playbook.
The Black - Berry Playbook price has not yet been revealed but it
is thought that it could be up to £100 cheaper than
the equivalent i - Pad model, which will make
it a very attractive proposition indeed once the Black -
Berry Playbook release date arrives. One of the first Black - Berry smartphones to feature Black -
Berry OS 6, the Torch has been a breath of fresh air to the declining brand.

However, with a mobile phone, you will have to be acutely
aware of your surroundings. These data plans will enable seamless voice and
video calls with high resolution, excellent sound clarity and no lag on
hand-held gadgets. You may be able to find systems that
are priced at a much lower level than that but you want to be careful of counterfeit systems that may
not work as well as you would expect them to.

Sales of the Kindle Fire are going better than expected.

The Nexus S, however, has flash while some variants, such as the Samsung Vibrant
and Captivate, of the Samsung Galaxy S do not.
It's just a minor annoyance, because the tablet can fit in one hand, and therefore always stay directed to the user.

Mobile gadgets are becoming our main source of information.
With release of the handset comes Samsung Galaxy S3 deals.
99 for a 5 GB limit, and 5 cents for every additional MB that is used.
