Good thing he invented Facebook, otherwise Zuckerberg would be one of the most awkward dudes ever to wingman for. Via Business Insider:
Mark Zuckerberg met his wife Priscilla Chan in college at a fraternity party. They were both in line for the bathroom.
Zuckerberg then took her on a date. Chan recalled the line he dropped on her to “Today’s” Savannah Guthrie:
“On our first date, he told me that he’d rather go on a date with me than finish his take-home midterm,” she said.
This is maybe the lamest pick-up line in the history of all pick-up lines.
It gets weirder. Zuck started to play the Face Smash card while trying to woo a girl. You think she’d be impressed why how much of an Internet creeper you are?
When they met, Chan says Zuckerberg thought he might get kicked out of school for a prank he pulled (the prank was likely “Face Mash,” a hot-or-not for students on campus), so she thought he was kind of a slacker.
But hey! You’re married now, so no sweat. Live and learn.
