  1. “I’ll buy you a donut.”
    Love this group of friends who totally should get their own TV show.

  2. It’s 4:30 in the morning in California right now. About thirty miles away is a 24-hour donut shop and I am seriously considering waking my person who has a driver’s license to go get donuts.

    Also, I am totally Taylor. I have two dating apps on my phone and can’t suck up the nerve to start any conversations. I need an Andy to show me how to people.

  3. ♥️ this and would totally sign up to an Andy how-to-live-your-best-and-sexiest-life seminar.

  4. I’m actually kind of surprised that Andy can be sincere when they want to be??? Also go Taylor! All I get on Tinder is 5 minute long convos before I’m ghosted (again) :P

    • Andy is THE MOST SINCERE when it comes to loving and supporting their friends. In everryyyy other way they are 100% not

  5. So that was YOU at the next table over watching my friend coach me through a Tindr interaction.

  6. Joining the crowd of people who totally relate to Taylor here. (Apologies to anyone who has ever sent me a message on a dating app.)

    Also Andy’s profile is fantastic. My only question is do the rose emojis stand for DSA or general romance or for something else?

  7. I feel like I would be like Taylor on tinder if I had one (but without a facebook its impossible to sign up so I guess I get to avoid the whole thing) ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  8. “You’re a cool and smart and very strange person” made me crack up. This is my favorite Grease Bats in awhile, I am such a Taylor, even when it comes to flirting with people I know.

  9. >_______________<
    You know what?! It's REALLY hard to stay committed to my veggie/fruit diet this week when I see yummies like these. DON'T tempt me….
