John Jay: It’s the Flavor of Love

We’ve received several photos over the last half an hour of the now infamous John Jay Dinner Date. There are reports of a “table cloth, doilies, roses, and candles” currently being enjoyed by Columbia’s most romantic couple.

Faces have been hidden to protect the adorable.

UPDATE 7:28 PM: Our couple has given us permission to unmask their faces. Their identities will be revealed after the jump.

Why look, it’s Amber Ha and Daniel Gustche, both CC ’12!

    @sees through lies …they’re ugly, aren’t they, bwog.

    1. ... says:

      @... Ugly? That’s a little too harsh…

      I mean, they’re not hot but they’re pretty good by Columbia standards especially

  • man, says:

    @man, and I thought a proposal was going down

  • hmm says:

    @hmm did they set it up themselves?

  • aww says:

    @aww that’s so cute! it’s silly but cute.

  • omg says:

    @omg thats sooooooo cute!

  • shut up says:

    @shut up cuz amber is so cute!

  • haha says:

    @haha cute.

  • awwww says:

    @awwww Columbia can be cute sometimes

  • dddd says:

    @dddd Yes, they set it up themselves.

    She told me that ‘he couldn’t afford anything else’.

  • haha says:

    @haha talk about cheap…hope he wasn’t running low on meals too

  • one says:

    @one I bet you don’t even have the balls to post your hideous picture on bwog.

  • it's not says:

    @it's not about the money, it’s about the effort. You people are all tools.

    1. effort says:

      @effort exactly…could have made an effort to have enough money for a decent date

  • come on says:

    @come on people, it’s nice. Just because we the guy decided not to go to some fancy restaurant does not mean that it’s not a decent date.

  • or atleast... says:

    @or atleast... get john jay take out and set up a romantic dinner in your room. this is just weird.

  • woooww... says:

    @woooww... well, i hope he swiped her in…

  • ohhlala says:

    @ohhlala dan is getting some as we speak

  • ohh th 12s! says:

    @ohh th 12s! how nice.

  • you are all fools says:

    @you are all fools This is just a cynical prank. You are giving it more attention than it deserves. They aren’t on a real date. This is just some dada absurdist ploy.

  • puhlease says:

    @puhlease freshman romances are crap, the guys are too young to realize they’re not gay yet
    they’ll be bored of each other in a week

  • team asia says:

    @team asia Amber looks so juicy….hope things went well….kekekeke

  • cool says:

    @cool their honeymoon is going to be in casa italiana

  • Clearly, says:

    @Clearly, wayy too much effort for an asian girl for a white guy!

  • Curious says:

    @Curious Knowing that they were going to hasve a date in John Jay, why did they have to dress up?

    1. that says:

      @that would probably raise the question of the table cloth, candles, and flowers as well.

  • Awwwwwwwwwwww! says:

    @Awwwwwwwwwwww! Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

  • omg adorable says:

    @omg adorable all the people who are being bitches suck.

  • amber! says:

    @amber! you guys are the cutesttt!

  • one time says:

    @one time when i was a freshman i got stoned and ate SO MUCH in John Jay. It was the equivalent of TWO WHOLE DINNERS. BUT I WAS SO HUNGRY I ATE THEM BOTH!!!!

  • !!! says:

    @!!! Points for originality and willingness to stand out. No points for attractiveness in this photo. Facebook stalking shortly.

  • Silly Rabbit says:

    @Silly Rabbit im so damn lonely not even animal planet does it for me anymore.

    1. oh man! says:

      @oh man! That’s because you’re not watching whale wars!

  • This says:

    @This has gone from strange to stranger. Kind of a cute idea for the date. No clue how we went from a romantic dinner at John Jay to using Discovery as erotica, but I guess that’s Columbia for ya.

  • AHH says:


    its so wrong its right.

  • You know what says:

    @You know what I would have been pretty happy if a guy did this for me during my Freshman year. Way to go, Dan!

  • OKAY. says:

    @OKAY. Can’t people see that this is a cute, fun, inoffensive date? And also OBVIOUSLY tongue-in-cheek? No one actually thinks that John Jay is a swanky place to hit up for a nice meal. Kudos to them for having a sense of humor and making the best of limited campus dining options.

    And also, people who are complaining about their ugliness: not only is that absurd, but you’re only making yourselves look more like the jaded, disenchanted, and snivelingly self-loathing. Calm down, and appreciate that people are making an effort to find a way out of the November doldrums.

  • That! says:

    @That! So. Fricking. Cute.

  • Really Nice says:

    @Really Nice This picture lifts my spirits in a completely non-sarcastic, genuine way. I wish I were that romantic.

  • SEAS '09 says:

    @SEAS '09 I’m confused about the claims of their unattractiveness. The guy is clearly in great shape and handsome, and the girl, smoking. Both sharply-dressed. Why attack someone anonymously, in a forum you know they’ll read? Cute date, guys.

    1. the answer is says:

      @the answer is because I am bitter, and because so is my heart.

  • kekeke says:

    @kekeke comment #22 makes me laugh. but if you ask me, i’d say this is just boring and pretentious. … ;)

  • ugh says:

    @ugh glad to know white guys with asian fetishes are tacky as hell. makes me feel better for not being “exotic” enough for guys at this school, even though i’m mixed.

    1. @ ugh says:

      @@ ugh Being asian doesn’t make you “exotic” at columbia honey.

      1. sure says:

        @sure to white guys it sure as hell does. i always thought being puerto rican made one exotic, but apparently it doesn’t here.

        1. one says:

          @one date with an asian does *not* a fetish make. for example, I’ve dated a significant other who was italian, but that doesn’t mean I have an Italian fetish. Instead of making it a racial/ethnic issue, consider this: it might just be you. The you-w/o-labels you.

          1. funny says:

            @funny you obviously don’t know me, and have certainly not seen me.

        2. Exotic says:

          @Exotic Only a Nuyorrican, or a Puerto Rican who did not grow up in PR would say that being Puerto Rican is not exotic. Which leads me to believe that you did not grow up in the island, and should therefore stop complaining about not being deemed exotic.

  • cute says:

    @cute kudos for having the guts! i would have never. much love

  • ... says:

    @... I think it’s fantastic and ballsy. any girl that has a sense of humor to do something like this automatically scores better than all the people bitching about it anonymously

  • I have a theory says:

    @I have a theory that there is just one giant douchebag who writes all of the douchey comments on bwog, youtube, and all other realms of pathetic, anonymous, self-loathers the world-round.

    [… he is also obviously a mad scientist with the capacity to trick respective servers w/ multiple IDs, and an infinite number of variations on the “pwning n00bs”, etc.]

  • p.s. says:

    @p.s. cute/funny date – props to you, however it was intended

  • siiigh says:

    @siiigh i’m so jealous!!!

    also: they’re both smokin’. lookin’ good, my friends.

  • cute says:

    @cute origiinal and sweet. obviously not a super serious date – just something fun! i knew a girl whose friends did a “candlelight dinner at mcdonalds” when they were in high school.. a bunch of them dressed up, got a tablecloth & plastic flowers, and went to mickey d’s!

  • facebook says:

    @facebook according to facebook, daniel is married to another girl!!! i sense scandal

  • i think says:

    @i think they’re cute!! esp for columbia

  • Team Fab says:

    @Team Fab O-M-F-G this is soooooo sweet….i wish someone would to this for me!!! EEEEEEEEEEEE

  • Much more Romantic says:

    @Much more Romantic Without the trays.

    Perhaps that was John Jay’s ulterior motive in removing them?

  • jaded senior says:

    @jaded senior wow, you guys are ridiculous… not only are they both good-looking, but this is unbelievably sweet (and brave)! sorry columbia’s sucked the joy out of you… we should be happy for them!

  • aaaaa says:

    @aaaaa an ugly white guy and a subpar asian girl. where have i seen something like that before? Oh, besides, ALL THE TIME. YELLOW FEVER.
