Like the north east coast i should say. and uh it was just this kind of a. surreal feeling i’m like man like what. am i doing that was like my thought. press i’m like. what am i doing right now i’m traveling. around checking in out of hotels going. on dates living it up having all these. fun experiences like this is the life. and i just knew i couldn’t take it for. granted so it was really cool feeling um. but that is that’s how i felt with the. 25th date and this is obviously the 25th. it’s not the 25th episode because we. have some others in there this is. episode 27 but. uh yeah we’re talking about my 25th date. in delaware and so me and uh lexi like. he’s an awesome date of mind we had a. lot of fun in del oro we bar hopped at. all kinds of different places and we. talked about all the things we did in um. or when i bring her on the podcast so i.
Won’t get too in the weeds of it myself. um some things that happened to me in. delaware aside from that is i did get a. story done on me in their like online. paper on the online article. uh talking about me and my journey and. what me and my date did in delaware and. how uh it went from this virtual dating. side because of covet to on the road and. so they did a story on me with that. which is linked to my website if you. guys want to check that at all and then. also delaware was actually going to be. my 26th state and date but i actually. had to move some things because maryland. was supposed to be 25 delaware is. supposed to be 26 but maryland was such. a hassle for me to try and get a date. for. so i literally had to just like leave. maryland go to delaware and then come. back to maryland after delaware and and.
Be like okay i have you know my last. shot here a couple days i got before i. head to new york or where yeah before i. head to new york i’m like i gotta make. this work and so um yeah so that was. kind of a little mix up there but was. able to make it work was able to go on. my deck date with lexi which uh we had a. really fun time and uh let’s let’s bring. her on right now to talk about our our. experience so here we go. all right ladies and gentlemen now on. the podcast is my 25th date halfway done. we are now talking to lexi from delaware. lexi what’s up. hello. thank you for having me. oh absolutely how are you how was your. summer. good i had a great summer i live at the. beach so delaware beaches is nice how. was your summer. it was it was good it went uh it went. quick oh i when you say you live at the. beach.

We had some crab dip there too right. oh yeah the crab dip was so good. was super bad. honestly i know when i was like when i. was thinking about what we did there i. was like we had we had something and i. was like oh we had crab dip and oh my. gosh that made me so hungry i was like i. need some because seafood by by the. coast out there is super good. oh yeah and we grab everything but um. our diet was crab dip any fruit in our. cocktails and gummies that day that’s. what we ate that you’re you’re 100 right. that was our complete diet of the day. and i remember so many people like. before i got to delaware and after i was. in delaware so many people were like you. have to go to starboard i hope you went. to starboard make sure you go to like. it’s like such an iconic place why is. that. so um dewey is like the party.

Like oh you probably just didn’t have. that spicy one but then i remember i. gave you the exact one i had you ate it. you didn’t even make a face you were. like yeah. i remember them being really gross but i. didn’t think they were like. they were yeah they were so terrible. literally like i wanted to just spit. those out as soon as i had them like oh. oh it’s so. right but the sharks were bomb. yeah oh yeah. because i love the sharks we got the. little pizza one too remember it was so. cute. the pizza one the pizza gummy yeah it. was like. it was like a little piece of um it was. a gummy. it was like one of those pizza gum. was cute super super good we got we got. something like covered in chocolate do. you remember what that was. yeah oh it was the swedish fish. we had a chocolate covered swedish fish. yeah. that’s baller i forgot what that tastes.
Like but i feel like it was super oh. yeah that’s right yeah we did yeah that. was so oh. heck yeah. big fan one thing i was super impressed. with lexi is i feel like you knew like. everyone i feel like you just knew like. that whole town or that whole state. um. i feel like uh delaware is a small state. and you either like you know you just. once you make a connection it just it’s. a spider web. god so. i just. yeah because a lot of people um actually. ask about you in delaware can you. believe that that you’re you’re kind of. a celebrity here. um they’ll say they’ll be like oh my god. i remember when you brought him here how. is he they actually uh some people think. that we date that like we actually date. and they’re like oh that’s hilarious. so yeah that’s i think it’s cute i’m. like yeah he’s doing great i totally.
Lied to him like yeah he’s great that’s. so funny well yeah i just feel like. every place we went in it was like it. was like oh hey brad oh hey chad how we. doing oh victoria what’s up oh it was. just like it was like everywhere i was. like i was like this is this is cool. like you you know people and like. connections and and serving us and. things like that so that that was. something that was really cool i i felt. and then we uh then now you can come. back if you know who you are. oh yeah oh yeah exactly well you did say. that there was a group at the end of the. night kind of surrounding us like. watching us because they heard that. because like you and i said like i hit. some sort of milestone or something and. i can’t remember what it was i want to. say it was like maybe i hit because i. mean you were my 25th date so i was.
Officially halfway done and maybe i hit. like 200 000 followers or something i’m. not sure like i. that’s like the closest thing. yeah. and that’s the closest thing i can think. of what it was but we did shots with. like a couple people because of that. we’re like oh my god we hit this like uh. so. once people kind of realize that like. oh my god like who is this and then. we’re like oh 50 states 50 dates and. just talking about it and we were really. socializing with just like the guests. there at that venue we were at so like. everybody kind of started like at the. end of the night i kind of felt like it. was awkward i felt like me and you were. here and there’s two exit ways out and. there was just people like down them. like kind of just like staring like what. is going on and i’m just like hello. that’s that’s hilarious that’s that’s so.
We had a little we had a little. paparazzi we were the popular crew in. town i seriously like i had i had a lot. of fun and i had no idea what to expect. in delaware because it’s like literally. before i helped out the podcast you you. will hands down be the only state i did. this for but i literally looked at the. map again and i was like where is. delaware again like how is it because. because it’s just like it was so oddly. placed like in how i had to drive. because i remember i had to backtrack a. little i like had to go to i had to go. to you and then i had to go back to. maryland because marilyn was being such. a pain in the pain in the ass for me to. get a date and so i remember it was like. it was so weird um getting over there. and everything and positioning it but i. had a i had a lot of fun i thought.
Delaware was really cool and it was. popping and it was lively and so i i. don’t know i that’s that’s how i felt. about it how did you think it all went. the date the day was fun i i thank you. um i think you are right and i did take. you to a lot of places like that i. do know people at so i feel like if you. did have a different date you would have. had a completely different experience um. maybe you would have dated someone from. up north and you guys wouldn’t have gone. to the beach but i’m such a beach girl. that i was like we have to go to the. beach and i live at the beach. so you could have went somewhere like. more like metro. versus because delaware is kind of like. beaches and then in the middle is like. um. the state capital which is dover and. then everything up north is like all. businesses and like restaurants and.
Stuff. so. i think it was fun i mean like i think. our date was very casual very laid back. but you could do that like on a tuesday. and be okay. oh 100 100 how have you felt like being. part of this since the very beginning. being one of my virtual dates to now on. the podcast to being involved in like. the group chats and all the other girls. and stuff like how has it felt for you. to be the delaware date in 50 days 50. states. um so. i’m delaware and no one knows where. delaware is no one knows what we do in. delaware like i i look at our group. chats and stuff and the girls are doing. such fun things and they have such fun. clubs and stuff to go to and i’m just. sitting there like. okay. that’s fun. you know what i mean you got to give. yourself some credit i had i had a lot. of fun and i thought like it was cool.
Like it was like cool how we went to. these different spots that had like. these different aesthetics and like. settings to them it wasn’t just like oh. me and you went bar hopping with your. friends and we went to like and we. stayed in the same bar all day or we. went to like two bars and just like like. i don’t know like you showed me these. different places and around the town and. the beach and i thought that like i i. thought it was eventful and i thought it. was really fun i liked it you got to. give yourself more kudos. yeah and like the places i took you to i. did take you to like my personal. favorite spots like. crooked hammock like have a drink set in. the sun like have a little fire pit like. it’s so adorable and then even going to. starboard like that’s an iconic place. like i told you like you have to go to.
Starboard we have to drink at starboard. that’s fun even though we didn’t really. experience the night aspect of it you. gotta come one time like there’s a band. at starboard everywhere is that people’s. fake ids that people have taken over. that’s hilarious. are just covered. in fake ids you we go to purple parrot. and the walls are just covered in one. dollar bills. yeah no 100 and i thought that was a. really cool setup like that alley and. everything like the little bar window. and like the tables and like i thought. that was just super neat how it was all. how it was all aligned that was and you. could just like walk in from off the. street and just like go there it was. sweet yeah and delaware because the. cocoon uh. to go cubs. or to go drinks to go cocktails are. legal so that’s why. everywhere we go we could have gotten a.
Drink to go. yep yeah that’s that’s so awesome. because there’s literally only like. three or four places like that in the. whole us that like you can have to go. drink so sweet that i’m glad you brought. that up i forgot about that that’s sweet. that delaware is is one of them and and. another thing that uh obviously i was. saying you got to give yourself or i. want to give you kudos for our date and. everything but i also want to give you. huge kudos because i feel like this is. very overlooked and i like don’t bring. this up at all but uh when. in the initial phases of the whole 50. dates thing when all the girls were. getting into the group chat. lexi you handled like that whole 50 uh. like all of you guys are changing. sweatshirts like all my dates exchange. sweatshirts and you were like the you. were like the boss lady behind that you.
Like you were like organizing it and. like helping out the new girls who. joined and stuff like i felt like you. were you were like controlled that whole. thing which was so cool i give you like. mad props for that. it was cool because i got to like other. than the new girls so like the girls. that you’ve recently added since the. trip i obviously like if i’ve talked to. them. i bet they’re beautiful and gorgeous but. like every girl is beautiful and. gorgeous in their own way and getting. even like hey what’s your birthday oh my. god you’re a capricorn no way i love. capricorns okay what’s your address look. like like even those small interactions. i had with them because it’s 50 girls. like i i personally do not want to talk. to 50 girls every day yeah um but like. the small interactions i had of like. organizing that i like everyone making.
