(WUFT) – When Jessica Flanagan’s stepfather found out she no longer had a date for the game, he asked for her permission to find her a date on Craigslist to use the extra ticket.
“I highly doubt anyone will seriously respond to it, so go for it,” Flanagan told him.
More than 300 applications came in — some of them complete with photos, resumes, cover letters and references — from men in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee.
Flanagan initially did not look at the ad, but when her stepfather told her on Tuesday that he already had about 50 emails, she decided to check it out.
“It was more in-depth than I thought, but he knows my criteria, and he did a really good job with it,” Flanagan said. “It was kind of embarrassing, but at the same time it was kind of funny.”
