So this is a Bloomin' Onion.
This is my best friend Cate.
Cate's social media presence revolves around Outback and messing with men on tinder tbh
And then a fellow Outback fangirl chimed in on the whole affair
Update: that guy never did get Cate her Bloomin' Onion.
So she tried again...
...but this man could not take a hint.
Cate still didn't have her Bloomin' Onion.
Fast forward to this past Monday, January 2.
And then, finally...
And Cate realized that her previously-failed quest for a free Bloomin' Onion was due to 2016, because obviously.
So we made lunch plans.
And it really truly happened.
It was love at first bite.
Even the Florida Gators were happy for Cate and the Bloomin' Onion.
But the story didn't end there.
And Outback was ready to commit.
And then Cate almost got in an accident on our way home from the restaurant because she started crying again.
And I told Cate she needs to hold out for a man who makes her feel the way Outback does.
So Cate gave up her 102-day snap streak with a man later that day.
"It's so amazing. I just love Outback so much." -Cate, January 3, 2017
