    Aziz Ansari Tried Hitting On Blake Lively Over Texts — It Didn't Really Work Out

    Let this be a lesson: if someone isn't texting you back, move on.

    Aziz Ansari stopped by The Howard Stern Show this week and reminisced about the incredibly awkward time he met Miss Blake Lively.

    After meeting her at an event and briefly chatting about a new restaurant called "Animals," they ended up exchanging numbers, he claims he sent Blake the following text:

    No response.

    :/

    Aziz then ran into her at The Met Ball a few days later. And after seeing her hanging out with Karl Lagerfeld, sent the following text:

    BuzzFeed

    No response.

    So naturally, he tried hitting her up again to see "if she was partying" that night. Being the brave soul that he is, he texted her *yet again*:

    To which Aziz realized he was sadly "questioning technology, like 'hopefully this is her number' and that's just so sad."

    Been there, Aziz.

    But! His persistence paid off, as Blake *finally* texted him back that night:

    By that point, Aziz was ~elated~ to receive a text back, and decided it was wise to text her AGAIN:

    By fate, he ran into Blake that night, but she left to fly to North Carolina for a movie. So, being the brilliant man he is, he decided to text her again the next day, because why not??

    BuzzFeed

    No response.

    :(

    Maybe she doesn't like delicious food??

    If those texts made you want to scream out "STOP, AZIZ. SAVE YOURSELF" and cringe in pain, then this last text he sent will crush your soul:

    "The last message I sent her was on Dec. 17, 2011, and I just write: 'Happy holidays!' and then there's no response."

    It hurts. It REALLY hurts.

    The whole thing is make-you-want-to-smash-your-phone awkward, but let's be honest: YOU HAVE BEEN THERE. We've all been there.
