Jake Moreno claims he has "0 skills" when it comes to asking a girl out. So when he wanted to ask a girl out, he turned to his philosophy religion professor, Shannon Atkinson, for help.
Atkinson told BuzzFeed that Moreno approached her after class and asked her if Aristotelian Rhetoric could be used to ask a woman out. The Aristotle Rhetoric is a triangle connecting logos, pathos and ethos. Basically, it consists of logic, emotions and trust.
Atkinson said the two only met for five minutes. “My only real input into this whole thing was having him really appeal to the pathos part of the triangle and be sensitive and cognizant of the ‘details’ of her life situation, as often in rhetoric of this type that is what is going to put him over the top, so to speak,” she said
Jake took her advice and sent the text to a girl named Hannah. The text and the Aristotle Rhetoric worked! Jake secured himself a date with Hannah and even proved that he put in the work.
