Guy asks attached Hooters girl out -- and really ends up on a date with her and BF

A guy named Wesley tried to ask a Hooters girl, Alex, out on Facebook -- not knowing that she was already attached.

Her boyfriend Ryan jokingly responded, "Can I come too?"

Wesley then privately messaged Ryan to apologise and said that he genuinely did not know that Alex was already taken.

That was when things took a most unusual turn as the two guys started arranging a date for real.

Ryan, who posted screenshots of the conversation on Facebook, even shared a photo showing the trio on their date at a Japanese restaurant as discussed.

He wrote, "This may be the funniest thing that ever happened in my life!!"

The post has since gone viral online, with over 16,000 likes and more than 56,000 shares.

Well, all isĀ fair in love and war. Plus sometimes, a newfound friendship is just as priceless as a passionate romance.
