There are funny pickup lines and sincere pickup lines, romantic pick up lines and lame pick up lines. Unfortunately I can’t remember which one I chose.” 64.
Here are some things that I immediately noticed upon returning to Washington DC after being away in Europe for twenty months: 1. These are girls who would be 7’s if they lost weight and purchased a beauty kit. The need for Americans to be constantly distracted with smartphones is a result of their perverse need to keep pace with whatever technological device Silicon Valley shits out.
Oftentimes I’d see a girl in a coffee shop or in a bar and say to myself, “Yeah, I’d bang her, but I wouldn’t approach her.” In some situations these girls actually do approach men, setting the stage for an easy one-night stand that you hope is not witnessed by anyone. I noticed that only blue-collar Mexicans on the bus are able to sit still without playing with their phone or MP3 player. There is no unifying culture, but everyone talks the same.
The next ten people you see can be from completely different backgrounds and styles, with no obvious pattern to their character, but the second they start talking it’s obvious they consume the same mass media. If I talk to a person it’s because I want to have sex with them or exchange information, but Americans view conversation as a means of entertaining themselves.
What’s the worst/weirdest date you’ve ever been on? I swore they hid in the closets, waiting to eat me. (Yes, stickers.) These things can be surprisingly fun to talk about. But it’s a much more fun way to phrase it, and it typically yields a better response. An awesome dating tip and are you okay with conversational pauses?
While talking about exes is generally a no-no, this question has yielded some amazing responses. I made a date with Rob-I-liked, and when I arrived at the bar… I had no choice but to sit it out, cursing the ambiguity of text messages. Mine is a toss up between a large hunk of cheddar cheese and a peanut butter cup.
