Pick-up lines work

I did something I haven’t done in ages the other day.  I used a pick-up line on a man! I couldn’t let the opportunity to flirt slip away so I had to act fast.  I was at the opening gala for the Atlanta Film Festival last week when I noticed a very handsome guy.  Once I saw no ring (or tan line for one!), I shimmied his way after grabbing a second glass of Pinot aka liquid courage.   I said something about how he looked like a good challenge I could get into. I can’t even remember the exact words.  It didn’t matter that much!

It was enough to make him chuckle and say something like, “Oh really” and we spent the next couple of minutes chatting it up. I really should pick men up more often, it’s scary at first but getting a great response is an adrenaline rush! Ladies, do you use pick up lines on men? What has worked for you? Does it bother you when men approach you with a pick up line? What if it’s a really great one?

Guys, do you ever get approached by women in public? Do they use pick up lines on you? What is the best line a woman has used on you?

He stopped me as I was getting in the elevator. Funniest thing – he was actually holding a bouquet of roses that were obviously for someone else.

kimmie, if you are around, I sent that email to my brother and his crazy behind said he used two of those lines Saturday at the pharmacy. He asked the cashier if the water he was buying was diet water and he asked her where was the fitting room to try on the box condoms he was buying. He said the look on her face was priceless.

This old ass white dude asked me out at the airport a few weeks ago
I guess he wanted to check an AA off before he kick the bucket

@lurker_1 ignore my comment I was thinking about some pervert with some hard candy in his pocket trying to entice a child. It is always dirty when someone old enough to be your daddy hits on you. Unless that is your style.

DreamsMat, IMO at 17 a child is sent to school with the teachers being authority. Adults. The teacher should know to do better and should do better.

In a university situation while the professor is the instructor there is no adult versus child situation going on. The class could be made up of 19-52 year olds. In a high school all classes are common age peers.

Yeah the 17 year old should be dealt with however I would take issue with the teacher more. When trusted in that position a teacher should know to tell a child to take the rearend somewhere and sit it down. Stay in a child’s place.

I remember being in high school and some of the girls sleeping with certain teachers but it didn’t make it right if the girls came on to the teacher. There was this one teacher Mr. Grayson that some of the girls tried flirting with but he wasn’t having it. If he knew to do right the others did also.

Okay… on a serious note… religious nut-jobs need to get a f@#%ing life. It’s a cartoon, @ssholes!. A f@#$ing cartoon! Doesn’t it seem a bit odd to claim to worship some all powerful god, and yet he/she/it/you feel threatened by a f@#$ing cartoon?

ya’ll would be surprised at , the code of ethics has to be presented nowadays, it has to include “social networking” i.e. facebook, myspace etc….inappropriate contact with students, or recently graduated students, i was like dang. There is zero tolerance in my district.

I’m Swiss, it’s not just a cartoon, it’s the writer. I hate that show and would never allow one my kids to watch it. The writer is just standing behind animated form to say what he wants to say.

I fell asleep one night with the television on the Cartoon Network. When I woke up in the middle of the night the cartoon on there showed this guy get beheaded. Certainly not something kids are to be watching. Hence it being on after hours. But just because it was a cartoon did not make it less gruesome and I felt just as eerie seeing it as I would have had it been a regular show on HBO or Showtime.

It’s the writing that makes it what it is, not the all the beautiful bright colors of animation.

I knew girls in high school, college, and grad. school who had affairs with the instructors. Some of my high school teachers were in their early 20’s, not much older than 17 themselves. I agree with you though…you have to exercise better judgement. When I was in undergrad. I used to teach the labs, and when I was in grad school I used to teach the undergrads. I was in the same age group (often younger) as the students I taught, but I never crossed that line, and there were plenty of opportunities to do so.

@ Carlito — Yeah, I love that show — I’ll have to make sure to Tivo that episode next time it airs…

I swear, though… These psycho-religious f@#$-faces really p!$$ me off. They’re not “threatening” anyone, they’re just “warning” them that if they’re not careful, they’ll end up like Theo van Gogh, who had his head nearly cut off & a knife buried in his chest for making a movie that hurt Mohammed’s wittle feewings — oh, and here’s a picture of exactly what happened to that guy, in case the description is not provocative enough. Oh, and by the way, here are the addresses where any nut-jobs reading this can find them. Oh and here’s an audio recording of another Islamic f@#$-face calling for the assassination of anyone who “defames” Mohammed.

But religion is all about peace. Whatever…

Maybe we atheists should call for a “jihad” of our own… This world would certainly be a more pleasant place to live without dealing with all the BS religion brings to the table. And hey, the next life is where it’s at anyway, right?

DreamsMat, I always say it’s a control issue when grown folks prey on kids. I think about my oldest son in high school he was among the few boys that were tall and had the whiskers growing in already. He had a teacher that was quite young at one time. I am just glad that little girl across had his nose wide open and he didn’t get involved with a grown woman.

My husband has a cousin is 28 with a girlfriend that is almost 40. He says since he was about 15 he always dated women 3 years or older.

I really doubt that.

The religious has just as much right to vent their views just like the non-religious. They have the same right to believe just like have to not believe.

Raqi- I read your 3:38 – hillarious! I also agree with your 3:44. These teachers messing with these kids has gotten out of hand. Sure, it’s been happening since the beginning of time & maybe just being publicized more. Either way, the teacher is in a position of trust, don’t matter if they are a few years older than the student & the student looks grown.

Cartoons were originally for adults. I like South Park, ATHF, Metalopcalypse, Ugly Americans. I like the whole Adult Swim line up.

Raqi — No, not at all. That just makes it all the more ri-di-cu-lous to me. Then again, as should be pretty apparent by now, I think all religion is not only total BS, but actually the root cause of much of the evil crap that happens in this world. So I’d personally prefer it if they’d all just take the express to the afterlife and let those of us who aren’t so sure what the next life will bring have a shot a making the best we can of this life… JMO

Religion is generally a control tactic and is a key strategy that all imperialist nations have used to acquire power. Is there any surprise that churches are 75% women…men exerting their control over the female congregation. Yes, I’m generalizing, so if it does not apply to you in particular do not be offended.

SWISS…I do believe that religion brings out the ugly in folks because everyone wants to force what they believe on others. Who is to say any religion is right or wrong? No one knows for sure. We believe because we are taught to do so. Only some people try to explore to see what feels right to them in their hearts and minds. I can believe in God and worship without believing everything because Pastor said so….or because the man written book says so. Of course some Bible thumper would have a problem with that. But I don’t care what they think. My salvation is none of their business…nor is my personal relationship with God. I am open minded to a lot of things. I think you should believe or not believe in who/what you want to. Why is it my concern what happens to others when they croak? I have my own soul to worry about.

I agree. A 17 boy having a whammie put on him by some older (he thinks hot) teacher will blow his mind. The same rings true for some old cat stroking a young kitty telling her all she wants to hear, all the while knowing it’s all an effort for the kill. Just makes me ill. Every 17 year old, no matter how much they’ve done or not, no matter how grown they THINK they are, are as green as grass, green as cucumbers. They don’t know they’re the prey because they haven’t lived enough to have the experience or have exercised enough experience via living and life. I say fry an old dude or chick preying on a youngster. As for the youngster, they don’t get off that easy…handle them accordingly.

Thank God for religion. The prayers of the righteous man availeth much. While you may not have knowledge, a righteous man keeping and doing the will of God preserves this ungodly world. Don’t knock what you don’t know or the effects of what you don’t understand.

It’s more prevalent than you would think. I remember when I was in college and Usher came to the AUC. He was only 15 then, but it was unbelievable how many of those 20 year old college girls were swooning over him. It’s a crazy game out there.

Actually, I’m not really atheist myself, SexyCool — agnostic, really. I just don’t know, basically, and I get really annoyed by folks who are so sure their fairy tale is the right fairy tale & everybody else is going to burn… particularly when the fairy tales are so utterly absurd. And this includes most of my own family, as well — I was brought up in a very fundamentalist baptist church & force-fed the whole spiel for my entire childhood. And obviously, I was speaking in hyperbole in my earlier rant, but I really do think the world would be a better place without organized religion. “Spirituality,” fine. But when people start getting together & making plans around what “god” wants us to do, bad things happen.

Oh, and yes, Mrs. Swiss feels the same way about organized religion, though she is probably a bit less doubtful of the idea of a “god” than I am.
