Stupid dating tricks: Video Texts?

Guy spots girl in Starbucks. He gives her a some pick up line and manages to get the digits. He later texts her a video..something. Not sure what to call it but it got posted online and it went viral. Is it a promo? A trailer? A sex tape invitation?

Since he used Drake’s Hold On, We’re Going Home song while trying to do some weird sexy hand peek-a-boo maneuver, people started an internet meme #DrakeHands. This is what dating has come to now? Not only do we NOT call and have a conversation, we moved beyond texting and now we are at video texts.

What would you do if someone sent you something like this? Would you be impressed? Creeped out?

What is the dumbest pick up line or gesture you have done to get someone’s attention? I once nearly hit a guy on his bike …intentionally. I don’t know WHAT I was thinking but he was going by fast and I couldn’t think of words, so I almost had an accident with him. So awful. Clearly he saw right through that!

Do you think stupid dating tricks like this ever pay off?

Regarding women asking for money: most men don’t mind paying a bill here and there if the female needs the help and she’s behaving accordingly. On the other hand, if he finds himself consistently paying her mortgage and car note etc., then he is truly the topic of today………..”STUPID DATING TRICKS”

Conversely, If you’re married and you do these things……It makes you a good husband. Go figure?

2C…women are more same sex competitors than dudes

Dudes don’t even do it

They want to outdress each other at work

If she can’t outdress shakira,she mean mugs and hates her

For us married dudes,we can’t mention that the next woman is a good cook,let alone that u ate her food and u absolutely enjoyed it.

U are denied puddy for the next 40 days and 40 nights.

Women are a special species

Of course not, kimmie. But, some women don’t know that nobody wants that person. You didn’t want them at that time, but you see someone else wanted him and now you’re interested.

@Leggs that is so true about interest. Some guy that was my fake work husband in my mind (we used to communicate via email and phone regarding negotiating fares), came from corporate and I was like he’s aight. But then everyone in the department was like did you see so and so from corporate he is fine. I was like well wait a second maybe I was too hasty in my judgment. Dang I wish I still had to call him for professional reasons :lol:

@Dushawn a husband is supposed to protect and provide (I thought that meant financially). Not some random guy I just met.

Now, I did my thing with the older dude while clucking the goods, with both hands…lolol But, I learned once to NEVER go down that road again. Shoot, I have too much pride to be asking a dude to pay something or for a service that I utilized.

2C…the only problem disco has with u meeting and stuff is that u may come back to the blog and disclose personal stuff tween u two.

I doubt she has a problem with u hunching per se!

I know u upstanding and wldnt do that

But that’s the huddle u gotta go over.

My advice:the less blog sweating her u do…banish her completely from ur blog convo…the more might get that email from her,unannounced.

What is it by the way?

At some point she gon get dry and run outta of dudes with exchangeable frequent flyer miles.

Heck,even USA federal reserve is outta cash and closed right now! :lol:

2C/Leggs – Okay, if you say so. I’m cut from a different clothe. If anything, I’m more disinterested. I’ve never, ever found anything more distasteful than sweating over some dude, especially just cause some other woman is in the picture. If he has other prospects, then by all means pursue them. See that’s where I’m coming from when I say I don’t do romantic competition!

Cel – Like I said, always too much pride to ask dudes for money. Like Olivia Pope, I’ve always had options!!LOL!!!

LOLOLOLOLOLOL……Disco don’t strike me as being a simpleton to such dumb stragety. If anything, I’d think if you gotta strategize, she’s affected you more than admitted. You “planning” to not talk about her??? That’s something my 12 y o cousin does cause he’s pouting with a lil girl….lol My guess is that assessment of an email out of the blue is over-thinking, mis-reading, and no doubt waaaaaaaaaaay off the mark. If there were me I communicate for reason or something real, a legit reason. Certainly not cause of a drought of convo and sweating and just outta the blue

I’m guessing

At some point she gon get dry and run outta of dudes with exchangeable frequent flyer miles.
