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?

Time to Go Celisea!

Today was a beautiful day so I decided to take a walk downtown..I dress very professional as usually wing tips, pleated slacks, jacket, Fredrick shirts. On my way I passed by the MegaBus and saw my people, now I was a little taken back because one person reach out like they wanted something from me, but because I am boogie and the CEO I cannot be affilated, associated, similated, similaced,toasted bread, publics boars head meat touched by one who rides the megabus… So, I scurried along down the path because this walking is going to help me win the corporate challenge( Oh did I mentioned that before) and their was 2 bums accross the street about a 1/4 of a mile down from me looking my way… Well you know I am not a chicken but I keep it up a notch and briskley walk back to my CEO office which did I tell is Fantab… Oh well Toodles!

Leggs – It all depends on the vibe and how comfortable and at ease the friend girl makes you feel (not you per se, but generally speaking). At that point, everybody is just friends. All she has to do is engage you on some female shid, like; “girl I like your shoes” and yall start bonding. Then she may be having an upcoming event or get together and suggest I bring you. When she makes it obvious that she is no threat, it works to the guys advantage. Most times anyway.

dang. I’m off missing the good convo. let me get some of this. lol.

ex/du/2c – re the game of no game. that works in theory and with a select demographic. the flaw in the theory is that you are working on the assumption that she wants to give you some. remember, the average woman knows out the gate whether or not you are going to get some. she also has a general idea of when. thing is, sometimes you’re just cool and she keeps you around but she has no intention of getting with you like that. in that situation, game, the game of no game, money and nothing else is going to change the outcome.

So Leggs, MsAtl and YSIC do you have a time clock in your head that tells I am ready to let this man make love to me or is it a feeling out process that tells you are ready?

YSIC…Some of your adventures with men are very Funny!

MissMoni….I bet you have some really good stories as well! Do tell! :)

yes – I think I’d rather get the jailhouse call than the mental hospital call. lol.

y’all know I gotta get in on men and their separation from their loot. on the one hand I hate a chick that asks for money but on the other hand a closed mouth don’t get fed. some chicks I want to beat over the head with a brick until they learn to tell them dudes to do something besides lay up. my style though is simply to pick the type of men who want to do. I rarely have to ask for things. it’s usually offered or I can toss out a subtle hint and it’s usually caught.

and here’s one for the fellows. I’m not that chick on here singing the getting to know you game. thing is if it’s just about a smash, I will do the smashing, not you. I will choose you and I will do you and I will be done with you when it’s over with. does that type of action happen much? naw. not because of any high moral ground on my part but because – as I’ve stated before – a lot of men simply aren’t aging well. they aren’t fine enough to screw just for the sake of screwing. they gotta bring something else to make it worth one’s while. lol.

Disco and Leggs thanks for the response, me personally I don’t even come close to talking about smashing early in the dating process especially if I was dating classy ladies like yourselves…

Leggs – It’s easy to be in the right defense if you know what plays are being run. Realistically, I don’t remember ever working too hard to win a woman’s heart. I never put a lot of thought into it. We met, we vibed, got together and had fun. It all unfolded effortlessly. Either that or we didn’t hit it off, recognized that early on and kept it moving.

Same difference Leggs and disco

If it’s consensual sex,if I smash I smash

Ofcourse the vagina is yours..Always!

What’s the argument?

Semantics

ex – no. it’s really not the same. the reality is, the average man can’t take being smashed. something primal I guess. something about him being the hunter and conquering the prey I suppose (lol). maybe his manhood is threatened when the gazelle grabs him around his neck and tosses him around. lol.

It might be semantics on your part, but like you guys think you have the woman wide open, some of us women have you men wide open and will hit that highway if we call you to. Sure, we’re both smashing, but it’s because I called in the order, not you!

ex – I’ve done the thing, got dressed and rolled out while dude was sleep. no goodnight, no goodbye, no nothing other than locking the door on my way out. now, while that sounds good on the outside looking in, a lot of dudes don’t tend to like that feeling of waking up alone when they thought they didn’t go to bed alone. I guess they need to think that they put it on you so good that you will be all clingy, wanting to stay for breakfast and all that. poor fellas. lol.

ex – correction. I’m not smashing them because they don’t age well. I suppose they might make good relationship material. the key to being smash material is being fine enough to want to smash without strings. now, that may vary for men since y’all are just trying to get in where y’all fit in but since the average woman can pretty much get screwed whenever she wants we can be far more selective than you guys.

leggs – right right….
