ENOUGH TO BREAK THE ICE!
This time’s subject evolves around pickup lines! First things first what is a pickup line? Let’s skip the dictionary and go straight to Wikipedia.
“A pick-up line or chat-up line is a conversation opener with the intent of engaging an unfamiliar person for romance or dating. Overt and sometimes humorous displays of romantic interest, pick-up lines advertise the wit of their speakers to their target listeners.
They are most commonly used by men who pick up women.”
What I found interesting is that Wikipedia refers to mostly guys using them and women not so much (sadly I am one of the few who does and gets laughed at horribly). So what do woman/girls tend to do? I asked my wise mother. She answered with that woman don’t use words, but gestures, like smiling, winking and such. Men are not that well in non-verbal talk (mom’s words, not mine). This did make me think about a few times, once I was walking with my cousin and a girl walked in our direction and my cousin just walked up to her and said:
“ Is that a ladder in your tights or the stairway to heaven?”
She giggled and continued walking and I just stood there with my mouth open not understanding what just happened. I just couldn’t understand that you just walk up to a person on the middle of the street and say that. I was mind struck and of course, my cousin continued walking proudly like some idiot. Like, What is wrong with you? how can you be proud of that and on top of that feel like you totally OWNED it? A man his mind sure is a mystery itself..
But, that aside let us go fast forward to my first year of high school, some random guy came up to me saying:
“Do you have a robe because I keep on falling in those empty eyes of you.”
Like honestly? How can this be a pick up line? he’s totally humiliating me and making fun of me because of course he had to say such a thing with other people around, okay I can laugh about it now and let it go, but at that moment I just wanted to squawk those eyes out of his sockets
Pick up lines SHOULD most of all be funny. I don’t think you have to use them to be able to strike up a girl or a guy, I mean if you want to make the person laugh pickup lines can be a good way to break the ice. ( without a big polar bear, hopefully..?) What I would recommend is just to smile at the person a few times and that will work as well ( don’t be stupid as I am and take risks). A smile is the best way to attract someone’s attention( and everyone has a beautiful smile!) and show them you’re interested without any bad pickup lines that will make you screw up big time (As I said don’t be like me and take to many risks, avoid awkward situations).
SOO let’s go through the net. I looked up some pick up lines on the internet and I couldn’t stop laughing. Honestly I would be more interested in the geeky ones than in normal ones, because I am a sucker when it comes to geeky guys -sigh-
Let me list a few that stood out to me:
”You must be the square root of 2 because I feel irrational around you.” (math suddenly became more interesting)
”Hey baby are you an angel? Cause I am afraid you’re going to kill me when I close my eyes.” ( Hands up for doctor who<3)
”I wish I was an ion so I could form an exothermic bond with you”. ( I am a Life science student so couldn’t help but like this one.)
”I am a seeker are you my golden snitch? ”(Harry Potter how could we not let him catch us.)
”R4 is red, R2 is blue. If I was the force I’d be with you.” (this is one my best friend has used quite often.)
“beards can red, blades can glow blue, there is only one precious and that must be you.” (How can I not put in a lord of the rings pick up line?)
“Are you a giant flashing signal of a bat, cause I’m really drawn to you.” (Oh, batman stop it)
”I am not staring at your boobs, I am staring at your heart.” (yeah sure keep on trying)
”Did you sit in a pile of sugar? Cause you have a pretty sweet ass.” (who the hell is going to sit on a freaking pile of sugar? COME ON)
”Forget about Spiderman, Superman, and Batman. I’ll be your man.” ( no, sorry I still rather have the Batman one.)
”If you were a vegetable you’d be a cute-cumber” ( Okay, Okay this one is quite funny)
”Are you a Pikachu? Because you are shockingly beautiful ”(This could actually work! It’s geeky it’s sweet ,this one is a yes to me!)
So, here you have them, some of the pickup lines that stood out to me. I bet there are a lot funnier or better ones. Feel free to share some of the pickup lines YOU thought was funny or used. In the end, pickup lines will always be a way of trying to be funny. So we better just laugh them off and feel special. If someone grabbing all the guts he/she has to come up to you and try them out. I would see it more as a compliment than something that would put me down. I mean someone wants to strike up a conversation with you so bad that he or she is using pick up lines to make that happen. That’s pretty cute, sweet and charming 🙂 ( unless he or she uses dirty ones.. then it’s just a one night stand call, just saying)
I am an average 18-year-old with 99 problems and this post contains none of them
We all have felt that moment, that moment when you feel like someone is getting into your safety zone. 1
Someone does not accept the way you are or they hurt you and make you build a wall.
Some people try, try hard to be themself behind these walls.
A long time ago I was one of them.
Not knowing whats going on.
So this poem I wrote it for the people out there
who are struggling, struggling with themself.
My message today:
Stay strong and be who you are.
Be noticed. Noticed by your own charm.
There have been many things I had to learn the hard way, but there is one thing I just never seem to learn:
Picking the right friends.
I am the kind of girl that, when we’re friends, is likely to do anything she can to keep you, as my friend, happy. I would help you as much as I possibly could. I’d even go so far as to take you everywhere I go with my family, because that’s fun, right? That’s what friends do, right? Having fun with each other and make memories together so that later on we can have good things to reminiscence about. These things all make it easy for people to take advantage of me, and they more often than not do.
Every. Time. Again.
I’ve always been the kind of person who did absolutely not believe in Friday the 13th, but yesterday sure took it’s toll on me and made me think about it. And no, I still think its a coincidence and that it has nothing to do with that particular day…
I think, I hope..
It all started with a wake up call at 9:00 am from my mentor, because what is a better way to wake up? It’s getting better: she said I had to be at school in a hour to apply for my redo and, if I won’t make it I will have failed and inevitably be kicked off this school.
Good morning to you too..
This is written in memory of someone who isn’t here with me anymore.
In memory of the people who are still fighting for peace and safety.
for strong and ambitious people leaving safety and going out there to save the people who aren’t as lucky as us.
For the people who stayed home and need to hear the terrible news of losing their loved ones.
their death isn’t just to serve their country, but to serve all of us and give us a peaceful world.
We’re in that period that everyone is stressed out or just nervous about: results. And not just normal test results, no, final results deciding if you failed your year, passed it or have to redo an exam.
What’s the worst about this?
