So I have had various amusements with pickup lines all over the world. The worst and funniest were by far in Italy. LA has had some good ones this week. Here’s the roster:
Walking with my cousin out of Trader Joe’s today had the late 20 something year old manager flirt with both of us, ask where I was from, eye gorgeous Jenny and then ask if he could show us around LA and invited us to come back to Trader Joe’s to get him if we wanted to take him up on his offer to go party.
??? Interesting place to find a date! uh.. er…
Salsa dancing would clearly have some winners as it usually does. The men in LA got points for quantity of lines. I had 3 hours of dancing at the pre-congress salsa party and didn’t have to ask one person to dance and pretty much never stopped dancing except to hide on the balcony to cool off. During those three hours I heard :
“I had a spark about me and he had to come across the room to meet me because he was dancing with someone, saw me and said ‘I have to meet that girl'” He had some other things to say but I can’t remember. I laughed.
“What ethnicity was I? Because my face was gorgeous.” (and then the same guy) I commented “it was hot in the room” and he said “no you are.” Lol. Oh wow. Oh dear. haha. I did laugh a lot I admit.
Another ethnicity one and some compliments. I think my face confuses people. Welcome to my multi ethnic family
The spark guy came BACK to find me and this time.. well you all know these lines don’t work on me and I reject all the guys right? I think salsa records so far is Christy 300 guys 1 So his forwardness was getting a bit much so he said again.. “I just had this aura about me and it was amazing.” I said:
“Yeah. That’s because I know Jesus and I’m a Christian.”
This did not have the “run away” affect I was hoping it would have on him.
“WHAT?!?! Jesus!?!? You said the magic word!! Jesus and I’s been tight since I was a little boy.” He had a lot more to say which told me he didn’t seem to know Jesus himself all that well.
I didn’t have the heart to tell him I was pretty sure he wasn’t THAT into Jesus if he didn’t care if I knew Jesus before he started chatting me up.
Best one of the night. Just a great dance and the guy handing me his number and asking me to call him if I came back the next day to the congress again. Subtle. Not too pushy. He was cute. I didn’t call him but it was a nice effort. 🙂
