Worst. Pick up. Line. EVER

I sometimes manage to surprise myself with my utter stupidity and complete lack of flirting skills. Actually, sometimes I am so bad at flirting that I just wonder how come I’m not a virgin anymore. Honestly, I suck – and here is my latest example of absolute rubbish flirting.

I was out with one of my friends to grab a bite to eat and we were silently sitting at a table, having nothing to do. A chick – that type of girl who thinks about herself that she’s the top of the world – who was sipping from a diet Coke at a nearby table started to giggle at the stuff me and my fried were saying – we were indeed telling some funny stuff and we started to do our best when we noticed she was paying attention.

So we kept talking for a few more minutes, she kept giggling and we were getting ready to introduce ourselves to her, when she makes the second step, too. She says to me something like: “I see you’re into sports. Do you know when the Olympic Games start?” (just to make things clear: we were indeed talking about sports).

I know, not the most clever thing to say, but she’s a girl and she took the initiative – something girls rarely do. But my utter stupidity, lack of concentration and experience, as well as COMPLETELY wrong idea about what flirting means, resulted in this answer: “I have no idea, but I’d start some Olympics with you right now”.

She didn’t slap me, but my friend almost punched me. Instantly I realized how rude that was – what a horrendous, pitty pick-up line or follow-up line or whatever flirting related thing… I was nothing but an a$$hole.

Honestly now, for everybody reading – I’m not like that. It just happened to me now. I was feeling cool and though I should act cool. However, I just proved a complete lack of style and that costed me dearly – otherwise I would’ve been bust doing it right now...

It could have been worse, you could have got more Olympic-specific

"I'll pole vault over you!"

or similar triple jump, high dive and/or breast stroke references.

Mate, that's not the worst ever - even though I hope it was. ;) I know how frogs can leap out of your mouth if you're not prepared, and you probably would have gotten a giggle out of me with that line... well, at least you managed at it now. It's always refreshing to know that guys know when they're saying the wrong thing - even if it was on hind sight. ;)

Mr. Fast said...

Haha, I never thought this would draw so much attention to me :) Now I really feel ashamed for sharing my utter stupidity :) But anyway, I truly promise I'll do my best and never blow things up again. But with this... since we can't turn back the hands of time, this will stay. Now excuse me, I gotta hide :)
