You're not the only one who flagged that troll.  At least we can all breathe as she seems to have disappeared.

I either...

Dazzle them with my ability to contextualize literature (dependent on the venue) or give them a smile and make some courteous gesture. If it's a friend of a friend, I have a dinner party so I can cook for them. That's it...that's the extent of my game. Ladies, form an orderly queue! lol

Legally Blond?

Wasn't that move in Legally Blond or whatever the first one was? You know, in the beauty parlor with the UPS guy.

The Bend and Snap

Just in case any of the girls haven't seen this.  It's ridiculous but funny nonetheless.  Maybe because Jennifer Coolidge is so hilarious.

Thinking vs. Doing

I will tell you what I THINK I should do and what I really do.

What I think I should do is to ask her about herself to show my interest in learning about her.

What I really do is act goofy. That's life!

Still searching for the right brainy quote.

minniesota's picture

More about goofy

I always act goofy, so it is hard to tell if I'm acting normal goofy or goofy because I'm interested in you. Tongue

Still searching for the right brainy quote.

Goofometer?

Maybe we should set you up with a goofometer, kind of like a mood ring, so people can tell the difference. Now I'm trying to remember if I thought you were goofy when we met. Hmm... Nope. Darn!

If making them laugh can be considered a move then I suppose that's mine.

drop something and bend over? ;p

haha, is this coming out of the deeply existential dinner discussion y'all had in the video yesterday? Touch vs. no touch, bend over and arch the back, that kinda stuff?

I admit, I don't really have any actual "moves." Maybe I need some (KL, wanna be my flirting coach?). Academic geeky girl that I am, I usually just flap my gums a lot, particularly if the person has expressed interest in a topic I have some knowledge about, so I can impress her with my complex inner workings and draw her into a discussion that no one else can enter due to intimidation. This only works with smart chicks of course! (which is fine w/ me...)
