How not to hit on a girl


I had already written an article, but I felt compelled to write a different one after experiencing something, well, I don’t know if the word would be amazing, but it comes to mind.

It’s true. I feel like I’m getting older. I simply don’t enjoy the bar scene as much anymore. Could it be I don’t enjoy being pushed around by people who can barely stand up? Could it be that I’m in a happy relationship? Could it be I don’t like being hit on by men older than my father? Could it be that I’d rather spend the money at a low key place with a great group of friends? To be honest, I don’t know. I just know that I don’t get the same rush of excitement getting ready to go out on a Friday or Saturday night. I’m okay with that.

This past Saturday we met a couple of friends out at a bar that shall remain nameless. I happened to be standing by the bar when I noticed a younger, cute girl that was with an older, out of shape man. I thought to myself, “How did that happen? He must have A LOT of money”. Jokes aside, I truly wondered what their situation was. Then, a few minutes later he walked away. I noticed the look of disgust on her face when she turned t to her friend. They both started laughing and she started explaining to her friend that he was actually telling her all about a recent colonoscopy.

I’m sorry, but at this point, I had to interject. I talked to these two lovely ladies for quite some time and we all laughed at some of the worst lines that we’ve been thrown. Seriously, guys, a colonoscopy? I try to block out some of my personal experiences, but I can almost guarantee that I’ve had worst.

My advice out there for all of my lovely male readers is to please reconsider what you say to a lady. No matter how much you’ve had to drink, or how funny it seems at the time. Please don’t. Show a little respect and it just might go a long way.

    That's...oh wow. I love it, lol. As someone who often writes about ways that guys can remain single, I'm totally stealing that line for the future.
