what not to do

let's pretend you're a guy who likes a girl and you think to yourself "hmm..what charming things can i do to win over the heart of this young lass?" here is a list of things that might not work that great:

1. tell all your mutual friends that you like her and that she likes you...before even going on a date or talking for more than 3 minutes (especially if 2.8 of those minutes consist of talking about why mit romney should be the next president)

2. ask her to take you to the airport during rush hour traffic an hour before you need to be there, talk about mit romney on the entire drive, and then leave your phone AND wallet in her car. then have your mom - yes, your mom - call her phone once she's almost home. this was the conversation "hi, this is nate's mother. he told me he left his phone in your car. would you mind meeting him back where you dropped him off to give him his phone?" um...is that wierd? it's a total ambush meet the parents.

3. ask her out on a date and then when she can't go, ask her sister out on the same date...

4. realize and acknowledge that she's actually dating someone else - and then ask her out on a date the next day

5. call the boy she's dating and ask him if he wants to go out on a double date - you, the boy she's dating, her and her sister

6. call again the next weekend to ask her on a date

7. when she explains that she can't because she's going on a date with the guy she's actually dating, invite yourself along

even though i dont think mitt romney should be president i think i want to go on a double date with this guy and you and your boyfriend. it sounds like a pretty fun date.

ck said...

yes you would love him. he's a charmer

natali said...

ck do you live in salt lake yet?

ck said...

no but i'm maybe going to visit over labor day. what say ye? can i stay with you maybe? (p.s. i probably will be bringing my puppy)

if your puppy, when it grows up, has posterity, you should name one of them mitt romney.

another thing a guy should do happens after he asks a girl out. within the next 24 hours, he should call and text incessantly. i always love that.
(in addition to scoring a ride to the airport)

ck said...

good idea colls only a) my puppy no longer has the right equipment to have puppies and b) i like spelling mitt with only one 't'

i definitely agree the texting rule - at least 25 every hour is good

you can stay with me. i dont have any plans to leave. but your dog might be a different story...i am allergic to dogs. cats. horses. peanuts. etc.

ck said...

only maybe now i can't. i completely forgot it's my coworker's wedding. she would kill me if i didn't go :P

coworker? please. i barely go to close friends weddings. let me paint you a picture. everyone running around taking pictures until they start getting drunk and making sappy toasts and the bride and groom have no idea who is there an who isnt and there is cake. actually that sounds kind of fun.

Just so you know saying stuff like, "You look good for a nooner" doesn't work either.
