Pick Up Lines
Anyone who’s spent time in the single’s scene has no doubt been subject to an array of bad pick-up lines, from giggle-inducing gems (“Are your legs tired, ‘cause you’ve been running through my mind all night”) to un-original fallbacks (“You have beautiful eyes” – that’s right, they’re up here). At best, they might give you a laugh and at worst they may make you throw up a little in your mouth. But guys keep trying, god love ‘em, and here are some of the best efforts.
- “Bond…James Bond.” This is just funny. It would make me laugh, or at the very least, I’d let him buy me a drink.
- “Let’s have breakfast tomorrow. Should I call you or nudge you?” The success of this depends entirely on delivery. If he’s super suave, he might get away with it.
- “If I had a nickel for every time I saw someone as beautiful as you, I’d have five cents.” This is unusual in that it’s actually kind of good. It’s a new take on the “You have beautiful eyes” number, but much more effective. If delivered in a sincere fashion, this one could be really sweet.
- “Haven’t you seen me somewhere before?” This one may make you do a double take, and anything that extends the conversation counts as a winning pick-up line.
- “If I told you you had a nice body, would you hold it against me?” Okay, this one is not new, but at least it shows a little effort and an understanding of the tricky art of double entendre.
- “I lost my teddy bear, will you sleep with me?” This one is unusual in the worst way. It not only gives off a creepy, stalker vibe, it also says you have spaceship sheets and your “roommate” is your mom. Ick.
- “You don’t sweat much for a fat chick.” Has anyone in the history of dating ever made this line work?! I think not.
- “Do you work for AT&T? ‘Cause you’re raising my bar.” This is another on the long list of occupational pick-up lines, but at least it’s current.
- “I may not be the best-looking guy here, but I’m the only one talking to you.” This one could go either way. It’s pretty insulting, but also self-deprecating, so it really depends on the girl (and how drunk she is).
- “Let me read your future.” This is accompanied by the guy taking your hand and writing his phone number on it. Cute and confident. If he does it enough, maybe someone will call back.

If you’re SHI, chances are you’ve been trying to figure out a way to broaden your singles experience beyond just the bars and the clubs. Or maybe you’re a person who doesn’t even really like hanging around bars. Where do you go to meet new people? Honestly, bars and clubs aren’t the only places to meet new people. Single, Happy and Interested people can be found in all sorts of spots where you wouldn’t even thing of looking. They’re hidden in the most unlikely places. All that you have to do is look!
The Book Store
Who's SHI ?
This is a great little nook where no one seems to think about looking for singles. There are few other places where you can find a huge group of very intelligent single people all in the same place. Best of all, meeting people in this venue is extremely easy. All that you have to do is peak over at the book that the person next to you is about to buy. If it’s something that you’re interested in, make a comment, and them *boom* you’ve just met a new person.
Your Thursday Evening Class
School is THE singles hookup. Take a class on a Tuesday or Thursday night, then take the SHI single you meet there out for a drink on Friday! Foreign language classes and music classes always seem to attract interesting people.
The Grocery Store
I can’t even begin to count the number of Single, Happy and Interested people I’ve met at the grocery store. You’ve just got to keep your eyes open and you’ll see that this place is a hotbed for singles action.
Your Exercise or Yoga Group
A Yoga group is a great place to meet new people.
a heck of a way to eyeball each other!
I know this from personal experience. In fact, I met my current girlfriend at a yoga group. She was right in front of me stretching every Monday and Wednesday afternoon, and before long we hit it off and it became something beautiful. And this type of story is by no means uncommon.
Your Neighborhood Film Club
If you’re a film buff, this is a great way to meet people who share your interests. Almost every town has one of these, and I’ve met some of the coolest people when I’ve attended the one in my home town. A great film is always an excellent basis for conversation. At my club, we used to go out for drinks or coffee afterward and talk endlessly about our thoughts on whichever pretentious art film we’d decided to watch that week.
Now this may sound like a long shot (or a joke) but it’s not. If you’re religious, church is THE singles hookup. And thankfully, many churches in America are much more open than they used to be. So even if you are a part of the LGBT community, finding a great church where you can be spiritually enriched and meet some SHI singles at the same time is easier than ever.

First dates have evolved considerably since the Middle Ages, when a couples´ introduction to each other may not have been until they met at the altar! Dating has now become an industry in its own right with books, magazines and web sites dedicated to ensuring that you select the right place to go, are suitably attired and create a flawless impression with your potential partner. Advice is frequently offered on how to avoid the mundane and make that first encounter special, and inasmuch as a film, dinner or riverboat ride may be romantic, we cannot all afford to do it in Paris (which would be memorable!). So, here are a few suggestions for making that never-to-be-forgotten first date, which will tell you more about your potential partner than just the way they slurp their spaghetti.
Paintball. Starting a new relationship in a fight! Is this such a good idea? Well, provided you are both on the same side, you will be working together as a couple to ensure that the team you are in achieve their objective. Paintballing can be a lot of fun, and involves planning, strategy and teamwork as well as the physical element of pumping emulsion into each other a lá Tarantino. Tip 1. If your female partner greets this suggestion with more enthusiasm than you anticipated – worry!
Star Trek Convention
Elvis/Star Trek/Rocky Horror Show Conventions
These are fantastic opportunities to dress up as your idol or favorite character and exchange stories about your most precious moments. The chance is that you will discover more about each other than you would have at a movie, and this will be an event that you always look back on and make part of your future plans. Tip 2. If your male partner looks better than you in make-up and stockings, you may want to re-consider this option.
Acupuncture to Stop Smoking. You may have first made eye contact sheltering from the elements as you take a cigarette break from the office, but now you want to take the relationship further. What better way to start a future life together than committing to give up smoking and making an appointment to see an acupuncturist? Tip 3. Do not bring your cigarettes with you on this date!
Visit a Psychic. This is a make or break first date. No need to worry about what your friends think about your new potential partner. Forget about what your horoscope says in the dailies. Consult somebody who is supposed to know which way your life is going and who with, and you will find out whether this relationship is doomed to failure or if you will live happily ever after. Tip 4. Go dutch on this date – just in case!
Get a Tattoo. Getting a tattoo is possibly a step further than most people expecting a pizza and cup of coffee would have anticipated on their first date. However, if you know that your date has an interest in tattooing, the emotional and physical act of indelibly marking your skin will leave more than a lasting image on your body! Tip 5. If your partner intends to engrave your name all over their body, you may have a “Fatal Attraction” problem.
Dog Obedience Classes. If you share a love of mans best friend, then there is a good chance that you will be compatible too. However, dogs can reflect their owners´ characteristics, so if your partner’s dog refuses to follow simple commands this may be an indication of what the future holds! Attending a dog obedience class is a great opportunity for you and your dogs to bond, and will be a sharing experience that you will always remember. Tip 6. You will both need a dog!

I’m still plodding my way with this blogging. So, although when I received this amazing powerpoint presentation it had music and so on, when I put it on this blog it had to be a ppt file and not a pps file and this doesn’t come with music for some reason.
Bottom line, click on the first link for Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata and then open a new browser window with this same blog, and then click on the second link for the presentation. You won’t be disappointed. There’s only one word for it – awesome – or 2, utterly awesome!
And for those of you who are dating, what better way to enjoy each other’s company than a moonlit picnic – romantic or what!!! These pics and this haunting music will definitely inspire you.
Click this link first:
Remember, open a new browser window and then click on this second link so you end up with the music playing simultaneous to the powerpoint presentation below.
Many ways to look at the moon
Just to whet your appetite a little – view a few of the amazing images you will find in this glorious presentation – there are plenty more to delight you, I promise.
moon pic and oh the colors
Simply Stunning - and to think man has walked on that moon!
Isn't nature wonderful - even if I'm not that into bugs!
I know I wish I could do that sometimes - don't you?

Incredible, Unbelievable and any other description you care to come up with applies here.
Err - where's Turbo on this thing?
You won't find this in a Mills & Boon
Lovely teeth, beautiful condition, no I don't need to check the molars
You're feeling shy?
Oh, you saw JAWS - yes, that was me!
Good boy! (What else could he say! What would you have said?)
I’d love to see what this guy has on his dating profile. I’m guessing it would read something like this:
Profession: Top Rate Dentist
About me: I like living on the edge and love outdoor adventures. I’m at one with nature. Looking for excitement in a relationship. Will travel the many seas to be with the one for me.
And yes, this did happen in Australia. And no, most of us stick to the normal everyday boring (but generally safe!) cats, dogs and some venture as far as guinea pigs and rabbits. job that’s all his…
But there again, we are famous for the likes of Crocodile Dundee, Steve Irwin and Malcom Douglas, so there must be something in the water…
I’ve heard of the horse whisperer. This fellow must be the shark whisperer. It’s a job that’s all his!
