Which One?

A couple of weeks ago, I came up with a pickup line that at least suits me. Since those couple of weeks ago, I've been analyzing it for kind of maximum effectiveness, figuring out which words would work best for me.

The original incarnation is: "So, what'd I miss before we met?"

I like this, but I'm iffy about the "we". I would only be inclined to use the "we" if I was interested in the woman right away. If I found something interesting about her, but wasn't interested in the entire her right away, yet still wanted to know more, I'd likely use this one:

"So, what'd I miss before you met me?"

Now here's the tightrope of this one: By using this, it may convey the confidence I have. Yet, it may also be construed as egotistical. I'm not sure yet.

I haven't had the chance yet to use either one, so for now, I'll ruminate. Both of them are as fine-tuned as I can get them, so maybe it just depends on the woman's perception. Depending on the woman, I'll chance it with either one.


  1. Aw baby, there was a river of tears and more than a few men.



    I suppose I fell in love a few times, made mistakes a hundred fold as often.

    I kept checking over my shoulder. I'd look left. I'd look right. I tried to pay attention--honest. But there was always something glittering just like a star ahead of me and that's where I'd head. Most times, the gleam was just mean old headlights speeding by.

    But sometimes it was something else.

    That's why I'm still smiling, baby.

    Now let's scram out of here and grab a cuppa.

  2. Marginally better than, 'You don't sweat much for a fat lass, do you.' (It's VERY important to miss out the question mark!)

  3. Erin, what a wonderful way to describe the Goat. I hope for the same when I find my own Erin O'Brien.

    Gary, I will not date fat women. I will not date stick-thin women, either, but I was once a very fat man, and I cannot go through the stress of that as I once did on my own.
