How to not pick up a girl

How to not pick up a girl

So I’m aware that in today’s day and age, technology and social networking are a part of our everyday lives. Our cell phones are attached to our palms and in most cases, the first and last thing we do in our day is check our Twitter or Facebook feed. Social networking and technology have changed the way we do absolutely everything, from getting local news to pure entertainment, and unfortunately, this is also the case for how a guy tries to pick up a girl.

This is going to be very blunt but you guys really need to stop doing that, now. If I log onto Facebook and see a message from a random guy I’ve never talked to reading, “Hey beautiful, how are you today?” I instantly think you’re a creep and any chance you may have had with me is ruined; I mean paper-shredded-and-then-set-on-fire kind of ruined.

First impressions of people are so important, and if a girl’s first impression of you is her thinking this kid is a weirdo, I need to block him ASAP, then there is really no turning back from that. Sorry.

There’s nothing wrong with “liking” a girl’s Facebook picture or “favoriting” an Instagram post, but when a girl see’s that you’ve liked a picture from 5 months ago she is going to know instantly that you were doing some hardcore creeping.

I just don’t understand what some of your logic is behind doing this.

Granted you may start talking to a girl after one of these encounters, but if you’re really looking for something serious then why wouldn’t you try to impress the girl? Ask her out on a real date, face-to-face.

I can pinky promise you that having the courage to go up to a girl in person will impress her much more than hitting her up on Facebook with a message reading, “Hey, IDK you but ur cuteeee! What up gorgeoussss :).”

Seriously, give me a break.

You’re welcome boys.

Alex Francisco, Sports Editor
Fresh off of a great summer spent by her pool or at the Cape every weekend, this sun-worshipper is back for one last year at LHS. Alex, Al, Franny, or any other nickname you can come up with may come off as a girly-girl based on her long brown hair or Hello Kitty obsession, but anyone who knows her will argue she’s just like another one of the guys. The only thing she enjoys more than watching ESPN is being on the beach with her cowboy hat, sunglasses, one of her thousands of bikinis, and her favorite Pandora playlist: Today’s Country Hits with John Mayer and Dave Matthews band variety (So relaxing!) You’ll catch her roaming the halls in a basketball jersey and her purple crocs, but as long as you don’t try to change the music playing in her car, Molly the Mazda, you won’t have any problems.
