at what age should people stop using this technique?
"our eyes met across a crowded bingo hall. she had the most beautiful brown eyes that later turned out to be just the reflection of an overflowing colostomy bag on table 4"
I think it's great for people that don't have the confidence to go up and say so themselves.
it helps me and my awkward shyness.
it seems okay when drunk..
It should never be used. 90% of the time the person is just saying it to wind their mate up
I have lowered the age to 14 and 19 weeks
although it's a decent enough 'heads up'.
I never would have been turned down by a hot barmaid.
It's the worst thing ever
2 young chavvy girls approach
"here my mate really fancies you will you get off with her?"
"will you pull my mate?"
*more giggling, gradually turning into bellowous laughter and finally the coup de grace of the "point and laugh" technique*
I walk off, red-faced.
when I used to go to the Cathouse unders.
Such a thing has never occured to me anywhere else.
the 'mate' generally did fancy the victim.
My friends often got off with people without saying a word to them.. It would be arranged through their mate and usually as soon as it was over, they'd part ways. So so weird when you think about it.
but for me it was the Sub Club.
It seemed normal at the time, but actually its kind of creepy.
for one person to pull both the 'mate' and the person who introduced the 'mate' in the same night.
it makes me hate me.
maybe they do actually fancy you though?
srsly though, they're hateful slags.
you unfeeling bastard.
it's an odd technique to make fun of someone. Especially since I blank them totally every time.
which makes you feel like a wanker.
then the other half of the time if it is true its just even awkward than it would have been anyway.
For some reason they think they're getting one over me (no pun intended)...HOW IS THIS?
"will u got out with ma mate she thnks yr well fit!"
"ta, but i'm fine."
"LOL OK, will u b her frend?"
"nah, i've got plenty already cheers."
them: 'my mate fancies you...'
me: 'you are aware i'm 25...'
them: 'oh, i thought you were 17...sorry to bother you'
'see my mate over there?' *coy wave & giggle*
'she thinks you're pug ugly and so do I'
it stung but I did appreciate the new spin on the whole thing. Inventive and deflating at the same time.
