Who actually does this? Besides Frasier...
"Sorry if I'm being slightly forward here..."
i'm still single
Imagine if I addressed you by your username... I think everybody should be addressed by there username in the real world.
with my posse in tow, don't hesitate to shout just that.
all my bbflz call me icoudlwinarabbit, anyway, obviously.
I bet they do...
'hi, my name is wecancreate, would you like to go out on a date with me?'
said to a complete stranger approaching the bar of a gig?
If I was a girl (or gay) then I'd jump all over that opportunity.
trouble is, that particular indie boy was about 17, and I was 29 or 30 at the time. Also, what the fuck? Oh well. 10/10 for guts.
brave kid I say.
just for clarification. It could be a good thing, but it depends on how the person says it. I like girls being forward with me because I'm shy :)
... probably more drunken advances, that crash and burn.
the only contact Frasier had was eye contact. He's a total pro...
She replied "No" and he said "Neither do I... Hi, my name is Frasier". And she fucking bought it!
Ingenious. Except if you tried to do that round my way, someone would just steal your identity.
my shallow dad did this to my shallow mam and now they sit practically mute at night because me and my sister are pretty much the only things in the middle of their venn diagram
and spend 5 years waging the most passive aggressive marital war possible, then have a messy passive aggressive divorce while their three sons look disinterested.
I hope my Dad doesn't post on here.
but I bottled it.
It's a waiting game.
I'm being facetious.
Although, having said that, I've never asked anyone out - the girls I've been involved with have always asked me out eventually after months of painstaking flirting. So in that sense, it's a waiting game. Except one who met me once (although I'd vaguely known her as a kid) and got my number off a mutual friend and asked me out - so that's almost on sight, so it might work.
In conclusion, I have no idea - horses for courses, not that I'm in any way comparing the members of the fairer sex to our equine cousins. Really, what it comes to matters of the heart (and other organs), I am useless - I am the clueless bumbling Englishman Hugh Grant plays in every film ever. Except I'm Scottish).
I didn't even know they did this, I thought it was always us... oh well.
Not as smoothly as Frasier. I guess it didn't really work out in the long run but I got a few dates and stuff. You're only really asking them out based on looks, yeah,? So it's bound to not go as well as meeting someone you've had long conversations with. But yeah, it's fine, I think girls appreciate the fact you have the balls to do it and if you do it well it's like a movie or something. Though it is a little weird, I guess. Are you going to try it? DO!
PS Now you mention it, Frasier is as slick as a brick. Remember that time he used his Dad to get a date with the hot bird that worked at the retirement home?! SLICK!!!!
something that doesn't have these features.
you seem like a top bloke on here. Granted this is an indie internet forum.... It's just confidence, isn't it? I'm really not that confident, but sometimes I manage to overcome it when I want to talk to a girl or something. You only live once blah blah blah. I'm sure any girl would be delighted if you asked them out.
see, at least you can type properly
rule one of being confident, learn to accept compliments.
