"hey i have a case of bud light at home...wanna come over?"

well went out last night...and got another classy pick up line....ive come to the conclusion that 1. guys just don't put any effort into talking to a girl...and really why should they when they tempt us with a case of bud light....let me just strip my clothes off right now :s ...and 2. there is no real need when it comes to london

i bet he didnt even have to say anything to her, except grind up on the dance floor.

perhaps guys dont bother because romance is a fantasy girls watch on tv (which i did today in my hung over state) ...or maybe im being cynical....i know that you'll never find anyone at a bar....and im not looking either, but lets be honest, cant a guy come up with something better than an offer of free beer? which brings me to another thought, men offer drinks, or weed etc, and girls put out in exchange....doesn't that just turn us into prostitutes? we give out sex in exchange for some sort of good....maybe guys have come to that conclusion as well...they can skip the talking and getting to know you part and just offer some sort of good in hopes of receiving sex ...well played boys, well played. wait to gear yourself to market trends.

meeting people/picking up has transformed into a capitalistic market....who knew? no need for alternative methods, because in london a man is bound to find someone willing to give it up for a drink...maybe london could consider that for tourism purposes :)

I'd say it's just an excuse to separate the girl from the herd. It gives her a (lame) excuse to leave with him, and then if she's interested they can go have their fun. One of my old roommates, on occasion, would suggest going back to his place for tea.

I always thought that was somewhat original, although I've never dragged a girl home from the bar.

i don't know...was your friend having a discussion with her prior, or did he just ask her if she wanted to go home for tea? my point was guys now skip the discussion and go for the lame line, which is pretty weak

so you've never dragged a girl home from the bar..thats good, but i bet you've gone home with a girl from the bar

Nah. I've gone on dates that have ended up at a bar and then ...Um, that, but I've never just picked up a chick at a bar.

As for walking up to you and with promises of sex and cheap domestic beer. Wow. That's only a step away from making cat calls from a pickup truck.

really? well i'm actually impressed then....but, wait have you ever tried to do it and were just always unsuccessful, therefore its never happened? :)

Sure, I've seen hot girls at the bar and hit on them, but that's no different than anywhere else on campus.

Making out is fun. Casual sex is just kinda gross.

wow im surprised that a guy would say casual sex is kind of gross...i thought guys wanted sex all the time....

Blogger Drew-Not-Toothpaste said...

Yeah it's amazing. Just last week I learned that girls don't like cooking and cleaning.

Blogger gardner said...

lol...ok i see your point, i suppose some guys see causal sex as gross....but what do you consider causal sex? random at a bar, or say just two friends with benefits?

I was going to comment, but I see that Drew Not Toothpaste is already doing a fine job of defending the male race. Good job, sir.

Blogger Drew-Not-Toothpaste said...

Thank you, Phronk. I do what I can.

A friend with benefits is somewhat less gross but still casual sex. Let's face it, if you were crazy about each other you'd be dating.

Blogger gardner said...

so from that im gathering you need to be crazy about someone to have sex with them...sometimes people may be very compatable sexually, but only have a friendship...i don't see that as gross, as long as there is mutal respect..you don't need to profess your undying love for them in order to get off

randoms at a bar, i think thats another story

and its not about "defending the male race"...to go back to the point of the blog...i was disgusted by the lame pick up lines and lack of effort....i don't think i was bashing men, so no need to defend, and i conceded on my generalization....but most guys think about and want sex, a lot

Blogger Drew-Not-Toothpaste said...

Hahaha. We've got her on defence, Phronk. And on her own blog! You want to take a turn at this?

hey there is no ganging up on me on my blog, i know it happens to you all the time drew, but its not going to happen here :P

11:34 AM  
Blogger Drew-Not-Toothpaste said...

It's already happened, so you're screwed I'm afraid. That said, I do consider it one of the wonderful bonding experiences of having a blog. Getting bashed by your friends.

2:54 PM  
Blogger gardner said...

hey im not really get "bashed", and at least no one is implying i'm gay :P i think that happens to this guy on another blog constantly :D

2:49 AM  
Blogger Drew-Not-Toothpaste said...

Oh no. Nobody is calling you gay...But other things might be implied. ;)

6:33 PM  
Blogger gardner said...

hey i was just using an example ...and what would these other things be? :)

6:35 PM  
Blogger Drew-Not-Toothpaste said...

I'm retreating into secrecy on that one. :p

Tactful is more like it. There are certain things that are better left unsaid.

6:44 PM  
Blogger gardner said...

...right tactful, seems more like you started to say something then pussied out, i wouldn't call that tactful

3:40 AM  
Blogger Drew-Not-Toothpaste said...

It's called genius. I'm driving you nuts.

4:01 PM  
Blogger gardner said...

uh huh....i'd have to disagree with your conclusion

beer and sex are only temporally substitutes
