Ladies, raise your hand if you have been hit on by a guy and wanted to laugh in his face after he “spit game”.
I can guesstimate that a good number of you have your hands in the air. Everywhere I go it seems as if thirsty men roam the streets looking to prowl on us females by giving terrible pick-up lines accompanied by actions that are uncalled for. I can’t tell you how many times I have been caressed and groped as I trot along minding my own business. All of a sudden I feel a hand brush up against my arm and then my hand is pulled so I am closer to him. Nope! Not cool.
I don’t want this to be a diss to any guys; but seriously, there are some of you who have got to do better!
In the words of Jason DeRulo, pop music’s kinda sexy with his shirt off new-comer, “Everybody’s looking for love, that’s the reason your at this club.” With that being said, you won’t find love pitching awful pick-up lines!
Over the course of the past few weeks, I decided to take note of the crap I began to hear from guys in the club. Below are some actual word-for-word quotes from men trying to “holler” at my friends and me.
“I’ll pee on you, Christina Aguilera!”
“We leaving, you coming too!”
“Am I ugly? Do I look like a child molester?”
“You look so familiar! I seen you on America’s Next Top Model!”
“I’m gonna drink wine out of your pump tonight!”
“Yo lips are so juicy. I know you got a man to suck on them though. I just wanted to say hi.”
“Please excuse me. Can I get your name? I just wanna be your homeboy.”
“Y’all trying to get something to eat together?”
“If I knew you better, I’d tell you I wanna make you have an orgasm.”
“I need you in my life!
“Your boyfriend let you out the house looking that good?”
“I need a hug, I’m going through some stuff.”
“Damn! Becky got a ass!”
“I’ll follow you on twitter.” –Guy “Ok” – Me “Will you activate it for me?” – Guy
I began to think that maybe it was just the places we choose to go. But that wasn’t the case. I have been to classy clubs and I have been to trashy clubs. I have even traveled as far as Texas, and heard things like “I’m going to take you home with me, girl!”
Rude, lewd comments don’t make guys any more attractive, let alone make girls want to have a full conversation or hand out the digits.
A few weeks ago, in passing, I overheard a conversation that went like this: Guy- “Can I BBM you?” Girl- “I don’t know my pin number”. Lies! All lies! #teamblackberry knows exactly how to find their pin numbers. Translation: screw off; I don’t want to speak to you!
What ever happened to a simple, “Hello, my name is John. Nice to meet you”? Nice intros like this can lead to a normal conversation, and maybe even love in the end [editors note: Guys don’t want love, lol].
So, in sum, guys, step your game up and come up with some better material. Better yet, just respect us females and don’t grab our behinds and call us “Aye girl!” And, ladies, please have enough respect for yourself to know when to walk away from a man who speaks to you in a disgusting manner. But for all the men who actually have respectable game, kudos to you!
