    Shake it Like a Polaroid Picture

    I know that this topic isn’t really BB material (more like material from my friends at Date Daily...), but I just HAVE to share the most amazing pick-up “line” I have EVER seen with my BB peeps. Like, I wish I were back on the prowl just so I could use this strategy. NO, seriously!

    So, hypothetically, let’s say that I was on a mini East coast staycation (like you didn’t know I was East coast with my ‘tude), and that I was hypothetically having a few delicious cocktails at The Spotted Pig in the West Village. And let’s say that I was sitting next to some pretty hot chicks that were just hanging out enjoying some time with friends. When out of nowhere, this incredibly handsome man appears at the bar. He is carrying nothing but a POLARIOD camera. Yes, a fucking Polaroid camera. He places an order with the bartender and waits for his drink. When all of a sudden he has eye contact with one of these chicks. And so it begins… 

    “Hi.” He said in the most suave voice I have ever heard. 

    “Hi.” The hot chick said back.

    “Your dress is beautiful. It fits you nicely.” He says in a matter of fact kind of way.


    “Oh my God. Thanks!” she blushes.

    “In fact, you all look beautiful this evening. I’d love to take your picture.” Said the handsome man.

    REALLY? I am totally dying as I am watching this shit go down. But here comes the best part:

    “Sure! Take our picture. Wait… is that a Polaroid camera? That is so funny! Who has a Polaroid camera anymore?” they asked.

    You know who has a Polaroid camera? The dude that just took your picture, and who is taking you home! That’s who! Fucking genius!! Right? Not only do they have a memento of the evening, but it all happened in such a unique way, that even if it is just for the night, it’s definitely one that I bet she’ll never forget!

    And you know what? Maybe they will get married. I did. I met my husband in a bar. There was no Polaroid, but he was pretty clever and handsome, so I took him home…

    Where did you meet your sig other? Was there a fantastic line involved?

    That is a pretty unique way of getting attention. I bet it was even more fun for you to watch it all happen!

    I met my fiancé online. We are both huge comic book fans, and I met him through networking on a few sites we both frequent. Our wedding is next spring, and we are incorporating some comic book favorites into our theme. Hope everybody enjoys our sense of humor!

    Hey LB,

    I seriously was floored! I mean, I was totally dying over how clever (and hot) this man was!!

    Anyway, congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I remember when meeting somebody online used to have such a negative stigma attached to it. Now I feel like half of my couples meet that way!

    Good luck!

    It worked because he was handsome! If he had been weird looking or just sort of normal, not that confident looking it would have come across as weird or stalkerish. "Seriously, you're going to take my picture w/a Polaroid, will you pin it to a wall so you have a memento? Creep!"

    Oh, and I met my husband when we were both volunteering at a soup kitchen. It was one guy and about 6 girls, no line needed. He'd have to have been completely useless not to go home with someone with those odds & that set up!

    When my now husband and I were hanging out at a bar (bc my best friend was dating his friend) he looked me dead in the eye an said "we are gonna date" and I looked right back at him and replied "no we won't, you don't make enough money to support me, I'm high maintenance." sure enough less than a month later, we were dating. And he claims I made the first move that night we got together (by placing my hand on his leg.)

    Hey Marta!

    That may be true because MAN was he handsome, but I have met plenty of handsome men with zero personality, and that kind of ruins it for me, ya' know? But, this guy... he just had "it". The looks, personality and certainly the cleverness...

    Of course you met your husband while volunteering at a soup kitchen. You are like the most selfless person I have even "known". And sure there were five other girls and his odds were fantastic, but... he picked you!

    LOVE IT!

    Hey Ashley,

    That's awesome! I love forward men. And forward men with the balls enough to back up their statements... DREAMY.

    And I know all about being high maintenance! I said the same thing to my hus, and it feels like forever ago! Takes care of my high maintenance ass in every way, even when I don't deserve it.

    I'm going to have to disagree here... I've been asked to have my picture taken but it's by tourist men from Asia who are intrigued by blonde hair - and it always happens at the beach, (I live in Hawaii) which means I'm in a bikini, and somehow that makes it creepier. AND it's a digital camera, not a polaroid. If someone confronts me with a polaroid, I might say yes ;-)

    I met my husband in Borders here in Hawaii (before it went out of business) in the magazine aisle. We were both flipping through the economist, he made a political joke (we're both political science dorks) about a certain former TX president, and we learned we were both transplants from Texas. We went for coffee in the book store - and the rest is history :-D

    Hey Sara!

    HA! That's funny! NO WONDER why the idea of having your photo taken with a stranger gives you the creeps! Picture a different circumstance. A much cooler one than the one you have experienced!

    BTW... I LOVE that you met your husband in a book store flipping through the economist! That's hilarious!!

    Thanks for your comment!

    classic... :)

    Met my husband by hanging out with some of my guy friends - they tried to set me up with him, but I said no... a few months later, I saw him again and asked him out

    Hey Addie,

    Totally love that you asked him out! I have a deep respect for women who have the BALLS to ask for what they want! So proud of you!

    Thanks for your comment!

    This isn't the guy that I ended up with, but it was a really unique way to meet someone, and we ended up dating for a long time...

    I was on a really bad "Blind" (IE:Online) date that had lied to me about their age. They were more than 20 years older than me, had a HORRIBLE receeding hairline, and was quite possibly the most boring person that I had ever met. We were sitting at the bar, and I was trying everything that I could think of to ditch him, when I saw this gorgeous, big, buff, hunk walk in the door. I thought now Mr. Old dude here would never mess with Hottie McHotterson, so I told him that an old friend of mine just walked in that I hadn't seen in forever and would he excuse me so that I could go say hello. I walked up to Hottie, leaned in and gave him a hug, and whispered in his ear "You're saving me from a HORRIBLE blind date, Please play along". We ended up sitting and talking and I never saw Mr. Old Dude again!
