worst date stories - Page 77

post #1141 of 1406

wow... alot has happened in this thread since I last posted, and it hasn't been to negative so that is great...

 

Unfortunately no dates to report yet, I'm pretty schiit at talking to girls in person. I do know what to do but I think it isn't the time to try to fix it. The most unfortunate things is that most of the girls I meet have the worst voices, which makes for not so excellent conversation in general.

Billsonchang007: that was the cutest thing I've read in this thread

I do get questioned on that lots of time when I play truth or dare but the fact is, no one believe what I said when I choose "truth" specially when it comes to that kind of question xD


Thank you xD

Truth or Dare is great fun, you end up doing and saying all kinds of bad things....

 

Also I've never been good at noticing if a girl likes me either.

 

The other day at work (maplins) a girl had an All Time Low t-shirt, and i said they were a good band, she also bought a cheap pair of headphones so I gave her my business card (for my blog) and said in the future look there for headphone buying advice. She added me on twitter, and earlier that day she had tweeted:

 

Nothing like being chatted up in Maplins xD

 

Apparently I was chatting her up... Even though I have a girlfriend haha

I see no problem just charting with another girl if you have a girlfriend or a wife.., just be honest to your gf/wife xD

The moment when her friend ask you: "hey, do you like [insert a girl name]?" It's already obvious~ or if she ask you if you like anyone. Not a fan of judging it by their actions because some headphones look attractive and features your needs, but they don't sound as if they want you to buy itself xP I know one who sound "in your face": "do you like me?"

Yeah chatting is fine, my girlfriend thought that tweet was amusing, she's not the jealous type.

I just thought it was funny that the girl thought I was chatting her up.

She seems... very young.

Yes :/ Scary.... I was just helping her to make the right headphone choices, not hitting on her

 I think I've gotten worse at that as I've grown older. :blink:

Yes that can happen too! The older we are the more we get set in our ways unless the person is really self aware.

Facepalm myself xD I though "chatting her up' as in talking to her or/and recommending a headphone to her... Well such sensitive @.@

Well I Don't know if you have that saying in american English.
post #1151 of 1406

I was familiar with what you meant. It's difficult to say if it's a native feature of my dialect or if it's something I picked up from UK influence, though. I've also heard "talking up" used the same way*, and I perceive a difference between "chatting/talking up" and "chatting/talking with", the latter meaning benign conversation.

 

I think in America the phrase "hitting on" might be more popular than "[x] up," though I don't imagine data exist to verify that.

 

*Though, confusingly, I've also heard "talking up" in the context of making something out to be more than it actually is.

We study British English here, but sadly, we don't speak British ancient and I always have problem spelling in British English as I always find myself spelling in American way. I'm well known, in my class, for spelling "color"

In Canada we supposedly speak British English, but it's all garbled in with the American English. Then again, English isn't really a language on its own... it's more like a bully who beats up other languages and randomly steals their vocabulary and syntax.

I'm American, yet thanks to watching Top Gear, I find myself using "aluminium" instead of aluminum. :smile_phones:

Quoted for truth. Though I'd rather it be this way than if we tried to keep English artificially "pure" and free of "foreign" influence. In English, there's so many ways to say basically the same thing, but with subtle differences in nuance or tone. I love words (as my title indicates), and the more words I have to use, the better.

 

Something that often confuses people is that English is technically a Germanic language, despite sharing a large percentage of its vocabulary with Romance languages. Then you tell them about the Norman conquest, and all the other weird stuff that happened with English after that, and their eyes start to glaze over because they didn't expect such a complex explanation and they're bored.
