Hey dudes, let’s make a resolution for the 2010, better yet, for at least the next decade. No more catcalls! I was at the mall the other day and as I walked past this guy he proclaimed, “Hey baby looking good, you remind me of my sister.” Really dude, I remind you of your sister? Would you hit on your sister like that then? If so, that’s nasty because we are definitely not The Bradys. In case you didn’t get the reference, the actors who played Greg and Marsha Brady dated briefly off set…but I digress.
My point in all this is that it’s annoying when dudes yell stuff to chicks in public. What annoys me the most is when a dude yells, “Ay yo shawty come here”. First of all, stranger danger; and secondly who are you calling shawty? You are like 5 feet 2 inches and I’m 5 feet 8 inches, so why don’t you climb a ladder to get at my eye level and see the look of disgust on my face. I have nothing against shorter guys, the point is I don't like being catcalled.
There are times when it is appropriate to approach a woman, but the mall is not one of them (at least for me). The only thing I’m attracted to when I shop is a new pair of shoes. I’m not saying that guys shouldn't approach a girl they find attractive, but do it with some finesse. Below is a list of appropriate ways to approach a lady. Caution: The success rate of these guidelines depends on the situation and the girl's mood. Thank me later.1. Do not be disrespectful (no baby, shorty, girl, etc). a.Try instead, “Hey my name is (insert name), what’s your name?” or some uncreepy variation. 2. Do not scream from across the room. a.Instead walk over to her. You’ll lose calories and gain the girl’s respect all at the same time. 3. Do not whistle or make weird sounds. a.Women are not dogs who come when you call. If you bark like that you will get bit. 4. Be able to take rejection. a.If she doesn’t seem responsive, let it go and move on. As Jay-Z says, “On to the next one”. 5. Never sneak up behind her. a. That’s just creepy and can result in injury on your part. 6. Don’t use one-liners. a. That’s just corny. 7. Be yourself. a. Cliché but true.Don't act like someone you're not because she'll eventually find out. Dishonesty is something a woman hates more than anything else.
Below is exactly what you should not do. If you haven’t seen this video before then watch it now because it’s hilarious.
