    Hey all,

    Anyone ever ask that question : What if? I had a one this past weekend....

    I was at a garage sale my familly was throwing. This familly speaking Polish comes up to the driveway and starts looking around. One of the members is a very hot looking lady, who seemed to be around my age...and stops by my table. She seemed interested in the stuff I had there, especially the Star Trek stuff, and I was thinking about starting up a conversation, but didn't think it would be appropriate to start some dating pickup lines at a garage sale, heh.

    So, I've got this question in mind. Are there any good themed Dating sites, for fans of Star Trek, Muppets, etc, to gather at, or just general talk sites?

    Who knows, maby I'll find someone like this lady there where it's more appropriate to start up a conversation [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Nah, you definitely missed an opportunity. Inappropriate is chatting up a hot looking widow at her husband's funeral. [​IMG]

    But you could have started some nice 'mutual interest lines', in fact a nice conversation, and let the inevitable develop.

    Yeah, I was thinking about that, and even did mention that if there was anything she was interested in, I could lower the prices for her... but it never got beyond that, heh.

    Ahh well....

    You just never know who is around when you make a play at someone.....
    Several years ago, a group of us were on a dirtbiking trip and in the campgrounds, we all noticed this hot looking babe with a group of people......later, out on the trail, several of us were taking a break at a water hole, when the hot babe came by and waved....one of her group, a guy, stopped to chat with us and the conversation inevitably went to the hot babe.....I asked if the hot babe was attached.... the guy asked "which one".... and I said "the one with the big blue eyes and big geogous boobs".... he just smiled and said...."oh yeah, she's my wife"..... he actually had a good laugh with us about it.

    Chatting up a friendly conversation with a tag sale goer = appropriate

    Grabbing her boobs and asking her bra size = inappropriate


    p.s. If you don't believe the above, my family is having a tag sale in a few weeks...I'll have to do some research [​IMG]

    If you approach it as a chat up opportunity, it will fail. If you TALK to her about her interests (Star Trek?) like a regular person then you can eventually get somewhere.

    Hot girls deal with guys feeding them lines all the time. What they don't get is a cool guy willing to talk to them like a human being about what interests them. Next time, just talk to her, light conversation is rarely inappropriate.

    Heh, I am now officially kicking myself for not carrying on that initial conversation start. Oh well, there's always the next garage sale [​IMG]...

    Let it be said that this is the first time in history the phrase "cool guy" and an interest in Star Trek are mentioned in the same thread.[​IMG]

    Yahoo! chatrooms. Thats how I find am my victims. [​IMG]


    On the oher hand you don't want to sound like that guy who takes out newspaper ads: "We met on the 419 busline. We didn't say anything but your eyes told me about how you wanted to have dozens of children with me. Please, I haven't been able to sleep since I saw you. If you read this reply to box # 27653."

    Girls are very clever too, especially the "hot" ones. Ever thought of the possibility that she wasn't that much interested in Star Wars at all?
    >>>>

    Yep. She came by the table twice.....And stayed there for a minute or two just looking at the stuff. I'm the shy type, so I didn't know if I should start the conversation or not, heh...


    Ahh well...There's always the next convention I go to to meet someone with the same intrests [​IMG]..


    Although you won't see me walking up to someone dressed in a Seven of Nine Borg outfit ;p...Only the non costumed variety of women [​IMG]

    Twice, eh?
    What else was there at, or close to, that table, Neil? That could so much interest a "hot looking" lady?

    Dude, you probably shouldn't have admitted that. Now you deserve to be slapped upside the head! [​IMG]

    Sounds like it's time for another garage sale. Who knows, maybe she'll show up again.
