The Valentine's Day Social Experiment

14 one-liners that WON'T get your their number.

The Valentine's Day Social Experiment

On the 14th day of February, most famously known as Valentine’s Day, or as I call it, Single’s Awareness Day, I did not wallow in self-pity. I did not buy myself roses, or chocolate, or oversized stuffed animals; I didn’t even buy myself a heart shaped donut from Krispy Kreme. I didn’t look around at all the love-birds in the world, celebrating a day that encourages outrageous scales of forced affection (for some). No. While I congratulate all of you for finding that special someone and hopefully booking your restaurant reservation for this special evening five months in advance, I did not sit in my room by myself curled up with hot cocoa and Netflix. In fact, I did quite the opposite. I got my A-game on. Well, sort of…

On this most lovely of holidays I made an honorable effort to NOT get a guy’s number. I drove over to a relatively close college campus and walked around stopping any guy I met in his tracks and challenging him with my beauty, my wit, and my dazzling gaze. Okay, yeah right, I’ll cut the crap. In reality, I stopped any guy that passed me and held a brief, maybe two-minute conversation at best, and hit him with one of these top notch love-lingo lines. I hope you enjoy them, and I strongly suggest that you try them out for yourself.

  1. Hi, I am doing a survey. Would you mind filling it out for me? *hands over phone with contact page open*
  2. I forgot my phone number, would you mind giving me yours?
  3. I seem to have misplaced my phone, could you call it for me?
  4. You can either give me your credit card number or your phone number. Choose wisely.
  5. If it rains tomorrow, can I call you to go see a movie?
  6. I was reading through the book of Numbers last night and realized I don’t have yours.
  7. I’m filling out an application for a new job; can I use you for a reference? I’ll need your name, phone number, and the next Friday night you will be available.
  8. If I can’t find the science building, can I call you?
  9. If I were gambling, how likely would I be to get your number?
  10. I wish your name was Avogadro, because then I would already know your number.
  11. Will you show me how to get to the contact card on your phone?
  12. Just to be safe, I think you should give me your number.
  13. Are you from China, because I’m China get your number.
  14. Could you fix my phone? It doesn’t have your number in it.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
