Do you struggle to find the right words to say when you approach a woman with engorged love in your heart? Commenter plumpjack stumbled on a line that I think would work well as an opener (or post-opener segue) in all sorts of contexts — offline, online, and between the lines.
“I’m a cold-blooded killer who likes to spoon.”
The line is effective whether you smirk it off with a knowing twinkle in your eye, or you deadpan it and keep her guessing…and geysering. You can go in any direction no matter how she replies.
HER: really? so you’re a softie on the inside?
BEETLEJUICE’S BASED STICKMAN: for you.
Have fun with this. The true value of the line is how it will reorient your electric ham along a less beta, more alpha axis of insolence. The very act of saying this line, and owning it for fun and profit, will work wonders on your self-conception, imbuing you with the same feeling that professional womanizers enjoy every time they go out and talk to women. And that feeling’s name is COCKY JERKBOY ENTITLEMENT. (chicks dig it)
