pick up women

About three months ago, my sister discovered this beautiful 1955 Dodge Jobline pick-up truck in a local Charleston newspaper. Knowing how much I’d always dreamed of owning a 1950′s red pick-up, she rang to tell me about the listing and I located it online. We talked about how beautiful it was and of all the things we’d love to do with the truck, but the price was simply too high and over time, we soon forgot about her.

Then, about two weeks ago, our Granny passed away and I found myself back in S.C. for her burial. One day shortly after, with emotions still at an all-time high, my sister and I decided we would go kayaking where our Granny and Grandpa were born and raised. It would’ve been a great trip, except none of the weather forecasters had predicted the severe thunderstorms that ensued and we quickly found ourselves in need of alternative plans. What better to do than shop, right?

With our trip canceled, we found ourselves riding around Mt. Pleasant with a ridiculously large two-person kayak on our roof and "nothing" to do. I mentioned thinking it would be nice to go back and check out this 1960′s “Endless Summer” type canary yellow station wagon we’d passed the day before, so we headed to the garage where it was parked. After perusing a wide array of vintage vehicles, we made out way to the garage and struck up a conversation with the mechanics. We inquired about some of the vintage vehicles and mentioned we’d found a red 1950’s red pick-up a few months back and asked if they’d ever seen one. They mentioned knowing of both a black and a white 1950′s truck, but no red one. As the conversation neared the ½ hour mark, one of the mechanics remembered he’d seen a red 1950’s pick-up parked at a law firm not far from the shop. As soon as he said this I thought (and my sister claims I said out loud), “That’s it!”.

After getting a few other places / people’s names who might know where to find a 1950’s pick-up, we took our chances and headed to see the truck the mechanic had mentioned seeing "a while back". We had nothing to lose by looking. As soon as we saw the vehicle and drove around the back-end, I knew it was the same one my sister had found three months prior. On the driver’s door window hung a sign advertising a slashed price and a phone number. After taking some photos and checking out the vehicle, my sister rang the listed number. We’d both just assumed the truck belonged to a man, so when a woman answered, she was surprised. After speaking for a few minutes, it became clear the voice at the other end was not going to “hand the phone over” (to a man). So, my sister asked, "Are you the owner?", to which the woman replied, "Yes!".

Needless to say, I think we were all a little surprised. The owner – Christine – explained she’d moved to Charleston from NYC to get into the bakery business and had bought the truck to "pick up men" – yes, that’s why she’d gotten it. At this juncture, my sister looked like she’d seen a ghost. There were several reasons for this "ook". One being, she’d been born in NY and two, her sister (that’d be me) currently lives there. Thirdly, she’d been trying to figure out how to transition out of a career in radio and was thinking of starting a baking business! I’m not kidding. When she asked Christine if owning the truck had indeed helped her meet any men, she said it hadn’t, but that the truck had been rented quite a few times for photo shoots and commercials. Gears in our heads quickly began turning. And Christine was so happy that women were calling about the truck because she specifically wanted to sell the truck to a female. She told us to go into the offices and get the keys to go for a spin.

She’d also mentioned the mechanic who’d worked on the truck was close by and told us where to find his garage. After going in and speaking with a lovely woman who had some problem locating the keys, we went back outside to wait. After a few minutes, the keys arrived and the girl mentioned if we could wait, that the mechanic who’d worked on the vehicle would be coming by to pick both she and her Mum in a few minutes. Huh? Why?!? Because the mechanic was her father! When we heard this, it was like a bolt of lightening had struck. How was it possible the mechanic we’d just been told about and whom we were going to go visit would be coming to us? Things were just getting too weird, so, of course, we waited. It seemed kizmit was taking over at this juncture.

It had been a while since I’d driven a standard, though it’s been my main transmission for the majority of my driving years, so I wasn’t too worried. And, my sister had learned how to drive a standard shift on a tractor on someone’s farm, so between the two of us, we thought we’d be okay. Not long after, the mechanic arrived. If seemed the truck hadn’t been started in a while, so he had to jump-start her and we all piled in. He took us to a nearby car park and we drove around back to an empty area. My sister decided to go first and we all had a really good laugh. Next, it was my turn and after the mechanic properly explained the H-gear pattern, I did an so-so job with the ½ ton, no power steering, no power breaks slant V6 badass – though this isn’t to say it wasn’t nerve-racking as hell! Not only was she extremely difficult to maneuver, but somehow driving her made one’s hands completely black and at some point, we’d all touched our faces and had black marks all over ourselves and our clothing. We looked like Al Jolsen in his black-face – except, in reverse!

After returning to the law firm, we said we’d be back in a few days. We spent a day trying to figure out how we could make getting this truck happen and returned to take (what we’d already named) “Big Red” to a few mechanics shops and restoration experts the following day. Before getting out on crowded main roads, we decided to get some more practice driving the truck and so, after some quick cleaning of the windows and interior, we headed back to that nearby car park.

It’s a good thing my sister had learned to drive on a tractor, because on this particular 97degree afternoon, “Big Red” was akin to driving around in a 1/2 ton tractor. Driving Red was roughly the equivalent to taking part in a triathlon in 105 degree temperatures. Because she’s so hard to drive, on one occasion, I had to grab the giant wheel and help my sister make a turn! Yes, it took two of us and we’re both over 5”10, with plenty of muscle. Oh how I was beginning to appreciate power steering!

Jerking in-and-out-of all three gears, my sister finally stalled Big Red for a second time – sending us to a halting stop. Sweating and dirty, she screamed out in frustration, “Oh my God, I can’t do this! We’re crazy! This is never going to work!”. Searching for the inspirational words an older sibling is supposed to have at the ready, I turned my head and spotted this white big rig parked just beside us and nearly fainted. For, it was a Cardinal line truck with no more than two cardinal emblems – one on the cab and one on the trailer – emblazoned upon it.

You see, our Grandfather, who had died when we were very small was a country boy (related to Swamp Fox – yeah!) and his favorite bird was the cardinal. We know anytime one crosses our paths, to pay close attention. Gasping, I directed her attention right toward the “cardinal spotting” and we both nearly lost it. Tears welled up in both our eyes. My sister then took a deep breath and said, “Did you see the pair of cardinals fly past us as we drove back here?”. I hadn’t and said so, but quickly grabbed my camera to capture the rig carrying the cardinal message from our Gran.

While neither said so, in that moment, I think we both knew we’d buy the 1955 Dodge- even before we took her to get checked out. Can’t go against the elders, right? We offered nearly half the original price and Christine accepted. So, if for any reason, you’re in need of a classic 1955 Dodge pick up truck in fire engine red, you know who to contact!

Picking up women may not be your best skill. Luckily, you don’t need any special talent. Knowing how to get women to adore you is not a natural gift. It’s actually something that anyone can learn, regardless of age, experience, etc. You’re probably sick and tired of all the rejection you’ve experienced over the years from women and you might even think that there is no chance you’re going to find anyone at all. There is good news. You will find someone. As a matter of fact, there isn’t a guy on this planet who cannot become an expert at picking up women, but of course, some effort is required.

Luckily for you, picking up women won’t be as difficult as you think. The first thing you must do is go where the women are. You can sit inside your house and daydream all day about the type of woman you want to end up with, but unless you go out and find her, nothing will happen.

Before going out to find the woman or women you seek, you must look your best. Take some time to fix your hair and put on a nice outfit. Making sure that you’re attractive is a requirement. Your looks will be her first impression of you. You want to make sure that you exude an attractive, well-groomed vibe. Women find men who do not take care of themselves quite disgusting and usually won’t pay them any attention when approached by them.

]]>

When it comes to going out and actually picking up women, the place you go is very important. Are you a confident individual? If so, then you won’t mind competing against the other guys in more popular social settings such as clubs and bars. If you’re not so confident, you might even want to consider visiting a library, mall, or even a public event such as a job fair or possibly your local flea market. Wherever there are females is acceptable.

As soon as you spot a woman you’re attracted to, you must approach her. You want to make sure that you do this in a very subtle way. The last thing you want her to think is that you are hitting on her. Women find men who hit on them from the outset very unattractive. Start off by talking about something external such as the weather or the place you are in. You might even want to accidentally “bump” into her. Whatever you do, make it subtle and inoffensive.

Your next step for picking up women is to keep things short and sweet. Once you establish a connection with her, quickly act as if you have something else to do. Never give your entire self to her, as this is one of the few ways to keep her interested in you. If you express your undying love for her from the very beginning, your relationship will end quicker than it started because there will be nowhere else to go.

So, basically, all you have to do is play it smooth. Think highly of yourself and go after the women whom you don’t think you can get. Before you know it, you’ll have women coming on to you because they’ll know that there is just something about you that women like. After a bit of effort, you’ll see that picking up women isn’t difficult at all.

flirt with a girl

While I still have many parts of New York City left to explore, I realized the other day that I don’t always have to go looking elsewhere for interesting photographs; some of it is available just outside my front door.

I live on a street corner on the Upper West Side of Manhattan where there’s an express stop on the IRT subway line, a crosstown bus stop, an entrance to the West Side Highway, and the usual range of banks, grocery stores, fast-food shops, mobile-phone stores, and other commercial enterprises. As a result, there are lots of interesting people moving past my apartment building, all day and all night long.

It’s easy to find an unobtrusive spot on the edge of the median strip separating the east side of Broadway from the west side; nobody pays any attention to me as they cross the street from east to west, and nobody even looks in my direction as they cross from north to south (or vice versa).

So, these are some of the people I thought were photo-worthy during the past few days; I’ll add more to the collection as the summer progresses … unless, of course, other parts of New York City turn out to be more compelling from time to time.

One of the greatest perks about being a girl is you can almost get away from everything unscathed — all you need to do is act sweet and cute! Well, when it comes to attracting guys, there are a few lessons you need to learn. Below are some hot and sizzling flirting tips for girls you surely don’t want to miss:

Play a little hard to get. Guys a little challenge and the more you try to turn away, the more he’ll try to reach you no matter what it takes — so don’t be available for him 24/7, never text or call him the whole day. Guys will work harder for you when you aren’t easy-to-get.
Give him double meanings. Nothing can rile a guy better then letting him hang on for a little bit — but don’t lead him on when you don’t really have any feeling for him. Lead him on only if has the shots for you — but prolong the excitement. He’ll be more attracted and yearning for you if you do.
Look and feel good. Being beautiful will always rank high in every guy’s standards so it pays to make extra time looking and feeling good. Be beautiful inside and out — it’s going to make you more attractive and lovable.
Always maintain eye contact. Keeping his gaze while talking is one of the strongest flirting signals there is — it’s also one of the most undeniable signs of attraction so don’t b scared to maintain the look — it is a sure fire way to build and create sexual tension.

Daily Photo – Six Girls in New Zealand Getting Meat
While on a long drive from the Coromandel to Matamata (where The Shire is), we pulled into this pizza place to stock up on some much needed carbs. I saw these six girls lined up so perfectly, I had to grab a quick shot.

Most places in New Zealand outside of the cities seem to shut down about 8 PM. I had to start getting used to planning ahead to get dinner! It’s hard for me because I usually just go go go go until after sunset, taking photos like a madman… and THEN I think about dinner. But that trick doesn’t really work when you’re on the road there…
New Silver Efex Pro Shot
In my few workshops, I always take time to show off this tool. If you want to see more, see my Silver Efex Pro Review here on the site. For those of you that have tried it before, then I probably don’t even need to tell you!

Since you guys know I am kind of a color-centric kind of guy, this thing has to be pretty cool in order for me to use it… Actually, I’d like to do a great deal more black & white stuff, but I know most people like the colorful stuff. I’ll continue to sprinkle these in from time to time if that is okay!
