    Cool, I only watched the intro. Did you win? What was it like?
    Yes we won 235c-60 against the Royal Vetinary College. It was a relief more to avoid the embarrassment of being knocked out in the first round when representing such a big institution.

    Haha... yeah, I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not. I'm going to guess you are.

    Also, I don't mean I'd give a number to a guy who just came up completely out of the blue and goes 'Canihaveyournumberplease?' I mean the ones who make a bit of an effort, and try to start a conversation by paying me a compliment or asking a question or something...
    I wasn't actually..

    I agree about the second point though; it's actually interesting how many girls take questions like "when's the next train?" as cues to start an in-depth conversation...

    Obviously I'd never go that far (or that scummy tbh; nice southern boy), but sometimes when I was lazy I'd just say:
    "Wow, you're so beautiful, I'd just love to talk to you for 2 minutes"
    It was meant as a bit of a joke, but when i told my mates I'd said it, they were shocked/appalled. I don't think I'd ever use it in a proper social situation, but is it reaally that bad to say? I had moderate success in stopping people with it; but it might just because Leeds is full of students (who are nicer)
    To be honest, yeah anything to strike a conversation. First impressions are everything... a boy walks up and yells "CAN I HAVE YOUR NUMBER BABE" infront of his rather rank friends I would just smile and say no sorry I don't give it to strangers. If a nice young guy came up and started talking I would be much more likely to want to speak to him again
    I am from the South too aha

    AND I LOVE THE COLOUR PINK
    I do indeed, little plastic guns and cars. :yes:

    What an exciting interest !

    Paris Hilton is too unintelligent to be idolized surely.

    She is a sad example of a Barbie. Barbie had lots of careers you know.. Doctor, teacher, lawyer, olympic gold medalist, rock star,

    YEAHH Barbie was a busy bee

    Just do it. Build it up if you have to. Start by asking for directions if need be. Like where is starbucks etc. Then after that start with convos. Just cause you have a girlfriend doesn't mean you can't talk to other girls. I say have as many girl-friends (difference here) as you like.

    :eek: I didn't know that. She sounds busy!

    Well here's a similarity. Doesn't Paris (:indiff:) have a lot of careers as well? Socialite, singer, actress, model? :holmes:

    What would you like to do career wise? Become a WAG?

    No, just really sweet, haha. I'd love it if something like that happened to me!

    Question. If the guys flirts well and is really fun etc... please tell me at least then you'd give him your number.
    Yeah, I guess I would. If we talked for a bit and he was attractive and seemed like a cool guy, then yeah, why not? Never happened before, though. I seem to attract creeps/chavs, unfortunately.

    Oh right, my mistake. 'Tis true, actually, I met a French guy at a bustop at 2.30am Monday night (well, Tuesday morning I guess) and we ended up talking for ages. We started talking because my head was in the way of the timetable he was trying to look at, and he asked if I'd move!

    Sorry to side track the thread a bit.

    But yes it is/was actually me. I am the person who appeared to answer 'sorry' to one of the questions. I have a summer job working for an electrical contractor working on building sites with lots of rude and crude builders and they don't let me forget that i am a 'lazy student'. Oh - and thanks , perhaps I should try asking girls in the street.

    I think its the same for (some/most?) boys tho. Talking to a stunning girl from Wales, who then told me she had a "Yeasty Clunge" (as a joke), but still put me off. Those words should never be uttered by anyone.

    Northerners are nicer, at least thats what I reckoned from my street adventure. Southerners are so stiff. Its a stereotype, but a true-ish one. Tho I was called a Southern Fairy a few times

    Paris hasn't worked for anything she has. Her Dad is famous so she became famous for being blonde and ditzy. She isn't amazingly successful in Modelling or singing or actressing to be honest

    NO! I do not want to be a WAG :eek:
    Why would you think that?

    I have no idea what I want to do after A Levels to be honest. I do have an interest in Business though and make earrings by hand and sell them, recently had a jewellery store interested in putting them in their store and sharing the money with me. So hey, who knows. :woo:

    What career would you like?

    You are slightly patronising
