    just be yourself,

    you can’t sell something which isn’t there (or which you don’t own)

    I could sell you the Brooklyn Bridge though

    Snapple fun facts. That’s always a great opener. Plus, the Ami kid section’s “12 things about <varies each week>”

    Plus, that will show what you read (in addition to the WSJ, of course)

    1. that actually happened (if anyone here remembers history class)

    2. I wouldn’t buy it

    For me this always works (can’t overdo it with the same girl though). Point out something random around you, and completely make something up about it. For example, point to a nearby painting or sculpture or whatever, and say, “did you know that that painting was created in 1852 in honor of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday?!” When she says, “really?”, or “how do you know?”, you say, “oh, I have no idea – I made it up!” Gets a laugh every time.

    During one semester at college I used to get a ride home with another guy from yeshiva. One evening he was having a test and asked if I could get a ride home from someone else in the class.

    I answered that the only other frum people who live nearby are females and it will be yichud at that hour.

    He (jokingly) told me that there is no issur of yichud with a girl taking calculus.

    For some reason I decided to repeat this on a date and the girl just stared at me stone faced.

    “You don’t find that funny?” I asked.

    “Uh, I’m currently taking Calc II”.

    Well, she ended up saying “no”, I can’t imagine why?

    #775059

    ok, my ego’s been shut down! 🙂 Truth is, I wouldn’t do it to everyone. Only to someone who appreciates dumb sarcastic humor….

    I agree. Some of the stories guys have said were really funny but at the same time really inappropriate for a date.

    How about the column “Weird But True” from the NY Post? You can’t make this stuff up.

    I can see that being either really cute or completely annoying, I guess it depends on how good your delivery is.

    One guy I went out w told me a some ‘funny’ story about how he pranked a shop keeper in Israel… I though he was a jerk. I said no.

    (Not only because of the story, he was an all around jerk.)

    Be careful about the stories you tell…

    um. Tell her you can make milk come out of your nose when you laugh. That might make a few laughs. If it doesnt, order some milk.

    Random advice to guys- really random things can make a first date uncomfortable so keep any extreme stories to yourself

    I actually did with a guy. I tried figuring out his screen name but couldn’t.

    Try to go with a girl to someplace very busy. I used to take girl to anyplace in midtown manhattan and wing it from there. The advantage of midtown manhattan is that anywhere you turn you have something to discuss, something to see and you never know who you might see or meet (still remember the time I bumped into Michael J Fox, the comedian Freddie Roman and and a couple of NY Rangers including John Vanbiesbrouk – I had a roomate who came back from a date to the dorm with a napkin signed by mike tyson). If you still cant figure it out, you can always go into a hotel lobby, order a drink and talk about the things you saw outside.

    Share funny other people stories, that way you don’t seem strange, things just happen to “people you know”

    My personal favorite: Take the date to a Barnes and Noble Kids section. BIG conversation starter (especially “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” and Dr. Suess)

    I took my dates to Jekyll & Hyde…that was always an AWESOME place to go if you lack any conversational openers.

    Was the … “will you marry me?”

    “We got married 5 months later.”

    That’s a long engagement!
