How to pick up running chicks? (Read 894 times)

    +1. Hi Harriet! What's a nice girl like you doing in a thread like this? Would you ever date a running goon?


    Well, the goon part is off-putting. I guess it would depend on where and how often he were able and willing to carry me around after picking me up. Sometimes I do wish to be carried places, as walking is such a drag.


      Sounds like a troll.





        LOL!  I was hoping someone would post a picture of a running chick.  Adorable!

        OP, in case you're not trolling, I don't have any experience picking up chicks (I think "women"/"girls" are okay terms.  I like "gals", too.  "Skirts" is also frowned upon) but as one I can tell you I probably wouldn't talk to some random guy that approached me on a run.  I'd be too busy trying to figure out if he's an axe murderer or not.  I have talked to guys after a race, though, and usually all it takes is something like, "How'd your race go?".  Don't say, "Are you the girl I outkicked at the end?"  Chicks hate that.  Still, I think you'd be better off joining a running group of some type so that you can actually get to know the gal and figure out whether the two of you are even compatible and she can scope you out a few times and assess whether you're an axe murderer or not.


        Now, can we have more pictures of chicks running, please?

          I think runner LADIES like it the best when you sprint past them and show them how fast you really are. lol

                    Tip #1


                    Don't be unattractive.

                    Feel sick and dirty, more dead than alive.

                      Hi there, I am a 26 yo runner who is looking for ways to actually meet a nice girl who I can date and run with.

                      This is hard for me, I have never had a relationship with a girl before.

                      Sorry .. but what exactly is hard for you?

                        "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."

                          It's 2013. I'd recommend 'bitches'. And uncountable number of rap artists can't be wrong.

                            Dress sharp, my man. Ladies love a blue blazer and a nice pair of cutoffs.

                                It's all about the pick up line.  Just make it running related.
