How to pick up women at bus stops

Spotted this hand-scrawled and photocopied personals ad duct-taped to a bus shelter at the corner of Keele St. and Glenlake Ave.:

I guess that degree in testosterone didn’t include any courses in marketing.  Consider including  important data for the woman to consider, such as:

  • Interests and activities (i.e. potential topics of conversation) other than movies, foot massage and buxom ladies.  Somehow you have to get past the “weirdo” perception that comes from taping hand-scrawled personal ads to bus shelters.
  • Personal values, goals in life.  It might help a teeny tiny bit if you and your prospective mate had similar value systems and goals in life.
  • Employment status.  When you go visit her folks in Calgary, are you riding there?
  • Age of the poster and prospective dates.  Need more specifics.  If I were less kind and had more time on my hands (i.e. was a teenager on summer vacation) I would photocopy the hell out of this ad and tape it up everywhere it was guaranteed to get the wrong kind of attention.  Retirement homes, elementary schools, etc.
  • The number of movie posters/action figures per square foot at one’s primary residence.  Just a hunch but I’m betting it’s somewhere around three, minimum.

Good luck fella, you’re going to need it.
