The hardest part about meeting someone is always the approach. So today we’ve got four tips from Match.com about what you SHOULD and SHOULDN’T DO when you’re making the first move. Listen up . . .
#1.) Make Eye Contact. We all know eye contact is important when you’re talking to someone. But if you’re thinking about approaching a random stranger, you should always make eye contact BEFORE you make any kind of move.
–That way, they’ll know you’re interested, and you can get a feel whether the attraction is mutual. Plus, they won’t be caught completely off-guard when you do eventually go up to them.
#2.) Don’t Use a Line. Most women have heard every line in the book, so it’s not going to sound genuine. A simple way to start a conversation is just to introduce yourself. That’s it. Or, as a back up, have something to say about wherever you are. Just don’t ask, “Do you come here often?”
#3.) Use Humor. Using humor is great because it’s not aggressive, like a pick-up line. Plus, if you can make someone laugh, they’re more likely to keep talking to you even if they’re not feeling it right away.
#4.) Be Careful with Your Compliments. Telling a woman she has a great body is WAY too sexual when you’re just meeting her. So if you’re going to compliment her looks, stick to her eyes, her smile, or her hair.

You’re probably thinking, “Isn’t this just legalized hitchhiking??” yeah, pretty much but I would check it out. You got to be sure though. I mean, if College Station was the metro size of say… Houston, Heck yes. It’s free, easy and you can decide whether or not the “slugger” you’re commuting with is trust worthy.

For a girl, she loves the names Gia and Isabella. She also likes the name Giana.
If it’s a boy, she would consider the names Tony and Frankie. She’d also think about honoring her new fiancé, Jionni LaValle, by naming the child Jionni Jr. By the way, Snooks isn’t Italian… just pointing that out.
What italian names (boy or girl) would you recommend?

Zac Efron was on “Conan” last night and admitted that he used to sing Beach Boys with his friends on the streets of France. Conan O’Brian, being the slap stick host that he is, asked Zac if he would join himself and LaBamba in singing THE BEACH BOY’S “Barbara Ann”. It’s actually pretty GOOD! check it out below.
