"Rosie the Riveter" is a cultural icon representing the American woman working during WWII. She symbolizes the strong, independent woman of that time. -- Now, more than 70 years later, the symbol stands as strong as she. I am proud to be a woman and am grateful for other brave women before me that endured the struggle of sexism and paved the equal path to our society today.

These are the confessions, lessons learned and experiences from my life. A single, independent, strong, young professional woman living in a busy Downtown city in Northern California.

Embracing my domesticity while enjoying the freedom of being perfectly lonely.

Pick me up, baby!

Either it's been done or you've had it done to you.

I would say get your mind out of the gutter but it should just stay there for this post.

I'm talking about PICKUP LINES here! These are some of the best of the worst pickup lines ever used on me. 
Events based on true stories....boy scouts honor.


  • Regular print is the dude. Italics are me :) "You look really smart, can you help me with something? I really want to go up to this hot girl and tell her she's pretty but I don't know how....what do you suggest *wink wink*"

  • "My buddies and I have a wager on how tall you are...wanna stand up and twirl around for me?" 
  • "How are you?" I'm fine how are you? "Yeaaa you are""You're hotter than a campfire & I want S'more...." - (via Yelp, no lie)
  • "They say a picture is worth a 1,000 words; I read this one twice." - alright, this one totally made me laugh. 
  • "You're so cool, polar bears wear sweaters around you." 
  • "Si fueses una falla valenciana serĂ­as... ¡de traca!".... which means in English: "If you were a failure Valencia would be ...fireworks!" - Not quite sure what that means but okay Ernie! (also via
  • "Your feet are amazing! We could do a photoshoot of just your feet. I'll call it SacramenTOES"
  • "I bet I make more money than you can spend" - yaaaa right buddy!! 
  • "Roses are red. Violets are blue. Fireball costs less than a dinner for two. Let's get faqd up!"  
  • I had a drink in my hand & a guy came up to me and said, "You trying to get hammered??" I replied, no just having a drink. Are you?" He said, "Just trying to hammer you girlllll." I think my eyes still hurt from rolling them. 

  • I'd hit it.

A very special thank you to all you creepers who think pick up lines still work :) 
Keep up the entertainment.

& be prepared for a part 2...I'm sure it will happen sooner than later.


  1. I feel like Brian is responsible for the polar bear one....lmao.

    And my favorite of all time, at the Arco by Foothill when I was 17:

    "Sup wit you and yo thick self? Can I ride wit you?"


  2. So, it wasn't a pick-up line per se, but we were at Shore Club on Sunday and this old guy comes up to my friend Jenn and her bf Keiran and he bets Jenn a drink he can guess her bf's name...we all stared with confused looks...then he points at him and says "His name is Lucky."

    Well played, sir.
