You Make For Good Breeding


That title up there ^^^^ is why I stay home and have not been out socializing as much as I used to. The other night I was out with some friends and a guy approached me and grabbed me by my wrist and pulled me up to him so we could dance. When he grabbed my wrist, I pulled away and gave him a quick evil eye and asked him, “Let me guess, your mother didn’t teach you any manners and now I’m forced to deal with your bullsh*t on the dance floor?”. After he noticed that I wasn’t amused by his antics he quickly apologized for his rudeness and asked politely if I wanted to dance.

So sure. I danced with the man for a few minutes. I like to keep my boundaries known when I’m dancing with a stranger. I don’t want to feel like I’m being groped, I don’t want to feel someones manhood rubbing up against my backside and I don’t want someone breathing down my neck. After our short dance, he offered to buy me a drink, but I told him I’d prefer a bottle of water. We chatted for a few and learned we had a few friends in common in the DC area. God only knows how small the world is and he definitely proved it.

He asked the typical, ‘size ’em up’ questions. You know. Where do you live? Got kids? What do you do? Where did you go to school? Where do you work? Since living in this area, I’ve somewhat gotten used to those questions because it seems as though people are constantly trying to out do each other.

The man seemed like a nice enough person, until he decided to tell me, “You make for good breeding”.

Record scratches.

I gave him my, “WHAT THE FUCK FACE????”

I took a few minutes to comprehend what he just told me and I asked him what exactly did he mean by that, considering the fact that the only breeding I know of is when my uncle used to breed dogs. The bamma, yes by this point I can only refer to him as a bamma, basically went on to state that from my looks I could either give him a tall son, considering that I’m about 5’10, who could either excel at football or basketball, or because of my looks, a pretty ass (these are his exact words) daughter with long curly hair! The bamma then went on to say that because I seemed to be ‘well-put-together’, that there is probably little that I would be dependent upon him for.

See ladies and gentlemen, this is why so many women are single nowadays. If these are the lines men are currently dishing out to women, shit, by all means get yourself a B.O.B (battery operated boyfriend), because obviously the pickings are slim.

Women & Men…I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s been subjected to crazy pick up lines…what are some of the ones you’ve heard?

      ..and I bet I wasn’t the first one he used that line on…

    LOL!! Oh my.
    Well I have to be honest. I’ve never said this as a pick up line, but once while talking to a really tall guy at a Chilli’s (he was actually the manager) I commented on his height. Then I said “wow, you’d breed great kids!”…. IT was weird after that. LOL

        LOL It just kinda came out. He was like “wow… really? LOL Is that an offer” and I was so caught off guard at what I’d said, and his response that I said emphatically “Goodness, NO!” (He wasn’t cute, just tall)
        But then to lighten it up (I was eating with co-workers) I was like “well, you see I hope to have football players, and I will be looking for a person of your height to make that into a reality with me”.

          well good to see you were able to lighten it
          he would have probably taken you up on your offer…you are a cute one! lol

    I get that a lot too because of the height. One guy actually said I should breed because of my teeth! Like a damn horse.

      Well Carla, you do have pretty teeth..! LOL!

    How awful. Too many men just don’t how to approach women. It’s so sad what black women have to put up with, myself included. You went out to have a nice evening with your girls and then, you meet some bamma who wants to give you a full inventory of your body. Another thing I can’t stand is when refer to women as “females” Yes, we’re female but so is my dog. I’d prefer we be called women, ladies, miss etc… I swear, I live in the DMV too, and meeting nice men and dating is a challenge.
    A guy once told me we’d make a great “power couple” because we’re both lawyers and part of the talented tenth. Please,… how pathetic.

    I cant even think of any pick up lines because that just has me flabbergasted that he would say that after ya’ll had already been talking for a while. PLus your better than me because after he approached me wrong… even after trying to make it right, I would have straight passed. He must have been cute for him to get a dance after that ignorant approach.

    ROFL! I thought the comment “you have the whole package” was strange from someone I’ve never met, but this tops it. Some dudes just don’t understand the ‘be yourself’ concept. Was that supposed to make you say “you’re right, let’s hop to it!”? He gets the Fred Sanford “Big Dummy” award.

      YOU BIG DUMMY!!! 🙂 LOL

      I’m upset u didn’t share any of your pick up lines!

    wow. It’s insane what people think they can say. I moved to Florida from NY when I was about 26 – I was out clubbing one night and this really good looking, rugged, cowboy type asked me to dance. In his southern drawl, he said, “I like you. You got good birthin’ hips for some young’uns”. There aren’t many times in my life that have rendered me speechless, but that was one. I just walked away.

    • January 13, 2009 - Reply


      I can just imagine him in his drawl saying that…lol!
      But I’ve actually heard men mention ‘baby bearing hips’ before…maybe there’s some truth to that lol

    wow…good breeding, huh? SMDH. Fail on so many levels…

    Too funny. I hope he didn't mean to say that out loud and it just slipped out.
