"Spiritual" Pickup Lines
I haven't been here long. But I've been here long enough to know that guys at Seminary have found a way to even make pickup lines sound spiritual. I haven't been subjected to any of them (but one); however, I've certainly witnessed a few. The easiest one is to lean over and ask the girl, "Hmm, what version are you using?" Or ... this one comes from a friend of mine: "So ... what church do you go to? Yeah, I'm still looking. Mind if I go with you sometime?" Thankfully, none but the first have been directed towards me ... but I have an idea that there are more out there.
The other nuns thought that I should take a blog survey on this. What are some of the cheesiest "spiritual" pickup lines that you've heard?
Here's a few to get you started.
"I just don't feel called to celibacy."
"Did I tell you that my great-uncle was a personal friend of Billy Graham?"
"What do you think Paul meant when he said, 'Greet everyone with a holy kiss'?"
"I'm pretty flexible--I don't think a woman should be submissive on the first date."
"Before tonight, I never believed in predestination..." (this guy probably wasn't a H.C.G.)
"I hear there's going to be a love offering tonight."
Just for the record, I'm only doing this because it brings a laugh. It's not intended make fun of anybody. I think they're funny ... so just be aware that if you use one on one of us ... I hope your purpose is to make us laugh.
