The forgotten New Year resolution

I totally forgot about that cuz I made this promise on Dec 30: Once I’ve arrived in the new city, I’ll chat up at least one cute guy every week. I’ll be brave and introduce myself with confidence even if we are just strangers on the bus. As long as he’s cute enough and doesn’t look like a serial killer or has a ring on, I’ll do it.

I’m gonna say, “Hey, I’m Nicky. How are you?” All smiling. Friendly smile, not creepy (I think) smile.

Hopefully he’ll welcome my bold move and not call 911 or whatever emergency number that they use in the Southern Hemisphere.

I promised my friend I’ll do that (who happens to also read this blog), and I don’t break promises! I’m a woman of my words! In fact, I’m gonna Google “pick up lines for cute guys” like right now. Readers, especially male readers, any suggestions? Would you call 911 if an Asian girl with a strange, mixed, half American accent randomly says hi to you on public transportation while you’re listening to Imagine Dragons or whatever hot guys listen to these days? Please weigh in!
