Her unique approach to finding romance is earning her huge praise.
Asking someone out needs a lot of guts and sometimes the best pick-up lines. And this woman had it all. In a video shared on Reddit, a young woman can be seen walking up to a man at a party and telling him, "My friend over there thinks you are cute." When the man turns to look in the direction she points to, the clever woman goes and poses in the same spot. The video concludes with everyone laughing at her bold move.
The video is captioned, "She shot her shot" and has more than 116k upvotes. Internet users loved the way the woman advocated for herself without any hesitation. One Reddit user wrote, "That’s so cute. Love the humor and bravery to do it herself!" Another said, "I would be really impressed. Also: very cute and spunky. She seems to have the sparkly personality most men love. Probably would have worked on me."
Many shared their own experiences as well. One Reddit user wrote: "Back in 2011 I was invited to a party by a friend of mine. I noticed this one guy immediately and after a few sips of courage, I went and struck up a conversation with him. Five-ish minutes go by and his buddy walks up and says, 'Hey, you know he's single, right?' and I replied, 'how is that possible?! You're the cutest thing I've ever seen in real life!' An hour later I put my number in his phone. Started texting the next day and I asked him out a couple of days later."
Another commented: "I used to have a similar pick-up line. Instead of walking back over to the spot I would point to a group of friends and change the line to, 'My friend over there wants to know if you think I'm cute?' It would probably be best to point to your ugliest friend."
In another sweet story, a man named David Shoemaker proposed to his girlfriend, Ryaan Swann, during the commencement at Central Michigan University on December 17, 2022, and she said yes. They have been together for the last three years. The romantic moment took place when Shoemaker was standing on stage during the commencement, his family and Swann joined him to congratulate him. That’s when Shoemaker took Swann’s hand and asked her to marry him. Swann said that she “was not expecting it at all.” "It was crazy. It was one of the happiest moments of my life," said Shoemaker.
They had first met at Central Michigan University in the Towers Residence Halls three years ago. Swann said, “He pulled the whole he needs help with psychology and that's what I was studying. We became good friends, still didn't think anything of it and the next thing I knew he was asking me out on a date.” The duo dated throughout college and in May, they both graduated with their bachelor's degrees. Shoemaker finished his degree in Entrepreneurship and Swann in Psychology and Sociology with a Concentration in Youth Studies. Shoemaker said, “She’s the love of my life.”
He planned the proposal for the commencement and said, "Yeah, I couldn't have done it without President Davies help and all the CMU staff. I've been planning it since September emailing back and forth with them." Swann said that she's "still in shock honestly. I'm very happy."
