How to Stage Your Own Meet-Cute! ;) [Cupid's Countdown]

No date for Valentines Day?! Fear not!! I am here with friendly tips and tricks to get a nice date (like the ones from the movies!), just in time for Valentine's Day.
An easy way to get a quick date, is to introduce yourself to some REALLY FAST. And how do people do that? Well, a meet cute of course.
What is a meet-cute? According to TVTropes.org, it's a way to quickly introduce two characters and set up their burgeoning relationship. It's often used in films, particularly the Romantic Comedy. This meeting can happen by way of any of an innumerable array of circumstances, so long as there's something cutesy about it.

Alrighty, now time to create your own!

Step 1: Set the scene!

Every meet-cute begins with a cute place to meet (see what I did there?) Think about where cute couples meet in movies, and that will help you set the scene. Some examples include: bookstores, coffee shops, your workplace (but like, late at night or alone in the elevator ONLY), the supermarket and at the movies by yourself.

Step 2: Practice your dialogue!

Some cute ideas for working on what to say is mess up on what you are saying! Accidentally messing up on your words is encouraged, so practice accidentally saying something wrong, or accidentally slipping in that you think they are gorgeous. Just make sure to make is sound silly and adorable and sweet! You want the other person to think, "aww they are so flustered and cute!"

Step 3: Come up with the blocking!

In theatre-speak, blocking is essentially the movements you make in the scene. So, try to coordinate your movements. Work and practice how these movements are going to play out.
For example, you want to meet your cutie at a coffee shop, by spilling your coffee on him? Practice spilling coffee on other people! Make sure you do this at least 10 times so you can precisely spill on his shirt and have a good laugh about it later.
The main thing you have to practice is your deer-in-the-headlights face. Though you are staging this meet-cute yourself, you still have to act SO SURPRISED ABOUT EVERYTHING.

Step 4: Find a cutie and INITIATE.

If you have a cutie in mind that you've seen around, then this might require a bit of planning. Try following them for a day to get their schedule down! If you don't have a cutie, feel free to wait in your space for one to come in! Be prepared to hang at that coffee shop for a while, but you know, it's worth it for the cutie!

Does this all sound really hard and complicated? No worries! I have now come up with a list of scenarios for you to pick from! You are welcome!

Scenario 1: Playing with your waffles at a quaint restraint, look extra confused with the waffle door, so a handsome man comes up and offers to help fix your waffle house!
Scenario 2: Bump into someone on the street at while holding a glass of OJ. Apologize a lot, have some witty banter, and then ask her out for drinks!
Scenario 3: Meet your really cute boss on the first day. Mess up your words, accidentally curse, but look really cute while you are doing it. He'll be smitten and profess his love sometime later.
Scenario 4: Run away from your thousands of adoring fans, hop along a rooftop, and jump into a car that is moving to escape the fans! Makes sure the moving car has a cutie in it that you'll hate then eventually fall in love with.
Well, that last one is a little tough, but you get my point. Pretty much steal the situation from any Romantic Movies, and play it out in real life. Good luck meeting those cuties with your meet cute.
Tagging all the Cupid's Countdown friends! I hope you enjoy!

5 Steps: How To Talk To Your Crush
I believe you, talking to your crush is an uphill task. It takes all your guts to go up to him and strike a conversation and knowing what to say to make him comfortable so he talks to you again is a struggle, but you’re not alone in it. To help you achieve this goal, I’ve 5 powerful step that will help you talk to your crush. #1 Prepare First and foremost, preparation is the key. Invest some time in preparation so that you are confident enough when you finally approach your crush. Imagine taking a math exam without prior practice and exercise, you are bound to fail. Are you not? Similarly, dire preparation is needed to confirm success. Put in thought and time into winning your crush - may be prepare a list of questions to ask your crush. #2 Approach Him It is important to know and understand when and how to approach a guy you have a crush as it can be a bit tricky. You’ve never spoken to him, so it’s best advise that you approach him when you are alone to ensure that your very first interaction is casual and not many people around to distract you. #3 Start A Conversation Next step is to start a conversation which is not OTT and sails between casual talk and I’m interested in you. It can start with a simple ‘Hi’ and you can take it forward by introducing yourself or you can also play smart by asking for help with something as simple as “Hey, what is the way to the library?”. Now that you have his attention, you can introduce yourself. #4 Keep The Conversation Going Having the skill to keep the conversation with your crush is the key to his heart. This very conversation will set the base if he is going to want any future conversations with you or spend time with you. If you are unable to attract or hold his attention to the point that he gets interested, then you have lost your chance and he would probably not want to talk to you again. So, try to be your most interesting self in your unique way. #5 Compliment Him Yes, yes I know, girls are born to take compliments, not give them! But darling, you need to learn the art of complimenting a guy if you want to convert your crush into your soon to be lover. Compliments do take the conversations ahead, just indicate how you guys have so much in common. Hope this helps!
Want a Really Fun Date Night? Get Onboard With These Drinking Games For Two!
Are you looking forward to plan a date which is out of the ordinary? Then what’s better than having a drinking games night. This idea is sure to make an impression and give you a good time. That being said, are you prepared to ditch the typical dinner date for something fun and challenging? This is your way to go. 1. Go fish I’m sure you would have heard of this card game before. It’s a pretty simple game and most of us have tried our hands at this when we were little kids. But you can turn into an adult drinking game by bringing in some liquor. Whenever the other person gets a pair, you go a peg down. Whoever has the maximum matches wins while the loser takes another shot! 2. Never have I ever If you haven’t played this game before, then you’ve seriously missed out on so much fun. This game is a hit at parties and get togethers, but you can also enjoy it on your date nights. This will help you learn more about your partner and see what the two of you share in common. The rules are simple - the game starts with one person saying what they’ve never done before and in case the other person has done that then they drink. 3. Buzz This is one of those games which can pose some serious couple challenges as it involves them to be good at math! Whether you’re cooking dinner together or waiting for it at the restaurant, all you have to do is count. The catch is that everytime you get a multiple of 7, you say ‘Buzz’. Whoever misses, loses! But hey, you drink first and then start over. 4. Two truths, one lie This is another fun game which can be played without alcohol, but drinking makes it so much more fun. I bet, you’ve already played this game at your workplace or at school. All you have to do is tell your date two truths and one lie about yourself and ask them to guess. If they guess it correctly, then you drink and if they fail, then they go down. 5. Mustache and a movie This one is a comical game which will leave the two of you laughing while enjoying a movie. To do this, all you need is to place a fake mustache on your TV at a random and play the movie. Whenever the mustache covers someone’s face at the right spot, you take a drink. Cheers!
