I know reposts are totally lazy and lame, but please forgive me on this one. I’ve been swamped with work this week (in a good way! In a “I actually like what I’m doing!” way) and handling social media and blogging for others means I haven’t had much time to do it for myself. Anyway, here is an article I wrote for Love Twenty this week that chronicles a hilarious incident from junior year of college, courtesy of a special someone.
Let me set the scene: you’re at a party looking adorable (of course) when across the room, you see a guy. A really, really cute guy. You lock eyes, the moment seems to be perfect, and he comes over to talk to you. And then he talks and talks, and maybe he even tries to kiss you. The longer this goes on, the more you realize how much it’s not going to work at all. What do you do?
There’s a story my group of friends loves to tell and retell again — it has to do with this very situation. One of my best friends was in this predicament a few years ago. She met a guy at a house party, thought she was into him, then after a few minutes of awkward conversation, and an even more awkward make-out sesh, she realized it was just not happening. So what did she do to make this moment so memorable?
She looked him straight in the eye and said the phrase so amazing, so absurd, that my friends and I still talk about it: “BRB, playa.” Then she got up off the couch, walked away, and never looked back.
It sounds a little harsh, right? But the image of someone actually saying “BRB” to get out of a conversation is so ridiculously hilarious, I had to share it with you all. And “playa”? Where did THAT come from?! If you do decide to use this line, make sure to let me know how it goes. Results may vary.
What are your go-to ways to end a convo when you realize it’s not going anywhere?
