“OMG I LOVE YOUR COAT” AND 5 OTHER THINGS YOU CAN SAY TO A POTENTIAL NEW BESTIE

The holidays are a time of gathering around the hearth, drinking ample amounts of egg nog, and wearing sparkly velvet dresses. Therefore, it is also an ideal time to invite new ladies into your crew. So, to help you out we wanted to re-up your pick up lines because the simple ‘come here often?’ just isn’t festive enough. Now, no matter where you happen upon a potential new vina – in line shopping for gifts, restocking your holiday hoard, or taking a break from the family that has descended into your house – you’ll be ready to make a connection.

“HAVE YOU TRIED THIS? I WANT TO STOCK UP ON SOMETHING GOOD.”

Perfect for a wine shop, cheese shop, or chocolate shop. Pick out something that looks yummy, and while debating its delicious virtues, lean over and ask your potential vina her opinion about the product. Then ask her if she has any other suggestions! The chat goes well, feel free to invite her to your gathering.

“IS THIS REALLY THAT GOOD? THERE’S SO MUCH HYPE AROUND IT EVERY YEAR”

Perfect for waiting in line for coffee. You can the reference special holiday flavors, gingerbread mocha pumpkin cookie madness, and bond over your shared love or disgust over all the flavor-related fuss.

“I LOVE YOUR COAT! I SWEAR IT’S GETTING COLDER EVERY YEAR”

Perfect for pretty much any place as soon as the cold months come on.

“I COULD LIVE IN HERE, IT’S SO WARM!”

Perfect for walking out of a hot yoga class (or any other work out class), dripping in sweat, and having already energy bonded.

“I’M LOOKING FOR SOMETHING FESTIVE, SOMETHING VELVET, SOMETHING THAT SAYS…”

Perfect for when you’re out shopping alone. I met one of my best friends while she was working in this cute boutique. I’d gone in looking for the perfect dress to go to this party because I liked this guy, (classic story I know) and she helped me try on a dozen different styles. By the time I left I she knew my whole life story and was meeting me at the party later that night!

“DO YOU HAVE A GOOD RECIPE FOR…”

Perfect for connecting with a friend of a friend. Often times during this season we are thrown into many a situations with acquaintances. This is perfect to open the lines of communication. Or it’s great for talking to a total stranger at the grocery store. You can scope out their cart and see if they’ve got anything creative to add to your menu.

Share your festive friend pick-up lines that work and the ones that don’t. We want to hear them all!

    I’m an Air Force spouse who is in her very early 50’s and having a hard time accepting that, as I don’t feel a day over 35! I’ve just arrived in Gautier, Mississippi from California, but I’m originally from London, England and love to walk my beautiful little dog Ruby 🐶. I’m loving the South and would love to make some great friends here as we’re planning on putting down roots when my other half retires from the AF in a couple of years. Hope to hear from you all soon 😘❤️😁
