Cute Local Girls

joe dawg,

what's up man. I'm in a bit of a quandry here. I'm studying overseas right now and during the first week met a few cute local girls. Being your typical college dude, I hooked up with the first one that jumped in my lap. Problem is that her friend's is much hotter, and I want a piece of that, but the other girl kinda thinks we're dating already. So Joe College, lend me some wisdom on how I can score her friend while keeping the other girl around the block as well.

In need of a game plan

in need of a game plan dawg,

I find it hard to believe that you’re being completely honest with me. Your email came from an NYU address. Local GIRLS, huh? I know better. Talk to me, In Need of a Game Plan Dawg. I won’t judge you.

But you do pose a good question, and I will answer it for the benefit of all of my readers actually interested in girls. The friend switch is tough - but do not be discouraged because it IS possible. Right now, you are off limits for her friend. And if there's one thing we know about girls is that they like guys who are off limits. If there are two things, they will gladly ruin a friendship to get a guy. They'll repair the friendship and ditch the guy a few weeks later, but you're leaving the country, so what do you care?

You being off limits, you can safely flirt with girl #2 because you're "taken." In the meantime, let things fizzle with girl #1. Don't be a dick - just be boring. She can't hate you for being boring, and if girl #2 finds you interesting, girl #1 will say, "I don't know why you want him, but you can have him." Though she'll probably say it in some foreign language. And then one day all three of you will get drunk and it's go time.

Thanks for writing. This was Joe College saying, “I’m not sure, but I believe it’s pronounced...”
