Let's be frank here. It takes a gift to woo the ladies in your direction especially the hot ones that went to your high school. Most guys in the world have issues or problems when it comes to picking up girls. I myself was never really a ladies man back at Darby. I played high school hockey but what killed my rep was being in the marching band, but come on. When you’re in a marching band as amazing as ours was and still is, it gives you pride and a sense of accomplishment. Unfortunately a lot of the other students (especially girls) never gave us second looks. Unless you were in the drum line because our drum line was always in shape and practiced with their shirts off every summer which helped in their efforts in search for women. 6 out of the 12 members picked up both the volleyball girls and cheerleaders. As for the gift it self being on just individuality it takes a trait too or just plain talent.
I didn't carry it, my dad didn't carry it and my grandpa never did either. But if your one of the few that did, or still do, then hats off to you my friend. I guess now that I'm in college it's easier because not everyone knows what was on in your high school days. It's funny because my girlfriend now came from the same backgrounds me (high school wise). She was an athlete from Worthington, played volleyball and did marching band but she is definitely NOT one of the typical bandies portrayed in Hollywood bogus films. So who else here struggled with “being on the scene” in high school?
