Screw Cupid: Question time!!!

weeklygeekAsk your readers to ask you questions about any of the books they want. In your comments, not in their blogs.

I was looking at the past weekly geeks topics when one topic really jumped at me. I have seen people do this of course, but I think it applies to me the most now. I’m reading a book called Screw Cupid: A Sassy Girl’s guide to picking up hot guys.

Screw Cupid is the guide for every woman ready to take her dating life into her own hands. Samantha Scholfield has many years of dating experience, and the techniques and strategies she reveals here were developed via extensive trial and error – and by consulting and collaborating with hundreds of women (and many men), and by refining the best of the extensive pickup advice that already circulates among men. The result: perfectly calibrated guidance on how to initiate a conversation – anytime, anywhere – and get right to a date, all without the guy knowing he’s being picked up.

Okay, first of all I know most of you are married but I also know that everyone might have gone through a period of time where they liked a guy a lot and probably hesitated to ask him out fearing what he might think of you?

Well, I know I did. There was this guy in my college whom I drooled over for almost a year. And he very well knew it. And no, even though he looked at me often, he never asked me out. I never asked him out either. I never even spoke to him. I just stared. I was such a dork. Then after a year, he slipped a note to my friend asking her out. I mean hello? Is there any decency left in this world?

Anyway, while reading this book I thought would I have acted differently if I had read this book before?

Okay, I’ll come straight to the question. I haven’t read much of the book yet, so I really want to know what you would expect in a book like this. Or rather what would you have loved to know when asking your favorite guy out?

Basically I’m going to review this book at the end of the month. So If you would like to ask me questions about the book, it would be really helpful.

  1. Oh my. DO tell us the sug that seems the most daring idea and the one that is the most ridiculous! Any that you will/want to try and then you MUST go apply that knowledge, come back and report EVERYTHING — we want to know all the juice details!


  2. Wow. To be honest, I’ve never had trouble asking out guys because I’m not that shy when it comes down to it. I figure if they like me, they like me. If they don’t, oh well! I don’t embarass easily.

    Here’s my question though:

    What do you think would be the most important lesson you’ve learned from the book?


  3. I guess I missed much of the content of this book as I started going out with my husband when I was 17 – he asked me out, so I haven’t had much experience with trying to find my own men – they came to me.

    Are you single?

    I’d want to know if this was funny and if you tried any of the tips – did they work?!! I love a bit of gossip!

    PS. I had real trouble commenting on your blog from my husband’s laptop – it just seemed to freeze. It seems OK now, so not sure what the problem was. I just thought I’d let you know why I haven’t been round very much last week.


    1. Oh..I didn’t know there was a problem. I don’t think I have done anything with my blog rather than change the color. Thanks for letting me Jackie, I’ll look into it.


  4. I dated a lot before I met my husband, but never asked a guy out. If I flirted and he didn’t ask me out then I didn’t lose sleep over it. I think the best advise is to be yourself, so I’ll be interested to see what kind of tips they give.
    I would be curious about what they say about where to meet someone these days. I have so many friends fiding dates (sometimes souses) online.


  5. hahah! Things like this always happen in college 😀
    I know, I have been there and seen it happening LOL!

    My question is – “Can teens [ in college] really use the advice? If so, I would like to see a few examples of advices”



  6. Married, but I’ll throw in my two cents. 🙂 How does one gain the confidence to ask a guy out? Should she be straight forward or try to be friends with the guy first? (And I’m part of that camp that thinks girls and guys cannot be just friends!). Anything NOT to do?
