What to tell the girl next door... Contest [#permalink]

Okay so I just met the girl next door about a week ago and she has been over almost every night since. She's a totally cool girl but let's be honest here, I really gotta be focused on my essays & GMAT right now not spending late nights smoking hookah and whathaveyou

So here's the contest: What excuse do I give this girl next time she txt's or knocks on my door late at night wanting to hang out?

This is meant as an exercise in creativity not practicality (i.e. "Just tell her the truth!") so let's see what you got. I'll hand out some kudos to any particularly clever answers

I would give her a one-page resume and ask her to tell you where she fits in that resume.

Or, next time you are talking to her, just slip in a b-school essay prompt randomly. Like "Yeah, I love Coldplay too!! By the way, can you tell me about a time when you engaged with a community or organization?"

just invite both of them over and let them entertain themselves, while you work on your essays. let nature take its course from there.

Next time, she is at your place, hand over the essay drafts and ask her to proof read or give her some essays to write
I bet, she will stop comming over. BTW, you shouldn't be doing that, given the fact that, the flamboyant species what we call girls are rare and precious.

Hahah not a bad idea...I'll make her earn her keep by saying she can only visit me one night for every essay she proofreads

If she's a cool girl is this a friends-only cool girl, or a cool girl with more potential? If you show her your MBA drafts and tell her your score you might show her that you're a guy with your life figured out and know what you want out of life. That could have the opposite affect on her because I've had several women say that a guy that knows exactly what he wants, is on track to get it, and is motivated, determined, etc., is very attractive. This might have the girl wanting to move in with you!

"I'm really sorry, but could we hang out another day? I'm writing a few chapters of my biography (aka MBA apps) and I've promised my editor (aka essay reviewers) I'd have a copy sent over before [insert time]. I'll definitely make it up to you once this is wrapped up!"

Girls love writers. And on top of that, now she'll be wondering what kind of extraordinary adventures you've had that would warrant a book deal.

Mmmm, Men of Mystery.

Tell her you're washing your hair. That's what all the ladies seem to be doing when I ask them out...

"extra curricular activities" however not the kind that will help you get admitted to school but will relieve the stress of applying.

When i read this thread, I tend to get mental images of The Big Bang Theory, the tv show on CBS where the hot girl next door becomes friends with the geniuses that star in the show. Probably just coincidental that I thought of this

Hugh Hefner has a mini mansion in Portland (at TL's) and I happened to have the privilege to visit. Yes, TL has a cool pad

TL, I guess, you should have more parties and board games And ofcourse invite that Brazilian girl.. LOL.
