Nice weather, huh? What’s your sign? Perhaps it’s time to freshen up your conversation starters. If you’re in the market for a special someone, trying letting your t-shirt do the talking for you.
A t-shirt with a funny saying or unusual design can easily spark a conversation. Start thinking of t-shirts as personal ads. They’re a way to show off your personality and interests. Hey, you gotta get dressed, right? Why not don a shirt that could help kick your love life into overdrive.
We all love to be around people who make us laugh. If you can get a smile out of that cutie sitting next to you on the bus, you’ve got an opening to introduce yourself. T-shirts with funny sayings are hugely popular right now, so shopping for one will be easy.
Sometimes we all enjoy a bit of “potty humor” or laugh at an offensive joke. But if you’re looking to meet a special someone, you should probably steer clear of the lewd and crude. Or anything that indicates you like to party until you pass out.
What social issues matter to you most? Who do you plan to vote for in the upcoming election? Wearing a t-shirt that expresses your opinion on a social or political issue can be a great way to meet someone who shares your values. You could even invite them to a meeting or rally.
Bands, movies, and TV shows
Are you a diehard Beatles fan? Have you memorized every line of The Godfather? Sport a shirt featuring a pop culture reference, and you could meet someone with similar tastes in movies and music. A shirt with a classic movie quote is always a winner, and it’s a natural segue into asking them out to the movie. Concert shirts are cool, too, and they present you with opportunity to ask them to check out a new band that’s playing this weekend.
Hobbies and interests
Whatever you love to do, there’s a t-shirt out there that says it. Try a shirt featuring the logo of your favorite sports team or a print of your favorite piece of art. You can also wear shirts indicating you belong to a particular club or team. Next thing you know, you’ll be inviting them to the opening of the Impressionist collection at the local museum. Having things in common is the foundation of a strong, healthy relationship.
Announce your singleness
If you’re feeling bold, just come right out and say it: I’m single and looking! It could actually serve a practical purpose. We’ve all spotted a looker but opted not to chat them up thinking “Someone that good looking can’t possibly be single.” Your shirt would clear that question right up.
Time to trade in your plain white tees for something with a bit more personality. Be funny, be provocative…you can even be downright desperate! Maybe that last one isn’t the best idea. Whatever style you go for, next time you’re shopping for tops, keep personal ads in mind.
