Are You High-Fiving Your Way Out of the Game?


Dear Provo-er,

This is a time for taking an inventory. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you oft ask yourself why you are spending yet another weekend home, with your only company being Ben and Jerry?
  • Have you found members of the opposite sex won’t take you seriously as a viable dating option?
  • Was your last kiss from your mother?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then here’s one more–do you high five on dates?

Keep in mind, when you raise your hand for that high five, you instantly earn yourself a one way ticket to the friend-zone. Do not pass go, do not collect $200 dollars.

Even guys after sport games slap each other on the butt. Not that I’m saying we should all slap each other on the behind….(then again, maybe yes….)

Think about it: if you’re ending a date, and you go in for the kiss, and she raises her hand for a high five? She basically just kicked your manhood. Right? Right.

Dating is hard enough. Do your part to make it easier on yourself and go for signs of real affection. Unless you’re on a team of some sort and you just crushed someone else, or you are encouraging children, probably leave that one out of your dates.


**Such are soley the views at The Provo Chronicles. Take that as you may.
