    Burnie is completely hitting the Nail right on the head! with what he is talking about like you girls are too.! Hearing no or just no thanks. for me i can accept that.! but being laughed in the face and told to fuck-off.! like if you are just some type of a pathetic joke to them.!! has made me just lose all faith in just having any relationships..! coz beautiful girls like that only care about 2 things looks and money....not someone with with a heart..! like myself it has been done to me in the past and is just the worst way then just saying no to you.!!! But you girls are awesome it's 1 of the reasons why i have come to love watching ALWAYS OPEN.it's only 'Cause you girls just rock.!!

    Speaking of all this, when the hell are Burnie and Ashley getting married?

    They've been engaged for quite a while now!

    @burnie totally forgot about the couple he matched up at a panel because the guy wanted him to say hi to the girl- they got engaged at least, thought married too.

    I mean ... shouldn't Burnie technically take credit for every RoosterTeeth relationship?

    I think the way Burnie would ask out someone on the street is fine and not considered catcalling because he would treat them like a person and not like an object.

    Bethany FTW!  heart_eyes

    No means No. But when the one who said 'NO' to you, talks to you later,.. that means 'no sex, but lets talk about interests'. Still not a bad deal; unless you are the 'bed-notch' personality.

    'Wing-person' is a bit more political than you may think,.. they/we do the detail work you can't think of in the moment, & that's why you've asked them to back you up.

    Cheers to those who have had, and those who've helped! beers

    There is a meatboy letsplay with Meg and Burnie where Meg flat out says that it was Burnie and Monty that set them up. It is a really great story.

    I met my wife when she was on a date with another man. The guy left such a shitty first impression on her that she actually ended up going home with me that night

    Nonono. The reason "I got a boyfriend" works, is not that the girl is already "owned" by someone you respect more than her or anything like that. It's that we're applying for the position of Companion for the Unspecified Time Period, and you're already provided. Simple as that.


    "I have a boyfriend and I'm Lesbian" is reaching a bit, though.

      Either way, it still feels pretty shitty when a guy will listen to "I have a boyfriend" instead of "I'm not interested". I get that people can view unavailability differently than disinterest, but continually pushing when someone says they're not interested and only backing off if they say they're unavailable feels pretty disrespectful.

      It reminds me of online dating where no matter how many times a person's profile says that they won't respond to unsubstantial messages, they will still receive many meaningless few-word messages because sending them doesn't take much effort and the people who send them are too often rewarded (often by people who claim that they won't respond to them). And contradictions like that lead to people thinking that others aren't always sure what they want, so many people decide to play the odds and be overly persistent. It seems like a problem that will never improve since someone will always reward the behavior :/

      Not saying I am happy this is how male minds works, however the psychology behind the guy's thinking is: The boyfriend will kill or maim me, the interest comment is a challenge to win. Guys are no better than Elk or Peacocks in that regard.

    So Roosterteeth could totally do a match making game with the community and it would work, right?

    I feel like being approached by someone on the street can be really flattering and memorable in a good way-- what makes it a catcall is when the approach is like, an attempt at someone trying to assert dominance in the approach.  Like, getting real close, making stupid lewd gestures or being really suggestive, laughing as he does it, clearly playing up to their friends who are around them, telling someone she should wear shorter shorts or smile pretty, etc.  That's when it's definitely a horrific first (hopefully last) impression.  Unfortunately, the normal complimentary type of approach is a lot, lot rarer than the catcall.

    The weirdest thing is that i'm 20 and Burnie's method is the same one I've had since I was 15 I thought I was crazy the way I was doing it. oh and to be clear 95% of the time they say no but the rare yes stays with you a lot longer than the no.

    I never know if I make good first impressions. Like, I don't know if I had a bad first impression when I started to meet everyone from Rooster Teeth last May. And I don't know if I showed to Burnie last RTX, that I'm actually a shitlord now that I'm not in the hospital bed and responsive. He still follows me on Twitter, so I hope that's a good sign. Otherwise I try to make good first impressions with compliments and gifts.

    I get really anxious when meeting people. So whenever I meet someone, I always feel like I made a "bad impression" on whoever I was talking/meeting with after the fact because of that anxiousness. Admittedly, I've had this feeling at the 2 RTX's I've attended.

      I'm the same way. I'm an absolute mess of anxiety when meeting someone new. I'm going to NYCC this year and I am both super excited and absolutely terrified to meet new people there.

    I don't know why Barbara thinks she gives bad first impressions. Literally the day before this episode  was shot I ran into Barbara at a bar and introduced my sister to her. Later that night my sister said that it was the nicest encounter she's ever had at a bar with a stranger  barbara
