Once upon a time communication with your friends and neighbors was limited to face to face contact or by hand delivered notes written, by hand, on pieces of (gasp) paper.
Paper mail these days is pretty much limited to bills or that yearly $10 birthday check from your Grandma. It’s a relic of the past (although keeping up with your thank you notes at Christmas will make you a family favorite).
Want to look at narcissistic photos and read spam messages? MySpace is your one stop shop for all things shallow. I’m sure some people still hang out there, if only to check their account like a habitual tick. Just make sure you have selected the option to approve comments before posting to keep bands and businesses from posting unwanted fliers and promo deals on your page.
Long before iPhone came along BlackBerry gave its customers a faster way to communicate mobile to mobile than text messaging that was also free. Only BlackBerry owners know what it means to BBM (BlackBerry instant Message) and find great joy in the exclusivity of the cell phone chat feature that was the pioneer of mobile chat.
The best way outside of facebook to communicate with mass amounts of people at a time, blogging has become a staple in most kids’ lives, whether it’s reading them, authoring them, or both.
The only online video chat site dedicated to meeting people LIVE, onenightfriendfree exists as a platform to communicate with anyone from around the world in a real time dynamic way. And, to top it off, you can watch your live interactions afterward on onenightfriendfree TV to hone your communication skills and save for trips down memory lane.
Nothing screams exclusivity like twitter. Create a false sense of importance by touting what other tweeters you’re meeting up with and where. Even celebrities are doing it so you can meet up with them too, OMG!
5. The Telephone.
Kids these days don’t want to talk on the phone often. I mean who wants people to really know what you’re thinking by letting them hear the disappointment or excitement that only vocal communication can convey. Still, there are times when the voice functionality that your iPhone or BlackBerry provides is a necessity. Like when your girlfriend breaks up with you over text, you’ll probably feel the need to call her and find out what the eff is going on.
Email provides all you need to keep track of and in touch with everyone you’ve ever met. Gmail even keeps track of everyone you’ve ever emailed so you have a huge database of emails to spam next time you throw an event. Just do yourself a favor and activate Google’s drunk goggles so you don’t send an embarrassing late night drunk message to that hot chick you’re obsessed over.
3. AIM, Google chat, MSN and other instant messaging services.
Kids these days can’t get anything done if they’re not constantly chatting with their friends while they write their term paper, search for jobs online or locate the closest Thai restaurant in their neighborhood, which means keeping iChat open to keep them LOLing, all while getting stuff done.
Facebook is your one stop shop for keeping in touch with all your friends, family, co-workers, clients and networking circles. Have an event you want to promote? Make it on Facebook so you can annoy, I mean message, all interested parties with a push of a button. Need someone’s advice or help with a project? Post the request on your status update to see if anyone you know has the answers you need. Need attention? Post an emo update or poke a crush and watch the drama unfold. Facebook truly offers everyone everything they need for emotional and professional stimulation.
1. Text Message.
Afraid of leaving a freaked out nervous message on your crush’s voicemail? Send them a text instead, allowing yourself to write a composed, sane and low key message without the fear of your voice cracking. Running late for work? No need to call your boss and listen to them scream at you, just send them a text. Chances are they won’t yell at you in front of the entire office. That friend who talks for 40 minutes every time they get you on the phone? Chat with her over text instead. There’s a million and one reasons to text message instead of calling and kids these days use them all to justify their lack of ability to communicate for real.
Take the Summer Heat Back to School: California’s Top 10 Colleges to Find the Hottest Girls and Hottest Guys
By, Shandra LaMotte
The end of summer signifies only one thing- the beginning of another school year. In honor of this transition, onenightfriendfree has compiled a list of the top 10 hottest California colleges – those with the best student bodies! While some students dread the end of long days at the beach, some look forward to starting classes again. For students attending schools on our list, going back to school is certainly a lot easier when you can daydream about all the good-looking girls and guys in class.
The reigning champ, San Diego State University, won by a long shot – there were over 2x the amount of ‘hot’ SDSU onenightfriendfree users when compared to our 10th ranked school, Cal State Los Angeles. San Diego State also beat out our second place school, Fresno State, with a 14 percent increase in students described as hot. Moreover, San Diego was the hottest college city in California, beating out Los Angeles by 28 percent. While all of these schools had great looking student bodies, Southern California out-ranked Northern California schools overall with 29 percent more users indentified as hot.
California’s Top 10 “Hottest” Colleges:
10. California State University, Los Angeles
CSU Los Angeles’ School of Nursing is considered to be one of the best in the state of California. Ranked tenth on our list, we sure wouldn’t mind having any one of these hot students as our nurses to take care of us when we are sick.
9. California College of the Arts
A school focused on art and design, California College of the Arts is number nine on our list. With such a good-looking student body, who wouldn’t want to get a “bachelor of fine arts” from this school?
8. University of California, Berkeley
Known for its academic prestige, UC Berkeley was ranked as the third best university in the world by the Academic Ranking of World Universities. Coming in eighth on our list, these hot students are the complete package with both brains and beauty.
7. California State University, Fullerton
CSU Fullerton is well known for its esteemed teacher-training program. With its sexy student body, we would do just about anything to be one of these future teachers’ pets.
6. California State University, Long Beach
Long Beach State is rated as one of the West Coast’s top universities/masters institutions in student body diversity. As the second largest university in the state of California, that means that you are guaranteed to find yourself a hottie, no matter how diverse your tastes are.
5. California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
Cal Poly is known for its “learn by doing” philosophy. While this motto is academically geared towards agricultural practices, we have a feeling that with this hot student body, there is plenty of other learning by “doing.”
4. University of California, San Diego
With one of the best surfing programs and triathlon teams in the nation, UCSD has some amazingly in shape, hot beach bodies. That’s why its number four on our list.
3. University of Southern California
With its close proximity to Hollywood, along with its prestigious School of Cinematic Arts, its no wonder USC attracts students with movie star good looks. Hence the reason it’s ranked top three on our list.
1. San Diego State University
Playboy ranked SDSU the third biggest party school in 2009. Not only does the school have the hottest students in California, but its students also love to party and have fun. Number one on our list, SDSU sounds like the best school to go back to this September, here are just a few examples why:
So as school approaches and as you are searching for your school sweetheart, check out onenightfriendfree. Regardless of whether or not you attend these schools, you can meet plenty of hot college singles.
onenightfriendfree users meet in video chat sessions, where they use descriptive words or “tags” to describe other people. We calculated our results based on the number of onenightfriendfree student profiles tagged with “hot” by other onenightfriendfree users and the number of onenightfriendfree users in that particular college, creating our onenightfriendfree “hot student body ratio.” Schools with the highest “hot student body ratio” are considered “hotter” relative to other colleges on onenightfriendfree.
When a guy uses a pickup line on a girl the point of the interaction is for the girl to remain unaware that he is using a line. That said, it made the team at onenightfriendfree wonder about the story behind the art of picking up women.
In 1970 a book by Eric Weber called How to Pick Up Girls was published and was the impetus for building the community of male pick up artists that would flourish online in the early 90s when forums and chat rooms had their first hay day (1).
The Pickup Artist subculture got thrown into the media limelight in September of 2005 with the release of a book called The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists by Neil Strauss. Shortly thereafter VH1 aired a reality TV series about the culture called “The Pickup Artist” starring “Mystery” (Erik von Markovik) which made him the most well known pickup artist in the industry. He is known for his peacocking attire, which usually consists of a cat-in-the-hat type of hat and other outlandish accessories.
Nick Savoy, who co-created the Mystery Method Corporation (now Love Systems) with former business partner Mystery, tells onenightfriendfree, “There’s no such thing as a pick up line that “works”. There’s no magic phrase that a guy can memorize and will make women want him – people are more complex than that.”
Most of the guys in the industry will tell you the same thing, but we still couldn’t resist compiling a list of our favorite cheesy pick up lines in the hopes that you try one out on onenightfriendfree TV and send us the video to show us how you make it work!
