Summer 2013 is a serious ’90s time warp. First the Backstreet Boys came back (all right!), and now Hanson’s “Get The Girl Back” is gaining major traction on the airwaves. I ain’t mad at it! Here are a few ways to “Get The Girl Back” (or just get her in the first place) by using that big heart of yours:
+ Group Date
Arrange a group outing to a local soup kitchen or homeless shelter, and invite your crush to come along with you and your friends. Group settings are a great way to get to know someone, and you’ll score major brownie points for planning something so kind. You also won’t have to drop the big bucks on dinner and drinks. Winning.
+ Charity Party
Throw a summer pool or beach party, and ask attendees to come dressed in clothes they’d like to donate to charity. Collect ‘em at the door, and enjoy the sight of your crush in a swimsuit all day long. You’re welcome. And the guy who throws the party is always the life of it, so even if your lady friend doesn’t fall for you, someone will!
+ Date Auction
Get a group of your boldest friends together and hold a date auction for your favorite charity. Since you can’t really control who bids on you, try to single your crush out while you’re on stage. It’s all about the eye contact, man! She’ll either get super-creeped out, or spend her entire paycheck on you!
+ Play Hanson’s “Get The Girl Back”
Eff being discreet. Play her the damn song!
