So, if a guy walked up to you and started hitting on you with poetry (good poetry I mean, not stupid stuff) what would you say or do?

Not really my style, but it would probably make me smile so I would give him a chance.

Roses are red, violets are blue.
I want you to be my kangaroo.
Please don't be a cockatoo.
Give me your number.

That depends on the poem, I suppose. It needs to make me laugh.

I would look it up and find out if they are in the habit of stealing other people's work to make themselves look good.
Same with singing.
Anyone can copy and it won't impress me.

*sigh*

Why girls only?

The women I used to fall for were all artistically endowed. Writing was the one with which I had the most affinity.

Bout going up to random women and spouting bad poetry isn't going to get you anywhere. It's all in how you present yourself. She might fall for the honest clumsiness of your attempt. She might fall for the situational romance of it all. She may fall for you as you bare yourself in a poem on stage. She may not fall for you at all.

Each woman is different in each case, and the best thing to do, (and the best thing for each person to do, regardless of gender), is just be yourself. When you fail, take your punches, and move on. Eventually you'll find the right person.

*scrolls up*

Besides, why compare VampsKiss's beauty to a rose, or BlueOni's fairness to the moon, when I'm afraid all roses would wither in jealousy and the moon would darken in comparison?

Randomly? I'd be a little weirded out. I mean it really depends on a lot of things (including what poem). But mostly I'd think/ hope it was purposely to be funny and break the ice, because I wouldn't be able to take it serious. I like poetry and I'll read it with a SO but if I guy came up to me, no thanks. The thing is most romantic poetry can be intimate and that requires knowing a person not just find a random pretty face.
But don't get me wrong I'd be polite about it.

Psssh who needs poetry when you are as dashingly handsome, wickedly clever, and gentlemanly as I am?

Well, I mean I almost never leave the house but if I did I could totally make all the ladies swoon.

I'd probably ignore him.

I would be secretly happy, but not outward sexual. Though to be fair, I'm a girlsexual.
