Going to send a bird some flowers for Valentines, but not going to be sad and put my name to it - just a cryptic clue!!

She lives in a house four doors up from me and I was going to put something along the lines of a date of birth of someone famous which the year would be 1953, i.e 53, i.e my house number.......but not that obvious!!!

Any ideas??

You're making her think way to hard. I'd simplify it for her.

Just put, Hey, theres a party in my pants tonight and youre invited! or maybe, Would you like to help me move something 6 inches? When she says what, say, 3 milliliters of sperm.

hehe, no

OK, try a scavenger hunt, like on the flowers will be a clue to a clue to a clue to you.

The way forward is for her to come back to the number 53, even then it's a big vague but clue enough!!!

Any famous people who are 53?

[Edited 2007-02-06 22:35:02]

Actually, too easy. She's a bright one. I need to ask a question where the answer is 53 and she'ss have to use the web to find out!!!

Dude, if you want a shagging, dont buy the damn snowglobe......and dont stalk her.

Quoting Cumulus (Reply 7):

OK, well lets make this romantic, eh? Does she have any trees in her yard? If so, then find a poem, prefferably Robert Frost (his stuff always had trees in it) that references the specific tree in her yard. Go from there, but use poetry as the clues.

Ah, well then make it classy. When she asks what youre gonna move 6 inches say 3 milliliters of sperm, please.  Wink

Great, but as I know bugger all poems (a few Rugby songs but that's entirely inappropriate!) not much help!

Write "I love you" or something similar 53 times?

Or just put your adress on the envelope?

Or just give her the enveloppe yourself and say, "I was gonna let a friend give it to you, but I want to stand a chance so I'll do it myself".

I have no idea, I wouldn't ask otherwise!!!


EDIT:-

Hangfire, just looked at Wiki link...!!

There is no bleeding way I'll send her a snow globe - what the hell do you think I am??(!!!)

Just to furnish you with the facts, she's a weapons analyst for the Royal Navy, 1st class degree with honours, bright as you like (tits to die for!) and recently divorced from a Tornado Pilot - get the picture?

Think of someone famous (but not too famous) I can give a year when he (or she) was 53.........

Ideally, someone relevant to something she may know (which is a stupid thing to ask as you have no idea what is relevant to her!)

Because that is the saddest thing ever!!! I might as well get down on one knee and tell her I love her and my world is not complete without her - not going to happen mate!!!

Right, how about this for size:-

She drives a Audi, so Audi was founded by a August Horch in 1899 so how about on the lines of get her to work his age in 1921 (which is 53).....too complex?

Yes, plus you know too much about her which could become embarrasing.

And you dont have to tell her you love her. Just go up to her door on Valentines Day, when she opens up the door, be smiling and say, these are for you, hand her the flowers. Then say, are you available saturday night for dinner and a movie, or dinner and dancing, or just dinner and then a walkk, or or just a long, fancy dinner. Dude, really, just make it simple.

Cheers,
Kyle

You want to impress the girl, not give her a headache.

Besides, even if she manages to guess the number.... how would she know what street to look for? Or even if the number is a housenumber!
