If You Want To Get Some, Stop Texting "Hey" And Start Making Plans

June 16, 2015 2 min read

Let's get the facts straight: in order to have actual, real, physical sex with someone, you need to be in the same room. Period. How can you make this happen? Text the person and request that they meet with you at a specific time, in a specific place. It really is that simple. Comedian, Aziz Ansari, recently gave an interview to the NYPost in regards to his new book Modern Romance, in which he makes some interesting and hilarious observations of modern dating culture. After conducting hundreds of interviews and sitting in on focus groups with NYU sociologist and co-author Eric Klinenberg, he observed this from the women in regards to their texts from guys:
“They said most of the texts are, ‘Hey, what’s going on?’ ‘What are you up to?’ ‘Are you doing anything tonight?’ ” “I realized that inviting someone to a specific thing at a specific time — that made women’s vaginas explode in our interviews."
It just makes sense. Your odds of getting laid increase if you can entice the person into the same room at the same time. Even if you are only looking for a no strings attached, casual affair, you can't leave it up to fate. You can't be vague in your invitations and you can't walk around all day just hoping you'll run into each other. Make a plan, dammit! Everyone makes plans, why aren't you making them with your hook up hopeful? And don't just send a 'hey' and hope that's enough. It isn't. You will get trapped in some hellish back and forth that doesn't lead anyone anywhere. You will only end up frustrated or bored and cease texting. Small talk is fine when you are killing time waiting for the bus, not when you are hoping to get in someone's pants . Try to be clever. Please. Be funny. You can do it. I know it can be hard when you are first getting to know someone. You may not want to put yourself out there totally, which is fair. But the thing is, it will all become clear soon enough. If the person at the other end of the message wants to get to know you, they will respond and engage. But you have to show your interest too. You show interest by making plans. I always know someone is into me when they try to find time to see me. If you are really interested in being with someone (even if just for a moment), let your actions do the talking. If the other person is interested too, they will follow suit. We waste so much time on conversations that go in circles and to what end? If you really want something, go after it. Otherwise, let it die. We are on this planet only a short while, why waste it on dull, tedious boring conversation? h/t: Jezebel

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
