In the world of likes and follows, swipes and DMs, how can an interested human really get the attention of a person they’d like to get to know a little better?
Follow noted luddite Dean Ambrose’s lead, of course. Here’s how his wife, Renee Young, explained to Sam Roberts what made the Lunatic Fringe stand out from the pack of potential WWE Superstar suitors:
“I feel like everyone else was, trying to get my attention, maybe, and he was trying to play it cool. So I didn’t know this [was Ambrose’s tactic]. And people are always perplexed, like, ‘How did you guys get together?’
He doesn’t talk to anybody, but he always talked to me and I didn’t know because I didn’t know him prior, so I was like, ‘okay.’
He was very subtle in his approach, kind of, but the thing that threw me off the most about him, which I don’t think a lot of people do these days, is he would call me. He would, like, call me. Yeah, man! Like, my phone would ring and he was still in my phone as ‘Dean Ambrose’ and he would call me.”
There you have it. If you want to make an impression, use that computer in your pocket for something other than texting and posting and filming. Actually talk into the thing!
Who knows? You maybe might connect with your Renee Young that way.
