Things That 2000s Girls Did to Impress Boys

List Rules
Vote up the flirting techniques from the 2000s that make you the most nostalgic.

The new millennium brought some very strange phenomena with its arrival. People were busy picking out the perfect song for their Myspace profile, slamming their flip-phones shut with rogue abandon, and downloading the latest Hawthorne Heights album from KaZaA or LimeWire. In the midst of all that angst, teenage girls were doing what they have been doing for centuries: trying to impress teenage boys.  

This list celebrates the many ill-conceived plans you made to snag that hot eighth-grader with a Scene Kid haircut. Snap in your butterfly clips and slide on your Invader Zim sweatbands from Hot Topic, because we're taking a walk down memory lane. From loose-fitting Etnies to quoting every line from Office Space and Chappelle's Show, this list will help you remember what you've tried so hard to forget: all the ways that girls in the early 2000s tried to impress boys.

    You Found The Perfect Song For Your Myspace Profile

    What kind of mood are you in today? If you're feeling a little blue because your mom took away your Sidekick phone, try "Ohio Is For Lovers" by Hawthorne Heights. Mad because your crush forgot to IM you on your birthday? Try Aly & AJ's "Potential Break Up Song."

    Going for a soulful diva vibe? "Dilemma," Kelly Rowland's duet with Nelly was your jam. Maybe your crush is into rap, so choose carefully between "Without Me" by Eminem and "In Da Club" by 50 Cent.

    Did these belts ever grace the inside of your belt loops? No. Did they actually hold up your pants? Of course not. Did they look hella rad while you were fake-skateboarding with your crush? Absolutely.
