Does this make me a pimp?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
The lady I've been dating most of this year really wants to get into skiing. Unfortunately, she doesn't have skis that are very good (and only one pair) so I've been looking for skis for her. So far I've snagged her some lightly used 166cm Nordica Beasts for powder, some 161cm Salomon Thrusters demo skis for early season conditions and now the 166cm Rossi B78s auctioned off here. She is excited about all of them. I've turned my girlfriend into a gear whore so does that make me a pimp?

PS - The long process of getting proper boots is next on the list.

So far, this sounds pretty minor league as gear whores go... I guess that makes you a pimple??

Lets take a new twist on this.
She is not a Gear Whore, she is a Quiver Queen!
You're not a pimp, you're a groomer for royalty!!!

Let me have some time with her!

No, you're a sucker...

...because she'll probably get good and run off with somebody else! Just kidding...actually, I think this is really cool. You've got a sport you really love, and now you're going to get your girlfriend hooked up and go skiing together...sounds like a relationship that's built to last...

Pimp no…but an interesting process of seduction…now the boots...wow!

Thanks Rio, I might try this at home

thread's useless without pictures...but, good for you. If you end up dating a long time or getting hitched, you'll combine finances: you get to pay for the equipment (or, she might pay for some of yours).

sounds like you're doing the pre-pimp protocol: luring her into the sport with small, incremental gifts.

when you splurge for that 2 week trip to So. America this August, then you'll have gone one step further.

but you won't be a true pimp until other guys on the hill start following her around and asking for her digits.

I would consider you more like a drug dealer. Start small, get her hooked, eventually she will be completely addicted to the sport.

Dude, you need a pimp hat and an furry overcoat to wear on the slopes when you ski with her. Make a fashion statement. :

That sounds like most people who ski at Vail!

I have a sweet pair of Volkl 724 EXP homo-skis that I would love to sell you. Seriously man, if she's just getting into skiing why go all gear whore on her? Get her a decent pair of skis, decent boots, custom liners and let her learn the sport.

Are you a pimp?

Well, if she tries skiing, and hates it, and then you beat her in the liftline when she cries because you're forcing her to get back out there, then turn on the charm and talk about how she has to do this for your future, for her future....

Private lessons with a woman instructor, works on so many levels.

You haven't taken the Powder Day loss exclusion into account. Hanging with the beginner GF on a powder day.

You aren't a pimp until you can do this:
