Brits tell it like it is (and wear neon sports bras)

I had an extended conversation last night with my fantastic friend from college, Sam, and a portion of our chat was devoted to the ridiculousness of dating in our generation. I'm planning to delve into some research on this, to bring voice to all the craziness and carryin'-on, because it drives me crazy and it drives a lot of my friends crazy, too. (In fact, I've already written one article on this, in case you're interested.)

Right now I'm listening to my Britney Spears Pandora station, and upon listening to a classic song from my youth, I discovered there's some pretty good stuff there that pertains to this topic.

The Spice Girls really offered some great dating advice (not to mention some great outfits). Or, a line, I should say, to use on people one is interested in:

If you wanna get with me,
Better make it fast
Now don't go wasting my precious time

Sing it again, Sisters! I am tired of people wasting my time! If you're interested, let me know; don't leave me hanging.

This is not the first time I've found something notable in this song, actually. Back in the day I thought "Wannabe" would be an appropriate wedding reception song (well, it is) because of the declaration that if someone wants to be with you then he better be OK with your friends.
