Once you grow a neck-beard and wear a fedora, chicks will think that you're flirting with them even when you're not.

are you coming on to me again, subby?

That pretty much defines my high school experience, in retrospect.

These days, no one notices an article that does not start with a number.

"If you are missing out that people are flirting with you at a place where people go to flirt, then that's on you."

ZING!

cgraves67: That pretty much defines my high school experience, in retrospect.


First year or so of college for me, which is crappy timing. I had been a shy nerd most of my life, but end of high school that had changed, and I wasn't quite used to the new dynamics. I mean, it's not like I never met anyone, but it had to be very blatant for me to pick up on girls being interested.

You have to be aware of the (sometimes subconscious) tells people have when they're interested, and once you recognize them, it's like a light gets turned on.

FTFA: Men, maybe it's time to be a little more obvious about your intentions.

WTF...one day telling a girl she looks like she could give really good head is offensive, and now it's not obvious enough.  Which is it?!?!

When I was in 8th grade a girl was being a pain in the ass.  I told my dad about it and he said that she was probably flirting with me.  "What's flirting?"  "It's when a girl is afraid you're going to reject her so she acts irrationally to ensure it."

You suck, dad.  I don't know what's more of a miracle: that I'm married, or that I'm even here!

A woman acting irrationally is flirting? Man, I'm knee deep in pussy and I don't even know it!

So that old lady who keep taking her false teeth out at Walgreen's is flirting with me?
 
2014-06-18 02:14:17 PM
Why am I the one who sucks?  Maybe they suck at flirting.
 
2014-06-18 02:18:18 PM
That's why I always give the ladies are hearty slap on the ass to let them know.

There was a girl who bothered me quite a bit when I was in 8th grade. It was actually even hurtful. Later, in high school, she became quite friendly and we spent time doing the same extracurriculars and she even infiltrated my association of friends. However, I was completely oblivious to the meaning of it. I thought she had a crush on my best friend. Many years later I would sometimes run into her when I was out and about and my wife would be quite hostile to her. I asked her why she didn't like my friend and she told me that the girl had a crush on me for years. WHA WHA WHAT? Then suddenly all the seemingly innocent events of the past streamed through my memory and gained new portents. My wife was right and I never knew it. It seems that I had inadvertently "friend-zoned" a potential partner at a time when I was desperate for sexual experience.

bingethinker: A woman acting irrationally is flirting? Man, I'm knee deep in pussy and I don't even know it!


Seize the day, my friend.  The girl was a little heavy and a little biatchy, but would have done well for my first.


cgraves67: my wife would be quite hostile to her. I asked her why she didn't like my friend and she told me that the girl had a crush on me


Yup.  I found out about a secret admirer in law school that way.  I thought the woman and I were buds; wife knew right away the woman was all the while sharpening her hooks.

Now it works in the reverse.  I know that I have zero opportunities at work because my wife is perfectly fine with all of my coworkettes no matter how gorgeous.  (Sigh) Oh well.
 
2014-06-18 02:43:22 PM
Eh, I gave up on figuring out that stuff awhile ago. I just realized I absolutely suck at guessing what someone is thinking, so I take the "blunt force" method of just being 100% honest and straight-forward in dating.

/Still single
//...This may very well be the reason why

Flirting?

I'm married.

Not that I could flirt before then.  I still don't know how I ended up with the amazing woman I have as a wife.

I had the opposite fortune of girls who dated me only in order to infiltrate the groups I hung out with. Sucks either way.

the only reason to Flirt is to Squirt.

When a chick finds out you have a fat wallet, she'll change her tune, whether she's flirting or not.

Please don't quote him. He's on Ignore. The reasons should be pretty clear.
 
2014-06-18 03:26:18 PM
It's simple: Either somehow know the woman is flirting, and then immediately ask her out, or don't and become friend-zoned while she farks more aggressive men.

That's it. Act or lose.

This "study" needs to be controlled for personality type.  When I went to a neuropsychologist (long story), I ended up taking all sorts of personality types, and discovered I was highly introverted, schizoid type (it sounds worse than it is).  The neuopsych, always the jocular fellow, told me that this meant a woman could be in the process of screwing me, and I still wouldn't be able to figure out if she was being flirtatious or not.

This basic inability frustrates my wife to no end, as our conversations usually go:

Her: she was flirting with you, you know.
Me: What?  No way, she was just friendly.
Her: she baked you cookies and gave you a long hug.
Me: I like cookies.
 
2014-06-18 03:43:46 PM
I usually figured out they weren't really flirting when I tried calling the fake phone number a couple of days later.

I believe you can check a box in the options that will automatically ignore individual comments that quote a person you have on ignore.

Unless it was "hey, do you want to shove your dick into my vag?" i never could tell.
 
2014-06-18 04:22:01 PM
I solved my inability to decipher flirting by getting married.

If you can't solve a problem, moot it, I always say.

When I say "M'lady" and then adjust my trilby that means I am flirting with you, when you look at me in disgust and horror that means you are a lesbian.

I've "friend-zoned" a couple girls. I actually find it creepy when a woman hits on me, because I force to wonder what horrid set of circumstances lead them to pick me, and I'm not sticking my dick in crazy.

I resemble that remark.

Wait...if making things for other people is flirting...ah, crap, I might have just hit on a girl.

I don't know how to flirt and plus I have a very difficult time picking up or reading non verbal cues because I always msinterpolate them. But more importantly, I find playing hard to get and not being interested almost indistinguishable. I don't have the heart or stomach for game playing and Im so used to being alone, Im more comfortable with it than the whole charade of tangoing with someone and their emotions just to arrive at a place we want to hurry to. 

I suck at flriting but I'm good at the real relationship stuff. 

It's like judging a chef by his appetizers and then not giving his meal and desserts a chance.
 
2014-06-19 02:00:09 PM
Dammit women, when will you realise that ALL guys are flirting with you all the time or they just don`t like you at all. For the purpose of this post `guys` are defined as `straight guys`.

Even if that is not completely true, it`s more true than what you currently think. You`ll be right more if you think that way than if you don`t.

NeuroticRocker: msinterpolate


Is that a new Little Miss character?

Does she do maths?

But how do I know when bartenders and waitresses actually like me? This is an everyday struggle for me.
