    God created the flirt as soon as he made the fool. – Victor Hugo

    The Only Thing That Changed Was Her Mind

    | USA | Flirting/How We Met, Young Love

    (Two years prior to this, I met a boy at the park near my house. I was a book-loving goody-two-shoes, while he was a bit of a bad boy who spoke about wanting to smoke and do drugs. He’d flirted with me, and being a naive 14-year-old, I hadn’t seen I might be getting into a bad situation. Though he’d asked me go out with him we lost track of each other. Now, I meet him again in the same park by chance. Before he sees me, I notice he’s holding a cigarette, and making several crude, racist, and homophobic jokes with his friends. Then, he turns around and recognizes me.)

    Him: “Hey, I know you! How you doin’?”

    Me: “Fine. I’m in a bit of a hurry, so I should probably get going.”

    Him: “Well, how about giving me your number first?”

    Me: “Erm, I’ll pass on that, thanks.”

    His Friend: “Come on, give him your number!”

    Him: “Yeah, I wanna get to know you better.”

    Me: “Dude, I said no. Two years ago, I didn’t see that letting you hit on me was a bad idea, and after the few sentences I’ve heard you say today, I feel even more so. I’m not interested, so if you could kindly f*** off, I would really appreciate it.”

    Him: “…You’ve changed!”

    (After realizing I was tougher than he thought, he backed off pretty fast.)


    | Redlands, CA, USA | Flirting/How We Met

    (I live in a wealthy beach community where the guys can be pretty full of themselves. I’m at a bar about 60 miles inland with my sister and a friend when a group of guys they know comes in. My sister introduces me to one guy.)

    Me: *shaking hands* “Hi, I’m [My Name].”

    Him: “Hi, I’m the cockiest ‘s.o.b.’ you’ll ever meet.”

    (He delivers this line with a broad wink, and I can tell he thinks it’s very charming. All the women and his friends at the table laugh.)

    Me: “Well, I live in Newport Beach, and you’re not even the cockiest ‘s.o.b.’ I’ve met so far THIS WEEK.”

    (His face completely fell and his friends start teasing him about being burned. Needless to say, he didn’t speak to me again after that.)

    The Girl Is A Hit

    | Copenhagen, Denmark | Flirting/How We Met

    (I’m a girl. I am at a party with friends, and I’m chatting with a really hot and cool guy.)

    Me: “So, how old are you?”

    Guy: “I’m 26. How come you’re asking?”

    Me: “Oh, I’m just making sure you’re over 18 if I were to hit on you later.”

    (I got very laid that evening. Who said girls can’t make a move?)

    Graduating To Real Men

    | Oakville, ON, USA | Flirting/How We Met

    (I’m walking through a park to the corner store when I see some high school kids sitting on the grass. I’m just about to graduate college.)

    Boy: “Hey, cutie, can I have your number?”

    Me: “Sorry, I think I’m a little too old for you.”

    Boy: “Nah, I’m a sophmore!”

    Me: “I’m graduating college.”

    (The poor boy went white then bright red!)

    Very Down Under The Rainbow

    , | NE, USA | Flirting/How We Met

    (My roommate is sitting on his bed, staring at the wall and looking glum.)

    Me: “Everything okay?”

    Roommate: “Well, I’m emotionally conflicted. I went to dinner with my study group, and [the girl he has a secret crush on] said she thinks my hair’s cute. So I’m full of rainbows and stuff now.”

    Me: “Then why don’t you look like it?”

    Roommate: “I just realized I only tipped my waiter 15% instead of 20% since our group was so big, and now I feel like s***.”

    Me: “S***ty rainbows, huh?”

    Roommate: “It’s a very odd feeling, believe me.”
