    Checking You Out In More Than One Way

    | USA | Flirting/How We Met

    (My mom sent me to the store to pick up a few things on the day of my high school graduation. I approach the cashier, who appears to be at least 30 years old. At this store, the cashiers tend to be really friendly.)

    Cashier: “Well, hello there, beautiful!”

    Me: “Hi, thanks.”

    Cashier: “How are you? Did you find everything? Can I help you find anything more?”

    Me: “I’m all set, thanks.”

    Cashier: “Wow. You’re really beautiful.”

    Me: *really off guard* “Uh… thanks.”

    Cashier: “What are you doing later today?”

    Me: “…graduating from high school.”

    Cashier: “Oh, cool, so you’re 18?”

    Me: “No, I’m only 17…”

    Cashier: “Oh. Call me in a year.”

    (I haven’t seen that cashier since then. I kind of wish that I had told the manager, but I was so weirded out that I just left as fast as I could.)

    Fountain Of Uncouth

    | TX, USA | Flirting/How We Met

    (I am working at a fireworks stand. By Texas law, shoppers are not allowed to handle the fireworks before they purchase them, so a staff member is assigned to help customers at each area of the store. Currently, I am stationed near a type of fireworks called ‘fountains’. Because most customers are unfamiliar with fountains I call out to them as they pass. I am a sixteen-year-old girl.)

    Me: *to a middle-aged man* “Sir? Can I interest you in some fountains?”

    Customer: “Honey, the only fountain I’m interested in is the one you’re running through naked.”

    Boy! What A Woman!

    | London, England, UK | Flirting/How We Met

    (I have a friend who acts like a tomboy. One day, as we are speaking with each other, we pass a boy who she has a huge crush on.)

    Boy: “Are you sure you’re a girl? Because you sure don’t act like one!”

    Friend: *seductive smirk* “I don’t know. Should I check? Or do you want to check for me?”

    This Future Time It Worked

    | Los Angeles, CA, USA | Flirting/How We Met

    (This was a four years ago, when I am a high school freshman. I have never had a girlfriend, let alone asked someone out. I am walking to school when I decide to stop by the nearby gas station to pick up a snack. When I get in line, there’s a girl in front of me.)

    Girl: *drops bag of chips*

    Me: *picks it up for her*

    Girl: “Oh, thanks. Haha.”

    Me: “No problem. And if you ever need help again, you have my number.”

    Girl: “I don’t have your number, though?”

    Me: “Ah, my bad. I was thinking two minutes ahead.”

    (I got her number and we’ve been dating ever since. She’s still the only girlfriend I’ve ever had, but I’m not complaining.)

    Should Go On A Diet For That Coke Break

    | NC, USA | Flirting/How We Met

    Coworker: “Have you seen the new [Soda] guy! He is so hot!”

    Me: “Sure, go ahead and go to break.”

    (Moments later she comes back looking embarrassed.)

    Me: “What’s wrong with you?”

    Coworker: “Oh, my god! I did the dimmest thing. I was trying to act all sexy to the [Soda] guy but everything went wrong. I was standing next to the cupcake samples and was going to eat one I front of him all sexy and I missed my mouth and instead shoved it at my nose and all of this while saying hey to him!”
