    Will Face A Storm When He Gets Home

    | The Netherlands | Dating

    (It’s morning, my boyfriend and I are at my home, getting ready for work.)

    Me: *looking at weather app on tablet* “Oooh! It’s going to be so hot out today!”

    Boyfriend: “Indeed it is!”

    (We drive to the company where we both work, with my folding bike in the back seat, so we can both go our ways at the end of the day, he by car and I by bike. An hour later…)

    Me: “Wow, this weather site announces huge rainfall and chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon! And I have no coat with me!”

    Boyfriend: “Yeah, I knew.”

    Me: “You knew, but didn’t tell me?”

    Boyfriend: “Uhm…”

    Party To A Great Relationship

    | Atlanta, GA, USA | Dating

    Coworker: “My girlfriend’s out of town, so I’ve had the place to myself for a week.”

    Me: “Oh really? Wow. Party at your place!”

    Coworker: “She’d probably be more upset that she missed it than anything else.”

    Me: “And do you know what we call a girl like that? A keeper.”

    Happy When Stoned

    | NY, USA | Engaged

    (I’ve just recently become engaged.)

    Boss: “Gee, suddenly you’re the happiest girl in the world.”

    Me: “I was always the happiest girl in the world. Now I’ve just got the diamond to prove it.”

    The Outcome Was Shiny

    | Germany | Flirting/How We Met

    (I have been trying to hit on a cute coworker for some weeks now, but she seems not to mention anything. As I’m very shy I’m not sure how to ask her directly but want to give it a try.)

    Me: “Uhm… [Coworker]?”

    Coworker: “Yeah, what is it?”

    Me: “Uhm… I… just asked myself if… Uhm… I want to know…”

    (At that point I feel that I’m blushing and that I’m about to start talking nonsense or about my nerdy hobbies.)

    Me: “If this was the Serenity and we were about to land on a planet would you like to hang out with me?”

    (I’m shocked about what I said and my cute coworker looks puzzled and then starts to laugh.)

    Coworker:Firefly to hit on me? Never heard something that geeky, stupid, and still cute. Yes, I want to go out with you.”

    (After that she started to call me ‘Wash’ and we’ve been dating for five months!)

    They Work All Night To Get Lucky

    | OR, USA | Flirting/How We Met, Top

    (I recently started a new job. I’m currently working evening shift, taking my lunch. The morning crew is starting to head home.)

    Coworker: *walking into the break room to grab her things* “Oh, hey. Late lunch?”

    Me: “Yep. Busy day.”

    Coworker: “Ah, well. Have fun. See you later!”

    (She starts to walk away.)

    Me: “Yeah, if you’re lucky!”

    (She stops in her tracks and turns to eye me suspiciously.)

    Coworker: “You’ve got to be pretty confident to pull off a line like that.”

    Me: *shrugs*

    Coworker: *sighs* “I wish I was cool enough to say something like that!”

    Me: “Well, maybe one day you can achieve my level of coolness.”

    Coworker: “I can only hope!” *laughs* “All right. I’m really leaving this time!”

    Me: “Okay. See ya!”

    Coworker: *whips her head around* “IF YOU’RE LUCKY!”

    (She storms off proudly, and I hear her say, ‘HAH!’ as the door shuts behind her. I am impressed for a moment before she scrambles back in, grabs her bag, then runs off again, this time tripping before slamming the door shut. That clever klutz is currently my girlfriend.)
