Do Tell: Do You and Your Girlfriends Have Signals You Use When You're Out?

Do Tell: Do You and Your Girlfriends Have Signals You Use When You're Out?

One of my favorite things to do on a girls' night out is head to a bar for some dancing. My friends and I have been having dance parties since college and I can only hope we’ll be having them when we’re little old ladies, too! But the problem is, every time we go out, the guys just won’t back off. Over the years, we’ve come up with a handy set of signals we use to get away from such pointless attempts at flirting, including code words and hand motions. I have a feeling you’ve experienced this too so do tell, do you have signs to alert your posse that you want away from a guy? If so, what are they?

yeah, depending where we are. at bars, whenever one of us is like" i need to use the restroom, and you're coming w me" that's a sign that a "decision has been made to change something, such as the group of guys around us", and we decide what were going to do, and how were going to accomplish whats needed to get the desired outcome. for me, i have those certain girlfriends that don't even have to say a word, i can just read the expression, and that's all it takes.....same with me and certain facial expressions i make, to where certain girlfriends of mine know exactly what I'm thinking without me saying one word. its like we are riding the same energy wavelength, and words aren't necessary to communicate. we are there for each other, and the feeling is indescribable. our eyes and facial expressions speak louder to each other than words, and anyone else around would have no idea that we are communicating very clearly to each other without words, but with looks, facial expressions, and hand/foot movement. its nice to be able to know and trust someone well enough to reach that point.

We never really stray too far from each other when we're out so if one of us is being bothered we just walk off and the rest of the girls follow.

My friend and I text each other, stay together, or just make up some crazy excuse. We don't care if we see the loser guy five minutes later and he gets insulted he was ditched.

We have many code facial expressions and we may mouth the word "help" if we're being grinded on by someone truly creepy...but if we're ok we just nod to each other.

:ROTFL: I love the beer goggle motions Misjules!! at the club when one of us starts getting grinded by a random fugly/gross guy from the back, we reach our arms out towards our friends like we want a hug. Then it's ALL over. All of us girls walk over there w/out saying a word and start grinding the friend in trouble in a circle... then suddenly there's no room for the creepy guy! he either gets the idea and leaves in embarrassment, or gets even more turned on LOL in that case we all stop and just look at him like "Oh hell no. you're still here?"

Not really a sign, but my favorite thing to do if a guy won't go away is tell him one of us has to use the bathroom... then just turn our backs to him. It's so funny and they never know what to do :D

Its really hard not to be obvious and do the panic funny shaped mouth, bulged eyes look when someone is bugging you. I normally do that until they cross the line.. then i stop being girly and normally they realise im no one to mess with. One man had the missfortune of grabbing my butt after i had rejected him several times. I fractured his jaw with one punch..

If we were out in the summer, we'd bring up a fake beach trip we were planning. If we were out in the winter, we'd bring up a fake skip trip. Those key words were our signal that it was time to move on.

LOL...missjules, that's funny!! My friends and I just have facial expressions and the "get him far far away from me" look is hard to misread.

ohhh yess... ever since college we always look out for eachother when we go to bars and clubs. a few of my girlfriends tend to drink heavily and get a little wild and lose their judgement when it comes to guys and a few of them also attract weirdos for some reason. anyway, the signal is... when a guy is obnoxious or creepy and starts to lurk behind us we'll signal to the girl he's staking out by putting our fingers around our eyes like glasses. basically for us is reminding her that we dont approve and that beer goggles arent okay haha

Yeah, we make a P symbol with our hands if we need to go to the bathroom :) And holding up 1 finger means i'm fine; 2 means "please drag me away right now" :)

We dont really have any specific signals, but we all understand "the look"

Oh yes, one of my friends learned the sign language for "awkward" so if we're ever out in a large group, we all know if someone's stuck in an awkward moment! We're such a goofy group though, we do it even when it's just us around and we all know what it means.

Oh yeah we have signals and facial expressions. :D A few times we have gotten some guys kicked out of the club b/c they were harassing us and wouldn't take NO for an answer. But, we just try to stay together and we always go in two's if anybody has to use the bathroom etc. Ok I'm off topic now....lol
