Worst Flirting Stories

How Not to Flirt With a Stranger

On Facebook Monday I shared the most awkward compliment I've ever heard (about a woman's patterned scarf): "It's so soothing, if your scarf was a food I'd eat it in a hot tub." And you guys delivered with your own strange compliments, which ranged from sad attempts at flirting to downright creepy passes! See the horror stories below and share yours in the comments.

  • ‎"Wow you smell good; you smell like schnucks! (a local grocery store)" — Ellen
  • "I once had an old man tell me I have a beautiful mouth . . . " — Allie
  • "How about guys on Facebook asking you to add them then as soon as you do they ask you to marry them? lol happened to me yesterday" — Deanna
  • "I once came out of a bathroom in a club. A guy was standing there and said 'I saw you come out of the bathroom. I find you cute and attractive.'" — Breanna
  • "A guy once walked up to me on campus and told me that he'd seen me around walking before. He then proceeded to tell me that every time he saw me walking, that he 'felt a tingle inside' when he saw me." — Tia
  • "I forgot the time when this old guy in a Hoveround at Wal-Mart saw my sister (who was 19 at the time) and said "Wanna ride?". We got away from him so fast haha." — Breanna

"Damn girl look at them hips, what you been eating?" I think my best worst one was, this guy walked up to me (on Halloween, so I was half naked and wearing makeup), tall dark handsome with a nasty scar across his cheek. He said "You are fucking sexy and I need a green card, you want to get married?" Made him show me his alien ID, he was for real, from Serbia. Spent the night dancing/making out with him in the parking lot (classy), gave him my number but nothing ever came of it. But we called each other husband and wife for a night.

You know, if someone came up to me and said I was cute, I wouldn't be offended. Even if a bathroom was mentioned lol. Give the people some credit for trying to be original. I can't remember anything particularly odd anyone ever said to me. I do have some amazingly offensive lines from people I was doing dirty things with at the time though.. oh my.

On the flip side, I'd like to hear if anyone has stories about a pick-up line that actually worked...

I tend to make small talk in long lines, and these guys behind me were friendly enough, albeit a little trashy (in a fixes up cars and likes 80's hair metal sort of way - nothing scary). I went as far as I could with an anecdote regarding their convo and then became very interested in my phone. They then proceeded to invite me to a BBQ. Total strangers, in line at the grocery store. I respectfully declined but then had to stand there for what seemed like hours until it was my turn to check out.
