When Was The Last Time Someone Flirted With You?


Yesterday we were returning " an item" to Marks & Spencer when the salesman kept presenting me with paperclips that had been attached to the sales receipts.
I was a bit perplexed by these theatrics and as we walked away with a credit note I  asked Chris
" what was all that about?"
Chris raised his Roger Moore right eyebrow in amusement
" He was flirting with you" he said somewhat drily.

Well I was made up!
Even though I hadn't got a clue what had occurred it is always nice to think someone may have made the effort to flirt with me, even though it was through the medium of a bent paperclip!

Who was the last person that flirted with you?
Answers on a postcard please.....

  2. I've always said that I knew when I gotten old was when "The men that flirted with me wore elastic pants instead of zip and button up pants."

    I'm obtuse to flirting too...

    1. Elastic pants can be so liberating

  3. I've reached the stage of life at which women become invisible. Although I will say a very fit and handsome grey-haired gentleman stopped to bandy a few words with me in a parking lot last week. . . .

  4. I never seem to recognize when I'm being flirted with (assuming it ever happens). I'm a bit perplexed how a paper clip can be flirtatious, though. Which I suppose is why I never recognize flirting when I see it.

  7. A rather tasty checkout girl at my supermarket recently either had something in her eye, or was winking at me. I suspect that it was the former.

  8. It's usually clients flirting with me at work when I can't tell them to take a hike.

  9. Babies in the grocery store flirt with me all the time. I flirt back.
    There is one woman who used to work at the grocery store where I shop. Sadly, she is now at another store. I truly enjoyed the attention. Plus, she was sorta hot.

  10. Must have been some time in the 80s...
    Paper clip?

  11. I am such an ugly, miserable s.o.b. that nobody would ever think of flirting with me...and I haven't got badger paws either.

  12. I'm 60 and invisible, even to my husband. Oh well. They don't know what they're missing! ;-)

  13. I became invisible many years ago, John, so I can't remember when anyone flirted with me.

  15. Ahhh...can't remember. When we left school (some 35 years ago...arghh!) two friends and I laughingly went on a day's jolly describing ourselves as on an 'old bats day out'...we still go out occasionally...but now the laugh is on us!

  16. oooh there is nothing like a touch of harmless flirting

  17. A long, long time ago John in answer to your question, so go on - a bit of gentle flirting would not come amiss.

  18. The only people that flirt with me are babies or men old enough to be my Father hmmmm.

  19. I think I'm too grim looking (have the German curse of the 'resting bitch face' to be flirted with. Nobody tried, even when I was in my 20s. The other day, though, at the supermarket one old man called me a "good girl" for having returned a shopping cart to the corral, and another old man told me that cereal makes you fat. Does that count? It's kind of like paper clips.

    2. I wish that I had come up with it, but I stole it somewhere. I think it's what the people from 'Saturday Night Life' say about the German chancellor Angela Merkel. So funny and so true!

  20. I'm with S.J. Qualls, above. About 30 years ago, I think - although I'm not QUITE sure if it was a deliberate flirt. Still thinking about it.......

  24. A young man with beach-swept blonde hair, the build of a surfer and a naughty twinkle in his Celtic blue eyes once flirted with me in a coastal grocery store. It was long, long ago but, by golly, I've never forgotten it. :D

  25. I've enjoyed the "postcards" as much as the post. Maybe you should graph the results, although there will be a long flat line between most of us and you.

  26. I think flirting contributes to the spice of life. Last time was at a neighborhood Christmas party. He flirted and I flirted right back!

  27. The fashionable beer of the time was Carlton Cold and the barman at the gay venue said, "I love the way you say that", when I ordered "Two Carlton Cold, please". I had to think about what he said before the penny dropped.

  28. If offering someone a paper clip counts then that would have been just a week or so ago, and the target would have been a bearded man whom I have no interest in at all; but prior to that a young lady who would doubtless have been outraged and astinished in equal measure. I'll keep my paper clips to myself in future. I had no idea of their significance. There again, there was the middle age lady who I told "had a nice top", and then embarassed myself by trying to explain that I meant her colourful blouse not her eh, top... then became even more flustered when I felt I had to nonetheless tell her that her actual top was very nice as well, etc... and thus I sunk deeper into the hole that I was digging while she just smiled at my foolishness. Thank goodness I didn't make things a thousand times worse by offering her a paperclip.

    1. Oh. I misread your question. Last time someone flirted WITH ME? A lady offered me paper clips three weeks ago, as she had ordered a box and didn't realise it would contain several hundred. I declined the offer. Perhaps that was ungallant of me. Or perhaps wise.

  30. I flirt I cant help it. I dont know if other people flirt with me... I doubt it, other than Papa Smurf who offered to buy me a drink on the girls Christmas night out and one of the girls told me I gave off enough 'f; off vibes' I could have killed a small dog. (he was dressed as a smurf and had a real beard)

    2. the look is the Evil Eye mixed with a dont touch me else I will ripe your arms off. Apparently it is very effective. There were no small dogs around so I was safe to throw that look around.

  33. Watch it, new Taylor Swift song coming, "I've got a paper clip....and I'll clip your name".

    Last time for me? Hmm, a few years ago, was in the drive thru at a fast food restaurant with some friends, I was driving, had an oddly prolonged interaction as we were getting our food and as we drove off, my friends said "um, hello, he was totally flirting with you". I was clueless...

  50. LIke you my problem is I miss when it does happen... last century probably!

    Ah - one I didn't initiatially spot was when rehearsing for a new band thing with a music community project a few months ago. One of the ladies made a comment about "what a lovely colour your guitar is".... I gave her a lecture about the model, the woods involved, the interesting style of neck joint peculiar to that model only and she wondered off. The drummer just shook his head and point out to me that was a flirt I was supposed to talk about her... not the guitar... oh well... ;-)
