neuroses in small doses #1

"I have crossed some line somewhere I am starting to repel people I am trying to seduce." -Holly Hunter in Broadcast News

I used to love this quote and laughed whenever I thought of it. I still do. And now it encapsulates my ability to interact with the other gender. I briefly flirted with the idea of flirting with Someone At The Office. And my opening gambits reveal that my flirting skills are - pretty sad. Now Someone At The Office will not make eye contact with me in passing at the coffee machine.

Might have better luck relying on my bowstaff skills. Knock them unconscious and drag them to the restaurant with a bottle of smelling salts.

Pfst, so what. Ignore him right back. It happens, but you're hot!! There are a hundred other guys out there, hunt them down babe:-)

I'm offering a correspondence course in flirting, if you'd like to enroll.

oh my gosh, I thought it was just me, I also am now repelling men. This has been a hard thing to accept, seeming as how I didn't have much trouble in my 20s. I want to enroll in Groucho's corse.

I'm just wondering what you possibly could have done to make him not make eye contact with you!

a) he's shy and inexperienced and you flashed your boobs at him, rendering him speechless

b) you farted while attempting to flirt

c) he's blind and slightly retarded and thus has no idea what he's missing out on

just a few possibilities I imagined ;)

ldbug: I am good at pretending to ignore people. That was my old method of flirtation. Didn't work that well either.

gc: *laughs* With a comment like that I think this course of yours bears further investigation.

sfmd: We are a club, me and thee!

kat e: I've got to stop lifting my shirt at work, huh? (rolls on the floor in laughter) (yes, I am five.)
