This is a something from quite a while back, but I tried to update it a little bit. Not that things have changed much, other than my enthusiasm for having it happen - which is what resulted in my summer flirt contest. Sometimes my mouth tends to get me into something interesting trouble!
What is your reaction to a guy hitting on you?
As I get a little older, it’s an invigorating experience. Some nights, if I see a really hot guy I’m like “Oh, hit on me, hit on me!” It's one of those things that can lead to some fun conversations ... even if I'm very committed to my husband.
It totally depends on the guy’s approach, and the moment. I tend to be a lot more open and flirtatious when I'm out with my girlfriends than I am when I'm out with my hubby - even at those lifestyle clubs. I’m a little too coy for the usual pickup lines, so I find them kinda corny and tired. Some guys might mistake my giggle at their bravado a blow to their ego…
What really works for me is a guy who has some sincerity in his approach. Flattery always works, but it has to be real. No “Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?” come-ons. I like a guy who can comment on the way I look, or dance, and seem like he means it – even if he really is only looking to get into my panties.
I could spend most of the night flirting and chatting with a guy who meets my attractive criteria – and can hold a conversation with me – if he simply says “That’s a very nice outfit on you. Did you buy for a special occasion, or just a night out?”
Honesty is also a great pick-up. “I noticed you dancing, and I think you’re cute/sexy/hot/etc. Can I buy you a drink and talk for a while?”
What rarely works with me is if some guy wants to sidle up to me on the dance floor and expect a little bumpin’ and grindin’ to the beat. No way, Chuck….not a chance with me if that’s how little you think of my integrity as a woman. I might look like some action, but you’ll get nothing if you think you’re all that and can just expect me to swoon.
Now, keep in mind, I am a happily married woman and the chances of a big score are very slim (unless you’re Tim McGraw and then no rules apply). But I am a big flirt, I love to dance and party…and chances are you’ll still have a great time with me even if there’s no sex ;-)
