Does it tick you off when guys hit on you, or do you find it flattering?

Or both? Or does it depend on how they do it?

  • Depends on the guy and how he does it, also how old he is. I had the guy at Subway hit on me last week, and he was only like 18 or 19 (I'll be 31 next week). He started with, "I know you're a lot older than me..."; that didn't help him. I tried to be nice and explain to him that I was in a relationship and very happy, but he kept pushing ("Are you sure he'd mind?" "Yes, I'm sure. He's told me several times I'm not allowed to date other men." "Well, he doesn't have to know..."). Finally the lady behind me told him, "Honey, she doesn't want to go out with you. Now, will you quit holding her food hostage and let her go?" lol. I found him to be slightly sweet and also slightly annoying. The fact that he was so young, though, really annoyed me.

  • Depends on my mood and how they are doing it. If it's pretty innocent, it doesn't bother me. If they are going out of their way to make it known to me that they are hitting on me or making loud comments to me, that pisses me off.

  • It depends on how they do it. My DH thinks it hilarous when other guys hit on me, just because they are waisting their precious scoring time with me when it will NEVER go anywhere. lol

  • When I was younger(22-26) I used to enjoy it because it kind of validated that I didn't loose my sex appeal after 2 kids. Now at 29 I'm sick of it!!! I want to beable to walk down the street or go to the corner store with out being hit on! I have 4 kids now and I don't need nor want the hastle of dealing with another loser!!! I am happy single and have no need for the drama of a needy mama's boy!!! When I find a man who can hold his own and wants me for my mind and not my body that'll be the guy that gets my time and attention!!! But until then I have an invisble stamp of F off on my forehead!!!! But when I'm feeling down it is a nice pick me up!!! NO I"M NOT VAIN OR CONCEITED, I'M JUST NOT A SEX OBJECT(anymore!!!)! LOL.

  • When I was married, it made me uncomfortable and it seemed inappropriate for any guy to "hit on me". I guess as a single woman I would be flattered ...but only if he was a nice guy,not some kind of scummy sleazy guy,you know?

  • It depends. If its a cheap come-on, uh no. Not flattering. If I have my son there and the jerk doesn't even bother to look at my left hand to see if I have a ring on...not flattering. But if I'm out with the girls and I look nice and someone offers to buy me a drink it can be flattering...even though I have to turn them down!

  • Depends. There is this one gate guard that hits on me. He calls me trouble, asks what I'm up to, stuff like that. He has done it in front of my husband who was home on R&R. I didn't know what to say, I don't know why this guy does this. I thought maybe he does it with everyone, but I asked my neighbors, and he doesn't do it with them. And, he won't say anything, or act like he has ever said anything, if another gate guard is there. It bugs me because he obviously knows my husband is deployed. AND, he's there, guarding the military housing.
